No FearA never ceasing flow of bloodNo Fear2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Blood that covers hands so, so easily..
Lights flicker on,
The stark fluorescence
Almost making skin glow
Tears stream down
And a hand moves to wipe them away
Crimson on white
Like a patient destined for a mental health facility
Like a killer..
Guilt and fear run rampant
Pain and depression sink their claws in,
Gnawing at the mind like wildcats
Can't stop any of it
Can't stop staring into the mirror
Not recognizing the face reflected back
As if staring long enough will make one believe
That their soul is on the other side
That simple stark contrast
The sudden feeling of being alone
Tears at the mind....
Pulls the gaze away from the mirror,
Back to the bloodstained hands
Kill the lights
Head back against the wall
Just to wait for it all to end...
No more fear
Just destined for the darkness....
Close the eyes one last time,
There will be nothing
But sleepless nights
From here to eternity......
Face the demons with a

Desperation RowHe passes below on the street,Desperation Row3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Nothing to slick off the pouring rain
Soaked t-shirt clinging to his torso
Bright eyes that peer out at the world
But they are bright only in color
There is a deep, latent sadness there that shone through
If ones eyes are the windows to the soul
Then his would be the windows of an old abandoned building
Broken, shattered, grimey
Not worth looking through
Unless you knew what you were looking for
I'm twenty stories up
Watching as his desperation drives him further
He's alone, though the street has it's fair share of stranglers
But they all pass in the opposite direction
Like ghosts, all covered in black with trenchcoats on
Hoods pulled up to shade the faces from view
He pauses in the roadway
Head turned up just as soon as I'm about to step off the edge
Eyes meeting mine at the same time I pause to think
Think about why I want to step off the edge of this iron balconey railing
About why I want to force myself from the wrought barrier

Fly fly butterfly,
On the winds of change into the sky,
Fly fly butterfly
Quickly now before you die.
Cinderella walked on broken glass
Sleeping Beauty let a lifetime pass
Belle fell in love with a beast
Ariel fell for the land close east
It's all about the laughter and tears
Love's about facing your greatest fears
Hold me in your arms at night
Tell me it'll be alright
Fight away these fears
Kiss away the tears
Just hold me in your arms tonight
Please tell me it'll be alright

When you talk to her, do you speak of me?
When you tell her stories, do you talk about me?
When you hear her voice, do you hear me?
When you hear her laugh, do you hear my voice?
When you see her smile, do you hear my laugh?
When you see her smile, do you think of me?

When she can't see you, do you see me there?

When you feel lonely, do you wish I'd come home?
When I tell you how I feel, do you feeel lonely?
When you push me away, do you know how I feel?
When I say "I love you," do you wish I'd push you away?
When I lie awake at night, wondering if you've said it to her, do you feel any remorse?
When I tell you my feelings don't matter, do you care anymore?
When I don't care about my life anymore, do you wish that I was your girl?
When I cry and keep my emotions to myself, do you miss the way things we

The way your fingers fit between mine.
The way your hand fits into the curve of my hip.
The way my head fits into the hollow of your neck.
The way my body fits alongside yours.
The way you make me smile at night.
The references you make all day.
The way your arms fit around my torso.
The way your voice cuts through my dreams.
You're the other half of my puzzle
A mixed up bunch of colors, emotions, and thoughts.
A jumble of pieces.
Yes, Sometimes it Hurts. I have scoliosis. Saying it now, it just seems like another part of me, like "I have brown hair", or "I wear glasses." It doesn't even faze me. I've only known I've had it for about two years, and in that time span, my condition has quite honestly snowballed.Yes, Sometimes it Hurts.4 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
When my doctor first told me, I didn't believe it. Scoliosis was some weird thing my mom had, not me. Every year they checked me, and every year they said I was fine, that there was nothing wrong. After a couple of minutes, I decided I didn't care. It was only a little curve in my back, a little imperfection. It didn't seem like a big deal. I remember not really knowing what everyone was worried about. All I really knew was that there was something wrong with my back, something messed up in my spine. I told my friends, laughingly, that there was yet another thing wrong with me. I treated it like the whole thing was a huge joke.
