Literature
Robot
I see, through lucid eyes
A fear I recognize
I'm a fool but I'll compromise
Reincarnate from all the damaging lies
Everything I've been through
How can I lie and still tell the truth
My hands damaged
My hearts a mess
But how did I manage?
To deal with all this stress?!
The past is the past
And yet I have nothing left
You don't need a third eye
The two you have are just fine
I'll rip your fucking throat out and then call it mine
But I'll still give you the ground you came to find!
I was at the end of my rope
So I climbed to the top - and tied it into a noose
Where is the lie when you tell the truth?!
I'm unchained as I float over eggshells
Is it that hard to tell?!
I'm fading from the silence
Toward my long waited resurgence!
I am alive!

Nicotine Lips
Beware the night
It’s a wonderful ride
It’s a beautiful lie
on such a body
A vision so loose
Blinded by beauty
I’m young but broken
My bones need to strengthen
Out of the ashes and into the light
I’ve been in line, all my life.
Did I ever have a doubt?
Not to mention the things we never talked about
Speak out loud!
We act like we are not allowed!
Scream and shout!
Or I’ll try and shut you out!
I’d rather do drugs with you
then say goodbye to you
but I hate them
and you do too
Out of the ashes and into the light
I’ve been in line, all my life.
I’m flying on fumes
over top our flowers bloomed
they smell like your perfume
I’m dying to sing our tune
and to kiss you

Crimson
Remember when?
The past is the past,
and I'm not going back
Look ahead
I feel your warm breath
In between our lips
Every time we kiss
It seems the demons
are my best friends
Is this the end?
I won't let them in
Has it come to this?
My love will never slip
I can't deny this
I need to know if yours did
Even through the blur
You can see the bigger picture
But we're playing fire
And we'll get burned

Among Our Star
These eyes cannot see
Weak in the knees
Fight through the illusions I think I dream
At least they’re memories
Rain wash me
Away
How can you fix what isn't broken
How can you uplift the fallen?
I have my own demons, oh god am I the devil?
It would’ve been infinite
Where is your belief?
Cast me out to sea
Let the rain wash her away
She had to be set free
I've learned to fight hate with love
And not to drink as much
We made our choices but and I don't agree
Sway deep down of what we can be
But I'm an optimist, so keep it positive
I leave our minds up subject, logic
How can you count a beating heart?
Even though it's torn apart.
The deception was mine
It will fold over time
Let the rain wash it away
I think I'll be okay

CXXXIII
I walk alone
Into an open cage
Where I want to stay
You will remember me
More important than the air I breathe
Flowing through memories
I love the combat
I know you hate that
Stay put, and fight back
It's a blessing, not a curse
You wanted someone else
Or something worse
I can show you the universe
Chasing the sunlight
Right before my eyes
On the streets at night
Closing eyes, remember?
Recreate October
We can dance there forever

Swollen
A toast to us
All the cards are on the table
Ready to scatter
Running backwards
The butterflies will grow and prosper
This difference within us
The difference between us
We became fair
A voiceless prayer
You're right in front of me,
but I wonder where
This difference within us
The difference between us
We smile, we gain
We laugh, we cry
We pull, we strain
She cries in pain
I bend my life
Between us, we age
We build this life..
Together (together)
We found true love
Drowning in each others tears
We smile, we gain
We laugh, we cry
We pull, we strain
We evolve.
We CRY and we face the PAIN
We have you and I
My muscles strain
....because I can't wait for you.

Literature
Omaha
Grab your fucking scissors
Cut through the blisters
Lick your bleeding fingers
Shove it in your mouth
Crawling in the drought
Get bent, let it get wet
Drown in piss and sweat
Dying face down in a foxhole
HOW MANY LIKES CAN THAT GET?!
Time spent\dig your trench
Dig your grave\quench your thirst
Rotting corpses\Crawling stench
Is that the best you can do?
Do you remember them yet?!
Relentless\familiar - life, the simulator
Procrastinate, we can do it later!
The walls are caving in, selfish antidote
Collapsing serum, will slit your fucking throat!
Lies to numb the truth
Don't bother me, I don't want to move
Social compassion\crippled ambition
Does the mirror hate your reflection?!
They fought for television
and died for false attention
We know there's a problem
Cowards only want to listen
We're taking life for granted!
Our minds are recorded/our phones are infected
Nations with a dick measuring contest
A joke, so fucking useless
In the end, we fought for nothing!
OH MY GOD! OMAHA! OMAHA!

The Glass Cannon
She always finds her way
To get inside my brain
Claim the earth
Collect the stars
Walk the path
This world is ours
Embrace your crowd
I know you'll make them proud
I won't be discontent
I won't be disobeyed
I will break these chains
Hit the waves
and serenade
Sing with me
and silently
Wait on the glass
Float in the clouds
Make the moment last
I am here now

Frames
Until the day I'm gone
I will not stop holding on
Even in the gutter I feel at home
I love those diamond eyes
You don't realize you have full control
Of me, hold me
Hanging on to my arms
Every word is a song
And I'm just humming along
We are the cure, not the disease
We are the truth, not the hypocrisy
we just want to be alone, we are not your enemy
Sharing the empathy, sharing our chemistry
We create our own memories
This world has nothing to teach me
I need her so much, I just need to scream
I look at those emeralds and don't feel alone
I love how she moans
I love the ache in my bones
I love how we've grown
Nothings missing, just the space in the meantime
The peace in a lifetime
The best of my enzymes
A controlled chemical substance
We are constant
Sharing the eruption

Hazel
Your legs are strained
My back is in pain
Our energy is drained
We lay, side by side
We feel amazing
We needed us
To pick up the pieces
You've become my disease
and you're the cure I need  
I crave those hazel eyes
The way you look at me
When we both died
We became alive
Flaws to uphold each other
We can conquer
When we are together
This wasn't random
I no longer feel abandoned
She is art
A canvas, so smart
Strength and beauty
Put together make her  
But what the hell was wrong with me?
Why did I cause a hurricane?
How did I get so lucky?

Instinct
Just drive
Close your eyes
You're free with the sky
Don't wonder why
You're free
The world is not what is seems
It's fucking disgusting
We need a release
A self learned therapy
To remember
OF WHO WE COULD BE
So drive, close your eyes
Be free, for the moment
Instinct is vital
Survival, an anvil!

Tribute (Tribe)
[Fuck off, I'm so fucking pissed at you! Fuck you, you little fuckin' bitch! FUCK YOU!]
Tied to the knot
Tangled in a rot
Words have been cut
Lies have been caught
Lairs been shot
Honest men, the honest nine
Where are my brothers? Where are mine?
They were denied, but they struggled fine
They made the best of their time
Carrying the weight of America, the drama
Crawl inside the minds that bend
That care about you, instead
I can hear the wheels turning and it's never to late
We're all in this together, maggots - unite
The truth has been spilled
But who can regurgitate?
Who can voice what has already been said?
The nine honest men
Tied in a knot
Disgusting but what I want

Spit
So go on and take the high road
The end is nigh though
From paradise to parasites
Our ambition duplicates
Into nothingness, into madness
it's time to upset the balance
reflect,
deflect,
jackals don't get the malice
have you seen such prejudice?  
Animals, wild
Criminal, child
disease is the antidote
Scream into silence
Jump into the violence
Be one with the crowd
You're seen, not heard
Sight with no vision,
Christ with no redemption
wars with no ending
Take the beggars cards
How easy it can be?
It's not hard

Sonder
My bones, my soul, my fire
I wander, aware of sonder
Discover
I missed my world, my daughter
I close my eyes forever
Tears, I remember
Red leaves in September
Echoed screams from summer
I remember
I won't run, I am unopened and I'm broken
Society cold with embers
Drowning out my anger
Inhaling dreams of sulfur
Our dust, our bones, our souls, alone together
The entry has been breached
The silence becomes a scream

A LITTLE EXISTENCE III THE WAR
A LITTLE EXISTENCE III – THE WAR
CHAPTER ONE: CHANGE OF PLANS
(10:15pm, September 28th - Five months left.)
I started smoking again, I don’t know why. I was standing in the middle of the bridge looking out into the cold black water while finishing my cigarette. The inhales came in stronger than before, these were the good ones. I was in a deep trance about everything and it felt as if I wasn’t even looking down at the water, but perhaps just nothingness instead. My mind was somewhere else and the time was flying by. The sound of the waves were no longer delayed as I felt whole and at peace with myself. I had become one with this town, and I agreed to its terms.
It was far too cold for late September, but the piercing nicotine felt good running through my throat. My arms hung from the railing, over a hundred feet from the freezing lake. I watched one of many cigarettes float down and away into the constant flow of nothingness. The light wind breezed through my entire b
