My bootstraps broke.

I wish I could walk

out of my life the way others

have walked out of it.

ghosts are scary because they are remnants of the past you either want to forget or are dying to get back.

I'm choking on the

blood, sweat, and tears I've wasted

drifting through this life.

Incognito

Cloaked in the privacy

Of darkness

Is where I feel free

Protected from the

Judging eyes of others;

Comforted by the shadows

Because I'm just a shadow

Of who I used to be

And who I aspired to become.

vulnerable

He asked me to stay

for just one drink.

I smiled

as he took my hand.

Little did he know,

I was willing to stay

'til last call.

Right now, I want to

be nowhere. I'm hiding in

my nonexistence.

nighttime.

My tears taste like a

Mix of Hennessy and coke

Soaking my pillow.

trying to find a proper title pisses me off sometimes.

Consistently inconsistent

and in a constant state of

discomfort

the blades of change

carve out new routines

within the status quo

selfishly wishing to disconnect

but afraid of what it feels like

to be unloved

Knowing others are the only reason

one would bother to trudge along

the mundane

day to day

depressing

hopeless

fuckin pointless

tasks we assign ourselves

to feel we do something of value.

Roles like

mother, friend. brother,

caretaker, lover, employee,

confidante, rock--

I never realized I had been

fulfilling the role of

token friend who

is an emotional mess.

You're supposed to surround yourself

with positivity

but even positivity can only take so much

of someone who is down in the dumps

"I would rather that you remember me as..." Where will this fragment of a sentence take you? To the past? Into a dream scenario? Righting a wrong? Tell me that story. Any genre is welcome. Please tag me with the finished product. #rememberme
Written by Miggie

flawed remembrances

Resting in Peace

or resting in paradise

usually lies

an "amazing" person,

one loved by everybody,

flaws forgotten.

Made up to look alive

even if they had been

bludgeoned in the head.

A slate wiped clean by the guilt

of speaking ill of the dead.

I'd rather

you remember me

as a ball of anxiety

and crying tears of black widows

who tried to exact revenge on those

who dared mess with my soul

I wasn't always brave

and didn't always make

the right decisions.

Remember

that I was broken

but I used my shards

to fight off my demons

and reconstruct protective walls

to keep myself together.

because my life belongs to me

not the things that have

happened to me.

Know that I hated

Know that I loved

And that I lived the best life

that I could.

Reasonable dreams

just type.

just write.

a means to an end

shouldn't always feel

so mean

detach yourself

don't worry about

the critiques.

a parent's wish

is noble

but is not

a transcript.

A need for control

and a God complex

have made you feel

you're forever in debt.

manipulations and smoke screens

have hidden the alternative

lives you could have

CHOSEN

to live.

our final meeting.

Embarrassed that she dragged me here again

Vindictive because I have won our battles

multiple times in the past,

she manifests in different forms

gaslights me

confuses me

manipulates her way into my bloodstream.

She has me convinced that looking at her

is looking at a reflection of myself.

I am not my pain, I scream at her.

Cycles of hope and happiness

punctuated by the lowest of lows

I imagine myself catching her game early

grabbing a fistful of her luscious hair

and smashing her beautiful face

into the concrete ground

her diseased brain parts splattering

a piece hits me in my face, and I taste

the salt of her betrayal.

crimson blood running down the sidewalk

looking to infect the next one;

stomping my heal into her temple

not bothering to listen for her

last breath,

just enraptured at the cracking

of her skull on the pavement

knowing that her death

has freed me from my pain.
