The blade pushes deeper
And yet I smile
A sick enjoyment
Of torturous pain

The cage is loose
As so the beast
Within from depths
Comes with wounded hide

The gaze unbreaking
The bond unfaltering
The life unending
The pain unbearable

The enjoyment unwavering

The feeling of not knowing
Why you are
Or how to show it
Or what to do

This feeling has become a constant
It lurks behind a veil
A mask of confidence
A mirage of knowledge

Help me learn
Help me grown
Assist me in my blooming
Allow me to grow

Give me food
Give me water
Give me life
And give me death
I swear I’m actually not depressed I just write what comes out

What do I do
Why the hell do I do what I do
I feel like a train hurtling towards another
Yet doing nothing to stop because I love the thrill of going fast
take me back to when I didn’t care

What is love?
A chemical?
A feeling?
The rush of knowing who is there for you?


There is no comprehensible way to describe love

There is no single feeling to show love

There is no definite's in the world of love


When you know love?

Don't let go

Doesn’t matter what it is
Who it’s for
Or when it comes

Just don’t push it out

They say the grass is greener
On the other side
We’ve all heard every iteration
Every delineation

So hear my quiet refrain
I will try and repay
Of how I was the first grass
And right by me you passed

A tear of dew runs down
Drifting into the soil
As you went over to the land of green
I hope he brings you to what you dreamed

I tried to be a secret agent
I smuggled the keys to your heart
Little did I know
You had changed the lock

You came to me like a stranger in the night
Alone left with my thoughts and emotions
You arose from the dark
Pulling me into your snare

I had gone so long without you
But your embrace of death constricted
Reminding me of the time
Keeping me in your clutches

I had struck you down
I had pushed you away forever
We still haven’t yet met again
A shadow of a past eternity

You looked past today
I tried to catch your eye
But when I didn’t
I realized my fault
About a friend who I’m not suuuper close with but close enough, but apparently not

I tap away at the keys
Not a care in the world
Unable to realize what those notes mean to you

I tap away at my keys
Looking for a sense of accomplishment
Looking for the perfect story to be told

I stare at the keys
Not knowing what to do
Pressing but not quite knowing where to head to next

We tap away at keys
Whether be piano or screen
We never tap in time

The sailor looks upon the horizon
Seeing a beautiful isle
Waves the crew to dock
Heading for the shore

As he reaches his destination
He sees sweet fruits
Tall trees and shade
And long elegant beaches

The sailor looks out
Back at the sea
Remembers his sense of love
But pushes it down with another drink

After time
The sailor cannot take it
And as nobody else shall leave
He takes a boat and makes way

Weeks later in the open ocean
Weak and dying, hungry and thirsty
He closes his eyes
Then a smile portrudes

It’s roughly time for a jailbreak
Time to escape from hell
Now that the guards are down and sleeping
Time to sneak from my cell

As I begin to leave
I think of all I’m going for
Then of all the bonds I’m leaving
Which would splinter more?

As I pass through rusted gates
And cross the dusty way
I think again of those behind
And whatever they shall say

But in the end I’ve come to know
This woeful, echoing descant
Many of those who you leave behind
Wouldn’t think of you if they had this chance

I stand out here, truly tested
Looking at the world through new eyes
Thinking I could be normal without it
Thinking I could keep the guise

So this is it, truly the end
Of my long and distant prayer
As I sat back in my prison cell
Knowing nothing else but the pain I’d face out there
Ickabobroe Mar 8
I'm crawling out
out of the pit from whence you threw me

I'm coming back
back to the place where you scorned me

I'm flying free
free from the restraints you kept pulling tighter

I'm walking past
past all the ruins of where you exposed my weakness

I'm storming in
into the life I threw away because of you

I'm here
and now

I'm here to stay

I sit alone
Taking in the view
Listening to my tune

I look at you
I think of what life would be without you
Then I stop

I look around
At all these people
Who say they care

I look inside
I see a wall being rebuilt
Stronger and less vulnerable

But I guess I’ll just sit
Alone and silent
Listening to my tune

There is a word
One word
The greatest desire
To cross the lips

The most powerful word in existence
From someone loved long ago
Yet to show again
Yet to reflect

I despise it
As it out of my reach
And I feel I need it
In order to feel anything again

But I guess we wait
And see the future
To see if the treasure
Can be attained
Been sitting in my drafts forever so I have nothing else to do with it

I met with a vampire today
Standing, freezing, and so unsure
It pierced my heart and soul
Burned me to my truest core

As I sat there in it’s stare
Unable to breathe, think, or go
It whispered with a thundering voice
Asking what I know

I trembled upon the cracked cement
Not knowing what to say
Yet without words or spoken tongue
It went along it’s way

And in that moment filled with fear
I finally understood
The vampire was just myself
Draining my life for good
A little thing I thought of, decided to make it rhyme because why not

Words are used too often
And yet even more misused
Showing our weakness

Such as sadness and pain
Shifting from physical as a child
Simply meaning a splinter or cut

To emotional when older
With shattered dreams
Or failed friendships

You seem to be illiterate
Throwing words you don’t seem to know what they mean
Like love and feelings

You seem to be illiterate
You held my heart in your hands
And slowly crushed it wish the guise of a tender embrace

Maybe I'm illiterate
Unknowing what to say or feel or how to show you
Not knowing how to tell you and pour my heart to you
This one isn't that great ngl, but I'm not going to do much else to it so I'm throwing it out here

Have you ever been at your breaking point
Not sure where you’ll end
But the actions and words are telling you different narratives
And you can’t decipher either

When you’re about to fall and crash
And you can’t quite tell what’s going on
But you know what you feel
You just can’t place it

You know when you’re broken
And you’re picking up the pieces
And then you figure out what broke you
And you make yourself stronger than before

You know when you find it
And you leave your armor untended
And then at the last moment of trust
You feel the warm blood drip down your back

We all search for the perfect words
The ones that will make our heartstrings sing
But once we find them, then what?

There’s no such thing as the perfect words
They come and go as they please without a care
Who are we to tell them their worth

Words are as they are to be
A reflection of who we are when we stare into the dark
Staring us right back, showing our true selves through the night

I’ve hit a barrier
Between good a mediocre
A matter of writing well
And being able to produce

I know it should come from the heart
But call it heart burn
Because I’m burnt out
And can’t say the words I need

You’re rubber I’m night
My words bounce and hide away in the dark
Coming from the shadows
Snaring me like a hunter

And while I’m pulled as a bird from the sky
My doubts flood me
And I just have to ask myself
Is this the life I wanted?
I probably am going to slow down on posting a bit soon, just general stress building up, but I’m all good just gonna lower rate of release soon

The motive of a peoples
The reason we are

The driving force of history
The catalyst of the future

The question asked every day
To learn our being here

The ode to my sadness
The reason of my doubt

The key to all questions
But couldn’t unlock my heart

The question I wonder when I think about you
The question I ask as to the reason I do

My silent cry in the dark
The haunting echoes of a chamber

Why do I miss you?

Why am I the way I am
Why don’t I like my choices
Why am I so regretful in life
It’s simply my nature

It’s just the way I am
It’s just the choices I make
It’s the regrets I face
It’s simply my nature

If that’s just how you are
If those are your choices
If that’s the reason for my regrets
It’s simply your nature

If I still can’t let go
If I overthink everything I do
And keep looking at the past
I can’t stand my nature

We’ve all heard it
The ups and downs
Of life we’ve all felt them both

And life right now
Is like a boat
That’s starting to overflow

And yet with this
This simple truth
I would just like to say

This slant of life
Is going up
And tends to go your way

Do not throw out
These words I say
I mean them serve you well

Your life is short
So don’t hang on
To when you are not well

Alas it comes
My parting words
So please lend me your ear

Don’t give up hope
Don’t get so down
Your happy days are near

Scared of what comes next
As they cannot do anything
To prevent it

When i tell you I'm ok
I could be living
I could be dying

When I say I'm alright
I might be doing great
I could also be breaking down

When I'm fine
I could be happy
Or I could be crashing

But when I say I promise
I mean it

I’m searching for an answer

Looking for a solution within
Every touch
Every breath

Asking questions I know I'll never answer
Or you

I don't know why
I don't know what makes this
I'm lost

Cement pulling me down
Drowning me in the vastness of the void
No choice but to watch the world disappear
No Answer

You’ve given me hope
Not in the sense I imagined
But  none the less

I feel a sense of calm
Burning in my mind
Taking contol
Taking me away from myself

You give me hope
Your given me dreams
I know what I desire
I know what my heart says is true

You’ve shown me your light
You’ve shown me my life
I brought my own emotions out of my head

I can tell what I want
I know what I need
It’s not what I imagined but it’s here

The answer lies in the next step of our lives
And yet at the start
Keeping me glued together
Yet pulled apart

Why do I feel this way
Oh help me through this hell
You have brought me heaven

I am whole alone yet still broken without the pieces of my brain

A period
The end
I don’t want it to come
Yet I know it looms over

I don’t know who I mean to be
But I want to move past who I am now

A pause
But knowing you’ll continue on
Simply a break from reality

I know we aren’t as close
As we used to be
I know we fell apart
Into the sea

I know I should have been better
And done more for you
I know I feel it’s all my fault
But you think the same for you

We push through this abyss
Running from the pain
Hiding from our monsters
Not seeing our true potential

We are our own main hinderance
We hold ourselves back with fear
We keep ourselves innocent
This dark world that we hold far too dear

But through all the pain
Through all the hardship
We pushed through
And made it history

Becoming Frozen
Ickabobroe Jan 17
My heart is icing over
Yours seems to be to
When I think about tomorrow
What is see I hope is true

My heart is icing over
My love is becoming frozen
Our lives could be forever bonded,
But I am not the one you have chosen

My life seems to have ended
But I'll rise from ashes
My ego I've defended
But still my life crashes

I am trying grasp to answers
On why I'm hurting so badly
But when I look, I see why

Why do I still love you
After all that you have done to me
But when I look, it's still there

There's still a glimpse of hope
In what is left of what we have
I still can't let you go

After all I still love you
Although I never got the chance
To say it to your face

My heart is icing over
My love is becoming frozen
Our lives could be forever bonded,
But I am not the one who you have chosen

When Icarus fell from grace
The waves did not catch him
When you cast a glare upon my face
My hope began to grow dim

You crushed me
You destroyed my inner self
You killed me
You’re bad for my health

I thought I could love you
I was wrong
For once in my life
I thought I was in control
So just leave me with my empty soul

I grew up to trust you
You made me who I am
I thought I could be made new
But you were the slaughter and I was the lamb

But I’m coming back
I’m defeating who you tried to make me
I’m stronger than I was before
Back when you used to berate me

And now that life is different
And I’ve moved past
After everything you did
why do these feelings still stay

Do I want you?
Do I need you?
Why do I think that you belong with me?
Where are you?
Who are you?
Not a huge fan of this one but just kinda felt it

You're hurting me more than you'll ever realize
You're causing me more pain than you'll ever imagine
but like the candle to the flame
the flame gives the candle life
and yet slowly brings upon it's death
You deteriorate me
Break me down to dust
And yet like the pheonix
I am reborn

We all feel
Whether it be to others or yourself
Feeling encompasses all
Swaying decisions
Changing us
Hurting us
Saving us
The more we feel the more we learn about ourselves
The more we understand about others
We all feel
Don't hide it from those who should see

Your Image in my Mind
Ickabobroe Nov 2018
I can’t stop my thoughts
From penetrating into my brain
I can’t shake this feeling
That I’ll be lost without you forever

You say I’m ignorant
Or I’m overreacting
But I just can’t
Get out of my head

I’m trapped
With you
In my mind
And I need my way out

I saw you as an angel
But now Lucifer is with you
You fell from your Grace
And I got rid of you

But just like an infection
Pulling at the walls
You tore my foundations
And killed me with thoughts

I’m trapped
With you
In my mind
And I need my way out

I was holding on
Until I realized
Your toxic lies

I was reaching out
Grabbing for your heartstrings
But they had already gone

Gone in the breeze

Music is the root of all
Inspiring good and evil
To show people the light
And the dark
The drummer boy
Pushing the dreams of the troops
The beginning
The end

Those who are lost can be found
Those who seem found may be lost
Those who may help the lost be found, may be both

Some will make others feel lost
Just to try and find themselves
Even if they can’t

Be the light
Show those who may be lost
Help them find the way to where they can be found

— The End —
