let me cure the fresh wounds in your back,
and cover all of those scars
that shame you.
Rest in my lap your head,
so that I might tend to your pain,
welcome the tears that beat
at the door of your chest,
and let their rivers fold
then cascade down my knees
gathering peacefully at my feet.
Let me comb your hair
from of your face,
there! I see it,
those eyes that look for love
in the wrong places,
and a smile of silver,
beneath emerald eyes!!!
What a treasure you are
my dearest, my seeker of pain.
Rest at my side,
free yourself from the crusade
against your soul this frigid night.
Let me be a mother,
to your seeking soul.
in my nest you are welcome
till you are ready to fly once more.
Let me be your mother,
lost child to the cities,
let me gather your fragile
and broken bones,
merely covered by the thin
mantle of your pale skin,
cry my little child,
let your pain leak out and vanish.

Only God knows why.
Whimpering and trembling,
an animal left to die.
Your actions strike me,
equally as harsh as your words.
My screams can be heard
echoing for miles I am sure.
You are someone I detest,
but no matter how much I try,
my words cannot express,
how you make me want to die.
My nails claw at my palms.
My teeth chatter and scrape.
My mind is screaming and crying,
'You. You I fucking hate.'

Are to ink and blood
To cause a flood
Of emotions and pain
That rip at the heart
And threaten to tear
The suffering apart.
Body and mind
Combine into one.
Whether mental or physical,
The enemy won.
Given up in life.
Given up on tomorrow.
Bleeding out your soul
And releasing your sorrow.
Bleeding onto the paper
Or onto the floor.
Both an addiction
Leaving you wanting more,
Leaving you with an affliction
Where you're trapped in your mind,
Buried too deep
For others to find
Till you write your final letter
Retelling how you did try,
How you fought off the urges
But are saying goodbye
For red is the only
Color you can still see.
Bleed your mind and your body
And set yourself free.

how are you?
asked as a formality,
no time to hear the answer,
just keep walking.
how are you?
a shit reply
to a half heart question.
I've never told
the same lie
so many times
I want to scream I am not alright
I'm pulling my hair out when you turn your back
blinking back tears
in the silence of the library stacks,
I am all wrong
everything's all wrong
alright is just the lie that keeps me looking sane.
I want to scream I am not alright,
but the screams come out as whispers
and the ones who hear won't listen.
I'm dangling from the chain with a broken clasp
and I never wanted to fall so badly.
but I'm alright, no worries.
mediocre at best
I smile and save you the time.
because the answer is unnecessary
for a question that has no inquiry.

We used to tell each other
Without fearing judgement
Back before we both became
Broken bits of something
That once was beautiful
I suppose we were just children
And had no real grasp on
But I miss the days when
I didn't have to wonder
If you would be okay
Or live another day
Now we put on faces
As though we are strangers
And use the words "I'm fine"
As a barrier to hide behind
We pretend we don't know better
Than to believe
Where is my best friend?
I miss our conversations
Although, I suppose
You think the same things
But we are both too scared
To just let go, stop pretending
And let someone in

you're not here with me
although it hurts deep inside
there's always something we hide
whether it's tears, scars or just pure pain
we find people that help us look past the rain
in your darkest hour, the times that hurt so
I just want you to finally know
we may not be there and our words are like a ghost
you may not know this but we care the most
While the rest of the world has tossed you away
only to darken your sunny day
my wishes for this prayer to reach your ears
and with it wash away all your fears
when the life you have has beat you down
and left you with this emotionless frown
it is here you will see
you've always been free
the friends who love who you are
every part of you, even the scars
this is my blessing to you young friend
in us you can always depend
come back to us just like before
you don't have to hurt anymore

the words that described the state of an old heart,
the darkness embraced it and led her mind astray,
as if that was a disease, mercilessly tearing it apart...
A change of the reality as it once was;
as she remembered,
of the love in her heart she so dreadfully treasured...
"Take this pain and turn it into a beautiful memory,
my heart shall carry it from here to the eternity,
I'll remember it everytime I turn on our melody...
Bring the light to my dark forgotten soul,
that once was eaten by a cruel sorrow,
put the broken pieces together and set them to eternal dreams..."
Fragile, seeking for a man of her lost fairytale,
was it, indeed, too late for a fix,
of midnight skies her skin appeared so pale,
lost and regretful,
desperate for a one last kiss.
The Great JourneyLife is full of paradoxes and detours. It's total chaos and a work of perfection, full of highs; of love and innocence and learning and laughter. It's a mess of loss and sorrow and mistakes. It's regret and memory and decisions. It's a gorgeous unique work of art that can only be understood by you and God. Don't ever give it up. And when you feel like quitting, like destroying everything, and smashing it to bits, just stop and look at it. Look at every turn you made, every misstep you took, every beautiful curve and ugly scar and realize that you made it. You made it here, to where you are. There has never been anyone like you in the history of the universe, nor will there ever will be. Scream at the top of your lungs, cry, laugh, rejoice. You're here.The Great Journey2 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This

The debilitating relzization of being

Tying to put on a smile.
But the thing is,
Hideing if your sad requires someone To hide it from.
To a dark, empty house.
So voild of life
So silent that your breath is the Only audible noise.
I mean the, no person including you Has ever loved you, kind of alone.
It's a funny thing being alone.
But I guess im the only one laughing.

UntitledWe’re all a bit brokenUntitled4 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Our mirrors show the cracks in our skin well
Though sometimes we’re the only ones who can tell
That we’re paying a price deep in our shattered hearts;
We indeed are our harshest critics
Judging every blemish
And we surround ourselves with what we want in life—
Or we struggle to do so:
Our friends are supposed to be our shield
Our family is supposed to be our support
Yet we sit alone quiet in dark rooms and curse at ourselves
Digging nails in vulnerable skin
Wanting to rip it off and paint us anew;
Do you really love your partner?
Can you tolerate your friends?
I fucking hate them all, I swear I do
No, I don’t, how could I say such a thing?
Please sate this war happening inside me,
It’s making me bleed
And I want to be fucking dead.

All those fights
That would often last
Late into night?
You say it was him?
I'm not so sure.
But I do know you
Aren't so demure.
You threw things
And put holes in the wall.
Once threatened suicide.
I saw it all.
I lived my life
By that strife.
Two years in
There came another.
A little boy
Known as my brother.
Still you shouted
And my fear
Kept on increasing.
Until one day
We up and moved.
Back to where
Your mood might improve.
You chose to leave
And move in with your mother.
Leaving me with
My good dad and brother.
The years passed
But you didn't come home.
It felt like you left me
As time passed
You tried to control me.
Well, that plan backfired.
You acted like a bully.
You don't care
About me at all.
Anyone who looked closely
Would be appalled.
So tell me, mother
What do you think?
Are you afraid of losing me?
You're on the brink.

NooostalgiaRemember when we loved our earthNooostalgia7 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
We used to be entertained by many great things
Like water and food
Love and happiness
Equal opportunities after equal opportunities
I would always hold you until the day we shriveled
Our dust passed through the almighty evil
And then we got captured by the almighty evil
It seems that they wanted to do the deeds of the devil
Because the devil wants us all to be dead human cells
Then we were treated with treason
Killed, whipped, abused for no apparent reason
All we wanted was to live and be free
But they would never listen and just kick our asses
However, we would always have faith
That somewhere up there love will always be
Our unborn children and our dead relatives
Watching us and rooting us from up above
Of course the almighty evil could not hear the cheer
Instead all they could hear was money and our screams
They turned our earth from selfless into selfish
Turned our earth into beast from beauty
Turned our earth from love to hate
So, my final question

Deafened by his malicious laughter
Scarred by his delicious caresses...
You destroyed the very world
