Come in, come in...
Why go back home, why turn around?
The forest calls.. Can’t you hear the sound?
Come in, come in...
There is nothing to lose, and everything to win;
for this, this is not like anywhere you've ever been.
Here the trees twist, the branches twine
the twigs crack, the leaves rustle.
You won't get far, not moving a muscle.
Don't be afraid...
You could always stay
just till darkness falls?
Move.. come on, the forest calls!
Go on, and don't look back
Just follow the track, step by step.

old Oak tree who had
never seen the fluorescent light
of a supermarket plaza.
And she did not know what force
carved her into the tree,
but knew it to be true.
For as she sits, eyes closed, atop
yet another high peak, she feels
fixed to the sky, to the soil,
to the oaks and the elms,
and to the earth.
All that's left now is to keep climbing,
to find that old Oak tree who knows
nothing of fluorescent lights or supermarkets.
Because it is somewhere.

because ever since she saw her mother die of a needle injection
she's been wanting to give her blood away
just so she can know what it's like to take her final breath.
She's the girl who would listen to the same song on repeat for hours
just to get the same tingling feeling in her heart
because she never wants to let go,
but in reality she's never felt so afraid.
She's the girl who enjoys wearing ripped jeans
and oversized t-shirts,
because she's too afraid to expose herself
to the world
that broke her heart.
She's the girl who smiles over necklaces and promise rings
because she holds them dear to her heart
in a second heartbeat,
how dare you even see a smile.

Count to ten.
Slow your pulse.
Slow your mind.
-Just in time.
You can feel my anxiety
When you walk through the door.
Air thick as butter,
You find me on the floor.
From my head to my toes.
My heartbeat slows
Pale as death,
I'm coming to.
Counting ceiling tiles -haven't a clue-
Twenty down, ten across
Adorned with roses, garden moss.
My mother's eyes find mine,
But her voice is far away.
I imagine her as a ventriloquist dummy
-deserted by her master's voice.
I'd run to her, if I could
Up and out of this electric prison
-If only my body gave me that choice.
Here comes water,
The ice burns in my throat.
I feel like Helen Keller
Could work her miracles on me.
Somehow, together, we'd beat this disease.
I've got the eyes,

on the glass, as though tiny claws
without were scrabbling for
purchase. The November light
is feeble. It might not survive
much longer in this gloomy
I remember. The waves
lay dormant at the furthest limits
of the ebb. The horizon was hiding
from our sight behind a sopping
curtain of rain. I remember how
we trudged along the tidal margin,
with rubber boots, with yellow oilskin
coats and hats.
I was puny next to his great silent bulk.
"Look sharp!" was all he said,
"Walk fast, before the tide decides
it's time for coming back."
We collected shellfish
that felt stolen from the sea.

''And why is that?''
''Because, you're my missing chord in my broken song. You're the missing piece in my heart. I only feel complete when I'm with you.''
''But you shouldn't love me, there's nothing to love.''
''Are we talking about the same person here, baby doll? Because you're everything to me and more. I'm the one who doesn't deserve you. Why don't you ever sing anymore?''
''Because I have nothing left to sing about, I have nothing left in my heart- everything's been taken away. My heart is too numb to feel anything.''
''What if I try and fix you? I miss your voice, angel.''
''You can try all you want, but my voice will always be broken.''

I remember you fighting for sobriety
because you realized that drugs have taken over your body
since you barely could even function without heroin,
but I always told you that you were strong enough to make it
when all you ever did was laugh
and say that you deserved nothing but hell.
(The truth is that I didn't want to lose you
because you owned a part of my heart
that I knew I could never have back,
and I always wanted to hold on to you
because you always made me feel more strong.)
I remember fighting with you to make you see just how much you were worth it,
but no matter what I did your voice would crack
as you injected poison into your skin
so you could never breathe again.
That's why whenever you whispered ''I love you''
I would close my eyes so that I couldn't see you anymore.
This way you're already gone,
and it hurts less when I finally open my eyes again
because you won't be here.

the morning you died
because when you took your final breath,
you took my heart with you.
The doctors said that I have broken-heart-syndrome
as I hold back a faint cry that is building inside of me
but I desperately fail as your face pictures in my mind,
and I swear that I've never missed you this much before
but the thing I miss most about you is your voice.
I remember how every morning you would wake up just to sing to the birds
as you always gracefully danced around in the kitchen,
and you always had a smile as bright as the sun
as your voice sent chills up my spine.
(I remember laying in bed under the covers
just to hear you sing,
and I remember crying myself to sleep at the thought of losing you.)
I remember how when you got sick your voice didn't have your natural beauty anymore-
instead all it had was a natural pale tone,
and your smile washed away like the rest of you.
I remember how whenever you turned around,

you didn't think I saw you punch your fist in the mirror,
but my secret is that I watched the whole thing
as tears poured down my wet face
because I knew just how much you were suffering.
(And the truth is
that I've never met anyone more alike me before,
because I see so much me in you.)
I remember how I heard your voice whisper, ''I'm a monster''
as you swallowed a whole thing of pills
just to see if you could still feel
because your heart felt so numb that you couldn't feel a thing.
The truth is that I wanted to drown your sorrows away
because I never wanted to lose you.
And I always used to sing you a song as your eyes turned puffy and red
just so you could smile again,
but nothing ever works anymore
because your heart faded away.

It's been six months since I've seen your face,
and I miss seeing your smile
because your face would always make my heart burst out in a love song
as butterflies swarmed all over my stomach.
Ever since you've been gone,
I found out that I hate looking into oceans
because I keep thinking about how you just drowned your sorrows away,
and your final breath was just so easy.
(A part of me wants to hate you because you never said goodbye to me,
but I know that I'm never strong enough to ever hate you.)
All I have left of you is my burned photograph,
and I still feel like I'm drowning.
No Matter WhatNo Matter What5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I know you're scared,
But it's alright.
'Cause I'm right here,
To shed some light.
You pull me close,
Then push me away,
But no matter what,
I'll always stay.
You can break my heart,
Again and again,
And make me cry,
Until the end.
But for some strange reason,
I can't get enough.
I just can't walk away,
Even though it's so tough.
You've hurt me and scorned me,
And made it quite clear,
That no matter what happens,
You don't want me near.
Yet I keep coming back,
Trying "one last time",
But it's even more pointless,
Than this stupid rhyme.
No matter what,
I do or say,
There are 3 little words,
I cannot convey.
I told you before,
And you ran a mile.
I was hurt and humiliated,
And stopped for a while.
But now here we are,
Many years on.
I'm still trying to figure,
What might have gone wrong?
So I guess I will just,
Have to accept,
That I need to deal
With the pain and upset.
Being your friend,
Comes at such a high price.
But I'll still force a smile,
And be bubbly and nice.
I'll keep tellin

Within her garden roses bloom
beneath the cankered worms
a darker growth within her womb
will watch its sibling turn
It swells with heat, her lover's sin
the cankered worm that grows within
It swells with heat
It swells with heat
Its muscles strong; its blood so thin
A changeling child is evil fruit
to welcome to this world
its darkness burrowed in the roots
where hell itself lies curled
It rests and grows as time abates
And shackles her beneath its weight
It rests and grows
It rests and grows
And time delivers wretched fate
A mother's love will never know
the sting of cold regret
or how the world reaps what it sows
too harsh to ere forget.
She only knows her heavy heart
will tear the heavens wide apart
She only knows
She only knows
The ill bred blessing of the dark.

I will be your guardian angel
I will protect you for a million times
I will ease your pain
And guide you in the right direction
I will not let others hurt you
Your world will always be happy and peaceful
You will develop and prosper
You will watch over our children
And they will make you proud
I will save you from the horrors of this world
It is always good to feel safe
You will grow wise and graceful
You will achieve all your goals in life
I am sorry that I am not there with you
But I will always look down on you
I am your guardian angel
I was your first and only love who died in a car accident
We will always be linked together
A bond that death could not break
We will share our souls for eternity
Whenever you need help or support call on me
And I will be there to guide you
I will whisper to you in your dreams
Sleep peacefully my love
(Inspired by the song Guardian Angel by The Frozen Autumn)

Flowers on a mountain
Retreated in their petals
Protecting their core
Their real self
Till a point
That the flower starts to blossom
Like they were made to be
But then the chill of winter creeps in
Forcing the petals to rise again
To protect their true self
