I sleep with with three blankets to ease the thoughts in my head.
The tiny light on my dresser keeps them at bay,
Anything to keep those damned monsters away.
You said it was perfectly fine,
That the nightlight didn't bother you since it eases my mind.
I smiled, thinking that was sweet,
Sweet that you could put up with me.
I'm scared of the monsters that have consumed my brain,
Disorders have affected more than me and become a pain.
I'm so damn selfish and I'm so fucking sorry,
I never meant to make you unhappy.
You said you got it,
Sometimes it's something people get.
I smiled again, so glad,
That my issues didn't make you mad.
Now I'm just scared of the monster that I've become,
Far worse than the hellish beasts in my nightmares,
Trumping the diseases in my head.
Bright red and screaming, I'm so horrible to imagine.
You said I didn't act like I loved you,
You said I made you cry,
You said I make you feel like shit constantly,
And I am so damn
Forgotten BeautyA city burns to ruin as smoke blackens out the sky.More Like This
Soot falls upon a garden where its fragile flowers die.
A single flower stands here covered in a shroud of dust.
Was once a subtle beauty, but now stricken of its lust.
It’s yearning for the sunlight as it slowly fades away.
Wrapped up in total darkness stretching outward for the day.
It’s begging for clean water but its god withholds the rain.
Skies sending no salvation down to wash away the pain.
It’s hoping for the wind yet it may offer only death
The flames encroaching closer as they feed upon its breath
Will beauty ever return where the fire scorched the ground;
Or will the flowers be forgot and new life never found?

Take dim lit room and darkest corners
Find a child huddled there, cradled tight in his despair
Silent here for not his murmurs,
murmuring out a prayer
He asks the keeper keep to keeping
While all his guardians tucked in sleeping
Ignorant of the shadows creeping
Slow across the hallway floor, standing now outside his door
Somewhere near the sound of breathing,
breaths too heavy to ignore
Then just outside there raised a howl
A distant boom and monstrous growl
Envisions he a ghostly cowl
Afloat across the yard in prowl
Come to steal his soul away, curtains hold the fiend at bay
With scrapes across the window scowls,
scowling out in its dismay
The shutters joined the fray with flapping
Hard against the walls their rapping
While all around began a tapping
With no relent unceasing clapping
the pitter-patter's endless lapping
Solace to the boy then came, raptured from this fearful bane
Slowly drifts his mind towards napping,
napping through a night of rain
