Shatter into countless pieces,
I crumble right in front of you,
With the first breeze I'm gone.
I fly through the streets,
All the noises I used to hear,
I have never been whole,
But at least now I'm free.

There are a lot of people who uses the phase, what a little world we are living in. Well, those who says this kind of idiotic stereotype, definitely not think about the fact, that a 510 072 000 km2 planet is not really small. However, at the same time what a strange joke is that from the 6, 5 billion Earth populations you are the one standing here today?

before it had a chance to fly
Well, that's what I get for trusting you with it
Hit me like a dummy
Dragged me like a rag doll
Ripped me open like a package
Left me bleeding in the hall
Your fingers were the blade
and your tongue was the salt
I'll step back and take a breath
look at everything I have left
and hope it's enough to pick myself up
I can't go back to where I started
I'll just have to start all over
Re-draw a map without any detours or dead ends
Tonight's the last night you get me
Midnight, my new life begins
You threw my heart up above the clouds

But I knew it would be that way.
And when everything seemed to have no end.
I saw the sun shine.
Trying to tell me that everything will be alright.
Without me knowing, I saw the sun set itself.
Without even knowing if I will ever see him again.
Let me feel again.
Lunch tablesThis was confusing.Lunch tables11 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Everyone sat at tables for lunch, talking amongst each other. Bishop students mixed with Queens and Pawns, so it wasn't a matter of classes. There was the rare black and white student sitting side by side, so it wasn't about sides. It was strange and Jolene didn't quite understand. This was her first time not eating in alone in a cafeteria, so maybe that was to be expected.
Elementary school forced children to sit in their classes. There were two tables per class, and the children further divided into male and female. Jolene learned the hard way that it was not that simple. From there, it was divided into peer groups. Jolene was not in school enough to make friends, due to constant sickness. She sat alone at the edge of the table, watching the other girls eat, listening to them talk. She observed, but she didn't quite understand. They all seemed to be friends, but how? But why?

My broken soul must watch
Layer after layer leave her being.
Beautiful smiles and passionate eyes,
Slowly fall to nothingness.
Nothing but hollow eyes
Never to be touched by paper lips smile.
When those paper lips part,
Despair just as great pours fourth,
For the voice that was once truth and reason,
Only knows broken promises and shattered dreams.
Only knows how to cry.
All she knows is the blackness of the world.
Memories of joy, of light, of love
Fled long ago from her crashing mind.
All that remains is sorrow.
She is not a shell
A shell still has something alive inside.
She is not broken
Teardrops and rain, what's the difference?Do you know what it feels like, being alone?Teardrops and rain, what's the difference?1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I see a raindrop rolling down the window
So long time of that lonely feeling
My eyes seem to collaborate with the weather...
I've never known what it feels like
Having something to fight for
Not like this anyway
It has changed me
You change me
I had all these defenses
I had settled down in my world, on my own
The sky is crying
Making teardrops rolling down my cheek
The sound of your heartbeat, I could listen to it all day long
The feeling of your touch, I wish you would never let go
I wipe the tears away angrily
Good girls don't cry
They joke about me

I thought I had left that shit behind
I thought I was done crying now
I thought I was stronger
but honey for you I'm so vulnerable
When you're not here with me a piece is missing
I just wanna go home
and home is wherever you are
Never before I wanted something so much like I want you
I want you to be here with me
Keeping those demons away
Making me laugh when I just feel like breaking down
Oh honey, end this crying and take me home...

A hole starts to open up in my chest
It's so ... dark
The train is near
You can't stay, we both know it
But how am I supposed to keep the smile on my face when you're not here any longer?
Your soft touch on my hand
It says it all
How you press it gently
You don't have to speak a word my dear
I see it all
But how am I supposed to keep my laugh real when you're not here?
I can feel it in your hug
How you never want to let go
Oh, me neither honey, me neither
I won't ever turn the back on you
But how am I supposed to keep the hope alive when you're not here with me?

Words that hurt. (now she knows why words are sometimes compared to a sword. but it's not quite right, she thinks. it should be a blade, so sharp that it would fall though flesh and bone as easily as a hot knife through butter)

I hear the distant sound of birds cawing and screeching
I make a sound deep in my throat
Not one that has any kind of word that would fit
But I suppose that longing would be the closest
Don't want to
So, I shall just follow the paths carved out eons ago
With eyes always straying
Looking at something beyond their sight
My mind isn't quite all there I think
But that's okay
If I'm insane
Then let me submerge myself into this world

Darkness swirling, puzzle pieces joining
Never were supposed to say a word
Never was the one that followed all the rules
It makes sense
And None at all
A forest ten steps to the right and one to the left
The camouflage the leaves possess
And the shadows that they make
Will never quite give way to the light
Do not come to look for me
In places Seen and Unseen
Do not find me
There but Not
I'm falling through the Cracks
And diving into madness
I will be forgotten
And Lost to everyone and everything
But that's okay
I like it that way
