Stay Together For

Poem By Isaak DeMaio

It's hard to wake up, when this is all you feel,
the curtains have pulled shut, I feel unreal.
This house creeks, the door slams shut,
your exit echoes, an excruciating cut.
Please take me home, I've ran out of things to say,
this poem uncolored, your vision black and gray.
Enjoy this time, i'll leave you alone,
you'll give it all away, sticks and stones.
It was all mine, but you left me on my own,
Twenty years lost, will you remember what was honed?
'I see them everyday, we get along so why can't they?
If this is what he wants, and it's what she wants, then why is there so much pain? '
My anger ran you away, we went our separate ways,
we'll never fix our problems,  embrace this pain everyday.
Enjoy this time, i'll leave you alone,
you'll give it all away, sticks and stones.
When I'm dead and gone, will you remember those nights,
the nights we loved each other, not the useless fights.
My confusion and frustration, our friendship to rewrite,
none of this was deserved, in the end, what I said wasn't right.

'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

Just How Much You Hurt Me

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.

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.
