Literature
Recovering Addict
Even drugs fail a hold like this...
addiction of the mind kind,
tremors of a soul left writhing in it’s own darkness,
days seem weeks and everything is still,
hoping to never let it go,
hoping that it knows,
so it never departs,
leaving only misery.

Literature
Grief
Dragging my sadness around on the floor
Is it even possible to hurt any more?
I wake up and wonder what the hell for?
Just to ponder where you'd be?
Lost in the memory.
I've forgotten your laugh, but not your smile
The humour that left me doubled over, tears staining my cheeks, but they're not from laughter anymore.

Literature
The Sea of Life
The sea of life has ebb and flow
With rhythmic waves that come and go;
Sometimes rough but often calm
We'll weather the storm to avoid all harm
If we learn to swim 'til sun goes down
We'll stay afloat and never drown

Literature
Ethereal
A particle in space,
winking in and out of existence.
A thought,
disappearing as soon as it begins.
A supernova,
exploding and imploding.
A Luna moth,
newly born and dying.
An ephemeral moment,
with no beginning or end.
Ethereal love,
wrapped inside a mortal coil.

Literature
white china
Sunflowers grow up from within your lungs into your esophagus and choke you
When blooming in the fall
Yet you grinned all the same pressing the needle under my skin
Ink swelling between flesh layers, sloppily imprinting your name too close
To my humerus and forearm.
Poppy seeds flooded your arteries and derailed you with shakes
When their numbers dwindled
Almost as if instinct you became nails with rancid eyes
I wonder who would love you, if they knew the varmint sewn under your lacey
Skin. Would they still hold you when you sweat and bleed, thrashing in defense
Moonflowers open through your irises and glow through early morning chills
Blooming when the only source of light dies
Yet you hummed all the same flicking the lighter alive under metallic curves
Bubbles rising between lemon juice and powder, briskly sucked through
A needle and tube.
Orchids arch around your spine slowly pierce their shoots through your dermis
White blossoms tainted with blood
Almost as if living in denial you

Literature
questions
Sometimes I tend to become so self-aware
That I have those questions lingering there.
I wonder what it would be like to be someone else
What it would be like to be anyone but myself
Maybe I could feel, and be a little bit more free
To feel like I don't have to be anyone but me
I wonder what it would be like to live elsewhere
To live in space, floating up in the lack of air
If I were an alien, would I attempt to seek out
Humans, like people like to theorize about?
I wonder what it would be like if I weren't real
To have never been born, to never get to feel
I could be a floating soul in the middle of nowhere
There would be nothing at for me to stare.

Literature
cannibals
We are cannibals.
Feeding on one another's blood
Claiming victory, rather than
Cannibalism. Just that.
We call on one another
To follow the same steps
But I refuse to do so.
I hear war calling my name
In many different voices
But I try to shake them off
I will not waver at all.
I don't want to consume blood
They do say after all, you are
What you eat, do they not?
One lost drop of innocent blood
Is a loss of a whole universe
Why would I ever wish to
Partake in something like that?
What pleasure do we find
In the taste of others' blood?
Where's the sweetness in that?
Doesn't it taste oh so dirty
In their greedy, salivating mouths?
Doesn't it taste like immorality?
Are they really that unashamed?

Wonderful. Suicide is a rather common subject among us poets but you managed to write about it in an original and fresh way. The first ...

GhostOfTheEmptyGrave's Profile Picture
GhostOfTheEmptyGrave
Diogo
Portugal
Just an invisible man, writing his thoughts and fighting a battle in vain aganist life itself. Lost friends, broken hearts, bullying, a (relatively) messed up family life and overall anti-social tendencies led me to that. And love is a strange concept to me... At least DeviantArt is both an escape and a way to connect to others. Where would I be without it?...

Anyway, enjoy my poems, pictures and all the other stuff. I must warn you, most of my poetry tends to be quite dark and sometimes depressing. I do some photography too.

One more thing: there's no need to thank me for every fave, llama or whatever, OK?

Oh, and I don't mind poetry requests. For free. Come on, inspire me :)

Life

And yet
It's the longest thing
We ever do
I just cut off all ties I had with a good friend of mine on impulse. Really, all ties. Deleted, just like that. Without even waiting for a reaction. Why? Because I couldn't take it anymore. That relationship was but a chore without any pleasure. And I don't even feel bad about that. I realized I don't care for that person anymore. A person not long ago I held dear. Someone very close and special to me, someone I genuinely cared about with all my heart and soul.
Am I a bad person? Am I a cold heartless mess? What have I done and why do I care so little about it?

Like the title says, I'm a disgrace...
