THE APPETITE OF NAMELESS PAIN

Abuse my body to see if they care, they look concerned but they don’t ask right, their criticism makes me want to cry, because I know that they can’t do anything to stop it, the pain requires a larger audience, but soon no one will care about me, I thought I cared if they cared, …

REST ON YOUR WINGS OF FIRE

Stop acting like every breath you take stole you from death, My nightmares only come alive when I can’t send myself to sleep, I can’t seem to find my breath as the figments of my imagination play too heavily on my emotions, Now every movement they make, even to offer me kindness, I am a …

Never-ending, I continue flowing, Never-stopping, Consuming fire, Afraid of the cold, For when I freeze, I do not move, I barely breathe, but despair, holding onto a rope, called hope. Waiting for the sun, to melt me from, this icy shell. When spring …

DREAMING

DREAMING  Do we stop dreaming only when we have everything we want? Does fragility make you sad? In a dream I saw the sea waves become like sand and the horses turn to lions. In another dream, a woman uttered Hebrews 4. Each dream I swallow like a prophecy. Begging my mind to reveal the …

WHERE DO I GO FROM HERE?

WHERE DO I GO FROM HERE? Just how much of the day is occupied with thoughts, makes time go away. In a day, there are so many opportunities to do good. I just cannot seem to fulfill them all. But the hope of doing good in a world so bad makes life precious. Pain is …
