"As I hide behind these books I read, while scribbling my poetry,
like art could save a wretch like me, with some ideal ideology that no one can hope to achieve.
And I am never real; it is just a sketch of me.
And everything I made is trite and cheap and a waste of paint, of tape, of time." - Bright Eyes


A cold, miserable hand reaches through the night.
Brushing my skin, through my mind.
It steals the happiness I once knew.
I awake with venomous tears.
Incapable heart.
Unwavering hands.
Never ceasing, although reasons there are none.
That hand is all I know,
Yet I know not enough.
They try to help me, though there is no solution.
Let me suffer.
I am the only one who may find a way back to myself.
These venomous tears are mine alone.

Now Cinderella don't you go to sleep, it's such a bitter form of refuge, oh don't you know the kingdom's under siege, and everbody needs you. - The Killers

I like it and the title really grabbed me... I'm like, okay, it's time to get down to business :) The end is really good, as is the rest of the poem... it molds together very nicely.

Check out my work if you have a chance... I'd love to hear from you.
