And when I think back to the day when we first
Stumbled across one another, red sneakers hanging off gutters
Cherry cola voice overs and dilated pupils
We led one another on to believe in the night sky of connect the dot constellations
You wanted to dissect me and peer into the insides of my lungs
Only to find witches breath and dandelions
Slicing iron vowels you locked your hands in mine
And we fell into the static of dreaming disease
The operating table broke away to reveal a sky that never existed
And we couldn't help but laugh at the irony
Because wishing was never an option

slides into the sea dissolving
with the nocturne rain, falling
mixing your pain and the shifting water
... mending it
As phantom creatures of the deep blue
they earn winged fins to fly
and find in the liquid sky
jewels dancing in the movement of tides,
bathing on the moonlight
The reef is a shining constellation
where you are, its most amazing star reflection
Don't cry, hidden, behind the dark red coral walls
come with me and see
riding the crystal waves and foam
the licorns speeding and singing

I'm becoming an anemic. I am so love sick.
You're a sickness. Your touch like needles

There is no defense from your nails tearing epidermis.
I'm becoming a victim. I am so love sick.
You're a sickness. Now I have caught it.
A contagion with an addiction. There is no cure for

In the dark, hoping that such masses will not take me and eliminate me with jerking blindness, tiresome
And weary I go about lurking, looking for some hope at the end of this tunnel, for distance is all that is
Lost in the sight of my power, crouched and belittled I remain at the end of this hoard, for I was forced
Out on myself, on the corners of darkness and it has weighed me down to solid ground making me,
Disappear from the locks of light, for hope is not a choice for me in this drearisome place, and it is not

my mother used to tell me
"you will not understand
the magnitude of what you've said
until you've said it."
And, as promised,
I have come to tell you: I've said it.
I have come to tell you
I felt the vibrato
coax my deepest bones:
an immortal vex, a cage
of everything alive beneath my flesh;
the things that will stay alive
after everything alive in my body
has turned to ash.
I have come to tell you
I felt the magnitude build
in my chest like the flapping
of birds, dead things
I assumed would never
breathe life, that I would never
understand what it is like
to choke on their tiny bones
while I trip over my words.

Upon the weak who fear our stay
Its natural to feast and slay
Their hearts bleed in our jowls
We all wear masks and masquerade
As decent creatures, folks who pray
But deep inside, our demons play
Beneath cowardice cowls
The others claim to know the way
Those neutered, tamed, trained to obey
Condemning us for what we say
Look down at us with scowls
They lock our voices in a cage
Restrictions bind, we’re blind with rage
Liberate yourselves, you slaves
Let free your hungry howls
To the vermin calling me scoundrel
I will not heel, I will not bow
You’ll hear the hatred in my growl

When your not by my side

How do I get something back

I can’t believe I lost you
Wish I had a time machine
So I can stop myself
From what I did to you
I can’t sorry
Because it’s late isn’t it
Sorry at this point
Is not magical
It can’t heal everything!
Never thought it would end this way
You were the only light shining
In my life that lasted all night and day
You were so everlasting
I’ll never forget the love we shared

I may look strong, but I feel so weak
I know I look happy, but I have so much pain
Just kill me now, before it starts to rain
You may not be able to understand how I feel
But I can assure you, my pain is real
As I’m writing this, I feel like dying
All I can do now, is crying
I can’t pretend anymore
I got rid of my mask
Maybe the truth is not what you came for
I know you wouldn’t ask
But when you do, you’ll get it all
Don’t get scared, I won’t call
Just let it go, don’t let it grab you
Because you will regret it when you do

So, stop, stop crying,
I'll fake a smile for you,
Even if deep down, it hurts to see you with another,
All I want is for you to be happy,
So I'll conceal these feelings, for your sake,
Now, Why don't you stop crying?
Please, Smile for me.
It hurts to see you in pain,
And it hurts more to know it was because of me,
Of my pain,
I'm sorry, I'm sorry,
So, won't you please smile for me?
I'll smile for you, if it is what you seek,
Wipe all those tears, And show me that smile,
For you look prettier with it,
But why?! Why do you not show me that warm smile of yours?
Is it obvious that I'm faking?

Walking by, trying not to talk
Being raised as a nobody
Being an emotionless boulder
But you've just gotta get by
And you can't cry on a shoulder
Because you can't get a grip
Because you're always gonna trip
You can't wring their neck
You're gonna have to leave deck
They don't understand
You're afraid of yourself
I don't even know who I am
I don't understand what I am
Can't get a grip
Can't even trip
But I have to keep pushing forward
Will there be a day when I sit down?
Will there be a day when I just give up?
Surely I hope not

Just to be with you
Instead of going to bed
Although I was so tired

You mean so much to me
Although you never
Did anything for me
But thats what you think

I called you angel and sun
You came into my life
After I relapsed
And was about to die
From my own hand
You brought me life
You brought me light
You brought me laugh
You brought me love

What you think about me.
You didn't even let me express my thoughts before you put me down.
You didn't have the courtesy to acknowledge my exsistance.
That is, unless you want to humiliate me.
What do you want to acomplish by this?
Surely you have better things to do.
Like making sure every strand of your hair is in the perfect position.
Does that make you popular?
If it doesn't, what does?
Obviously it isn't your kindness.
Someday I'll get my payback.
I just need to find the right time.

I wish I could throw them all to the floor,
Smash them open to release what’s inside.
That swirling liquid forever in torment,
Locked away from the outside world,
Trapped inside glass,
And sealed by cork.
They sit on the shelves,
Staring at me,
Making me shudder with the emotions they hold.
If I release them what will happen?
I don’t think I could control the power they imbue.

and you threw it in the sea;
You tore up my soul
and flung it out the window.
But even though I writhe
on the floor in agony,
The greatest pain is knowing
I got played.
You used me and you rejected
everything I was,
everything I am.
And now, I stand alone
on the shore of self-pity,
And even though
I thought I knew you,
you were never more
you are nothing more
you will never be more
than an empty space
in what’s left of my heart.

A cove, secluded and remote,
The sea crashes against the shore, breaking and flowing.
Moonlight drips down the rocks of the surrounding cliffs, like liquid silver.
Trickles onto the sand, illuminating it.
Shining on a young woman. She stands there, alone.
Her clothes whip wildly around her.
Her hair writhes around her, like a live creature.
Her eyes flash with joy.
She tilts her head back in rapture, entranced by the sea`s majesty.
Her senses afire.
She smells the sea`s salt, tastes it on her lips, thrown up by the waves.
She hears the infinitesimal roaring of the sea; pure in intent, never contained.
She feels the cold wi
