Mislabeled and Misunderstood

By: TanTanTheLadiesManSeptember 24, 2014

People just don’t understand.  I’m living in a time where people don’t understand where I’m coming from.  I’ve been mislabeled, misrepresented, and misunderstood for such a long time and it wears at me a little.  At times, I feel persecuted because people have the wrong

The Child and the Washerwoman

By: AutumnMooncakesSeptember 23, 2014

In Scottish folklore, an ugly woman sits at streams or pools washing the clothes of people who are about to die. If a passing mortal asks politely, she will tell them who's been chosen by fate.

“Kind washerwoman, could you tell me who’s to die?”

If I Had Ever Known

By: Perpetually363September 14, 2014

If I had known, my dear father,

that I would never hear your voice again,

I would have held on to the phone so much more tightly

If I had known that would be

the last time I ever felt your hand squeezing mine,

I wouldn't have gotten up so

Miserable Man

By: WaffleloveSeptember 11, 2014

Looming above,

Blocking out the light.

Bent over me, spewing

Hot hate like foam.

 

Never never never

Good enough.

Unloved, unheard, unworthy.

There to always deny.

Use the rope in your closet;

When he screamed in my face.

I breathed it in,

By: WaffleloveSeptember 5, 2014

Empty.

All the rooms are empty

And silent.

Alone.

All by myself, all alone

With my cries. 

You.

You were supposed to

Guide me, but you don't.

Empty.

You sit in you chair with

That empty expression.

Unresponsive.

I scream, but you don't flinch

And the pills on the table just keep going...

Going...

I slam against your door.

I pound for

Exhausted

By: jedialonzaSeptember 5, 2014
  

“I’m exhausted from living up to your expectations of me.”

 

...Especially when they are unreasonable;

especially when I can’t

manage to live up to them,

not even to graze the bottom rung.

 

Where did they come from?

Where did you get the

Why am I the Only One Who Fights?

By: jedialonzaSeptember 5, 2014
Why am I the only one who fights

for peace?

No one else cares, so why

should I?

Why does it matter to me

if you leave or stay?

If you make up your mind to

go away?

 

Is it selfishness on my
