They all Failed

Her trauma wrote what her future

Would present.

Poems written out of desperation

For someone to save her.

Atlas, no one heard her cries

In the darkness or at sunrise.

Fearing the wind would whisper

Her secrets to a stranger

Maybe then she would find a savior.

Years grew over her soul

Like a house full of bones.

Her inner sadness trapped inside

To never once show its eyeless mask.

Old enough to understand

What she suffered was more common

Than having a friend.

Long ago, she was i

And I was she.

Now I have come to sense

They all failed me.

Piece of Cake

As I toil with their expectations

Knowing I’ll never be free

Or be what they want me to be.

The perfect daughter or the perfect wife

I seize to be what they want from me.

Exhausted of trying so hard

To receive but a taste of the cake

I helped create.

What we built has only been based

On the equation of my mistakes.

He plays his games with my heart

To pretend he will change even if it’s

Just for a part.

The words he sarcastically deem

Upon this selfless soul

Who will always, somehow, feel alone.

I refuse to be a piece of my downfall

In the years to come.

Definition

As the darkness begins to diminish

I see the hourglass of your figure

At the end of the tunnel.

Your ocean eyes

Full of mystical surprise

Lift me up into a Heaven I’ve never known.

You are a spirit that has seeked me in another life

A beautiful soul full of guilt and strife

For your secrets are mine to keep

Forever shall they lay within my coffin

On the day I die.

You are the definition of what man should be

So lucky she is to have you in her bed

To caress and hold

While I am cold..

your side is empty in my mind

While I live day by day

Filled with love and pride.

What I would give for you to be mine

On a day that may never arrive.

You would let me go

To someone you’d never know

But in my heart, I’d break

Knowing you’d never fight for the Love we have

Simply because you belong in another life..

Fate Interfered

Though our stories are not combined

We will forever be by each other’s side

Even if it’s in our minds

For our Love is already entangled like a vine.

Who you are is what I deserve

As I am who you wish for.

Nor the ocean nor the moon

Can separate what fate has renewed.

You and I were made to be together

For the circumstances and events

Have aligned for us to be a part of each other’s lives

As it was written before our time.

My Truth will be Heard

If I simply murdered my secrets

You’d be taking steps into the gates of hell

Since behind the many masks I wear

Is a darkness that will never tell.

An abyss formed long ago

When his hands and weight captured

My fragile innocence.

After years of bottling the loath

It is time to let it all go.

So young to believe

Her own family would conceive

Such a monster who only knew deceit.

Finally, a part of me has laid to rest

And forgiveness was the final test.

The Demon Within Us All

As the lies fall from the sky

While looking into his empty eyes.

Fire blazing from his hands

Only beneath his skin

Lies the broken man.

Corruption runs through his veins

As he consumes the river of shame

Because to him this is all a game.

Malicious in every way

Who can blame

Since he was born this way.

A lonely soul with no one to hold

Soon, he will meet his end

By a pure of heart

Whose tears will relinquish the demon hiding

Underneath all the sin.

My Unborn Child

Dear child of mine

Under the moonlight

I recall the night

Feeling you grow

There was no way to know

Of what was to come.

I dreamt of you sitting by the river

Smiling and laughing

Oh, how every year

I think of you.

I remember the screams

As I saw the blood on my sheets.

This year, you would’ve been five

What wouldn’t I give

Just to have you by my side.

Those months after you died

Were the hardest of my life.

I forever dream of the day

We shall meet again.

The time has come where I must

Forgive myself and let you go.

For you will always be entangled in my soul.

Te amo mi niño querido…

Explore the Unknown

Gravity pulls us down

From those dark clouds.

Let us dwell Into the unknown

And never once resist

In fear of letting the other go

Because we both genuinely know

This is something just as close

As a prophecy being told.

Let love rule over you and I

With every moment we spend alive.

With the quill in our hands

We shall write of the lessons

We’ve learned

Because life has only just begun.
