As I Slip


Slipping from this world into another

Into land of darkness doom and dispair

Falling hopelessly

Unwillingly

Everything beginning to spin and spiral out of control

Wires crossed

Communications down

A cloak of black now covering my soul

Creeping

Crawling

Suffocating every inch of my being

Dragging me under

Pulling me down

Leaving me for dead

But as I slip from this world into another

And as my smile fades

I look back

I remember

I shudder

And I prepare myself for another round of depression…

Burn Me


What happened?
Did you tire?
Become board?
Run out of games to play?

Why do I ask the question?
I already know the answer

It’s the one where you promise never to leave
Then without warning
The smell of gas
The striking of a match
A slight giggle as you turn your back

And then poof…up in flames I go…

I Want


I want to drink with you

Dine with you

Inhale you

Devour your scent

Meld our two souls into one

I become you

You become me

Bonded into one being

No lines

No separation

Only one heartbeat

I want to shout with you

From the roof tops

Our happiness

Our joy…

But alas…

I cannot

For you are only a figment of my imagination

And true love does not exist…

Dear Reader


Dear reader

May I have your attention?

Please

Please sit down

Relax

This may take a while

I have something burning a hole in my skull

A secret oh so long I have kept

Swearing never to tell

For night upon night

Day after day

I kept this hidden

Locked away in a dark damp space

Away from light

Hidden from prying eyes

Left for dead

Nobody the wiser

Now dear reader that I have your attention

Your eyes will glaze!

Your jaw will drop!

You will be in awe!

Pass out from completely from shock!

So here it goes

Drum roll please
