[Sleep]The shiny laptop sighs
as it flickers off
snapping to sleep.
The orange sun drops
behind dark mountains
as cars zoom by.
The mower silences
the chirping crickets
as it slices through the grass.
To Be IndifferentStrength only an illusion
Of the emotions I burden,
Irrational. Illogical. Complicated.
Best to ignore such rubbish.
Emotions should be controlled
Not roam through the body like fire.
Opposite of emotion is indifference.
Don’t dwell on petty matters.
Pointless. Useless. Worthless.
Best to ignore such stupidity.
Only the weak let their emotions run a muck.
Indifference leads to being content.
Control. Ignore. Content.
Self-annihilationKill this girl inside of me
All she does is bring me pain
Crying over every stupidest thing.
She’s weak, fragile beyond repair.
Strangle her. Smother her. Make her disappear!
A burden that’s tearing up my heart.
Raiding my mind with selfish desires
That are nearly impossible for me to obtain.
She’s blocking my path to change.
Stab her, stick her into the heart
Quick death with the blood she bleeds
Loosens the hold allowing me to breathe.
Strike her down. Bury her far below
Where she’ll never escape back into my soul!
I hate her for the pain she brings
Destroy this selfishly emotional girl inside of me!
I'm a CatI am a cat, and I’m hungry
I will sit here meowing for food.
Feed me and I’ll stop meowing
But you refuse me my food, how rude!
I am a cat and I’m sleepy
I will lay on your bed
I love to curl up on the pillows
But you stole them so I’ll sleep on your head
I am a cat and I’m bored
I will catch me a mouse to play
I bash it, claw it, and bite it
But you yell and throw my mouse away!
I am a cat and I’m mad
I will slap and let out a hiss
Leave me be. I want to be alone
But I will return, it’s you I miss
I am a cat and I’m lonely
I will bother you until you pet me
Run your hands over my silky fur
But it’s my purr that distracts you from being busy
I am a cat and I’m happy
You are my human, and this is my home
My human still needs taming
But I’m grateful for the love you’ve shown.
Princess and BlacksmithTrapped in the castle she watches below
At the freedom of the peasants entering in and out
Oh the life they must live; How splendid it must be!
No commands nor guards, they can go wherever they please!
She wishes to live among the commoners, to marry a decent man
Not these princes who hide behind their riches to get what they need.
Being worked to the bone, he hammers his days away
A moment of rest he glances bitterly at the castle above
Oh the life they must have; Must be splendid to live in royalty
No laws nor chores to obey, they live in luxury
He longs to live upon the castle grounds, surround himself in riches,
Never to worry about the pain of live he’s forced to see
From the castle to the streets, their eyes meet
Envy with desire flaws through their hearts
How the golden-dress princess lives the life I dreamed?
How come the noble blacksmith lives the days freed?
They beg to live in the world of the other
Not seeing through each other’s eyes, the hardships wouldn
Blow AwayYou’re dust in the wind; blow away
The elephant on the camel has your sanity
I hear your ill ramblings screeching on the blackboard
I hate seeing your words yell at me
Aphrodite threw you out of Olympus for a reason
I wish you would blow away
No, stand up to me unlike the coward you smell like
You Idjet, don’t shake like a leaf after getting caught in your hate
Throwing the first punch only makes you land on your ass
Com’ on now, dontcha keepin’ waitin'!
The ignorant camel of hypocrisy is applauding you!
The sun incinerates the lies that you’re hiding behind your back
Don’t you know Kathy sees through your facade?
Why are going to lie again?
The elephant on the camel is sick of your bitter chocolate
Your sanity agrees with me.
You’re dust in the wind that’s blowing away
'Friends'Let’s be fake liars
Create a persona others will admire.
Pretending to be everyone’s friend
With cross-fingered promises to the end.
When we don’t get our daily praise
We’ll make them see their error ways.
Steal their trust with poisoned words
Of love they always heard.
Listen to their problems with pity.
When their secrets spill we’ll be ready
To file them away for future use.
Convince the world that they abuse
Us. Reveal how horrible they're flawed
So the world can’t see through our façade.
Faking and lying makes us empowered
Hiding the fact, we’re pathetic cowards.
