Just How Much You Hurt Me

Poem By Isaak DeMaio

I cannot leave here, I cannot stay
Trapped in my mind, doubt begins to prey.
I cannot wait here, I'm wasting away,
dreaming so vividly, the first day of May.
Let me be, I don't want to hear,
sudden movements, you disappear.
Knock on the door, refuse to open my ears,
Are you listening? You're not coming in clear.
I'd show a smile, but it'd be fake,
If I were to speak, I'd make a mistake.
Falling asleep, I may not awake,
vehicle speeding, too late to brake.
Lifeless on the ground, look up to the skies,
hole in my heart, shot down by lies.
Terrified by information, my insides begin to die,
Viscous raptures, defeated by your surmise.
I cannot elude, too many chances you blew,
name of honesty,  every truth you skew.
Life lived once, there is no undo,
See how much? Just how much you...
... hurt me.
Just how much you hurt me.

'Your Thoughts Here...'

This plain white canvas,
has a story to leave,
letters uniformly formed,
read these words that the pen bleeds.

'92 Lincoln

Open the door
Into a world of opportunity
Jump into the back
Notice what you'll see.


It lives in the dark
Moist part of your brain
A journey that it embarks
Such a life that is arcane

Deceiving Reflections

A purple shaded sky sleeps silently
above timid young restless souls,
observing a glossy full moon rise
from out under the glistening ocean.

Breaking These Addictions

The sign reads 'exit, '
she never intended him to leave,
trust walked out the door,
he's not that easy to believe.
