stardust

I was wrong, I am sorry. I looked for someone who could help me escape people, give me affection and give me love with you, but I guess truly, we never would’ve worked out. we weren’t the constellation I thought we were, the affection clouded my vision, it made me see rainbows and sunshine when there was only smoke and broken promises. you were but a fading star in my galaxy that was ever improving, but it got caught up on you and stopped advances. I’m sorry I couldn’t improve your galaxy, I’m sorry I’m a living star to your galaxy while you’re a dead star, long finished, in mine

corporeality

am i a figment in your life

like i am in my own?

corporeality is

something i’ve struggled with.

is that picture actually moving,

or am i just seeing the swirls come to life like

the eyes of her painter did all those years ago?

am i more than just essence

floating through time and space,

happening to crowd into

your life and your time?

am i corporeal or am i just

particles of emotion?

am i an emotion in a larger being’s mind,

the commander in chief of the serotonin production line

in a person who can’t remember the meaning

of life, of death, of love and hate?

the disconnect of memory diffuses within me

like ink into water.

the disconnect of living and being alive,

or of corporeality and spirituality

am i real or is this a dream?

is this life real or am i a subcharacter in someone else’s dreams?

imaginary

we make up stories and people in our heads

as young children. we do this

because we are developing

a mind of our own.

we imagine a better life with a better job and

a better house, better shoes on better roads,

when we grow up.

but

i’ve grown up

and instead of make believe friends

and unicorns,

it feels as though the imaginary character is

me.

i feel like i have made myself up.

to fit standards, or be this person everyone wants,

and it isn’t meant badly, i don’t think,

i just don’t have the car, the wife, the house.

all i’ve got is me, and i feel imaginary;

just an entity gliding through

the same routines:

wake up, go to classes, come home, repeat

repeat

repeat.

i don’t feel human so much as robotic,

i don’t feel human so much as a spirit,

i don’t feel human

i don’t feel human

i don’t feel human

so much as a being with no form,

standardizing themselves for the

sake of people that don’t notice they exist.

descend

you tell me goodnight and say that you’ll stay,

i tell you it’s fine, don’t go out of your way.

you kiss my forehead and down my neck,

i brace for the morning when there’s not a speck of you left in this bed.

but you’re kissing my chest now and it feels so nice

to be loved, to be touched, but it’s just a slice

of the attention i need, i crave, from you,

and now my sheets aren’t the only things blue;

your lips on my hips, my hands in your hair,

fuck, darling, i know that you won’t be there

in the morning, i need you, i love you, i do,

please, baby, just one night, one more, with you.

you’re kissing my thighs, my knees, my feet,

it tickles but i’m aching, your love a constant beat in my heart, in my head,

but i’m wishing i’d said

that i loved you, needed you, for more than this,

that i love you, i need you, for more than this bliss.

you come back up and kiss my lips;

a gentle declaration, and my stomach flips.

you lay down beside me and pull me in close,

tell me you won’t leave me, but it feels so morose.

when i wake, youll be gone, and i’ll be okay,

but one day i hope that you’ll actually stay.

ascend

i don’t want your sympathy,

i want your hands on my body,

your lips on my skin.

i want your voice in my ears,

your breath on my neck.

come over,

come make me fly,

make me forget the worries that plague

my damaged goods mind.

make me feel

like i’m the only one,

like i’m your only one,

even though i’m not.

elevate me.

make me ascend

out of this plane and into the next.

help me out of this body,

out of this soul,

come with me to the stars.

hold me close,

press your body to mine,

chest to chest and legs to legs,

hips to hips and mouth to mouth,

touch me, dear,

love me,

kiss me,

cover me in your lipstick, in your scent,

in your love or in your passion, in your affection or in your desperation, i don’t care,

just need me like i need you.

to the horseman i have yet to meet

dear death,

when my time arrives,

let it be quick.

i don’t want the suffering,

or the tears,

or the please don’t go’s.

i will already be terrified, saddened,

so take me gently,

caress my cheek,

hold my hand to the journey into afterlife

or tell me it will be okay if there is not one.

i have tried meeting you before,

but i never succeeded.

our time will come one day,

which i hope is in a very long time now.

thank you for not coming for me

when i was inducing myself

to a life (or lack there of) i was not prepared for.

i understand it is your job.

i understand you must do this.

but for me,

make it painless,

fearless,

gentle and calm.

let my loved ones cry,

though not in sorrow,

but in joy that i can live a better life in the great beyond.

no one ever asks you about the job,

so perhaps you could enlighten me on the trip?

i would love to know,

tell me your stories,

your guilt, or whatever it is you feel,

tell me everything.

i am your vessel when the fated day arrives,

fill my body accordingly

and, too, let my bedside roses die.

depression, deuxième partie

my room is a mess,

my hair is not brushed,

my body aches with

the person that i could be,

the person that i should be.

i’m barely out of being a teenager,

i should not hurt so much,

but my heart beats too fast, too slow,

and my brain has turned to tv static mush.

yes, i napped at 2 pm,

what’s it all to you?

i went to work,

i did my job,

i came home.

my body begs to stay in bed,

but i fight those urges,

though feeling i’m better off dead.

so what if i nap?

i need my rest.

i can’t sleep at night no more,

it’s been long since i’ve been that blessed.

this isn’t the anemia

my doctor prescribed,

this is depression,

under he i hide.

no one will listen!

this isn’t my blood!

my brain has been decaying

since i was but a wee child.

i have issues piled on issues,

walls built on walls,

i don’t need an iron tablet,

i need an iron wall.

i need a therapist,

i need physical help,

can’t you see i’m falling to shreds?

hasn’t it been obvious from the start?

depression

i feel my energy draining,

like lava from a volcano.

it began to flow this morning,

out of my brain,

down my ashy, blackened rocks,

burning and heavy,

oozing so slowly that i could easily catch it

if i could.

i could catch it if my bucket

didn’t have holes.

i could catch it

if i could get out of bed.

but it oozes,

slimes it’s way out,

globbing itself into clumps

that hurt to bypass.

my will to continue

oozes with it.

my body is shutting down,

but not really,

it’s working harder to keep me

a well working machine

in this corporate world.

nobody wants a machine with no juice,

but that’s what i’ve been granted

for all of my life.

the world is running windows 10,

i am running.

but i can’t catch up.

my body tries and tries to work,

tries so hard to keep me in stasis,

but good someone,

i am exhausted.

stasis is exhausting when you can’t be static

because stasis leaves you on edge,

but you can’t be mobile

because you’re too exhausted to breathe.

my body is a decaying machine

and the mechanic moved twelve states away.

i lost my charger,

the cord’s broke anyways,

i’m stuck in hibernation mode

and no ctrl alt del can fix this.

i’m due for an upgrade,

but there’s nothing new to buy.

my motherboard is failing,

but don’t tell me goodbye.

death

i used to try

every night

to meet someone new

meet someone with a dark coat

hood pulled over eyes, over face,

holding a weapon as tall as he.

i would try

every night

because he was the one i knew

would not leave me.

he was the one

i could trust.

he was the one

i was not scared of.

he was the one

i craved.

not my girlfriend,

not my friends,

only him, only the one just out of grasp.

i’m scared of him now,

but i feel that it might be like

meeting an old friend, or

perhaps,

feeling alive again.

i’m terrified,

despite all that,

despite the scarred over memories of a

best friend that i never met.

i don’t want to die,

but he’s the only man i’ve ever trusted.

i don’t want to die,

but he’s the one thing that’s always there.

i don’t want to die,

but, someone save me,

i miss my friend.

my fall

gold.

white.

shimmer.

pearlescent gates, flowing clouds.

heaven.

is that me?

oh, i suppose it is!

white robes, interesting choice.

is that-is that god?

why is he-i thought it was just angels who-

i’m dead? okay, cool, what’s god do-why is he smiling?

why am i still moving towards him-what’s going on?

and

and hounds with three heads

and

lava

and fire

and

no one

i’m alone

there’s screaming and swearing

but i’m alone

i’m naked

i’m crying

i’m alone

i’m hurting

i need my mom

i need my dad

where is everyone

why am i ALONE

why didn’t god want me

why did he do that

how could he do that

how dare he do that

i was a good human

i lived my whole FUCKING life

trying to be good

i lived in FEAR of this EXACT MOMENT

how DARE he do this to me

he’s supposed to love

he’s supposed to care

what about ME?

i didn’t get it on earth,

why should i in death, right?

what did i DO to be SO undeserving?

dammit,

god damn it all,

can’t even die correctly,

no,

i’m turning into one of them,

i’m sorry god,

i’m sorry i was never enough,

i’m sorry i’m the way i am,

i’m sorry i sinned

and took your name in vein

and loved women

and was not a cis woman

and was never a good catholic

or a good sister

or daughter

or anything

i’m sorry i didn’t live up to how you wanted

i’m sorry i couldn’t be what you wanted

i’m sorry i couldn’t believe in you as well as i should’ve

i’m sorry i can’t be there with you now

i’m sorry i couldn’t deal with the things you threw at me

i’m sorry i fucked up the great plan for me

i’m praying from hell,

a new low for you, right?

maybe not

i’m sorry i’m turning into someone that you despise

i’m sorry that i cant withstand this temptation

it hurts

so bad

but it feels so good

to be wanted.

it feels so good to

have someone who wants you.

it hurts

it burns

it stings

my blood is going sulphur

and it is screaming

every inch of me is screaming in agony

but oh, does it feel good to be wanted.

i hate every single second of this

i do not want to be here

i do not want to be a minion of lucifer

i do not.

i’m trying so hard to resist

so hard

please come get me

the trial is almost up

it’s so close

please

i don’t want this

i’m sorry

it hurts

please love me

please love me

i’m sorry

i’m s
