I Ate Your Cheese
I ate your cheese.
But you left it
in the fridge.
And it was getting moldy.
Or maybe not.
It’s hard to tell
with blue cheese.
I’m not proud of it
But it called to me
in it’s little cheesy voice.
“eat me, I’m delicious”.
And you know what?
Can I still crash on your couch?
Your cat likes me…
Tears sprinkled little earthen plot,
crying for husband they said had run off.
Young woman tended crimson flowers
dawn to dusk as red moon stared
at carmine earth in its burgundy light.
Rich mixture of red clay and iron
brought joy as she turned copper dirt,
muscles aching as she plunged spade,
mixing in white bone meal to fertilize.
Spirits lifted working the ground -
sad lonely girl, townspeople said,
gossiping about husband finding
blossom supplying sweet honey.
Budding lass just smiled to herself,
roses bloomed so lush and full,
sadness dissipated with her secret
husband’s bones enriched the earth.
The stuffed animals
They could talk
They could think
They could smile
They could even wink
Or did they only blink?
We would talk
For hours on end
I was only a kid
Who needed a friend
I'm not lying
I'm not joking
I thought it was true
No more poking
They said that's a sign
Of a sociopath
Not the imaginary part
Cuz it may have been more than that
They told me to hurt people
The mean ones only
But I didn't listen
And that's why I know
Your fingers constructed abandoned houses wherever they touched me
And every night I see you but you're nothing more than an apparition in the corner of my eye
With every "I Love You," you injected ghosts into my bloodstream-
Leaving me haunted even when you weren't there
So now I can't sleep with the lights off
Because even the sun can't chase away your shadows
And priests won't set foot near my front door
(They've given me up to the devil)
A Hidden Truth
I knew it would happen as soon as I
I knew that soon he would occupy
my thoughts and fill them
with burning wishes.
I knew that I mustn't share
this with anyone.
The feelings I had toward him
had from the very beginning been attraction.
I loved everything about him,
except for one little thing.
He was permanently glued to my mind.
But this secret, it was too dark to tell.
Too deep, for though she didn't love him back,
he loved her, leaving me as nothing more than once again
second to my very own sister.
Love is War.
They hurt you
You rose above
Killing them sweetly with love
Vendetta without much ado.
i couldn’t say
how bodies gasp
how goosebumps glaze thighs
or how the mind, blind
earthworm, writhes and
crawls for rain
or how the skin explodes -
don't ask me to explain.
With false promises
We’re all you’ve got, they say
What would you do without us?
Conspiring with my depression
Keeping me bloodied and malnourished
Laughing at me when I tell them to leave
We’re not going anywhere, they proclaim
Manipulating my puppet strings
Eliminating my free will
Setting me up for failure
Unhealthy coping skills
They are not my friends
I’m tired of this
So guess what?
Dark vampire eyes
Sultry delicious creatures
They intrigue me
Fantasies run within my mind
I want to be bitten
I just want one night
I have dark secrets
Smiles all around
They see me hide
Dug into the ground
No one's on my side
They tell me they are here for me
They tell me I'm okay
Yet no one knows that at night is when I pay
Pay for the secrets dug into my blood
Pay for the secrets that a thousand words hung
Pay for the secrets yet why can't I see?
Don't you understand? There are monsters inside of me!!
