    "My love"

    I wish that I could stop it
    This need i feel inside
    to bleed out my tears
    to run away and hide
    I wish that I could tell you
    about all of my pain
    the memories, the scars, the fear
    the things that drive me insane
    Growing until they consume me
    But I still hide it
    making sure no one can see
    I can't forget his touch
    all over my skin
    you say it isn't my fault
    but it feels like sin
    I wish i could tell you
    about the misery i feel
    and the hatred for myself
    but its just too much to reveal
    Too many bruises
    Too many lies
    Too many rapes
    and too many highs
    a reckless lifestyle
    a cocaine high
    to forget this place
    and make the days go by
    All of these dark secrets
    that i wish i could tell you
    But lies spew forth
    no matter what i do
    I say it will be alright
    that i am just fine
    But I am slowly dying
    inside this hell of mine.

    "Untitled (again)"

    No Perseus to my Andromeda
    I remain in this hell
    no one to save me
    they watched as i fell
    Crimson pools surround me
    finding escape through a blade
    my happiness is already dead
    now my soul is starting to fade
    I feel hollow and cold
    alive but yet dead
    my life consumed by terror
    haunted by what he said
    he would make everything better
    a bigger lie never told
    he left me here to suffer
    without a hand to hold
    No Hercules to slay my hydra
    no white horse in the distance
    just me and my bloodied sheets
    a one man resistance

    I wasn't particularly happy with the way that "Untitled (again)" turned out. I wasn't when i wrote it either. But the last 4 lines I really liked, enough to keep the rest of the poem for now, until i decide to edit it and make it better.

    I love your style of poetry. For myself I have found the best poetry come from me when emotions are high. And I really liked both of those and how I could feel the emotions of especially the second. :)

    Thanks Youkai, glad you enjoyed them. I don't write quite as much anymore, but occasionally I find an old one that I'd like to share. I'd like to start writing more again.
