Ominous

I’ve never been one

For writing pretty

As you can probably tell

From this little ditty


Rhubarb

Searching
for
light

Raised
in
darkness

Our
numbers
grow

Despite
the
sparseness

Where’s Your Ro(man)ce?

Even my love poems

It seems

Have a sinister tone

So it’s no wonder

That I’ve spent

So long on my own


Achilles H(eel)

Lingering
on the
ocean floor

Lurking
in the
starkness

This is
where we
both belong

Hidden
amongst
the darkness

Translucent

I can see straight through you

He said

Your truth isn’t so hard to find

There’s no way you can navigate

She said

The grey areas of my mind

Random #148

“I wish neither to possess nor to be possessed. I no longer covet ‘paradise’. More important, I no longer fear ‘hell’. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, but I did not observe it, until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, consuming myself.”

– Bruce Lee

Random #94

‘It’s so much darker when a light goes out, than it would have been if it had never shone.’

– John Steinbeck

In The North

It never quite gets dark

This time of year

Which makes the sky so pretty

But when you’re already

Struggling to sleep

It’s actually just shitty

Out Of My Hands

There wouldn’t be any problem

If I didn’t wake up tomorrow

At least I wouldn’t be in pain

Or suffocating in this sorrow

From Birth

Why is everything so fucking bleak with you

He said

Why can’t you just stop moping around

For my melancholy is lifelong

She said

And no cure can be found

Shapes

Leave
this
place,
the
light
shape
whispers,
for
it
is
not
your
time.

I’m
staying
here,
the
dark
shape
whispers,
for
now
I
want
what’s
mine.

Bad Seed

I
wish
there
was a
way

I
could
make
you
see

That
good
boys
like
you

Aren’t
for
bad
girls
like me

Well, You Asked…

Even
though
I find
your
writing
talent
genuinely
quite
considerable

Reading
your
words
over and
over again
really
does just
make me
miserable

The Vulture

I
don’t
mind

Leaving
your
bones
behind

But
I’ll
take
away
your
heart

For I
think
you’ll
find

Its
been a
while
since
I’ve
dined

On
meat
so
a la
carte

The Lamp

I should
have been
more careful
with what
I wished for

Because
I never
wanted it
to end like
this at all
