MaybeSometimes I layAwake at nightAnd wonder whatYou thinkAbout my lifeAnd my regretsAnd all of myAfflictions.I’m not nearlyThe best in beauty,Or talent or otherDepartments.My love is allI have to offer,And I know it isn'tMuch,But maybe youCould still love me,And fill my emptyHeart.
ChangingMy face is linedDespite my youth,And eyes are crinkledLike an elder’s.My mirror is likeA muddy puddleJudging by myReflection.My nails are dullAnd cracked a bitBy scraping downMy arms.Though, now, things are changing;No matter where I look,I see pastWhat I couldn't.I've given some thoughtAs to why this is,And I can only thinkOf one answer.Your words have erasedThe thoughts in my head,And replaced them with thoughtsOf you.Perhaps I am notThe reason for allMy failures, disputes,And heartbreaks.Your beautiful voice,Like harpsichords in my headMakes me want to live in my HellForever.As you tell meYou love me,Everything disappearsBut you.Your words make me thinkThat I will move forwardAnd stop hurtingEveryone and I.
Relieved By MortalityAs the close comes near,Eyes flash with fear,Combing the blackNever able to go back.My pupils adjustTo what is unjustAnd peer and them,Reciting my hymns.Teeth bared without regret-What a sight I won’t forget.I will forever recollectBeing genetically incorrect.Relief courses through me,And I climb down my tree.I repel from my cover,And leave, in peace, to meet my lover.
The Individual That CriedUpon the conceptionOf the cerulean skyThere came a girlWith a bitter end.She caused this herself;Breaking promise after promise,She fled from her distressIn bitterness. Prior to arriving,She noticed her errorAnd tried to turnAgain.Though, soon she realizedThe damage was doneThe moment she exposedHer back.Upon examination, she noticedShe was stained;Cuts and blood had tarnishedHer spine.Those she thought she had lovedHad carved their initialsIn the flipside ofHer body.In horror and rage,She screamed through the night,But was only heardBy crows.When the day broke freeCrowds flocked to seeIf she had survivedThe dusk.But, all they could findWas a pile of ashesAnd the feathers with liceFrom her friends.She watched from the azure,Tears raining down white cheeks,And realized she wasThe individual that cried.
Silver and GoldInto his eyes I stareAs, around me,They appearCovered in blackAnd wielding scythes of silver.Though i thought my eyes were gold,I realized now I peered at His;My own shine merely bronze.So, with silver scytheAnd gold eye,From my loveI am pried.Now, only left are those inBlack, and He with Golden Eye.I surrender to the nightWith only strangled cries.
ChainsMy chains are often unseenAnd, when seen, misunderstoodAnd judged as if seenIn entirety.I do not need youTo hold me backOr carefully watchEach step I take.My chains are notTight as you think;I have breath enoughTo cry.Though once you wereA haven for me-A safe and quietPlace,Now, when I seeYour catlike eyesA chill runs downMy spine.You are my chainsI drag with me.Now, let me leaveThem all behind.
The CavernCarelessly he descendsSpiraling to The CavernHe drags her downWith himThey step intoThe Cavern,Though happy she may seem,She laughs to hide her tearsHis hands are soft,Though sharp as nails.He caresses her hair,With care like a bull.He scrapes her chestWith angelic fingersAs, in a sea of bliss,He steals her pride.Whispering together,She fakes her joyAnd they stay togetherIn The Cavern.
The TreeScratched and bentAnd twisted in ruin,The tree is easilyIncinerated. It sips from the tearsOf those who are deadAnd watches withKnotted fists.It stretches farAnd strangles othersWithout a backwardGlance.It seems to onlyStrangle the innocent,The small, unhealthy, and pure.I would kill for smallOr innocent or purePerhaps then I wouldSee the end of tortureAnd torment brought forthBy The Tree.
