I can still feel the numbness entering my bloodstream,
And my stomach wringing once reality’s claws ripped into me.  
My chest flooded with an emptiness I’d hoped to never come to know,
An emptiness as heavy as the heavens right before a storm.
Resistance would be futile, so I began to let myself drift,
Hoping that by doing so I would somehow cease to exist.
I wanted to scream and shout, but only silence rung in my ears.
Waves of loneliness crashed over me as you confirmed my deepest fear.

Hook, line, and sinker, I fell for your sweet deceit.
I should have recognized the changes, so subtle and discrete.
You can love someone deeply,
You can trust someone implicitly,
but truly knowing them is never a guarantee.
First poem in a while. Feedback super welcome!

Days on end my mind can't sleep
As your words snake venom inside of me
As your hands leave my body undressed
You bless me with your lips of Judas.

Crucified as you hoist me high
Splayed out for you to try
bedeviling, like I'm another toy
Another pawn seduced by your ploy

Every time the Devil comes knockin
I open my door and let you walk in
And with every step you grow stronger
Because my deepest sins within me you conjure.

Use my body as your prayer
And leave my soul completely bare.
Use my innocence as your sacrifice
And leave my soul for you to sanctify.

***** me with your pretty lies
Push me down--look me in the eyes
Soil my body as you say you love me,
while I'm whimpering, "This can't be.

Everybody was an angel in the beginning,
but that was before we found sinning
Now you ravage my Good Grace,
as I see the Devil in your face
Wow. This came out so well, Ashley! I'm glad I had a chance to work with you on this, and I'm glad you got your writer's block out of the way. You are truly skilled, and you have a knack for raw emotion!

Guys, be sure to check her out!

My soft moans are the lullabies that put your inhibitions to bed,
And awaken the thoughts that awaken your head.
Our bodies speak stories a thousand years old
Of lovers speaking with tongues without control
Of beginnings enticing enough to lead us to sin
Of endings explosive enough to make us begin again.

There is a hell
Beyond your worst
A place where living
Becomes a curse

A restless feeling
Trapped within your gut
When you know your time
Is almost up

Passion dies
In the fear of night
There's no comfort
In the struggle for life

The heart sinks
The mind slips
Even the hand
Can hardly grip

The darkest day of my soul
Shines compared to this lowest low.

It's okay
To take a moment
And remind yourself

Pull  yourself together
Wipe those tears up
Stand up
Start fighting back

We've all had our heart broken
Remind yourself about what is beautiful

It's always better than it seems
Most of the time

Be too stubborn
Never give up

So save me one more time
So I can remember all the pain

And look me in the eyes
Pump through my body like *******

Rip apart my conscious mind
Rip out my soul to be condemned

And look me in the eyes
So I can tell you once again

I keep
forgetting to
forget you,
neglecting to
regret you.
