angel 3d
With all the friends I lose,
I think of you and
How I couldn't save you

Sometimes I think
what if it was you here
instead of me

And then I'm stuck here
wishing it was you here,
not me
We were only twelve years old vee. We were two too young suicidal kids trying to keep one another alive. I ******* miss you with all my heart, mi flore.
angel 4d
They gave me back
my scale after awhile

I tried to be discreet

But today I was caught
looking down
at the numbers
between my feet

My eyes were misty
and I wanted to cry

but I felt a presence so
I blinked until
I was no longer visually
on the verge of crying
When I was a little girl, I hated being so skinny. Now that I'm older, that's all I force myself to be. To those in my family bigger than me, they scoff at my "dilemma" saying I'm lucky. My feelings are invalidated because I should be lucky to be small. It's exactly the reason I cry when I gain weight- you made me believe if I did, I would no longer be pretty. But I should be grateful, right?
angel 5d
We stare at one another
in thirty-degree weather
it's a Wednesday morning
no one knows that we're together

I've finally calmed down
As he holds me in his arms

"What do you want to do?"
He says into my ear
"You can't be out all night
you've got to go home soon-"

I sigh, not able to talk
but he understands:
I don't want to be alone
and I don't want to be home

He puts his head
in the crook of my neck
and begins to cry

This is what I needed-
vulnerability without
and he was the perfect guy

I play with his hair
as he lets it out
I guess we both aren't
who we seemed to be
But at this moment
I don't question anything
I just needed a presence and so did he. He's made it clear we aren't friends;
we were just hurting. Thank you for letting it out, and letting me vent.
Thank you for the blanket, and as you said, "hopefully we never meet up like this again."

last session
angel 5d
Last night was our last meet,
that our time together was up.

She advised me to stay on my break,
but what's the point
if there's no check-up.

I don't think I've cried so hard in a day,
I guess this is how it ends..

Far away from home, I'm back at the railroads
Crying and incoherently screaming my pain at the wind.
My voice is gone and my tears have stained-
I didn't expected to mourn my ********* this way
angel 5d
You said you'd always be there for me,
now I know it's not true,
You said you'd always be there for me,
but only when it's convenient for you.
I'm all alone. Scared. And your nowhere to be found.
It hurts to know I am desperate enough to drop everything for you,
but I'm either not enough or too much.

Stitched Heart
angel 6d
He put me on a pedestal
as he sews my heart together.

He would later push me away,
claiming that I deserved better.

As he shut the door I noticed,
he accidentally stitched thread to his jeans.

So as he kept walking,
he pulled my heart;
it slowly falls apart at the seams.
A heart a doctor can't fix

No Answer
angel 6d
I was looking for an answer,
yet never received a response.

I know that you had seen it,
wonder what were your thoughts.

I'm just looking for some closure,
secretly something more...

Please, just be direct and honest;
that's all I'm asking for.
Well, did you? Would you let me know?

Losing you to Karma
angel Jan 6
Maybe this was karma for what I've done.
And like they say, it bites back hard.
If I knew it would be you,

gods' gamble
angel Nov 2021
You blindly believe in Santa Claus
and were yearly surprised by the gifts
he brought for you until you found out
it was never him, to begin with.
So isn't that god too?
You blindly believe in him and
do so by believing in these little miracles-
by believing you got better through him?
No, honey- it wasn't God.
It was a chance.
It was a gamble.
He's Santa Claus; his miracles
are gambling chips.
Why believe in what you don't see?

Is someone there?
angel Nov 2021
I feel them over my shoulder as I type;
in the corner of my eye or nearby when
in bed at night; sometimes I see them
through a movement in light from my eye;
under the table when I write...sometimes
I can hear them when the wind is tuned just right.
But when I look over, I see no one;
I just feel the presence;
I feel the fear and the dread of someone
who has no form; no head; the unknown.

No Place Like Home
angel Mar 2021
I sat on the bus, knees pulled into me
One hand clutching the seatbelt,
the other a controller to shuffle my songs
I lean against the cushion of the seat
with eyes closed; gently being rocked
and forth from the road
I don't understand until tears begin to slip out
that no matter where I go,
I'll never have a place to call home

Msg 2128
angel Feb 2021
I know I'm not enough; I'll never be enough.

I know it's not enough; it'll never be enough.

I try to give you my everything, including all of me-
but you keep pushing me away;
and as you push me away- the realization sinks in:
You'll Never come to Love me, as I Have Loved You.

As I Still Do.

It's not enough for me to live within your memory;
It's not enough for me for you to live within mine.

I can't live within you.

I can't handle knowing you live only within' me.


Love me.
Use me.

As Jareth had said: "Love me, Fear me,
Do as I say, and I will be your slave."

The only thing that should bound us is our love;
so love me.

The only fear you should have is losing me;
only thing of you to fear is the loss of me.

The only command I will say is to keep it this way;
after that i's vice-versa, I shall do as you say.

Forever and yours,

I am your slave.

Bound by the shackles of desperation and validation,
I will continue trying to break free from these
only due to the fact of my deprivation of love and lack of it.

Paranoia Plague
angel Jan 2021
Paranoia runs through my veins everywhere I go.
I don't feel alone when I'm at home alone;
I feel watched and stalked as I roam the streets alone;
I constantly feel dread and think of the worst,
you can tell me your loyalty to me but I'll question your words.
You can reassure me and occupy me,
but I'll always come back to how I was-
plagued by the paranoia of the unknown.

Why! Why Me!
angel Jan 2021
It was so long ago, but as soon as the dreams
or flashbacks enter; it's her reality once again.
Dropping to the floor, she begins to cry silently
at first...until she begins to scream at the walls again.
Huddled against the bath floor, she no longer felt
the comfort or protection of the hot air nor the
warm water that beaded her body behind the curtain.
Crawling into the fetal position in her bed, she covers both
palms against her mouth as she cries and screams silently.
His hands are back under her waistband; caressing her skin
with his rough hands. She begins to shake as she feels his
breathing on her neck as if she was there in bed with him again.
The shower is no longer comforting but reminds her how
vulnerable she is. As she curses and pleas for whys and hows;
another flashback hits her. The pool is where he grabbed her,
touching her mound and even thrusting himself against her;
but she can't do anything; she's still. Thrashing in her bed,
she struggles to contain the sobs that emit as she sits up in her bed.
Next, she's in the classroom where who she thought was her friend
slipped a hand down her shorts in the darkroom, but she pushes him
back and tears slip out of her eyes as she moves away from him.
As she stands in her towel staring at her bloodshot eyes in the mirror,
she almost snarls at herself; "But you let it happen; it's your fault."
As if her reflection was another person, she breaks into fits of cries again,
"I didn't want it and they did an-"
She opens her eyes to wake up to her room; alone.
She didn't feel anything but disgust as she got up, heading
straight to the bathroom for another shower.
As she starts it and begins to strip, she stares at herself in the mirror,
frowning in disgust at her body that people seemed to want to take
advantage of; even when she wasn't of age. She was barely even a woman.
As she climbs into the shower, she sits in the floor with her face
in her hands with the question that she's been asking since she was barely eleven: Why? Why? Why?! Why?! Why! Why Me!
Night terrors and a small form of PTSD plagues her life of male hands that have grabbed her

Love is Blindness
angel Jan 2021
"You don't know, do you?" He seems to ask me.
Before I can even speak, he silences me with a scoff:
"You're the only light I've ever known to see in this world of darkness- and it's selfish that I want you to stay with me because as I waited for my angel to show up, here you are to be fitted with the Devil, himself."
I look up to him for the first time, but all he does is lift a finger to my lips.
"Shhhhh, Mi Amor, you deserve the best; not this. Why can't you see that?"
If you feel as if you love someone, or know you love someone, you usually ignore the faults; despite the fact that they are posted right in front of you like little signs. Your love blinds you so you do not see any of the imperfections and toxic habits they display; you only see the good, ignore or put up with the bad. [draft 11/30/20}

Pt.4 Him
angel Jan 2021
I had a dream I can no longer remember,
but I know it had something to do with you.
I muffled my cries at night before drifting to sleep.
Because of you.
I woke up in my hotel room with red eyes after calling out your name.
Because of you.
This is the second time this has happened.
Yet I always say-
"At least I got to see you today."
At least I got to see you today..hmph.

Death was jealous of me;
and why wouldn't he be?
I am life; before, current, and after.
He is Death; he may be before and after,
but is doomed to a life of limbo within past.
As he sits beside me, cradling my hand in his;
the conversation begins as set in stone; as old as time.
"They all want you," he tells me, "They all
want to live by your hand and never to die by mine."
As I turn to him, lifting a hand up to his skeletal face,
caressing where the skin had been long ago,
before telling him once again:
"They can't have me without you, which is why they
must thrive on the beautiful lie I give, which is life-"
"And accept the painful truth of that lie that I possess, which is death,"
he finishes for me. As his eyes soften to inhale my touch; as my mouth finds his skeletal one; the skin will then return to his figure for me to feel;
his hands return to caress and hold mine as I breathe into him temporay life.
As William Penn had said, "The jealous are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves." As well as to phrase Norman MacDonald, "Jealousy seldom punishes with the severity suffers;" to Death, my love, you've suffered many lifetimes that you will never be granted. I mourn you, Death, that you'll never find the peace or place that you establish to others as they pass; that you'll finish others' lives, but never your own. To Life: Take care and watch over him. To Death: Preserve yourself and watch over her.

Not after the first time.
I even found out about how
the addiction ran through my
blood from family.
I shook that out of my head-
anything to forget just for a while.
It stung for a second,
wiping at my nose.
She started giggling as she fell back.
She held my hand and told me,
"Enjoy the rollercoaster."
I sat down ready to hallucinate the colors
and funny sensations-
to find that euphoric state again.
but I forgot about the paranoia;
my heart beating fast;
my stomach pumped with anxiety;
hell, I even forgot about the voices...
I didn't care to remember until now.
I looked at her as her face seemed to blur,
"Enjoy the rollercoaster."
It seemed to echo until I couldn't seem
to remember no more.

what if you don't?
What if you say that
I am your past;

What if you laugh
and I am just a story

Mother, Daughter War
angel Apr 2020
I'm tired of fighting,
as if we are in a war.
As we take stabs at
one another,
our wounds
We are not rivals,
we are mother and daughter.
Although, after we fight,
you've always won.
Yet, every day,
we relentlessly keep changing
our wars.
As our battles stain the
hard-floor, I realize
we're sore.
Sore from the fighting.
Sore from the hurting.
And then I tear up at the end,
but only I don't say, sorry.
i love you.
or give any explanation for
my or her actions.
She won't accept my silence,
but I know what I say,
with tears in my eyes,
I say, 'okay.'
I don't realize I'm at fault
until I walk away.
As her face breaks into hurt,
and mine into pain.
I walk to my room,
lay down, and fade away.

I love you so much, mom,
but you inflict mental pain;
that I certainly can't explain.
So as I see you into battle,
with my gear in my head.
Just know mother,
As much as I fight.
As much as I resist.
I love you and will
always let you win;
I will never admit.

A mother protects a daughter in a clear, undesirable way. Only, they do not understand a daughter takes care of a mother with no recognition, with no sight, and is repeatedly called, "ungrateful," in spite.
