This clock never seemed so alive
The foolish openness of my youth and strings of regret have rendered me scared to open my heart. It often opens part-way, it’s jagged-glass doors open an inch or two, so that you can feel some of the warmth, but not open enough that the fractured pieces fall in a heap at your feet.
Shards of cold and broken heart pulsate with my heartbeat, only a fraction of a second behind. They need to escape, be acknowledged and accepted, but by the time my arms feel strong enough to prise the doors open, I find that I am standing alone and the weak-stomached people that I thought wanted in had left as quickly as they had come. I push, you know. They push to get in and I push back with a force greater than their own.
I pull the doors open a little more and become afraid, disorientated or cross with the magnitude of the task. I push people away so that I don’t have to try. I don’t have to let them see the broken bits. They don’t have to hear the slower bits or feel the weight

Meh
I have lost my mind; My thoughts squirm like a finger burrowing and twisting into the base of my skull. disrupting my perception until even a single word strains to makes sense, a jagged fingernail pressing deeper and deeper until the knots in my capillaries cease resisting and finally come undone. Your words - a single bullet pressing against the coolness of my temple. I believe and yet I'm firing back insecurities in machine-gun rounds. I'd be lying if I said I thrived off happiness, I thrive off the devil-water slinking through my coal-veins. And the thought of anything else is just too much to bear.
I'm lost
I have lost my strength; My heart lacks the fight needed to maintain - a faltering life-supply that screams your name in missed beats and erratic stomps. Nothing but a dead, black machine that has tired of clutching wavering hopes and tired of chasing the blood that is swelling my veins, pooling my limbs, catching my throat. Blood that is seeping from every cell and charting ne

don't ask me then.
you thought you were carving your hate on the ground around me when in fact you carved a platform that's left me far from your reach. you're claws can't scratch the sides and, until your voice rings sincere, your questions will be far too small to hear. so wait,
wait until you're willing to re-read the weathered love notes that have settled within your breast pocket, or perhaps until you consider them a separate entity instead of an added extremity. wait until your heart-twisting attachment has escaped your nagging grasp like sand through your fingers and you've hit that new all-time low, wait and find me then.
wait until you feel like your truths fall faster than lies, when every word rolls freely rather than sizzling like popping candy on the plains of your tongue - burning new un-fillable holes into the walls of your mouth or searing your lips like acid kisses. when you realize that there are other ways to live and you're not the only one that's carried the world on your shoulders,

all of our days
your skin radiates everything that is good about me,
but dear, i still have my days.
the days where im biting at nothing, at air, just because i'm scared and the sound of the ocean really doesn't seem that far away. i've got hopes and dreams but what use are they if they're written onto sand just waiting for the next days tide to come in.
we're toying with papaya when we should be chiseling stone.
there are the days that don't come. the days that are darker than the shadows in our faces. even when it's light, well, no amount of bleach could fix it. i'm fighting for ways to live when in actuality i'm wearing myself down. we're death's paradox but are we even living? sometimes i think that i could gain life without you but crippling scenarios remind me that i'm swimming in your marrow and you're the only reason that i still stand.
there are days that i feel as though i could dive from a cliff and not worry, because you're always there to place me on my feet. the family tag has a butterfl

You'll be waiting
"Where are you going Daddy?"
"Out"
"When are you coming back?"
"I'm not"
You left with a fresh start in your red leather suitcase and I was left living with accelerated years.
I was left living a life where I am nothing but a painted-on smile, feigning a prism of extended  warmth for those that I meet.
I live with constant radio static snapping through my synapses and glacial pangs biting through my marrow.
There are days when I don't even notice I am bleeding, from within, or out, neither make a difference when pain is just pain and I've spent a life-time cultivating an immune response for it.
So many years have passed and it is only as I'm headed in your direction that I can stop the ache in my transient feet. Every muscle fibre in my body has been straining to take me to you, but laws weaved into my own fingerprints made me forget, until my strengths were making me irrevocably weak.
You left with me so much anger. Anger that I had tamed under lock and
