The Pizza Incident

Poem By Joe Rivas

And now you sit there like a Bastion of grief
Covered with a look of indifference to hide your sorrow from me
But you wear it out unaware, just like this heart on my sleeve
If you could see into my soul you'd know how bad I hurt
If I could see into the future I'd never have done this to you
I can't stand to see you cry when I know they are my tears
Like the rings of a tree I can count the lines on your face
They tell me a story of sorrow, disappointment in me
I torture what is precious and have no idea why?
I am so confused so I act cold to you
I wish I could find a better word
Because sorry seems so flimsy
Like this Pizza that sits uneaten
We have both lost our appetite

I'D Like To Go Now

I’d like to go now
Because it’s been seven years I’ve been waiting
And it doesn’t seem like you are coming home
You have forgotten this old street

Not Forgotten

I thought about you again today
I just cant seem to put it away
The memories that I have of you
And all those things we used to do

Try It Again

Landslide buries
The weight is overwhelming
Breath comes short
I set up my walls

The Scary Night Sky

the great expanse
of the night sky
consuming darkness
pin holes of light

Big Shoes

I remeber how it was when you were still around
I had not a care or worry in the world
I could do anything that I wanted to
Becasue you always took care of me

I Captured A Butterfly In A Jar

I captured a butterfly in a jar
I danced around in the grass for hours
Chasing it down stumbling falling laughing
Making the chase the most rewarding
