maybe i was lonley,
maybe i was sad ,
but maybe i wasn't the only gril that ever had,
a forgotten heart,
a heart that needs to learn to restart,
a that is covered in woodworm and cobwebs,
a heart that doesn't want to see day again,
and maybe if i wandered back into the sun a god would gentely touch me,
and make me whole again.

a well of misfortune, shattered hours,
pieces of night and liquid decades.
A bird crosses the universe
and in the corner of eternity it warbles
a song that encloses everything.
I escape to the route of tempest:
the galaxy, oniric labyrinths,
a spiral path to madness.

Flowing ever freely, in a mystical dance
Dancing all Her worries away
Gently lapping waves shifting and forming endlessly
Lights up the surrounding figures
A glint of hope through the darkness.
He keeps away all of the monsters at night,
During your most haunted moments.
Offers a surface to walk on
Keeps all of nature together.
He makes sure we can't fall
Though He isn't perfect.
Invisible to the ones passing
Whispering in their ears for them to follow.
She has no shape or form,
Yet She is the wisest amongst us.
The water, the fire, the earth, the air.
All deadly yet generous in their own ways.

our sentences lack all the proper meaning. we only say what we're feeling when we're feeling nothing at all and keep all the most important things we could ever think to say safe beneath guarded tongues. we are clever in all the wrong ways.
it's about how we do all the things we're expected to because to actually do what we want the mostthe things that scare uswould mean having to take a risk. we might need to deal with the possibility that we have something to lose by doing nothing at all.
there is a complete certainty that we've gotten content in our lonelinessin our misery. we're stuck standing still, not at all responsible for the way we function, because even our hearts just keep beating because it's committed to memorynot because we make them. not because we want them to. we are incomplete in exactly the way we want to be.

grass tickling the tips of your toes
and you scream
noise is all there is -
emotion drained from your system through way of your lungs
and then, there is nothing left
muscles relax, head sinking into the ground,
falling slightly to the left
broken twigs litter the ground beside you
still clinging onto their leaves -
bright green in the cloud-dulled moonlight
you realise you love them more than anything else in this world
because you know that sometimes,
the broken things need the most love
you burn the book you write in
smoke fills your nostils, stings your eyes
and you realise that the ashes swept by the wind
carry the only emotion you've ever felt
you let them scatter
because you know that you need to destory everything
in order to have nothing
and be happy with it
A Small, Good ThingHer mother used to take her out for rides on the motorbike at night. The girl would cling to her mother's jacket, perched on the back of the seat. They used to ride around the island in the dark. It only took half an hour to go all the way around and back to their house. They'd ride by the sea, black as oil in the night, and by the rental houses and the pancake house and the fire house. The daughter would often stay up, if she happened to wake in the night, in the hope that she'd hear the garage door opening.A Small, Good Thing6 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
After the divorce, when the house on the island was sold and they moved to a place where the out-of-doors at night was no place for women, they would sometimes get up at night to sit at the kitchen table. The girl had night terrors, even sitting in silence at the table with her mother was much better than being alone in a room with the lights off.
"I've been talking to a man on A.O.L.." her mother said one night.
The girl looked up at her, knees to her chin and arms around her kne

As I stand over your grave and cry, I can't help but wonder, where did you go? It's been three years that I've been without you, my brother, I miss you so much! Life hasn't been the same without you here with us, Jim. No one laughs anymore. Everyone misses that shit-eating grin of yours, we miss it so much. That smile, I never thought I could miss it so much. Only until I heard the news that you were gone, that's when I realized I would forever miss it. Jimmy, be proud of us while we live out your legacy please? We're going on; we're doing this for the fucking fans, and you.
When I seen the news I died inside. My heart sank and I sulked to the floor and stared absently at the wall. Jimmy, what, no! He wouldn't leave us! He can't leave all his fans, his family, his brothers, me. Jimmy, who was always so carefree and happy. He wouldn't sink down to the hollow depths of death, would he? It could never be imagined that Jimmy would be gone. He was in our lives for eighteen years and now he'

It's hard to remember that sometimes when a door shuts, it just stays closed. There's no other consequence. No other opportunity. Just one more way you can't go. One more person that you can't follow. Sometimes, you're just as stuck as you feel so it doesn't matter if the earth travels one million six hundred thousand miles through space every day. You are in the same place as yesterday so all that other movement is just superfluous. It's not bringing anyone closer together. It's not going toward any sort of destination. There is no end. No point. It's just ceaseless movement through an ever-expanding universe that only keeps getting bigger until you're simply a tiny pinpoint that feels absolutely alone. And meaningless. Unnecessary. And all of this just makes it feel overwhelmingly true.
The truth is most of the roads here only go one way.
Some days, you believe you can get out of here and live somebody else's life in some other place and with all of th
AvalanchesRaising his eyes in time to see Belphegor finally pull out the final knife from the man they had killed only moments ago, Mammon sighs quietly. A small puff of visible air floats away from his slightly parted lips, staying a while before dissipating in the air. They've spent enough time in this damned cold already, hunting down and slaughtering all those who had thought they could escape from them. Annoying. The longer they stay out, the less money they'll receive for completing the mission. Sighing again, the arcobaleno lowers himself to the ground before frowning sharply at the snow he's waist deep in.Avalanches4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

The blonde in question slowly tilts his head to the side, keeping his full attention on the corpse at his feet. He's faced away from Mammon, can feel the baby's glare in his spine. It tingles, as if he was being burned. It's a fun

I sit on the slippery stone steps,
at the gates of my Father's heaven.
My back to the cold wall enough,
that men in dusty pants and
mud-laden boots can thump past,
their tired, weary legs fly fast
across my freckled face.
Father inside, far end,
a stool-throned King, his face not fat
and sometimes our eyes meet
through cloud and darkness,
when the door swings open
to let another thirsty angel in or out,
in this chamber, the trip from Hell to Heaven
is measured only
by the length of a glass of dark ale
or a honey coloured shot of sour whiskey.
Angie skips back and forth
across the sidewalk, with only chalk,
and hopscotch on her mind
and I find time
between math and scripture,
to watch her movements,
and check for cars
and she hums to herself all the while.
Mrs McLine, with sad green eyes
brings cups of tap water
and sugared red syrup, at Five-Fifteen and flicks my hair
and smiles sweetly at Angie, while slowly,

Have you ever felt so alone
that when someone touches you
it chills you to the bone?
Have you ever been neglected
because you were someone
who had always been rejected?
Have you ever cut through your skin,
indulging in the pain,
instead of asking for forgiveness for your sin?
Have you ever had a family
who would not care if you died,
but instead would have a monumental jamboree?
If you are someone who answered no
to any or all of all of the questions above
I have one more question to ask before you go
Do you ever imagine living life
where love is a foreign term
and everyday is filled with grief and strife?
Because that is the life I live everyday
and thats because I was left alone in the dark
and eventually I closed my eyes and lost my way

Tears show feelings
Tears of happiness
Tears of anger
Tears of sadness
I don't know why
The tears fall down
When I'm filled with joy
Everything is good, all around
My body gets heated
As the tears fall effortlessly
But it only angers me more
And I hide my head in shame with people see
I cry these when I'm sad and alone
When it's okay to show the real me
Who cries tears of sadness everyday
But the world may never see
I love all of my tears
Because they make me who I am
But who really knows?
Maybe it's all a scam
