I

my friend
how has fear consumed my lungs
how i dare not open mouth
for i choke years worth of screams
how a body
became so moldable
so willing to feel hands
it just stopped
being
i was created on saturn's ring
my body constricted
my mind an obsession
breathing
living
meat
quickly rising
quickly falling

II

friend dare i say i miss you quite a bit
even though you called me a freak quite a lot
words that are like fists
become set in stone
your mind a raging ocean
and me a human
barely with my head above it.

i was once travelling
and on the bus a man was sleeping
and i started looking at man
and oh friend i was fascinated
how when he woke up
he rubbed his eyes
he drank some water
and i started crying
because how human of him
to be thirsty
and to rub the sleep of
and to sleep
i envied him
i wish i could sleep
for quite a while
maybe even forever
maybe... maybe i shoul..
wait where is it
i can't find my body
maybe i left it on that bus
or maybe it's in his house
or maybe it's still in school
maybe even with you friend
i shouldn't be so calm
i shouldn't panic
i hear your smile
''you truly don't care about anything''
where is my body
whereismybodywhereismybodywhereismybodywhereismybody
i hear your smile
''that's what happens when you design things too much''
friend please
stop
help me find it
find me

IV

i saw you in a dream
and you laughed like you were manic
and i naturally i laughed along
i noticed
you had fists for hands
knuckles white squeezing
i couldn't breathe suddenly
laughing turned to sobbing
your hands were red
blood so much blood
covering you
a hole in my shirt
my favorite shirt
heart was gone
you were gone too
screaming didn't help
waking up is not an option
i mean my heart i have to
i need to find it
what are they gonna say when they see the hole
so i run and i run and i see you
in different cheekbones
or brows
mostly eyes and noses
but it is never you
kidnappers are hard to find after the initial hours
and how long was it since i last felt a heartbeat
hours?
has it been months?
or even..years
i'm losing hope
there are still parts to be found
my body
my sick breathing clay
my body
i think it's finally time to

WAKE UP

V

let me look for you one last time.
if someone actually reads this whole thing i love you
Get out
Go away,
I've been working hard
For too many days.

Can't think
Won't sleep,
Not with you there
Herding all my sheep.

Get out
Go away,
My head's so full
And heavy with clay.

Can't think
Won't sleep,
Afraid of monsters
That are sure to creep.

Get out
Go away,
I never said
That you could stay.

Can't think
Won't sleep,
Could end it all
With just... one... leap...

I'm rarely dreaming.
Waking from a rarely dreaming,
I'm always screaming.
Only in my head, without a single sound,
But it's still far too loud.


Realities are deceiving.
I'm never sure of when I'm dreaming;
I'm always waiting for awaking.
The thoughts and doubts form a crowd;
I cannot look around.


I'm barely sleeping.
I'm afraid I will wake up in the evening,
And it's still the evening.
Being alone, in the deep night drowned,
Dreams or deeds astound.


It's a funny feeling.
The morning should be relieving,
Even if it's without meaning.
At least, I could be sure of the ground,
Not just being without a bound.


Am I dreaming?
I have no landmarks steering;
I might be sleeping.
Dream in a dream in a dream sowed;
In a mind that may be underground.

I saw a dream
My teeth fell
A lot of blood in between
That's how unlucky I am
emotional pain,
even in my dreams

Written on September 26, 2019
Can't sleep
Startled awake
Every turn
I see your face

Her innocence
You try to take
With no exit
Continue the chase

Always running
My hips, they ache
Strength to continue
I must find and embrace

Create an out
These walls I'll break
Try to heal
Memories that won't erase

Trying to take care,
Do the next right thing.
Save myself,
Just a human being.

Want to run and hide,
From thoughts in my head.
Supposed to be doing better,
Stuck here instead.

Told they will always be,
Like unwanted memories.
Sto fighting, learn to deal
With monsters and enemies.

Just want, to go home
Where I'm comfortable.
Need to stay, safe here
Instead I'm irritable.

The hands of the clock slowly crawl
You pound away at your work reports
You look up at the blank wall
Faces form of all sorts
You blink it away, you are tired
You stand up, you must move
The door creaks open behind you
A being sneaks and slides in
Terror manifests from the beast
It penetrates your very soul
And upon your heart it feasts
Move!
Your feet our pinned with fear
As the creature draws near
It hisses and screams
A being from your worst dreams
You yell aloud, but produce no sound
Your heart runs as you stand still
The monster drags itself forward
A disgusting thing, its distorted
Move!
The hands of the beast slowly crawl
Up you paralyzed legs
You stare into its eyes
You only see the darkness of your own mind
You pound away at the beast
But your arms are bound
Its face takes the form of a hound
Its tongue reaches out
And plucks out your eyes
Move!
You snap awake in your own bed
To the kisses of your good dog

Yet
I was lost in the darkness,
Thrashing about.
Fading from this world,
My mind losing its grip.
The moment, a mystery;
A nightmare I could live without.

Then, with the morning,
The light reappeared
Pushing the shadows down below.
I opened my eyes,
Still breathing.
Air in my lungs,
My heart still beating.
For the life of me,
I still can't reason why.

Maybe
I never woke up.
Maybe
I took the fall.
Maybe
I'm stuck in between.

Is this my prison?
Did I get what I deserve?
****** for my fall from grace?
Another lost soul to burn?

Questions of a broken heart
I ask out of pain
Knowing the answers
Are not so hopeless.
And yet I wonder
In vain.

She claims it’s love.
Locking me inside an empty home,
Twisting my dreams into nightmares,
Stealing my tears,
Wasting my time.
It’s all love.
I don’t believe it.
I never did.
