that deserves poetry,
born out of an inability
to survive alone,
born from a necessity
to believe in a lie
I'll continue to whisper
in your ear each night.
"I'll protect you"...
A lie neither of us believe
and neither of us dispute
for fear of losing our only tether
to this decrepit existence
that we both fear so much...
this love isn't romantic
nor is it confrontational
its not comforting
nor is it disturbing,
It's merely there
sinking beside us
in the sea of life ,
that's gently drowning us,
we can almost breathe.
A Love I Can't EscapeFor you I batheA Love I Can't Escape in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
in horribly wonderful decadence
that envelops me
crushing and choking me
beneath my own ambiguity
I haven't the heart
to hold to the utter
which I've come to feel for you
and it fears its own inability
to encompass such disgusting purity.
I want you
more than I'm willing to understand
and more than I'm willing to accept
still call to me
with such horrifying allure
that I can't help but approach
the cliff which I'm sure
will be my downfall
however perhaps if I gained you
in the fall
I might not mind.

And I'm unsure why,
Maybe it's been too long,
Since I had a good cry.
With the things I'm going through,
You think I'd cry a lot,
But the stuff you think about me,
The truth it is not.
I know that this sucks,
But now it's off my chest,
But even now doubt I'll relax,
Even now I doubt I'll rest.
My mask is finally breaking,
They now notice it as well,
Yet somehow they don't notice,
That I think life's a living hell.
I know a lot of people,
That want me to die,
But to some of you guys,
Would you cry?
No, I don't want attention,
I'm fine on my own,
I don't need your sympathy,
Maybe I'm better off alone.
Gory DemiseHalf past the witching hours,Gory Demise in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I stay awake like guards in towers.
The mansion's quiet for some reason,
It almost seems like an act of treason.
My pillow soaked with salty tears,
My eyes bloodshot from all the years.
Colder and paler than the freshest of snow,
Calico eyes, in the darkness they glow.
Shuffling feet onto worm eaten boards,
My heart separated like a hospital ward.
Chills run up and down my spine,
My new home, yes, it's mine.
Left for dead,
Hanging to life,
By a skinny thread.
My hood is up,
So none can see,
The deadly beast,
Inside of me.
I quake in fear of what I've become,
My mind is dark and body numb.
I hold my pillow under my arm,
Though it won't keep me from any harm.
In this house you never know,
Who will stay and who will go.
Bloody hood upon my chest,
I go upstairs, for some rest.
I lay my blue hair upon my bed,
Hoping good thoughts will enter my head.
But with every good there is a bad,
And my mind soon turns to thoughts of sad.

ViolenceI hang my head,Violence in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
As I walk alone,
In this neighborhood,
I call my home.
I look through the mist,
My eyes under my hood,
I try to think of happiness,
And pretend that everything's good.
I'm surrounded by fun people,
Who get me up for some time,
But then after they go away,
My head goes into rhymes.
If I'm ever feeling down,
I think of the stories that I write,
Every day I'm not awake,
I can never rest at night.
Gore and blood is all I see,
My brother doesn't know,
I'm not the little girl I used to be,
He didn't want me to grow.
He's the reason I am who I am,
The reason I am so gone,
He's the one who made me so violent,
When I was as innocent as a fawn.

Who goes and says hi,
In fact if you know me,
You'll know I'm real shy.
I am the girl,
Who's always so pale,
I act like I'm strong,
When really I'm frail.
I am the girl,
That hides what she feels,
And my mind's always spinning,
Like clock clogs and wheels.
I am afraid,
Of what I can do,
I act like I'm tough,
But I shed tears too.
I guess I'm the girl,
Who hides away,
Who prefers the night,
Instead of the day.
I'm the kind of girl,
Who's so insecure,
I am so unsure.

But they can't hear,
My pain filled cry.
But how did I earn,
Such a fate?
I'm dying inside,
But they're unaware,
And if they know,
They'll laugh and not care.
Who cares if I die tomorrow?
Who will mourn me, I cannot say,
But all of my worst enemies,
Will hate me either way.
The cuts and scars,
Are never enough,
The torture came,
And it's too rough.
If I go somewhere,
The consider this goodbye,
For why should I keep living,
If I am living in a lie?
Happy PlaceHappy PlaceHappy Place in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
A happy place usually refers to a place where people go in their mind so they can feel happy. The little details for a happy place can be different for each person, but the common theme is that the creator of the happy place is usually in control of this place. Other times the happy place is created by a creator, but it is changed and twisted based off of events that happen around the person.
At the moment my Happy Place is a mountain overlooking a decaying city of Altrea surrounded by walls. The time is always sunset so that the sky looks like a battlefield of deep-blue with clouds of a fiery-orange and the salty breeze of a world long sealed outside. The city itself is littered with towers of broken glass and over grown plants.
Even after all of this time I can still sometimes see the city that was.
This happy place of mine has been with me from a young age. Every time there was an argument around me or I was just lonely, I would escape into this world to feel happ

“Thank you Penelope. Will you please turn on playlist 1 and prepare a shower for me.” Abby said getting out of bed to see the blinding light coming from the shades moving away like they do every morning. Her hand went to the glass of water already chilled to her liking thanks to the AI Penelope. She sipped her water as she look out into the metallic city below.

“Oh so you are saying that you had nothing to do with this act of war!” She yelled so loud that I thought the glass walls would crack, but it is not like I valued my hearing anyway. I would have tried to look at the glass screen on my desk but it was too far gone, the poor thing all it ever wanted was to serve.
“I do not know what you are talking about so please inform me of this act of war.” I said politely.
“Look at this.” She said in a hateful voice shoving the shattered glass screen in my face. I tried to take out the crystal core when she yelled “What are you doing?”

How had you wound up in this situation? It had started when a huge ship had docked in the local port.
Your town was small, but with a bustling, lively atmosphere. You had been minding your own business, just out on a few errands, when you saw them; a long line of people marching off the ship, surrounded by a curious crowd. They were a curious lot, wearing beautifully woven clothes in bright colors. As they passed, you could hear the rustling of silk. You stopped to stare like the rest.
It wasn't just the clothes that made them noticeable. They all had smooth, young faces. Their dark hair was tied back loosely. Unconsciously, your fingers began to comb through your own hair. Theirs was longer than yours.

I’m twisted and confused, tired of being me
On the surface I am strong, abrasively calm, and ready
But underneath it all I’m weak, wrong, and unsteady
I shudder at the wind; tell tale of death’s bringer
I feel the chill upon my spine; forever it seems to linger
Now is not the time for cleansing wounds of past battles
Worse is lurking just beyond the howling darkness of the shadows
There isn't much that I can do against an army borne of fear
Every nightmare, all my demons, they’re all assembled here
They’re everything that I’m ashamed to say is part of me
The ugly truth behind my eyes no one should ever see
And if I held my ground would it be too much to face?
Or should I just ignore what I know I can’t erase?

Knowing when it’s over I may lose my sanity
Embrace the mess I am and the storm inside of me
In the dark I have a chance to fight away my problems
To ignore them all away instead of trying to solve them
All I saw when I looked back was a mass of insecurity
Laying waste to who I am and ripping at the seam
Lowering my already non-existent self-esteem
And I couldn’t help admitting I’m a self-made failure
Walking a broken path as a second-hand savior
And it all adds up to nothing; me in a nutshell
Yanking on the chain that tethers me to hell…

I didn’t fall; I was caught by the lonely, crushing darkness
Of this I’m sure; it was there more than you ever were
I don’t know why the love I need
Is flowing in the blood I bleed
Yes, I’m confused and, yes, I’m a mess
Frustrations magnified by stress
I don’t know why I pushed so far
New cuts cover where the old ones are
My scars are scarred, my heart’s in shards
I’m breaking down like a house of cards
I fell already blind into decimating blackness

After I had met you-

And now I know what meaningful desires can do-

And then right back to testing my withdrawing patience
While I plunge back into my same old Hell called: vulnerability

So, now I keep my friends close to my heart:
They'll be there when it breaks.
