Hope to Die

The holes are closing up
The waters closing in
Sitting here
Fearing for my salvation.
And I wonder
If you even care.
Care if I die today
Care if I dare
To slice my skin
Drain my blood
Take a pin
And stick my veins.
Cross my heart
And hope to die
Take a dart
Make me fly.
Up to heaven
Where I will cry,
“God save me.”


In Dark & Narrow Spaces

In dark and narrow spaces
I crumble and I crawl
Often times I don’t know
When I fall
Cracking, breaking,
Shattering like a doll.
Ill make this into
A nasty brawl,
All to keep from falling
From the floor to the wall.

Hidden in the Dust

You liar,
You two-faced mirror,
You say you care?
Ha! I laugh.
How can you even dare
To say such a thing.
You don’t care.
You say,
“You’re bringing me down,
You need to stop being sad.”
How can you say that
When you say you care
In the same sentence
You don’t care
So pay your dues
Get out of my life
You drunken excuse
For a friend.

Watery Wondering

Laying here in hot water
It’s no more than life
That gets at me
My throat closing
Making so I cannot breath.

What it would be
If I lay in the water
Longer than I should
Will things get better
Cleaner even.

I’ll learn to close my mouth
Shut off the evil words
The ones I encourage
When I speak them, absurd
How easy it is
To dirty the water.

I’ve Sinned

I wonder if the sin itself is what’ll send me to hell,
If I’ll end up in a cage full of demons like myself
Those who’ve sinned and not repented
Or if I’ll be placed in my separate box,
To rot away like the tainted fruits I carry
For I am only human
How was I supposed to know any better?
Was it truly my fault?
Was it truly my own act?
Or did I have accomplices,
Those friends who passed me the blunt
Who passed me the cancer stick
And made me run a mile before telling me
What they were actually made of
They obviously didn’t care.
