oh where did I leave you? Like mislaid socks, I wear mismatched thoughts nicely fitting but not right.
We walk around expectations
Dressed in shades of sadness colored blue Smiles that keep us glued together Not matching the rest of our hue Our eyes betray silent agony The stormy secrets hidden well Wash me clean or strip me bare From this temporary hell Chase happiness while you can Do not think it can always wait The day you get around to it Could be one day too late
We walk around with sadness and smiles that do not match our eyes
A creature not of here or there
With parts that do not fit Neither fish nor fowl, horse or bear A bashed together kit Too many heads, some with horns Body furred and scaled Eagles wings and spines like thorns And as a peacock tailed Some aspects might bring a smile While others will repel One small detail may beguile Yet another breaks the spell Each pack or flock it tries to join Though they seemed akin And in some facet quite adroit Another portion can’t fit in Every time it tries as best it may To hide an offending section Knowing that if seen in light of day The result will be rejection So the beast remains an alien Cloaks what's best concealed Strives to imitate the chameleon That no misshape be revealed All creatures hunger for a home Chimera hungers too But it wanders doomed to roam A haven to pursue
All of us are Chimera to a degree. But some more than others.

I believed you
When you said that It's you and me against the world I was blinded by the thought Of you and me fighting them Side by side, with our hands intertwined And our hearts as one I tore down my walls And built my dreams around you Now I'm stuck in this nightmare Breathing only anger And self loathing Delusional of the primer - That this can be salvaged You and I We are too far gone This, The us We have and always been Improbably fated
So I'm stuck in this dysfunctional relationship. I don't even know why I'm staying. I need to get out of this mess soon, this is slowly wasting me away.
Your eyes, your face, your
fingertips. They were all my favourites. Your lies, your gaze, your perfect lips. I love thee too. And those words, you would mumble in my ears. They make me shiver with delight. I like to trace along the raised scars on your back. Where your wings were brutally ripped. They felt rough and ugly. But no you're not. Was it painful? Was it not? When you fell from above In that one place called paradise. Because I know it does. When I did fall, No not from Heaven love it's Inferno and Hell.
