Did the sea
seem inviting
that day?
The way
it must have
taken your breath
away
for you to
say,

"Ah, here
I'll stay,"

Did you love the
sea more
than air
that day?

As the skies
rumbled,
downpouring
their gentle
guilt
in your tangled
mess of hair,

The way
it trickled down
your smiling face
- into your mouth,
I can almost imagine,

Did the sea
not scream
murder
as you divulged
beneath
its rough
edged
waves,

Did you not
claw
towards the
heavens,
Did you not
scream
Until
you were
strangled
alive?

Did you love
the sea so dearly,
to let it's
cold
arms
drag you
to even colder
places.

For a friend and another suicide attempt.

There is no point
in praying,
unless
one prays
for the boon
of having no boon,
and having
nothing to
pray for.

A new year,
yet the season
remains the same.

Ça fait mal,

Ça
fait mal,

Que tu es belle,

je marche
mieux quand
    ma main
serre la tienne,

plus tard ce
sera trop tard,

Ça en
vaut la peine,

Toi et moi.

Eau Froide= Cold Water.

It hurts,
It hurts,
how beautiful you are (that you are beautiful),
I walk better
when my hand
is in yours ,
later it will
be too late,
it's worth it,

you and I.

Here
comes the
death of
free speech,
the lines
have
been drawn
so close
to my feet,
trigger
warnings
with each word
spoken,
political
correctness
leaves
no
door open,
an empire
of
lies,
where
truth
is
an
evil virtue,
and
honourary
movements
are turned
into
teenage
issues,
the
century
of infidelity,
one sided
social
justice
has become
the new
reality.

Tried to have a proper debate with a 'Social Justice Warrior', ended up getting yelled at before I could even state my side of the issue. There are many issues in the world, but exaggerating the truth is no way to go about them.  Kind of reminds me of Genghis Khan's iron rule for some reason(?)  :\

Push me out to sea,
on a raft
that you
built
with
rotten
weeds,

don't look
back please,

please
just let me
be,

Cover
me in
the
evergreens
from your
garden,

burn
me
away
with
your
grief,

close
your
eyes
to
today,
bid
me
farewell
as you
walk away,

Forget
all
those years
I broke
you down,

forget
all those years
where
I stole
your
crown,

because
all
I ever
taught
you
was how
to drown,


I know
you liked
me better
when
I was
kind,

you liked
me better
when
I wasn't
losing
my
mind,

You loved
me
longer
when
there
was time,


You loved
me
better
when my
dreams
were
mine.

No one
laughs at God,

not at war,
not in hospitals,
No one
laughs at
God
when
they've
got nothing
left to keep,
No one laughs
at God
even when
death comes
to reap,

But everyone laughs
at God,
at bars
and in clubs,
and in living
rooms of
Christians,
when jokes
and wine
are spilled
together,

And at
get togethers
and
dinner parties
and in movies,
where everyone
laughs
together,

No one laughs at
Jews,
not in their faces,
because then
their racist,
Not during history
month,
Not
when reading
evidence
and proof,

But everyone
laughs
at Jews,
when the economy
collapses,
when someone
wears
a Hitler
themed Halloween
costume,
when
breaking an
awkward silence,
when blaming
others,
everyone laughs
with their
mouths open,

No one laughs
at war,
not when children
are
falling down
like flies,
Not when
others
dare not bat
an eye,
Not when
blood
feeds
nature
more than rain,

But everyone laughs at
war,
when
the teachers not
looking,
when little
Muslim
kids are being
murdered,
When
looking for
someone else
to blame,
around dinner
tables
and brunches,
together
they laugh
at
unfathomable pain,

No one laughs
at feminism,
not when
your
friend's
daughter
was raped
in her dorm
room,
not when
girls
are killed for their
gender,
not when
education
is a restricted
property
with a
no-girl
policy,

But they
laugh,
when
making rape
jokes,
because its
just for fun,
isn't it?
when
boys
will be
boys
is an excuse
for each
practice
and outcome,
when
expletive
words are
all they have
in their dictionary
to describe
her
and her
mother,

It's all so funny,
two faced
in our ignorance,
laughing
at each other's
expense,
monstrous and
cruel,
killing humanity
with our
hands.

Doesn't anyone ever get tired of hating each other?
