Life Is A Trip By: Michael Rios

15 06 2010

Life Is A Trip

In MY mind
Life is a trip
So pack up your bags our plane leaves at six.
There is no telling where were headed
The futures in our hands,
You got the choice to stay home
Or go out and visit uncharted lands.
Like
Stardom Island
Or the
Lost City of Love.

Or you can stay on loser lane
Fronting every weekend at the club
Thinking the only way to get out the hood is to sell drugs.
But drugs are the only things that will keep you in the hood
Living at your moms house
Out all night with your boys up to no good.
Talking about what you could have done
Instead of going after what you want
And doing what you should.

You had all your stuff packed
And were destined
To reach your desired destination
But laziness mixed with no self-confidence is a terrible combination

You were just too scared to face the ups and downs of life.
Blamed it on motion sickness,
I bet if you could go back in time
You would do it with the quickness.

Many people missed the flight in the past.
So don’t let you be the next
You just got to get up in do it,
It isn’t even that complex.
If you’re trying to be a hit
Then get a better grip,
And make sure the you inform the next man
About how life is a trip.






The Death of A Rose By: Michael Rios

The Death of A Rose

External Beauty exists only momentarily.
Splendor fades with age.
Life cannot blossom in the shade.
We’re all in need of the warmth of day.

Auburn petals are disowned.
Frigid air blows in the wind,
Bleach colored pixels cover the ground.
There’s nothing around you.
Some have passed away,
Others have migrated,
Emptiness surrounds you.

Your pigment has vanished.
Winters damage was too much to manage.
The condensed days and protracted nights,
Were overrun by layers of ice.
Death has arrived.

Who will mourn the loss?
Season’s change,
Snow turns to rain,
Love turns to pain,
The life of a flower and a man are quite the same.
Once you become admired and desired
It eventually ends at the hands of the gyres.





Nightmare #23 By: Michael Rios

Nightmare #23

Magenta skies
Feverish clouds

Is it all over?
The heavens are bleeding
Society is rioting
Everyone is petrified

Stuck… as if they looked into Medusa’s eyes

Why try, when the only thing that justifies life is when you die.

Destined to wander foolishly around this worn out terrain
Down for the count
Life sucked out of the earth
A Victim of Dracula’s bite

Destined to be forgotten

I think its over… It has to be
Our society abandoned morals
Lost its sanity
Embraced greed and turning their backs on humanity

Taught that the only way one could succeed is by another’s demise
A Dog eat dog world
Where cannibalistic mentalities are promoted

No time for love, a rich estate is much more important
Only suckers run the street at night

In search of a lie





The Absense of Gravity By: Michael Rios

The Absence of Gravity

If there was no more gravity
The heavens would fall into my lap
Constellations would stretch across my denim trousers
As if a spider embroidered his meal trap

I would play tennis with Venus
Just to upset Serena
And give the rings of Saturn to an elegant ballerina
I would play basketball with Mars
Just to upset Jordan
And give a couple black holes to an angry warden
I would play marbles with Mercury
Just to upset Geico
And give a meteor shower to a filthy psycho

I would help groom the Moon,
Manicure God’s thumbnail
And Use the Big Dipper as a spoon

If there was no more gravity
I wouldn’t have to ask for space
But people talk a lot of shit
Please get Uranus out of my face
Now that the earth is in my palm
And stars always surround me
I would never let Neptune drown me
Because my mom told me that her Sun makes the world go round
And love is the only gravity that holds you down

Nothing is stupider than being scared of Jupiter…





Love Poem # 47~ Ode to Aphrodite By: Michael Rios

22 01 2010

In my poetry workshop I was given 12 words and told to create a poem that dealt with vulnerability.
This is what I came up with… hope you enjoy!


Love Poem # 47: Ode to Aphrodite

Everyone is vulnerable
Susceptible to attack
Surrounded by sharks like an ISLAND
Those who DECLARE that they are unbreakable
End up with shattered egos
Doomed to stare at SEPIA images
Colorless self-portrayals
Plagued by ALOOF demeanors

We are all prisoners to our weak positions
Handcuffed by MISCONCEPTIONS
BRACELETS of insecurity are proudly displayed on our WRISTS
Our bodies are covered in garments made of rough SILK
So everything will appear to be okay even though it isn’t

Nothing in this world is ever what it seems
Even mountains appear FLAT
Behind the eyes of a MASCULINE feminist

The GODDESS of Love is to blame for our vulnerabilities
Wake up and smell the COFFEE





A Love Forsaken By: Michael Rios

A Love Forsaken

If you were still by my side,
I wouldn’t be in so much pain.
When you left it hurt my pride,
And I can’t get you off my brain.

I wouldn’t be in so much pain,
Enduring sleepless nights.
We were way too old for stupid games
Yet all we did was fight.

Enduring sleepless nights,
Your beauty haunts me in my dreams.
I really thought that we were tight,
Nothing is ever what it seems.

Your beauty haunts me in my dreams.
I wish that it would stop.
No one else could make a better team,
That is why I am still in shock.

I wish that it would stop,
Too much pain for one to grasp.
So my heart continues to rot.
Nothing this great will ever last.

Too much pain for one to grasp,
Not enough help for one to use.
So I must try to forget the past,
And not rely so much on booze.

Not enough help for one to use.
Only me, myself, and I.
I was only hurt by the bad news,
Because you never told me why.

Shout out to Ryan for the AMAZING visual.
