    the light
    the sun shone on my back
    bringing warmth
    and i ran
    faster and faster
    until i could barely breathe
    but the freedom
    it pulled me in
    like a moth to light
    and i could not
    would not
    stop
    chasing it

    i’m making my way through the labyrinth, but i’m not even lost. i’m just coming up on a lot of dead ends.

  • Em commented on the post, punished 6 years, 6 months ago

    when people think
    punishment
    they think darkness
    they think pain
    they think misunderstood

    when i think
    punishment
    i think light
    i think joy
    i think being understood

    because who can really define something
    so difficult to understand?

  • Em commented on the post, punished 6 years, 6 months ago

    sometimes i wonder if punishments really help anything.

    people kill
    and steal
    and sin

    but punishing them
    does that really help?

    if you are a sinner
    will you ever stop sinning?

    of course not. it’s ridiculous
    to think that you would.

    so maybe there’s a better way
    maybe instead of punishing
    we should be helping
    like a…[Read more]

    she thought she deserved it
    she had no one to go to
    she was along
    (or so it seemed)
    so she punished herself

    the lights were gone
    it was all dark
    all dark matter
    was it an illusion?
    science says otherwise
    but that doesn’t mean
    that myths are fake

    you can love life
    and still think
    you deserve
    something horrible
    because no one can…[Read more]

  • Em commented on the post, rainy 7 years, 6 months ago

    rain.
    life as a
    downpour
    gray
    watchful.
    just a storm
    but really it’s more.
    and i can’t seem
    to find
    the strength
    to keep going.

  • Em commented on the post, pageant 7 years, 7 months ago

    move quickly,
    dance
    with your small arms.
    watch as sparkles
    cry out,
    you have won.
    small faces
    are beauties to behold.
    the pageant
    that you cried.

  • Em commented on the post, torch 7 years, 7 months ago

    don’t you remember
    what we used to be?
    you were mine,
    your skin
    your lips
    so soft.
    we spent hours
    living in memories.
    but you put it all out
    with one single torch.
    burned my eyes,
    now they’re black
    alone
    empty.

    love this, how i can just not think. i can write. thrown into oblivion for sixty seconds, not knowing who i am, and then it’s over.

  • Em commented on the post, staple 7 years, 7 months ago

    staple,
    keeps together
    only papers,
    small snippets.
    nothing like
    life messed up
    mistakes made.
    wake up in the night,
    calling for the one
    you accidentally killed,
    knowing you will never
    get her […]
