Our demons leave us with anchors tied around our necks
Sew our lips with fishing hooks so we’d cry in silence
In the deepest pit of the ocean where there is only darkness

To look in the mirror and smile?
Is too much to ask…
For I would peel my skin and yet I would still see the sinister inc imprinted in my roots


To Love Without Being a Burden?

To be a burden on one’s heart is a frightening thought
A smothering lover, or a slaughtering cancer
Which one am I to you? Or am I both?
Should I tie my heart and slice my tongue?
Would it make it easier for you not to run?
Yet at times I untie this pounding heart
And stitch back this screeching tongue
For the purpose of knowing what it takes for you to admit
I am a burden…



The Unfortunate Winter

“Smile” they said, so eagerly and oblivious of the reason for the sullen face
But as my muscles attempt to contract, my eyes will not follow the lie
Time runs and hopes are lost as I wait for the highs
I’m mistaken for the valley of the devil welcomes me with grace

It’s ironic how my steps always lead me to the cold winter
I applaud this heart for it fought the terror that came with the season
But as I clutch to it with both hands It wasn’t enough to keep it warm
And so the lights dimmed and loneliness found its way within

I was a fool for I had been stabbed and shot, all for my ignorant companions
The icy wind roars for I waited for them to save me as I bled
Crystals formed in my heart for whom are dear to me have fled
Now I walk with a lost mind and a frozen heart both victims of my own actions


Conflicts Of The Soul

The pure hearted I was told I am
But look closely and you’ll see a scam

There is a white chalk line in my mind
Like the oceans that have’nt intertwined

Can a soul be split in two?
Or is it all me all along

The trail of steps I left, some were bright and some were dead
Can an angel have ripped wings and a red halo above their head?

I was created to love not to hurt
To clean their hearts from the dirt

But all I do is tame my ghoul and take the blame
It wasn’t me, or maybe it was. It’s all the same

Can a soul be split in two?
Or is it all me all along

Is it all me all along?


I am Not My Skeletons

If I unfolded the dusty box
Will my face have a darker shade?
If I admitted for the sins committed
Can you still smile when you call my name?
I have changed, I have changed
I’ll beg and plead just look at me the same


Hollow Lies


Photo taken by ©2015-2017 JeisonRodriguez

Ropes made of vows were torn
New untold stories were born
Water full of filth were hard to swallow
Thorny road weren’t meant to follow
Shots of honesty were given
I am clean don’t throw me in prison
Vile whispers are roaming the kingdom
The Knights held the red flag with wisdom
A deceiving victim grips the knife of vengeance
A vision of the past shoved aside with no resemblance
The vessels don’t grieve for their ghosts
Took their pride and lies and sailed with their boats


The Consequences of Love

I waved to my fears a goodbye as I entered the sailing boat
Never thought it would sink and the water would dance in my throat


Unforgettable Lessons

Sorrow the hungry beast
Roars and seeks to feast
My weary flesh reeks of fear
Demons that yell and cheer
A rusty leg that’s been swallowed
An escape I attempt but it followed
As it chewed on my brittle bones
It dismissed all my loud groans
It left once it was stuffed and pleased
Kept me alive but shredded and diseased
Thus I lay petrified along my torn pieces
In my mind I carve the lessons sorrow teaches


The Cordial

Give and give was my joyful action

The generous cordial is my caption

No selfishness or narcissism in reaction

A lending hand is what I presented

Greed took over and more you demanded

Slowly my offer was damned to be useless

There I laid in the ground hopeless

While on top of me you stood ruthless


Lost In The Woods

I followed your trail that led to the woods
To your heart, I feared winter would reach
Our eyes locked through the distance
Snowflakes continued to fall from the sky
I raised my voice and spoke words of love
A wicked smile crept up before you ran
Hollow trees I ran passed to get to you
I fell to my knees as the cold lingered into my bones
Realization slapped my ignorant mind
Through loving you I lost my way in these woods

Feathers to Ash

In your hands I placed a feather
Delicate and strong all together
A brittle object that can shatter
Reveled a match with a slight of laughter
Burned it to ash never will it see an after
Just another burn in this chapter
