Wistful Poet

Walls thousands of feet tall built by you,


bricks of mistrust and hurt,


protect you from the outside,


like mother's embracing arms,


you will hurt no more.


Your walls are hard to break,


industructible and heavily foritfied,


you refuse to let anyone in,


afraid to become close and hurt again,


you hide behind them like a wounded animal,


do youwonder why you are so alone?


But i thought i heard your walls crumble when i reached out a

and took your handnd took your hand.


"If you are faced with a dissappointment or a bad situation ask, will it matter in 10 years?

"Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends.

There is a secret song at the center of the world, Joey, and its sound is like razors through flesh."


"I don't believe you."


"Oh come, you can hear its faint echo right now. I'm here to turn up the volume.

To press the stinking face of humanity into the dark blood of its own secret heart."

"There's a starving beast inside my chest
playing with me until he's bored
Then, slowly burying his tusks in my flesh
crawling his way out he rips open old wounds

When I reach for the knife placed on the bedside table
its blade reflects my determined face
to plant it in my chest
and carve a hole so deep it snaps my veins

Hollow me out, I want to feel empty"
-- "Being Able To Feel Nothing" by Oathbreaker


"Sky turns to a deeper grey

the sun fades by the moon

hell's come from the distant hills

tortures dreams of the doomed

and they pray, yet they prey

and they pray, still they prey"
-- "Still They Prey" by Cough

i liked your imagery and feel you did a better job than most articulating your vibe. morose and cold. i think of a poem i wrote called "Neglected". as a reader you have evoked from me sullen and languishing emotions.
