"I'm well acquainted with villains that live in my head."


I like to sit
In dark silence
And pretend
I’m dead.

Imagine the world
Turning,
People
Breathing,
Life moving
On.

Imagine every
Verse,
Paragraph,
Story told…
It was all
For nothing.

Broken line
Fading with
Time, lost to
The beating
Of the
Clock,
The hands
Drumming to
Infinity.

Every word
Hissed from
Between
Quivering lips
And disintegrating
Into lifeless
Stanzas.

Lost to memory,
Lost to the
Murmur of
Passing time.

Recounts of
Nightmares
And daydreams,
Fears
And hopes.

Failures
And accomplishments,
The recorded words
All that remain of
What could once
Smile in a dull world
And call herself
Logan.

It’s so inconceivably
Conceivable,
So hideously
Beautiful,
That I can help
But crave for it
To come to be.

To lend my barely
Beating heart
To a feebly jargon,
Fleeting diction,
Dancing imagery.
Entrusting my
Small legacy
To adolescent
Angst.

Waiting to be
Read,
Remembered,
Understood for once
In my short,
Heavy life.

Finding solace
In the agreement
I bound the last
Of me to:
Acceptance postmortem

There, but not
For me to enjoy.

Never for me
To enjoy.

@KawaiiCooper Ahhh. I see. But it still, is really good though. Don't doubt yourself. You are a step above me, I respect that, since I don't find many people who are. ;) But I won't deny it when I see it. It really is well constructed Logan. *applauds you*

Okay uh, that bit of, "Of me to: / Acceptance postmortem." Was edited. I didn't put that in the original...

@KawaiiCooper Love it. I can always relate to your stuff, Logan. I have not met a single piece of your work I have not liked. It is all amazing. God. I love this one.
