• vanikey commented on the post, answer 2 years ago

    answers without questions
    yes, no, maybe so
    this, that, there, or then
    (not sure when)
    here, there, anywhere
    yesterday, tomorrow, today
    i’m (not) okay

  • vanikey commented on the post, persistent 2 years, 2 months ago

    lingering always [deep in my chest]
    for all my days [there is no best]
    through the haze [an anxious guest]
    time delays [feeling possessed]
    persistent strays [healing, depressed]

  • vanikey commented on the post, moonlit 2 years, 2 months ago

    a moonlit misfit sitting underneath the stars
    dont know where you are
    bugs buzz blindly bumbling by
    you think you can fly
    the night sky calls
    your body falls
    in the dull light of the moon
    on a warm night in june

  • vanikey commented on the post, mermaid 2 years, 2 months ago

    maid of the sea
    away with me
    strong current carrying
    lives need burying
    luck, good or bad
    the only kiss ever had
    air currents gone
    the sky at dawn
    last sight
    no light
    deeper and deeper below
    here we go

  • vanikey commented on the post, switch 2 years, 2 months ago

    a glitch
    made us switch
    not sure how to ditch
    eyes twitch
    all thoughts a black pitch
    there is no easy way to snitch
    blame it on the witch
    if only fates could unhitch
    that’d be real rich

  • vanikey commented on the post, erase 2 years, 2 months ago

    each time i try to write i end up erasing anything and everything i type
    it’s not good enough anymore (when was it ever though?)
    there’s no point in it really
    it used to be fun but now i always end up doubtful
    i wish i could erase these thoughts as easily
    i wish i could erase myself as easily

  • vanikey commented on the post, witchcraft 2 years, 2 months ago

    it is not the flick of the wrist or boasting a loud cackle, it is a belief, a lifestyle. a belief that the impossible is still impossible no matter the mixtures concocted. however, it all depends on what one’s interpretation of the word “impossible” is exactly. a lifestyle still in practice today. don’t listen to stories or legends, just blink…[Read more]

  • vanikey commented on the post, masked 2 years, 2 months ago

    in a world of our own we dance until the sun sets, cheering slightly, smiling playfully. bleeding red all over the sky, the sun sinks into the horizon. the moon shines a dull pale, casting shadows sweetly. the mask of day falls, charade ending swiftly.
    there are no more smiles here, not until the sun reaches up slowly, crawling up, up, and away.…[Read more]

  • vanikey commented on the post, freeze 2 years, 2 months ago

    freeze the frame, pause it
    keep it dead inside
    trapped gazes, mannequins
    an eternal stand-still
    for us to gaze upon in wonderment
    they no longer breathe
    no longer have a reason to
    they are frozen
    entertain the masses

  • vanikey commented on the post, loading 2 years, 3 months ago

    watch the bar spin around and around
    your eyes trapped, bound
    not sure how you got here
    don’t know how to disappear
    wasting life away
    just for one more day
    keep on suffering
    the end is buffering

  • vanikey commented on the post, recover 2 years, 3 months ago

    there is no recovering from this
    this poison that has stayed with me since a fateful day
    a fateful day i cannot remember
    cannot remember truly being happy
    happy with life, with myself, with anything
    anything can change apparently
    apparently except getting away from there
    there is no recovering from this
    this pain, this sadness, this…[Read more]

  • vanikey commented on the post, wealth 2 years, 3 months ago

    keep your wealth
    drain their health
    who needs to breathe
    let the people seethe
    dance to the sound of coins dropping
    no need to go shopping
    save it all for yourself
    cash on every shelf

  • vanikey commented on the post, stagnation 2 years, 3 months ago

    unaware of its’ creation
    you have fallen into stagnation
    there is no determined duration
    nor a single causation
    what a sad location
    possessing no sensation

  • vanikey commented on the post, signs 2 years, 3 months ago

    numerous signs dictate who you are
    following the imaginary lines of the star
    lift yourself off the ground
    there is no one else around
    reach for the brightest star
    it really isn’t all that far
    a crab in the sky
    wave the world goodbye

  • vanikey commented on the post, individual 2 years, 3 months ago

    threads tied in a knot
    connected loosely, caught
    bonds break, snapping silently
    an attack in the night, almost violently
    alone again (at last)
    relationships (a thing of the past)
    this moment is pivotal
    become an individual

  • vanikey commented on the post, banker 2 years, 3 months ago

    dear banker
    this world has gone to shit
    what ever shall we do
    falling deeper into this pit
    an entire year to rue

  • vanikey commented on the post, rested 2 years, 3 months ago

    movements ceased
    thoughts decreased
    heart-rate low
    breathing slow
    life is bested
    death has rested

  • vanikey commented on the post, everlasting 2 years, 3 months ago

    As the sky fades to grey
    The sights cease to be interesting
    Clouds puff up, brave and strong
    You fall to the ground, dead
    Everlasting sleep
    Forevermore

  • vanikey commented on the post, proof 2 years, 3 months ago

    bleeding out on crisp paper one autumn afternoon
    half-laying on the table, you let yourself bleed out over the table-top
    it’s the only proof that you were here in the end
    (your body fades
    the blood stains
    the mess you’ve made
    is all that remains)

  • vanikey commented on the post, continued 2 years, 3 months ago

    you thought that the world would have come crashing down after this moment, after those words departed from your lips. you thought that time would have frozen utterly and completely, space ripping apart at the seams. yet, there was nothing. life continued on just as it had, a soft breeze swirling the leaves on the sidewalk where they once stood.
