Nothing can fill this hole inside me
The endless vacuum that makes me want to scream
That creates a desire to cut open my seams
A void of despair
How do I repair
The brokenness I find
In all of my dreams
Alice Jul 2022
Hopeful for sanity
Bound up in mediocrity
Okay but not fine
Dancing with satan
It’s Hard when you’re not alright
To feel revelation.
Alice Mar 2022
I devour myself
Dissolve myself like acid
Erode myself
Starting at the sides, I move in on myself

corner myself
shatter myself
Starting at the edges, I consume myself

abrade myself
crumble myself
Starting at the ends, I chip away at myself

Break myself
Mistake myself
feed off myself
Inside, I devour myself

They’re not going to email you or buzz you or ring you
They’re not going to talk to you or hear you or see you
They’re going to have nothing to do with you and they’re happy not to be you.
Take their power from your mind
Only that can free you.
Because, you. You deserve to be free. You.
  Dec 2021 Alice
I don't feel special,
I'm not unique.
I want to cry
but I can't even speak.
My hands reach out,
but they cannot hold
a single thing
but the bitter cold.
Everything's frozen,
I feel lost.
Even my tears
have turned to frost.
When I cut my waist
it bleeds black.
I'm so deeply gone
there's no way back.
This is goodbye

Cydney Something
All I know
Is how
I feel

And sometimes I
Wish I
Knew nothing
Alice Dec 2021
I have made mistakes
Quiet a few
More than I can name to you.

I have fallen short
Dug my grave
Thought I wasn’t worthy to save.

I’ve given up
I’ve fallen down
But I’ve not remained upon the ground.

Because life is short
And moments fleeting
So, in spite of my fearful heart,
I will keep dreaming.
