Benign

I pace around like my brain’s lost,
Trying to find it, just killing time,
But at what cost?

Without my mind, without any aim,
I’m just getting careless,
But am I to blame?

Feeling crazy, or just stupid,
Hazy now or going faint,
Is this just another dream in lucid?

A lost soul, a silent art
Only sentenced to asylum…
Why do I need a brain,
When I have a good heart?

Aquarius

I turn to stone when you touch me,
Still, it’s not my truth,
I just don’t want you to see
That I’m soft and mushy…
How I’m always so blue,
That the night competes with me
Even more than you do.
I’m sorry if I seem heartless,
The way I run to hide,
Because I promise I’m not
Callous…
I just feel as though I’ve died.
Some say it’s cold hearted,
I say that’s another lie.
You see,
I just have the type of heart
That is safer kept inside.

Succubi

Hiding within the darkness,
Lurking lovingly in the shadows,
Afraid to come into open light,
Shame cursed itself, sliced silhouettes.
Dimming now, spying through windows,
Each shade another split of me.
Overcasts squirm from narrowed eyes,
Once again finding home in blacked out,
Eclipsed, grey matter.

Afire

I crave you,
All my wants have turned
To needs.
I burn with a flame
That is hot
Only for you,
Because only you
Have the power
To spread the fire
Or
Tame it.

Your secret blue

I know you like to change colors,
But I know you at your core,
You’re blue.
Please do not try to fake it with me,
Showing orange and reds
Beneath your yellows.
Yes, vibrant green is many things,
But I know it’s not true.

a.l.c

On my own

Am I alone here,
Left with abandoned thoughts
In a graveyard lined with beds
All named ‘slaughtered hope’?

The sky dims and my mind blackens,
Reminding me,
Tonight will end just like the last,
Leaving me with questions
Always unanswered.
