Below the Low

It's going to be a different day
Maybe even a good one
Listening to the radio
"This is the day, your life will surely change"
I feel so torn since I was born
Life is easy when you set your death point by your own theory
I'm wondering how many layers are there in depression
As I look to the window
Hearing Christine sing to Eric
Daydreaming of going away in a three mast ship
In a blink of an eye I could cross the threshold
My intriguing scene shakes me
Below the low
here it comes
Sinking oh no not again
God help me in my need to feel complete
Playing with diamond cards
But the joker always knows whats on your mind
Voilins are playing in my darkest hour
And the sweetest melody I hear is from the musical figurine
that plays on...

Cold Eyes

ďIím so sick of being attached to people who obviously donít give a fuck about meĒ


But you didnít bother to correct me Cold Eyes choking me by the smoke of your cigarette that i pretend i donít mind
 

And then i was gone in the labyrinth of my ribcage
chewing on the bars ripping out innards ravenous abandonment
rejection throwing haphazard bones onto your living room floor
The child i was feraled from her dwelling
A heathen cured in bile the parasite leaching her way into control
Retching all the way up my throat to the bar lights deadlights


And then we were back sans esophagus

 


The cigarette she bummed scorpioned my lungs
And i pretend i donít mind and Cold Eyes says ó

ďOther side of the storyĒ


Iím sticking up for someone thatís uneducated
and if I am too
then this shouldnít be too complicated
donít get annoyed
and just consider me not amazing
So I was inspired like many of other poets
to give an ass-whooping
like I got it going free
Whoís down with knowledge
and only ever writing erotic poetry?
Lead by example and call her mother
yet donít speak upon her child
she doesnít want her knowing she can only pull in perverts
Iím angered at such foolishness
set themselves up to ridiculed as such

Remember

Do you remember me
The lonely one in the corner
Always on the outskirts
Never quite fitting in
Just a little awkward

Do you remember me
There but not there
A footnote in life
Merely a ghost in the crowd
Never in the line of sight

Do you remember me
 Nothing but a whisper
That was never really heard
A shadow on the wall
The faint echo

Do you remember me
No donít say you did
Cause Iím still here
Still on the outside
Trying to get in

Do you remember me
In years gone by
Was it worth all the effort
To find the truth
I was just the entertainment

donít pity the man who tells you a sad story

 
what a picture: you, suckling a heroin teat.

we are all so sorry  
and we understand
youíve been badly treated †
honey itís not your fault  

who could love a man like you? i must be the only one  
who sees through you  
so why would you deceive me  
knowing how i care for you †

who could handle a man like you? †
with what youíve been through †
with the trust Iíve given you †
with the trauma we share †
how could you violate  
my heart so  

thoroughly †

that i wonít trust a soul till I die  

and you will be perversely proud  
that you ruined me  

-itís just how I am, you say  
-i know, says the girl next door  
-itís what I like about you. weíre just the same as each other  

but you will always  
i mean forever  
be the worse  

and she will also leave you

Away

Asystole is such a lonely sound
As I watched you slip away
Emptiness came crashing down
Words are too hard to say
How do I tell the oneís I love
I pray for strength for today
Cause tomorrow Iíll just drink it away

Itís the first sunrise without you
All decisions are way too much
Canít find a reason, I donít have a clue
I screamed your name in affray
How can I go on, I feel so hopeless †
Maybe Iíll stop at the church to pray †
Or sit here on these steps and just drink it away

Today is the day, †Iíll lay you to rest †
I asked God why He took you away
My body and soul is so obsessed
A single rose, one last time to pray
As the tears fills my eyes †
When they lower you in that Georgia clay †
The darkness will overcome, †Iíll just drink it away †
 † †
Just drink it away
Little by little the pain will lead me astray
Just drink it away
You were my forever now the past is all I have... after today

Domestic

Another night, another fight
I'm in my room, I'm full of fright
So much stress, so much pain
I wish it all would go away

Do you even care what you've done?
You hurt your wife, your daughter and son!

Another night, another fight
Kick and scratch, claw and bite
Why did you cheat, why did you lie?
You make me sick, you make me cry

Do you even care what you've done?
You hurt your wife, your daughter and son!

Another night, another fight
He throws a left, he throws a right
A broken nose, a bruise and scar
Is this the night that it goes too far?

This shit's been going on for far too long
It's time for you to pay for what you've done!

Another night, another fight
This is it, it ends tonight
You've gotten on my very last nerve
You're gunna get, what you deserve

Do you even care what you've done?
You hurt your wife, your daughter and son!
We're not taking your shit no more
Tonight you're gunna wind up on the floor!

She 🌷

She wore her heart
For all to see
Like an ever †
Blooming  
Wild flower
Her delicate petals †
Flushed with a †
Vivid and lively †
Pallet †
Her beauty †
Created by the †
Gods †
A free soul †
Bound only by †
Her spirits imagination †
An ever elusive limit †
Infecting each and    
Every person †
That had the fortune †
To witness her †
With glowing †
Affection †
She was everything and †
Everyone †
The most sacred parts †
Of all human spirit †
And imagination †
A gift to her family †
The most cherished †
Of best, best friends †
They all called her †
"Sister" or "Sis" †
One to not let getaway †
To never let leave your life †
For your eternity †
Would forever be †
In sorrow and regret †
That you never realised †
The gift †
That was She †
†  
But †
She kept secrets †
Maybe owed to her †
Sensitivity of all things †
A silent heaviness †
Weighed down on her †
A burden †
An ever aching pain †
Never shared †
A killer of dreams †
Growing ever stronger †
With each day †
Every view in †
The mirror †
She never saw †
What the world saw †
†  
Alone †
In her room †
A mosaic of pictures †
Her friends †
Loved ones and †
her favorite bands †
†  
She †
Would view her reflection †
Glaring †
With sorrowful eyes †
On features †
Parts of herself †
That appeared to her as †
Ugly †
Strange †
Odd †
Weird †
Unnatural †
Obvious †
To her †
Standing out like a †
Persistent cruel joke †
A nightmarish sad trick †
Being played on her †
†  
Her thoughts racing †
Going back to the mirror †
To check †
To reevaluate †
To see if it was still the same †
"You're imagining it" †
She would say to herself †
But the thoughts would †
Grow †
Ever stronger †
†  
Whenever she would †
Go out †
Wherever she went †
The thoughts would come †
Seeing herself †
In her mind †
As an ugly, oddity †
Checking in each mirror she saw †
In bathrooms †
At school †
In restaurants †
The reflections in †
Shop window glass †
†  
From morning to night †
Her thoughts looping †
Unable to stop them †
Her insufferable pain †
Destroying her †
†  
Wearing her head down †
Looking to the floor †
Trying not to make †
Eye contact with people †
Her friends †
All noticing †
That she seemed †
Not her old self †
Her family †
Growing ever concerned †
†  
But †
She couldn't form the right words †
To tell them †
She thought she might be †
Losing her mind †
She never wanted to burden †
Anyone †
With her own problems †
When she knew †
There were so many people †
In the world with †
So many troubles †
†  
The incessant psychological pain †
The mirror checking becoming †
More and more often †
More repetitive †  
Each day †
An ever ending cycle †
Of imagining herself †
As a freak †
Thoughts of how to escape †
No way to get away from this †
Her reflection †
Killing her †
Her self image †
Clawing at her innocent †
Soul †
Telling her she could never †
Be good enough †
"How could something so vile †
And freakish ever †
Live a normal life †
Everyone is staring at your †
Ugly self" †  
The voices would say †
All consuming †
Never letting her †
Have peace with †
Herself †
Never seeing the true beauty †
That was She †
Inside and out †
†  
Her beautiful, loving heart †
Stopped beating †
†  
The empty jar of pills †
Found †
Next to her †
†  
No one ever again †
Witnessing †
†  
The beauty †
Of †  
She. †

Never Again

I hope you remember that I was the one who stuck
By your side through all the rain and rough patches,
But when I was the one who was really in the muck

You just left me to sink to rock bottom. The matches
Burned out and you left me all alone in the darkness
With no way to see or claw my way out. The scratches

And bruises made me feel ugly. I felt lonely, heartless
And lashed out on people who were just trying to assist.
I used to believe in the stars and moon, but the starless

Nights taught me to never trust when I was in the midst
Of my storm just like I could never trust any of the love
That ran through my veins. I told myself I could not exist

In a world filled with fake love and every mourning dove
That would take my sorrows away. I buried everything
Deep so no one can touch one thing I should be proud of;

The endless love that is bottomless. I know I cannot bring
Myself to the table where I know I am the one who gets
Left behind. I could no longer be your toy or plaything

When you get bored and lonely. I am the one who quits
You like a bad habit. You are the extinguished cigarettes.

Poem 5( A Disputed Love)

Bouncing through the cool waves of the Pens'
Simplistic unsaturated flow
  
Dancing on the shore in between am and pm †
Smoking through the dawn and the yawn of the morning †
†  
Coming full force under the sheets while hes ejaculating and stroking the consciousness of my wet art †
†  
Painting the saddest day of my life when he walked out and the shadow of pain stayed †
†  
Facing the reflection of anger, hate and rage †
†  
Waking up to the replay of me making a fool of love †
†  
Running water over my embarrasment †
†  
Drinking this hurt down to the last drop †
And throwing 151 up until my stomach screams †  
stop † † † †  
†  
This is pointless! †
