You Are Beautiful

  
Hush little one, don’t you cry
Forever is so far away
Don’t worry about it coming
Tomorrow is a new day

Afraid to leave the room that holds the secrets of my heart
Afraid I stay inside, when the world turns about
Spinning on its axis, rotating with a life force flow
These words wish to be heard through screens aglow
When darkness comes with a sound of silence
Where echoes are snuffed by its deathly radiance

At night, the dark, shines bright
A twilight zone, the door fades away, to light
A calling of my name, to music played
Drawing me to rise, floating into the outside
Struck by the sun it burns my alabaster skin
As it warms, it coats a body frail and thin

Sounds appear, filling my ear
Never before heard, a world as dear
Smiles exist, from faces looking up
Cheerful on the day, I stopped giving up
Venture on exploring
What once, was ignoring

Words appear, from my mouth
They travel from north to south
From eyes, a dark chocolate brown
To the soles of, Chuck Taylor All Stars
You Are Beautiful, was all I said
A roar, vibrated in my head

You Are Beautiful, I said again
And again, it came out plain
once more, You, Are, Beautiful
In a way, that is most unusual
Eyes reflecting back, they stare
Into the eyes of the same, from a mirrors glare

The Moment of Clarity

  
The first hurts like hell, striking bolts of lightning
Drugs kicking in, it didn’t mask the pain shooting
As it scorched through the arm burning
It consumed, this fools yearning

The second, like the first, made me yell
I thought of the time I fell
Laying on the ground, waiting for the bell
To end the hurt that makes my head swell

The third, went in without a twitch
Joining the other two like a hitch
Blood now flowing warm and rich
But it still hurts like a bitch

The fourth one hit bone
It made a sound, it made me moan
A pause to feel the scrapping tone
It put me deep into the zone

The fifth pierced true
Guiding blood to drip through
A vision appeared in my head with a view
Of the sadness that has kept me blue

The sixth pushed in, followed by number seven
Breathing heavy, keeping long slow breaths even
Continued on with, 8, 9, 10 and eleven
On and on the need of accession

Twelve and thirteen was easy
The moment of clarity hits…doing this is fucking crazy!
A rush that propels my senses greedy
Like a whore continuously taking it sleazy

The fourteenth nail, the final one
Saved for the base of the thumb
Droopy eyes staring down dumb
Dreams in a sleep, now come undone
