You see that girl staring into space? If you were to ask her what’s wrong, she would say nothing, when in reality it’s everything. She’s sitting there wondering what she did wrong, what she would have done differently, how she would have changed it if she had the chance. And if she had the chance to go back and do it over again, would it end with the same result? That’s why she stares.

Because you’re here. I think you already made your choice. But if it helps, I’ll say it. Stop seeing him. Then you & I can get closer. Close enough to spend the rest of our lives together. I knew I had you the day I met you. — Because I Said So

The poetic scandal

Everyone assumes poetry
Is all line work

Sprawled across the screen
For you to

In pale moonlight

Whispered to
In the dead of night

Only some can grasp the
Of poetry
An ocean running

Most will never feel
The fire
In these words
On a cold
Winters day

To many fight
Fake it all away

When these words
Escape my lips
Outlines in
With finger tips

Digging scratches
With words like daggers

Poetry will cleanse

Ill use my words
To spread

Trust me
Its worth
Far more
Than what you

Satin sheets

How much more history
Can fit between these satin sheets
From that first night
In strong arms
To a tear shed
And overcoming my hatred of feet
This bed is only full size
Though sheets have been washed
And dryed
This history soaked into the fibers
How much more can these sheets survive?
Sleepless nights
Our first fight
Which was long before we realized
See when I was little
I thought
Love was no more than satin sheets
Nights on the beach
Summers away from home
And maybe it starts that way
But here we are
8 monthes later
Cramming our story in between
Pillow cases and the thread count
Waiting for the day these
Satin sheets wear out
Well go buy new ones
Our love has never given us
A mountain we couldnt climb
Ill just remake the bed
In satin everytime

But don’t forget who you really are. And I’m not talking about your so-called real name. All names are made up by someone else, even the one your parents gave you. You know who you really are. When you’re alone at night, looking up at the stars, or maybe lying in your bed in total darkness, you know that nameless person inside you. Your muscles will toughen. So will your heart and soul. That’s necessary for survival. But don’t lose touch with that person deep inside you, or else you won’t really have survived at all.

So true

She’s the girl that believes that what comes around goes around. The one that hopes for a better day. The one that won’t give up on you. She’s the girl that’s unlike the rest. The one that spent her days smiling, and her nights crying. She’s the girl that would love to be loved. The one that looks so damn strong, but feels so weak. She’s the girl that picks herself up every time she falls.

#6 Ghosts of ourselves

We are all just ghosts of ourselves
Guided to better the vessel
The shell
Like a child becomes adult
when throwing away toys
Age on takes effect
When we create another ghost
They follow us
They haunt our minds
Versions of ourself
We wish we never did find
Past mistakes they carry with them
Embedded in our bodys
Like memory foam
Every picture stitched in skin
Words left in flesh
Go ahead dig in
My ghosts or no friends of mine
Id hide from them if i could
Tethered to the rope around my neck
The follow me like a good pet should
We all have some just lingering there
Behind our backs
Rotting our fresh air
Soon even this version will expire
My vessel will update
A ghost will be added
Singing with the chior

#5 Afliction

Tell me of your sweet addiction
How it holds you tight like a lover should
Wraps you up and makes life good
Tell me how it solves the problems
Makes you go completely numb

I thought that you were not this dumb

Sweetie let me be your new affliction
Dump the bottle down the drain
Hide the money
Stop the pain
Ill hold you tight like lovers do

Promise you tomorrow
Make everything new
Youll never feel alone again
Ill be a better friend then jim I swear
To my kiss jack could not compare
Jose wont even stand a chance
Not after youve got just one glance

Take my hand we will make it through
The way your sweet addiction faulters you
The bottle soon will empty out
When i just keep giving
Love never runs out

#4 My BFF

I see you in the mirror lurking
Behind me where my shadows stands
I see the face you make
The smirking
Reaching out a boney hand

I know you hear what it is im thinking
A wish for strength to win the fight
I know youll offer my the knife
I try to force my hand not to take it

With heavy shallow breaths i takes
i see my reflection twice
In the mirror, in the blade
It was only me i never liked

Laughing hard convinced youll win
Assume i still call you my one true friend
The only friend who would have me killed
A true bff with hidden will

See you hide yourself under my bed
In the closet in my head
Though you come out when things get rough
I fight with you to show im tough

The tempation never faulters though
Something left from a hidden past
Though scars may heal
The voice doesnt dim
Living everyday reminding myself

Hes just my demon
Im stronger than him

#3 In helping

Humanity lost is nothing new
Battling loss within a crew
Darkness folds into her heart
Leaving her with all new scars
Light at the end still pouring through
Seems to take so long to walk to
How long can just one tunnel be
How many more turns til shes set free

See he was just a lonely soul
Trying to fill a gaping hole
His mind just wouldnt let peices fit
Pushing everyone away in just one slit
Not caring about the ones who love
That hole, its just a cover up

Shes said before we hurt ourselves
I live alone cause i put myself up on that shelf
No one seems to hear her though
Could carve words in skin
Still be left unknown
A lesson best learned then taught
Cant save the unwilling
Just sit back and watch

He covers up what it is he fears
Never finding love in someones tears
Playing big and bad and tough
Under the mask theres hidden fluff
A bottle can only hold so much
Instead of pouring a drink
He glues it shut

She wishes he would just let go
But she cant preech more than she knows
Space was all that she could give
though she loves him dearly
This was all she could do
In helping him

#2 Dagon

He closes his eyes in aguish
The way he always does
This time they look more sunken
His thoughts a song unsung
Silenty he calls out for her
His friend his lover his foe
How many years has she been absent his side
Better yet
How many men hs she turned her back on him with
How strong does a love have to be
To bring a mighty demon to his knees
His eyes,
They find the moon
Stained red with the bloodshed
Of a million years
Reminding himself
Demons dont cry
They have no fears
They shed no tears
Shes with a human
Her vessel and home
Theres no way he could find her
Or reach her
Even so
They arent allowed to go back home
Lilith, he mutters cautiously
Without you it feels again
Ive lost my life
I need you here
I demand my wife
Ive lost the entertainment in chaos
Causing discord no longer a game
All I do is seek a vengence
Though I have no one to blame
I feel so shallow
Without your gold spun hair
Falling through my fingertips
Dagon feels broken
Without repair
A demon scorned to time
Though his heart is cold
And black
His molden eyes burn red
He longs for liliths comfort
With no rest
Until shes at his side again.

#1 Sewn Flesh

Alone the lurking shadow creeps
Along the fire synged land
Near the creak
Just round the bend
I saw it with mine own two eyes
With skin of night and
Hands of twine
It stared at me with eyes aglow
Burning with the coldness of winters snow
I tip toed towards it
Like I always do
Its bleeding wrists drug on the ground
Leaving trails of scarlet
So it may be found
Its belly fat with food it wont hold
Vomits spews from its mouth
Secrets untold
Hip bones
Collar bones
Tore through skin
A jaw so small
A mind so thin
It looked at me
The frown went on for miles and miles
To my own shock my heart stopped beating
I felt my strength slowly depleating
My own face looked back at me
A stranger with uncertainty
Scared was I of this tragedy
All my demons rolled into one
Depression alone
Anorexia at its peak
Bullimia purging
Anxiety surging
Self harm urging
The monster ran out of my sight
Straight back into my body
Looking through its evil eyes
I sowed seems in my flesh
Were it escaped from
And intern
Put on my ravish sunday best
Looked in the mirror confessed
I have a demon in me.
