I'm Sorry (dedicated to Song-Dulcet)
I make you laugh
I make you cry
I make you weird
I make you high
I make you angry
I make you sad
I make you guilty
I make you bad
I make you upset
And myself feel worse
Sometimes I wonder
If I'm just a curse
I know this poem
It makes no sense
Doesn't even have
But I tried my best
To show you how
Important you are
To me right now
And deep inside
We don't have to pretend
'Cuz our friendship is strong
Until the end.

I see the sunlight pour through the window,
And cast the many shadows astray.
I see the snow fall from the sky lifelessly,
Like rose petals in decay.
I hear the melodies of many a bird song,
That cover the land as they fly free.
I hear the papery whisper of wind nearby,
And wonder if you'll ever return to me.
I feel the warmth of heat on my skin,
Emanating from the incandescent sun.
I feel the trickle of tears on my cheek,
Am reminded of you, second to none.
I smell the essence of sugar and spice,
And choke on the tears I am forced to cry.
I smell the fragrance of cinnamon and vanilla,
Block the image of you saying goodbye.

Imagination is a scary thing. It has the ability to trigger our strongest emotions to strike fear into our hearts, and pain into our minds. It is the worst enemy we have ever come to know; and nobody who walks on this Earth has successfully tamed it. For it controls us not the other way around.
"Mariah!" Somebody calls from below me. I keep my bow and arrow at hand even if this person knows my name, I know not whether I can trust them. I look down from the branch I am seated on. A boy with black hair stares up at me. "Mariah, where have you been?" He asks as I jump down from the tree.

You may be gone so that I can't see you, but it doesn't mean I can't tell you're there. I know you're there. It's been so long, but that means nothing to me. Do you honestly think I could ever forget you? After all that we've been through? All of the pain, all of the fury, and all of the love that we shared? I know it all became too much for you But I didn't realize it was unbearable.
I wish you would've told me. I wish you had shared with me what you were going through so that I could somehow help, and comfort you. I wish you didn't keep yourself a secret from me. But it was what was to be expected, wasn't it?

I know I say things to upset you.
But I hope you know
I never want to lose you.

I know you used to loathe me.
I know you used to mean it.
I know you used to wish I was dead.
But even though I'm aware of that
I never want to lose you.

I've never tried to write poetry,
I've always been a fail.
I've never tried to express emotion,
I've never shared my tale.
I've never tried to share my secrets,
I've always been too scared.
I've never tried to get attention,
I've realized no one cared.
I've never tried to be unnoticed,
I've been forgotten anyway.
I've never tried to be annoying,
I've been rejected every day.
What do you see?When you look into my eyesWhat do you see?7 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
What do you see?
When you speak my name
When you pull me close
Are you really that broken?
So you no longer feel the love I give
The affection I show
Or the hope my eyes try to be
Come over here now
Tell me your truth
Show me those tears
And I'll tell you my truth
Show you my fears
I'll tell you about a girl
A girl who found hope in the most hopeless boy
Let me wipe the dripping sorrow of your cheeks
as I figure out what you need right now
Let me be the first person ever to be there for you
I'll tell you this story,
I'm sure you will appreciate it
the girl is cute and boy so strong

Each stroke carried away with grace.
How the colours spread across the canvas.
Overflowed with severe hatred.
The emotions show like stars Do night.
With love not in sight.
He who writes with Unsensible love.
The letters written so dear.
How each word flows with pain.
Overcoming of what is unknown.
The pain spreads out so fast.
He whoms photographs wash up the blood.
The image shown so clear.
With simplicity so complicated.
Like forbidden sights hit on eyes.
What is made with just a snap.
The 1000 words so strong.
Us who feel like only burdens.
Our art can be our vent.
What shan't be seen has now been showed.
What words not say has now been heard.
What lies underneath has now been atop.
Like the things we will never kno

Love is so warm when it's new,
When it's full of touching, and kissing.
After time, love fades,
And you wind up with a cold bed.
Everything you see
Reminds you of that once special person.
How do broken hearts mend when it's
Been shattered so small?
If I try to fix my shattered heart,
I prick my fingers from the
Sharp edges of my heart.
I try many times to mend it,
But once I think its fixed
Someone decides to shatter it more.
Why do I have to sleep alone tonight?
I need you back, I can't sleep without
Your warm body beside mine.
Come back my love...

Hope. They had always told me, "Lose your hope, Eoin, and your tears will cease."
For years, I believed them. For years, the tears did stop. Suppressing all feeling of hope and all thoughts of escape, I had faded into nothingness to make the life I lived bearable. I became the shallow husk that was required to perform my duties by removing all the life that was left within me.
If you had told me, the me that I had been, that it would all change after just one evening, I would've laughed a laugh so cynical that you could visibly see it seeping passed my lips. I would've offered you a bitter kiss so deep that you would taste it for years.

Sleep, celestial plain.
Trapped. She wakes up in a place she doesn't know. A single lightbulb hanging from a taut wire swings above her, the high pitched wails of its movement filling her ears. She blinks a couple of times, her mascara strangely moist. Her face hurts, as though it is covered in bruises. It also feels as though it is being stretched - undoubtedly, her make-up has smeared across her cheeks, once wet from her tears but now dry.Trapped.6 months ago in Settings More Like This

A crimson sky stretched over and across the land, flecked with a cluster of pallid clouds that drifted sadly to the horizon and into oblivion. The sun descended westerly in a languid fashion, casting warm rays on the fields and illuminating the darkest caverns in the final hours of the day. The deep red faded into a shade of black, in a similar pattern to paper being creased from the corner inwards, like an invisible chariot was soaring across the open and dragging along a velvety blanket of night that enveloped the world around in a thick fog of darkness.

For the things that I have done.
I don't want to see my consequences
To you, whose heart is innocent.
I close my eyes,
When tears are about to fall.
I just hide my weeping face,
From your eyes filled with pain.
I want to run away,
But I can't leave you alone like that.
You won't even blame me,
Despite the fact that it's my fault.
You carried all my sufferings.
My judgement became yours.
Even though, I hated myself for this,
You still love me and carry on.
Now I learned the lesson,
Although it seems too late.
If I could just prevent what's happening

But now it's too late,
The damage is done.
I took all the hate.
I want to go back to one.
Do I have to go away
Just because of one mistake?
Why couldn't it stay?
Was so much at stake?
I'm tired of pretending
There's no use of it now.
Is this really the ending?
Guess I regret it somehow.

This is his prayer, his only friend.
Lost in delusions he still finds truth
but it's his heart he can never reboot.
His nightmare isn't worth living for.
Blinded by his own stupidity
nevertheless reminded for infinity
that all he had was made to lose.
No matter what he finds, he can never choose.
Strange whispers won't feed his core.

their greedy tongues wrapping themselves around the sounds

That was long before they started spitting my True Name,
long before doubts began tugging at their hearts , ever so gently,
while their fears pushed me to the altar
There was a time when I could ride moonbeams
and its silver sparkling light would ignite my skin, setting my soul ablaze
My feet knew the steps to the sacred dances of our foremothers
and my toes could draw pearly patterns in the midnight green grass of the

Like a cold cavernous cave

Like molten molasses marching through my veins,

Even though I knew... it wouldn't last.
The monster inside of me came out to play
Using a scarlet river to wash my dreams away
It salivated at the delicious, red meal -
All the happiness that it could easily steal
Using its claws, ripping it shred by shred
Stuffing it down its throat, it maliciously fed
And each shred it ripped, it ripped my soul
I fed and fed until it took its toll
I was sucked dry of my wishes and hopes
After the monster ate, it hung me with ropes
I dangled from the ceiling, tears delicately shed
My voice croaked and I plead and plead
A monster I created that killed all I kn
