Life Acceptance
Skyler M Dec 4
Change this pace,
This year’s home is far away,
I’m okay with it,
This year I’m gonna stand high,
I’m okay with the sound of the future.

Reach out now,
This time I've got my harpoon,
I'm okay with defending you,
This winter has been the best of my last few years.
I'm okay with getting stuck.

I accept it.
Skyler M Dec 3
Where do I want my hands,
These detached brainteasers.

Inside my closet?
Or under my desk?

BurnOut?
Skyler M Dec 2
It's been difficult to write lately,
Stuck inside the words of Rhymezone,
It's going on day eighty,
Can't write without breaking my collarbone.

You might see,
I'm outside,
standing with the banshee,
I'm so awake, wide.
Skyler M Oct 23
Arms out against the cold,
Wind is blowing, I'm told,
"Possibility becomes reality."
I just wanna run down the town,
Look at the seeds that you have sown.

The seats you have left untouched,
Are feeling like you were unjust,
To the friends you have lost,
Sing that song of Home,
It'll forgive you for Rome.

Appreciate.
Skyler M Oct 22
Appreciate,
The letters behind your eyes,
Which scribe each and every line,
That you lean on all the time.

Appreciate,
Whatever you've got left,
That's got you smiling,
If if it's got you living another day.

Appreciate,
Your every bite of food,
Which keeps you content,
Even if it's never enough.

Appreciate,
Your life is equivalent to mine and the rest of the human race,
Pretending the smile might be the way,
But I promise that you can live another day.

Ode to Pilots
Skyler M Oct 21
I stand, here in the trees
An ode to a song
And to my life as it roars
Satisfied with the direction
I walk on not a ledge but a bridge,
Hands on the ropes to keep steady

I stand, thanking myself and the people whom surround me,
You’re all contributors to this success,
Thank you from the bottom of this patched soul.

Ode to home, my love, and my friends,
I’m steady and on my way,
Compassion turned passion,
I’m so happy and overjoyed,
That your support keeps me grounded.

Check on me from time to time,
Cause I won’t lie I get down,
But I haven’t cut these wrists since I’ve turned 17,
I feel as if I’ve escaped, I’m in Trench, I’m not alone.

I’m alive.
I’m alive
Alive
Alive
Alive
Alive
I’m alive
I’m alive

November 2nd
Skyler M Sep 27
Could I cry some more in a single day?
The adrenaline that rushes through me,
It's got me holding on so tight,
It's got me grinning to wide.

The yellow will wash over my skin,
Flash my fears away for a night,
Leave me high on my own joy,
You have my heart and my soul.

Hold my hand with me, let's scream some lyrics,
I wanna hold you high above me and show you the best of me,
I wanna show you where I've been since I've been gone,
Believe in me.

The yellow will wash over my skin,
Flash my fears away for a night,
Leave me high on my own joy,
You have my heart and my soul.

See a Moon
Skyler M Sep 27
Ladies, gentlemen, everyone in between, and inside out.
We're not saints nor are we sinners,
Where does the lie lay,
In a bed of withered flowers,
Underneath our grandmother's porch,
Are we inspired by the truth,
Or the choices we make?

Have we learned?
From the best of people,
Or the most favorite songs,
I bet we've learned.

These are all the people who have never seen a moon,
Have you ever seen a moon within a well-lit room?
Cause we honestly never have and I'm not sure we ever will,
There's some glimpses here and there while we're jogging out there,
But never have we ever seen the brightest, fullest moon.

Have we learned?
From the best of people,
Or the most favorite songs,
I bet we've learned.
Skyler M Sep 25
Jaundice on my skin,
Texture like old paper,
With every page turned,
I am learning something new.

Sit up,
It's not bedtime yet,
Sit up,
You have some ideas,
Sit up,
You can do this.

Take care of my nails,
While I stand in the center,
Of my palm while dreaming,
November might take me home.

Sit up,
The list is incomplete,
Sit up,
Your name isn't written,
Sit up,
The sun is yours to grasp.

Jaundice on my eyeballs,
I haven't drank a drop in my life,
Yet I feel drunk with shaky legs,
And I won't stop feeling so inspired.

Untitled
Skyler M Sep 23
Spineless creation of untold creativity,
Restricted to the point of losing the bones in his hands,
Did the bones in his hands figure out where to go,
After years of doubts and suicidal thoughts.

The machine just might be calling,
Puncture the skin,
You better hope this is the right choice,
Cause where else could this man go?

Question his intentions as his intestines twist and jump,
Still searching for something to focus his soul on,
It seems so close right now but will it stay that way,
He sure prays that it does because good god he's nervous.

The machine just might be calling,
Puncture the skin,
You better hope this is the right choice,
Cause where else could this man go?

Golden Throne
Skyler M Sep 23
I've gone to show,
The kingdom's golden throne,
What their intentions mean to me,
And how I wanna believe.

Yet, still I stand here, alright but alone in spirit,
I'm trying to find salvation inside this flowing heart of mine,
Changing it's tune with every turn of events,
If you really mean anything to me, you'd always be changing.

I have never traveled so far for you,
Though I've shot you all three times,
I promise that I just might come around,
In time...

I won't hold myself down,
By the natures of science laws,
Or maybe I will,
It depends on my mood for the day,
I'm just feeling the need to apologize.

Yet, still I stand here, alright but alone in spirit,
I'm trying to find salvation inside this flowing heart of mine,
Changing it's tune with every turn of events,
If you really mean anything to me, you'd always be changing.

An Arrow to the Knee
Skyler M Sep 17
Standing on the bridge, we are.
Your hand interlocked with mine,
Nearly a year has gone by and I only fall more every day,
I can't help but think about taking an arrow to my knee,
Just so I can tell you what this really means to me,
What you truly mean to me.

I've been backed up against the wall,
And there's been times where I've witnessed innocent killings,
Then again I watch my false father stare at me,
I didn't know what to do with my ******* life.

Then on that bridge,
Your hands interlocked in mine,
There's no backing out as I stare,
Your eyes appear grey but are more alike to a kaleidoscope to me,
And I can't wait to take an arrow to my knee,
Just to see that you truly know your worth in life,
As what I am worth in life.

I can't wait to take an arrow to my knee,
And step down with a heart in my hand,
You're my life goal and accomplishment,
My best friend and my dearest supporter,
Won't you fight for a better life with me,
Cause I'll fight for you and you'll fight for me.

Bench in the Woods
Skyler M Sep 13
Bench on the path,
He sits in the middle of the woods
Covered in the prints of time,
He’s withstood howls of anger,
And cries of anguish,
In the middle of the woods.

Bruises and cuts were tended to,
As were disconnected friends,
Two lovers brought closer,
And a father with his child.

Bench on the path,
He’s still in the middle of the woods,
Brimming with memories of animals,
The ones who died,
and the ones who fled,
In the middle of the woods.

Mountain Frozen
Skyler M Sep 10
Everyday, I can see through the drafts,
You're sleepier with every hitch,
The snow's seeming closer as the days grow longer,
And once the longest day of the year pasts,
I know we'll still forge on through mountains.

Mount Everest will be jealous by the amount of people you've killed,
From your everlasting freezing weathered heart,
Maybe you didn't mean to but I won't allow myself to leave,
I'll put on some mountain boots and hike,
Up your slopes I will forge on.

The vices inside that repeat your new boot turned over,
How you've changed, my love, it's inspiring,
Even to the towering Himalayas,
I'll watch you eat some ***** snow before you spit it up,
You're starting to hate the taste and want some fresh ice,
I understand that you're getting too hot.

Mount Everest will be jealous by the amount of people you've killed,
From your everlasting freezing weathered heart,
Maybe you didn't mean to but I won't allow myself to leave,
I'll put on some mountain boots and hike,
Up your slopes I will forge on.

Unsatisfied
Skyler M Sep 6
Potholes, I'm swerving in and out,
Botched lips, hooked on tripping n' falling,
Taught ya', that you're perfectly alright,
The way that you are.

Stop the sound of unsatisfaction.

Passenger seat, I know that it's you,
Asking her again, "Talk to me again, dear."
Massacred eyes, the confusion doesn't scare me,
Cause you're the best that I've got.

Stop the sound of unsatisfaction.

Unwell boy, went to the acute again,
Sell everything, this stress will be undone,
Now yell, I won't watch myself fall,
so I will hold onto you.

`Half-Alive`
Skyler M Jul 9
Half-alive, dragging ourselves through the trees,
Our legs seem to be missing.
They might be up and living our dreams,
I can feel the thorns scrape my elbows,
Can you feel it too?

Verify if you're real with a wave of a white flag,
From the depths of the undergrowth,
We're getting scratched up by unforgiving roots.

When the blue moon sets over the horizon,
The sun starts to rise and I'm left alone,
The thoughts in my head leave me to be,
Is this good? I don't really know.
I've spent a good portion of my life wondering if i'll even live past 18,
Though the background is static,
Everything in front seems to be happy to be here.

Verify if you're real with a wave of a white flag,
From the depths of the undergrowth,
We're getting scratched up by unforgiving roots.

Changing or cursing- either way,
It's a game we're done playing,
Our legs may be long gone,
Fortunately, you're right here,
So I'll stare at these stars until I figure out you're truly here to stay.

Son of the Skeleton
Skyler M Jun 25
The son of a skeleton does not confide,
With each and every line I write inside,
When the death of the eyes is asked,
I cannot answer with anything but a rasp.

Times two, times three,
Watch very carefully,
As we all pay the fee,
To ask a life of more than being-
I leave- not free-

"Introspect" I tell my frame, who couldn't really care less,
I will try and stare through the mesh,
Which seems to mask the mess,
On the ground the son was sown,
He grew and grew until be became stone.

Equals two, Equals three,
Minus four, Minus five,
The son of a skeleton,
Is shot full of sedative,
Is this definitive?

The Trail
Skyler M Jun 20
White river calmly flows,
Her sudden moves never too wild,
Along come the people that she tows,
In retrospect, I should have appreciated the mild.

Along the trail, I'll follow the stones,
If anything's true I won't break my arm,
With the things inside my bones,
Things I collected keep me warm.

And the trees become so green,
The moss on the rocks take the sunlight,
Where have I gone and where have I been?
It's been so long since I've fought the fight.

Along the trail, I'll follow the stones,
If anything's true I won't break my arm,
With the things inside my bones,
Things I collected keep me warm.

Kindle this fire,
Feed it with moss,
Singe all your body's hairs,
It's the only way to learn.

Rearrange this damaged root,
That sits at my feet in defeat,
I want to see it grow without the soot,
Slowly becoming stale from this seat.

The Wolf Mask
Skyler M Jun 20
Pour some acid into those eyes,
It's time to forage for souls tonight,
Don the wolf mask by your side,
Oh, Warren my boy, you've made it thus far.

Walk through graveyards and find your mind,
For it's as empty as your very own coffin,
Hide behind trees and bright green bushes,
The ghost boy is haunting 'bout this time.

His hollow dark eyes and shallow sunken chest,
The suit on his frail skin is much too large,
Ghost boy can't be bother to trip to a tailor,
Just be glad you can't see what's underneath.

For the dark hollow eyes are a mask of disguise,
And the darkness of the suit holes scares even the ebony of the sky,
Don't doubt his name- and don't scout his dens,
Warren, I must say, you're not as safe as you were anymore.

Don the leather coat that sits near the stone,
You've got to find home,
For ghost boy has ways to make you jump right out of your grotesque little mask,
He doesn't want friends,
Only something to feed.

Pour some acid into those eyes,
It's time to forage for souls tonight,
Don the wolf mask by your side,
Oh, Warren my boy, you've made it thus far.

Obsession
Skyler M May 29
I can give you everything,
I can take you anywhere,
Whatever you want it's yours,
Oh you'll be the queen of this deadbeat land.
I am your ever so loyal partner in crime.
You've bewitched me.

As a king,
I'll break anyone who comes close,
Their heads on sticks and guts for confetti,
Eyes as fried snacks, don't you appreciate me?

Say you love me, won't you?
All those who broke your heart,
Are being torn apart,
Don't look at me like that, lovely baby girl,
After all, God has brought us together,
And with divine intervention,
Comes a craving like no other.

As a king,
I don't want to but-
I'll bury you alive inside your own bedroom,
The family you knew and choose to bother to find you,
Will only see the end of an ax,
I worship you so don't worry about me,
Just listen to God- he's speaking- can't you hear?

I'm obsessed,
I'll confess,
I've wanted to see whats under your skin since the day you said hello,
I promise all I do is worth it,
The blood you've seen was requested by the Father, the Holy Spirit, and the Son.

As a king,
I'll break anyone who comes close,
Their heads on sticks and guts for confetti,
Eyes as fried snacks, don't you appreciate me?
A little tale about a man obsessed with a girl- and how far he goes to prove it.

Creature of War
Skyler M May 22
I am a creature of war,
A soldier unable to soar,
I've written of battle,
And I've managed to travel,
Through No-Mans-Land,
Just to withstand firsthand an unmanned stand.

But then I lost my hand
to cranking the crank to the Gatling gun,
I was much too brave,
And to my dismay I broke the grave I was lowered,
Now I'm sobered, shoulder to shoulder with my polarized,
I lost my hand,
to cranking the crank to the Gatling gun.

What a sight to foresee,
Right exactly where I stand with the key,
On my tiptoes under the crows,
It snows but I'll grow,
No more guns for me,
No more breaking into pleas.

But then I lost my hand
to cranking the crank to the Gatling gun,
I was much too brave,
And to my dismay I broke the grave I was lowered,
Now I'm sobered, shoulder to shoulder with my polarized,

Disaster Night
Skyler M May 20
I left a note outside my room,
So sorry you had to read,
Please don't open my door,
There's no space for both you and me,
Just leave me be.

Stars rain through the ceiling,
Gutting all the feeling,
Building a roof seems far too hard,
I'm just gonna quit for now.

I'm a little disaster,
A mess inside a bed,
Inside a wall where all the mice and rats meet,
To congregate my death and celebration after that,
I'm not joking when I say that I'd like to cry,
Watch me cry but don't say goodbye.

Stars crash into the ground,
******* up my day even further,
I tried making you happy but I'm getting mad,
I'm so sorry that I'm ******* angry,
It's so abhorrently stupid, I'm talking of course,
About my stupid **** head.
**** head.

Trees Can Scream
Skyler M May 20
Have you ever heard a tree,
Open it's mouth and scream?
It's heart will jump when you tear off it's leaves,
And it's guts will lump,
When you don't listen to it's pleas.

Get out of my head,
I'm chopping down forests,
Get out of this world,
Dumb teen kid,
I'm sorry I called you that.

The night stars inside the sky,
Will break your jaw if you run,
Rocks will trip you up just to see you cry,
But I think that cave will keep you safe, son.

Get out of my head,
I'm chopping down forests,
Get out of this world,
Dumb teen kid,
I'm sorry I called you that.

Mess With Me
Skyler M May 20
Black leather chair with empty classroom desks,
Summer is catching up with a piña colada in its hand,
****, let's find a chill space 'cause I'm sick today,
Empty halls with spilled green tea, it's slicked the ground,

Ugly face, Be Bold, Colorful skull, and Miss Substitute,
Lined up in a bright pink row,
Explore, Target, In the now,
The Great Gatsby, I forgot to read it, am I gonna pass well I don't know.

Reflections from soda cans with my face,
*****, greasy black laptop screen,
Kick it back cause I don't give a ****,
You're a ****** and I'm so much dumber.

****** LED light up my room so I can catch my target,
Which sits on my bed as I sit at my desk,
Well boys will be boys as he punches me for being mean,
I'm 'bout just eighteen and I haven't learned anything.

Worn To Nothing
Skyler M May 9
My corpse worn to nothing,
Could I prove that I am something?
The world might come to an end,
Unless you've got a hand to lend.
Every night I need to comprise,
It's proven worthy to be concise.

In the morning,
Send a warning,
I'll be there soon.

Alien ink thinks to itself,
While it sits upon the shelf,
In the corner of my vision,
It's a collision, a kaleidoscope,
microscopic, atomic atom particles,
I don't have any obstacles,
Other than my fears and self-destruction.

In the morning,
When it starts warming,
My corpse starts forming, reforming,
Send me a text,
I'll catch up to you next.

Postmortem
Skyler M May 6
I just wanna settle down,
Not in a town,
But in a throne,
With a crown,
No such thing as a frown when I'm here,
Yet there's such a thing as fear,
What I hear by my ear could possibly be tears.

I'm a ******* stupid dreamer,
Listen to me because I'm getting meaner,
This isn't my demeanor either,
I'm just a ***** mouth-breather.

Frustrated because I'm not there,
Watch as the air gets heavier,
My legs bare of flesh,
I'm a fresh threat,
of a system of mass warfare.

I'm not a king and that's a problem,
Set up those marksmen and watchmen,
postmortem clever little criminal.

You're my ride or die,
You're my number one high,
Don't ask me why,
Cause I won't reply.

You're not so simple,
Your hand's a handle,
Let's shoot to the route of hopefulness.

Break Out
Skyler M May 6
When the world came crashing down,
Your shoulders were breaking out of this town.

Your skin doesn't stick together like it used to when you were young,
Watching the spiders as they are strung,
From the wall you're a nobody's girl,
I'm here to hold you as you hurl,
The catastrophes your eyes have taken,
and if I'm not mistaken,
you're in love with me,
I swear I won't flee.

Keep your demons close,
Taking all of those blows,
I don't know how you do it,
I'd have quit and had a fit,
You're nothing but a husk,
Waiting for dusk to break fake fallacies,

I said that, "I wanna see you happy"
Well, let's not get too sappy,
Otherwise I just might cry,
You're no stranger to asking why,
I'm a mama's boy you're just a broken toy,
but you're gonna wanna stick with me,
I'll show you every tree by the sea,
I'll reveal what the hell they mean by smile,
I never wanna see you on an Isle alone.

Eyes That Fall
Skyler M Apr 26
Fall down and scrape your knees,
Hit your head and make your nose bleed,
Cry so hard and break your own soul,
Maybe even break my heart.

Well I didn't know it'd be so hard,
Watching you break your arms,
Holding you oh-so tight,
Just to keep your eyes from falling out.

Feeling bad because I forced you,
Pushed you down some stairs you weren't ready to go down,
Now your guts have been revealed,
Your mother won't leave you alone,
And everyone's gonna know your guts aren't red,
But a deep sea green,
A disease made up of a broken child,
And maybe even some teeth you've been missing since second grade.

You asked me to promise you that I will plant my roots,
And I do, oh god I do,
My tree trunks have been still since the day I kissed your cheek,
You are worth my soul and more,
And should you leave me for the underworld,
I would follow you right down,
Some would call that unhealthy but I've got my future so far and hopeful just from looking at you.

Well I didn't know it'd be so hard,
Watching you break your arms,
Holding you oh-so tight,
Just to keep your eyes from falling out.
Skyler M Apr 25
I've been searching,
I don't have much time,
Cause time will run out,
All I can do is give you my address,
Maybe you'll find me there,
But maybe you won't,
Cause I'll be out.

Looking under rocks,
Throwing stones into the river,
Looking through grass,
Chewing seeds until my teeth wear,
Looking behind sheds,
And breaking inside to get to the tools.

I'll forget to leave a note,
And you'll wonder where I am,
If I'm searching for a God,
Or my indestructible purpose,
I sometimes wonder,
If purpose if my God,
Because that's all I pray to,
Yet despite my conclusion,
I'm still...

Looking under rocks,
Throwing stones into the river,
Looking through grass,
Chewing seeds until my teeth wear,
Looking behind sheds,
And breaking inside to get to the tools.

Closing In On Itself
Skyler M Apr 19
In the nighttime we,
In the nighttime we become alone,
Welcome to our secret dreams,
These screams that meditate our isolation,
Ice under our bed frames keep the fire low,
Sedated is the way that is way inside of me.

Now the sky is closing up in itself,
Give me your eyes,
Time won't matter once we're home,
Just don't look at the ground below yourself.

The fire under the bed,
The fire under the bed, oh, there it goes,
Let it go.
It wasn't an invitation or introspection,
But I guess the point of facing a new direction is to move ahead,
Ruckus before our feet become coals and hot bones,
Not until we move again will the sun appear from the black hole,
I'm disappointed in the end, when it's just laying down,
Let us go,
Watch us go into a brand new home.

Now the sky is closing up in itself,
Give me your eyes,
Time won't matter once we're home,
Just don't look at the ground below yourself.

Address These Purposes
Skyler M Apr 12
I address a lot of people,
And a lot of strangers,
To them I tell stories about a promised world,
Yet I never reveal the secret of it all,
Cause I don't really know, myself.

Whether it's heaven or something we make,
I just want the peace of mind that I'm not alone in this,
Hard to speak your mind when your mind is clogged up.

I'm trying to figure it out- what's the purpose of it all?
But I've noticed that the purpose becomes worthless when you compare yourself,
If the drawings in my notebook were ever to be sold, I would make not a cent because- as I'm told by my head- everyone's better than me,
So let the purpose be worthless and pave your own world,
The path has never been set, you're walking a grassy road that hasn't been trodden just yet.

Whether it's heaven or something we make,
I just want the peace of mind that I'm not alone in this,
Hard to speak when your mind is clogged up.

Speak Certainly
Skyler M Apr 8
I'm sorry that life,
Seems to want to **** your light,
It's pretty complicated I get it,
But just stick by me, don't fret it,
We're ******* up heads,
Stuck in a warp in a bed by a park,
We'll wander at that park until dark,
Once it's dark we're gonna embark,
On a road, on declining steep,
Until we take it and reap what we sow.

Visit that old dome,
Back at the bad home,
Where all the nightmares seem to get you down,
Now, I don't wanna see you frown, but it's only natural,
In the memories it's just a fracture of all-
All those inspiring killing storms,
If it was your thoughts that you form-
Talk to me in this school, in this house, in this landscape,
Where you seem to make your own tape fake-
It's way up a drain,
You're a mother's main name to pain,
At least that's what she tells you.

I'm sorry that life,
Seems to want to **** your light,
It's pretty complicated I get it,
But just stick by me, don't fret it,
We're ******* up heads,
Stuck in a warp in a bed by a park,
Now in that park I want you to start,
To imagine yourself in place away from here,
Whether it's far or near,
You need to understand that life is what you'll make it,
It's time to stop faking it so that you can take it,
Bringing living back to reality,
Instead of resulting in casualty.

Compact Crimes
Skyler M Apr 2
Vibrant Jade colors mask the anxiety in your eyes,
I'm not blind and I can see right through you,
Perfectly compact our tiny useless fears,
Stop looking down at the ground,
Look at me before I take you to class.

Building beast borders bipolar,
Masses mourn my many mornings,
Passing pictures practice painting,
Could the coming crown create fiction?

Don't understand what I mean?
That's okay, baby boy,
You'll understand the words,
And with the words you can create universes through a mindful eye,
I'm a mind full boy with a mindful manner,
You're a savior in my ****** head.

Viruses vibrant violet vices,
Flair, flaunt, fictional foes,
Dead done deal, did do it's dying,
Green grass to Gruesome gore.

Who Else?
Skyler M Apr 2
Swinging on the swings,
Like little kids, you and I,
We're kinda messed up and a bit gross too,
But I wanna stay kids with you,
Don't wanna be working-class just yet.

Who else would it be?
I can't see?
I can't understand?
I can't cry again tonight.

Curl up in my lap,
Sleep away the nightmares,
I'll keep you safe,
Inside our playground tonight, my dear,
It's freezing outside so stick with me,
By the way, I'm in love with you.

Who else would it be?
I can't see?
I can't understand?
I can't cry again tonight.

That Special Miller
Skyler M Apr 1
You can bet I've broken so many metaphorical bones,
You can bet I've collected so many cursed tokens,
You can bet I've been selected to get my head shacked, she said depression,
I said repression,
Cause denying makes the truth all the more shady,
And then I've shaken to fading on the daily,
I'm a killer of a very special Miller,
Or perhaps that was the killer of me.

Now I'm a special boy,
Taken and shaken around like a toy,
You can confirm my death with many people,
Those who build steeples and feasible sentences,
I'm a prototype of a man,
Just watch as I ran to the sand underneath the sparkling grand moon man.

Take me up into the wind,
Bring me to the sinners den,
I will take his rusted hand,
And escape without a stand.

You can bet I've murdered so many beasts,
You can bet I've ruined so many well-lit feasts,
You can bet that I've introspected, to the point where I've retrospected into the infected past,
I keep on regretting going fast,
You're stuck in my head now get out before I pluck you out,
Tuck and roll to **** at everything that I lay eyes on.

Cause denying makes the truth all the more shady,
And then I've shaken to fading on the daily,
I'm a killer of a very special Miller,
Or perhaps that was the killer of me.

Cause denying makes the truth all the more shady,
And then I've shaken to fading on the daily,
I'm a killer of a very special Miller,
Or perhaps that was the killer of me.
A message to that ***** up I called a father.

A Town and a Man
Skyler M Mar 29
Laugh at me,
I’m gonna dance and yell,
I’m the reason you’re in love,
Now shut up and give me a kiss.

You’re a town full of sinners,
I’m a man with a flavor of bitter wine,
Together we make an empire.

Break down me,
I’m gonna scream and cry,
I’m the reason you broke your skin,
Aren’t I?
Thinking that I’m a figure eight,
Round and around,
No different than the last.

I’ve been stuck since freshman year,
I act like I drink too much caffeine,
I feel the need to apologize so hey, I’m sorry,
I’m learning that growing up is the way forward today again.

You’re a town full of hate,
I’m a man who tastes of bittersweet ****,
Together we make a vengeance filled empire.

Metaphoric Colors
Skyler M Mar 18
Green and yellow,
What the hell does it mean,
When it hazes over my eyes,
Like a lazy autumn evening,
I keep being called lazy,
And I am, God knows I am.

"Just stop with these colors,
They aren't very good metaphors,
Cause nobody knows what you mean,
And you're just a stupid kid,
Walking a lonesome road,
All your friends will die one day,
But not before you do."

There goes that voice in my cranium,
Spewing and brewing those maddening sentences,
I know for a fact that It's already pact,
I've got a future,
I just need some time to suture,
This broken underlying voice,
He doesn't know that he has a choice,
To be happy or sad,
It's been sad for all this time,
I'm urging him on to make the decision for happiness.

Elusive
Skyler M Mar 16
The concussion of my life,
The timeline so out of order,
Beating me across the head,
The confession so out of place,
And I’m scared what they may see,
If I say anything to someone.

Hello, little stuffed animals,
And elusive little illusions,
The day wasn’t so great,
Could I get it all out to you?
Though you say nothing-
I’m feeling somewhat better.

Shadows in the corners of my eyes,
Encourage things so inevitably strange,
I’m so inevitably strange,
And I can’t wrap my head around my own complex emotions,
I’m trying my best but I’m getting so ******,
Once again I turn,
Back to the plushies on my bed.

Hello, little stuffed animals,
And elusive little illusions,
The day wasn’t so great,
Could I get it all out to you?
Though you say nothing-
I’m feeling somewhat better.

Start of Days
Skyler M Mar 11
Behind your eyelids I can see,
A entourage of demons,
They'll make you feel alone and break your veins.

I will tell them to step down,
Cause I'm in front of your Irises,
And I'm the one to tell you what's truth from false.

Cover Me
Skyler M Mar 6
Cover me from the rain,
With the tarp you stole from the neighbor's garage,
I'm a sponge that's ****** up too much liquid,
Anymore and I just might gain some weight,
With the weight that rests on my shoulders I don't want anymore,
Cause my frail knees might crumble under me,
And I will lay face down on the ground,
Unable to make a sound and while you surround, I'll be breaking down.

Paper-Thin
Skyler M Mar 4
Forecast had been getting me down,
A puzzle-piece brain rearranging,
Shaking the foundations of my sanity,
Produced for myself, an island alone,
Like Atlantis I would sink to disappear,
Expected to never be found again.

It's stormy,
My strain forming,
Wished I was a story,
Make believe,
Fictional,
Paper-thin product producing purpose.

Instead I was holding onto hot coals,
How in all of the ocean was I alive,
After all the waves and the sharks,
I was alive.

Out of Here
Skyler M Mar 1
The key to your mind was locked away,
Inside a box, Inside a closet,
And every corner of your head kept everyone away,
Wake up,
Wake up,
Wake up for me,
Wake up for me.
We're getting out of here,
We're getting out of here.
Out of here.

Breathless Men
Skyler M Mar 1
Breathing inspires thinking,
A breathless man is passionless,
Open up those eyes and look at fear,
For fear wants you to see,
That it's the only thing standing in your way.

Make your excuses,
But once you open your mouth,
You'll find you can yell so loud,
That maybe even space could hear you.

I don't mind if you're stuck in the room,
I was stuck there too and it's up to you,
To find a way out of it's damage,
Fear will crumble over you and,
ensnare you until you breathe again.

Find a way to breathe,
Find a way to breathe.

Below your eyelids is a color,
A color that inspires feeling,
And a feeling will sing something foreign yet inviting,
So take it out and crush them into your palms,
Live again,
Do it and breathe again.

Lamb of Someone
Skyler M Feb 28
Choose your ghost to fall into,
Two clouds make a whole storm,
And the thunder will rumble,
As the lightening strikes,
Through the ground comes the faith you lost,
Wrap that faith around your neck,
Hope that God comes to save,
While you get thrashed against the floor,
You're screaming out for more,
And you or I stretched towards the ceiling,
Where the clouds formed the snow,
Inside your weathered room.

Nothing's gone right,
Mr. Lake is a figment of your imagination,
Poison boy keeps bothering you,
And Wool Kid's got his hood in your mouth.

You wanted to be a son,
A lamb of something so far, far away,
Of something you never believed to exist,
Yet here you lay, begging for forgiveness,
Knees to the ground and head tilted,
You were tired of rhymes and ***** bones,
Set fire, set fire, set fire to yourself,
I'm getting sick of pretending it wasn't so bad,
Cause I don't know where I'd be if I hadn't been so strange.

Nothing's gone right,
Mr. Lake is a figment of your imagination,
Poison boy keeps bothering you,
And Wool Kid's got his hood in your mouth.

Untitled
Skyler M Feb 27
Lead me to hedges instead of ledges,
I'll take it in slow to rest my bow,
Upon wooded trees will be me.

I was torn and forlorn that I was born,
Why I was so twisted as they insisted,
That I must conform to not transform,
A better person that was inside for sometime.
Skyler M Feb 27
Nearly over,
Nearly defeated,
Nearly there,
Or nearly here.

Almost gone,
Almost broken,
Almost shown,
Or almost grown.

Bordering time,
Bordering death,
Bordering blood,
Or bordering ledges.

Now alive,
Now ready,
Now built up,
And now looking up.


The past builds to the present.
