in back alley ways and missed phone calls i let the world know i couldn't stay i waved goodbye to the front door as i walked to the end of the world i gave my body permission to decay and gifted my soul to the north i took a bite out of the sea and rejoiced it overlayed the acrid taste the pills left in my mouth i layed down to take my bow and woke up in the same place and i don't know why i woke up.
This is about the first time I tried to **** myself
As if directed by dark unseen forces spreading from an acrid domain flames ignited consuming everything flames ignited consuming everything once arid forests and homes swiftly succumbed to the raging fires rising into black smoke spires!
Devouring all living matter in its wake nothing sacred with such heat those grasslands now totally destroyed nothing left but smoldering ashes in communities no matter their prestige as each became under siege!
Ferocious and hungry any daylight masked their lungs gasping to breath trapped as they perilously tried to escape the routes to safety fading facing ahead death anguish and disbelief victims united by loss and grief!

1. They tell blatant lies. 2. They deny they ever said anything, even if you have proof. 3. They use what is near and dear to you as ammunition. 4. They wear you down over time. 5. Their actions do not match their words. 6. They throw in positive reinforcement to confuse you. 7. They know confusion weakens people. 8. They project. 9. They try to align people against you. 10. They tell you or others that you are crazy. 11. They tell you everyone else is a liar.

winter walks with him death smiled at him the king of ruins masquerading like Satan he speaks acrid language intense and vile jolts wildness with each step runs on hatred boulevard he feeds on venom a cold blooded serpent heinous as hell a heart of stone
He smells of fireworks. Well, now that I think of it- not the explosions His scent is of that burn that lingers- I know, I know that it is acrid, That when he leaves I will taste it, while it burns my throat. But isn't it exciting anyway?
