Fog
The perfect metaphor
For life
Love
Hope
Mind
Why you ask
Well
Fog has this tendency
A tendancy to block out
To float across
And separate something from
Everything around it
To close in
And cloud up
To take away
The perspective we need
To live a healthy life
Fog can be many things
But it most commonly manifests itself as a person
A person who is in your life
Taking away your perspective
Someone who
Gives you fasle hope
Only to crush you into nothing
Someone who
Clouds your judgement
Makes you feel different
Maybe they take your beautiful mind
And twist it into something evil
And last of all
This person
This metaphor of a person
This fog
Can tell you the biggest lie of all
This person you trust the most
Can make you feel
Unloved
Unwanted
Unappreciated
Which will take your strong heart
And break it
Into small shards of glass
Until you wish you were never here
Because who would want to live
Where you'll never belong.

Note: this is my second entry into @brandontpoet 's contest, a letter to a toxic person.
The work of art I'm choosing is once again from a tøp song. "Tie a noose around your mind, loose enough to breath fine and tie it to a tree tell it 'you belong to me, this ain't a noose this is a leash and I got news for you you must obey me'." I am choosing this because it reminds me how I am in control of my thoughts and it gives me the power to go on.

Desolation
Absolute nothingness
No where to go
No where to be
We walk back and forth
Worthlessness is all we see
We chase it
Like treasure
Like its not meaningless
They say that the taklimikan is the worlds most barren wasteland
But I believe that the worlds mast barren wasteland
Is really just my soul

Your words
Fall off your lips
They trickle down like a light drizzle
A refreshing rain after a long drought
Your words
Sting like nettles
They poke and prod like needles
A thousand bees attacking all at once
Your words
Bring peace inside me
They calm the storm in my soul
They cradle my heart
Your words
Make my soul dance
They make my heart leap for the skies
I'm never coming down from the stars above
Your words
Murder me
In all the ways I fear
They tear me down
Rip me apart
Limb by aching limb
Muscle by muscle
Heart and soul shredded
Your words
Are the words of hope
But also of death
Your words
I love you.

Notes: I'm excited to enter into this contest! It'll be my first one I've done yet. One of my favourite pieces of writing is part of a tøp song. "Sometimes to stay alive you gotta kill your mind." I chose it because it describes me and how I feel in life. Sometimes to keep going I just can't think at all.

We can
We are strong
We are independent
We are loved
We love others
We spread our wings and fly over the earth
We are warriors
We are beautiful
We have meaning
We are significant
Our opinions have effect
What we say matters
What we do matters
We matter
You matter
So act like it

Notes: I've been struggling with self worth and I know I'm not the only one. So this is in honour of anyone struggling with depression and or anything else going on in your beautiful lives. You matter. We can.

You fell
Down to earth
You rose from the ground
Out of the hole you had made
You tread the land
An image of grace and beauty
Your footsteps leaving gentle prints through the flowers
You dominated all
Conquered the world and all you fears
You go down in history as the great one
The wise one
But in the end
The dust you rose from
Is the dust you will soon become

Notes: hi guys I'm super knew at poetry and I'm so grateful for all of you who follow me!

Hey
Look at you
Your famous now
How you've grown from the boy I once knew
To the man you are today
How different you have become
Youre taller now
But your egos grown more than your body has
I remember the kind boy you once were
And then I see you now
I guess things have changed
And i begin to think that maybe the good guys do always finish last

#INKTOBER day 07. My word prompt was "Death", so I immediately thought of @vonpoevii. When I first got put onto his music, back in 2011, he was going by the name Poetic Death. He's a super dope emcee, video director/editor, friend, and human being, and I got mad love for him. Go listen to his music and get familiar, if you don't know his name.

The water falls down
Over the waterfall
Plummeting to the earth below
Hundreds of gallons fall
Repeatedly everyday
They just keep falling
A never ending dance of never ending death
And like this water
We keep repeating what we have done
What we always will do
We fall in love only to be torn apart
Over and over again
Dancing with fate
Thinking maybe one day we'll break the cycle
But water never really runs upwards

The stars shine brightly in the heavens
Drifting aimlessly through space
We stare up in wonder at the lights above
Dreaming of the galaxies we could go
The very extent if the universe
Anywhere but here
We feel so small staring out
Into the great unknown
The lights reflecting in our eyes
The void pulling us into its grasp
It calls us sweetly
Its tender voice echoing through the trees
So we answer
We leave everything we knew behind
All we've ever loved
All we ever been
We take one last look at our earth below
And we plunge into the abyss

Letting go
Of the mere image of you
I hold back the floodgates
As I push you away
I love you so much
More than you could even comprehend
But I loved you too much
And I was afraid of you not loving me
So it was for your own good
To remove myself
But god it hurts
Like a million knifes digging into my skin
Ripping out my fragile heart
It won't ever heal
Even I know that
Broken hearts never heal
They only scar over.

The clouds thundered above
The seas crashed down on me
The rain relentless
And the wind unstoppable
I swam hard
Fighting the strong waves
Holding me down
Holding me back
I saw you
Above the waves
You looked down at me
Struggling beneath the storm
And you laughed
You were my only hope
My only reason to fight
I realized then the fight was pointless
If you weren't there for me
Beacause you were my fight
Your love was my entire being
So as you laughed
I stopped fighting
I gave up
And slowly sank beneath the surface.

I want to feel
I want to feel your arms around me
I want to feel the grass
I want to touch the flowers
And feel their soft petals
But more than I want to touch
I want my heart to feel
I want someone to come
And to crack open this rock inside my chest
I want the pieces to fall and hit the ground
So my heart may beat again

Running through this maze
This maze of death
I travel
Running but never moving
Unable to breathe but still alive
The breath stolen from my lungs
By your beautiful soul
That's so corrupted
Like a dying blossom
So beautiful
But so horrible at the same time
Horrifyingly beautiful
I was a life giver
A kind heart
I loved down into the depths of souls
You were a life taker
A soul reaper
And I was stupid enough to get close
So you reaped mine.

Silently I stand
Alone and unafraid
I gaze out across the chasm
Of death
Of abandonment
Of despair
And I take one last look at you
Your beautiful face
Your angelic features
But then I look into your hands
And I see
I see my bleeding heart in your hands
And I remember how you violently tore it from my chest
Then I turn
And I jump in.

A gray yet great Monday. Felt like i was living in an old black & white movie when i saw this little fella washed up ashore. Couldn't figure out how a fish could drown. Well i hope you've lead a great life,Fish. Sleepy sleep under the wave blanket now.

The world is drowning
In the thoughts of death
From all the people in the crowds
Talking just to speak
And all the times
We just want to fall down
And never get back up
The world is drowning
In the thoughts of people like you
Like me
The thoughts of running
And never coming back
The thoughts vain wishes
And the thoughts of betrayal
And empty promises
All the times we never felt free
All the times we wanted to leap
Outside of that plane
Into the great unknown
To fall through the stratosphere
To not feel the resistance
To fall so fast your floating
And time stands still
As you plummet to the earth

Take the sand
Throw it in my eyes
I don't want to see this anymore
I want to be blind
So I don't have to watch you die
I can't watch
I beat my soul
Until it is numb
I won't feel anymore
I won't have to feel the pain when you're gone
I won't have to miss the touch of your hand
Or the beating of your heart
I won't have to spend time wishing things were different
I won't have to hope anymore
I won't feel a single thing
And in the end I think it'll be better that way
Because sometimes feeling numb
Is better than feeling at all.
