i have fallen in love
so swiftly, painfully
tears stroke my eyes
the words rang so TRUE and the haunting-thoughts KNEW
i would feel what i felt
in the thrumming of the harp.
but the lyrics flew and caught my heart
so i fell in love
with a shooting star.
Sharp stalking scissor-stress
Hot with fever, tracing my mess
The bile pushes at my lungs
The sorrow wedges itself deeper in my blood
Veins that tighten and push nausea instead of red
I feel the sickness swirling through my matter
Each cell a slice of pain and confusion
CUT ME UP AND SERVE THEM ON A PLATTER
I feel like I never said your name,
You only ever said mine.
So long we wandered around together, and
How much time did I spend
Trying to… hide?
I was a monster in love with my reflection now I will say his name and love the taste of the inflection please help me stop this sad obsession make me someone by making me no one.
Through miles and miles of travel, stay
As far from comfort, love and loss
To bury the ache and shoulder my cross
I want to be breathless with loneliness
Leave me here and
Please just f o r g e t u s
I am guilty of cutting up your veins
I close my eyes and sip the stains
I fill my heart with all your pain
And sleep unhurt while you
L i e a w a k e
Ah, I cannot sleep because the Fates have their eye
The end of my string is looming, the scissors whine closer
I know I will not survive
Just please let me sleep through the night
But will you move along someday
When someone else is as bright as me?
As loud, as eager, as strange and chaotic
Why stay here when others are c a l l i n g ?
One thing you did right
Was you loved my words.
You wanted to hear them
Day and night.
One thing you did wrong
Was you also loved her.
Was she on your mind
While I wrote of you?
I feel the shiver-heart so close,
Its echo rattling the prison cell
And I almost shriek for want of the feeling
But the moment passes, the tears die inside
I sink deeper into mire, unknown, unafraid
the dam inside relents, the coolness spills down my lips
my heartbeat flickers slower and the waterfalls collapse
my worry has surrendered, my stoic-flesh gives in
the tears fall.
