Wild thing, come to me

I have the urge to run away 
From dusk to dawn 
Can you hear what I'm saying
Do you know where the wilds things go?
Give me your love 
I want your life 
While I cling to your lies 
My body aches 
Can you hear what I'm saying 
Dusk to dawn head to toe
My heart sinks 
But here I go 

Bruises, blood, spit, laughter 
Crying, gun shots 
Laughter, tears of gold 
A thousand lies 
A beautiful disguise 

Can you hear what I'm saying 
I asked you not to go 
And yet, here I go 
Do you know where the wild things go 
Give me your love 
I want your life 
While you cling to my lies 
Body aches 
I don't even know what I'm saying
But I really wanna fall 
In love 
With you 
Where all of the wild things are

When seeing more reveals even less

You're bitter 
Words don't mask the sweat 
I see you bask my words 
But you try to hide instead 
Of going with the flow 
Like the kind of life you say you know 
You say you're free 
But I've learned to overcome 
Any thing that's been done to me 
I know you taste my love 
It's dripping from your lips 
I'm impulsive and you know my lies
I know the taste of regret 
It kisses me goodnight
you're too much in control 
Of me 
And I of you 
You know the taste of regret
Because we're too delicious 
To forget

The days were unexpected
some catastrophic
others less dramatic
yet, all substantial
and in the process
it was always a continuation
of powerful, disorderly emotion
it was always in the borderlines
of love and
passion and
obsessional seduction
and nothing short of
and when the sun
kissed the world
we kissed each other

You slept with skeletons 
and I still wake up with dismissive attention 
You beg for forgiveness 
but you're being forgotten 
you were too intoxicated to see 
anything other than
those desolated days you lived in
time can only tell 
but you're still dragging me into a fog 
you left me in hollywood
yearning and writing on empty walls
i'm wasting my mind 
because you decided on the one you left behind
your mind was confined 
and I still have that sick twisted smile
due to the anticipation of your yearning
I thought i’d be here for the rest of my life
but I’m gone so here’s your kiss goodbye.

Venomous silk

Shattered faith
On broken wine glasses
Emotions revealed in black and white
Starting fights
To keep the numbing out
Listening to the white noise
From frequencies of heart beats
It's the sweaty palms
That make it hard to hold on
With eyes burning like fire
Tears neglected
To remind the soul of the journey
That's to come
of what's left to fight
And that's not to leave
An erratic route of
A bestowal of uncanny blessings
Sent from an angel
Who's fallen
Once or twice
And has obtained such venomous lips
Yet, determined and capable
in delivering such a silky kiss.

Confessions on eggshells

I wanted to be with you 
Until I really saw you,
that is, until I let you in.
And then, I realized 
I didn't want to be your dream girl,
The one walking on eggshells 
within the yolk of all that I am, 
all that I was, and will be 
trying to be careful not to wake you
from the state of reality that you reside in.
I'm far too wild for that.
My favorite form of reality is love,
the altered state of it
and you, fire,
me, water, 
We start a chain reaction 
with our thoughts 
and it's never a good one;
because you say talk is cheap 
but you fail to enunciate.

El nino

I remember that night 
The night it decided to rain 
A thunderstorm you could say 
We stood there in our own little paradox 
An ice chest full of warmth 
We latched on to each others ugliness 
Because it was a friendly reminder 
That even the ugly can love and be loved 
Be so desperately desired 
And able to desire so desperately 
We needed to hear the answers
Our questions revealed to us 
And now 
The rain has stopped 
California in a drought 
We're somewhere in between 
Love and abuse 
A silver lining of what was 
And what twill be 
A melting pot of the past, the new and the used 
They're tempting us to join their teams 
The gray and the happy 
I watch the work of my words define me 
The words that fight till the end 
And you, babe, my perfect punching bag 
I've got one hand on your heart 
And my wine all over the floor 
You asked me to turn up the volume
to keep the white noise out
I told you that it was 
"The silence of the vinyl that touches the soul"
I wish I didn't have to 
But I told you so
And if I'm not already gone 
Ive got one foot out of the door 
it wasn't me 
it never was 
it was you
