Walls

Laying on the floor
I look up at my surroundings
It’s plain
Nothing is on the walls
No pictures
Nor color
Just plain white walls
There is no sound
But my own breathing
My own steady heartbeat
It’s boring
All this plain
And all this emptiness
I need to find something
To fill this void
Before I lose it.

Out at night

She laced up her shoe
And popped her earbuds in
She pressed play
And walked out the door
She needs to clear her head
And she needs to run
She gets to the end of her street
And trend down the next
Her running picked up
As her thoughts got more in depth
She finally had to slow down
Her breathing was ragged
She leaned over her knees
To catch her breath
And someone knocked her down
Before she could turn around
They kicked her ribs
Knocking more wind out of her
They kicked her at least 10 times
Before stepping on her ankle
She felt it snap under the weight
She tried to move
But the pain pinned her down
A foot slid under her body
And it kicked her over
She saw the man standing over her
He smirked at her
Then spit in her eyes
He pulled his foot back
And kicked her in the head
Spit on her again
Then walked away
Leaving her there
Like she was yesterday’s trash.

Want

The want is there
It’s a burning desire
So many ways I could do it
So many things that can
Release my pain
To bleed out this darkness
It’s like a fucking game
The want is strong on both sides
The want to do it and bleed it out
And the want to not to hurt others.

Tutu

A shimmer of pink
Dances around her
Her brown shoulder length hair
Reminds me of someone
She giggles
And it’s the most delightful sound
My arms long to hug her
And my soul wants to be there
But I blink
And a sadness falls on my heart
Because the beautiful little girl
Remains just a dream in my heart.

Dark

The darkness is wrapped
Around me like a blanket
My body is weak
It’s betrayed me
My thoughts
Are dark like my surroundings
They are malicious and vicious
These thoughts
Have been banned from my mind
So why are they here now
These are the thoughts
That always required an action
It’s the only way
It’s what will make it better
I don’t need to see
To do what has to be done
The knife is already in my hand
And nothing else will make this better.

Washed Away

The tide rolls in
As I lay along the shore
The water dancing at my toes
I look up to the sky
And see nothing
The blue sky
Is warm an inviting
But I don’t belong there
The tide rolls in
Swirling around my waste
The water feels so warm
The emptiness in my head
Is occupying my time
The tide rolls in
Embracing my neck
And still the emptiness
Explodes out of my body
The tide rolls in
And takes me out to sea.

This feeling..

Anger
Hate
Rage
Words to some
Emotions to others
The anger
Courses through my body
Making me see red
The hate
Swirls up and around
Clouding my view
The rage…
It builds and builds
Making me want to explode
I want to scream
I want to yell
But the fear
Helps me keep it inside
