Don’t ask.

May 4th, 2015by cephalus

Don’t ask me how I am.
I don’t know
How could I?
I just am.

Don’t ask me what to do.
If you don’t know
How could I?
You just are.

Don’t ask me why.
None of us know
How could I?
We just are.

Palindrome day

May 1st, 2015by cephalus

Its May 1st 2015, or 5-1-15 (5115).

And so, a palindromic poem:

Baited Breath
Exhale no inhale
Bag over head
I didn’t understand
Questions thoughts, unaddressed
Fear bubbles, darkness decays
Blackness surrounding
Pain in extremities
Gasping controlled
Everything means nothing
Life, abated
——
Abated life
Nothing means everything
Controlled gasping
Extremities in pain …

Yeah….

I’m down to just one thing
And I’m starting to scare myself

Two Dreams

April 29th, 2015by loquism

1

I tried half a teaspoon of Pentobarbital with lemonade today. At first I wondered why it wasn’t working. Then I stood up and I couldn’t walk straight so I got into bed. I woke up 17 hours later (I fell out of bed a couple of times) and I was hungry so I got something to eat. I was still heavily intoxicated and drowsy so I went back to bed.

I dreamed that I lived in a city enclosed by platinum panels forming …

Sharp Edges

April 28th, 2015by QuirkyFox

I need the edge of insanity, to know I’m not crazy.

I want to share the darkest parts of me, be heard and understood.

I crave my death, but will fight for last breaths.

Inside I’m dead, I died when you left.

I can only see my beauty, inside empty hearts.

I need to suffer for my pleasure, I want to suffer for my art.

Are you the one to take me there? Come play loves darkest game.

Mark me with dark bruises, in time they’ll fade away.

Watch me through your windows, while im

Nostalgia: azul e doce

April 28th, 2015by Tristeza

Mid 2013
I remember my first post on sp, one that I felt like I had to delete months ago. I was hiding in my room, scared because my ex step dad had tried to touch me again. He was a monster. A rapist. A demon wearing the mask of a good, loving religious man. My mom had already made it clear that she would stay with him and that I was the only liar at their house; calling me the devil and trying to kick me out when I had nowhere to go. My story is too long and not the point right now, but …

For a pessimist, I’m quite optimistic

April 26th, 2015by cold_blooded_freak

It’s been about three or four years since I’ve last posted something and in that time I’ve graduated high school, joined the military, got married and subsequently divorced, moved on in my life. I’ve done so many things that I didn’t think I would. So if you think your story ends here, you may be missing out on the best moments that have yet to happen.

A thought

April 26th, 2015by cephalus

Mistakes that haunt you
Not the ones, others expect
You wish they would
But you are alone
Just regret

Sick of girls wanting you
Sick of being alone
Sick of being amazing
Sick of being dull

With you, Primal.
With you, Final.
With you, I thought.

K, have you been waiting?

April 24th, 2015by Tristeza

Uma multidão de corações acelerados
E uma paisagem que mais parece uma pintura de Van Gogh
Em câmera rápida — vamos, vamos a todo o vapor.
Ela encobre a cidade com seu manto azul e cinza;
Beijo cerúleo.
Eu senti tua falta hoje
E ainda sinto
Eu bem que queria estar aí no aconchego teu,
Menino louro
Dos olhos bonitos feitos de pérolas negras.
.
Mas eu calo a boca. Não vou falar…
Quem sou eu pra falar?
Quem sou eu?
.

It slips from me.

April 24th, 2015by cephalus

Your line, cast in the water. You feel the tugs, its like you caught something.
Something you wont let go. Only, at the same time, it pulls you in, under. You
don’t even notice.

Somehow you are both breathing, alive in each others worlds. Both cast, both reeled in.

Both caught.

One day, the line snaps. You find yourself shivering, wet, on the shore. You
try to go back, your lungs fill with water. Gasping for air, choking. You
strive, you push on. Darkness surrounds. Red appears in your peripheral.

You see a glimmer in the murkiness. You reach out. They dart away.

Still you stay.

You don’t need air, not anymore. You float at …

Meadow

April 24th, 2015by cephalus

Tall, proud flowers project
Plucked one by one
Until I am all that is left
No competition for sun
Instead of basking and having fun
I shrink down to the size of a thumb
For I made the other plants feel dumb

Sorrow

April 20th, 2015by JustReallySad

You think you’re miserable? You can’t even fathom my misery. You remember every bad thing I ever did to you. How quickly you forget. The things you said and did to me. You know, we could spare each other all this pain.

I know I can change, how about you? Can you spare me all your fucking lies! And all I ask is to talk to you again. But you don’t seem to want to. I wish I could take a walk with you. I would show you all my pain. You took everything I had from me. I can’t wait…to get away.

Will it help?

Probably not. …

Watching the Time

April 20th, 2015by darkandroid

Time ticks, the clock stops,

everything is coming down to less then an hour.

Soon it will chime,

pulse beating,

as I prepare the end once and for all.

Madness circling,

Head tilting,

Eyes wide, making sense of nothing.

Chilled laughter,

widened smile,

The mirror will show no one.

Heart throbbing,

Teeth clenching,

Pupils darting endlessly.

Hands holding,

an old stopwatch,

waiting for the final blow.

Seconds ticking,

Minutes passing,

Everything will hault.

Water dripping,

Sink filling,

All on the bathroom floor.

-Splash!-

Clouds

April 20th, 2015by cephalus

Set to the music “The Fool on the Hill.”

I have become the clouds. No feelings, just expression. They only appreciate in passing. A compliment here, a compliment there, their heads turn back, to the ground. Beautiful, for those that look. But I am not beautiful, its just a point of view. Clouds at night, hidden from everyone. Unable to see no matter how hard you strain. Sadness, happiness, productive. Irrelevant. No one understands the work that goes into forming me. The sun, creating a phase transition of water, condensing back down… I form rain, snow, thunder. Some hate, others love. Emotionless either way. Some fly …

Goodbye.

April 20th, 2015by darkandroid

Goodbye, Goodbye,

Tonight I die.

Today, Today

I’ll go away.

Tomorrow, Tomorrow,

Will be full of sorrow.

Goodbye, Goodbye,

I shall not cry.

This world is boring , boring world . why movies, games, anime/manga, fantasy / imagination is better than this world / better than life / real life / real world / reality ?

April 20th, 2015by niki

I hate this world .
This world is so boring , boring world !
Why movies , games , anime / manga, & fantasy / imagination is better than this world / better than life / real life / real world / reality ?

everyday life is the same : wake up, eat, go to school/work, boring, then go back home, eat, then sleep, then repeat again.
but movie / game / anime / manga / comics / books are much more exciting & interesting than this boring life !
for example: like in the world / universe of Harry Potter, Avatar, Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Marvel / …

Surrounded

April 19th, 2015by darkandroid

Can’t look

Can’t breathe

When all of them are surrounding me

Evil creatures

Strange and vile

This life may not be worthwhile

All around

Always there

Their sight is something I can’t bare

Even when

I see my reflection

I wish I could avert my attention

A delusion

I want to believe

It is all a sick illusion.

 

I am not them.

They don’t exist;…

Perhaps

April 19th, 2015by cephalus

I feel worthless, but I am not.
I feel ugly, but I am not.

I helped her heal, but I did not.
She found another, but I did not.

She lied, I never will.
She abandoned me;
Perhaps , I will.

Grey Skies Tell Lies; 20/20 Vision

I met a lot of great people here on SP. Some unsavory ones as well. But, I’m focusing on the good! Life can be tough. But find something that motivates you and use it. I will take my ideas and personality elsewhere. Anybody who wants to keep in touch with me, comment your email. You guys are great! Stay above the shit storm! Kudos.

Stay beautiful,

Kills
