The anger swells inside of me
Like a bomb ready to blow
But my air is gone
I can’t blow out the wick
And no ones around to listen
I guess they’re lucky
They won’t hear me screaming
Anna Lour' Apr 27
While the ocean unfolds
calm as still waters
I’m just another lost soul
floating helplessly with no colors

I’ll go where the tide told me to
because there’s no hope left in me
And everything looked so pointless
so why bother to fight for them

I’ve been screaming, yearning, longing for answers,
for a glimmer of hope
But every time I try harder,
the world brings me down
And here I am

But as the night went by,
and the stars fell down
The sun emerged,
and the warmth grew closer
The morning breeze greets me,
welcoming for a new start
Maybe I don’t have all the answers now
but that doesn’t mean I should settle down
And I may be floating
but i’m discovering the whole sea

shirtless screaming through
the heartland and I used
to smoke cigarettes
too.

she never wanted
to stay: the youth
she had
left demanded it.
now, I'll wager
she's somewhere
in an apartment with
some dandy that
wears sweater vests
to Thanksgiving dinner.

maybe she thinks
about me and my little
twisted heart every
now and again:
like when she's away
from the sweater vest
on the toilet
behind a locked door,
"be right out, babe!"
or toting groceries
through a parking lot
to her car,
or signaling a
left turn before
changing her mind
and deciding to
go straight instead.

and
maybe I need to
stop thinking
about her
especially after
three years
incommunicado

but what can I say?
I've never slept on
a bed of nails
I couldn't
dream on.

I heard you
screaming without any words

I felt you
thinking you were walking all alone

I tasted
your chance given to me to come into your life

I looked at us
while we were falling in love

all my parents care about is my grades
i spent 13+ hours today working on my final project
so i am able to get a good grade in my class
and they get home and start screaming at me
for being on the computer to do my project
and they've been yelling at me for the past 5 hours
and i've been crying for the past 5 hours
my eyes are swollen
my tears are frozen to my face because I decided to get out of the house
and go for a walk
i was outside in the dark in under 32 degrees (F) crying for an hour
some kid was outside in his driveway when i was walking
he asked if i was okay
i said yeah and kept walking
isn't it funny how i hide myself from people who don't even know me

i was getting better too... and they just shot me down
i'm sorry...

this is me
screaming into
the void
a whisper
i am deserving and worthy of love

this is me
constructing pieces
of boundaries
i can't put up yet

this is me
speaking words
that are not lies

this is me
preparing for the worst

this is self-preservation
im tired of biting my tongue
i can't wait to leave this town

Do you know what it's like
Not knowing what's fake
And what's real
Sitting all alone in a dark room
Shaking
Having creatures tear open your skin
Yet not having a mark on you
Hearing voices screaming
Pounding on the walls
Yet being in complete and utter silence
No you don't
So shut the **** up
Caitlin Faykus Oct 2020
I have this darkness
Creeping up inside of me
One day it will reach my neck
Stopping the air flow
Silencing my screams
And I'll fall to the floor
Choking, gasping for air
But no one will hear
