Just another guy walking down the path of least resistance while choking on the world. :)

Dear You,

How soft do the breaking bells drill their happy songs into my decaying mind? Or my mirror madness fade me into oblivion. What horrors creep on me like the thief in night? Am I my own enemy. As I crawl through the battlefield of my own desire and passion I looked up my friend. I saw a light on the hill. It was magnificent.

Love,

Joe

So terribly lonely
So terrible lonely
The itching you notice
The flies only the wall
So terribly lonely
The silence speaks
Magic is real
Oops
May of slipped there
But let me tell you
I’m so terribly lonely

Dear You,

From the moment
I ripped the pieces
Apart
And made them into
You
A monster
Damn
The world only has
A few
Lies
As the world
Creeps and crawls
Spins and decays
Remember
It was only
Lightning
And dead bodies
That made you.

Sincerely

Joe

Gasping for air
Gasping for air
Gasping for air
Withered and broken
And gasping for air
Eating and sleeping
And gasping for air
Dreaming and seething
And gasping for air
Bleeding and crawling
And gasping for air
I’m dying and trying
Just
Gasping for air

FOLLOW YOUR HEART

Dear you,

It’s nice to talk
When we do
It’s nice
It’s like
Spoon Feeding a Painting
Useless.

Yours Truly,

Real love

All day
All night
In my head
Feels right
Everyday
Fistfight
Everyday
Alright
But
Also in my head

Dear You,

I know you wanted so bad to see me
To hear me
To hug me
To talk about all those times we missed
But as I board the final plane
To who knows where
I realize
That I know you wanted so bad to see me
But you hurt me
Abused me
Broke me
Led me in
Made me feel alive again
Then left...
But I know how you wanted to see me.

Love,

Joe

It was nice to see you SC
I’ve dearly missed you
And how terribly fucked up
You are
Oh SC
All the pain
All the suffering
And my family...
Tell you what.
I’ll see you next year.

Yours Truly,
Joe

Dear Dad,

I know I don’t call much. Or when I do I don’t say much. Tell you the truth dad I just moved to CA, and ever since I’ve been in a huge...green....cloud.

Love,

Your son

What soft but yonder window
Breaks
She is the brick
Right through my bloody
Heart
My broken
Bloody
Half beating heart
She devoured it
Right in front of me
If not the horror of it
The pain that I felt
As it beat
Outside of my chest

Can you describe the pain?
Is it sharp
Dull
Constant
Does it come and go...
Listen doctor
I’d say it feels like torture
Like I’m trapped in my own
Body
Look throwing pills doesn’t work
Hoping that one sticks
So how do I feel?
Like a guinea pig.
Thank you world.
You’ve turned the mentally ill into lab rats

Dear me,

I haven’t written to you in so long, you know I’m no good with memories as time turns and flies away so does the image of what I had for breakfast or shaving oooh that’s a big one! But seriously get on that...you are looking like a caveman. Remember put your pants on one leg at a time and don’t forget the socks. Look at yourself in the mirror, although you can’t stand it. And stand tall, because you are. You are good. You are sweet. You are beautiful. So no matter what they say or especially how you feel about yourself remember that. Oh finally! Don’t forget to breathe.

Yours truly

Joseph

Dear you,
It has been quite a while. I’m married now, isn’t that crazy? I am fondly remembering our friendship lately and scrubbing out the messy bits. Good news, I’m learning to be happy again. It kind of messes up my writing style, but it’s nice. I moved to Connecticut. It’s truly cold and I’ve never seen this much snow.
But yeah, I’m glad you are well. Probably the last letter to you. I truly hope you have a fantastic life.

Sincerely,
Joe

As the clock strikes seven I feel the urge to dismantle my alarm clock. I walk to the shower and notice my body is entirely asleep. My love is kind and gentle as she patiently tries to wake the rest of me up and still to no avail, I am dreadfully asleep. A dormant and dreadfully dead body walking around amongst the regular, the working class. But as I sip my coffee. I see that life is coming back to me. I call it. Mornings.

Dear you,

It's been a while. The edges and seams of my very existence are in fact not effected by you anymore. Well digging deep I find you still gripping gently at my heart. But life goes on. And you're not around. And that's okay. I love you, I do but the silence you gave was accompanied with a shadow that still tears at me, claws and burns. When I think the light is coming the distant awareness I feel, the shadow. Light please take me or shadow kill me. Life is but a slow fade and darling you were a match.

Love,
Joe

Dear lovers,

Remember the first time
The first time you saw her/him
The first time you felt nauseous and overwhelmed
The first time you first held hands and it was almost awkward but so special
The first time you kissed and you never thought it'd happen.
The first fight
Tv show
Movie
Dinner
Restroom walk up
Everything
Everywhere
Anytime
Keep having firsts
They will never end

Love,

Joe

Dear You,

It's been a while
I'm still
Here...
I know I'm the worst
I know I'm cruel
But you were the engine
And I was your fuel
Like two of a kind
Ripped apart
Our sad sad story
Tore our hearts
But take my word for it
The pains always there
But take my word for it
We shouldn't care
So let's move on
Pack our bags and say our
Final goodbyes
I love you so much.

Love,
Joe

Dear Joann,

I've never really said your name on any platform of social media till now. But here goes. You killed me. For nine months you plunged a rotten dagger into my chest and once a day stuck it back in and spit on it. You placed barbed wire around my neck and tied it to your beautifully old Subaru that I despise. But most of all. You made me fall in love with your smile, your glance, our snuggles, and awkward turn of phrases. And for that. I love you. And unfortunately I always will. You are truly my best friend and thankfully not my soulmate. I found that this year. I even though it's almost impossible to be happy sometimes because of you I'm trying.
Sincerely
Joe

Dear universe,
So much darkness
So much toil
My brain is ready
My heart is heavy
Because
This is real
Enjoy the thrills
Because
Your life is lived once
Some things bad
And some not to great
But what I've learned of love is
That love trumps hate

Love,
Joe

Dear self,

I was reminded today that the hate of myself outweighs the love I have for others. My lack of love for others may give me a word or two to be shared or loved in media form but my outward expression should reflect my inward.

Ready to love myself.

Love,
Joe

Here I was
laying still
Fighting the feelings
Fighting what's
Real
Looked in the mirror
Didn't see anything
Blamed her and blamed her
Faceless infinity

Dear you,

There are Roots that bend
Roots that break
I'm a man
So couldn't scream
Rape
My vegetable body
And my vegetable mind
Couldn't say no enough
I even lost my rhyme
Thank you

Dear you,

Endless laughter
Beautiful truths
Almost as fake
As it was with you
You wrapped me gently
Gave me sanctuary
Drew me in
To a quiet insanity
