Lonely Little Girl
Once upon a time there was a lonely little girl. She had no one to play with, no one to tell her stories, and no one to tuck her in at night. She would cry everyday, her dress stained with tears.
Every night she prayed to God to rescue her from her loneliness, but he never answered. One day she stopped praying.
“I would sell my soul if it meant my loneliness would end” she said. And the Devil heard her. He gladly shook her hand as she signed her soul away to him.
Her wish was finally granted. The townspeople flocked to her and sung of her praises. She had more friends than she could count. She was finally happy, and no longer alone.
But little by little, the Devil began to harden her heart, until she grew to despise each and every one of her friends.
“So annoying are they!” she cried. “So stupid! So selfish! So obnoxious! So unkind!”.
Slowly she drove away all of her friends as her rage and anger bubbled over, until at last she was all alone again.
She wept bitterly once more.
“Why?” She sobbed. “Why have you forsaken me?”
“I haven’t forsaken you at all”, said the Devil.
“But....I’m all alone again! And everyone hates me!”.
“I gave you friends, I never said you could keep them”.
“B-but I don’t want to be alone! I want to be loved! It’s not fair!”.
The Devil paused a moment, scratching his chin, until at last he had an idea.
“I know a place that’s perfect for a spiteful and solitary creature like you!” He grinned.
He took her hand in his and dragged her down to Hell. There she was surrounded by demons. They tore at her flesh and eyes, desperately trying to get a part from the one they loved so much. They ripped at her hair and gnawed on her bones. She finally got her wish. She was never alone again.
Together with you
I was the happiest I’d ever been
You made me a better woman
The joy with you was unparalleled to anything I’d ever felt
I got down on one knee and asked you to be with me always
When you said yes my heart leaped with joy
We were going to be together
But then you left me standing there
Alone and crying
Many years have passed since then
But no one else compares to you
And now you’re gone
And I’m alone
It’s been two years today
Since you went away
And left me broken hearted
When you suddenly departed
Then life went sour
Weeks felt like hours
The things you said, they hurt my heart
But it’s too late now for me to restart
There will never be another one like you
Love is a losing game, that’s true
I’m left with only dread
Coming deep inside my head
My hatred for humanity
Slipping mask of sanity
Bubbles from underneath
Cuts like a Sword without a sheath
But I still can’t stop loving you
No matter what you say or do
I’d do anything to have you back by my side
I’d search for you far and wide
But you don’t love me
And I’m trapped in my misery
It’s been two years since the day
That you went away
Drag You to Hell
Deep in my heat I abhor you
You broke my heart, took my money, and drove me insane
Where are you now?
No one knows.
In an alley shooting up?
In the arms of a stranger?
Dead in a ditch?
I do not wish for a better world for you
I hope all your demons dragged you to Hell
And your nightmares became reality
I hope your friends abandoned you
And your family disowned you
I hope your body betrays you
Just like mine did
But now no one will be your “caregiver”
If you died
I wouldn’t bat an eye
And if I see you on the other side
I’ll gladly spend eternity torturing you
As the seconds go by
The dogs are sleeping
The birds are chirping
My throat and skin is on fire
The frigid air freezes your breath like smoke in the wind
The kettle boils, hissing and screaming like a mad woman
The tea leaves come to life as the steaming water enriches them
You glance out at the shadows and sun, an unfamiliar setting that you’re all too familiar with
I submerge my head under water and count the seconds as they go by
She was hated from birth
But came from the earth
Flesh and blood, but to them
She wasn’t human
She was an animal, a devious act
A rabid dog waiting to attack
They were disgusted, she was shunned
But her trials had only begun
Words and actions like contusions
So she went away
It was not her price to pay
Someone must understand
There must be a better land
She goes from place to place
Remembering neither names nor faces
And you know what?
She’s still searching
Sweet American Dreams
She came to this place looking for her American Dream, but she never anticipated the nightmare it would turn into.
She came from a small town in Russia that no one here knew how to pronounce or cared to. She met him online. It looked picture perfect, they looked picture perfect. Of course, underneath that it was always brewing.
“That bitch is after his money”.
“Mail Order whore”.
“Anything for a green card”.
She smiled and didn’t know what they were saying, nor cared to know.
She smiled as she waited for her visa to approve, through all the documents and papers, on the many hours spent on a plane, and on the day she said “I do”. Ascending down to the altar like some kind of angel, she was so close to us mortals yet so far into her own heaven.
She was abruptly awoken from her dream when they escorted her new husband away, in handcuffs.
