You Made Me Take a Separate Path

There are two paths in front of mecc38e2932ac7dadf283d1496e4504d4a
Two completely different
Both life changing
Take one side and you will walk with me
Hand in hand until the end of the road
The other side is lonely but I know that there are merging roads and paths along the way
Possibly you will be on one of those paths waiting for me as well
But it’s taking a chance
Either path is painful
With branches grabbing at my face and arms
Barefoot walking over sharp rocks
Either way is a completely different plan than my original purpose
Which pain to choose?
You could come and follow me down my path
But we both know that you want to go your separate way…

Exploding Time Bomb

6f6c132eb8fbd5cd457dd7cf1643a7d2A ticking time bomb

Every morning waking up disappointed that she didn’t detonate over night

Adding fuel to keep her going every day is a hardship when she would rather just explode

Problem is the destruction you leave behind afterwards

A huge mess for someone else to clean up4781bd0720d526a6a4a6babbf73c6100

Your loved ones finding the results of the catastrophe

Black coating everything that she used to touch

A thin film of memories covering the surfaces of peoples lives

Time is running out

 

Author of your Pain

People always ask1a9ddd9fd75c4607b601ed5682e3fdbc
If you knew the ending to your story would you read it?
But what if you were the author writing the next page?
Yet the next page you are forced to write is a tragedy…
how would you write your tragedy knowing that you decided what it was
how it will affect the rest of your book
how you have to decide how you will suffer
Create your loss and heartbreak
the pen is in your hand
there must be ink on the next page
or will you abruptly end it and burn everything alive?

Shattered

Pure porcelain

White and smooth of imperfection

But every once in a while you chip my steady surface

I patch it up as quickly as I can

Seal the chips with the most durable promise possible

But duct tape and glue can only hold so much together

Nicks on the exterior eventually lead to cracks in the shell of my porcelain

Cracks getting longer and deeper

Adhesive can only fix so much…

…Until I shatter

Lobotomize my Soul

af7237b19d9c99baa41f68436a0733c8You used to say my love was a drug

But love is an addiction

Always wanting more and never satisfied

Drug me up

Numb me

I can’t handle the addiction

No rehab can get me out of this mess except lock me up and put me away

Suffocate me and shove the painkillers down my throat

Lobotomize my soul

Don’t let me go

Pieces to You

I’ll come to you in pieces e9fcd2cf4b9c842029a30d8ca7649237
You can make me whole again
Blown up scattered remains
Limp flesh encased in a cage of metal
Glued between a steering wheel and concrete
Piece me together
Peel me off the cement
Collect my parts
Try to breathe life into my soul again
I don’t care if I come back
But at least I’ll be with you

Destiny

37d4455513ebc62aeadb3aa454aaae14fcc3ece292d2730ff7c6a4f2b1a5d0baIf it’s meant to be it will be
But I know that rushing everything isn’t our destiny
If you leave and you still can not find the love that you lack
I’ll be here for when you get back
This I cannot say or will not express
For if I was utter these words you would love me less

Dangers of Chemistry

73349d943be7b7cbd1ac401e2281c19aThere’s chemistry

Yet, a high risk for spontaneous combustion

The universe may be infinite but we are finite

Ready to explode at any moment in time

A little spark can set everything ablaze

Valuable ingredients missing and the whole equation is off

You won’t get the desired result

No happy ending

Just poison in a beaker full of lust and regret

 

Escaping Neverland

82750af66448622ece3b8f3225be9c07“When you’re older you’ll understand”

This is why we all rush to grow up

Screw Neverland

We all want someone to hold our hand

Grow up to experience life

All the glory in the battlefields but you won’t let us fight

You shade us

“You’ll understand…”

“If only you understood…”

But you won’t let us66711b38df7dc1f3b97879f3f90f3306

Forbidden to grow up

The innocent

The corrupt

All kids that have escaped Neverland

Give me some of your pixie dust

I want out too
