Starry Starry Night
suicide, anti bullying, art, beauty,
When Wishes were made on a shooting star
The Heavens looked down and smiled
With sprinkles of stardust on a whisper of moonbeams
They created for us a...
I See You Says The Moon
moon, sea, suicide,
They'll have you believe she was lost to the sea,
But the moon would beg to differ.
She was always lost,
Always looking for which way to go.
Her Masterpiece Is Her Story
suicide, abuse, addiction, anger, body,
Her paintbrush is a razor,
Her canvas, her wrists,
"I deserve the pain."
She shrugs and insists.
One day the brush will push down,
And it will cut so deep,
suicide, abuse, boyfriend, bullying, depression,
I'm sitting on the floor
I'm crying so much more
trying to erase this pain
trying to forget your face
sitting here with the blade in my hand
I Slipped On A Tear Drop
death, sister, suicide,
I s l i p p e d on a teardrop and landed in her arms. She never knew how much I needed...
Even The Angels Wept
angel, cry, depression, suicide,
The day you died you took me with you,
The way you lied shook me black and blue.
The sorrow you felt, I sure felt it too,
suicide, green, moon, nature, rainforest,
I Death Wood
My skeleton, the trembling tree,
hit by the axes of ambulances
due to the decay of disease.
My muscles languish as wilted leaves.
My organs are rotting...
NO ESCAPE - LYRICS
suicide, dark, deep, depression, lonely,
The freedom of life’s end without escape,
no place to elude the pain of despair.
So close was the notion of a black cape,
darkness to cover existence...
Fearful and perplexed
nature, suicide, sunset,
Fading sun elaborates
Tuscan yellow tinges
As vibrancy floats
Lavender on periwinkle
In shades of amethyst
Granting scenic vision
Atop the red bridge
Suspended in perpetuity
From vermilion towers
In resplendent posture
There Lies Art
suicide, art, death, drink, lonely,
The easel beholds a half finishing painting
The paints beside have all hardened
Pain reflected in the partial emptiness
Staring back at that gathered crowd
The sun melts on...
Cutting My Losses
suicide, anxiety, dark, depression, emotions,
Atmospheric grayscale mirrors my mood
where rainbow pastels are loath to intrude,
monochrome perverse looms ‘cross universe --
black powder train, mind is gun barrel gray
cold dispassionate muzzle...
suicide, fear, mental illness, science,
Forgotten By Tomorrow
suicide, blue, cry, dark, deep,
She stands at the edge of the precipice,
looking down towards her future.
The last tears that she will ever cry,
falling from her eyes,
then falling into...

suicide, betrayal, care, career, change,
They hate you because your you
They make up lies and call it true
They're fake behind your back
Hoping someday that you'll crack.
They hate you because your...
suicide, absence, beauty, depression, lost,
Call it what you want!
I call it, his favorite season hunt...
Two hoofs imprinted near the riverfront.
Echoes calling my soul with a loud, ferocious grunt.
When Madness Rides on Moonlight
anxiety, art, depression, suicide,
Days pass into the weak, loveless nights. The moon blinks.
The stars swirl beneath Van Gogh’s brush, as he links.
Comet light passes twisting cypresses, a schizophrenic’s...
kiss, memory, poets, suicide,
Red roses true
Skies so blue
Lovers doing what lovers do
Chocolates and confessions
of eternal love
Building up hopes and dreams
I, behind the counter
At the ripe old age of...
In the Bleak Midwinter
In the bleak midwinter,
frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
water like a stone;
snow had fallen, snow on snow,
snow on snow,
in the bleak midwinter,
END OF LIFE
suicide, death, loneliness, lost love,
SONNET – END OF LIFE
Fore'er without the pain, always apart,
As now with absent cast of yearning eyes.
Time's lonely quest to heal a wounded heart,
confusion, depression, suicide, ,
She went to sleep
closing her eyes
beginning to dream
of broken butterflies
tearing her lovely monarch wings
on faithless love that angels sings...
She finds shiny metal in kitchen sink
One last deep sigh
depression, perspective, suicide,
In the morning storm
he hums like a bird,
but words do not form -
for he can't be heard.
As he holds back cries
he feels paralysed.
Maid of the Myst
suicide, baby, beautiful, daughter, death,
Maid of the Myst
I lie in repose
Under the falls
In a tranquil pool
Of turquoise blue
He left me for another
This I could not suffer
My pain already drowning...
TRAIL OF TEARS
suicide, bullying, depression, humanity, poverty,
God knows at times it don’t all come up Roses
And most days, these days life don’t work at all
Each road I choose keeps leading me...
Born to say goodbye
death, loss, suicide,
He was still breathing,
but they did not hear his sighs.
His heart was shivering,
but they did not see it trembling.
His body was on fire,
but they did...
suicide, dark, deep, depression, identity,
This won't be a pretty picture, but I'm going to use this paper to put my art on
I'm not heartless, let me show you where...
