Silent


On a night such as this
Cold
Dark
Damp

I regress
I reflect
I neglect

Regress in thoughts
Reflect back to the past
Neglect the present

On this night
Like every other

Solitary
Confined
Trapped

Solitary by choice
Confined by life
Trapped within my own dark mind

On a night such as this
Cold
Dark
Damp

I
Shunned by some
Understood by only one

Sit alone
Pondering
A wry smile crossing

Embracing
No longer denying
My anxiety
My solitude

My silent darkness that consumes…

Contradiction


Clock strikes
Light flickers
Energy burned

Pain and tears
Wandering in darkness
Broken beyond repair

Thinking
Twisting
Turning
Mind all a mess

Longing to hold
Fearful to touch
Mixed emotions
Eons ago became too much

Conflicted inside
For somehow
If I managed a smile
I might just miss all this twisted agony

Suicide thoughts
As common as breathing

The burning in my chest ironically carries me
Spurs me
Wills me
Keeps me going

Alive but dead
I hate what I have become

Mixed up
Wound up
Lost within

Almost happy
Then crashing again

I long to break from this shell
But don’t think I could handle less stress

So here I will just be

Confused
Contradicted
Slightly angry
And mostly depressed…

Secrets


Secrets kept
Never to be let out

Fantasies played
Dirty dirty little things

Sweating bodies
Grinding flesh

Raking nails
Bites
Screams moans and giggles

Exploring
Devouring

Ropes
Whips
Wicked red lips

Secrets hidden
Locked behind closed doors

Twisted sheets
Broken vows

Going long
Going hard
Leaving no regrets

Shaking
Tangled

Smiling
Resting for more

Secretly…
Gently…
Just holding you in my arms…

Transformed


Inspiration sometimes comes from the strangest places. Plunge cut remove from an infomercial at 3am sent me scrambling for my pen and notebook.
I think I owe my muse a beer for this one 🙂

Heart
Torn out

Home surgery
Basic tools

Hands
Knife

Swift
Sharp

Simple action

Plunge
Cut
Remove

Cursed
Not needed
Cause of weakness

Pulled out
Thrown down

Stomped
Kicked into a hole

Buried deep
Never to be found

Starting over
Now completely heartless

Icy
Frozen
Demonic

Flying low
Intent on destruction

A predator
A user
A murderer

Reaper
Collector
Stone cold killer

Tables turned

No longer the victim…

On Wings


Locked in a cage
Trapped in a tower

Hidden away
Darkness reigning

Safe from the world
High above all its pain

Never venturing
Afraid to stray

Bound
Chained
Self imposed exile

Fearful
Trapped
Imprisoned within my mind

Wings of black
Terror inside

Darkness never-ending
Pain never leaving

Tonight no fear
A new beginning

Risen from crawling
Standing strong on unstable feet

On the ledge
Finally the courage

A leap of faith
A test of strength

Breaking free
Soon to soar on wings of white

Thank you
