What happened to you?
You used to be so smooth
quick on your feet
and great with words,
you’ve lost your touch.
You used to spit words out
like a faucet did water,
like a dragon did fire,
like a snake does its tongue.
You were unstoppable,
and then you stopped.
You knew what to say
you just didn’t know how to say it.
You were your own enemy,
self-destruction was your term
You put yourself in a box
lit a match and watched it burn.
Now that fire is burning out
and every ash has turned into sand
but like a phoenix you will rise
and your words will reborn again.
You’re grown but yet you act young
even the adolescents could be more mature
you were the first to get in the ring
but I beat you to the punch
knocked out cold, you went down without a fight Continue reading ““Realization” by Ciano”
I swallowed the gun you used to kill me
shot out tears of bullets through the tear glands in my eyes
but to my heart, I was surprised
my body still warm from a person that’s so cold
sprained and fractured through the body of my soul Continue reading ““Downhearted” by Ciano”
Haunted by the spirit of what we once called love
begging me to follow the light into the stars above

I was willing to fight it through, even if it took its toll Continue reading ““Perchance” by Ciano”
You told me not to fall for you
but as clumsy as I am, how could I resist?
To some that might be stupid,
but to me, it was love. Continue reading ““Too Late” by Ciano”
Time ain’t free,
and I paid for it when I decided to give you mine.
All of those lonely mornings and cold nights
could never be reimburse,
and every tear I cried Continue reading ““Testimony” by Ciano”
When you’re soaked in tears
it never airs out.
I tried every option
under my belt Continue reading ““Revelation” by Durand Coles”
I am me,
I am stuck in my ways, but I am still growing as an individual. I know that I am not perfect, but somehow I try to be. Continue reading ““I Am Me” by Ciano”
Couldn’t run from myself if I tried
not my looks or my walk or the accent when I talk
to say I never even tried I’d be telling you a lie Continue reading ““Acceptance” by Ciano”
I tried to be more understanding
yet you understood me less
I tried to be less angry and more sweet
tears inside my body from my head to my feet Continue reading ““Unanswered” by Ciano”
