Do.RoThy on Let me in (Fri, 20 Dec 2019 02:37 pm)
Ignorance is bliss, so the elders might say
Yet why does the heart clench in anguish
The stomach turns in to a knotted pit
Swallowing doubts into a heaping mess
Painting a picture of peace, of innocence
Only to cover the hideous truth underneath
Why cant one accept that their sins hold weight
Burdening them with a false sense of happiness
Later, to be struck with a spe...

I give a shy smile, a nod to acknowledge,
never allowing the world to see the ache
I laugh, a monotone ring to deaf ears,
denying the morose life that I lead
I wear a mask of many features, proudly
Actress of the year, accepting a false trophy
Hidden is the disgust that I hold against ignorance,
believing that no one could see the true me
Without notice, the stres...

Parched lands, and torrid heat.
The arid ground has been devoid of life for an eternity.
The only thing left is distant and damaged memories.
Scorched trees and dead river beds.
The remnants left, scarcely tell the story of what used to be
but there hardly seems a point in reminiscing,
for this is all there will seem to be.
The sun is deafening, the...

It creeps into the veins, taking root,
the dread seeps into the very bone
Fear takes hold, latching on tight,
pain into your very being is sown
Scarlet wings spread against pristine tile,
an icy grip clenches around your heart
A dark shadow looms close above,
A scythe strikes tearing your soul apart
Pulled in by burning chains, you fall,
the smell of brimstone ...

Can we really see all that is before us,
or just a blurry image of possible lies?
Can we feel what we want?
or is our judgment too unclear?
Can we taste, hear, sense what is right there,
or is the devil's mark obscuring our view?
We allow others to hide our sight slightly
Not seeing what we want,
but what the world wants us to assume
Can we rid our self of these blind folds?
Can we as hu...

Sitting in silence, thoughts run wild
it's the screaming I can't unhear
' You're unwanted' ' you're disgusting'
upon my shatered heart, it's seared
No escape from this cage of doubt
now only crimison tears will pour
Fighting against this inner demon
bloody scratch marks cover the door
Like a lonely child hiding from monsters
I curl up in my lonely bed
Wishing for a sanctuary of peace

Upon my road lie yellow chrysanthemums,
their cruel beauty smiled down on me
Pulling broken limbs along shards of glass,
scarlet trails are the marks I bleed
Stalking not far behind, it hungers
The ghost of my past that hates change
Fearing the chains that once bound me
I aching increase my solemn pace
Even After being lost in webs of torn trust
and lies heape...

I see you
The scars that you hide under that smile,
the struggles that seep through your pores
Even as your strength depletes midair,
like a warrior angel, upon broken wings, you soar
I see you
Your inner battles as they strike at your might,
you beat back the demons that attack
Keeping us safe through the worse of the storm,
never allowing us to peek at t...

There are no Holy rains to wash away the filth
Too many reaching flames lying deep within
No prayer to pray or star to shine
To clean the world’s stain of mortal sin
My own pristine wings, they’re corrupted,
weighting as if I carry a thousand boats
Demon dancing about me, laughing,
pouring their poison down my parched throat
Far are the thoughts of any utopia,
only false masks that monste...

The surface in which she claws through
is but a mere inch of fragile glass
Spitting malicious words of doom,
trapped within a cage that won’t last
I play blind to this image she shows,
only wishing to never see truth
Fighting against her unfathomable will,
pretending to be deaf with obvious proof
She snickers at the tears that pour
for I’m too weak to such poison
Beating me down with sni...

In the tiny box buried deep, forgotten
Lays an abused and trampled girl
Curled upon her shattered heart
That lie no larger then a pearl
Only a burden, a sentient piece of trash
With dried cheeks streaked with pure salt
Dreaming of the warmth of being cherished
And never put at unreasonable fault
She merely wishes to be noticed
Craving to gain that vibrant gift ...

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Why is it that I see my fall?
This glassy surface shows me all
The me that wants out,
that constantly shouts
Little cuts, little slips
Bruises covering from head to toe
The little girl screaming "no!"
The whispers of a violent past,
all this shown through thick layered glass
Inside the icy prison; dark brown eyes g...

I was once a broken and abused soul,
allowing all who passed to judge me
Beaten down with fists and words,
this world's cruelty made me ugly
The pain to live upon this barren plain
made hell's doors a place of peace
Carrying on this demon-like existence,
I wished only for my heart to cease
However, a light was shone upon me,
it's very voice showed long lost hop...

With youth, we see through shades of white,
a pure canvas with which to paint a story
and as we grow, colors mix without us knowing
Soon we strive for personal glories
Mistakes are made, loss is unavoidable,
life throws a curveball a time or two
Each person has their own system in use
The word ‘perfection’ is proven untrue
Weaving together our faults and our pride...
