(I really should be in bed, but scrolling lead to more scrolling. Therefore, some of these I just connected with a sleepy mind, so perhaps it won't make sense to all.)

I put together a couple of pieces for the way the talented artists documented the rougher sides of humanity beautifully in jagged, sparkling pieces that made me want to swallow my pen (and words) whole.

My shadows and I by iNeedChemicalX :thumb440008895: The secrets we keep by manuelestheim The Exception, Not The RuleJust let you go.  Cornucopia, meadowlark.  
Hummingbird,
just let me die.

I'd like to explain,
to eradicate,
abolish
and we are excess,
my dear Greyson;
the inception
of waste.
_
He stutters through
straight tequila
and ego.  
Blurred butterscotch eyes,
scalding alcohol,
delicious pride.
_
And to ignore the capacity,
sheer magnetism;
the pull of
incapacitated integrity.

I love(d) you.
Your Promises by reylia  scapegallows and metacarpalsi was cracking collar bones,
splitting through my spine &
oh - i was divinity, a demigod
to paint my knuckles red before
my lips were blue.
i'd wanted to be wayworn;
i'd wanted to be catatonia
& comorbidity but
i knocked my molars loose
on my right metacarpals,
spat out yellowed teeth
like headsmen lop the necks
off sanctities
states of matter by m-lucia So, I lied.I am a poet.
At least,
that's what my
skin tells me when
I bleed.
I'm slowly melting into
bed sheets not worth
lying in twice.
Half sick of shadows,
I think I've lost my mind.
My thoughts are s p i n n i n g
and my bones are shaking.  
But I keep repeating re-peating
repeating your name like a mantra.  
All I want to do is sleep.
But you see,
I bleed more than red
and there is this ink pen
digging through my skin.

Your work is worth more, but this is all I could do with my nobody status :giggle:. but know your work has a home in me!
Have a lovely day, lovely. May the sun shine warmer than yesterday.
