Double Edged Words

Double Edged Words

The words sat before her
A blessing and a curse
For so long she has wanted to see them
For so long she denied their truth
She had cast away that memory
Disregarded it as the power of the full moon
Said in the past on a whim
But forgotten over the passing of time
Said in a talk of passion
But disregarded now that the rings are entwined
The words sat before her
A blessing and a curse
Tears filled her eyes
Causing the words to blur
For he had written I Love You
And she knew his heart to be true
Even though he was just married
His heart was still partially hers
She wiped the tears from her lashes
And bid him sweet good night
In his dreams she would come to him
In her dreams she would be his bride.

Drown It

::Drown It::

Seeps into my soul
Eats my self control
Drink to drown it out
Demons scream and shout
Cant run away from this
Feelings never missed
Don’t wanna feel this way
Demons come to play
Cant control my mind
Thought that I was fine
Lost my self control
Drink to save my soul

enough anger to breach a 6 year writers block

I’m Undone

Black is the look I see in your eyes
I turn my face so you don’t see me cry
Anger unleashed burning my face
My ears bleed at the words you say
After this eruption
What do I have left
A flow of venom
To scar my breast.

Spider Web

~ Spider Web ~

Spider web
Ghostly threads
Caught my heart
My soul is bled
Glowing eyes
Wrap me tight
Shuts out the light
For breath I fight
Velvet voice
Laughs at me
I don’t want to hear
I cannot flee
Spider web
With dew drops glow
Luminescent threads
Feel so cold
Glowing eyes
Gaze at me
I don’t want to see
The sea of green
Velvet voice
Whispering
In my dreams
I am whimpering
For the spider web
Has captured me
Lulling me from safety
Into nothing but spider webs
Ghostly threads
Invade my head
Spider webs
Ghostly threads
Caught in nightmares of spider webs
