We Know BetterAn empty smile, a crooked joke, and we're back on broken ground. Distant whispers plan to drive the blade home deep. With violent hope that a twist and shout will deliver them bloody comedy. In their shadows, and deep in their eyes, they wear the guise of trust.We know better, don't we? Yes, we know better.Go back to your other home, of wasted bone. Go back to grey skies and skeleton land. Cast your sickened gaze on other grounds. We will smile bright when you depart. Our bounty will not be shared with those of such obvious hate.We know better, don't we? Yes, we know better.Perhaps if you talked, perhaps if you were open. Maybe made of something true. But if wishes were horses, then you'd trample us underhoof. If looks were daggers, we'd be dead in our seats. And if it's the thought that counts, then you'd count thrice more. Your
Take HeartDrag the lake and take the lootI got a plan that'll sound so cuteYou caught my eye, and hold it stillI'll make a try, and run uphillYou're so bright and shiny highI'm as low as an earthworm's cryYou dance to a song, a song so sweetMy thoughts turn sour as rancid meatOh no, oh my, these tears stream byIn frozen lines, the end is nighI look to you, so true and newI lay me down, from toes to crownI tumble downhill to a steady descentYou won't bother to notice to where I wentSo take heart and take noteAnd be ready a quoteFor those of us who are about to die.
Keep SmilingThe mask is tight, and I'm choking on the words not said. They can get as close as they want, but they'll never be near me. Worlds apart, and that's fine with me. Keep your damn hands to yourself.Don't pay any mind to the empty light in my eyes. I've got your number, and you've got one of mine. From the very start, I knew how it would end. I win everytime, and the points don't matter.Don't try to push me, cuz I won't pretend to care. Fast words on a slow night, and you won't keep up with me. I show my teeth, and you show me yours.
Biological ResponseThere are at least 6 billion people in the world that we would like to study. Dissect them. Gather them in a room and see how they interact. For the good of science, we would subject them to horrific experiments to better understand our own humanity.We look forward to cutting you open.What are calculations to a fractured mind? If I told you I love you, I'd only be saying it to guage your retinal response. The beat of your has heart accelerated to nominal conditions. The conditions being that we can now cut it out and transplant it into the body of someone better than you'll ever be.Oh the things we will learn when we put you in a cage!I am a scientist, and I have a Ph.D specializing in not caring about your pain. I'll put your soul under a microscope. I'll put your self-resepect in a petrie dish. We would like to take samples of everything that you are, and see if we can grow them in
She Is.She is behind my eyes.Her name is at the end of every sentence.A scent on my mind.An answer in front of my face.She would be an obvious mistake, and I would be a fool not to make.I obsessively ignore the thought of her.I lose everytime she smiles.She is a song I can't stop hearing.A sunbeam in the moonlight.I grit my teeth when she's gone.She is gentle and strong.She is a soft breeze on a harsh day.I have so many questions, and she has an answer.I want to see my reflection in her eyes.I'm not good enough for her, but then again, nobody is.She is the reason, and I am all excuses.She is human.She is loved.She is more than enough.
BileFriendship not worth spitting on.A vicious smile to hide contempt.Your eyes glitter with apathy.Thank god I don't love you.Smash my face with nothing.Drown me with harsh silence.Burn my skin under empty sky.I'm lucky we're not even enemies.Run to the other side of my heart.A cold chill in the bottom of my stomach.Limp smoke fills my empty lungs.I gladly sneer at your memory.You fell so damn far.How could you fail me?Two faces, but you wear them well.I didn't even get to put you on a pedastal.You turn away.I couldn't tell.Your eyes were elsewhere.My heart is nowhere.You can go away now.
