BALLOON

Balloon

Yesterday I was a helium filled balloon all sassy and metallic..outstanding

Full bright and shiny

High but grounded

Celebrating life

Then out of nowhere to my dispare

Deflated as I was popped with a sharp pin

Now just a empty lifeless saggy bag

Thanks for that

I feel alone

i feel alone

in a world where i am surrounded 

i am claustrophobic 

suffocated

by those around me

yet i am alone

 

another person is shoved down my throat

my numbers build up

i smile and wave 

make mistakes

be told it’s ok

but i am alone

 

i am hugged and reminded that i am loved

something that i know

others wish for

i receive greetings

Arrows of Rain

To hang on a wall of my empty room,

I think I will need a picture of rain.

 

Hitting the ground, and springing up to ankles,

Rain wets the socks and trousers from below.

 

My eyes chase along

Roof-edges, streets, sidewalks,

 

--tick, tick, tick--

 

Checking all, one by one,

To find a dark brolly,

 

And a woman in black enamel shoes,

Lightly treading the...

Empty

Hello, can anyone hear me?

Hello, are you still there listening to my cries?

Listening to me as I fall on my knees, feeling so empty as this world falls apart

Hello, God! I need you! We all need you!

Our world slowly falls and we all begin to feel empty wanting human contact, human touch

God silently watches us and our empty lonely hearts

Waiting, quietly, for us all to call his ...

Anticlimactic

I know I traded something

A part of me

For the splendid splendour of money

I did that thing you shouldn’t do

I gave myself to him

You know, the soul

Cut a piece of myself out for him

You know, the heart

I cut a piece of myself off for him

(You know which part)

But I didn't feel a thing

I'm waiting to miss it

Miss this

Thing

I'm waiting for the pain

You...

Outside of Herself

"Find yourself"

You can misplace your mind

But

You can't forfeit your mind

When you've built a fort for your mind

Mine is bulletproof,

Double-glazed,

Soundproof,

In here

I can stay outside of myself

I can step outside of the world

Oops

Yesterday,

I watched us having a conversation

From my window panes

Through the heavy glaze

It made me feel some type...

Ghost

 

I’m a ghost in this house, 

Someone forgot to open the windows to let me out of here. 

I search for an exit every second I can. 

If someone could just help me, help me break out. 

I don’t get it, 

Why’d they leave me here.. 

These fucking rooms don’t hold my secrets anymore, 

They’re on the table for everyone to see when they come to visit this empty house, 

Your memor...

Addiction Spell

A desire stronger than the weight of the world, nothing in life matters more than the intake of poison, fogged mind and clouded vision,

Tell Me What's Love Compared To Addiction

controlled by controlled substance your own worst enemy living physically but empty mentally,

Happiness Depleted Unless Using Of Course My Best Friend Is My Drug Of Choice

Broken

It's been broken so many times

I began to lose pieces that I thought were all mine

I'm in so deep and the void is so empty

So lost for words, but I don't want sympathy

 

Holding this heart with my bare hands

Please just take it...I don't understand

Time brought these wounds, yet they're not healed

Permanent scars have left them sealed

 

I'm scared of being alone and s...

Take a Penny, Leave a Scar.

I'm just a number,
Put me in the back.
One of these days,
I swear I'll fucking snap.

Always keeping it in,
Forever pushing it down.
One day I'll strike this match
And burn this place to the ground.

Empathy is a curse,
A color I wear well.
I'm sick of always wondering
How other people feel.

I don't take care of myself,
I just bury my own bone.
I'm always there for everyone
But I'm al...

Clink

 

Piercing poles of what shattered in abruptness
Has a bit of touch to it.
Strange things with glasses, I tell you.

Wicked Game

I lost
In the wicked game we played;
The distorted rules we make,
The empty words we say,
And the goodbyes in the end of May;


I lost
The lies of February's promise;
And the man I want to love.
Cruel honesty that got us in the beginning, and the only thing that's left for us in the end.


By June, a threat of winter's cold;
It wasn't even close to turn our hearts to stone
A teared hear...

The one that got away

Thinking about her everyday

If she knew what would she say

Beautiful memories will remain

A past that is without stain

 

Remember the times we had together

They will always be my secret treasure

Under the darkness of daylight

You and I always felt right

 

The excitement I lived was real

Don’t know if my heart can heal

I know that time moves on

From yesterday ...

Always the same....

Everyday for her is always the same.
All the struggles, all the pain,
all the hurtful words, and all the pressure
to be someone, and to be something.

And each day she wakes
to feel the hurt again, as it never changes.
And each day she breathes to longer her stay
no matter how much she wants to leave.
And each day she eats to feel whole and to not feel empty
like the way she feels about he...

the empty bus that used to bring you home

the empty armchair

the empty bed.

 

the empty tears

discovering

the empty perfume bottle

that they could fill

 

the empty dreams

the empty vows

the empty promises

to empty children

 

empty politicians

with their empty lies

of empty threats

from WOMD

just empty rooms

Empty century

Stay with me boy we gonna

run tonight

like flies do run

burning after touching the light bulb

 

stay with me, 'cause  it's an empty and sad little century

i might have tears in my eyes

but i don't wanna see

just don't want to see

 

Right on time

pain arrived

why would we

stroll apart?

 

Walk with me now we never

had any time

Nap Nap


Some days I think,
And those are always
The worst days.
 
Life; the sigh
Hanging from
My slack jaw,
 
Dribbling myself into
A pillow, hoping
I make a good pool.
 
Waking up wet,
Mid-day sun shines
Through the curtains
 
And the grass outside
Sobs when I ruffle
