A slip of the tongue,
A stab of the knife,
Slews of carcasses hung,
Like marionettes devoid of life.
Are we all simply puppets of another,
Made only to do as others approve?
Given the love of a father and mother,
But never allowed to make our own move.
Simply puppets, moving on frail str...
Cutting like glass, straight to the bone,
Always bringing pain, pulling me from home,
Left like an island; desolate, alone,
Stinging, like a mace of frosted chrome,
Shot down, like a gun to a bird,
All from the utterance of just one word....
Can't you see the monster? Can't you see?
That thing; Hideous monster. It's me...
They say a vampire's reflection will never show,
So why allow this hideousness to grow?
'Tis not a reflection of the outside,
But an aperture to the things that hide.

The rain decided to visit me today,
To wrap around me like outstretched arms.
Feelings in this moment, so hard to convey,
As it retracts me from each day's harms.
The sweet smell of pure elation,

A constant assault of white clouds to my face.
As my ascent starts to come to a screeching halt,
Did I die? Is this a dream? Is it...
All throughout life, I've lived as the rejected,
Seen only as sad, pathetic, and dejected.
Characterized as stupid, pitiful, or even deranged,
Once given that label, 'tis rarely able to be changed.
Labels are for records, or even just on a soup can,
Not meant to be applied to each o...
This haven is the center of my life
Deflects pain away from my direction
And ridding me of all things bringing strife
It is always there, as my protection
It is the one place I can have some fun
The safe haven that I have claimed for me
No matter what happens there I can run
From the evil thi...
Heart and mind both race at the thought,
Of each individual mental war being fought.
My brain; Seeming to be the only fitting battleground.
Each thought seeming to triumph, no clear victor after each round.
As each thought pushes against the other, my brain seems to swell,
Neither side seems to...
