When beauty becomes weak
only light could rule us
for darkness is merely nothing
nothing but streaks of forgiveness
that no one seeks
and God
you are someone that never forgets
someone who gives without regrets
but the love that you equally share
with us all
more concrete then any given wall
I prey that you show us
the light
so that beauty could rule us
so we are no longer weak
and forgiveness is yet again
what we seek

The death of me

My heart
is far away
that is how much
I love her
she sings a sweet chorus
of devotion
a number 9 potion
that nstantly kills
in this quiet desperation
is a part of me
that dies with her
tragedy ends
with beautiful kisses
and kisses end
with tragedy
verses of premelodic
like how my suicide
would be
and with this note
that I leave
are the words
"let your love be
the death of me"

What love is

Let's conversate
in the language of love
subtract the time
to elaborate
add hours
to appreciate
divide equal parts
of trust
times how long it takes
equals beauty
if beauty equals to infinite
then the speed drift
of it all
was miscalculated
as zero to one
the ratio
to somewhat how
we see others as attractive
as we think
but then again
love like I said
doesn't take years
to figure out
love as we think
is as confusing
as the formula given above

Vocational haze

I feel my limbs
pulling me
telling me it's on
has got me addicted
to casablancas
and the usual type
of paper roles
not to mention
all the food
that went to waste
it was time
lights out
black ot
eccentric souls collide
but we were
the only three
left by the side
in a hidden place
vocational haze
