when you stare at the ceiling for too long
can confuse and disorientate
you into thinking
that you're lying in a field
or on a beach
and looking up into the clouds
and that everything is alright
when it's not
and then you realise
it's just the ceiling

of a careful conceit,
we could be forever
and sore bruises
a medley of shit,
pores made of plastic,
and breathing becomes
and trying tears
and we see
that we both died a little
on the inside
over the years.
what brought us
to this place
was it the way
you chew your fingernails
when you are curious
about my day?
or the way
I can't stop myself
when the dishes go unwashed?
You very nearly
drove me to murder.
The insurance claim
would have been enough
incentive on its own.
But you -
you decided to make it easy.
I coped out
at the last minute.
I could have been a widow.
Instead I'm just divorced.

that your gone and I'm left to wander.
By myself in a world of fear.
Things were so much easier when you were here.
I miss your presence from day to day.
And I'm left to stare in an empty place.
I don't know how I've gotten this far,
Without breaking down and falling apart.
You will always be a part of me I promise this with all my heart,
And I know that your with me...even though we are worlds apart.
I will never forget you and all that you've done,
To keep me laughing when I thought my life was done.
Now, at the time when I need you most,
The only thing that remains is your spirit and ghost.
You've always been and always will be special to me.
Your the one I love and you always will be.
Prayer to pagan godsAita, lord of the dead,Prayer to pagan gods4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Of the underworld and
All beneath the soil,
The great owner of the
Riches of the earth and
The king of the departed,
Bless me with your dark;
Unto you I offer payment
For the promises of rich
And services of the soul;
While breathing I wish
Protection in the night,
And after death a place
In your kingdom.
None is more fair a judge
Than the Dis Pater Aita;
A great Father you are,
The fertility of the Earth
And secure afterlife are
The biggest of your gifts.
Neito, lord of the Sun,
War and Fire,
Great warrior of the Sky,
I seek strength to fight;
Nothing amuses you as
Much as destruction and
The smell of blood and
So aid me and give me
If only to amuse you.
I dedicate all my meals
Of flesh and blood unto
The Helios Hyperion Neito,
And all blood that I loose
And all lives that I may take
Unto the lord of heavenly
These gods I praise,
And these gods I serve,
And although many more
Are the gods in the world
These are my patrons.
What's been keeping you?I can see youWhat's been keeping you?5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I can know you
I can love you
You let me almost close enough
To see who you truly are
I'm on the verge of loving you
Close to a wish upon a star
Every time I almost fall
Into the dream that is love
Something pulls me back again
Onto a cliff far above
It's easier, living on the edge
And waiting for life to find me
Yet I can't help but know, if one of us fell
How happy we both would be

So I don't depend on you,
To carry on.

But I knew better.
She wanted you to herself,
But really you were another trophy on her shelf.
She tried to keep us apart,
Little did she know that I've always had your heart,
Trying her best to steal what was left,
But my love for you was too deft.
I sat waiting for my chance when you would see,
That you and me were always meant to be.
When she had you,
Never was her heart true.
I sat patiently for her to release her grasp,
She was a thorn in my spine and nothing more than a striking asp.
She held on to what life was left in you,
You stood there taking it without a clue.
Back and forth it went for 2 years
Trying to hide my greatest fears.
Tears I cried waiting to see,
If you and I were meant to be.
She finally removed her simulated guise
And you reluctantly opened your eyes.
You let go of the past,
When you saw she was a cheater in social caste.
Now she keeps trying to get you back,
Not even realizing I filled your heart with everything she la

Rejection, causing pain
As if my heart was slain

The pain, it won`t be brief
This pain, I will endure
I can do it, of this i`m sure.

this creepy, crawling being,
her devices sinister,
and her intentions selfish.
This is not me,
this sweet, endearing child,
her thoughts pure,
and her actions selfless.
I am possessed
by powers other than myself.
These hands are not my own,
these fingers do another's bidding,
I am alone,
in a corner of my mind,
I cannot tell you
how much I regret.
if this be a dream,
it is the most disturbing

The Thunderhawks burst through the cloud cover of Anmars atmosphere and into the bright mid-day sun. With engines roaring and blue and bone colored hulls glinting in the sun, the powerful assault craft angled in low and northward like giant birds of prey. Their objective the dry grassy mountain hills in the distance and the city of Dedulis.
Onboard the lead Thunderhawk, all was quiet, dark, and solemn save for the dim red ready lights and the howl of wind. Inside, ten Assault Marines of the Sacred Knights Chapter knelt in two neat rows, face to face. Their massive armored forms were resolute and still as they were bathed in red light.
The stillness was broken from a shadowy corner of the troop section as an eleventh Marine approached the praying squad. Chaplain Haikon, the Master of Sanctity for the Chapter, stood tall and proud over his unofficial entourage, a masterfully crafted gold and black storm bolter slung

Blood is love
Blood is passion
Blood is in me
And so is blood that is in you
Blood makes the world go round

Does it make you?
Blood unifies me

Blood is everywhere
Blood is precious
It is not a thing to waste
Blood makes you bleed
Blood makes you breathe
Blood is chaos
It is a gossip
Blood is in all of us

Who cares if it is labelled as a "Mental Illness"?
I'm sick of labels.
I'm sick of judgement.
I'm sick of people.
I'm sick of "being sick".
Do I look like I'm sick?
Can you tell by my face, that there's more to me beneath my skin?
Can you look behind my eyes and see more than my insecurities?
Can you tell me if you know how to make it all go away?
No, you can't. No one can. I'm "incurable".
Huh, if only I was sick in the first place.

Jenny and I became friends the day she learned of her potential sickness. She had a half-half chance of getting Huntingtons, the genetic disease that could one day reduce her to a slobbering, helpless shell. I remember her being shocked, too stunned to speak to anyone, as if that would stop the word from spreading. She soon became known as the Huntingtons girl, though not to her face. She knew so just the same.
By then I went everywhere with her. I helped her develop the pattern of life that would get her through the first year. Wake up. Eat. School. Eat. Sleep.
I guess I could end it at any time. She told me once. But I wont. I want to make the most of the time I have left

Defile my existence.
Merciful sorrow consumes my soul.
Pity is only a fulfillment.
Deny your soul.
Devour the tainted haert.
My dying request, is that it lay,
In the sea of blood,
That is none but your own.
The chains rob me of pride.
I'm not the one that offers protection.
No matter what the pain you've caused,
I'm not the one to share your affection.
You push from the inside out.
You dangled my heart atop my head.
Redeam your soul.
Your lies outgrow you.
Ropes like knives.
Burns like ice.
Cuts into my flesh.
Don't you recall the pleas?
The crys of despair?
I can only pray mercy upon your soul.

No contact with the outside
Plenty of food but no interaction
No hope, no dreams, no aspiration,
Just waiting for an opportunity
An option to change one's life
When finally scraped from home
Such a chance to spread ones wings
Only failing, thus landing in the flames.

May fourteen, in the year 2008. That particular day is as clear to me as an extreme high-resolution photograph. It was the day of my inevitable birthday (which I look forward to every year), it was the day my parents jumped with joy (I wonder if they did), and it was the day I finally came into existence into this world known as the Earth, (I was eternally grateful for that) which is a single planet spinning in a Stellar Galaxy known as the Solar System.
In the many years I spent on this planet, I have seen many things ordinary people did not see. I have seen whole countries annihilated in the name of justice. I have seen computer systems that got hacked into i
