Within the heart of darkness.Tear tracks carve delicate patterns
Into to hollows' of my cheeks
Your beautiful face forever etched
Into the gallery of my memories
Choked cries mingle in the air
Twirling like a broken symphony
My eyes filled with fresh sorrow shine
Like the moon on a clear winter's eve
Sobs wrack my body uncontrollably
Moving it in a jerky puppet's dance
My hands desperately rake at the ground
Tearing at the Earth to try to bring you back
My heart splinters into a thousand tiny pieces
An exquisite jigsaw only you can complete
The fibres of my very being unknit
And unravel into a tangled web of colour and anguish
My soul yearns and searches for you:
A homing pigeon in the raging, rolling storms of my emotions
I lay on the floor defeated and wounded
A broken soldier bereft of a cause to fight for
Yet, in that night of madness and insanity
In which my world was turned on its head,
And my light and life had nestled so close
Then was snatched so cruelly away
The sun rose and brought with it new hope.
For you hold its precious key.Our eyes meet across the room
And in that single moment I know
My heart will be forever prisoner
You will never let me go
Your gaze is like Medusa's:
Can turn mere mortal to stone
Except I have come here willingly
The full dangers I had known
Your eyes are like fire
Burning chestnut in the gloom
Scorching straight into my withered soul
My hope and spirit anew
Your smile is dazzling
Bright like exploding stars
It blinds me with its light and truth
Reaching deeply from afar
Your body is that of Adonis
Carved by angels hands
Yet wrought from stone it's full of life
A perfectly made man
Your voice is soft like velvet
Gentle, calm and smooth
Your words said with a graceful ease
And carefully thought through
Your personality, it seems,
Was built to gel with mine
We compliment like yin and yang -
Our true selves bare to shine
We share so many interests,
Yet are lives are so apart
But wherever you may go in life
You will never truly depart
Although you keep me prisoner
With all the things you
The night I let love growAs the dawn broke
I took your hand in mine
It was a tentative gesture
Of our romance, a sure sign
Hazel eyes met brown
Cutting through the inky night
I saw your smile break across your face
And heard my own contented sigh
We gazed up at the stars that eve
As they sparkled in the sky
I curled my body close to yours
And watched the world go by
You snaked an arm around my waist
Claiming me as yours
You made me feel safe and loved
Protected and secure
Our heartbeats synced perfectly
Equally as fast
With foundations as strong as ours
This love was made to last
Neither of us slept that night
As we lay in a lovers embrace
I wanted to remember every detail
Every angle of his face
We talked little then
Silence was our voice
We both fell in love that night
Though neither through choice
The early morning sunbeams
Crept through the window, pale and pretty
The time to rise had come too soon
I could remain there for eternity
Eventually he had to go
Back to where he should've been
He crept away so si
I long to be freedYou absence was so sudden
So brutal, so cold
I hungered for your attentions
But then I was told
You were using me to get to her
Such a cowardly thing to do
And now my heart is ruined
I cannot start anew
Your selfish lust was all consuming
Powered by desire
You led me on for all that time
I never thought of you a liar
Those innocent eyes were simply a mask
Smothering the greedy plans
That adorable boyish smile
Cover for a self-centred man
Now I struggle to face you again
But it was you that did the deed
I have to stop myself from loving you
From your grasp I long to be freed.
What might've beenI caught a glimpse of her today
She was smiling, joking around
The joy in her eyes bright for all to see
The love broadcast from deep within
She appeared to have no worries
Not a single care in the world
There were no creases in her brow
Nor doubt in her eyes
She moved with an air of gracefulness
Chin held high in subtle defiance
Her strides were long and purposeful
Her gaze a fiery sweep of intelligence
I watched her from a distance
Studying her with interest
Where had I seen her before?
She seemed so familiar to me
That's when she turned her head
And her eyes locked onto mine
In an instant I remembered
Just where we'd met before
It seemed so long ago
That I was acquainted with this woman
So much has happened since then
Things I can't forget
And so the answer leaks back to me
As if it were fighting through a haze
A spark of recognition flares in her eyes.
When I look at her, I see who I was
I don't see the scarred wrists
The shoulders bent from an invisible burden
The hurt be
Every time i look to you.Every time I look to you
You're charming yet another
But every time I glance once more
My heart quietly flutters
Your smile it melts
My hardest resolve
And my foolish hopes
Soften the harshest of blows
Your eyes draw me in
An inescapable pool of light
I'm too weak to move on
Ill put up no fight
I remember how it felt,
To be safe in your arms
I crave it once more
To be shielded from harm
That time was so perfect
How did it go so wrong?
We could've been so good together
And our romance was young
Then you went away
Acted like nothing had happened
We all knew it did
But the memory's been flattened
I didn't see you for weeks
But when I saw you again
It was like you didn't know me
As if I was to blame
It's clear you've moved on
And I just can't let go
How did I come so close
Just to hear 'no'?
I talked to your friends
They told me your thoughts
You liked my body, they said
But my personality fell short
Really I shouldn't stand for it
I thought I knew better
To let a guy treat me like this
Forever and a dayForever I shall love you
you have no need to ask.
Forever you shall feel my love
I will make you grasp.
I´ll prove to you there´s no better one,
no better one so true
cos everything that I will do,
I´ll do it just for you.
so please don´t start to doubt me,
never want to hear you say,
"How long will you still love me?"
Forever my love...
Forever and a day.

I'd LoveI’d love to love you if you let me
I’d quickly fall apart for you
I would take all that you found heavy
And bear your burden through and through
I’d love to thaw you out in winter
And see you smiling every day
Though you might act cold and bitter
I’d see the warmth you hide away
I’d love to lie with you through sunrise
I’d watch the colours change with you
I’d love to love you for my whole life
If you could only love me too
December LoversDancing within the December light
lovers kiss under the cold rain
cast in the haze of synthetic glow
desperate on a lonely night.
Strangers in the shadows pass from sight,
mislaid tokens of distilled pain
where oil slicks and memories flow,
embrace to escape dreamless blight.
Bodies grasping a moment's delight
only a touch to keep us sane,
breath on the air is all that will show,
unknown faces appear ghost white.
In darkness lovers always burn bright,
untold regrets wash down the drain
a secret language in fallen snow
neglected hearts touched by frostbite.
Bring Me BackFor you
the moon will sing
and wake my heart
led through dreams by the melody
from the darkness I emerge to find you
revived by your own warmth
again I live
JadeCadé a pedra preciosa jade?
Mil Baús abri sem nenhuma sorte
Que lealdade à sua raridade!
Você é como sakura no norte
Encontrei a jade em terra ferida
Afundando nesta areia maldita
Eu tentei salva-la de tal angústia
Mas fui afogado pela maldita
Lépida ela ficou com o meu
Sofrimento, sou sofredor sofrido
Condenado pelo amor proibido
Não mereço este bom amor seu?
Ganância afasta-me desta paixão?
Achei minha paz nesta escuridão
SaltI want the easy love, head over heels.
Shred your bills and head to a white sand shore.
Eat fleshy foods, leave peach pits and orange peels.
Caressing by candlelight needs nothing more.
Live in a sheet of, encased in, good sweat.
Make love wrapped in a down feather cocoon.
Sleep after a chilly sea swim, still wet.
Sun pulls you from bed, talk late with the moon.
Let’s smash all our clocks, burn little black books.
Spend till we cannot afford to get home.
Catch ourselves dinner on hand-crafted hooks,
clean dishes with sand, wash up with sea foam.
I’ll take the hard love, we have candles here.
I’m in paradise, so long as you’re near.
The KeyIf you don't love me, too...
I don't know what I'll do.
I hope your heart understands,
That my heart's in your hands...
To do with as you will...
And bestow life or kill.
Whatever is your whim,
Be it bright or grim...
I've given you the key,
To unlock all of me.

Falling in LoveCan pages and pieces of paper contain
That sweetest of feelings; do I write in vain?
The ink I have spilled, the words I have spelt
Do not hold that sentiment of which I have felt.
I send out my heart, gone a-roving to fetch
A trace of that feeling, unlikely to catch
And hold on for long to that vaguest of hope
Impossible to tether with chains or a rope.
A ship without anchor tossed on by the sea
Carries that feeling away from me;
A butterfly net with a gaping breach
By which the moth flutters away from my reach.
Far off it flies, but it will come again-
Return it will, though you never know when-
In a warm summer breeze, when the spring flowers grow,
With the bright falling leaves, with the white drifting snow.
Is this a glimpse of a heaven above
Sent down on the breeze on the wings of a dove?
Is this fragile fancy what I'm fondest of?
Is this the feeling of falling in love?
You stole my fragile heart.We'd hit it off just great, I thought
You played the perfect part
Ensnared all my waking hours
And stole my fragile heart
You tricked me into trusting you
And blindly I believed
All the lies that you had fed to me
I was thoroughly deceived
You hurt me well and truly
With not a thought but to yourself
Our love, if you can call it that
Was a betrayal in itself
The minute I outlived my use
You left me standing there
No goodbye, nor apology
Just a vast pit of despair
You went straight back into her arms
As if nothing had happened
It was just a bit of fun to you
The reason your soul is blackened
It has taken time, but once again
My heart's begun to heal
The hole is slowly filling in
And the cracks started to seal
But then I saw you walk right by
A simple twist of fate
Where once your eyes were bright with life
They were now filled with hate
I don't know what she did to you
But I can guess that you're to blame
You brought this all upon your self
You have been played at your own game

Poetic PsychosisIn thirty seconds, the next shell would fall. Every night was the same, but every night Lorenzo experienced it as if it were the first time. His throat felt swollen; breathing was hard. He glanced around at the others; young men like him who had been shipped out in the name of honour and freedom. There was no honour in this, no freedom. Only death behind your eyelids, and a fear so gutting, that it carved out your innards and left you a hollow husk. Lorenzo tried to breathe, tried to assure himself that he was still whole, still made of flesh. They had lied when they told him he was ready.
Matteo ran towards him, arms out, rifle swinging uselessly at his side. He shouted for him to run, but Lorenzo remained motionless, unable to move as his friend’s warning was lost in the constant blare of gunfire. None of them were ready.
“The cycle is repeating. It is not safe.” The voice was soft and weak, yet it carried over the gunfire and battle cries without impediment.
