Don Matthews on Not Looking Forward to My Old Age, Specifically Arse Wiping (32 minutes ago)
Eyes and lips
blossom from your carved face,
sugar skull, sherbert fizz.
To Mr, from Mz,
we really wanted to fuck this.
Turned my brain insane,
my tongue inside
Caught in fog,
in haze, like cloudy lemonade;
a gaze, let's misbehave.
I won't make it.
this forever pretence,
can't do more pretend.
Take a hot hit,
bit by bit,

After a heartbreak you never thought would surpass
After definitively stating you would never allow yourself to be in a position of vulnerability again
After truly giving up on the idea of love
Letting a person in again is terrifying
Allowing someone the capability to destroy you further
But trusting them not to
Delegating your feelings, sharing your secrets and ultimate...

If you asked
what my heart
I would say;
half is pain.
If you said
love was dead,
Clear your head,
break the shell.
It's called pain,
caused by words.
Cant blame it,
bred to kill.
Sad but true,
both the halves...

I walk into the room and I see a thunderstorm coming
Because I see you’re angry and you know I’m there.
You start shooting at me your spiteful words
And I start crying, but you don’t really care.
I walk out knowing you’re the bad guy of this movie,
But you’re so good at putting up a pity show.
It is always the excuse of what you’ve been through
When you say you’re sorry f...

Unrequited love is the destruction of the heart
It is walking across an endless desert occupied with faded mirages that show you beauty like never before
Constantly consumed by its wonder, constantly consumed by the despair for your love for it
She is the mirage, you are the lonley aching fool in an endless desert
You are the one slowly suffocating by the boundless intesity of what you...

How can I trust you if I don't even trust myself?
Do you know how hard it is to keep the demons at bay
And know that they'll never go away?
How do I know that you won't get hurt?
I try to keep them away, I really do,
Because there's so much I can lose.
I try to keep them to myself,
But they refuse to be put on a shelf.
They claw and they fight
Just so they can see the li...

You're all I see
You're all I breath
You're all I feel
And all I need
Every morning I wake
You're the pain I receive
Love is such a damned word
But baby please come back to me

She is silent.
She is the breeze through the trees.
She is the moisture in the air.
She is the pause before a first kiss.
Her hands reach into me.
Pulling my insides out--
Putting my heart on display.
"Does this beat for me?"
She is temptation.
She licks her lips at the sight
of my blood on her hands.
Her eyes meet mine,
I am her puppet.
My mind does not...

There is a war rallied between our hearts:
some people say love,
other people play love.
But when life becomes a game,
when words can only be spoken by characters,
when breath can only be projected by theatre
then I lose myself...so you lose me....and I risk losing you....
And the curtains fall shut -
And the dice stops rolling -
We lost the bet.

My inner voice
More than just an uncomfortable thought
a enemy to myself and my peers
self destructing thoughts
relationship crushing voice
jealousy when there should be none
“I love you” but “I hate you”
The voice that tells me to live my life
The voice that tells me to end it
The voice that I can’t escape
The voice that I create
I’m not sure how much ...

It cuts deep within,
Its' touch gentle and soft.
It barks and howls,
Its' voice lovely and calm.
Its' thoughts are demeaning,
Its' love unconditional.
Its' presence a weight,
Pride churned in the ridicule.
It beats you to your knees,
But your kneecaps don't agree.
You stand on your feet,
While the blades stab in deep.
The scars show malformity,
Yet the face shows ever delight.

Why is my heart indigo?
What could have been became what could have been
All else failed and crimson became me
Was not acquainted with lost before I meet you.
Could not imagine this disdain that inhabits me before I lost you
Felt your warmth from her warmth
Kissed your cheeks through her skin
You gave me life then lost yours living me at indigo
Living me at this cold empty ...

Come one step closer
that's all I ask
Just close enough for me to Reach
Touch, and Experience
your foreign, yet familiar face,
Recalling unique sensations,
I fight for the part of you
that is mine...
Cease your frolicsome avoidance of
God's creation behind concrete walls
that overshadow desolate, bar...

I think I’m addicted to acting the way,
Behaving the way,
No, I never meant to-
No, I never intended to-
didn’t set out to break your heart
I think that it came naturally to me...
Snapping those heart strings it’s what
It’s what I’ve always done best.
Affection is a weapon they say,
Charm is a murderer they say,
The blood you lose...

Some people hold on to memories they never had and feelings they never felt, just to justify their existence. To all of them I say: cry when u have to, and leave depression to those with wounded souls.

Was feeling emotionl and wrote this, it felt good.
When your thoughts run away with you,
The thoughts of what could have been run from you,
Regrets, false memories just out of reach,
The power of imagination is pain,
The power of emotion pushed us to change.
