If I hang from a chandelier of ice,
Will the cold seep into my bloodstream first,
Like the harbinger of a frozen curse?

Be the harbinger of my life’s eclipse?
Gazing up at the chandelier of ice,
Perhaps today, I will only
Admire how it twinkles so magnificently.

Can you hear me
All the words I cannot speak
Behind a strained smile sewed on
Like a porcelain doll.
Can you hear me
The muffled sobs in a corner
Because my tears would only
Burn them like acid rain. Continue reading “[Poetry] Are You Listening?”
You were fire,
Your flames lashing out,
Reveling in the shrieks and shouts.
I was darkness,

A pulsing black hole,
Feeding on the flickers of my soul.

And are too scared to once again start. Continue reading “[Poetry] Ingredients To My Poetry”
