The Feast
Larissa Frost Jan 12
The siren saved me
With her fragrant tune
On the water
At half past noon
He couldn’t resist
And she pulled him
To have him join her
As her daily feast
At half past noon.

I didn’t want
To say goodbye
I thought we’d travel
The earth
You and I
But you no longer
Visit me
In my dreams
The silence in my
Head is

Farewell to Fruitcake
Larissa Frost Dec 2020
I never liked
Just like the way
I never liked
The way you treated
Me like trash.
So I showed you
The way out
And I survived
Ironic though
people still
eat fruitcake.

I lost my parasol
In my former life
Last time I tried
To be proper
I picked up a bottle
Of liquor instead
And smoked your
Mother’s cigarettes.
I inhaled all my yesterday’s
Of trying to measure
I never once stopped
To search for
My parasol.

Candy Cane Curse
Larissa Frost Dec 2020
Bring out the sage
Pour on the bleach
I’m cleansing my soul
And cleaning my feet
Brushing my tongue
To rid the taste
Of your lies
Stuffing pockets
With the sound
of my cries
Rearrange my life
Clean out my purse
All because of
Your candy cane

What Ails the Angels
Larissa Frost Dec 2020
I don’t know
What ails the angels
Maybe they are tired
Of trying to guard me
And save me
From my demons
I picture them exhausted,
On a street curb
Smoking a Marlboro
Begging for rest.
Maybe that’s what ails
The angels.

They Are Always Watching
Larissa Frost Dec 2020
They are always
Society’s police
Setting norms
No one can reach
But spend a lifetime
Trying to
Conform to.
They are always
watching and
No one stops to consider
If in fact, they
Are just returning
The glance.

Locked Away
Larissa Frost Nov 2020
They locked me away
Cause I was crazy
Said I took too many pills.
Somedays I just screamed
And cried
And forgot pay all
The bills
I lost myself trying
To survive on my own
And deal with the
Chatter in my brain
All I could remember
Were the days I tried to dull
The pain.
Angry, shattered and
All alone
I cried on the floor out loud
The day they set me free
was the day
I swore I’d make them proud.

In the woods
You took it from me
I’m quite sure
I took it from
With a 10 cent
A lifetime perception
Of what they told
Me was the greatest
Was reduced to

Still smolder
In the ashes of

There’s this story
In my head
Where I lock my heart up
And you try every key
And can’t get in despite
How hard you try
To let me know
We are meant to be together.
That story is just sweeter
Than not loving me

Soul Cries
Larissa Frost Nov 2020
Our souls crossed
And told the lies
We’d be together
But then the cries
Wailed from hearts
Breaking in denial
Who thought
They’d withstand the
Trial of
Turns out souls don’t wait
They dissipate
And leave the wreckage

Today the words
Wouldn’t come out
I swear I just spoke
I’m exhausted and can
No longer adult
Someone just bring out
The toys.

The Burning
Larissa Frost Nov 2020
I wished for
To rest my soul
Thoughts of you
Burned a hole
In the center of
My passion
And they danced around
When will you
Love me.

My Mask
Larissa Frost Nov 2020
I hid
So I could go out
I wore the mask
Of self doubt
From being broken
Too many times
I hid my face
To pretend I was

Ten thousand
Tabs of nothing
Opened in my brain
While I’m trying my hardest to
Stay sane
The walls vibrate around
They mock me with their shake
Ten thousand tabs of
My nerves about to break
It takes me down every
So often
It corrupts each thing I touch
Ten thousand tabs of nothing
I wish I didn’t mind so much.

Set the boundaries
Ease the pain
Life will go
Much better they say
Easier said than
Put into place
Cause when I did
His hands rose to
My face.


“They” have never lived
        with a narcissist.

Painful Melody
Larissa Frost Nov 2020
Despite my desire
To not think about
The caged bird
Inside me
Still sings

I have the
Uncanny ability
To manufacture misery
In my head
Like it’s my job.
The words dance like

Until I am forced
To release their
Between my wet,

Wake me up
When the sky
Is blue again
And the leaves
Are crisp
With a chill in
The air
Wake me up
When it doesn’t
Hurt so much to love
Someone that can’t
Love you back
Wake me up
When the world
Is less confusing
And I can finally breathe.

My Space
Larissa Frost Nov 2020
When you come
Into my space
It makes me want to hide
And take my bones
And memories
And things I never
Speak of
And climb inside
A closet that leads to Narnia
Or somewhere else
Than here
Cause when you come
into my space
So does every single

    So stay away.

I’m tired to death
Of time after time
Uttering the words
I’m fine, I’m fine
With a mask on my face
I pretend and cry
I tell them
I’m fine
Though I don’t care
To try.
When inside my heart
Is broken
From all the words
That were never spoken.
I’m fine.

The Dance
Larissa Frost Nov 2020
I long for you
To touch me
And set my skin on fire
Inhale my soul
And spread my
With your desire
Take your lips
And part my sins
And dance around
The flames
That have waited
Patiently forever
To be screaming
Out your name.

You lured me in
With your compliments
And trapped me with
your lies
I could never please you
No matter how I tried
The day we tied
The knot to hell
I saw the evil twist
And some years later
I ran
To escape
