Let me scream!
I beg you,
Let me release
My anguish,
My rage,
My passion,
My being.

But you won't
Let Me.
So I remain
I keep everything
I hold back
But you won't
Like what
I will become....

Fall from the tree.
Some lay
Where they fell,
Some rolled
To the sea.

The sea
Takes them
To a different shore.
All stay,
Except one.
It floats away.

One nut
On the sea,
All alone,
To somewhere
To call home.

Kiss Me

Kiss me
Under stars
Polished by the
Velvet sky.
Raising me
Higher onto
My cloud nine
Where everything
Is soft and warm,
Scented with vanilla.
Leaving me drunk
On the fine wine
That is you.

Deep in the jungle,
The hunt.
Hunting down
Their prey of choice,
Green, leafy, hard.

Some working hard
Making it come
To them.
Some creating it.
And some stealing it
From others.

These hunters
Are ever evolving,
But their prey
Remains the same.
Hard, cold cash!

Cross town.
Into Manhattan.
Out of Manhattan.
On tracks
Under the city.

My drug of choice,
Taking me away,
Taking me underground
Where I belong,
Where I am at home.
Don't tell me
Your fears,
Nor your warnings.
This is my drug of choice.

Got to be everything,
Got to be perfect
In the eyes of perfection.
Got to be sane,
In the face of insanity.

Then what?
When I'm perfect
And sane
In my perfect,
Sane world.

What if I want
To revel in imperfection?
Everything of mine flawed,
A pearl smudged
With a drop of crude oil.

What if I lost sanity?
Hearing voices,
Seeing things
That are not there,
Just in my twisted mind.

Then what!?!
Then I'll be happy!

Then Forgotten

A din,
A constant din,
Rising and falling
With the breaths
Of it's creators.

Many voices going
At different speeds
Till they pause at one moment,
Like waiting for the answer
To a math problem.

Then forgotten.

urban cat

Urban cat,
Prowling the streets,
In the urban jungle.

I am here
Not there.
When I was there,
I wanted to be here,
But when I got here,
I wanted to be back there.

Before I thought
Here was better than there,
But I found that
Here was no better than there
Nor there better than here.

So here I am.

I Don't Know How

When you come,
I run away,
When you go
I run after you.

I want you
But I evade you.
I want to experience you,
But I don't know how.

I don't know how...
How to attract you,
How to accept you,
How to keep you.

I don't know how!

Dressed in
My gown,
I sit among
My peers who are
Dressed like myself.

They call my name,
I rise
And walk
To the front
Of the hall.

I am given
A sheet of paper,
With nothing on it.
Bulbs flash around me.

I take
Said sheet
To my seat
Where I watch
The end of the rite.

I walk out,
Being hugged by
My family.
Another graduation,
Another end,
Another beginning.

Hold Myself Tight

Rain tortures
The city,
But I don't notice.

I'm wrapped
In a blanket
Holding myself.

I feel you,
Your presence,
Warm and safe.

I smell you,
Your scent
Bringing me home.

A tear flows
Down my cheek,
One of many.

You are gone,
Always six feet
Away from me.

Never to come back,
But I feel you,
I smell you,
I hold myself tight.
