Fatale

Fatale

“Marbled blue eyes and granite skin
turn inside out for me sweetheart
take in a breath, bite your lip
this life doesn’t do you justice
pushing you down like you’re warm clay
names get re-written too often
with foreign tongues while true love
gets nailed into the wall with
unbridled hands and salty touch that
makes you buzz like a wind up toy
which can’t stop repeating his name

end violated like a bike tire
I will go unfixed if it’s Monday”

Hold On I’m Coming Home
(day 16 PAD Challenge)

by Kelley Stephens

.
A single tear shattered
there is smoke in a graveyard once more
the next year vision
driving in a black German car
my head is salted and I am scared
I wont survive so preserve this moment
oh please don’t go
take the brilliant bits of your star
take winter, I can’t be in freezing temperatures
I will shatter; stand with my insides
gushing onto new soil
while life was intensely hazy, I never thought
things can become so clear
I held on tight and now all I do is cry
maybe I should have bent instead
no backseat, peddle to the floor
and you look so beautiful
laying in the glow of 51 billboard signs

Silence never broke and I shattered
the windshield gave up
let the best parts of me go
this time G-d had follow through
walked me across the hall in slices
watched all of the monitors in ICU
tangled in beautiful chords
prayed silently curled up beside you
who will protect me from monsters now

Darling, I wish you knew how much I love you
I’m telling you now with the slivers of my soul
shooting in the dark when there’s a hush
trying to get the rush of a wanted voice
until then, I’ll watch out; listen to your hold music-
echoes of never crying Sundays spent by your side-
will be what saves my soul-  without my dad
without you here, focus on the whole,
rely on the undefined I need you now
cause I shiver mornings I had a full life-
mercy closed it’s eyes, burden held me tight
sorry you couldn’t see me before this day
but I couldn’t go with you here so,
no more threat, tonight a promise
absolute commitment is all yours
I miss you
didn’t you know that
tell me it’s green and I can go now

He never drove drunk

do not tell her you love her if you are not ready for her to call you at 3 AM freaking out.
do not tell her you love her if you cannot handle her father or mother.
do not tell her you love her if you cannot love her at her worse.
do not tell her you love her if you only crave for her curves, not her mind.
do not tell her you love her if you cannot deal with her mood swings.
do not tell her you love her just to have sex.
do not tell her you love her. Krystal Gonzalez  (via memoriesrecollected)
