Even Dead Men Walk

I see the corner coming ever closer.
New opportunities, new chances,
a hope for a brighter future.
Yet I feel nothing of it.

My heart was trashed and vanquished
from a toxic blood feud.
I am incompetent at what I do,
unable to discern the meaning of being me.

In the beginning, I had hope.
But none of it matters anymore.
Especially when the price of it
was the one I cherished.

You can't do anything right, they say.
You have no common sense, they say.
You don't have a human heart, they say.
Clearly, they were right all along.

No longer do I look to the future with hope.
I only look forward to the horrors that await.
I died a long time ago,
because I stopped caring.

It may feel like I can breath,
cry, laugh, scream, howl,
anything you can do.
But even dead men walk.

groupthink and gardens
we've grown so used to stepping on flower buds before they can bloom because they're a different color than everyone else's and different doesn't fall into the category of "good" or "acceptable." different doesn't fit here, so we try and try again to soak stems in food colored water and thick-coat paint on petals hoping that maybe our defects will sprout some sense and learn to conform and match the rest. we took seeds from other gardens and planted them in our own until our yards looked the exact same as theirs and then our flowers weren't a different color than everyone else's anymore and that scared me. i wanted deviation; i had no desire

Nightmare: The Only Cure
Nightmare: The Only Cure My insides burn- Like swallowing acid Reality slows down- Smiling is therapeutic - Health is a virtue / Strength is torture Alive again tomorrow / Enduring the horror It's excruciating To keep on breathing Every reflection Mirrors are left sickened Grinning back at myself You must be enjoying this hell Perfect possession / Muffled suffocation Heart is racing / Sight is darkening In these hallucinations My skin is melting Oh how I wish I was dreaming Of when I finally start recovering It's only hopeful thinking A cure for me is a delusion Quarantined tears / Reality's nightmare I am beyond repair / All were

Castles in the air
Even the fools daydream... That something could go on well, oh, for a single time they build castles in the air, daring to hope, dream to find a temporary haven of peace to escape to during the winter and dream of spring...

Thanks! :D This one I still get a very deep, weirdly passionate vibe from. I mean, I'm still proud of this one. And yeah, kinda has that Who Will Know vibe... *goes off to listen Who Will Know*
