The Show Must Go On

They saved us. They saved us when no one could, they gave us the will to carry on and on, giving up was never an option. Told us that, though our make-up may be flaking, our smile cannot fade. That life is more than our present state of mind. That too much love can kill…

The Forsaken Few

Blackened bloodstains on white cloth, illuminated barely by breaking dawn. True crime desperately hidden, under the wraps of cannibalistic time. Travelers in the desert sun, throats raw trying to seek a pilgrim saint, scratching each other soon the brains shall melt into sand. Lucifer save my life, you burn bright in cold fires of hell,…

What Wants Me Dead

The last time I wanted to kill myself, I was sure I would. I still am. I still am sure that I would kill myself, the moment I want to enough. There will come a moment where the competing noises clamouring for center stage, an open mic event free of registration, where the one who…

The Psychopath in Me

The darker side of my mind, closed with no access, no free passes, no VIPs, you'll never know what hit you, when you find, what's in that part of my mind. When you walk into a black hole, you can't help but transform into a part of it. People are black holes, and I, a…

How to Spell CONSENT

I think a lesson we forget to teach our younger generations is one we don't inherently believe in. "Your body and mind is yours and yours alone." How hard is this simple principle to understand? Generations of social conditioning worth of hard. We have always been told, that our mind was one to be molded,…

Embrace

I am a ship, a ghost ship. I am empty, my anchor rusted, I float aimlessly, from sea to sea. I have seen every ocean, but I haven't seen any shore. I feel hollow, but my creaking iron is all I have to accompany my tiresome destination-less journey. But then I meet an island, an…

Your Faith in Me

I've scratched my heart and raped my soul, the damp hollowness has taken its toll, I don't think I can be again, one part of a bigger whole. I've dreamed of death and feared all fear, I've pushed them far and held them near, down my throat goes the blade, as I swallow salty distressed…

Everything is Fine

It all seems perfect until you want to kill yourself. It's all peachy, rainbows, unicorns and puppies, until the facade collapses, until your faults eclipse anything else that may redeem you. When you want it to be perfect and the imperfections are too many, too many to count, too many to take. When you get…

To You

Dear friend who is a bit more, let us just be.... stupid. Let us walk into darkness and light without thinking so much. Let us not burden our tiny heads with knowledge, information, intelligence. When we think, you and I, we have a tsunami of different feelings a thousand waves in a thousand directions, so…

A Picture

Paint me a picture. That is all I ask anyone who wants me to fall for them. Paint me a picture. I know it is a strange request, but stay with me, and I'll explain. I want you to pain me a picture I have never seen, not just me, but the world has never…
