If my breath is worth your word Then I would forfeit all to live your world Where the light and dark are nothing but shades of grey And your love would smother me drive me out, push me Heavily slowly relentlessly
A girl singing in a club, nothing stood out but the dark. She sang a line that made me smother, she summed up all of my days throughout sometimes wish I'd stayed insde my mother, never to come out and then the piano notes floted in the air falling softly like dust melting everything it touched with no care, my life was on the edge to combust.
It starts with a seed: small and dark It starts to grow: a stem and a thorn It grows some more: twisting inward on itself Now its a bush: one that smothers It has sharp thorns and soft, black leaves. they ***** out all of the light It tightens around something soft. you cant feel it but you sense it You keep watching the plant as it grows once it was a seed, now a still growing plant until one day... ...you cant... ...breathe...
We all know the feeling. When you can feel the words. When you can feel them begging to be pulled from your mind. You can feel them straining to be written. But when the pens starts to move The words jumble and tumble Overflowing all at once Not making an ounce of sense They beg to be pulled But when you open the door They only fall on top of one another And all they seem to do is smother
The night is old And my eyes are heavy Heavy, a puppy held too long. You’d think I’d sleep. But the door lies open Staring at me, The threshold slathered in anxious thoughts Responsibility, a feather, a mountain The reminder is onerous and incessant Inescapable, tied to the wall Must sleep. Please!
Anger take me somewhere new, Somewhere I've never been; It could be to apologize Or to lose another friend. 'Cause you sure as hell ain't one to me, You're nothing but a pain; Anger, hit the road, you ***- May we never meet again. For Anger makes a fool of me, Makes me see red in a whole new hue; Robs me of my logic-mind, Makes me say what isnt true. I can't always lock you up, And stuff you out of sight; But I can choose When it's time for you To be released into the fight. For you are not my master, And you are not my friend; You may burst into flames one day, But I'll just put you out again.
I wasn't any heavier than half an inch's weight when I decided Life was just a moment I could waste a metaphor that shouldn't sound like anything I knew but humans have a way to pace their feet around The Truth for even though our bodies keep a record of it all eternal minds can swallow things at flesh's beck and call if we so choose to bury our own past within ourselves we'll have to give account for every coin we try to sell a silver lining confidence may linger in the world but in the dark, upon a dream, you'll see your little girl
I'm the thief of your dreams; I've gone and turned them all black. Everything you wanted for me, everything you hoped I'd be I threw back. Now you worry and smother me with all of your good intentions, But I lie to you through my teeth-- even my "truths" are inventions.
