Raven By: Orchid

I saw a raven on my way to the marathon,

It fed on dead flesh and fresh blood,

I saw a raven on the way to a marathon.

Train Ride By: Orchid

And she sat there, 

Wheels turning,

In conclusion of her own life,

And her own misery. 

Realizing that happiness was a child's game,

Happiness was a fantasy, 

Fantasies are for stories.

Tears streamed and she couldn't stop them, 

flowing for days of endless pain, 

and yet the wheels keep turning.

Not Enough By: Orchid

Almost there

HA! I kid myself

Never going to be

Don’t try 

Efforts are wasted

Enough 

Lacking 

Soon enough 

No

Trying 

Can’t breath 

What is happiness 

Wasted on me

Love me

Why bother 

Be gone

And free 

A Future By: Orchid

In the darkness, I find you

I am not afraid

Hypnotizing brown

Lips embracing 


Horror, Fear, Pain, 

You don’t scare me

You have my soul in your eyes

I need your promise, forever 


Reading, writing,

Passionate love making 

Touch me with your fears

I am your advocate 


Cut me with your salivating blade, 

I ooze 

Fill me with your medicine


Sanity, Normalcy, Shame,

Not likely 

One bleeding heart, 

Four simple stitches of life


Holding together my decaying organs


No one is you

Where Have They Gone? By: Orchid

The flirty glances

Kisses of love

Longing 


Intimacy kidnapped 

No ransom in words 

Passion out of sight 


Why 

If not to gaze upon my blank nudity 

Blankly 


More tears shed 

No touch

Alone 

July4 By: Orchid

The moon over our sky, 

we share, 

but our love is 

beyond the infinite space!

Poetry by La Orquidia

August Fifth

I saw a beetle 

as big as a plum

green, like money

that pays for your happiness


Envy, sweet envy, BEETLE!

going septic

in your pink ice cream


My pink ice cream?

i chose vanilla! 


Hurry up and bleed

no

first, plead


Your guilt is undeniable 

hanging me with 

your wasted minutes 


My time is no longer

of value to anyone,

including myself


I whisper to him,

live another day,

so I may die later,


She can’t leave, 

or I will no longer 

exist in my brain


Sugary words of forever,

that I am prediabetic for 


The purple orchid 

that has bloomed the same 

bud, three times over ten 

and the fourth on the eighteenth? 


Squashed.

1993

afraid

aged at eight


trusted adult

perverted secret


no, not accepted 

locked in, cannot run


have to endure

bravery 


smell of sweat

taste of salt and insanity 


vile


three times the age 

a thousand times the disgust


over in minutes 

lingers forever

Emotionista

if I wrote you a letter, 

would you listen to the words


when does numb 

stop being so painful


why is everything 

so wrong 


hopes and dreams are for everyone 

but me


wanted: 

a forever commitment 


needed:

not a hard request


blood stained tears

blacked veins 


injected love 

infected life


fibrogren’s 

haunting past


cannot remember

Not Them

There are people here that want the world to burn

and I warm my hands by the fire


I don’t want to watch the world burn

I want it to bloom

be beautiful 

full of love


Those who allow themselves to burn in it

are responsible for their own actions


I just want to positively change one person’s day, everyday


That is a great day!! 

not them part ii

there are people here that want the world to burn


and I warm my hands by the fire


forever in the background 


burning spotlight 


judging unacceptable 


humble down, humble down, you stupid clown


read the fine print

i came with a warning label


you just won’t take the time to read it

at first

hesitation for his circumstances 


continue on


a caress, soft slow


down my spine


It's alright,

don't stop


gradually a kiss


electricity, 

buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


never end


take me 

i am now forever your's


longing complete


craving extinguished 


more,

forever more
