Goodnight Light
café Dec 2018
super super super

don't tell my friends
or my family

It's getting too hot in this clown suit

give me a bottle of sunshine
I'm overdosing

no one needs to care for me
don't get mad

we can be friends
I won't spill my secrets

I'm feeling
super super super
▌│█║s̶u̶i̶c̶i̶d̶a̶l̶ █│▌

can I take off the mask
I can't look ahead

nose bleeding
I love taking a leap
a shot of hope

in my life
is a metaphor

who wrote this sad story
where's my sad ending

I should hurt less

I'm still loving you
I'm putting stars in my eyes
hearts in my mouth

I'd love to eat you out
but you keep dancing around

I'm no toy to play around with
stop putting me away

we should make out
kiss and don't tell

we should go out
If no one is around

come lay down

my heart feels like a million bubbles exploding
every time I hear your voice

bubble baths in your bathtub
what do you think

should I hold your hand
holding my breath

sky's so cold
reminds me of her
she always blew me a cold kiss

eating ice cream when it's zero degrees

ice queen
she covers the sky
with an independent gloom

I'm waiting on the snow
she gives the best shows
wearing glittery shoes

eerie feeling
you aren't here with me
I almost felt you beside me

I need to let her go
move on

let the sky fall

I want your good morning
and goodnight

please don't forget me
the memories
are fading

give me your worst
give me your best

give me a little love from you

I want your rain
your everything

a little love from you

give me your fire
your sorrow

aren't new

the days I spent my life with you

I'll always remember that good side of you

Here's your knife back
café Jan 16
Remember when I cut my hands
and wrists
and you told the world
behind my back

I'll remember
when you smoked
did drugs
skipped class
messaged a stranger back

Tell the world
Behind your back

You stabbed me
caught by surprise

I cleaned the knife
ready to get you back

I'm not all about revenge
this is only what you deserve

I need help
You need help

We're never going to help ourselves

Better tell someone
it only hurts more
this way
café Sep 2018
Faces turned to walls

I was talking to the sky
my whole childhood
instead of my mom

I always hugged the moon goodnight
because my father
was never home at night

Walls hear all of the secrets
I slept without a worry
days seem so blurry

Where I would lay in bed
without a thought in my mind

I looked up to trees
and jumped so high
I couldn't breathe

Life seems smaller now
In ways
I can't remember
What it is to be young

My poor veins
carry my blood
so slowly

I'll soon be turned into a wall

There are meteoroids falling into my head
Meteors coming into the sky of my mind

I have no where to go

There's a voice
that whispers sad things
when I'm happy

I'm soft when you're around
then you leave me alone
with a stranger's voice

I'm losing myself
I love the idea of dying soon

There is a shooting star I see in a dream

A fire in the sky

I'm not afraid
of dying with a smile

Finally the voice
will explode
into bits of a meteorite

soft shock
café Oct 2018
I see a lovely sunset
from the opposite side
of the sky
hidden in trees
covered in green
wrapped around orange hues and in sky blue
now fading into
soft shocks
to my heart
I know
I'll find that room
that state of mind
the place where my heart comes together

it's fading out
the dead moon
is rising
my ghost
is crying

a beautiful sunset
is only beautiful
when you're
feeling blue

Greet your mother
mother of lies
ruler of the world

I the evil one
deceive me
there's no noise
I'm wearing white
I camouflage myself
among saints

I've fed myself poison  
my sisters and brothers
don't follow me

I've been distant
I'm the cause
the problem
I'm the wicked one

like a star
full of sin

my blood reeks
of lies

love me

Spare me your love

One day you'll ask for my help
I'll treat you like a stranger

Keep quiet

I wrote a poem
of a poem
about a poem

I wrote you a poem
inspired by a poem
of another poem

you'll never read it

It's catching fire
the ashes are lost

I spent an hour
writing you a letter

where I wrote you a poem

you'll never speak of it

it's hidden in a drawer

catching fire

you'll never see it

let's pray
you can't call an angel
like you summon a demon
choose your side wisely
there's always a bargain
he likes gold coins
broken souls

did you ever believe
you had a guardian angel?

They wouldn't care for such a filthy being

It's mean
emerald leaves turn into gold

today answers will be whispered
inside a ring of fire

I'm throwing away all of my secrets

you said you fell in love
I said that's wrong

You said you're looking to stay
while I'm making you go away

you want emotions and time
I want nothing and emptiness

you're holding on
I'm fallen

you write about them in your diary
I'm done talking to them

please you're hurting yourself being too open
please let go
I'm afraid

no more
I'm cutting off my ears
I want no more

have you not felt disappointment before

let it go

Saw it coming
months away
in my sleep
in my dreams
an afternoon
midnight silence
I saw it coming
miles away
heard it in the wind
water screamed
to me
I saw it coming
in a tree
in a cloud
in my frown
my eyes screamed at me
I failed
I failed
I failed
do you want to know more about me now
I'm not perfect
do you want to talk to me now
I saw it coming
I just didn't want you to see it
I saw it coming
I failed
I knew every morning
this was coming
I didn't care
I still kept going

Now that I've failed
everyone screams at me
everyone looks at me
everyone asks for me
now that I've failed
everyone wants to scare me
I'm weak
I'm not perfect
I'm sorry I took off my mask
when you least expect it

you must hate me now
I should blame myself

I see things from the corner of my eye
I've never told anyone that

back and forth
on my front porch

a man
a lost woman

the monster under my bed
now lies beside me

when you asked me an important question
I lied to you

be happy
it wasn't to your face

camouflaged in the dark
If I see things
I should be their friend

Your God blessed me with no sound

I'll never hear the shadows

Never wake up late

You want a flower

Do you believe in love
When did your heart die

Were you ever happy

I don't want to be disrespectful

I think you're the devil

sitting on a used bed
your presence disappeared into the pillow sheets

opened a journal
like a treasure map

running around
trying to get me back

hiding inside a box
without a lock

almost died
I cried
felt the end of the world

everyone knows me
that's not the truth

I spilled myself on

under a lake

asking myself
why does my heart
feel so heavy

can't hold a pen

I hear odd sounds
as if I lived underwater

a book filled with empty pages
standing in front of me

I should know

I'm running away
from myself

I know myself
that's not the truth

don't come looking around for someone who doesn't exist
don't go loving someone who doesn't feel the same

never do I look down

when you throw me to the floor

I listen to whatever you have to say
and you brag to all your friends

to try and find
I swim through your lies

on my neck
watch them die
and make more again

Water me down
watch me grow

Tear off my petals
pick at the thorns

Caress my leaves
trace the craved lines
into my skin

build me up strong
tear me back down
I was pulled from the ground
only loved for my beauty and liveliness

When I begin to wither
when I begin to wilt
my roots are rotting
I'm yellow with death
pull me apart from the weeds

I dream of pretty bones
and comfy coffins

I rest in peace unloved
killed by roses

Your hands are waiting
To clasp mine

Light eyes meeting mine

They say you're the stars
All you do is burn my heart
Trying to come inside

Multiple times
I said stop

Every time
I'm out
You're already waiting for me

I'm in distress
Never get a moment alone

You hear every word I say

They say you're sunshine
But you keeping burning up my skin

Am I doing the same
Does your heart go insane
Whenever I'm around

Do you feel dizzy
At the sound of my voice

You're making a fire
I'm trying to put it out

I've never had a home

I drowned

My words aren't so deep
They only reach a river's depth

Yet when you write
It's like I'm out by the sea
Your words are layers
Under the earth's soil

I only achieve to describe a tree's leaf
You'll write out the roots

I'm your porcelain doll
Hoping I won't fall

Being with you is like
Dreaming in a dream

You couldn't get any better to me

I don't want to come down from your love

Heart stops

Let me fall

You'll be the last voice I hear

one will touch the ground
the other touches the sky

are you having fun without me
It's been forever since
we last whispered
secrets into the afternoon

when I whispered
show me forever
I did not expect
from your part

climb onto this seesaw
whoever reaches the ground
doesn't have a chance to touch the clouds

are you alright
I know I'm doing fine
without you
doesn't mean I can't miss you
