Into the Unknown

Gasping breaths

Filled the room

A body became

Alive once more

 

The body was laying

In a porcelain tub

Red water turned cold

With the time that had gone

 

A pale arm dripped

Onto the floor

The steady stream

That scared her no more

 

She wanted to be free

Of the monster that screamed

Within the blood

That filled her with life

 

The arm trembled slowly

As feeling returned

Bright eyes blinked closely

And tears broke forth

 

Disbelief filled her

At her failed plan

A life not wanted

An attempt for an end

 

Her heart beat faster

As the door started shaking

The banging of hands

The voices now shaking

 

Her body rose slowly

Tired and cold

She opened the door

Into the unknown

Finally Free

You told me dreams never come true

That wishes are only bad for you

You told me I’d never achieve anything

But I proved you wrong

Look at me now

 

I’m finally free

Free enough to breathe

Time to spread my wings

And soar up to the sky

Chasing the clouds

Taking my time

Flying without fear

For the first time

I’m finally free

 

You were always told that people are just fakes

Trying to find a way to get inside your heart

Only to break it apart

But you proved them wrong

Look at you now

 

You’re finally free

Free enough to breathe

Time to spread your wings

And soar up to the sky

Chasing the clouds

Taking your time

Flying without fear

For the first time

You’re finally free

Average Life

Pissed off teacher

Pay attention

 

Learn a lesson

Don’t ask questions

 

In one ear

Nothing sticks

 

Out the other

Listen kids

 

Pass the test

Forget the rest

 

Make an A

Or cry all day

 

Lose your mind

To get good grades

 

Go to college

Take some classes

 

Pick a degree

You don’t want

 

Look for a job

To get a paycheck

 

Forget about

Any dream of happiness

 

Live a miserable life

Until you die

 

But hey

At least you’ve got

 

An average life

Love

Walking through a narrow alley

Towards a blinding light

Skipping all the other exits

Trying to end my sacrifice

 

But you always caught me when I fell

You always got me off the ground

You brought me back to life again

You are my true friend

 

You held me when the pain was too much

You smile when I’m here and laugh a little too

You gave me love when I had none

You are my true friend

 

While happiness was just a dream

And love a fatal flaw

You brought me to the light again

You taught me to love

Away

You get your hopes up

Time and time again

Only to watch them fall

 

You put a smile on your face

To hide the pain in your heart

But your armor is cracking

 

You dream sweet dreams

About a different life

But wake to find a world with no light

 

You think of ending it all

No one knows

So no one calls

 

They find you there holding your knife

A smile on your face

The end of your life

 

If they had seen what was going on

Do you think they would have tried

To save your life?

 

Heartbreak leads to fallout

Which leads to the ultimate end

The hurt of life brings you down again

 

Time shows your fate

If only they had loved you

Before you slipped away

Alone

She sat alone

The lake rippled

As winds blew

Sending shivers

Down her back

 

Her mind refused

To sit still

As tormented thoughts

Threatened to consume

Her last hiding place

 

Her heart was breaking

Bandages not holding

She can’t find

Anything worth

Fighting for anymore

 

Her body so numb

That pain was all

She felt now

The silver blade

Her constant friend

 

The edge came closer

Day by day

As sadness killed

Her last ray

Of life-giving faith

 

She withdrew

From all she knew

And refused to admit

She was not okay
