Purple DreamsOur dreams are all a lilac haze
they wander through a lavender maze
and recall the past in violet rays-
it's purple all about our gaze
and purple in its subtle ways
-purple till the end of days.
  On The Collapse Of Modern Society"I've never seen so many folks
putting their hopes 
in packaged air,
as far as I'm concerned,
and from what I've observed
misplacing material worth while 
rushing back and forth
to get nowhere."
my Grandma said, 
shaking her head.
  The Pen, The SwordJust lovely
I was happy to fall asleep
in the welcoming warmth of your words and
you were unaware that you held me
so close, and so carefully
from the moment before I heard you speak
to the taste of every sentence you spoke
I knew you were the very truth that I'd
been seeking all along
Just barely
I would loathe to fall so deep
in the sharpened edges of your words and
you were too aware that you had me
so close, and so carelessly
from the first second I heard you break
to the taste of every sentence you broke
I knew you were the very truth that I'd
been avoiding all along
In ProgressWhen we're small, flowers and smiles
always lack shadows
the only difference between
hate and love
the silly things we say
I don't mind early morning music
looking away 
I see you wishing
dear, darling young woman
realizations will regret sleep deprivation
when I'm gone
my wildest dreams speeding away
all that's left those words
lost in my head 
you are confused mixed feelings
in the end I don't exist to you
stopping time for a while 
strong enough to say goodbye 
  I Believed In YouI remember the moment I stopped believing in you. You had just made another promise and I could hear the lie saturating your voice. I could hear you blowing bubbles in the future with your lips, while true to form your little lies would often swell to the size of galaxies before winking out into bare nothingness under the stress of all my dreams. You knew what would happen, I realized, you knew that these ideas of mine which you always encouraged could never last more than a second in comparison to the blessedly long lives that we'd be living.
 I finally saw these promises of yours as what they were: careless murders. You would happily turn my small and flickering flame into a roaring blaze, only to quench it so quickly that I questioned whether you had a heart. How could you bring something so precious to life, only to kill it before it could ever truly live? 
 I remember the moment I stopped believing in you. You had just made another promise and I

Bone TiredScars scribbled on the very frame of your existence tell stories- 
the flesh you wear like precious lace on your bones is 
another exquisite gift of pure porcelain and 
other cliches you don't have time for 
-written in its careful questions
such worthy, weary skin

  rest, it begs
  sleep and let the night 
  take me where I never was before
  with centuries whispered into your being
  you crave only the warmth of the forbidding sun.
  Fifty Shards: Light (41-50)41. Open
Outstretched arms.
42. Hypothesis
An idea I'd like to try.
43. Herring
Silver fish, spineless single dorsal fin.
44. Water
Lapping on my shore in waves.
45. Appeal
Euphonious and decadent words catching fancy. 
46. Rise
Lift your head from its' pillow
bring your body to its' feet
rise, the presence and warming glow
of the sun to gladly meet. 
47. Recovery
I remember the way his hands used to shake
the way his eyes used to search for the ghosts that always haunted him
the emptiness in his vacant words but now
he's firmly in the world and I
no longer worry that he'll fade away.
48. Music
Emotion moves through me in waves.
49. Finished
But nothing is ever truly finished.
50. Spirit
Essence of a soul: purpose, determination.
  Ink StainThere's something about making these lines
the disconnect between the ink and the words in my mind
that makes me wonder if it all makes its way to you
or if you only see traces of what I can really do
Are they real?
tangible, that your heart can touch them?
Or just an illusion 
I'm a plain magician
doing parlor tricks in the back
pulling fancy phrases out of a hat
My skill is unmatched 
and you seem unattached
from what I do
and maybe it's true
that you don't see
the things I want you to learn from me
My lessons remain untaught
and I see boredom in your eyes
you wish something to be bought
maybe new ties
my wisdom evaporates
you don't inhale
you're dying at a rapid rate
my teachings start to fail
I'm at a loss
I thought this bridge could be crossed
but you fell
and you don't respond at all to my spell
how can you possibly be revived
when I'm not even sure if you were ever alive?
Translucentand you always see right through
I've called it my masterpiece
but you've disapproved
you told me that you always preferred natural sunlight
to the dim sort of darkness I surround myself with-
you've disapproved 
but I'm scared that it won't matter anyway
  You (Loved By A Butterfly)"You"
I whispered at the top of my lungs
as I looked on in tears, the end deep and near 
while each breath steeply stung, 
"are my favorite surprise this morning"

and I watched, basking in your presence dear
all [a gossamer rose] knowing it could never come to more
although I was never blessed with one better to adore
you bestowed a gift of distanced admiration
loving what I was but it was me you could never love 
as I loved wholeheartedly, without reservation

are the way of the gentle currents of air 
that have been known to sweep me far and wide
in search of a rhythm by which I could abide,
my dreams carried heavenward by your breezes there

I take your oil for death: always devoted, delicate
a powerful consequence, your touch to precipitate"

remember, you were chilled by rising dewdrops 
and shivered as you stepped over the rocks 
to my perc

chromeantennae's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
United States
If you don't care to read the entire bio, here's the condensed version. Quite simply, I write 'cause I love it. I write about things in my life. Everything is based off of my life, in some shape or form. And I love everything I hate and could never hate what I truly love. I also like receiving feedback and notes so say, "hi." I'll always respond back. :)

I thought I'd go ahead and spruce up my bio 'cause maybe people actually wanna know a little more about me as a person, than just a guy who writes and talks a lot. LOL!

Well, for starters my name is Ricky. I'm 17 years old, just a regular ol' teenage guy for the most part. Ha! And as far as how I am.......there's been a lot of stuff that have really influenced who I am, y'know? My parents are a huge inspiration for me and without them, I know for a fact I wouldn't be who I am today. Uh, dang I hate writing about myself. :XD:

In a nutshell, I believe in a higher power, but am not extremely "religious," I try my best to be the kindest, most altruistic person I can be, and I constantly want to improve upon everything I do. Whether it be something important like school, my relationships with all my loved ones; or something to poetry, or something stupid and meaningless like video games. LOL! I'm a very competitive person so I wanna be the best I can be at anything and everything, and maybe ultimately be THE best. :)

And uuuh.......yeah! That's all I have for now. LOL! If you guys want to know more about me, please don't hesitate to note me or comment on my page. I love receiving notes and feedback! :D

And here's the group I'm so proud to call myself the co-founder of: Dreamers-Welcome :icondreamers-welcome:. It's an awesome group if I do say so myself, and I would love it if you guys checked it out. Everyone is welcome to join! :)
