    Lightning streaks of madness ran through her

    wild mane As black stained cheeks arrived again Artice blue eyes burned bright with rage Frantically grasping her rusted brass cage Fits of fury vibrated to the core Shouts an echo that will be ignored The naked trees sway violently east All alone and shaken... forever deceased

    He Is Me

    there is a creature that comes from a place where there is no hope or joy. The air itself is filled with misery. His heart is filled with a sadness that words really cannot depict. He walks among you but you would never noticed him. He is me.

    If there was a time I wanted you to burn This

    is it the moments come now. And yet the ache still twists and completely turns. Even though I made a home I lost the fucken house. I thought I was safe I thought I was loved. I was nothing but filth to be washed not smudged. Who could expect heat from eyes so dark and cold...

    Fenced In

    A creaky Rusty Closing gate The noise it makes has sealed my fate It blocks It snares It closes in. I know I'll die to stay within I cry I screech I rail against The injustice of this cloying fence I rush it Crash it Smash it up It bloodies me but gives me up To darkness Trees...

    Misery loves company. Company loves misery. Misery is in our souls. Misery is the dark water we drink. Misery is the hell we are all fear.

    The sadness erupts Leaving me still The scars

    of my past visible only to me The loneliness An empty feeling Leaves me reeling As I stare out of my lifeless eyes Waiting to feel my pulse Day turns to night Night turns to endlessness As I feel the weight of the universe Pushing me down Down to the ground

    The depths of the stars in the sky could never

    hide, The pain, the shame, That I hide beneath the smile in my eyes, And the nightmares, They continue to wake me, Leaving a trail of tears along my face, Some escaping to my hands, Leaving invisible marks of the churning emotions below the smile in my eyes.
