I see faces that stare into mirrors everyday, as they die,
I lunge those souls that breathed their last,
of surprise and thoughtfulness on to my shoulders,
and carry them to my abode of sleep.
But this one, I did not.
This one, stared at the mirror as she felt the monsters lurk behind her.
She looked at her face and smiled as though,
the monsters were going to gift her.
The monsters stabbed her with pleasure.
But she smiled on at the mirror.
I picked her cold body off of her blood,
and cried out “Why?”
“These monsters saved me from angels,
that would set me on fire,
And watch me shed my last drop of blood.”

Lungs filled with smoke,
Eyes covered in fog,
Mouth stuffed with sand,
Mind gelled out into chaos.
Living among scrunched up
paper and meagre amounts of ink,
I live art and
My mind tangled
amongst twists in my hair,
and the scent of
far fetched memories.
My lips burnt
of biting in doubt and anger.
My soul yearns to feel
warmth that singes, yet comforts.
My eyes simmer in pain,
my heart shrinks in ache,
my hands burn from scars,
my feet buckle under agony.
Is life truly a balance?
Is doubt in reality, fear
sheathed among layers?
Is my heart truth or my mind sane?
Questions linger in my mind
Mending my brain
into stitched up layers of fabric
But should I fear or embrace them?
Life is truly a choice between
Embrace and embarrass,
For not all glitters are gold,
And not all are to be embraced.
I sigh as I breathe confusion
And consume guilt
And expel passion.
This is a barf of some recent thoughts that gel in my mind. Thought I should share it. Don’t ponder too much over it, sometimes I’m truly crazy.
