Instead of spitting

Your uneducated venom,

Open your mind

And absorb the facts.

Use your eyes to focus

On what lies beneath.

Shield your soul,

From the toxic waste

Spilling from their every pore.

Be wise,

Be strong, 


Be in control of you.

Monster Inside

Do you see the monster inside?

Hiding away,

Eating my soul,

Erupting blood,

Playing with my emotions,

Causing havoc with my life.

Do you see the monster inside?

Lurking behind my eyes,

Roaming free,

No chemicals can hold,

Holding its reign over my brain.

Do you see the monster inside?

The True Colour of Darkness

What do you do when all is lost?

The swirling vortex,

A blur in the mind.

Flashing images,

Random words.

Memories repeating,

Consequences catastrophic.

When will it all end?

Wanting a break,

Freedom from the mind,

A sharp gash.

Untied from the chains,

From the excessive emotions.

The faking can commence,

Fooling everyone.

Happy animated expression,

With the true colour of darkness,

Burning inside,

Waiting to escape.

Webs Woven

Whispering splintered tongue,

Shattering silence and peace.

Water flows to the rim,

Strength and force holds its place.

Another bittered whisper

And the water overflows,

Down the newly formed stream.

Free to fall,

To land with grace.

Free to leave a mark

And it’s presence known. 

Free to be

And not changed,

Molded into something new,

Something useful,


Anything but the starting piece.

Laid to rest where it wishes

And nothing said,

No moving spies.

Webs woven,

They never end.

What was the beginning?

What will be the end?

Language Unknown 

Drifting through the waves,

The sky moving above me,

Trees whispering to one another.

I rock gently as I arrive ashore,

Dry mouthed,

Blistered lips,

Cracked skin.

I fade to white,

Soothed by the water.

My ears prick up,

My flesh is covered in clouds,

Floating towards the warmth.

Gravity lays me down.

Heavy pile of rocks,

My body solidifies.

Wetness around my mouth,

My tounge soaks it up.

Language unknown comforts my soul.

Peace descends upon me and again,

I am drifting through the waves.

Are You Near?

You are blurred in my mind.

A fleeting shadow,

With a warming presence.

In my dreams your lips move

But your voice is lost,

Trapped in the far corner

Of a cluttered mind. 

Are you near?

The burden weighs me down. 

Knowing that memories will be replaced,

Shatters my already fragile heart. 

Come back to my dreams,

No need for words.

Just hold me tight

Until another new day begins.
