The vision

I closed my eyes
I clenched my fists
Deep heavy breathing
That’s all it would take
To one step to the future
In a flash of light
I wasn’t there anymore
I was kneeling on a wet pavement
The skin on my knees were scraped and torn
My hands were covered with blood
As if it was submerged in it
Tears streaming down my face
As the light struck down upon me
My tear streaked face shone
While my heart was dark and destroyed
The aura lit around me
The colour of black
Blood poured out of my heart,
Until there was none left to spare
Like a thousand daggers pierced into my skin
Until all that was left was an empty dark hole
One last tear fallen from my eyes
Splashing on the cold hard ground
As I closed my eyes and I was back
I was shocked and horrified
Then all I saw was darkness

My tears hold my fears

Everyday is agony
Nobody there
Just the voice of my own
The painful memories that haunt me
The whispering words of hate growing louder and louder
Thrumming in my ears
Everyday I open my eyes
Hoping for the acrimony to disappear
How stupid I am to think that it would work
I close my hands into fists
Closing my eyes
Listening to the raindrops
Burst into a million more and roll away
Glaring at the bright sun
Hating it for being so bright
Wishing for the wind to blow me away from this world
Thinking that the ice will freeze me to death
For the pain to shatter into pieces
And I’ll be free

The bird of the night

The glossy black feathers
Brushing against the fierce wind
The sharp angular features,
The intensity of its eyes
To gaze and glare.
The slight curve in its beak
To slash and attack its prey.
The elegant wings
Blending into the dead of the night.
Soaring through the sky
Into the mysterious twilight.

Water

Water is as smooth as silk.
Water droplets are diamonds, bringing light to the gloomy cloudy sky.
Water is like a ribbon, precisely settled through the green and brown scenery around it.
Water is suffocating darkness, smothering shadows on you.
You keep pushing up but you’ll never get to the surface for air.
Water is a hungry beast, swallowing you whole, the world growing dimmer.
Water, the devil in the night, an angel in the day.
