LiesShe always covered herself in lies
Tracing 'unworthy' on her arms
And 'never hungry or good enough' on her belly
Her masks were always artfully applied
And her made-up happiness as perfect as her make-up
We always ignored her reality
Typing 'clichéd' as a perfect label
And 'pretender' as an explanation for inattention
We hid behind self-satisfaction
And laughter as artificial as our acrylic nails
He always stood off to the side
Tracing 'unworthy' on acts of praise
And 'for your glory and praise alone' on sunrises
He never said a word to her
And his shimmering silent life changed her forever
JoyWho wants to die to live forever
Or somehow stand for eons among the stars
When the raindrops now waken
With thunderstorm alarm clocks
And life and love are inextricably twined
Clutching roses too tightly
Scattering their petals to the five winds
North, East, South, West, and Nowhere
Bleeding from paper cuts
Inflicted with velvet honesty
Pain from the most innocent blooms
Some underlying balance
Never came in your arms
It was found in gratuitous charity
I will always love you
Even if my passion is elsewhere
And my heart is more fully drawn to Christ
MayThere are diamonds,
strung out like headlights on an empty highway,
scattered and clumped into brilliant blindness.
The velvet they scream on is fraying
twisted and shredded apart, like power lines
swaying forlornly on a somber sky.
This edge beyond the edge lights up,
pop concert bright behind the jagged-tooth fringe,
and I wonder:
How many more must die before summer is born?
allow me to tell youi can lie and be happy to
genteel in its blushes
and refined attempts to cast off
the lingering smell of cows
and cheap cigarette smoke
but where there are no lies
i must tell you
Goodbye for the millionth timeYou know why?
Because I am finally tired
Sick of twisting
=Like a worm=
Deeper into the lazy muck.
So I'm pressing on.
Praying you will raise your head above apathy someday,
But for once not waiting for you to.
I've seen others like me above the mire.
I wish to dance with them among the stars.
SadarthaSadartha, I just remembered.
Your words were never sharp enough for my eyes
Nor your laughter bitter enough for my nose.
Instead of an alarm clock frenzy
Calmness that drove me mad woke me
Somehow that was never enough
You were never enough
I was never enough.
And now, Sadartha, it is the end.
I will never be a goddess
Or a idealistic statue.
My body could never stay the same anyways.
Drown down down downThe flying, biting
Sweetness isn't enough to shade the
I drown myself again and again
Yet still cannot entirely distance myself
From those hideous memories
And fierce, deliciously real, reality
Nor can I cloak my current desires
