    Breathing fine I don’t know what reality is

    
My head under water 
I’m breathing fine 
Only thing I hear 
Is the sound of hell 
It’s killing me inside 
I’m breathing fine 
The direction isn’t clear
The beat of my heart 
Tearing me apart 
But I’m breathing fine 
Alone in a empty ocean...

    I don't even know if it is exactly poetry,

    it's more so just pretty sentences that I sometimes write.

    Bout Of Darkness

    Acrimonious and fragmented is this day Mislaid and secluded is thy love From the pitcher of sorrow I drink the liquid of my slow death. It pours through my soul, drenches my inner most anatomy and quiches my thirst for things unlawful and just. It puts out the flames that dance...

    The Collective Eye

    The Broken Mirror- Smash!

    The mirror I once held is now desolate and cracked. So many pieces of the mirror so I looked at each shard. One peace showed me a regal queen who's flaw was her pride. Another showed me a man who fought in combat to prove his worth. The next showed me a woman who was too afraid...

    Poetry # 180 Not Much

    I don't know why I can't lose weight , I really don't eat that much; Just my fruits and veggies And eggs and meats and such. Sometimes (but not too often) I'll have a piece of cake Or perhaps a hot fudge sundae Or some cookies that I bake. I don't know why I can't lose weight; I...

    Touch Me

    One look from you, I bare my soul Rarer than you will ever know Forbidden love, friend or foe I cannot hide, what I cannot show Exquisite torture, I hesitate Led by longing, lust, or fate But through every pulse, you resonate Made all the sweeter for the wait Touch me now with...
