Oxygen ThiefBorrowing your breathTo exhale myself-A reaction to your lack of air.I'm an oxygen thief,Stealing the mistFrom cold lips on a winter's day,Reflecting the echo releasedBy a tired train,Puffing black smoke.I killed the doves you set free,Silenced the bells you let ring,Ripped up the letterYou let fly in the breeze.Yet I still don't callThis stealing a sin.And when you're all worn out,I'm the crook that reminds youOf when you could breathe...Then I killed you with carbon dioxide.
Giving UpDrops on the tips ofBranches that whip in the breezeSticking to the edge of my eyes.The sun is drying them,Reflecting the waterLike windows and watchesCasting shapes on the ceilingOr in someone's eyesTo burn of the blacknessHolding your tears in place-Marking your faceAs the one who gave up becauseYou've been strong for too long.
End of OctoberSilent screaming, Running, dripping, scratching Down my face Like a leaf, But much, much more painful.It's graceful floating: A dance with the wind Whose wistful touch Caresses the leaf's face And it falls...

Travel Tear ForgivenessComposure slipping away,Words melting from my eyes;The slow, constant drip of a wishKissing my face with an apology.It whispers, "Im sorry I let you down."Then it falls...Begging my neck to forgiveFor the last time.It travels to my chest, carvingCircles in a scar from the past.The burn of a tear, heavy on my heartAnd the unforgiving soul who letsMy sorrows swim deeper,Stirring up wings to tickle my insidesUntil my silent laughter is audible screaming.Then it grabs my legs, breaking,Holding me slave to a tear's dying wish.So I give in to the ache,With a cracked-hearted forgivenessBut wait for the wet betrayalTo forget and once again, run its couse.
