persistent

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]

moonlit

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

mermaid

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

switch

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

erase

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

witchcraft

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 your eyes and keep an open mind. watch carefully with wide eyes.

masked

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.
the truth revealed.

freeze

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

loading

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

recover

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 depression that plagues me now and always
forevermore

wealth

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

stagnation

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

signs

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

individual

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

banker

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

rested

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

everlasting

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

proof

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)

continued

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.

specific

there is nothing specific draining me. you think that today i would be happy. so many good things happened recently yet i feel empty. i do not understand, i have been doing so well with this sort of thing as of late. i do not want it to come back. not again.
(but it always does).

lift

right here right now
im not sure what this is all about
but my heart is beating proudly
the haze has lifted from my eyes momentarily
and i can only sit here
wondering why
life is ok for me
right here right now
yeah, this is alright

thieves

the world abandoned them before they even had a chance to live. stalking shadows, holding remnants of stars in their eyes, they were weak with rage. the universe had given them everything and taken it away in an instant, what else were they to do? try to cope with the mockery the world had made of them? no. they were going to take back what they deserved, what should’ve been.
it was only fair.

institute

white walls, blank faces, scratching nails, loose laces
smile softly, but wide, bright teeth blinding your eye
there is a purpose for a place such as these
to hold the “fragile, weak, and fatigued”

iron

an iron hand wrapped around her throat in the comfort of her own bed.
she could not move, her body numb and trembling.
the intruder sat on top of her, static willingly.
this should pass.
it will stop eventually.
it has to.
it has to.

dawn

dawn of a new day, take me away (from this place)
(this place of uncertainty and dishonesty, this place of fear and propriety)
awakening

vase

it was always difficult to find one at home.they were always in the same place, but that place was frequently forgotten. there were plenty of them, they were just not where one would expect. under cabinets, tucked away on shelves, displayed openly (which were obviously the easiest to find). now there is no where that one would think to look for one. this place is supposed to be close, yet there is only a distance felt. there are no vases here, simple to find or not.

fractured

see that beating thing there, pick it up, play your part.
oh honey, you can’t heal the fractured wounds of a broken heart.
the way the little pieces crumble again and again, it’s art.
watch them all fall apart.

haunt

there are words that haunt me, floating around in my own head. i know they are not real, not anymore. they exist in the past and the possible future. still, they lurk around in the peripheral and flicker in the light. i feel them watching me, waiting to call out in their harsh tones. no one else sees them though, not in the same way.

slideshow

a word that brings forth memories of school presentations and projects. a time in my life that made me cringe, cry, and suppress the urge to vomit. as i got older it got better, but that was only through actual practice. i may no longer scratch my skin uncontrollably upon having to present, but i still shake violently afterward. the tears never come anymore. things look up, slowly.
