i’m a joke

with one comment

[tweetmeme source=”anismiles” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D

I’m a joke
may be, a laugh.

Don’t trust me
not worth it
I come cheap
and easy
like wild scrubs
at every nook
and cranny.

Never taken home
but, used
and cast away
and laughed at
worst, ridiculed sometimes
I’m not worth it.

Sisyphus: slow – silent – violent – slow

with 3 comments

[tweetmeme source=”anismiles” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D

Slow
is his climb
up the hill
tethered to Gods
stone Gods
full of gaze and words.

Silent
is his manner
on the top
he sits alone
drenched in sweat and tear
until he is pushed down.
Gods laugh and merry
fingers pointed at
their falling dolly.

Violent
is his fall
down into creeks
great Sisyphus
turned into stone
by the light of morning
doomed to disappear
without meaning.

He knows not
why he does what he does
his destiny chained before
he was even born.

Again

Again
the heart is broken
in thousands pieces, she says
and this time
there is no turning back
this is no hole, she sighs, to fill up
this is a big crack.

Again
across the window
I see things that glow
angels flying down to take me, she says
I’m going away, farther than you can reach
time and again, I tried to repair
nothing touches me now, no love, no beseech.

Again
I sweep the floor
dirt and tears come along
I know what to do
get a box and fix it up with some glue
you can’t fix it, don’t you see,
she growls, you can’t un-rape me.

Lost and never found

with one comment

[tweetmeme source=”anismiles” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D

All that I am or I pretend
sullen dreams of bleak end

Lost and never found
fallen leaves on the ground

Truth is a lie in disguise
solemn words of a skewed voice

Flowers sprawled by the riverbed
roots entangled into the mud

I seek love and love seeks a clown
run away before you’re drowned

I have a paper heart

with 4 comments

[tweetmeme source=”anismiles” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D

I have a paper heart
too easy to rip off my chest
fold, twist and turn
into
city, house or nest.

Around me, I’ve made collections
of ceramic vows, muddy tears
china-stone celebrations
all cornered into
dirty crumpled affections.

You and I glued into a story
tragic like always, but fairy
inking the ends together
with dull colors of cherry
scary!

A dull night

with one comment

[tweetmeme source=”anismiles” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D

It’s a dull night, tonight
nothing, but a struggling candle by your banshee
catches my sight.
It’s far away, I know, but it’s the only light.

I hope you don’t misunderstand me
when I walk across your house, and call thee
I know you’re held’ up,
customs and rituals often kill love.

I know, but this one path
sprawled from where I stand
to the hopes of you holding my trembling hand.

I wish

I wish I had the grit
to write poetry with splendid wit
words engulfed in words
silence entwined with surds
I wish I could name
the feeling that
hung on her every breath
fill in the hush
gaping from her droopy eyelids…

Ah but
she calls me from every direction
and I stray far too often.
