~your Smile~

Poem By Eli J Tod

You smile and I
Lose all the things
I wanted to say to you
I think and then
I wonder again
What it is that I see in you

Nothing can break
My already broken heart
I feel for it
But then again
Lose it in the dark

The sun it brings
Another day
Another time for me to say
Everything to you

But you smile
And then it’s a knife
Across my throat
The words they spill
And tumble down
They disappear to smoke

When my words are gone
I’m all alone
Reaching for your hand
Now I know it will never come
So I teach myself to stand

I wait for the day
When you look at me
And hear all of the
Words I couldn’t say

The day will come
My eyes wont be attracted
To your smile
So I’m counting down
All the while distracted
By your smile

Is blind They say

From The Pen

The words i want
to flow from my pen
will bring me here
and back again


layer after layer
falls away to the fire
leaving behind
raw, unchanneled

Whats Spinning In My Head..

What’s spinning in my head
Is destined to stay
Lest it pass my lips
And the world comes crashing down.

Sit Still.

Sit still.
I just can’t seem to
Grasp this absurd concept.
Be still.

When Cheesy Turns Sad, Poems Go Bad

I can’t stop smiling
When I’m with you
I can’t stop staring
When I’m with you
