Literature
.
upside down, reversed, and twisted
is how i feel when your name
creeps along my membranes.
Our love was stale -
and yet -
so toxic.
My heart -
ripped off -
my sleeve,
and hung out to freeze
in the coldest of winter
storms in December.
No summer love could thaw out
what you created inside of me.

Literature
.
Absent man, lurking in the shadows.  
It was March when she said her final goodbyes  
by laying awaken in a locked gaze.  
I did not see you that day nor at her day of remembrance.  
my rose never approached her grave.
But approached your hands instead, and was left
to die when you decided to reunite with her.  
 
The question of death was on your mind and you  
found the answer through experimentation; I hardly knew  
you, but the pictures on the walls told stories about you and  
your family, and these smiles were as artificial as your paranoia.  
And that note you hung on the basement door gave your son  
mistaken hope that you might still be alive. Was she worth the asphyxiation where  your  
son discovered your animated body almost touching the ground.  
 
Dear father in law, almost but never; I see you haunt these hallways  
in picture frames; if these walls could speak, they'd say nothing.

Literature
.
this storm between us -
is eroding my warmest memories
of you.
i can't remember you
without pain -
remembering you is like
waiting on the train tracks
for the past to almost pass
me by.

Literature
Our Love Hides Inside Me
the way you -
twist my words -
make my lips - -
crack.
i bleed out
your tangled
stories onto
these walls
that could
not speak
but now scream.
my heart is in knots,
this deformity inside myself,
warped amongst my bones.
your lies live inside me,
but you're no longer here.

Literature
The Case Of The Shrilling
your voice is like a sword and it is my heart at the end of the blade.
                                                           {your wrath}
:iconatlantic-lungs:atlantic-lungs

Literature
.
you're like an insect -
injecting animosity into
my blood-stream.
you made my mind
into your nest - -
it's like - -
i have an ear-worm
and your - - -
voice is the only
song i want to hear.
- - - - -
- - - - -
  - - - - -
I want to be the exterminator
that puts you to sleep
like the prince that you
were.

Literature
.
And maybe i'm still
asleep,
dreaming
about
the
future - -
while
my
body
remains
abandoned
in
the
past.

Literature
Romance Wars
you know it's love
when it feels like
there's a nuclear war
inside your chest.
Like an atomic bomb
about to set off whenever
our fingers tips
accidentally touch.
so tell me why
you thought you
were in love if
you couldn't even
fight in this war
between our
battered hearts.
:iconatlantic-lungs:atlantic-lungs
:iconatlantic-lungs:atlantic-lungs 17 4
Literature
.
falling in love
is like collapsing
onto the ground
with daggers,
blossoming from beneath.
Does it make
me masochistic
to want to f.a.l.l.
in love
with you,
even if it means
every time you
touch me -
it feels like I'm dying.

Literature
Subway Suicide
subway suicide
was on her
wish list.
he painted
her body
black to
mask
everything
she wanted
to scream.
I couldn't wait
for the lies to
wash off anymore,
I had to jump to
let my truths
be seen.

Literature
Ocean Floor Homicide
if i asked you to save me -
you'd bury me
underneath
the ocean floor.
you always said -
i'd be more
beautiful
if i was
 dead.

Literature
-
forgetful dreams sewn amongst my stomach -
wishing i could turn my skin inside out - - -
so i'm not reminding of what a failure i am of love.
but i won't rip out of eyes - -
for then i'm forced to never see you again.
maybe i'll forget if i forgive you for the sins we committed.
:iconatlantic-lungs:atlantic-lungs

Literature
.
wishing your traffic light mind
would break down
& give in because
my lungs have gone black
from smoking this insanity
for far too long just to
make you love all of me.

we were born from ashes

Literature
She Dreams Of Homicide Wishes
do you know what it feels like -
to have no heart beat -
short of breath - - -
and emotionless -
because that's how i feel when i
look at you - - -
you make me feel dead inside.

I am not on much anymore, but i do post poetry on my instragram :]

I will never know who I am,
& if i don't know,
how will you ever love me in return?

The ocean will take me steal me away one day
and i hope that everything i want is for me & no one else.

& and hope that i will forever want you & no one else.

There are no buts & maybes;
I'm doing it.

***I have to update this, it's been awhile & lots have changed

i started writing poetry in the summer, going into tenth grade. 2007 was the year. Have been writing ever since & now have a diary of my life.

I feel terrible for not submitting and for being absent.
I haven't really been writing recently for the past year.
I have been busy with college, it has taken over my life. That is only part of the reason, I am not inspired lately.
