and i hope you look at the stars and smile
i hope you stop and kneel and smell the flowers
pray for a better world and mark your calendars
an appointment is necessary for yours and ours
but stop for a minute and look at the blue world
and if you look far you'll see mountains so pure
i see the world in your eyes
you have the universe in your soul
i hear all of god's cries
for lost souls like mine and yours
to weep for my life is the great sin
to share my secrets is the position i'm in
so i recite all my poems and underline
every underlying composition
of all my feelings and connotations
and forget my scars
i'm not long for this world
yet i still get scared of the forest untold
and undiscovered like me
the crevices of trees
and the graves of dead bees
and the things nature sees
but small compared to sea
i wanna live by the ocean
and build my own coffin
take my time like the coward i am
though i make such a fuss about living
cram my toes in the sand
and drown myself in reminiscing
god i know you aren't real
and i know life's a fluke
but it sure would be something if
life's all it took
to get to the end old and depressed
to realizzZzze that this isn't a test
that it's about existing in a world self-sustaining
to study it all and learn every lesson
and be like this planet
on which you were born
not like the people that are all fucking torn
they constructed their crosses and wielded their nails
to crucify their own and kill those that are different
see the world isn't round and it isn't flat
it's right in your skull don't let it get trapped

And here is the resurrection. That at death we all return to the earth. Our souls become the wind. Our eyes become the stars. Our hearts become seeds for new life through the flowers. Our minds intertwine and create another universe.
Full circle.

My eyes

are sinking back into

my skull.

They leave two gaunt

craters

in the skin beneath each lower

eyeflap,

each which now darkens and

dissociates itself

from

a healthy pigmentation—

much in the same

fashion

as that in which I

myself

have darkened

and dissociated

from reality

Regan Collins Mar 22

I don’t know what it is,
But my mind is flooded:
The waves splashing
On the inside of my skull.
I’m drowning in thoughts of you,
Daydreams of what we could be.
I hear my name on your lips;
You say, “Come with me.”
And I feel how I’d feel
If only I knew you,
If only you knew me.

Chloe Chapman Mar 17

I like the colour purple,
     as it blooms across my skin,
The delicate spread of lavender,
     dappled with yellow and green.

I like the smell of iron,
     of copper pennies and blood
As it oozes form a scab
     or drips from a fresh cut.

I like the feel of my ribs,
     the bones beneath my skin,
The curve of my skull under my cheek,
     Or the joints of every knuckle.

Wrote this on a whim..
(and yes Colour is spelt right, that's how we spell it in England.)

" The good deeds we do can help us on our path.  They fill the soul with hope and joy,  at times I look to that power.  But today I dive into a small part of my darkness. "

Sometimes you gotta go in a different direction.  All which lead to the same place.  Of course this little back road will lead through an area without street lights.  The only light I see out here is the silver pale moon light.  This is where I summon GlOW skull.  He is a small dark part of me.  Dark enough to dim the light I need to fight.  You see certain individuals are standing to close to the light.  Wanting it all for themselves.  In this case they are standing so close to the light that they do not realise how big the shadow they cast is behind them.  So I need a little bit of darkness and shade to dim these big lights.  Just for balance, no more, no less.

Call to the shadow and shade, remember darkness was there first before the light got there.  -G l O W

Walking in these poor streets.
Where you hear guns every half an hour, kids crying, skinny parents.
I remember when Raneem used to run around here, her smile was so delightful.
Now that you arent here anymore,
I will find hardness in forgetting you

is it time already
is it time for me to blow off the dusts
and
cut the long tresses off my skull
that's been braided by words written on your typer
ever since
I've had dreams of people falling
while I stood there,
feeling helpless
I know what it means
I can't help this stubborn part of me
and
black out the comma every time
my ink poetizes your name

-a.

an ivory orb of milky rot
i found and held
as my friend--
my own pubescent totem

i was held down by
something like shame
and though i am the same,
the world ever darkens
in the sharing of moldered dreams
and a burned-out visage,
flesh separates under broken teeth
to feed the pit

my wings in a dirt cocoon,
lost to bedlam and amore--
no,
i cannot fly
or dream of my own death,
but cut out my own skull
for another
while, in dreams,
i visit hells i have not earned
and for a token taken,
nightly burn

By Arcassin Burnham

will you dry my bones,
will you rip my heart,
will you leave me alone,
is this when we part
will you take my spirit in the middle of night,
while I'm begging to cry, while I'm going.....to die,

Dealt with quite a lot of bull in my recent years,
You gotta be a man , you gotta work just to face
Your fears,
Dying of thirst like the guy at liquor stores begging
For money,
Thinking it's a curse when things go bad in my past
Memory,

I'm falling
fast
needa
life,
soul searching
can't
find nothing
right

I've got dirt in my eyes,
And blood on my knees.

will you dry my bones,
will you rip my heart,
will you leave me alone,
is this when we part
will you take my spirit in the middle of night,
while I'm begging to cry, while I'm going.....to die.

Today I looked into the mirror
Saw a little glimmer
Of hope
Even though
I know
Right now it looks like I have none

I just had five teeth pulled
Out of my skull
I know I look real ugly
But I'm looking at the future

I will need to wear braces
I get them in two weeks
But at least nobody can tease me
For being so damn fugly!

They can't taunt my teeth
Because I'm finally getting them fixed
