how are you today?
put on the coffee
and sit in silence
at first its semi-bearable
the words don’t scream at me too loud
our ghosts conversation hasn’t begun
but they have started to stare each other down
but throughout the day
as things go wrong
or rather, just go on
they whisper when i’m not watching
but soon enough, whole conversations are happening
your ghost is accus...

it's all a bit too much
the instant videos
the screaming polls
the nagging photos
social media seriously harms your mental health,
they say that but then they bully their friends
and post about their weekends
where they excluded others
knowing they'll see it
and Like it
not like it, of course, they'll hate it
a little more than themselves

so enjoy my own company.
when i don’t go from laptop to phone to smoke
the minutes between
the fact that no one
no one can know
that it is only me sitting in the wind
only me listening to this all
only me thinking this
and i’ll let them in when it’s dangerous
but aside from that
i have a best friend
who never leaves
and it’s me

this is my vow.
to the me that only I know.
I write. I write
and I never ever want to stop writing
it's the only way to communicate in the world I live in
where texts mean not what they say
but between the lines there's a phrase
depending on the amount of time between each one
it's the only clear thing
keeping me above water.
This is my p...

loneliness is addicting
once you see how peaceful it is
you’ll never want to face

as a talented kid,
there are two possible outcomes.
if you're pretty and skinny,
you can have it all,
the things quiet little boys in their pool of tears
that they swim in better than you,
wish they could have.
but alas, you're still a good swimmer
and you're pretty, remember
so now shine, shine, shine, shine
make your secret talent not so secret
be put ...

this is the last you’ll hear of me
okay no wait wait wait
the second last
wait okay no
this is the

it’s less dramatic when i change the inscription every minute
they don’t trust the boy who cries wolf three times a day

these golden years
seem more to be rustic
I’m a teenager
so where are the parties?
where are the long nights and adventures?
at the very least, where is the happiness?
if these are the golden years,
mine need some polishing
because they’ve lost their shine.

by the time I post this
it'll be 4am where I live
my friends from the party
are half asleep
drunkenley, we all whispered
about the meaning of life
I'm the only one
it would have stuck with

the thing i have to say that i think are important
and my thighs.
what are you insecure about?

*content warning - gore*
I always wonder how it is that a knife stabs so far in
causes so much damage
I tested it
took my scissors and thrust them into my stomach..
it caused a cute little poke
a dent in the skin, at most
maybe, instinct won't let me stab me
maybe I need a subject who doesn't have my nerves
But I don't w...

don’t tell me you’re sorry
until you’ve been in my body
until you have lay at midnight
noise-canceling thoughts and a sober mind
don’t apologize for the mess you made of me until one is made of you

I stare on down,
down the sinkhole
the gunk, hair and blood
it taunts my skin
caressed by lavender soap
smooth from scrubbing
a reminder of my dirty sin
I stare further down
down the patterned metal strainer
into the deep void, beyond black
god, that hair
the gross, gross hair
gagging up my insides

are you still missing them?
next sleepless night, sit on your kitchen floor
gaze at the moonlight, if you’re scared of the dark
don’t reach for a screen or a bottle
to document or improve the moment, to distract
just sit in it
the tranquil peace
feels like waking up in the morning and kissing them,
feels that tight bliss
except you’re all alone. look

don't push me away, she cries
don't do this alone
don't slip away and die, she asks
bring me down with you
it's too lonely down the bottom without her,
I must let them in
otherwise, the darkness goes on for infinity
and Satan's plan will win
Well, I must have been too late
because when I called out for her
she scowled at my open gate
and turned her back ...

you define me
an android waiting for command
what you say, goes
let me worship your words
like i do your feet
let me praise you
let every word that slips through my tongue
be of faith towards my god,
my god is no God
he is a man, she is a woman
every lover, my religion
i am a faithful disciple
who is defined by your feedback
am i awful?
am i t...

i know, i know
if i was to fall
(will you cry?)
at my funeral
but if that's
what it takes
for you to think of me, then
I guess, well I guess
it's time for me to leave.
but no matter how hard,
how very hard I try
I can't leave, to leave
to leave is to die
and I can't do that
my momma would cry
I don't know anymore

a tingle up the spine
a reminder that sensation goes beyond
what is in front of us
the eyes can only see so much
and the neck only swivel so far
too much space, too little view
to prove existence of a world
beyond this prison

what to do
if your actions
stem from external
what to do
when they aren't watching
how do full-time actors switch on and off like that?
how do they resign?
either they quit and get spat on,
or shoot up their veins and go off the rails.
i have some thinking to do...

the pain stays, the pain always stays
that's the funny thing about grief,
it is like taking the weight of the sorrows of the dead.
the sadness now trickled out of them and spread across their friends and families.
the pain doesn't end.
the pain is there when your friend gets the phone call,
as she drops her phone and screams, and rolls on the floor crying.
the pain conti...

The weight of a thousand suns and a million lives and every single lie told to every single hopeful attached lover/
It’s on this very chest and my ribs are long gone they cracked and left years ago /
So did you and your promises and your hopes to get me better/
So did your patience for a illness without symptom
Because to you //
Symptom is a sore leg/
But to me ...

there’s another world out there
with beings green and lanky
vibrating in the silence of dark matter
hiding in the corners of our satellites
one that transcends human knowledge and
exists in the shivering silence of space
where leader does not mean sadist
and brother does not mean enemy
there must be more -
must be a life-form ...

fill me up with cum
or drugs, smoke and rum
or let me use myself
not because i enjoy either
but because i deserve both
- i am a bad person

while watching the tv tell you to remain calm
it's scary, it's real, but, the economy is crashing, so pause everything
pause the life support and admissions
and DON'T PANIC
as you argue
as you breathe, the numbers rise
400, 401, 402
closed doors to near corpses.
how long will you be silent, huh?
will you speak up when it's your...

at your texts
are blue or white?
opened or recieved?
oh to be on the other side
to recieve these lonely paragraphs
and not send them
i'm so alone
and i am blue

i know you don’t care/i know it doesn’t matter/ i know these words are stupid/and i know nothing does anything. i know i’m only good/when i can have line breaks/i know this isn’t pretty but neither am i/ i know/ i know/ i know nothing / that’s all a man can know / a fool is he who thinks he has knowledge / a wise man is one who knows that he knows nothing / i am both / let me be a fool for you

will somebody love me? please? and not actually leave? not sneak out that back door after a month and act naive? i know this isn't the real world, but that doesn't mean i can't feel the pain. you promised to stay. how do i pull the knife from my stomach without bleeding out?!
Friday 13th March 2020 12:58 am
here i sit, again
venting with keys that
not a soul
will ever read,
that will idly hum for eternity
without exisitng ever
it's really pathetic
that i can't take pain
without turning into poetry
i can't even do it well
i miss you so much,
and it hurts
the worst part is that i...

the paper, thin but strong
the slightest tint from basic white to a character
the binding, so minuscule and fine but
tougher than nails
it is an art
an empty canvas
why must you paint it with
fixes, tips, and the next new thing
screaming at souls to improve
digging out their shame and self-consciousness
in order to sell
i came here to think
