BIZARRE STARS

BIZARRE STARS

There is nothing we can’t do, the emptiness seethes, 

We can be anything but we wade in fear, 

The pool is dark and deep, we are in a world of sleep,  

Bloodshot eyes won’t wake up to reality, 

Numbness masks the turmoil submerged in a black sea, 

Deep down, past the monsters & nightmares,  

I find solace in the emeralds & rubies that blare,   

It counts one, two and three, you speed into the air,

What is enclosed in the mind is set free only in this momentum, 

I cry because he doesn’t know, touch & smiles are seldom,  

I will never say the words I want to say, I am dying, 

Nobody wants to hold my hand, even the stars are horrifying, 

Happiness can’t take me nowhere, no more, not even you,

You cannot stare so freely; gaze like a knife piercing through.

Your ‘hello’ is my alarm,

Your hands leave me disarmed, 

Eyes so wide like the Earth that’s spinning, 

Got me disoriented, displaced and sinning, 

I hold nothing but shards in my hands, 

My blood flows freely, I told her you won’t understand.

I will keep pushing away, searching for a new jewel,

All I do is laugh and cry, think me a fool.

If you have nothing, you being to treasure everything,

That slips away, human touch is next to nothing, 

My mind recedes and loves like a bruised heart, 

My writing all twisted and torn, this is my art,

With all this pain we carry like barely-held-in water, 

It’s about time one of us blows & life seems shorter.
