Sicilian opera

masterminder plucks my strings
soporific limbs revived for yet another show

an audience blind to the man in the dark
pacified by eyes and a smile carved by callous hands

dis-heart-end

the umpteen self-implanted bugs wobbled
with tentacles of undisclosed (undesirous)
objective, were plucked abrupt by hard earned
rays of composure, still pockets of hardcore
crevices doomed in darkness weighed evermore

reading in the dark

tracing my skin as if it were braille
i realize i'm indecipherable

i claw at it
rewriting the cells cast by everyone's eyes

he says
take my pills

smooth again

I wake sucking his hard steel
wanting an explosion in my mouth  

says he can't love me
wife and kids
he's not gay
a cop

he left a gun

sucking

don't forget to breathe

I deny you

flooding my wounds with alcohol
feeling the sting of your infection
fading away

into denial

but you'll never let me go
holding on
with every aching breath

drifting minds past empty stars
Floating lonely universe
Trapped inside my own helish
Thought patrern my mind an
Empty burnt out cabin under the
Frosty night sky wating to die

I'm impressed so far! Keep them coming, poets

I will be lenient regarding the titles since I never specified any rules.

Title is optional and can be part of the 30 words or not

Letting My depression Swallow Me Whole.     ( NOT a Part of 30 words)

Usually Alone In the dark,
Running my fingertips over New Scars,
Cloudy days make it worse,
The Words Echoing in my head,
Wishing to be dead.
This depression is Agonizing..

Stained


Shackled to carousel thoughts,
round and round.
But these horses are all dark
and their teeth are bared.

The music jars, a jagged melody
painting scraps of every wrong word.

I bought into it...

That sinking drab
misty-eyed gray
muted
coloured leaves
blowing further and further
away

Somehow
All doors fixed shut
I only peek
outside my windows
frosty glass

Blue calls


Pawing at my door
his shadow
quick
beside my step
just a ghost
rattling
an empty chest

icicles cling
from sleet fall
no sun
rises
only...

dismal proper

Just rather empty

Things change but the sense stays;
the world turns but lacks all wonder,
all now means nothing
and becomes hollow
melding together pointlessly,
nothing bothered, nothing gained.
