By any chance, can you see me?
I can see you clearly, simple and free.
If I didn't see you, I would lose my mind.
Walk around looking like I was half blind.
So yes, I see you clearly, and I love what you do.
If it wasn't for you covering my eyes, believe me I wouldn't have a clue.
And that‘s the Danger
of a soldier of the Dirt
Dead-set to follow
Despite the master.
with the Owner’s presence
Overflowing like a
cup in an Ocean
a reward for Obedience
of the Outcast
taken with Open arms.
a Golden heart
whose Gates open
to the Glorious
to the Gaudy
whether Gallant or Gross-
Their hearts do not care
For that’s a Dog.
I struggle to overcome
They make me who I am
I am not me
Housework (who likes that?)
Trauma? More of if than anyone should have to survive.
Money... not worth it
I call myself efficiently lazy.
I call myself a survivor
Without my problems I am not me
So I cannot imagine a life without them.
Thorns are my rainbow
Empty would be my life
without the challenges
of daily problems
I am looked at and observed,
In a tiny cage,
I am perched upon a,
My wings clipped so I can't,
And fall every time.
The things that should take me away
Are not able to.
So I stay perched upon a,
Enthusiasm and Power
Enthusiasm and power
That is the symbol of the cardinal
But not at this hour.
At this hour let it be,
The Cardinal is a messenger from heaven I have seen
Then I will know where I will be.
When the angel I miss most comes to me
The Cardinal had come when I was stuck
And it has given me a bit of luck
As the world changes and minutes turn to hours,
The Cardinal will grant me enthusiasm and power
We all try to cope
Some "healthier" than others
But in the end, we are all just trying to survive
Some smoke, drink, cut themselves, and stay in toxic relationships they know they can't fix
Some starve while others gorge
We are all just trying to survive as long as possible
Because in the end, it's meaningless
We all die no matter how hard we fight to survive
This is one reality of our collective mortality
You just have to sit and press buttons to make changes on things that are on a screen.
How It Felt To Fly
I'm sorry that I upset you
I promise I didn't mean to
I just feel good and I don't want that to go
When the mania comes it feels like flying
My feet don’t touch the ground as my thoughts race fast as I’m out the door
Looking at the beautiful world there is to explore but it will all come crashing down
The depression hits and the tears flow like pouring rain from the dark clouds that are my sunken eyes as I sit and try to remember how it felt to fly.
Purified (trigger warning, hints at abuse)
My thoughts run rampant like an overheated engine. The steady stream of water cleanses the dirt from my skin and my soul. I step out further, feeling anew, my troubles swirling down the sewage drain.
I've always thought a heavy downpour was Earth's attempt to rid itself of evil.
However, the rain could never manage to wash away the purple, there wasn't time. It would soon be replaced by a shade deeper than the first.
I've always despised purple, so today, I exchanged it for my favorite, red.
The crimson that stains my hands, is becoming, but its origin mars its beauty.
I stand in the delicious rain, drenching my body, purifying my spirit, my sin slowly dripping off my fingers.
I smile at the piercing sound of the wailing siren, a warning of my impending imprisonment.
I just bought myself my freedom. All else is a small price I'd pay again and again. Gladly.
My name is Alex, and I love to write.
But lately, it's all been boring.
Should I switch the scene from day to night?
Change the windows or the flooring?
Perhaps I need some sudden deaths,
Yes, that will do the trick!
When characters take their last breaths,
The reader is shocked real quick.
Katie and Sarah should be in a car crash.
Matthew will drown in a swim.
Pierre's set on fire and burned straight to ash,
No firefighter could save him.
Melissa should fall off a three-story roof,
With Simon caught below it.
This recipe is completely foolproof,
I'll get awards before I know it!
Autobiographies aren't very frequent,
But I'll get some money for the time I've spent.
