Flashback Friday Poetry: Self-Inflicted Pain

somebody’s there
somebody swears
somebody cries
i love you

nothing is there
nobody cares
no one says
i love you

someone is with me
someone misses me
someone is screaming
i love you

no one is with you
nobody misses you
no one thinks
i love you

somewhere i’m wanted
somewhere i’m taunted
somewhere i hear
i love you

no place wants you
nothing taunts you
nothing sounds like
i love you

they all speak the truth
here is the proof
it happens all the time
so says my mind

they speak only lies
nothing can deny
they all have two faces
your mind is worthless

everything you believe
everything you achieve
means nothing

your mental shame

won’t take the blame
you’re the one
who caused the pain

you wish to stop the agony
you wish to stop the suffering
look inside yourself
and stop your mind from wandering

Throwback Thursday Poetry: Arrogant

without delay
we shall say
that we are stronger than you

we are omniscient
this is true
and we are more powerful than you

we’ve never met
we’re strangers too
but we are stronger than you

lost within
our own big heads
we are smarter than you

we battle here
we battle there
you win the fight everywhere

you beat us down
to the ground
but we are more powerful than you

Flashback Friday Poetry: The Craving for Insanity

sanity’s a drag
there’s no fun in life
what’s the point
of being normal
if you’re bored
out of your mind

everyone is crazy
if they really try
if they find
that they’re insane
they’ll have an
 interesting life

i crave for
the insanity
that captivates
my mind
lost here
within my head
and no place
to hide

the insanity
is captivating
it’s overtaking me
stay away
or you will pay
for i am provoking pain!
