    SYNTHETIC EMOTIONS

    A drop of purple in the pool of black
    Felt merciful, cut white some slack
    My feet moved fast to a slow song.
    Hopes and Wings, are supposed to break
    The butterflies are dead, let’s cut a cake!
    Around my neck I put a noose.
    Dancing hard, chasing a wild goose,
    Till all the strings break
    Just like my heart.
    A symphony’s been playing ever since
    Like a love song on the radio
    They said it’s good for my cardio
    But I beg to differ darling
    Cuz it only left my senses burning
    For the rhapsody of your touch.
    Consuming these synthetic emotions of amour
    I hum a broken melody
    Of the irony of love and its parody
    Waiting for the end to come.
    And perhaps it came too soon
    For no one saw the next full moon
    As I sat there bathing myself in blood.
    This pain in my heart left me screaming
    But when I looked up my eyes were beaming
    Laughing in the face of death.
    My fingers strummed a tune of apocalypse
    A prophetic revelation of a cataclysmic abyss
    Savoring the last dance in each other’s arms
    Watching the never-ending snow globe of a fleeting us.

    This is for the girls who want a Prince Charming in their life with whom they dream of a happily ever after....

    Ladies, beware, you better not wish for that...

    I mean, like..are you people even serious?

    You people are just dreaming of a guy, who apparently falls in love with you (nd that's good), but doesn't even remember the face of his true love the next morning, but just remembers her "shoe's size"?

    😂😂🤦😂😂

    You better rephrase your wishes

    A BREATH OF FIRE

    //Tangled under the soft corner of broken dreams... Why does it feel I enjoy those scary nights... The secret Nightmare that once haunted me...but now...Oozes the pain. //

    I draw my hand...
    To get some help
    But this suffocating world...
    Is already dying...
    My life has gone numb and
    Tears just rolling down my face to find...

    Drawing my hands to hold you!
    Only to end up grasping Air!
    Never before I felt this breathlessness,
    But never before I met a person like you!
    Our memories haunting me day and night!
    Taunting me to be with you!
    The moment I reach you..
    You disappear in mist...
    Leaving me helpless...
    Breathless... To suffocate with the talks of us!


    My dripping suffocating life...

    //Drip...drip...drip...I find myself surrounded by the inky darkness of my blood. I can finally touch those thoughts that I had once embedded deep inside my corpuscles...the pool of blood that I sit in turns gradually into a lake...the lake into river...the river into a sea...and the sea into an ocean...until one day it consumes...not only me but the whole world//

    Sitting on the sand
    Waiting for waves
    Turning my pain into something productive
    Trying to avoid rage
    But between your love and my insecurities


    I don't know why I always suffocate

    //Questions fill my mind, clouding all my thoughts. Plethora of doubts attacking me riding the trails of the zephyr of distrust... I cling onto your memories once again for warmth...as I find myself getting cold//

    Drowning in your memories.
    Hopes were dead and melancholy won.
    My silence is quiet loud,
    Probably which only I can hear.
    Every thought i had about you is a battle.
    And every breath is a war, even in fresh breathy air.


    It feels better to suffocate being with you, rather than with the distance between us.

    // Does it really feel better to suffocate being in love with you rather than with the distance we hold? I don't know the answer to that and I guess that I'll never know for this growing distance is the only thing that I've experienced and learnt to be true//

    Minds grow tired
    Hearts grow numb
    The throats grow dry
    The lungs get burned...
    Set ablaze by the fire from the pits of hell...
    And all that remains are charred remnants,
    A broken carcass of paper lungs...
    They say that water puts out fire
    But then why did I find my lungs surrounded by blazing infernos...
    Making it hard for me to breathe with every passing second...
    As I drowned in your love..?
    My breath came out in short gasps...
    Chest heaving up and down in passive aggression...
    No, I wasn't breathing
    Had stopped doing that long ago...
    And darling...you mistook it to be everything except for suffocation...
    With all the air being squeezed out of me...
    It always made me wonder...


    Was I allergic to love...?
    Or had it just been you...?

    //That night, the heinous cloud formation took place above the clasped in hearts intertwining to the eternity. I could feel it, feel it dancing to the un audible melody that you recited. It? Oh my conscience it never forgets someone this fast..I drank the potion, u were there feeding me the drink. I felt, my breath in gasps... Gasps u say, oh just the way to live. I won't surrender for I use my sword to drip on my feelings.

    Strangulated suffocated and under your black love. I feel the life ebb out, But I won't give up. Not for myself but for the tiny devil residing in me, telling me to rise forward. Rise to the eternal scene//

    a rag left me
    undiscovered
    my lifeless body
    finally fetched tranquility visiting to the devils shade
    within seconds
    life seemed to be playing
    a nightmare of feeding
    my soul in the market
    a breathless moment
    choking my dreams
    the lungs morbidity
    nothing to inhale
    inside my core
    it feels dizzy
    my hands consoling my
    throat - speak up !!!
    Yet words wont exhale

    I hung myself to death

    //The noose always hung loosely around my neck...all it took was, you to tighten it...and my body dangled in the air like that of a 'Teru Teru Bozu' doll...the wind whistles a painful tune...the melody of a forgotten funeral//

    darker it gets
    the more my head aches
    i inhale but nothing to exhale
    the air fades into the mist of my lungs
    i wonder where goes, because it feels helpless
    demising myself
    crucifying the light on the cross of my heart
    yet feeling uneasy with darkness closeness within my skin
    how long i have to travel on this dreary paths
    abandoning my patience with time that tricks
    me
    n' me falling for her every lucid plans
    death's mayhem
    causes pain in my soul
    but I feel the atrocious chaos of blood fighting
    with its own comrades for fun
    me enjoying the scenic beauty seems
    devilish ideology causing diplomacy within my own cells
    they wonder if i turned into one of them
    asphyxiate panting
    closed voices crying inside


    not out of pity they ask for mercy
    enthrallment depriving their freedom of speech
    they ask for nothing more than mortality
    its enough of bloodshed , stained on their lives

    //I wonder if my demons pity me...did my suffering finally melt their stone cold heart..?...The empathy I see in their eyes is unmistakable...but I don't want that...it only angers me..i want admiration in their eyes...Yes, admiration...respect...fear...a chill must run down their spine everytime they think of me...their eyes must widen in apprehension every time they think of crossing me...that's the type of fear I crave for in them...and I promise that one day, to make my wishes come true...For on that one day...I'll surpass my demons//

    Staring at the ceiling
    Screaming voices in my head
    Insomnia hits me hard
    Lost in your memories
    I fall down to my core
    Hurricanes in my mind
    And fireworks in my heart
    I'm so tired, sitting here waiting


    I've trouble in finding myself in this world
    And it hurts like hell
    Loving you is more suffocating than the suffocation itself.

    // Trying to get it to stop hurting, I try to clear my mind...maybe it was wrong of me to think that going the dark way would help..maybe light was better.... But all I see is darkness. A static of pitch black. My eyes start drooping, until it flies open in shock. Is it really what I think it o be...that...is that a light..?...I can see it blinking...It becomes bigger...bigger... (my heart elates in joy)...bigger...bigger...and...BOOM!!!....it bursts with more intensity than that of a supernova...I stare at everything transfixed until realization creeps in...my eyes widen again as I shake my head in denial...this can't be happening to me...no...No...NO...NOOOOOO........//

    All my hopes...they got shattered within milliseconds...as usual...
    But this has taught me one thing...that...after all darkness is the only thing that will be there for me...
    For betrayal is where light is...
    The love had vanished long ago...
    And I had been treading neutral waters of pain for quite a while ...
    But now I've shifted into something deeper...
    I can now feel this power buzzing in my veins...
    It's the feeling of revenge and deep hatred that fuels me now...
    No...I won't call it revenge...I'll call it 'returning the favor'....
    Making you feel the same pain that you put me through...but ten times stronger...
    But before walking down the path to my newly found aim...
    I'll go back to the beautiful meadow where we first met...
    And dig two graves in the rich brown soil...
    One for you...
    And the other one..? Darling, it's for me....
    Don't act so surprised dear...
    I had been dead long ago...
    Breathing was all I did...
    My heart had stopped...
    But do you know what started it again..?
    It's the feeling of vengeance that had sparked in my heart one day...thawing the freezing cold...
    And I nursed that little flame into the raging wildfire it has turned into now...
    Hoping that it'll burn you alive.

    //And for once in this lifetime...I see my wishes coming true...my hopes not getting squashed in the callous hands of fate...was a shooting star , for once, on my side..?...i wonder what it is....turning back to look into your eyes...I see them pleading...begging for me to stop this pain...isn't is ironic...because some time ago...it had been me who was on his knees...praying to you to return the light...but did you ever listen...?...no you didn't....so neither will I...Seeing your clothes drenched in the gasoline of doubt....I smirk coldly before flicking the burning matchstick of revenge at you...my scrutinizing eyes watch you finally burn...screaming...clawing in the air desperately for help...until your ashes are swept away by the wind...a feeling of satisfaction creeps into my chest...I never knew that it was this revenge that can make me feel so high and on cloud nine...And for that I owe you//

    I owe you a lot
    I owe you my success for dumping me.
    Now, I've come out for my reprisal upon you
    They say only weak people revenge
    But are they even aware that
    The best vengeance is massive success
    For already you are filled with remorse & shame on leaving me
    Imma immerse you in life full of repentance with my victory.
    Imma dunk you with my grin from ear to ear

    And I see you grinning at me too, flashing a smile so wide that it almost threatens to rip your face apart, looking at me with eyes so cold, and as dead as mine. When people see my deranged smile, my unfocused eyes...they are always quick to label me as a crazy maniac. And perhaps they are right, for I had always been so...But there's still a catch in here ...back then, I had been crazily and blindly in love with you...and now..?...sweety..you should know the answer to that...its hate that I'm blinded with.

    内に隠された

    Girls have a dark secret...
    And even if they try to deny it...
    They never fail to enjoy reading a good romance novel once in a while
    And believe me
    If you ever come across them doing it,
    You'll see their lips curled up in a soft smile
    For behind that tough persona, spitfire attitude and sharp tongue...
    The little girl who never used to sleep without her favourite teddy is still in there....
    Even though she has become cold...
    Remember that it's nothing but a response to the stimuli of the tragedies she has faced...
    That she still needs her hugs and kisses...
    And maybe on one cool night
    With the rooms lit with scented candles...
    Filled with rose petals...
    And the zephyr playing with her dark locks...
    You'll see a princess, so frail and delicate....
    Instead of the queen wearing her mask of regalia...

    Okay...so guys..
    Am focusing on a serious issue here...its bout the weakening bond between the parents and their children...I had witnessed some cases...and after asking for reviews from a few people I decided to write this...
    P.S. This isnt made to offend anyone or derogate the image of ones parents...
    If you think that your parents are controlling your life and its bad...then just remember that if you would have been controlling your life...it would have been worse

    THE MINIM OF A METHADONE

    “She was their shooting star…
    For with her, their wishes came true
    But what surprised me the most
    Was that she was their dream catcher too…”

    // “Congratulations !
    It’s a girl!”
    A wide grin broke out on the man's face as he looked at his wife, who shot him a warm smile before going back to nursing the baby in her arms. He reached his hand out to touch the cheeks of the sleeping child as he memorized every contour of her angelic face. Yes, she was their child, their baby girl, their princess.//

    It was a small family of three and…
    They were happy…
    It was a small family of three and…
    They were happy…
    It was a small family of three and…
    They we-….
    Wait ! Did I say ‘were’ ?
    Oh Yes !
    They ‘were’ happy…maybe ecstatic even
    But that happiness soon disappeared…
    When they realized what a disappointment she was.

    //Disappointment, huh? Maybe she would’ve stopped being one if their expectations hadn’t been so extravagant…//

    Have you ever experienced a situation where
    You have your favourite pizza every single night
    Feeling the delight of it melting in your mouth
    A euphoric sensation exploding deep within your taste buds…
    Until one day it fades into a dull tingling ?
    It had been the same with them…
    She was no longer a wonder child
    Had stopped by that point long ago
    The song of her life had stopped sounding so enchanting
    The moment it got stuck at the chorus…
    Repeating those lines over and over again
    And their eyes too had lost that wonder
    Replaced by a look of indifference
    Their ears grew tired
    For they had wanted the next verse to play out
    They wanted something new…something more…

    //Drip. Drip. Drip.
    A bead of sweat rolled down her pale face,
    Adding to the growing pool of salinity below her
    No ears could hear her labored breathing, as they came out in short gasps
    No noses could smell the tint of copper in the air, as it grew stronger with every passing moment
    No eyes could see the growing hue of red, as it totally possessed her sweat
    That day her fingers didn’t stop strumming the chords
    Desperately trying to sing the next few verses,
    Instead she kept on trying….and trying
    For the wind had never stopped whispering in her ears…
    “Something more…They wanted something more…”//

    Who was she?
    A human?
    Perhaps, yes.
    But for them…wasn’t one.
    To them she was more like a…
    A…humanoid dolled up version of genie
    Rising with a curl of smoke from the non-existent Arabian lamps
    Ready to do anything at the drop of a hat
    Expected to fulfill all expectations…
    The desires of all beating hearts…
    The dreams o all mortal eyes…
    Yes…everyone’s…every single one of theirs…
    Except maybe her own.

    //They called her their shooting star…
    For she had made their wishes come true…
    And one night they hung her by the window…
    Tightening the string around her neck…or was it a noose?
    Her white dress fluttering in the cool breeze…
    As her body dangled in the night air,
    Like that of a ‘Teru Teru Bozu’ doll…
    Oh…Wasn’t she their dream catcher too…?//

    A love that had no beginning, a love that had no ending....but was a journey in itself...full of tears and smiles...grief and joy...detailed in complex web of intricate details which are incomplete without one another...

    Its you who resides in my heart
    Its me who resides in your yours
    With the red string of fate tying our knots
    Its not just you and me...
    Its "us" now..

    THE "OUR" WORD

    She :
    //Yesterday when I was young,
    The taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue,
    I teased at life as if it were a foolish game,
    The way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame;
    The thousand dreams I dreamed,
    The splendid things I planned
    (I always built them, but alas,)
    On weak and shifting sand;
    I lived by night and shunned the naked light of day
    And only now I see how the years ran away .
    For yesterday the moon had been blue,
    And every crazy day brought something new to do,
    I had used my magic age as if it were a wand,
    And never saw the waste and emptiness beyond; //

    "When I was young, I thought the world of you
    You were all that I wanted then
    It faded and I never saw you again
    But I won't forget the love we had."


    He :
    //Yesterday, when I was young,
    I felt the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue,
    I killed mockingbirds left and right like a pro in a game,
    The world crowned me king, kept my throne in the hall of fame;
    Hearts broke down like house of cards
    (I always built them, but alas,)
    And that too was on weak and shifting sand;
    I lived under the harsh light of the day, getting burnt more and more
    Kept my heart inside a closet, and those inhibitions outside my door.
    For Yesterday, when I was young,
    So many happy songs had been waiting to be sung,
    So many wayward pleasures lay in store for me
    And so much pain my dazzled eyes had refused to see//

    "When I was young, I thought the world of you
    And till now, you are still on my mind
    You were all that I wanted then
    And maybe I still do
    For that'd explain this need to put my arms around you
    And hold you close
    To my heart...
    You say it faded
    And I too thought that it did
    But then why do your thoughts still dominate my mind
    Your words, my heart
    And your presence, my memories...
    Darling, you say that you never saw me
    But that was because the world had blindfolded you..
    Masked my existence away behind a layer of eternal abyss of darkness
    But believe me,
    I was still there
    Looking over you
    From the stars
    Did you ever feel the wind caressing you on a few starry nights...?
    That had been me..
    trying to comfort you...
    I was...am...and will be
    Always beside you
    Whispering those three magical words in your ears...
    Maybe you'll hear it
    And whisper them back to me
    With the same quietness
    Or maybe not...
    But I know that u won’t ever forget the love we had.."

    Ok...so...guys...recently I'm not in a very good mood so this may become lame...actually I had written this one last night....but while I was about to post it..my finger slipped and instead I clicked on the delete option so all my hard work got wasted...I tried to reconstruct it as much as possible...but when it comes to poems I think that you cant write one thing twice...but whatever...
    I know it's long as hell...as usual...so I'll just use my age-old request for my readers to please please please read it to the end...nd the comment box is there..open for y'all..

    P.S. : it has references to two songs..."I'm in love with you" by Doro Pesch (the lyrics of this particular song is there within the backslashes)...and "I cant help falling in love with you" by Elvis Presley (the lyrics us there in the body)...the rest r written by me...

    I've been longing for your love
    And hoping you will see
    I'm in love with you//


    I'm not dead..yet
    With no injuries that can be seen...
    With no physical wounds that are bleeding...
    With me still breathing...
    And I guess I'll fit under what you define as ' I'm okay '...
    Do you know...today they told something that surprised me...
    They said that...I'm in love with you...?

    //Night after night, strolling out in the darkness
    Demons in my head got me
    Hanging by a threat
    Time after time, year after year
    On my own it's such a lonely road//


    I open my mouth to speak...
    But no voice is heard..
    Except for a few silent whispers...
    That are carried away into the cool night wind...
    It feels claustrophobic in here..
    My throat burns...
    Lungs constricts...
    Mind grows tired...
    I look around myself in hysteria..
    Only to see you standing there...
    Only you...nothing else...
    nothing more...nothing less...
    Before my vision starts blurring...
    I wonder what kind of blindness this is...?
    Is it the disease of love...?
    For I'm in love with you...?

    //Wanna let you know how I feel for you
    Wanna let you know I'd die for you
    Got to let you know my need for you
    Got to let you know I'd die for you
    Baby...let me tell you I cant breathe without you..//


    Insecurities crowd my thoughts...
    My mind gets clouded by the black dreamsand of nightmares....
    As I wake up every night right at 3 in the morning...
    Bathed in cold sweat...
    I imagine you standing here...
    Holding me tight to your bosom...
    I search for comfort in the non-existent warmth...
    Trying to lose myself in the lanes of nostalgia...
    Desperately clinging onto the broken figments of my imagination....
    Until my mind shapes those figments into reality...
    For I see you right beside me...
    Feel your hands in mine...
    I lean forward to capture you lips...
    Expecting the sweet warmth to flood through my body...
    Only to feel the mocking touch of cold wind caress my cheeks before drifting away dancing...
    Making me realize that it had all been an illusion...
    A dream...
    Was it because I'm in love with you...?

    //Day after day, struggling to get through
    Feeling so alone without you
    Tear after tear keep falling from my eyes
    I'm so afraid you might not want me too
    Like an angel turning dark to light
    You come to me in my dreams
    Your caresses in a lonely night
    Bringing kisses bittersweet, yes kisses bittersweet
    Bringing kisses bittersweet that makes me feel better
    And I go to sleep knowing
    It's not real//


    Real...Fake...I dont understand these things...
    You told me to trust you...
    But I don't know what to trust...
    Should I trust those warm look of love that you always throw at me when you think that I'm not looking...?
    Or should I trust those cold harsh looks of hatred that you project everytime our eyes meet...?
    The trust...its broken...either way...
    But I still trust you...
    The bond...its severed...inside out...
    But I still feel for you...
    Thinking about you every night as I gaze up at the stars...
    Is it...Am I...
    Am I in love with you...?


    Trust, such a delicate thing.
    So easily broken, so hard to win.
    Our bond seems stronger than ever....
    But still feelings strecth and spiral downwards...
    So then why..?
    Why doesn't it seem as though the distance between us is greater than ever?
    Even when we are miles apart...?
    Why is it I crave your touch even in my dreams?
    When all I want is to erase your memories...
    Why is it when you are near I feel as though I own the entire world....?
    My heart leaps whenever you smile...
    Taking flight in the raging storms...
    Doing frenzied somersaults in a lovesick trance..
    Filling itself to the brim with these unwanted emotions...
    Until one day I see it shattering like thin glass.
    My glass heart...
    Was it being held together by you...?
    It must have been.
    You...
    You hold my heart...you still do.
    Despite everything that has happened...
    But I truly don't remember...
    When ?
    When did I give you my heart to hold..?
    To care..to protect...as if it were your own..
    When did I trust you so much that I handed it over to you on a silver platter without so much as a thought...?
    My head hurts as I try to decipher these feelings that are swallowing me whole...
    Not only my head...but this glass heart of mine hurts too...
    No...not because I dislike you...
    Not because I hate you...
    Believe me...I cant...even if I want to...
    It hurts because...
    Because...I had been waiting for you to say those words to me....
    But you never showed up...
    So I kept myself hidden...
    But i cant now...not anymore...
    I'll confess to you my deepest feelings...
    My darkest secret...
    Although I may be too late by now...
    I take a deep breath...
    Calming my nerves...
    Girl...
    I'm in love with you.

    Wise men say
    Only fools rush in
    But I can't help falling in love with you
    Shall I stay?
    Would it be a sin..
    If I can't help falling in love with you?
    Like a river flows,
    Surely to the sea,
    Darling, so it goes,
    Some things are meant to be...
    Take my hand,
    Take my whole life too,
    Sweetheart...
    For I can't help falling in love with you....

    Ok....so guys...this is a type of poem-story combo...i know it's too long...but please read it to the end...nd do comment

    P.S. : the song is not written by me...I should've mentioned it but I forgot...how stupid of me...its a part of the song album named "Why" sung by Rascal Flatts...nd penned by Robert Mathes and Allen Shamblin...But the rest...from where the song ends...its written by me

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~♡♡♡♡♡~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    "You must've a been in a place so dark,
    couldn't feel the light
    Reachin' for you through that stormy cloud
    Now here we are gathered in our little home town
    This can't be the way you meant to draw a crowd
    Oh why, that's what I keep askin'
    Was there anything I could have said or done
    Oh I, had no clue you were masking a troubled soul,
    God only knows
    What went wrong,
    and why you'd leave the stage in the middle of a song
    Now in my mind I keep you frozen
    as a seventeen year old
    Roundin' third to score that winning run
    You always played with passion
    no matter what the game
    When you took the stage you shined just like the sun
    Oh why, that's what I keep askin'
    Was there anything I could have said or done
    Oh I, had no clue you were masking a troubled soul,
    God only knows
    What went wrong,
    and why you'd leave the stage in the middle of a song
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Now the oak trees are swayin' in the early autumn breeze
    The golden sun is shining on my face
    The tangled thoughts I hear a mockingbird sing
    This old world really ain't that bad a place
    Oh why there's no comprehending
    And who am I to try to judge or explain
    Oh, but I do have one burning question
    Who told you life wasn't worth the fight
    They were wrong
    They lied
    And now you're gone
    And we cried
    'Cause It's not like you,
    to walk away in the middle of a song..."




    She put her guitar down as she finished the last line of the song...Nothing felt the same from that day onwards...
    His death...it came as a bolt from the blue...
    She never understood why he did so...
    Suicide...she never thought that he'd do it...
    He never had a reason to...or did he..?




    And it all became clear the moment she found his journal...her eyes flew to the last page...seeing the words written in blue... a sad smile played on her lips as she traced the words with her fingers...he was a poet at heart...and he still held it close to his non-beating heart at death...for poetry were his past words...




    "If you are reading this then it means I'm not here anymore...Gone...Far away...You may not be bothered by it..Or you may be you are...But it doesn't matter now...I'll just tell you why...If that's what you want to know...if not...Then crumple this piece of paper and throw it in the bin...Or better...Throw it in my funeral fire...But I dont care what you'll do...well...I used to...but not anymore...I'm just seeking closure...

    Disappointment swirling in their black orbs...
    The glares pierced through my soul...
    Shooting a bullet right between my eyes..
    Stabbing me repeatedly in the heart...
    Until there wasn't any blood left to bleed...
    This was the outcome perhaps...
    Not the one I had hoped for...
    But the one fate had burdened me with...
    Wasn't I foolish to go on searching for acceptance....
    Sailing around the whole world...
    Wearing my finest clothes...
    Plastering my face with my biggest smile...
    Selflessly carrying my heart in my sleeves...
    Just so that someone would acknowledge me...
    Not as a hormonal teenager with mood swings
    Not as an attention seeker who craves for the limelight
    Not as a random nobody who's going through a phase in his/her life...
    But so that someone would acknowledge me for who I am...
    As an individual.....
    A human being......
    As someone who also craves for love...
    Someone who dreams of rainbows...
    Only to wake up and stare at the wall in cold sweat...
    To find it telling a story in shades of grey...
    But I guess it really was too naive of me to think that I'll find the acceptance that I'd been seeking...
    For I knew that my dreams were as hopeless as finding the fabled land of Eldorado...
    But what can I do...?
    This urge that tugs at my heart...
    The need that clouds my mind with desperation...
    It's clawing at my sides...
    Inflicting scratches deep enough to draw blood out...
    The intoxicating smell of my blood....its driving me insane...
    Call me a masochist...I dont care...
    I've just trained myself to enjoy the pain...
    For that's the only thing I have in life...
    The only thing that has accepted me...
    I'm swimming in euphoria now...
    This feeling of being high...
    I cry tears of black in happiness...
    Finally...I'm accepted...
    But I know that this trance will break soon...
    Making me plunge in the deep ocean of reality...
    Where I'll once again see those onslaughts of glares...
    Experience those feelings of not being accepted...
    And believe me...
    It hurts.....it does...and a lot too....
    But do you know what hurts the most..?
    Its...not being accepted by your own loved ones...
    Your family...
    And it re-ignites in you a flame...
    A fire with a need...no..a desperate want of acceptance
    It threatens to burn everything that stands in its way...
    Until one day it consumes you...
    Leaving nothing behind...
    Not even ashes...

    And...today...I'll tell you something...
    It will be our little secret..
    That fire...
    It consumed me too...
    Burning me inside-out...
    Setting my whole body ablaze...
    So I put the noose around my neck...
    My flaming body dangling from a rope...
    And that's when I screamed my last scream...
    A scream of pain..
    A scream of freedom
    Before cursing you all to the same fate..."

    That night she fell asleep
    While sitting at her place in the verandah...
    Clutching the old journal close to her heart
    Whispering into the wind
    "You are free now
    Fly high Angel-boy...
    Fly high..."
