blurred lines, and blurred boundaries have led to a blurred allegiance with
romanticising trauma to cope
is like forcing
due to your own peer pressure.
the eyes begin to water
and respond with rejection
but that is the closest you get to
the drunken narrative brings you temporary peace, and temporary relief
as the pain in numbed, but never cured. "it hurts so good" is now written on the welcome mat, inviting the poison into the temple where it now feels at home.
it sits comfortably in your favorite chair.
it lies in your bed, dirtying your sheets.
the lovely fragrance you spray cannot remove the stench from the air. it only mixes in with the scent, masking the smell from what you do not want to face.
i want my temple back,
and i want it clean.
so when pain and pleasure come knocking on the door
i hold s p a c e for one,
and ask the other
to come visit
in my dreams.
As I ate my taco at my favorite Mexican restaurant I sat next to a big painting. I almost lost my appetite when I realized the love and devotion this man had for his love. He had so much grief and anguish from the loss of his love. I wonder if I’ll find someone who loves me this much, or if I’d push it away. I finished my taco and skipped desert.
Shadows settle on the place, that you left.
Our minds are troubled by the emptiness.
Destroy the middle, it's a waste of time.
From the perfect start to the finish line.
And if you're still breathing, you're the lucky ones.
'Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs.
Setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong
The lovers that went wrong.
We are the reckless,
We are the wild youth
Chasing visions of our futures
One day we'll reveal the truth
That one will die before he gets there.
And you caused it
Well I've lost it all, I'm just a silhouette,
A lifeless face that you'll soon forget,
My eyes are damp from the words you left,
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest
Well you can try to sink down deeply
And find the children lost at sea
Find the children who discreetly
Were killed in infancy
To stop them holding you and screaming
That you'll lose your wildest dreaming
Still reminding you of him
How he left without reasons
But you, you always find another place to go
you always find another womb to grow, to grow, to grow
You can try to forget me but I won't let you easily
I'm floating out in the water washed out to sea
Drifting away with time you'll regret you've conceived it
Clean up the dead you leave behind
I’ll wrap up my bones
And leave them
Out of this home
Out on the road
Two feet standing on a principle
Two hands longing for each others warmth
Cold smoke seeping out of colder throats
Darkness falling, leaves nowhere to go
It's spiraling down
Biting words like a wolf howling
Hate is spitting out each others mouths
But we're still sleeping like we're lovers
It must be written that the moon elbowed the stars and said, let's do our best to make it hard for them
Your house turned into paper cranes, we watched the wind blow them away
Some sorry comfort I was then.
