    baby swinging high in your tree top,
    tiny fingers dangling from between the bars,
    a twitch and drip,
    liquid rubies spattered across the yard,
    as you sway in the breeze,
    rocked by whispering lullabies,
    into a sleep as dark as your mind

    so here we stand
    in highs and lows
    of every mind
    connected with strands
    of memories known
    and long forgotten
    in crowded rooms
    and clouds so high
    never to touch
    or find each other

    Step out and revel under eternal beauty and allow your mind to be washed in memories. From times of crippling deaths and messy first kisses.
    Feel the cool within your every cell. The tears trailing along your skin in tracks of glistening purity. That salty swipe of a tongue to moisten rosy lips with every gasp for air that clouds before your eyes.

  • Ali commented on the post, signals 6 years, 7 months ago

    watch me as I fall apart and put myself back together
    with you, the un-suspecting spectator of my demise.
    pass over smiles and “I’m fine”s as I plan the final stage
    and bare my heart upon a sheet of paper for all to see.
    tell me all that is on your mind, your every wish and promise
    for I will keep them close and take them to my grave,
    and…[Read more]

    Lick my flesh and ignite my heart, burning bright as summer days, as we know that you are innocent like midnight oceans. But one day you will burn brighter than any star and turn all that I am into ashes, billowing out in the wind in search of a new home.

  • Ali commented on the post, lamb 6 years, 7 months ago

    There they graze
    In fields of green,
    Unsuspectingly,
    In wait for their day.
    The day when they are lead
    In line like soldiers
    To the shack of their final day.
    Lambs for Slaughter.

    I let my fingers dance across every petal and leaf within my reach, watching as they flutter in the end, only stilled by the presence of fingertips. Warmth trickles across my flesh, slowly heating only to cool quickly as a breeze ruffles the foliage high above my head and blokes the sun for a moment. Stretching, I pluck a bud from it’s home and…[Read more]

    Ribcages wrapped in barbed wire scrape and cut with every pound of flesh. A heart trapped within a body; prisoner to that which the mind feels.
    For pain is more real than anything else upon this planet, and it demands to be felt.

  • Ali commented on the post, sentenced 6 years, 7 months ago

    Clenching my eyes shut for a few seconds I wearily open my eyes only to be blinded by light. A quiet groan of pain leaves my cracked lips. Feeling a light brush against my wrist I attempt to open my eyes again and find that the room has been bathed in a graceful darkness. A man in white stands before me, hand lightly pressed against the bandages…[Read more]

    Knock, knock, knock upon a heart
    And be met by metal clangs

    Brick walls built high and strong
    That forever will deny you

    For never will you reach
    This pearl within its clam

    For as long as they shall live
    Upon earth so appalling

  • Ali commented on the post, bleeding 6 years, 7 months ago

    For every word that falls from your mouth another needle pierces my heart and draws the life from within me. A bloodless heart for as you poke and prod it drips along its casing and seeps throughout my core, slowly killing me from the inside out.

  • Ali commented on the post, startled 6 years, 7 months ago

    raised flesh
    along every surface
    like feathers plucked.
    heave of air
    and crystals clear
    as pounding flesh
    in blues and greens
    to tempos fierce
    are frightful.

  • Ali commented on the post, embellish 6 years, 7 months ago

    Slowly dragging a blade across supple skin I pierce and carve, red flowing freely down the curves of her bones. A twirl and subtle flick finish the masterpiece set deep within her flesh and I grab a damp cloth from the bucket at my feet and wipe away the blood. Slowly a delicate rose is revealed upon her shoulder blade.

  • Ali commented on the post, cave 6 years, 7 months ago

    Muscles strain and bulge against a plush winter coat. A grunt escapes my chapped lips as I swing my arm and slam the ice pick deep into frozen water and heave myself up over the edge. Falling down onto my back I allow my muscles to relax and a smile to spread across my face as I watch the light play off the ice surrounding me, glittering like…[Read more]

    Cars lined for miles upon a stretch of charcoal heating with every minute as the sun bares down upon them and the fumes cause the air to boil. Radio stations flicker, thousands of different tunes and voices fluttering throughout the air as people play with various dials in the attempts to settle the stifling heat within their car.
