my skin is paper thin

he smiled and said,
"well i would love to set it alight, watch you burn, watch you fight"

I try not to resent over  
the failure of
unpeeling the little layers of myself
especially
the sightly, delicate wicked ones
that you’ve kept so guarded  
to salve the belongings
among all the other broken things
before you took off your skin that settles
in your room closet
sounds rather sufficing enough
than to let this almost heart slip backward
wrapped in the demon’s breath

-a.

I can taste the clouds
when our hands are intertwined
and his utterances always linger
but more like euphoria than
a shattered spine.
And I've never spoken to him
a lukewarm truth,
I've never loved him in grey;
We're amateurs,
cradled by caffeine on
Monday mornings,
still learning how flowers
can break through skin
that's mourning.

How can you know me,
    When you've only seen my skin
There is not way
    I could possibly portray
    More than a distorted fragment
        Of the twisted universe
            That resides inside my head.

I try  my dear,
    Oh how hard I try!
But it is futile you see,
    For how can I form words
        To convey who I am
When I myself
Do not even understand
Who I Have Become.

Me

From where we are
Or where we're going
We could be anything
Anything at all

Her

Not shaking

It's just my brilliance
Trying to get out

During one late night poetry show, I got carried away with a blue pen. I wrote on my arm, and then hers.

Her eyes
Gray like the clouds
So kind and warm
Or they project a million thunderstorms

Her hair
Green like trees
So straight and so long
But they shed away when everything goes wrong

Her face
Brown like the dirt
So colourful and uneven
Or gray and blank, without a crack for breathing

Her skin
Blue like the sea
So soft and smooth
Or frantically shifting and heavily grooved

Her nails
Clear like the air
All short and matching
Or long and jagged, clawing and scratching

Nature's a beauty, it upsets me when people harm it.

See me in your minds eye,
Feel me in your heart,
Seek me through your thoughts flame,
Bring within;
Telepathic spark,
Linger in my names name,
Chant it out loud;
Sense me through your skin,
Because I'm you,
I'm all about love.

I used to use a magic mirror to self validate
but it took me far too long
to find that the self hate
had found its orgins elsewhere
Somewhere not so skin deep
And so it makes it quite a struggle
to search out soulfull sleep


But after all the praise was gone
I finally came to admit
Perfection had long since taken me
and was walking in my skin

It was my skin that became
all the home i had to live in

To wit
I ended up on the edge of my own identity
selling my last shred of dignity for some quick fix
A few creepy half glances
I was blind to second chances

Ignorant out of will or spite
either way, i wasnt right

+++

In the subconscious
ignorance may be bliss
but I was too ham fisted
And once I added a slice of lonliness
It cut right through the seam
To find the corpse of happiness

And i near missed it

Or at least i thought i did


Its like an old adage i heard once
You dont know what youve lost till youve had to replace it and you cant find the basics anywhere inside you,
so with nothing left to define
you just give up and go back to hide


Or something like that

Yeah, it's pretty much my thoughts about self image

and I swear, the moment our skin touched,
I felt it burn
like it was all wrong
and invalid.
I watched myself turn into ash.

#wrong   #skin   #touch  

Blood drips,
            oozes,
                      In lurid globes
Down the shadowed folds of heavy velvet.
            cloying stench,
                      shattered china.

Your spine is twisted under stretched yellow skin,
Disjointed vertebrae break through, glinting white.
Your lost words heavy on your tongue,
Ringing in my ears.
Every villain believes
   they are a hero dear.
         even me.

Not a huge fan of this one if I'm honest. Thought I would post it anyway.
