You don't fight
fire with fire

that makes it burn brighter

You don't pour fuel
to the flame

for it to tame

Anger leads to anger
it never leads to good

if a match is lit
don't give the fire
firewood


Don't make it hotter

don't fight
fire with fire

use water.
Man Feb 4
in her clenched hand
she held a rose,
recently wilted

i saw its thorns
dug into her palm
like wire barbed


small and unassuming
gasping for breath
she had the heavy scent
of gasoline
each iris was a lit match
and she laid her gaze on me

let me be your fuel,
burn me down
and lament over the ashes

I see the pieces in you
That keep you
away

Reflecting off your silent speech
The color jade
In blue green

Glass stripping the innocence

I tried to protect
A mask
With a sharred imagination

Produces a Passion flower
flavor
dripping  
In my mouth
Taste buds gone raw

A wild sunspun refraction strips me down in light strips
Light strips
form
laser electric prisms
Turn me inside out
That’s when the light comes on


So Let me. Take them off already.
Where are you sun?
I want you to know me.

I wanted to know you so bad.
But the real me saved
Who you knew

Who you thought you knew when we first met
that night

Dark and still
Inside the insides of your filthy stark
Leather streaked
Unfiltered cuts
I was keyed in
My intuition knew

The front seat
Headlights falsified
F your own self and *******
Until you sink into sinner’s
Sleep
That’s a lot of hidden pain to carry
Inside a heart burning body
Unconscious to the crisp
I dealt with you and you never knew as much
You thought you had me manipulated or mistaken, so no amount of gaslighting or emotional brain washing, yes, that’s what we shall call it, could disable me from my own perseverance to evolve and make it out stronger and more invigorated to live every dream and vision more acutely then I ever had in my life. And I did. I am. Your false puppetry could not keep up or dissuade me from my purpose and my intuition to remake the evolution of my life. Cheers to being happier than ever imagined. Because I made the unhealthy a part of the journey to bring out what I needed to grow and love that much more compassionately at a time when I thought I knew what love was.
Love is loving yourself through it all and believing in the faith to transcend that wholly onto another; into your right one.
The best has come.
Resilience taught me that.
And that everyone must surely be my teacher.

I am working on me
I shall keep working on me
Working requires energy
The problem is who will provide fuel
Bhill Sep 2020
fires raged as the winds fueled their fervor
taking on anything in their path with incredible force
moving across the ground and leaping up to reach higher fuel
doing only what fires do...
moving with the wind and leaving a path of blackened surface
is this our new reality...?

before wanting there is learning
you must discover before you desire
are desires more significant
how do you gauge
is desire the fuel to all information
just asking for a friend...

Do you have the answer?

I’m always afraid of the worst
The fear just churns in my head
Fuelling more of my anxious thoughts
It’s an unfortunate cycle
That I’m desperately trying to break

So sensitive skinned
Passions keep me from world's lies
My heart unscripted
I made a promise to myself that on my 25th birthday, Ill be making changes to myself, slowly but surely. Ive often hated myself for being so 'sensitive', I thought if I killed that part of me, Ill be happy. Now Ill be kinder to myself and embrace it as an asset, not a flaw. I will finally be tackling some old fears and demons. Its my very passion, my own fire that keeps me warm from the chaos of the world around me and the relationships of wonderful friends and family that keep me sane and grounded.
I want to be as real as I can and present the best version of myself everytime too.
As I said, Im working on new collection which I hope will be posted soon. Still got alot to research, haha! But I will be going back to continuing some collections here!
Stay safe and well everyone!
Much love,
Lyn 💜

A dog, by your side!
Someone good to show off!
To please your parents
While I disappear into darkness

Nothing hurts! like her compliments
When I become what she wants
Give me death & despair
Instead of true love

For they are
Fuel to sad people & poets
I hate the fact that I loved her.
