TRUST IS AN ASSHOLE

Trust is an asshole It whispers soft Billowing clouds Of pure white lies Then grabs your Fragile little neck And squeezes The life from you As it laughs At your naivety And just before Your eyes close Just before Shadows fold He lets you Breathe again He says With his Asshole smile I’m sorry I’ll…

EVIL GHOSTS

Fading pictures Filled with ghosts Cracks Over faces Folding shadows Erasing time I can’t remember The hunger How it felt Or the pain How it hurt The faces smiling With eyes Full Of broken glass Shanks Sharpened And waiting For my future self To reminisce Before going in For the kill

CREATING MADNESS

Kicked at the corners of eyes Blind spots creating madness Their names cross hearts Like razors cutting the throats Of hand holding paper dolls Spending time spinning wild Cradling tendencies focused On the abscesses in their minds They holds the answers, hon If you like all your answers spun They’ll weave sorrowful stories Drawing an…

NOT YOURS

Lindsay sent me a verse over a week ago out of the blue and this happened. NOT YOURS by Lindsay and Hastywords Target Is who I am not For your torment and abuse Slander and Lies Have sucked me dry Every mirror reflects black Since I let you into my head Darkened by your moods…

GARDEN OF STONES

Rows and rows of broken hearts Laid to waste in a garden of stones Flowers disguise the nature of sadness That torture the hearts of the compost remains Crowing birds hide the sounds Of their aching pains Moans from sorrow’s catacombs Like a symphonic maze they echo From the deepest down below Departing from this…

GO FLY A METAPHORICAL KITE

I also know there are some beautiful and…

I AM A KILLER

I love this story about the flexibility of the human spirit. It’s much more than that though. It’s about making choices. It’s about choosing to continue the cycle of abuse, or choosing instead to become a champion for love. A lot of people raised with violence commit violent crimes themselves. They often end up going…

SORRY, MAN

Much like my anonymous guest yesterday, my guest today still has very strong feelings about the bullies from his youth.  Matthew Krause is very honest in this post and I think maybe he doesn’t realize the STRENGTH and POWER that he wields by choosing peace over violence. You can find more from Matt at StorytellerMatt.…

BULLIED UNTIL BROKEN

The person who wrote this post wanted to remain anonymous; feelings like this are not easy to own.  This post is as emotionally raw as you will read in my series this month.  It is a testimony of how bullying can have a long-term effect on a person.  I should also point out that this…

BULLY DAYS

Just sit here long enough And the pain will dissolve The thoughts that taunt Will somehow subside, devolve Right? God, grant me serenity Or tape my mouth shut My anxiety is peeking It’s ready to explode Full force into action Pulled rings Grenade skies And I become The very thing I despise   ~Reposted from…
