    We inherit many things from our parents; our eyes, our hair, our smile. I, for example, was given a pair of blue eyes and a tendency to over-think. My brother was given his smile and his coat of anger. He's been wearing that anger for quite some time now. So long, in fact, that the colour ...

    A spoken word, a bitten tongue. An impulsive decision, a conscious control. Choosing to stay, or deciding to run - Committing to you or opting to fold. Closing eyes, counting to ten. Snapping control, surrender of will. Maintaining grip on a calm-like Zen, Giving into the stirring thrill. ...

    My eyes are frozen over, My laugh is cold and fake. I talk and breathe much slower, Than my body of sorts can take. My smile is forced and distant, My dimples rarely show. From faintly happy to depressed in an instant, The scale of my suffering you will never know. The walls are closing ...

    As i walked away, I couldn't breathe. You will never understand, what you've done to me. Your voice and words, echoing in my mind. I cover my ears and pray for quiet, but quiet i just cannot find. 'I love her' is all i hear, again and again, the only feeling left in...

    I've been going round and round, for much too long now. It's time I got myself in gear, and figured out how... How i'm gonna live my life, What i'm gonna do, How I'm gonna break away from all my past, and how I'm getting away from you. I'm tired of all...

    There is a girl I know quite well, and she has a story I'd like to tell... From a young age she knew the world was a cold and darkened place. She bottled things up and hid herself away, she was scared to show her face. She went through her youth with a speculating eye, knowing everything ...

    I can only keep this secret hidden for so long, I'm trying my very hardest but i can see it going wrong. I don't want to tell you 'cause I know it would make things worse, But let's be honest, we have always been completely cursed. The love I have within me grows stronger b...

    I hide from the sorrow I hide from the pain. I don’t care about tomorrow, My life will never be the same again. He had such joy within him, A laugh that made me smile He would have went out on a limb To get me everything my heart desired. But yet so much pain he inflicted On those ...

    She runs the water, it’s boiling hot. She thinks about getting in, she better not. But she knows that if she does, the pain will stop. Because she knows if she gets in, she never will get up. She steps into the bath, one foot at a time. She’s crying and laughing, at the same time. She lies...

    The cold, icy drops, hit my face. I look up at the dark, cloudy sky. I close my eyes and clear my thoughts; your face appears, it clouds my vision. Your eyes I see, they sparkle bright. You do not smile, you look deep in thought. Your expression hardens, and turns to anger, I am now afraid, ...

    I sit in the seat opposite you. I’m expecting a reaction; what will you do? You glance at me and then look away. How can you not recognise me? I look like you, or so they say. We ran from you, so many years ago. But I thought that you would know. I was expecting you to recognise me, At ...

    Looking in the mirror I begin to realise I have my father’s jaw line, And my mother’s eyes. My mother is very pretty And I’m glad I look like her But my father is a screw up When it comes to him, I do not care. But when I look inside myself At the things others cannot see I see t...

    She cries herself to sleep at night. And no-one’s there to tell her it’s alright. She feels alone, and she feels so weak. But no-one listens when she tries to speak. No-one hears her when she cries for help. She says, ‘why bother?’ she gives up on herself. She takes her knife and makes...

    She sits alone Surrounded by darkness There’s no-one home And she’s filled with weakness She’s fought for so long To try and not give in But it looks like the blade Is about to win She starts to cry As she loses control She silently says goodbye She lets go off her soul She says f...

    Looking at the empty seat at the breakfast table. Looking at the empty side of mummy's wardrobe. Looking at the empty space in the driveway. Looking at the empty cigarette ash tray. Looking at all of these empty things, reminds me of the day, when Daddy left me....

    I close my eyes and try to prevent the tears that threaten to give me away. I count to ten and try to breathe to try and get them away. Because if he knew how much it hurts every time he rejects me. I fear that it would blow my mask away and put my broken heart on show. Breathe...Breathe...B...
