Dreams Of Speech

Fri, Mar 9, 2012 at 12:19 PM By: Maiden of Malice

Today the cotton white clouds parted only for you,
Sent to unveil swirled grey heavens
And pour darkness
Into your fragmented soul.
The gentle rain turned to hellacious storms,
As if the gods were spitting
Only unto you
In their disgust,
Crying violent oceans to show their pain and frustration.

Today you died a little more
And lived a little less.
You have words to speak
And love to spare,
Yet anxiety rips the throat
And bleeds your emotion.
Black ice on your overflowing heart
And hurricanes in your mind.
Fingerprints to leave
And footsteps to run inside.
So much to teach,
But no student to care:
You are employed only by Future
And thrive off of pointless Hope.

You are music without sound,
Songs without words,
Bass without purpose
And pregnant with twins:
Melody and Harmony.
You are a speech without a speaker,
A pencil without lead,
A blanket without warmth.
And a spirit underfed.
Ragged wrists and razor blades,
The remnants of self-infliction
Still cling to your flesh,
Wanting to be seen
But too afraid to bleed again.
Drip may have drop,
And tick may have tock,
But solitude is your only companion.
Perhaps
If your words cannot live,
Shedding cuts will speak for you.
Muted voice,
But you do have choice:
Stab your guard to kill,
The way you stab yourself,
Or kill thineself
And allow the scars
The liberation they obsessively crave.
If healing is not the wish,
Let death be your savior.
If yourself you can’t find,
Steal your selfish neighbor.
One way or another
They will know who you are,
Though maybe not in your entirety.
But bear in mind, child,
That truth does not lie:
Even tainted evidence
Must peek through the blinds
