no no no no

stop it!
dad stop, please
momma please quit
please don't hurt me!
friend please don't be angry with me
lover please don't leave me
please you can't
you can't die pretty boy!
brother, sister please i need help
why are you walking away from me
what is it that i have done that displeased you
can you please lie and say it’s okay, friend?
can you fake one last kiss, lover? or ex-lover now i suppose
even though you lost grasp of me no
you still cant die
dearest sibling, where have you gone
please everyone can you be on my side for once
or at least pretend to be
i did not realize how weird it is to never use the name of someone when it needs to be their name and not just something to reference them
Get a job,
a husband or wife.
Make yourself comfortable
in your own life.
So they tell me
or would have told me
if they were still alive.
But they are dying slowly
by the magic pills.
They are no longer there
to protect and care.
I no longer have devils
that whisper and scream.
They can do both
but now they are doing non.
And I can see myself having fun,
not caring or staring
into nothingness.
Yet it leaves me in mourning
to know they are about to die.
Maybe if I hold on a little longer
I won't be lonely and then find myself
a job, husband or wife.
Dark eyes, like a river of black and the smallest white reflections, cannot be seen
Why do I find myself there, in your cold eyes, where it's barren and I find myself lost in between
All those bright colors you're missing, I feel bad that you cannot see anything besides black and white
I'm sure that someone told you that seeing those two colors only is alright

Even in your dark eyes, I'm sure I can find a brighter color, I swear
I love to get lost in those fragile doe eyes, but it's more than just cold there
Your dark eyes scream for more than just help, they scream save me
Each time I try to though, I drift farther and farther out to sea
i feel like i have to hide my sadness away from you
like you won't love the raging storm inside of me
and i want to scream at the top of my lungs
but when i open my mouth, nothing comes out
i'm drowning, but only sometimes
sometimes i feel okay and i'm able to breathe
but other times i just feel like an anchor drifting down into the sea
too heavy to bring itself back up
too burdened to care
it doesn't matter if i'm drowning or above water
there's just no reason for this sadness to be inside me
i'm used to the waves of emotions crashing against the rocky cliff
but there's no storm this time
there's no thunder
there's no lightning
but maybe my heart still has a couple leaks
maybe the water is still rushing into it
maybe i don't have all the things i need to fix it
maybe i'm still broken in places no one can reach
i don't want to be broken anymore
i don't want to be full of debris from the storm
i don't want this
and i don't have a reason for why i'm this way
sometimes the waves just wash over me
until i can no longer breathe

Baby I miss you
Can't you tell?

You still text me
As if we've been friends in secret love

I want to scream at the top of my lungs
I miss you
I want you
Please come back

You won't
You won't come back

You'll always be a figment of my imagination
Taunting me

Maybe secretly wanting me
I really ******* miss you.

Bound by chains
You scream for release
But the one who holds the key
Is gone
Who can set you free?
dear demons, i am loved
despite the words you scream at me
"you're unlovable"
no i'm not

I dreamt of nuclear bombs
yesterday
Pulled the blinds
Showered
And wondered if,
My world was going to end.

Thought about the dream book
I bought my ex
And if it had a section for
Nuclear Warfare.
Somebody mentioned
Throughout the day
That I probably felt like
I was losing everybody.
Which isn't true in the slightest.
Because everybody
Was already lost.

What bothers me the most,
Is, when it flashed
And I screamed
Everyone stood around me
Commencing with their
Mundane motions.
And I watched their bodies
Disintegrate
From skin, to muscle to bone
And finally down to nothing
But ashes.
And I observed,
Solid and sentient
The vast nothingness of
destruction.
I stood, and watched, and
screamed.

Until I woke up,
Pulled the blinds
Showered
And knew,
my world was at an end*.
After putting an asterisk at the beginning and end of each line, I'm still not italicized.
I'm leaving it! I like it.

The first time I left New York
The Architecture chased me....
Screamed in stone:
“Don’t go!”
