Shadow Self

A shadow creeps below the water
Lurking beneath the surface
Unseen, unheard, and unmatched
I know what it is.
I’ve seen it.
I’ve heard it.
I am no match for it.
Our relationship is older than most.
Remaining my most stable aspect,
It speaks...

Barbed Words

That is the hardest thingBeing seenConsideredKnown I want to be known
Let my name be known
Will they consider me?
Here I amStagnant and repugnantAffection is meaninglessWords are hollow
Allow me to mimic this...

I put you together
You pull me apart
You broke into a million pieces and I got cut
I’ve been battered and bruised
Beaten and Eaten
Spit back out again
Make me your vomit
I am vile
You so filled with bile
Eat me and feed...

Leave me, I won’t be waiting.
All I want is be free.
Free of torment
What am I waiting for?
Leave me earth and flesh
Unable to transition
I want you to leave me
joy hurts
I want to leave,
but my hope is...

Lasting Impression

Never remind me of my past
It means nothing
The present is a constantly disappointing past
It all goes away and becomes memory
Becomes nothing, dust, nature
if only I didn’t matter
I cant disappear
I must hold on
I am holding for dear life
