    I can feel the strength that I have kept for so long melting inside of me. What is left of it slides down the walls of my deteriorating body... what to do now is what I am asking. What are you supposed to do when getting back up is no longer an option? If I fall now I will stay down for good and t...

    Every time you tell me that you're done and I let you go to sleep, I worry that I won't hear from you when you wake up. When I wake up the next morning I wonder if you even went to sleep, or did you really do it this time? I check my phone to see if maybe you woke up early...you didn't. I tell mys...

    When the world is gray and the sky is crying, you'll be there hiding from the darkness. Unlike a hero, you won't be fighting. The water spills down the roads, thick like the blood of a traitor. Where are you? You're cowering in the darkness, you're letting...

    It's a rainy day but I swear I'm here to stay. Oh baby, don't make me go away. I'm dying inside all the insults you think but you hide. Don't do this to me don't set me free. Lock this cage and throw away the key I'm not ready for the sea. Go aw...

    When the thoughts are too much for you head, give em to the paper instead. Too much for you head, put em to bed. Bad playlist on repeat, deleting it's best. Lock em away, chuck the key. Take em to the grave, deteriorating brainwaves. No one has to know, let em go solo! ...

    Tell me you feel my pain! Tell me you hear my silence! Tell me you taste my bitterness! I'm crawling backwards, Because it threatens to eat me alive. I don't want to feel this any more. It makes me feel so alive. I stretch and stretch just to feel that pain, The p...

    And don't ask me why I didn't turn on the light. Why when I've devoted my entire life to the light, I felt most comfortable in the darkness. I stood there, And I was not afraid. I was content. 30 seconds later I've turned on the light and have gone back to what I ...

    Cry for me, Under the sea. As the impossible flames reduce you to, Nothingness. Not a memory of you left behind, As if you never existed. But I'll remember, I'll keep you quiet. I'll keep you to myself, It'll be our little secret. Let the woman under...

    I have this dark cloud that follows me. It taps on my shoulder to remind me that it's there. Sometimes it suffocates me and makes me cry. It makes me doubt myself and it makes me hate who I am. It points out all of the things I can't stand about myself. It yells at me, it accuses me. Some ...

    And tonight it seems that not a soul in the world has faith in me. Who am I but an unaccomplished being. I've no honor to my name, But for a few well written verses. Who am I to stay here among heroes? Is there sense in seeing what I become? Shall I lay here and wait for death ...

    You have left me, All alone, This darkness threatens to enclose me. It tells me secrets, Secrets that I can't bear to hear anymore. Things I couldn't have ever imagined. All because you left me. When will the nightmares stop torturing me, When will they go away? I scream in the ni...

    As I melt away I feel my hearts last beat, Like the steady rhythm of a drum, That so suddenly fades. Will you be there to put me back together, When all is lost? I'm sure I can take this if only with a little help, Surely it's not you that needs to stay away from my stealth. Have yo...

    The fact that you’re so obsessed tells me that you’re not ready for the real thing. But I am. No, you’re not. It’s not the right time. You don’t know that. But I do, I do. There are so many more things that have to happen before you’ll truly be ready for it. Like what? ...

    I watched as she walked in. She was beautiful, and I was about to get up to introduce myself. Before I could do anything she pulled out a gun. "Everybody shut up!" People were screaming, diving under tables, calling 911 on their cell phones. I was paralyzed. I couldn't avert my eyes. ...

    I was walking outside when I was stopped by a mysterious man. He was covered head to toe in black. The only part of him that was visible were his eyes. Looking into his eyes I felt a sudden wave of sadness wash over me. Suddenly I saw fire in the mans eyes. He started yelling, "No! Not here! No...

    When I was 13, I liked to go for walks in the woods. I liked to go just after sunset when the sky was orange. Many people liked to camp in these woods which made the air smell like campfire; I loved that smell. I had just eaten dinner, my stomach full like a hot air balloon when I decided to go out ...
