Poem: Fearless Ascends

Hello Darkness, My Old Friend   I used to dread  Seeing you Used to hate The power you Held over me Twisting me From the inside out Letting me breathe Just enough So I remain conscious Of every pain and suffering   Yes, you wanted me To FEEL everything You pulled all the strings I was a mere puppet   I walked no further  Than my comfort zone I saw no more Than my little window In this prison ...

Poem: The Brilliant Carcass

No amount of concealer Will hide the bruises No foundation Will quite cover the pain No red lipstick Will match the blood Dripping from inside   In the asylum of mind There are battered walls Punctured by screams The cracks on windows Mirror the scars They will never heal They are wounds No one will see or hear   Do I look pretty? Am I thin enough? Will this make me desirable? Should I let ...

Poem: The Human Race

Turn off the screens, Watch the flow of dreams In each other's eyes. Shut down the devices, Touch life's most precious As they become memories  Most priceless. Silence the noise, But never the voice, Listen to the music Played from the heart, Songs of love irreplaceable.   What dreams may craft, How earth may move, As the day slips into night, We each are rightful stars Whose light made ...
