Monday Mornings I sleeping in Dreaming of things we’ll do in spring after I’ve taken several shots Piled pillows in your room matching pajamas sailor moon we’re all together until we’re knot It’s been one two times before i been invited but there’s more times of the other than I can name But I’d always step away claiming my body as the one thing that I could safely blame I BLAME MY CAR … for running out of gas It’s not that cute, mostly annoying Maybe in spring things will start to change I’d rather stand in place bearing the weight that i can brace than give you my hand to hold Then I’ll give away my hat my gloves my jacket that I love as your look starts getting cold And I can read a room until it says you want me too then I start to feel the doubt Just tell me what you want and then I’ll finally know where I can lay down It’s not that cute, mostly annoying That’s just how, I’ve always felt Maybe in spring things will start to change

eat my bones and throw me prone wring your neck as you try to peck out my eyes crack my skull and make it full a vulture's soup bowl from the blood you stole lammergeier lammergeier lammergeier lammergeier i see you squawking your little head off are there bones in it? do you need to cough? you best stop talking to me overgrown parrot talon to talon beak to beak it's apparent that you don't respect me that i don't respect you i don't even want you to i don't even like you lammergeier lammergeier lammergeier lammergeier you're circling me just waiting for me to die you'll have your feast in time lammergeier

We ended the storm again But the storm isn’t done I still remember You won’t be the last one Those won’t be your last words You will speak again The oaks will remember Even if we forget Born in Cincinnati Stuck in a cage You were one of a kind You were the end of an age We all came to see you To pay our respects To see the finale A pilgrimage to our debts The oaks will remember Because trees can’t forget But if I opened the door for you You won’t see your friends They’re all just shadows Or notes on a page But if the sun is low, and the shadows grow We could begin a new age These won’t be your last words You will speak again The oaks still remember You will be born again

My heart is a liminal space Passions passing through on their way to some other place Time is so strange here, still feel like a stranger, I'm trying to regain my footing Find a path to better days Follow the roots, see how deep they go I'll wear the moon as a halo That familiar crescent blade Feel it hanging in wait Longing for that thread to break "Who were you before you became?" A voice in a dream whispered a name Half awake I can still hear the humming We're only ourselves, becoming Late night reflections Questioning all I've sown Gardens far overgrown Open door beckons Satellites stitching through nights so swiftly Memories redshifting to Dim recollections The skies will part and undo the undone I'll hold the stars burning on my tongue Still I'm filled with hollow hunger For the echoes of thunder For the waves to pull me under "Who were you before you became?" A voice in a dream whispered a name Half awake I can still hear the humming We're only ourselves, becoming Silver-gilt blessings Fingernails dressed with dirt Dig down into the earth Little black crescents..

Walk away from me Let me sleep in peace I don’t want to know What you say you know What you say know Stay out of my head Let me rest forever Stay away I am cold Warm by the fire Charged with desire Don’t tell me what’s in my head I don’t want to know Let it bleed all over the carpet Red just like the snow Red just like the snow Fight my way back home Back from this place You got in my head You can’t come in again You can’t come in again

so tired another corpse for the pyre another body retired i can no longer feel the blood inside my veins so decayed another frame worn and weakened a plea for help without speaking i'm losing track of how to overcome myself so empty of all the feelings to tempt me for all the things that resent me can't feel the muscles twitching underneath my skin so hollow another sequence to follow another poison to swallow can't recognize myself inside the mirror man the ghosts shall call my name amid the flames and tame me we know each other's shame we're all the same they've claimed me so insecure it never hurts like it did before another illness without a cure the ghosts are singing opera right outside my door so unstable a most uncomfortable label a setting quickly disabled i'm looking for a way to reassert my will so disconnected an error never corrected a payment never collected i now can pass through walls and float above the floor so fleeting a sea of goodbyes but no greeting an army always retreating i feel the most at home amid the quiet dark the ghosts shall call my name amid the flames and tame me we know each other's shame we're all the same they've claimed me

i dont think you understand just how fine im doing i know i sleep late and vent on twitter but could a depressed person do this? sometimes i see myself in the mirror and decide to go back to bed but you know some things were never meant to be ooo i dont think i can live like this for much longer i try my best to stay together but could a depressed person do this? i try to see myself in the best light to not be like this all the time but you know some things were never meant to be ooo

i know i’m fine but when i try to write anything it comes out sad oh it always comes out sad i knew pain at too young an age is that why i don’t know how to make art that’s not so blue there’s a part of me that wishes that i would grow to forget who i was but even the thought of losing him is too much to bear cause he made it through so much so i’ll try to find a silver line life’s going good and i know i should be focused on what’s going right but i look back at darker times i get so mad whenever i’m sad my neutral is south of everyone i promise i like to have fun there’s a part of me that wishes that i would grow to forget who i was but even the thought of losing him is too much to bear cause he made it through so much so i’ll try to find a silver line i’m who i am today cause of what i went through yesterday i’m happy now but i can’t outrun the frown that used to be my friend there’s only memories that separate me from those bad dreams i don’t know if i will ever make it to a place where i will put some ink on paper find it leaves a smile on your face

you laid down in the web lost yourself among the golden threads can't you see the stars in flames flowing through your veins like ice and fire the moon ascends fate spilling from your eyes again flowing down your soft cheeks like teardrops in the ocean a small wound in the sky a quick twist of the knife are you dying, or just waking from a dream are you dying, or just waking from a are you dying, or just waking from a unweave the threads one by one shed your skin and bare your soul embrace the night and be undone forge your fate and take control a black moon in the sky a rusted blade buried inside are you dying, or just waking from a dream are you dying, or just waking from a wipe away your tears it's time to start again you laid down in the web lost yourself among the golden threads can't you see the stars in flames flowing through your veins like ice and fire the moon ascends fate spilling from your eyes again flowing down your soft cheeks like teardrops in the ocean
