Protest You thought you had us silenced,But now we're getting loud.You thought you had us beaten,You thought you had us cowed.But we rose up to fight youIt's a battle to be heard.You're fighting us with silenceSo we'll fight you back with words.
CastlesLong ago and far away,In a castle built to stay,Nothing left, and nothing right.Nothing but encroaching night.At the dusky death of day,In a castle built to stay,The dark is eating me alive,The dark is wanting to survive.By the curve of azure bay,In a castle built to stay,I'm alone, and I'm afraid,I wish that I had never prayed.On the sun's last saffron ray,In a castle built to stayI will live and I will dieBoth while dreaming I can fly.
Faded memoryYou run but it's like walkingStep backwards through an open door.The effort just to keep talkingBut they don't listen anymore.Your heart beats you to a blurOnly cry when no-one can see.She's good and you aren't herWatch faded tapes of memory.
UnforgettableI know a truth that I'll never forget,A secret thing that I'll always regret.Like a trespass one can't take back once saidBut that lives on in the speaker's head.I wish I could tell the truth that I know,Give up freely, and let it go.Share with someone the sad secretThat I will never forget.
Thousandth whisperOn the thousandth whisper of the thousandth wordA thousand things have gone unheardAnd thoughts and emotions, undeterredSink from the consciousness of this one caged bird.
Papier-mache face If I was all alone in a darkened roomI'd be no more alone than I am with you.A mask and a good costume,That's all it takes to hide what's true.And you stand there and lie with such good graceAs if not aware that I know what's real.I can read what's on your face,But there's nothing there to reveal.So blank, so distant, and so cold;Papier-mâché face, lost to reality.You're just a projection of the lies you've toldIn the guise of prudent neutrality.
On FateHope lies in chances that a thing might be changed,But it's three A.M.and I've fallen apart.Thinking that life is prearrangedI've decided that fate is hope's enemy at heart.One is unchanging and cannot fall.The other is needed to exist at all.
Skeleton HaikuMy coffin now restsSix feet deep and freezing cold:Scratch marks on the lid.
Ice ShadowThe all pervading icy shadowSteals across yet another dayAnd all the minds lying fallowDrift into dreams and far away.The lights flick on as life goes onNothing ever really changes hereAnd every light seen will soon be goneAnd take all that we hold dear.
Monster inside my headI have a monster in my headand it wants to come outYou've fed it, it has grownfrom your actions did it sproutI try to hold it backbut it's so utterly madI can't hold it backit's the worst I've hadStronger and strongerIt breaks apart my wallsI can't hold it backMy final barrier fallsIt fights, it kicksit bites, now you fallYou've had it comingfor yet another callYou push me aroundnow you will get it backrun away if you canit's your skull I'll crackThis monster insideI will no longer hideit has destroyed its cageyou will feel all my rage
Maker'sThe day passed-a short breath in his memory.By morning it was almost time.By evening he was someone elsecompletely.To him, it meant nothingif the moonlight was tarnished.That snow could stay black for another week.Nothing can take back forgetting.
you've been dead for a year, my deari met you on december 21st,the longest night of the year.you had solstice eyes: cold, dark, alluring.i knew you were not meant to last,powerful as a gale but fragile asthe tulip stems you snapped,a sickening cycle of you,an overwhelming tidal wave.they say two wrongs will never make a right,but i made so many bad choices thati wound up back where I began.it was too easy to love you,but getting you to love me back was impossible.i clawed at your chest until I struck blood,until my nails split into shards.you were born a phantom,and i, your corpse.holding onto you felt like drowning in quicksand;i fought but always sank into your arms.i breathed in dirt, breathed in dust, andfound my organs choked with you,smothered by your existence.you sucked out my breathevery time i kissed you.i died every day with your handknotted in my hair.You left on june 21st,the longest day of the year.i bit down sorrow and deconstructedthe labyrinth within me,the one you hadn't th
IntensityI dress in broken greyscale,In walls of smoke-charred glass:The paper-lined abysmal veilThat glistens as you pass.I live in boxed enigmas,Counting star-drenched seasUntil the etched out sigma,My breath a sour wheeze.I am the tattered sailboatAmong your wispy words;I dip and fly 'til I can floatBeside your past, lust-lured.My ceiling is a blanketYou wove with mirrored starsAnd set upon me, "take it",And carved my fledgling scars.My body is no canvasBut the artwork that you makeWithin the winds around usAnd the watered earth you break.
Still Oxidizinglast nighti read theobituariesand when i sawyour name wasn't deaddecaying or rustingrotting in a forestmingling with a pile ofashes, i realizedyou really couldlive without me
ConfectioneryMy taste buds are enrapturedby rose-red raspberry cakeswith vanilla cream cylinders -a toothsome combinationthat can send my heartfluttering formidablyagainst a pale sky.I am in heaven, again.
The Throbbing RoomI've lived my life here in this roomThis room that is most moist and mushyI don't mind; it's warm in hereMy room is shaped oddlyLike a potato with tendrils twisting upwardsI feel safe hereThere is this odd earthquakeThe entire room throbs and rattlesI feel imprisonedI have to get out; have to find a wayTo get out, out of this roomI am locked away; only there is no doorI cry and pound on the throbbing wallsScreaming my throat hoarseBut there is no answer–just that dreadful throbbingNo one can hear me; I doubtMy yells echo throughout the emptied roomNo ears or eyes just numb skin–and that terrible thumpingI felt my body go limp andThere on the mushy, pulsing floor I sobbedToo deep in your chest to be noticed –inside a throbbing room
something worseendless waves and your remains,the sun brighter than ever seen.a missing piece just like all the other makeshift bridges,that want to never let you go on.deciding you're not minding staying after all.thinking your enduring is bringing you closer to farther away,that sparing a few moments could be worth it as long as you're aloneor mostly.the falls honoring their name with reckless abandon,and trying to free your feet from the ground;one of the few things you would expect to persistbut it too will erode awaylike every friend that could ever be made.slowly consumed.pursed lips blowing away dust that proliferateswith every tick the second hand makes,and somehow your other hand can't sweep away.and now you're shaking like you sometimes dothe companion of erratic breathing.not even a shot of light could find you now.when I cry you cry too.but I wish I could do something else.it plagues your every thoughtand I fell ill just as long agobut I'm quarantined for fear of s
SeducersWet they offer themselvesDelicate like a kiss kept in iceHunters with lust-filled veinsOn show pretending to be niceLooking for a prey to devourBut bitten they want to be tooI dream of them every hourAnd of them I'll fall prey tooThey tease me and playMy lust belongs now to themThey control my every wayMy passion tied to their chainsRed, glowing, invitingI want , I thirst, I desireDripping, juicy, seducingI die, I crave, I needSensually calling my nameWhispers subjugate my willBiting, tracing my flesh in painPowerless they make me feelI surrender and let myself goFor to those lips I can't say no.
Kindnesses ForgottenTreasures given in light of the friendships I've lost,A way of filling the gap made by difference.The place for you in my heart is now covered in frostAnd sealed by the growing distance.And how can I hide my face from you?You, who retains all other friends.And now I am unsure if I really knewJust what I wanted to come of the end.And so I set aside my hate and extend a handBut it will not be had by you or another.I am the victim of a sinking ship, unmanned,Who grieves over the loss of a brother.
Love and HateA trail of blood leading from the bed,It stained the white sheets,A body of a man lay,Lifeless,She was sure,Her eyes were that of dead fish,No emotion at all,Bruises on her cheek and chest,Remember how you beat me,And said I was a worthless slut?She whispered,I gave you Love,You gave me hate,Love, hate such a fine line they say,Love is something magical,Hate is something twisted,Twisted like the blade I put through your heart,You said you were leaving,You are,You are leaving to hell.

Blood Typesubtle murmurs and brittle promises.I,Took it upon my own judgementTo talk to you.You,Took my words,And my heart.

And So It Goes.And So It Goes.Is it true...That falling feels likefreedom?With that added sense ofSecurity?Is it true...That it hurtsmoreTo turn and runThan to hit the floor once again?Is it true...That the skylineWillFall to dustIn the beat of a broken heart?Is it true...That to breathe your last breathYou must make friends in order toLoseThem again?Is it true...That time meansNothingTo those who check their broken watchesEvery hour?Is it true...That beauty is just aScarAcross the wrist ofThe damaged?Is it true...That when you said youLovedMeYou just meant you hated her?Is it true...That when you saidLetmefallAll you really meant wasNeverletmego?
Waterlily EyesShe had butterfly-winged eyesShe had eyes which were mirroring the stars,and bursting from stardustEyes like waterlilies,cause waterlilies even shine in dark placesShe was -a flame in november rain,throwing back her head with a laugh,singing in the streets, Ave MariaA voice, crystalline as theraindrops bedecking her ginger hair,sparkling pearls on a princess´ diademShe was...magical,walking in the air andnever touching groundShe was magical,until the world noticed herAnd sold herSold her to the men who smilethose pretend smiles without happiness inside of themSold her to the men who know how to play withthe lust of the crowdSold her to the men who run the big stage,the big stage of hidden crueltiesSold her to the men who can tell you whyginger isn´t as pretty as peroxide blondeSold her to the men who placed coloured contactson her eyes, because they needed a rose, not a waterlilyCause who needs a princess, if you could have
