Run away into my future-self’s arms

middle men in devil comstumes could never take what we had
sown together at the atriums, the string only loosened
We thought it broke apart at the seams, tearing like flesh
Turns out we didn't give each other enough space to move.

internal catastrophe

To those now lost:

The love was always there,
the hate was just stronger.

The fear was even worse.

Depression cat

Sleepy-eyed,
the curtains put me to sleep.
Shrouded,
The room darkens.
I ease,
I drift my head down --
It's all becoming dream.
The weariness is intoxicating.
Must it feel so good, yet so wrong?
I'm put to bed by demons --
I purr, snoring.
Tears freeze in my eyes.
Heavy heart of stone, shattered eyes of glass.
I can finally see
that I'm a fraud.
I lay to rest, it's all I can do.
Close my eyes --
End the pain, End today.

A butterfly in a caterpillar’s body

My heart bleeds too
I may not cry
but I hurt
I seek adventure --
A call for meaning
A chance for awakening
An urge for retribution
I want to see the sun 
lensed through different skies
Dance on the edge of the earth
I'm no robot
I'm a human being
I need to be free
I need to be me.

Automated discolouration

I hate the outside world so much

all it does
is make me
feel like shit
Pointing out
my inadequacies
Causing me
to compare
myself
Remind me
that I'm broke
Tell me too 
much info
about "news"
and futile
opinions --

I don't care.
Turn the music up.

I just want
to forget
it all
It infuriates
me, the
virtual
shouting.

The memes are cool though.

But I'm much
more happier
Just living
my life
Cleaning my
room
Having fun
and watching
sunsets.

Lord of the flies

I break under the weight of a thousand oceans
God's tears are heavier than they seem
My bones are broken by crushing waves
I choke on the salt
Laid castaway on the shore
The sun cooking me
Seagull food, beach rats
Roasting to a crisp
My skin shrivels and darkens
I'm almost ready
Got no fight left
Can't move
To those who are hungry,
The lighthouse serves.

Live everyday like it's 2016

The Chosen One

I'm depressed and
I feel like I can't speak
Sellotape around my mouth
as if my pain is a burden to others
"Shuttup you have a good life."
You want it?
Didn't think so.

PURE FUCKING RAGE

I want power --
Not over others,
To want to see the power within.
Potential actualized.
The power to work.
The power to dream.
The power to concentrate.
The power to assert oneself.

The commander hides within
We charge when our backs are against the wall
The animal screams
and we curse.

Through crisis I am energized,
The demons call when the angels fail.
Underrate me,
See what happens.
A fire will consume you, and
I shall be the catalyst.
The monster that lights the match,
A fire of pure fucking rage.
