to quit giving in
to temptation's demands,
but I'm not sure I'll win.
Will my will measure up
to the weakness within
or has my resolve
worn irreparably thin?
MediocrityIn the mushy middle
right between loved and despised.
With no distinguishing features,
but potential unrealized.
It leaves no lasting impression,
just emphatic apathy
so all that's left to say
is that there's nothing here to see.
I'm FreeBreaking out of old
and their inherent
until all that's left
to embrace the
to say exactly
Don't StopI've got to keep on moving,
there's no time to take a break.
If I let up now,
it just might be my last mistake.
I need to take a breath,
but just can't afford to slow.
I've made too little progress
and I've got too far to go.
DigitariaA survivor of a war
that will never be won
makes its way through the cracks
bent on finding the sun.
The tenacious invader,
Doing all that it can
just to live one more day.
One DayThe inevitable inches closer,
slowly stalking me.
Shadowing my every step
and I know that eventually
it's going to catch up with me.
I can not get away
so all that's left to do is live,
while I still can, today.
Final DescentSpinning out of control,
toward something much worse
than I could have imagined before.
Falling into a hole,
with no way to reverse
my trajectory anymore.
Fraying ThreadTemptation is drawing me
into where I dare not tread
and what's left of my self-control
hangs on by a fraying thread.
I find myself biding my time
calculating the cost of regret,
and wishing that I could forget.
Would That I CouldI realize I shouldn't,
but I know that I could
and if I did
that it would feel so good.
Yet, I'm also aware
of the pain it would bring
so I'll try to resist,
try to do the right thing.

The Stepmother's TaleI found a man in my garden bed,
Picking herbs for his wife, he said,
For she was hungry and heavy with child.
"For greens, your daughter is mine," I smiled.
So after the birth, I took her away
To a tall, doorless tower where she would stay.
I was her mother, she my one care--
"Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your fair hair!"
But then a prince came and stole her young heart,
So I cut her long locks and let her depart.
I took her tresses for my own
And saw how beautiful I had grown.
Then I wondered: could I, too,
Find a prince so valiant and true?
I married a king, to my delight,
With one daughter named Snow White.
Though his age was quite obscene,
I was his happily cherished queen.
Until -- "Mirror, on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?"
Was my stepdaughter fairer than I?
Jealousy declared that she must die!
I followed her deep into the forest
To where dwarves mined; "Hi ho," they chorused.
Disguised, I fed her an apple so red
That after one bite she was thoroughly dead.
BlackI always wear the colour black
As it reflects my inner mood
Black is the absence of colour
Now I feel the absence of you
Black is my inert, withered heart
Immobilised since you’ve been gone
A vacuous hole of nothing
Lifeless, vapid and monochrome
Black is the frayed material
Of the grim reaper’s deathly cloak
So in the darkest evening sky
You would never see his approach
Black is the colour and the shade
Of the star speckled, moonlit sky
And the shadow which you once cast
In the early morning sunshine
Black is my weeping mascara
As down my face the tears will stream
From the little puddles of ink
My pupils nowhere to be seen
Black are those things I've gazed upon
With my sorrowful eyes shut tight
Even rainbows become polluted
Within the filth of my mind’s eye
Black is how I’m feeling today
But should I not be feeling blue
Like my blood before you cut it red
Like your blood before I cut you
Black is t
FREAK F is for fearing all those who
R is for the rage that
rules at its demand.
E is for every heart that she
A is for the anger that lives deep
K is for the kindness that can take over
How thin can you go?
Up for a challenge?
Painful and slow.
Waiting it out
Obsessed with forbidden
Skip one more meal
Keeping secrets hidden
Watching seconds tick
Saying you're not hungry
Denying you're sick
Tastes long forgotten
You're still savoring
Feels so cold
Then legs fold
Lives are broken
DepressionThoughts run through your mind
'I'm a failure, I'm worthless'
Feel like you're being left beind
Invisible to everyone
Your world is just so bleak
You believe words they say
'You're pathetic, unwanted'
You must be that way
Got no one to turn to
Your 'friends' have all gone
They didn't have a clue
You slit your wrists, want to die
Through your veins runs despair
Ashamed, it's all your fault
To you life isn't fair
Sat in a corner, tears in your eyes
There's no hep, you're on your own
Force a smile so they don't realise
You just can't cope anymore
That's not true, there's someone there
To help you out, help you through
Help you sort troubles, beat depression
Making you a happier you
The scars a permanent reminder
Of all the pain you survived
You're not worthless or a failure
Not pathetic or unwanted
SchoolIt’s like I’m trapped within a cage
The synchronized turning of every page
Being forced to stand on a stage
These people all fill me with rage
“I could easily destroy this place
To find me they would have to chase
I could turn the walls into rubble-”
OH SH-! They heard me! Now I’m in trouble!
The class writing about a book we read
As another part of my soul drops dead
But I’m too distracted by the clocks tick
“Mum I can’t go today, I’m sick…
Angel of DeathMy Angel of Death
I watch as you drown in the life you left behind:
(One foot forward, two steps back)
Always in the past, (Can't look towards the end)
Please; don't realize what you lack.
I watched as you turned away from everything
Thinking: 'It's now or be declined'
Your tourniquet can't last for ever.
Don't you realize that you're blind?
Standing in the doorway,
Looking at your restless form; hair in tides.
Your angel of death is here.
To be your suicide.
Smiling as you try to piece back the puzzle,
That used to be your life,
But you tore it all apart.
Let you hold weaken on that knife.
You know that's true.
Your heart can't handle all this pain.
Listen to my call. You know.you.have.to.
I stretch my hand forward,
Suddenly I'm visible to you.
Please just cast your gaze on mine.
I'm here; you knew.
I will take to a beautiful world of dreams.
Just close your eyes, clear your head.
I will take your soul away from reality;
Just always look ahead.
Learn To Be StrongThis is normally the time when the tears come
When the words hurt and the bruises sting
But little did they know you have grown inside
Now you are immune to their bullying
The chances are that they may have suffered too
But this is no reason to be so vile
Now you’re twelve angry men finding them guilty
Of stealing your taut, tremulous smile
This is normally the time when you tremble
Huddle yourself up into a ball
But the only spherical shape they’ll be seeing
Is the flail as it maims and appals
The chances are that you will shatter their skull
And with that become as bad as them
Where were their morals when you were the victim?
You just want good old fashioned revenge
This is normally the time you’re rendered silent
But today you’ve at last found your voice
Now both weapon and word are lay beside you
You are no beast, you’ll make the right choice
And the chances are that when they’re confronted
The shamed predator will know they’ve done wrong
