Poetry / Prose

I compose poetry and prose about the disappointments of life; dishonest people we come across; crushed hopes and expectations; the corruption that lies within everyone, but also lighter stuff.


Look

LookWe're a never-ending cycle,a clock that's turning back.Stand there on the edge of my soul,with my heart string round your neck.Trust me now, and close your eyes;let me burn your lonely flag.You search for daylight, and I'm on fire;my nights could...

Unseasonable

UnseasonableI really don’t know why I still try.The fate of a loser is simply to die.Glory to those who get used to all this.When I draw my last breath,there’s nothing I’ll miss.Lessons learned, but not in school.They couldn’t turn me into a tool.I c...

C. BongWhat a sad day.Yesterday, you were taken away.I know that there’s nothing I can do,but be grateful that there once was you.A little light on the darkest screen.Pure talent, nothing in between.You made me laugh at a timewhen I couldn’t care les...

Dust

DustThe endlessness of “love”. Hearts drawn in the sand at the beach.They will all be erased by the salty tears of the ocean, but earth remembers our fingerprints of dust; it will never betray or drown our past.Water resets the rusty canvas, and new...

Only You

Only YouI finally fell in love.I am like the brightest star.Above ego and dismay.Above any kind of war.My dreams begin to crystallize.Like a movie I can control.Every skin loses its scars,and the world accepts my soul.The eternity of love.A rainbow i...

Nothing

NothingI’m darkness.The other side of God.Where angels cannot see,and no help helps a lot.Drawn close to the edge of life’s master plan.Looking straight through the mirror,there’s no boy—surely no man.Between nostalgia and utopia.Both are forever gon...

Slump

SlumpA day is no longer a gift.A personality shift.Before the age of consent,everything came to an end.School became an instrument of torture,and friends became perfect strangers.Before the day showed the night its back,the plan was already in motion...

Black

BlackI’m living a strange life.She went into my heart.Never to find her way back.Unless she was dressed in black.And heaven was a step away.But she left me anyway.Let it die.Let it die.Let it die.To think how much I cared.She could be dead, diseased,...

Out Here

Out HereAll the humans standing in line outside.You know those people with a suit and tie.All waiting for some big reward.They’ll stay on hold till they grow old and die.Until they find out it was all a lie.Just never dream and fade away.Head for the...
