Dark Embrace

I can feel them, the icy cold hands, my inner demons. They’ve taken a hold and are pulling me down. I don’t think I can fight them this time. I’m not strong enough. Not only am I not strong enough but the old doubts have risen with them as well. What’s the point? What’s it […]

Draining the Barrel

drained the whole barrel not a drop spilled, every letter etched into my heart, the lines already fading filled to overflowing I release myself fully my thoughts to tears, tears to ink heart splashed along the page myself became the missing link, poured all inside emotions growing the scratching quill, it kept me going left […]

Blurry Shadows of Vultures Road

Near-sighted and full of contradictions Walking with swollen and indifferent eyes Fistful of indecisions, pocketful of directions Hold me close Iike your scatterbrained lies Hide me like your exponential excuses Dress me in your long-winded fabrications Wrap me up in your pretty dirty honey I’ve memorized your pale footsteps I’ve seen your skeletons in your […]

Raining underneath REBLOG

Another gorgeous piece by Mark Ryan, one of my absolute favorite writers of all time. Underneath. Down here where it’s calm. Where the black beauty of the abyss touches my feet. All is quiet. All is still. I’m entombed as if in a coffin. Locked forever in my own space Controlling the promise of my […]

This really met me right where I’m at. I hope you’ll go to her blog and read the full piece. Now my mouth doesn’t know what my shadow is saying. Motor Motor nerve. Damage. (How?) Peripheral.
