A stench so foul
Haunts these grounds
Follow your nose
Silence is the only sound

Feeding Time

A predator takes pride
In eviscerating its prey
Draining away its life
As it slowly plays

Dried Up

Drowning in the blood
Siphoned from my wrists
Dried to the bone
To never be missed

On my lips

Internal Inferno
Shannon Jeffery Feb 2015
My demons
Ignite my sight
Inviting all
Which is frightening

Pulsating through your veins
Sending me insane
A scent
For which I am bent

I yearn
for your blood
to burn

An irrelevant concept of measurement
On personal scales
Feb 2015 · 323
Shannon Jeffery Feb 2015
Stuck down a hole
Wanting out of hell
Life throws a rope
To escape where you dwell

You take this chance
But you don't realize
Lost in a trance
Life's just full of lies

Climbing high
Only to see below
The rope you've climbed
Burning slow

You look above
To see how far you've come
The rope bearing thin
It's all ready to come undone

Life lit the end
And scarred the top
It'll laugh at you
Never to stop

One last thing
Life did say
Thanks for the fun
Let's play another day

Peace? (10w)

Hiding away
In cage
Scared to stray
Upon lifes stage

Shannon Jeffery Feb 2015
Your eyes glow like the golden sun
Peering deep within my soul
Your voice is as whimsical
As an angels harps hum

A touch of pure elegance
Sending rhythm to my heart
Your movement flows like gracious art
An angel sent from the heavens

For dreaming
Can't reach

Come stand with me
Let your mind wander, let it be free
For just one moment, look at your life and realise that you own it.
Open your eyes, no door is closed.
Only your mind can decline the choices you have inside
I can tell you, you perceive your world
In one of two ways
Number one
You're in a room with only one way, do you go through the single door or do you just stay.
Number two
Your room has two doors, but which do you choose. You want to be careful so that you don't lose

Your eyes maybe open, but your mind is sown shut, you feel your stuck in a rut but don't worry your story still ain't woven until you have written and started living.
Picture it like this, the room your in has fifty no make that a hundred doors.
Now through each door, another room exactly the same
No door is closed, never a single choice, now I propose you listen to that little voice that hides in your mind, just take your time, and you'll be just fine.

Now I ain't saying your life will be perfect
It'll probably be far from it, but that's the best part, don't be afraid of what can be made, let your life start.
Never one choice

Planes of Conscious
Shannon Jeffery Feb 2015
As I drift between reality
And the realm of dreams
The world tops its axis
Or so it may seem

Rifts of the universe
Open like mouths
Dimensions unfold
While our heads are stuck in clouds

On the cusp of consciousness
Reality turns to dust
My soul splits from body
Bursting from crust

Traveling ethereal planes
The universe unfolds
Floating through space
Discovering stories untold
I don't know, I really don't Haha . Very tired but wanted to write :P

My Pearl
Shannon Jeffery Feb 2015
You say that you're fine
But I'll hold tight until the end of time
As the diamonds streak
Down your crimson cheeks
I'll catch every tear
Cause Daddy is here
I dunno didn't end up writing the way I expected, the reasoning behind title is....catching salty tears and holding tight like a clam holding sand and salty water inside.

I am the god
Who brings the sun to shine
With my silver bow and lyre
I shoot muse across the sky

I am the ink
That caresses your page
The rhythmic verses
Dancing across life's stage
I can bring you great health
But beware I can bring you the plague

Listen to life's harmony
And poetic flow
Syncing with my muse
I'll give you a show

This is my day but it's time for me to go
I'll shoot to the sky with my trusty bow
Upon you head my symphonies will snow
But I'll be back for sure with muse for tomorrow
For my name is Apollo
A little challenge am doing with some friends :)
Dunno if I should keep the Title just as the name or try and figure something creative out, just can't think of anything at this moment

Where will my heart lay
Upon the love day
It'll be all locked away
Until the days
Pass to May
For the month of April they say
You're just a fool, hey

In My Mind?
Shannon Jeffery Feb 2015
They ask me to let them in
To see what is going on in my mind
But all I can do I stare
And ask myself
That exact same question

*What is going on in my mind?

Strange Little Boy
Shannon Jeffery Feb 2015
I met a little boy
Who seemed a little strange
He was sitting in a corner
Just drawing away
He took a look at me
And laughed
"What a sight to see"

I asked him what's so funny
He looked at me again
And had one more laugh
That's when he said

I already know you
You're in my book
And all you can do
Is take a little look

I was ready for a laugh
Oh but a laugh was not in sight
I checked over it once, I checked over it twice
Oh no no, this cannot be right

I spin around, my world has changed
An echo screams "You're cursed, You're cursed"
Freaked out I run for the nearest cover, the echo again
"Too late, too late, this floor your blood shall stain"

I have nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Stuck in his book
Just waiting to die
Well something to end my block Hehe

I may write this as a series, I don't know yet depends if I can get the second one started right :)

Crimson tears fall with each stroke
Searching for freedom

You chew me up
And spit me out
I'll come back with
A different flavor

Sometimes poetry unravels
From my mind
Like your glowing eyes
Radiating through my heart

But sometimes it hides away
In the eerie darkness
Like you encasing your heart
In the depths of sorrows

Summer Sunset
Shannon Jeffery Jan 2015
As I float across the cosmos
Pleasantly with ease
Upon my face with a gentle kiss
From a summers breeze

Laying on the warm sand
In which gently I settle my feet
As waves wash over me
Where land and water meet

A vibrant paradise
Of silent bliss
A moment I
Would never miss

Haiku #2
Shannon Jeffery Jan 2015
Humans are fragile
Believing they cannot break
Love says otherwise
My 2nd try at a haiku
Jan 2015 · 577
Shannon Jeffery Jan 2015
Today I am done
I'm done with it all
World you have won
I'll curl into a ball

You've broken my will
Poisoned my soul
My mind is collapsing
But I guess it's not surprising

You reach out with talons
And rip out my heart
My blood you drain in gallons
It's a sick, sadistic art

If there is a hell
This is where it's at
Life is but a mere cell
We are just rats

I could go on forever
About the pain that you cause
But in the end, you'll just sever
More hearts with your claws

My light is in darkness
In escape from dismay
All I request
End me this day
I am over it all, the irony though I write a poem about my unbreakable will, well **** it, it's broken.

Bullied/Depression (20w)
Shannon Jeffery Jan 2015
Tears fall
As your words
Pierce my soul

Like the

As the razor
Slides across my wrists
