She admires the damage in others
Her twisted form of jealousy.
The breaking of a heart
And the touch of a razor blade
The only true pain she has ever known.
Her heart reaches for broken souls
Taking them into her cold embrace
To amend for her sick envy...
Her guilt for being ordinary
Knows no bounds.
As she clings to injured hands
Wishing to heal them
Wanting to be like them.
Her reason for which
Is still Unknown.

Sing me a love song
Sing me to sleep
Sing until reality
is better than my dreams
Sing to me quietly
a tender whisper in my ear
Sing a song with meaning
that I will forever hold dear
Sing to me fondly
say you love me with song
Sing to me passionately
it's been far too long
Sing to me bravely
I don't care how you sound
Sing to me softly
and watch my heart pound
Now sing to me darling
Sing with love
Sing until I feel as beautiful
as the brilliant stars above.

"I have something for you love." She whispered.
She cupped her hands beneath her breast and stared down at them peacefully.
Before he could grow curious, a brilliant scarlet rose appeared and began to slowly bloom beneath her fingers, it's silky petals a perfect contrast to the thorns that pricked her delicate and scarred fingertips.
A small drop of blood flowed from the tip of her finger to gently land on one of the flower petals, the color of her blood meeting the rose and blending instantly.
She lifted it to her nose to inhale the exquisite aroma.
She smiled before presenting it to her lover standing

that only you know of,
with heroes and magic unknown.
For on your face is written,
a thousand fairy tales, and
songs of mermaids lone.
Your voice rings out, like
the church bells in morning.
Clear and resonant, like
salvation songs in offering.
In your eyes I can catch, a
glimpse of the clear April sky.
They unshackle my soul,
unbound and free to fly.
The blade that you bear,
slays demons of the deep.
Slashing through my darkness,
conquering vices that sleep.
I know you so well, by
the fragrance of your skin;
That lingers on, even in
the absence of your being.
Who are you?

I try to articulate that one syllable,

You've never needed to dress your words-
dip them in ink or paint them in poetry

I have drowned so many times

You shone bright amongst the darkness
My dying star
Your damaged soul fueling my infatuation.
The memories beneath those eyelids
Burned at your soul
Though you didn't see fit to trust me with them.
With the freezing of your heart
And the flicker of your wrist,
You cast me aside.
Brooding on your own
Plunging us back into the blackest of nights.
But through the darkness
You still saw the moon
A beacon of hope on the bleak horizon.
And as I sat amongst the darkness
Bathed in the lunar eclipse
I realized there was no hope for a dying star.

But when I tried to take its hand,
It turned into dust,

In a shadow I've put again my trust?
Falling into hollow,
I've lost my soul,
I got no more a light to follow.
Screaming out my lungs for help,
But there's nobody around to hear,
There's nobody to feel my fear,
Just a cyan sight,
That keeps shining in the dark.

There must be something I can say
Cause I hate just watching you
When I know the pain you're going through
You're not alone; I've been where you are
Contemplating where I'll place my next scar
Hiding razor kisses underneath long sleeves
It doesn't make it better; nothing is achieved
All you'll earn are the scars you've got and
The lesson learned is the lesson forgotten
You feel like no one's there, no one cares what you do
Let me put it to you straight: That is never true
I was shunned, pushed away many times before
Then I realized it was I who had closed the door

Upon banks of obsidian I gaze

Dark'n dreary the river's sorrow, as shadows
spill from mine eyes unto gardens of ebony
