Glowing silver orb
Pale rays caressing the waves
Soothing lonely souls

Selenophile: a person who loves the moon
Life is akin to a symphony.
Even though everything is temporary,
And our existence is
But a few notes,
Each and every one of us
To its masterpiece.

Burning inferno
Swirling vortex of fury
Mesmerizing blaze

you set my heart on fire
Late night texts
Sleepy eyes
Small smiles

Stolen moments
Held inside
Beating heart


Left alone
Tear filled eyes
Chapped lips
Scarred thighs

Empty promises
Cast aside
Broken heart

there's a reason why its called a crush
The sea was forbidden, as was the mist
Residing in the dark were singing deaths
Humanity is an illusion you'll find you'll miss
The creatures in the abyss were never the threats
No, that was the blade pressed to your wrist
Blackness oozing from your chest
Life blood dripping from your fist
At night the pain comes with no bequest
My misery bountiful in your midst
Drowning in tears that I detest
These tangled thoughts I must untwist

its been rough lately
Bleak. Barren. Broken.
Blackness blotting out the blood
Basking in blazes

First attempt at a haiku :)
Jessica LeVario Dec 2018
I am ****
And no one can convince me that
I am beautiful
At the end of the day
I hate myself in every way
I'm not going to lie to myself by saying
I am good enough
I am worthless
Don't try to convince me that
There is beauty inside of me
Because no matter what
I am not good enough to be loved
Don't tell me that
I am perfect
When I look in the mirror I know
I am ****
And nothing you say will make me believe
I am beautiful
