ativan boy, you cannot empty out this skull -
not with a pen nor with a bullet. you can
be my hallowed head(case) for spitting out
words like teeth; oh, but i will only love you
when you're weary. i will keep crows caged
between your lungs like veins, like palpitations.
i will rot you through bones & car radios,
but i will never get (you) out of your skin.
full title: i only love the mayhem, baby; i am made of nights like these

whoops, i went almost two weeks without writing and came back with this sub-par stuff. sorry.

Fantastic imagery in this. In fact, fantastic imagery in all your pieces. You bring visuals so clearly and sharply to the mind with your words. It's amazing.

That's kind of a personal one for me, and I'm actually very glad someone else can relate to or at least understand it. Thank you.

I really, really appreciate this - again, thank you.

I write about things that happen to me and what I'm feeling for the most part. I also draw inspiration from movies and music and other kinds of art like photography and paintings. I always write to music, that kind of helps me focus. Hope that helps a bit! :)
