torn up letters

i'm ripped apart.
put back together.
but we'll mend this heart.
thread through this weather.

There is that lingering presence,
one that you despise so much
it hurts, because the quintessence
of what you can clutch
and what you can only fathom
is a single thought, a shadow,
a little spark of your phantasm
that in this lonely night will glow.

There is that lingering presence,

one that you despise so much

it hurts, because the quintessence

of what you can clutch

and what you can only fathom

is a single thought, a shadow,

a little spark of your phantasm

that in this lonely night will glow.

I’m done painting the photographs,
writing the lyrics to songs 
we will never together sing.
You’re done tearing up the letters,
so lost, so crazy, so mad, so sorry
for the things we’ve said and done.
Where am I now, I can’t find your smile but
turn around, for your smile is overdue,
bid farewell before my smile goes too.
I’m done scratching the walls and counting
the days that I’ve been locked in, relentlessly
still, this wretched door won’t open for me.
Place the barrel through my mouth, 
put a bullet in my brain
where it’s supposed to be.
Pour me a glass of wine, light me a cigar,
and remind me why we are alone
dining with iron and steel.
Remind me again why my eyes won’t open
when I spin the cylinder and pray
the loaded chamber re-latches itself on. 
Remind me again that life is meaningless,
that you and I deserve a little better,
and I will remind you to pull the trigger.

Your song is on the radio,
and the memorized lyrics play in your head
with every beat, every note
and every instrument, familiar to you
like it were part of your body,
part of your soul.
It’s beautiful, isn’t it?
The melodious tone that sings
you through the day (night)
while you dance (all alone) in your room
to every beat, every note,
every day (every night)
like it were your last.

I’ll forget you in days, in the minutes
that count the remaining year down
to seconds, and the screams shall then engulf
the night sky like you used to fill my mind.
I wish this portrait will crumble bit by bit,
into pieces that will never be recognized,
while the picture it inherits so blindly
finally fade, fade, fade.
Turn (green) will I at the sight of palms
in palms, trash I will claim him to be
for you do not know love, and yet
I do not know (you), I do not know
any more the Sunday afternoons
that I spent loving you
more than I (he) ever could.
So pour me one last glass of wine,
before your warmth departs,
or perhaps
your warmth has already left me forever.

Now you wonder why he does it,
how he does it, why he doesn’t stop
even when the lights are dropped,
because he loves it so much
he can’t stop so he continues
to do what he does,
and while he does it
he burns the little photographs on his desk
piece by piece, till the flames engulf entirely
his rigid emotionless soul,
a sober body, a drunk mind,
and he lights another for the next photograph.

Now you wonder why he does it,

how he does it, why he doesn’t stop

even when the lights are dropped,

because he loves it so much

he can’t stop so he continues

to do what he does,

and while he does it

he burns the little photographs on his desk

piece by piece, till the flames engulf entirely

his rigid emotionless soul,

a sober body, a drunk mind,

and he lights another for the next photograph.

If the planets will drift
towards each other, they will swim
so fast the stars stop shining in shock,
and the moons that revolve around them
gradually collide onto a course that takes
the populations that will eventually reside
in them by the eyes, and their thoughts
will turn the stars from where they stand,
millions of light-years away,
till people, things rather, collide, and collide,
and collide again, again, again,
collide, and we now are in another world,
another world? The other world?
Which other world?
What of our world?
What is our world?
This world does not exist.
Ce monde n’existe pas.

I don’t remember you,
for that’s what you always do,
you place men in the back of minds
and women through the end of time.
You don’t remember me,
but I’m willing to let things be,
for the world does not revolve around
the countless footsteps that you sound.
What of the countless nights at play?
What of the nights that shun the day?
What then will you recall of us?
What then to do, but turn to dust?
I’ll let the world boil underneath,
till then, maybe, you’ll beg in grief.

I hope you’re happy,
because the moments that you share
with him are far more precious
than those you shared with me, and the time
you have with him will far atone for
that you had with me.
Or did that even exist?
Because I cannot exactly recall how
the summer’s day was spent, or the winter
that marked the “so cold and alone” in life
did not seem to so sparingly forgive us
in the midst of the craze that we once had.
It’s called craziness, is it?
The feeling you get when you don’t know
what time of the night it is you’re still awake
thinking about how the morning will pass
without you knowing because you’ll be up
only when the sun begins to set
and the night begins again?
But perhaps then craziness cannot exist
when you are missing someone
that does not exist
in your life
any more?
Can you smile to the one whom you’ve spoken
to each night you’re half asleep,
and yet rid yourself of that aching
inside you, burning you till your screams
echo and ring in the ears of all who pass by
in bittersweet silence?
Can you remember if you are truly happy?

Won’t you write with me?
For you die with poetry,
you live your life in prose,
you steal the lines off the stage
of Aristotle’s very own theatre,
you dive under the pages of an unread book,
and play the part of a silent diner
in an empty restaurant, where all the flavour
left on the table was never served
but only taken
by lips that ironically never part in rhyme.
You’ll paint the ground in blue,
stain the skies in pink,
you’ll leave rivers in a tint of yellow
but you won’t rid the black
at the back of your intricately entangled mind.
So won’t you write with me?
Won’t you write the colours off your heart,
write the literature in pale ink,
write art into words you appreciate,
write in an existence I may comprehend,
write with me?

Won’t you write with me?

Your heart is racing,
the sun sets and you rest your hand in his,
your body’s shaking,
the horizon goes, but you can’t rest in peace.
It’s taking over you,
such electric vibes running in your veins,
it’s taking none of you
through the space and time that pains.
I won’t find it
anywhere, above Hell or beneath Heaven,
I wont mind it,
for the skies won’t breakeven.
Everywhere you go, my heart can’t follow.
Everywhere you go, I can’t be your shadow.
