I want to feel his hands around my throat
Pressing me down until I finally choke
Prove to me that I don't need the air I breathe
Prove to me that all I really need is you to hold me
I want to feel his hands cutting off my air supply
Preventing me from telling even more lies
Prove to me that I don't need my voice to speak
Prove to me that you don't really even need me
I want to feel his hands strangling me
Protecting me from the toxins we all need
Prove to me that you can help me escape the idiocy
Prove to me that I can live somewhere above reality
I want to feel his hands around my throat
Pressing me down until I finally cease to choke

yes, you are a whore.
we're all fucking whores, whether or not we know it. karma sells us like the cheap sluts we've proven ourselves to be. we can lie and make believe it's for passion, it's for love, but fuck do we live in denial. we're all tramps for what, some cheap, four lettered word? we do it because we love him, we love her; we love the tight, white lines drawn out for us. and we all say we're jealous of birds because they can kiss the sky but really, anyone can fly high enough to fuck the stars if they really wanted to. but no, you're clean you're pure you don't fuck with people like me, you don't fuck with shit like drugs and good. i'm proud of you. i

i want to sleep
Kiss me to sleep And bury me in the ocean Away from this tragic world Where I can dream forever I'm ready to go back home Above the dark rain clouds And beyond the yellow stars To finally find my peace again

His Massacre, Her Love
The sharp blade lacerated the flesh with pristine accuracy. A thick, crimson liquid oozed from the wound and ran down the pale skin. Though brought upon by rage and madness, the killer still managed to carve with an admirable delicateness. Again, he slashed. Over and over he slid the knife deep into the victims' body. A smile plainly splayed on his face. Blood flew, covering his handsome features with dripping rubies. In the process of his artwork, the knife caught his own skin, spilling more red over the white canvases squirming beneath him. He paused, just for a moment, and laughed loudly. A laugh that started from deep within, shaking his

This could either be a joke or a bit more of my soul than I should reveal to anyone. xD

Prove to me that I don't need the air I breathe

a potent, revealing demand.

Revealing of what, I wonder...

revealing of some powerful inner compulsions, important features of your self image, and perhaps commentary on your deeply held feelings about relationships and what you really want out of them. what specifically about those things do they reveal? that is probably a private conversation.

but, i do think you have a good muse here from which to really build some quality poetic expression.
Muzica-chan's avatar
I don't know about all of that, but it is certainly possible. At the moment, I don't understand anything about myself. I am trying to write what I feel.

My muse fled with this piece, but I am sure she would appreciate that. :)
