in this desolate place
that we call
I feel that
with no way out,
Without a future,
without a purpose,
my yearning soul...
As the darkness
As the numbness

I Won't Let GoWhat happened to you?I Won't Let Go6 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Your hollow eyes, sunken into your head.
Your pale skin, stretched over your brittle bones.
Your raven hair, falling in strands into your jet black eyes.
Your gangly arms and your long, spindly fingers grasping for a sense of reality.
But what scared me the most were your scars.
Long, thin scars ran down your face, arms, and legs like veins
One scar for every time you made a mistake.
One scar for every time your heart shattered.
It made you look...inhuman.
Your eyes were almost like that of a madman's.
They glinted with pain, sorrow, and regret.
Remember when your eyes used to be a brilliant blue?
As I recall, they were a beautiful shade, like the sea; crystal clear.
Now, your eyes were fogged.
They became dull orbs of lifelessness.
You told me it was because of the pain.
I wanted to help you, but you refused.
'Best if I'm left alone,' you'd say sadly.
You barely even talked now.
I almost wonder what's in that brain of yours.
What could've happened

Talk to me.
Tell me what shattered your heart inside.
Your heart is beating, yet, you're not alive.
You're hearing, yet, you're not listening.
You've become a black shadow.
I can see the demons in your eyes.
Your eyes have glazed over.
Your life is coming to an end.
But yet, you're still healthy, still alive.
You smile to hide your pain.
But you're slowly dying inside.
You keep saying 'I'm fine', when I know you're not.
You tell me 'it's just a phase. Don't worry'
But I've never worried so much before.
You're like a leaf
Your beauty slowly withering away, unbeknownst to everyone around you.
Soon, you're going to fall from the tree, and hit the ground.
People will walk over you, ignoring how much pain they've caused your heart.
But hold on.
It gets better, I promise.
Your heart will beat once again.
I'm hoping for a sign of life.
I'm watching for those eyes to fill with joy, like they used to be.
I beg you with all my heart.
New GrowthSometimes I wonder if humanity is capable of new growth?New Growth7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
How come history keeps on repeating itself, restlessly, over and over again?
Have we learned nothing of suffering?
Of whole generations condemned to the simple act of dying?
Genocide is still at large and we act as if it ended with the fall of the Nazis.
But then, we ignore the existence of the Neo Nazis.
Blindfolded we are by the media and the government
who feed us the same empty promises.
Each holding the same flavor as the last...
And my generation, drowning in the apathy of facebook and twitter...
Apathy of themselves, the lost generation.
Did the passion of the 60s wear inspiration down?
How come we have allowed the fall of two giants scare us back to our little holes?
“I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together”

Smells of winter.
Foggy trees, hidden flowers, fleeting scenery, everything blurs
The maze of my brain.
Shivering as if I was drunk with grief
Human wreck stares at me, hollow gaze
My past lives are hung on the wall of oblivion
Reborn from grief.
Eternal darkness reign above me, on this oppressive night
Snows of coal.
The image of your grave stuck in my head
As dead as you.
.I sent you a letter..7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
But as I whispered, each word sounded hallow.
I knew, just like you, no one would listen.
Just like the sea, the silence consumed you.
It anchored your body and tried in vain, to hide you.
You spoke as the sea filled your lungs,
destroyed by Oxygen's affair you broke.
I sent you a letter.
One filled with so much regret.
Promises and dates never made.
A heart that will not rest.
I sent you a letter.
Right when you took your leave.
Because I'm drowning in this flirtatious sea,
please, love don't be mad at me.

The final resting place
in which unresolved matters
of conflicting emotions
Lie h i d d e n . in the grave
in which they were buried under.
So hard I’ve strived.
to hide the bitterness

I’ve invested plenty.
to cover up the s t a i n s;
bleach them away…
Yet they resurface again.
making themselves more familiar

Pushing their way back.

my pain gnawing at my soul,
feasting away on the c r u m b s

I cannot be saved.

I wanted to be
in the ash
that was scattered
across your cemetary
when the devil came
and smoked a cigarette
over your tomb
and I watched
it was like silk
in the moonlight
because I chose the perfect time
and I knew
that you were
lying through your teeth
every day that you
pretended as if you knew
what your purpose was
so here I stand
and I left
watching as the cigarette ashes
were sucked up by a

like you thought it was
and I'll keep this scene playing in my head

To the sound of her parents pointless fight
And clinging tightly to her tear soaked pillow
She goes to school most every day
Wishing she could run away
From all those who torture her
For not being ‘cool’
Her mother, she just plain ignores her
Her father’s never even there
Who would notice if she were gone?
Who would even care?
She just wants to make it quick
To take this razor as her friend
And feel its tender loving kiss
Pressed against her paper skin
She just wants to make it stop
The feeling lonely, sad and hated
She holds the blade up to eye level
I don’t know how long she waited
She presses hard against her skin
And lines of ink bleed from the pen
The blade, it rests there on her knee
On her arm she wrote

Love is learning to accept and not preach
Love isn't falling asleep in his arms
Love is reassuring all qualms
Love isn't watching the sunset at dusk
Love is knowing she smells of musk
Love isn't buying her flowers each day
Love is saying the things hard to say
Love isn't writing a cheesy love song
Love is accepting that sometimes you're wrong
Love isn't easy and sometimes you're scarred
Love is a battle and it can be hard
Love isn't always the things you'd expect
Love is trying not to be circumspect
Love can be found for all walks of life
Love is not just for husband and wife
Love can be seen between friend and friend
Love is a treasure that lasts to the end
Love is as difficult as you make it be
Love is for you and love is for me

The void in your chest
Where you told me your heart
Used to be
I hope it flows from your ears
Into your veins
Through your heart
To your brain and around again
Until your very footsteps
Pounding out the pavement
Seem to speak of its rhythm
I hope you tap out the rat tat ta
Of it's addictive beat
While you smoke in the streets
And that in the shapes you make
You see something that makes you happy
I hope all this happens
Because you once told me
Music always makes you happy
And I'm so sorry that I can't do that anymore.

Trauma at dawn,
This is all so wrong.
Nothing was there,
Just the cold air,
There you stare,
With the huge chair.
You never let me free,
To run at the big tree,
But you had other plans,
With my bloody hands.
Days turned into weeks,
Losing color within my cheeks,
The floor creaks,
With every pressure in my feet.
There lays the remains,
Of my veins,
There lays the chains,
For his gains.
