Play

Standard

My heart does idle in
Confusion

While

My brain plays

Between lucidity and

Madness.

She Thought.

Standard

She thought.

She did not think.

She loved.

She believed she loved.

She thought she was awake.

She was only dreaming

So

Here she lies staring

At the ceiling.

And

Sleep evades her

This darkest night

As so many nights before.

Once again she tosses and turns,

Unpleasant thoughts raging inside her brain.

More often than not this bed is no friend.

Melt

Standard

I want to melt.

I want to slip between the cracks.

I desire to be held and let all my walls

Down.

To be completely and utterly

Vulnerable.

Naked.

But I can’t.

I’m too bent.

I’m too damaged.

It’s too late

And I’m too tired.

These bruises won’t go away.

No matter how hard I scrub,

The bleach won’t clear away the stains.

The glue won’t hold the cracks together.

My strength is just a hoax I’ve planted in my brain

Which my heart can no longer

Sustain.

Cannot Be Me

Standard

You say sweet things

And you compliment me.

But.

You must be mistaken,

You must misunderstand.

It cannot be me you are directing

Your smile at.

It cannot be me you aim

Your kindness at.

The truth is

I cannot handle a

Compliment.

It goes into my brain,

Clanks around in the walls of my heart

And by the time it comes out the other side

I have completely torn it apart.
