Ophelia’s swinging herself across her lake
The salt of the water is hitting my face. Can she leave?
Can’t she go? I’m fed up with the artificial show.
Female insanity, that’s me.
If I die today I’ll make it pretty.
i wrote this whilst drunk so its literally the worst thing ive ever written, idk how to be more sophisticated tbh

Tucked in a closet,
yet the depths of Sahara
kept in a small room

the time that you told me to die
was painful that I didn't even try
slapping you

I don't know if you lied
but all I knew was it was possible
that you wished I did

I tried to make it up to you;
avoiding hurting you
with the fist,
and temper of mine

I just wished you noticed that I tried;

Yes, I've grown distant,
trying to find one's self;
I was occupied, sad, and alone.

Too busy to find friends,
that won't discard me when I needed someone

I guess that I pushed you away
so that you won't be like me.
An envious, gullible fool
as I did,
the more you become
a little more
like me.

We're the opposite of each other
but undeniably similar.
back and forth.

is after love
these days,
they want
to receive
loving words
each day
even I
want to be loved
I don't want
a partner

i base my worth on likes and simple words
i know that this kind of thinking doesn't work
and that will never do.

the silence of the midnight sea,
was like the echo of society,
is this what was it supposed to be?
a grey cloud overshadows me,
I am withering.
words are not simple,
that sometimes I just want to be a cloud.

too lonely,
too alone,

here I copy,
you're already gone.
Brumous Oct 2021
we follow with blindfolded eyes,
fearing our fears,

a breathless sigh.
Brumous Oct 2021
gone was you,
and gone was I

I search the wind, saying
"where am I?"
Brumous Oct 2021
I've grown so much,
yet I feel small.

even if I tried,
would they notice me
at all?
