Words Float


your words float
like petrified clouds
hovering above me
out of reach
yet always there
for me to read
to remember
as i lie in bed
fighting back
threatening tears
that will come
as the lights go dim
and the night comes
as it always do

shush dear heart
silence your lips
your words flow
without any meaning

still your mouth
your darkness spills
with every breath
you slowly kill

hold your tongue
its sharpness wounds
no longer interested
in loving words

there is always silence
in between the smiles
that pass between us.
a silence that creeps
seeping into the corners
of the morning light,
like a shadow
waiting to rob the sun
of its wonderful warmth
and replace it with shards
of cold’s icy fingers
wrapped in our intimate space.
a silence that kills
the very thoughts we share,
chipping away at the bridge
we’ve built with infinite care.
the silence is loud and clear
breaking the words we’ve exchanged
erasing them one by one
until there is a widening space
a yawning chasm that feeds
on the very stillness of our mouths,
the lapse of words that connect us.
oh, how you kill…

Darkness Within


in between the words and worlds you build
i can see the darkness that lies within
lying in wait between the cracks and crevices
bleeding slowly into the dreams you’ve penned.

you try to hide what you fear the most
the darkness that consumed you long ago,
yet i can feel it nestled within the words you weave
they call to me, the blackest of your sins.

yet i feel no fear where darkness lies
as i trace them reverently with my fingertips
they’re but scars and hurts that can be healed
give me leave to bind them with kisses and silks.

Words Exhausted

from juneroca.com

words are all but exhausted
as they fall on deaf ears
carried away by the wind
and the fall of precious tears.

penned in the darkness
as the soul tries to commune
with the silence that seems to echo
into the emptiness within.

why would hope be present
when your absence is here?
spreading its coldness
where warmth used to live?

where did we go wrong,this story is half done,
we lost our rhythm, lost our stride,
the hand that weilds the pen no longer writes.
gone is the muse that lends her beauty,
all that’s left is an empty feeling.
tried to find the words to go along
this half finished story but they don’t come at all.
the pen remains still, no words to spill,
blank pages remain unblemished.
tried to find memories to fuel,
this writing hand that remains unmoving,
but all i found were broken pieces
of memories long forgotten.
where to find the spark to start the fire within,
to churn words to cover these empty pages?
when all that is left are faded images
of the things we used to love to get lost in?

So many lines remain unspoken,
can’t find the right words to say.
You’re always leaving me behind,
never thinking twice,
just letting your feet take you
away from me.

Where have all the words gone?
Trying to patch things up.
Just me and my mind tonight,
finding the words I know I’ve left buried
somewhere in the depths of this mind.

Just hear me out one last time,
and then you can go your way.
Leave me if you want to,
I won’t ask you to stay.
But won’t you wait for me
to untangle these unspoken words
I’ve yet to say?

I’ll never find another you,
even as the world keeps on turning.
There is no one else like you,
of that I am really sure.
You are the only one I know
who can find a smile inside of me.

And though I love you with all that I have,
there are still words that haven’t crossed my lips.
Because you never gave me any chance
to show you how I can love with all that I have.

Because you always keep yourself in the dark,
never letting my light shine through.
You thought it was better to leave me alone,
not knowing that your killing me inside.
How can these unspoken words
ever find their way to you?
When all I ever do is keep on chasing after you?

Won’t you stop and stay for the meantime?
Let me love you even just for a little while.
I’ll let loose these unspoken words
so they can flow and never stop.
Let them tell you how I see the world,
now that I’ve found what I was looking for.

It was always you who made my days better,
even when all I ever wanted was to drown
in my own dark despair.
The words have caught up with me now,
can’t hold back the tide.
I’ll love you forever more,
if only you’ll allow me to.

There won’t be any words left unspoken,
if you choose to stay by my side.
Just stay with me and never leave,
let’s not end it this way.
Let’s speak those words we’ve left unspoken,
and do away with the secrets, lies and silence.

Take back those words that you haunt my dreams
for they cripple me with distaste and displeasure
as nightmares come and creep
holding me down, holding me tight.
Such words that aim to hurt aren’t meant
to cross your lips,
such sweet lips that once settled on mine own.
Poisoned words that drip with every utterance
has consumed the very best in me,
as they send me reeling back with a frightened heart
beating like a drum that echoes inside my head
as your words vibrate and resonate with
the madness and darkness that you called love.
Even as I cover my ears I can still hear
those dangerous words you speak relentlessly
pursuing me in my dreams.
Words that were once coated with passion
no longer give me the warmth that I crave for.
All that is left is the cold winter’s chill,
like death’s kiss placed on pale cheeks.
Where is the fire that burned my senses
every time your lips part to tell me the words
I longed to hear?
Where is that spark that sends those shivers
down my spine?
Did you even feel them at all or was it all in my head?

Carving Lies

I will carve the lies your lips have uttered
on your pale skin for you to remember them by.
That all the words you’ve spun with those beguiling
have hurt me deep within this fragile flesh of mine.
But I will not be so cruel as to keep the pain to
I will teach you the burning sensation of shame and
I will show you how easily your words can cut to the
I will make you understand how lies can cause
someone to die from within.
And when all of these you’ve learned by heart,
I will let you go and live the scars you’ve left me with.

Repairing Thoughts


Repair these broken threads of thoughts
with words conjured from nowhere,
until we form a coherent story
that we can write on liquid paper.
To be carried out into the seas
along with all our hopes and dreams,
with candles floating in the wind
to guide us back to our beginnings,
when love was still strong in us,
unlike now when we are already drifting apart.
