Dreams & Death

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

Dying

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

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.
poet Anonymous

Bleeding Eyes

A red sunset
burns
through shrouds of cloud.

Bleeding sun rays
trickle
in boiled waves of sea.
poet Anonymous

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.
poet Anonymous

Be my friend

Be my friend

Friends forever

Who says I'm lonely?


I have two besties;
pain and sorrow...
poet Anonymous

"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.

poet Anonymous

D-Day

Received final divorce papers today.
Thought
I would feel
Something

Happy
Sad
Angry
Regret

But really feel
Neutral

Weird

R

 A rose with petals of titanium
 
Her bloody thorns tiny daggers
ripped my flesh, elevated me
 
I kneel, and know she is my love



COMPETITION PIECE: Doppelganger: the DUP Oscars. I wrote this for Delanee, She has a razor sharp terse verse that takes my breath away.

                                   May I finally stop waking
                                   May I finally stop healing
           Let my wrists be painted red, my face colored white
                                                And embrace
                                                 My afterlife.

poet Anonymous

Pain
i give to others
for i fear to face
my own
in a world
where the children

Are The Prey

poet Anonymous

screaming scars


still bleeding
in need of healing
oozing yet again

devil's lick
they begin to split
these scars still scream
