Abomination

Help me! He shrieks from the other end of the telephone line Slogans of hatred make their way out of his sore throat Heavy sobs heave out of his body and force themselves into my mind I’m not an abomination! He whispers from the other end of the telephone line A monotonous stream of promises…

Colors ||

Blue was the color of our faces when we screamed at our tormented souls to be strong Crimson was the color of our skins when we demanded the world to show us happy corners Grey was the color of our eyes when the dreary sky manifested clouds hung oppressively low White was the color of…

The End

Thunderstorms clapped their lightning upon the world and the raindrops that fell on our roofs were stained crimson The ground shook and we felt tremors, stumbling over our own footsteps and doomed by our own souls The apocalypse stomped over our fragile vessels and we tumbled into the wide crevices lining our narrow paths The…

Social Anxiety

What are you even afraid of? Go on, step out of your comfort zone! Do more of the things that scare you! You’re a big girl now, aren’t you? What I am, Is a victim of social anxiety Every stare that falls on my fragile soul scars Every whisper that floats to my ear scalds…

Panic

My eyes shoot open as a series of images flash in my head Me running from the silhouette of a disfigured organism I can’t quite label The shuffling of my feet failing to cover the pounding of my heart The crackling of leaves as I thud on their brittle bodies The world spinning as my…

Beach

She stood still in the harsh waters With her feet placed firmly on the ground The wet sand threatened to give away, creating a void Threatened to suck her in the deep bowels of the Earth The horizon cradled a setting sun in its arms And the baby went slipping down each second She reached…

My Baby
