ArtificialWords.. no voices. No faces.
Just dead letters.
Imagination sprung to life through expressions
that in actuality has gone through several changes
before reaching the destination,
creating an image in your mind
of who or what I am.
Whatever you feel for me,
you feel for that image that may, or may not be me.
Same goes for you, of course.
I admit, here and now, that I don't know you.
And I doubt that I ever will.
I'm not sure I'd want to.
ForlornI'm a pearl, born beneath the waves,
far out of the reach of sunlight.
The oceans are dark, but beautiful.
Cold, but alive.
This is my home.
The home of my soul.
She was attracted to it.
Fascinated by it.
I longed to taste the sunlight,
breathe the fresh air,
of the place she calls home.
Green grass beneath my feet,
laughter bubbling in my chest.
But she wanted to weep
at the painful beauty I see every day.
She didn't see my needs to get out of there.
Or maybe she just didn't care.
She couldn't stay there, so she left.
And she left me there,
without allowing me
to see the sky that fills her soul.
Seed ( The Potential Flower )Imagine the most beautiful, golden seed.
What potential would it have to grow a magnificent flower from it!
Wouldn't we want to see such a beauty?
..But the seed isn't even visible from within the black,
aversive shell it's hidden to. Hard and impenetrable.
...Am I just imagining the existence of this seed?
No seed itself holds any value, no matter how beautiful,
if it never gets the sun and air needed to nurture it
to become what it's meant to be..
ApartWe'd just tear each other to pieces..
I feel like I'm bleeding right now.
Why do you even feel uncomfortable when I'm around?
For goodness sake, no-one's asked you to keep checking on me...
I never wanted to be a "big deal" in your life..
Just to chat, have a friend to talk to and have fun with...
But these feelings are too strong, both ways....
We're too different..
There's too much that clash between us..
and it all gets too deep.
We're better off apart.
PrizeYou are not a "prize" I'm after.
We've both gone through rough roads to get here.
And I forgive you, hoping you will one day forgive me, too.
And I believe in you.
But please remember, this isn't only about you.
Try to think of me, too.
That I'm a person, just like you..
Different, so very different, than you are.
I hope you can understand and respect that.
You cannot rush into things,
maybe your heart is not ready..
Maybe, it will never be ready.
While I have waited,
and I feel I've waited long enough.
I have no more patience,
and I'm incapable of taking any more risks.
If we cannot find our way
to the halfway, where our roads would meet,
then I suppose it's time we go our separate ways.
For isn't it unfair,
that one would have to walk the whole way,
to reach the other,
while the other sees no effort
to meet them at all?
Too muchTake my pain away..
Just hold me, and make the nightmare fade away.
Whisper to me lies of a beautiful life.
Show me how you make those lies become the truth.
Tell me it was never real.
Say it's all in my head..
Make my heart believe again,
that the only reality exists within it.
KissI look you in the eyes,
lock you with my gaze until you're hypnotized.
Around my finger, of your hair I wrap a wreath,
pulling you close enough you can't take a breath,
and kiss you so
the sky explodes.
GoodbyeDo you have a reason why you're here? Are you aware of what it is?
Does it have anything to do with me, or is it for selfish reasons?
..Isn't it for me? Hasn't it always been for me..?
You failed to realize, from the beginning, just as I failed to explain it,
that I'd rather it had been for selfish reasons..
For it would have meant I was important to you.. Do you understand?
I never wanted you here "for me".. I wanted you here - you wanting to be here.
..Do you understand?
Amazingly long you have stuck around "for me".
You fail to realize, just as I fail to explain it,
that if it is something you can simply decide on,
I'd rather you stay away entirely, than be here, now, "for me".
Whatever it is you'd want to say, can just as well be left unsaid
if it's something I'd wish to hear, or I'd need to hear.
If it's not something you wish, or need, for yourself.
Don't feel guilty about it.
If there'd be just one thing in the world I don't deserve,
then it'll always be the thing I desire the m
Forever yours, never mineWhat image do they have of me?
They have never known what goes on inside my mind,
Who do they think I am?
How have they created the image within their minds?
Their own thoughts.. guesses.. assumptions..
That's what I grew up to be in their minds.. their hearts..
So I still am, if only a mere memory..
But that's all they'll ever see in me.
Never the truth of what I really am.
They never cared to find out.
They'll never realize,
the person they think is me,
is nothing but a lie,
created by themselves..
I can do nothing about it.
I AmI am single,
but I am loved.
I am not a genius,
but I am intelligent.
I am not breathtaking,
but I have beauty.
I am not a saint,
but I am kind.
To the world,
I am not perfect.
But for someone,
Don't pick a fight with an Artist
Don't pick a fight with an artist
Wanna fight pussy?
Give me yar best shot
Or will you throw a paintbrush at me?
I'm so scared- not
Excuse me? What did you say?

I'll be gentle I promise- I did need new ink! In the colour red<
All Her Little ThingsStop hating her for the littlest things.
The things she can't prevent,
The things she can't save herself from..
Stop demanding her to do things,
Things she can't accomplish,
Things she can't imagine being done...
Stop lying to her,
Telling her you love her,
Want her, need her...
When all you've ever done is make her want to
Stop hating her for the littlest things.
The things she can't prevent,
The things she can't save herself from...
When those little things you've done
Take her down...
The little things won't matter anymore.
lung canceri will die with your name on my lips
because there is nothing else i'll need to say.
you are my coffin, my funeral pyre.
as my bones disintegrate, popping and snapping,
you will greedily swallow my ashes
until nothing is left of me but secondhand smoke.
i've danced with you, love, across hospital tile,
the scent of antiseptic cloying as valentine's chocolate.
you dipped me into unconsciousness,
and i willingly closed my eyes.
the intrusion of your scalpel teeth no longer scares me.
you, my rigor mortis soul mate, always take me under.
your tent of frostbitten shelter pulls me down, an anchor,
while i gag on pills too abstract to save me.
forgive me, lungs, of my cigarette abuse,
but i've found happiness in a reaper's cloak.
i find comfort in these carcinogens.
i've made my nest in a swaying tree,
my body destroyed by the nauseous rocking.
they smile at me with pity in their eyes,
scribbling nonsense on those jaw-like clipboards.
their crisp, stark white world still has faith in me,
you've been dead for a year, my deari met you on december 21st,
the longest night of the year.
you had solstice eyes: cold, dark, alluring.
i knew you were not meant to last,
powerful as a gale but fragile as
the tulip stems you snapped,
a sickening cycle of you,
an overwhelming tidal wave.
they say two wrongs will never make a right,
but i made so many bad choices that
i wound up back where I began.
it was too easy to love you,
but getting you to love me back was impossible.
i clawed at your chest until I struck blood,
until my nails split into shards.
you were born a phantom,
and i, your corpse.
holding onto you felt like drowning in quicksand;
i fought but always sank into your arms.
i breathed in dirt, breathed in dust, and
found my organs choked with you,
smothered by your existence.
you sucked out my breath
every time i kissed you.
i died every day with your hand
knotted in my hair.
You left on june 21st,
the longest day of the year.
i bit down sorrow and deconstructed
the labyrinth within me,
the one you hadn't th
Mirror, MirrorMirror, mirror, on the wall,
Watch it crumble, break and fall.
Look at all the bloody glass,
How it reminds them of a severed past.
Watch a reflection slowly disappear,
Looking at all the shattered, crushed mirrors.
A breathless state of mind goes by,
Am I just alive or did I die?
Confused and in an awe,
Careless people unknown to what one saw.
Throat slit so one can't be unlocked,
Too bad the thoughts have become blocked.
Crimson splatters, dripping, breaking away,
Thou shall not know the feeling of all the pain.
Oh, Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Why did you crumble, break and fall?
Eye of the StormI believed I could make the wind blow,
and force the moon to shine at night,
create rainbows just by thinking,
and hold tea parties for fairies in July,
I was the queen of my own graceful lands.
Yet, I grew old and realized,
I am the kind of girl who'd trip and fall,
often for stepping on her own feet.
My crown of diamond and gold
now a rusted piece of bronze,
I lost my throne to treason, my kingdom to hate,
I became the eye of a hurricane,
loaded with mishaps I need to atone.
I felt the soft touches of angels,
and lost my own wings to demons who could crush stone.
Felt the scorching tears run so often,
I knew I must have hit bottom low.
I had nothing holy, no one to call dear,
but here I am, the starting point of my own storm.
I felt fear, clung to shadows,
encased my heart within marble walls,
and threw the keys that can unlock my soul.
So many chances I've lost with no love to seek,
and so many people I turned my back to.
I let the darkness gnaw through my bones.
A stranger walked up to me today...A man walked up to me and asked me for a cigarette… I told him I didn't smoke anymore, and he asked me why? ––I answered "because the person I used to smoke with, isn't around anymore", and he replied…"that's why I smoke."
A woman walked up to me and asked me for drugs, I replied "I have several in store…his eyes, his smile, his hands"…she whispered, "that's not a drug"…and I laughed as I said.. "if only you knew."
A child walked up to me today and asked me to play a game, I told them I was too tired to play games, i'd been playing for years, they replied…"then you must be a pro!", to which I said "yes…a pro at losing."
An old woman stared at me today, and I asked her…"is something wrong?" she answered "I was about to ask you the same question."

Wander to nowhereA ghostly walk on the autumnal pavement
Even my own shadow is gleaming more
Than the empty shell of my body.
As I keep wandering, on this endless pit
Picky starving crows are looking down on me
The leftovers of my thoughts order me to die out.
This path of glory I've kept away from, it might be gone.
My dignity and pride, where have you fled?
I'm searching for the graveyard of redemption
Where my promises are all buried
Shot down by my deceit's gun.
Will you ever forgive me?
As I'm standing there, the icy silence blows ;
As time goes by, the ruthless mutism of yours
Reckons that time for forgiveness hasn't come yet.
Blind DeerLike a deer, chased by hungry lions
She ran and ran, terrified
her heart beating in her chest so hard that it shattered
She ran and found shelter in a dark forest
She hid there alone for so many years
Scared of the lions, she started thinking
every sound of branches was made by the lions.
One day, she had to wander out
in search of water she got out of the dark
Her eyes got blinded in the light outside the forest
Seeing nothing, she sensed someone nearby..
Timidly, I spoke to you
Afraid of how you would perceive me
All I needed back then was one kind simple word
that you gave me
You barely noticed me
and you never knew how brave you made me
How scared I was at the time
How far I've come in four years
How much my eyes have opened since then
We tore each-other's hearts out
Ripped them to small pieces
and ate them
But always I managed to get them back to where they belong
You never knew how strong you made me
Somehow I managed to lose you along the way
And I fea
LithiumA single trickling rain drop
Like gossamer silk strands
Gliding along my third eye
Whispers wind's secret caress
I exhale. Lungs releasing-
Pressing translucent memories;
Fragment of a fragment
As water kisses rose petal,
Drifting down stream's curtain
Pretty little curtain.
Where the wizard lies.
He smiles up at me
With his monocled brow-
Sipping on warm tea
And fingers quacking casually
To the rhythm of his notes
This is a safe-zone. Free-zone.
Innocent eyes sparkle,
Imploring it to be true. I breathe.
Keep in Touch!
