As I look outside the window
I see a sunny day
And hear the laughter of my friends
As they walk away
They’re walking towards the future
Into a better time
The smiles on their faces
Are reflecting in their lives
But as they walk that golden road
I start to look around
No laughter fills this empty room
No sunlight fills this ground
Cold bars across the windows
Strong locks upon the doors
The only key to my escape
Lies in the kitchen drawer
I take a breath of courage

Light fails,
Hope fades,
The blood makes trails
Across my white skin.

All good is gone,
And I’ve lost my way.
My blade helps me go on,
But I hate it…

I’m so lost -
Strayed too far,
And my life is the cost
Of leaving my path.

Why
When i think of you
Does my page remain blank?

Even in todays expansion of emptiness
I find stray thoughts
Of you Indestructible

Maybe you too spare a moment
Nostalgia has a lot to answer for
A lover we both shared

Manipulative of so many young lives
Whores for danger
All they did was love him

A crime
One punishable
By Death

i try: to sing; to talk, to love
everytime i fail: i don’t
get back up
i slither away: and cut my
self up
until the wounds have
diseased my
skin
which demolishes all of
the sin I am in

cowering beads of sweat
retreat to the origin of fear
pores dilate, and reverse the
melancholiac phases of the
phoenix stigmata.

the iridescent tears convert
to onyx, pools of oil erupt
and bleed out through the holes
of my martyred body.

girl fits her body in
the space between the bed and
the wall. she is a stalk,
exhausted. she will do something
with this, she will
surround these bones with flesh,
she will cultrate night vision,
she will train her tongue to
lie silent in her mouth and listen.
the girl slips into sleep,
her dreams are red and raging.
she will remember to build
something human with it.

Left alone in her bed
The screams won’t stop ringing
Being trapped with her thoughts
The mental words stinging

The most hazardous threat
Her solitude and quiet
A soul feeding her lies
So the heart can go buy it

Persuaded through the hatred
This demon likes to deal
She’s reopening old wounds
So the pain can never heal

See the bloodstains that none
Can find and wash away
Laying on the crumpled pages
Of each slowly passing day

I try so hard to please you
My efforts are in vain
There’s no way to appease you
As I suffer all this pain

Frustration kills my sanity
I lash out at my core
Your ideals dipped in vanity
Leave me broken even more

Every drop of my will
Is drained like blood so red
I’ve given up, but still
I hear screams inside my head

I’ll continue waiting for you
For as long as time will last
The steps between us are few
Yet I’m still stuck in the past

Tired of affection
Torture to dangle
Always neglected
Emotion to strangle

The Siren of evil
Each day a waste
I’m calling to death
So lure me with haste

Sick from the sight
I long to take part
Begrudging the one
To last touch my heart

Her calm, winding arms
They’re pulling me in
Her long, wind-whipped hair
Lashing hard at my skin

Bored with the routine
The love in such eyes
Of false empathy
And everyday lies

I saw her sit,
There in despair.
I saw her write -
Her suicide note.
I saw her sign,
Her name in blood.
I saw her slit,
Her thin, scarred wrists.
I saw her die, alone -
Forever unloved…

I saw me sit,

My thin, scarred wrists.

Forever unloved…
