My mind is awake
it never sleeps
Keeps me awake at night
and in the day, weak

I can't control
where it goes
My morbid thought
only my mind knows

The messed up things
I like to do
I turn my heart off
when I go through

the things I drink
The things I take
the happiness
I try to create

My bleeding nose
My darkened eyes
Hide my apathy
Behind lies

The edge of cliff
way past the line
and no one can save me from me
this time.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this last year for a friend of the family. rip.

Dream or Reality

Burn in hell with me, the sky smells of death-
laid to rest in a bath of blood.
I close my eyes as the light fades-,
now awake in a world filled with blight-,
not a living thing in sight!
The embers of the once known world glowing bright-,
somehow it still feels right.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I don't have much confidence in my poetry but these are just things i wind up writing down when the mood strikes.

Despise me

Sometimes I speak venom, sometimes I am unkind.
Sometimes I betray you, sometimes I am blind.
Sometimes I will beat you, Sometimes I will make you cry.
Sometimes you will hate me, Sometimes I will lie.
By my actions you shall shatter, by my will you shall die.

I feel my skin, my crawling flesh,
A smell so sweet, a touch too soft,
A hand too meagre, a foot too delicate,
A pain deep within, a fire inside,
But hollow and empty, drained to the core.

My heart is wrenching, falling apart,
Cheekbones to bright, a jaw not square,
A voice too sharp, the sound of despair,
Being pulled in all directions, waning to die,
My bones in the wrong order, body curved not flat,
The agony on my chest, the grimace between my legs.

Not being seen right, trying to scream,
Breaking my heart, as they look away,
No attraction, not even existing,
I am one of them, as if they care,
My dominance succumbs me, but my lack of tools declare.

My need screeching, my rejection answering,
Dreaming of pressing our bodies together, mine fitting wrong,
Our hands as one, a connection denied,
A life out of touch, a soul locked away,
Being unwanted, ignored even hated,
Being born in the wrong body, being told not to live.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

A poem about being born into the wrong body.

No Right

my fucked up head

Who gave you the right to break me all over again
One sentence out of those lips of yours have me falling apart
How is it that you still have this power over me
What right do i have to feel this for you
Why cant i just let you go
Whats so fucken special about you
Its not fair for me to still cry over this never meant to be love
Who gave you the right to break me?!?
I never understood why i hated you at first sight!
But i guess my heart knew it would be you that would break it apart
Fuck you!! You have no right!!
Fuck you!!!
I hate you so much,
Its not here on my knees not sure why you have this power over me...
The sick fucken part about this is ... I dont want you back...
I know i dont need you,
Yet you make me break down and ask why...
Why was i never good enough...
What is it that i could never give you...
I love you so much that i fucken hate you more than anything...

These frightening waves
Over the rocks
As I stand
Among them.
Their spirits
By their repetitive
I will not be
Like them.

Brotherly Betrayal

I took my foot and kicked her out the door.
My wife decided not to be faithful anymore.
It really shocked and upset me when she took a lover.
I was enraged when I learned that it was my brother.
I treated her really good, just like a queen.
What those two did to me was obscene.
I wasn't just betrayed by one loved one, I was betrayed by two.
Packing her bags and kicking her out was something I had to do.
Now she and my brother are expecting a child.
When I think of it, I see red and nearly go wild.
My nephew will be a symbol of how I was betrayed.
I can't stand to live near them, I'm going to move away.
What those two did to me was a horrible sin.
When I leave, I never want to see them again.

101 in 1001

You know what
Fuck it all
Make it all


Seeping down into my soul

I can't
I can't take
I can't take anymore

I want
I want to
I want to be
I want to be happy


Author's Notes/Comments: 

Hoo boy, angry poem is angry.

But, you know, poems such as this are so cathartic.

The Cage

Trapped deep within
The cage
Of her mind
Is a creature that longs to
Be set free.

It howls and
It rages,
It screams and
It cries
For the freedom it shall never be granted,
For it is trapped deep within
The cage
Of her mind.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Hmmm..... Not sure about this one.
