2017.06.19 Tell Her
If you see my baby tonight
if you see the star in my sky
if you see why i couldnt love you
tell her its true, oh please please
tell her its true.
tell her i tried to forget her
tell her i know she said its through
tell her i know that  i had to let her
even though it ripped us in two
if you seeing her standing
looking up at the sky
tell her she doesnt have to wonder
tell her it was always true
tell her i couldnt forget her
tell her, i know im through
tell her i know what I have to do
ever since she ripped us in two
if you see my baby tonight
tell her to look up in the sky
tell her im waiting there
tell her its true oh please please
tell her its true

on the other side of the veil
not to be sad, we'll always be together
tell her thats always been true
oh please please tell her

2017.04.18 all those things
2017.04.18 all those things
I wrote thousands of words
so very much, I had to say
and with halting pen in hand
I never wrote all those things
I wanted to every day
We spoke hundreds of times
we talked about everything
and with all those words
I never said all those things
I thought to say
when our talking became difficult
when understanding crept away
I wondered time and again
if it was the all those things
I didn't say

2017.04.18 Razored Shadows
What sweetness did you whisper
What was it you said
voice so softly slipping
the words I needed to hear
deeper deeper into my brain
Slicing my soul
with razored shadows
deeper into my heart you wormed
you slipped your blades in 
and made me hollow
nothing can ever be the same
I look to Her, 
just one more 'Another'
I can't bring myself
to tell Her I love Her
From my hollowed heart
come your razored shadows
The sweetness I long to whisper
are the words you said
voice so softly slipping
the words I need Her to hear
deeper deeper inside my brain
I fear I'd Slice Her soul
with your razored shadows
deep in my heart are your worms
and I cannot slip your blades in Her
make Her hollow
nothing can ever be the same.
nothing can ever be the same.

2017.04.04 a hat
you tried us on
like a hat
to see if you liked
the cut of it
the dashing airs
the trim, sexy, look
just to see
if the we, ended up
somewhere, you
wanted to be
you wore us well
it suited you
blossoming in light
one day, you just
took off the hat

2017.01.25 walking at 334AM
im out walking, walking again
the streetlights
soft hazy dandelion shrouds
sucking away the darkness
from before my feet
milky way floods my mouth
while pink floyd taffy's my head
together again, and
we are out walking, walking again
i can smell your skin again
feel the brush of your hair again
your hand lays lightly on my arm
but oh! your laughter taffy's our heads
together again, and
its 334am and
im out walking, walking, again
dreaming im us again
longing for you
while out walking at 334am
again

2017.03.22 Enfolded
Ah! The very cells of my flesh
The fibers, fascia, gristle and sinew
Remembers being wrapped, enfolded,
nested in the warmth of loving you
being loved, by you.
We, all of me, from thoughts in my head
to the memory of toes curled
Remembers you.
Ah! The very essence of me
Call it what you will
Longs to be wrapped, enfolded,
Nested and warm just one more time
Before being without you.

2017.02.19 breathe you in
Breathe you in
breathe you out
holding you close
knowing the coming of the long night
We loved blazing new trails
wine and roses scattered behind
I saw the darkness ahead
a bittersweet knowing
I think it's strange
You couldn't see it
eyes clogged with wine and roses
now scattered behind
I still breathe you in
breathe you out
my mind holds you close
I'm a creature of the long night

2017.02.19 I'm never comin down
2017.02.19 I'm never comin down
After our love was over
I knew I'd never love another
it's just not gonna happen
We went so high together
I know
I'm never comin' down
We became something
bigger than we ever knew
it can't be like that forever
except in our heart and our soul
I know
I'm never comin' down
You tore us apart forever
You walked away from me
took something less for a moment
forgot it couldn't matter to 'we'
And yet, you know
I'm never comin down
never comin down
never comin down

2017.01.23 closing the loop
I seem to be well around the bend
rather more behind me, than, ahead
my eyes film over with tears, and
moving in the shadows,
is you on my bed.
and above beyond behind
I hear you singing to yourself
Gently, The Song of Becoming

choking down another cigarette
brain fires burning regret
how could I have been so blinded
by our Love
by our Eternity
that I missed our here and now?
come to me
across time, oh I know you will
come to me
youll come again you see
so many times across eternity
there is always ever only you and me
just not now....
Time for another cigarette
oh sweet sister, help me forget
the fucking betrayal of Promises rescinded
all that fucking pain
all that Eternity and we're
Nothing at all, to you, here and now
Come to me
across time, I know you will
come to me
youll come again you see
so many times across eternity
there is always ever only you and me
just not now....
just
not
Noooooooww (screams)
two in one in two in one in two in one in two in one in two in one in two in one in
Not now.

Literature
EUPHORIA
Waiting for your erogenous touch
Slip and soothe all over my flesh
As trust and desire intertwine together
Exhale a steamy hot heated breath...
Sweat ripples down like rain
Each droplet riddled with passion
One chance, release the built up frustration
And watch the cause dissolve...
Trace a circle on my chest
Where the pounding does persist
Take this current situation, hold it tight
And dig in with all your might...
Leave those bedside manners anywhere but here
You naughty boy, they're not needed or wanted
Rough careless messy mind blowing actions
will do all the talking tonight...
Remove what's underneath the armor
The trophy lovers keep confined
This heart, this body, broken & sewn
A bomb, set to explode in rhythm...

hope.
dickinson writes of hope
as a little thing with feathers
perched on the soul,
  but i've come to see
hope as a vine of thorns
 and flowers inside my ribcage.
it hurts when i breathe, and blooms
when i bleed.

Monster
Will you hold me one last time?
I feel myself slipping away.
Beaten and bruised by the world I love,
each and every day.
I'm grasping at the straws of my sanity.
While you all hide behind your vanity.
I need to know you'll still be there when I completely lose control.
To remind me of who I used to be when I was whole.
Don't
Let
 Me
  Break.
Don't
Let
 Me
 Snap.
Help me see past all the crap.
Where are you? You've left, haven't you?
After all the shit we've been through?
Was it all a lie? Were we ever even friends?
So stupid of me. I should've known it would end.
I feel violated and suffocated.
What? It's only just begun?
I've been isolated and dominated.
Now witness the monster I've become.

The Rescue
Darkness is an old friend
but we are no longer
on speaking terms
He left when you came along
Despair haunted me for years
Sucking from me
the light I so craved
In blindness I wandered
for years
I used to believe that love was a lie
A story I told myself
so I would keep walking
A mirage for the dying girl
When you are lost in the desert
any lie will do
Any sliver of hope
to keep you on your feet
But I look to mirages no more
since I was rescued from darkness,
despair, and deserts
He is an old friend, darkness
I know you are acquainted too
He held me so tightly I forgot
that the world is full of colour
and light, and love
But when I looked at you,
I swear the sun was born again in your eyes

Sunshine and Shadow
our bodies
and memories meet
in these
less obvious places
in a bite and breath
placed gently
to the hairline
behind your ear
in a pinch to the soft
of leftover clay,
stored just above
the base of your spine
in a grasp
at the resulting round
of a raised thigh, shifting
the thick of your hip outward
i live and die
in these
less obvious amassments
of sunshine and shadow
the integral minutes
of us remembering us
re-engaging
your weight against mine

frayed
it uncoils - sliding off my body
until i'm nothing
but a flickering light,
trembling,
always trembling.
sometimes lights go out without a sign,
no warning when the dark takes reign,
and no matter what, i can't decide
if knowing
makes it any less intense.
but i do know,
that chipped armor provides only fleeting shelter
and no rope
is strong enough to tie
the pieces back together
into any semblance of a future.
 
yet i try to gather it all up
so i can wind it around myself again,
despite the rope burns
on my arms,
despite the futility
of it all -
grasping,
always grasping.

Literature
Out of Sync
She sings: can't keep quiet,
yet in my discontent
I can make no sound,
can neither find the words
nor fathom the thoughts
to decipher the
disquiet lurking far,
far below.
Distant hints of memories
haunt my horizons,
whispering promise and
prophecy, inspiring
tales wherein hope and
history rhyme.
But my steps remain
yet out of sync with
the Sanctified Rhythms.
I cannot translate the
echoes resonating
softly but persistently
from deep within hidden
chambers: mysterious
enchantments interwoven
with melancholy.
An enigma I
cannot begin to
answer until I
embrace and grapple, breathe
and bleed, live and die
and resurrect with
this singular question.

Literature
Bring The Peace
Show me what I want to see, show me who I can be,
Push me until I grab the chains to set myself free,
Make me believe that there's no need to cry in the rain.
Who am I in this life, Who am I deep inside,
Please bring me straight to the end of this ride,
What is my fate should I just keep wondering why?
The flame I have will burn, until I die, my flame will live on,
It's a feeling that I yearn, I burn into the heat of the sun,
We all have so much to learn, together we stand as one,
Some day it will be my turn, just remember I loved you a ton.
Together we can sing, together love is the only thing we will bring,
We will sew the stitches of the earth and brighten our wings,
Together we were all the same from the beginning of birth, us and all living things.
If together we fight, no longer will we lose our sight,
Spreading love to those in need, to be brought back to the light,
But many are ruled by greed, grounded never able to take flight.

Metatetron's Profile Picture
Metatetron
john p reed
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
United States
(WILL GIVE OR TAKE CRITIQUE - PM ME WITH A LINK)
Current Residence: a single point of attention, wrapped in a meat sack
Favourite genre of music: ACID JAZZ, Progressive Rock, Trip-hop, EBM,
Personal Quote: Go back to sleep...
Interests
I am male, human.
The first, gives me claim to nothing special.
There is nothing gender specific about failing,
Despite what both genders would have you believe of the other...
Despite what a multitude of self-help and couples manuals tell you....

To fail, is human.
To forgive?
There is none, inside oneself.

But the gaps in my writing, is simply explained - I just didn't post what I wrote. Why, is as complex as the years between.

Perhaps it still, does not matter if I share my work, or not.

But, for the first time, in a long dark time, I don't know.

So I will bring them here.

Write well.

Metatetron
