Dreams & Death

Dreams aren't, always, killed...
Occasionally, they die
slow, natural deaths...

Dying

One only dies once
and yet, this single dying
lasts for a lifetime...

simplicity vs toxicity

In a chamber of despair,
I yearn to be sane
where I'm painfully aware  
is inside of my brain.  
 
Holding stains from my past  
that I'm forced to relive,  
These walls are the last  
I expect to forgive.  
 
Inside them are demons  
that feed on mistakes.  
And they taunt me with reasons  
 my heart often breaks.  
 
My facade has been strong,  
blending in just enough.  
One that always belongs  
and is worthy of love.  
 
But now it's flimsy and thin,  
so the darkness escaped.  
Now I'm forced to defend  
what can't be contained.  
 
No matter how often,  
It's a fight to survive.  
Like i'm locked in a coffin  
and no one knows i'm alive.  
 
Deep inside of this void  
that nothing can fill,  
is one who's destroyed  
and desperate to feel.  
 
Deep and poetic,  
but I've wasted my words.  
Perhaps I'm pathetic  
or just haven't been heard.  
 
Many souls dealt me pain  
when I wanted just one.  
They've brought me the rain  
while I gave them the sun.  
 
I posses dark rooted sorrow  
and not one ounce of fake.  
My hand you may borrow,  
but my heart you won't take.  
 
My abandonments heavy,  
like my soul hangs it's head.  
But I yearn to be ready  
when I crawl out of bed.  
 
I long for simplicity,  
an escape from my mind  
but In a world full of symmetry
I am far from aligned.

Alien Angels

At first we thought them beautiful angels. We had no idea our celestial visitors were demons with dark evil souls, till it was too late.

Bleeding Eyes

A red sunset
burns
through shrouds of cloud.

Bleeding sun rays
trickle
in boiled waves of sea.

Fire and Tears (Haiku)

You are the fire,
I your tears, together –
boil and quarrel

Amour Propre

Many shall choose submissiveness,
degrading their spirit.
Like a butterfly’s tenuous wing
disintegrating in the air your world inflames with narcissism.

Dig yourself a hole

They said they don’t care
what people think
I said, see how long you can go
without putting that in ink

Epic failure

“Those who laugh constantly
are more depressed.”
Who’s lying then about having
a healthy relationship?

"Leave"
My mind prays to be medicated,
Despite its hatred of being sedated.
I cannot think or breathe,
But yet the life does not leave.

When one
gives birth
protects
and feeds
the bitterness
and jealousy
that whispers
within
one has become
a shadow
dressed in flesh
where regret
comes to visit
on the day
you draw
your last breath
