Random Poem:

Cripple Effect
Thenameless

I am out of things to say.
 1
Just one of those days.
 2
Out of my head, I pray.
 3
Plead the heavens to stay.
 4
Give me what has come.
 5
Give me all that remains.
 6
A step closer to home.
 7
 
 
Two circles pull away like
 8
magnets that repel.
 9
Sickness invades and I chant
 10
words to dispel. Its
 11
poison grabs at my neck,
 12
back, and bones. My chest
 13
lacks the air to control.
 14
I’m paralyzed now and you
 15
know. I fear your steps
 16
walk over me. I fall.
 17
 
 
These tears are like silver.
 18
Pushing slowly out the skin.
 19
Reflecting the moon’s light
 20
across your perfect lips.
 21
So I suppress.
 22
I always have.
 23
I’m the mess.
 24
I play chess for
 25
the rest of my life.
 26
 
 
Chaos was my gift.
 27
Feelings I could shift.
 28
I have the seducing eye
 29
to bring them to their knees.
 30
Bring them to that void
 31
of never knowing why.
 32
 
 
Why I am so sly.
 33
Why I never try.
 34
Why did I ask you
 35
to judge me judging you.
 36
Sponge off the knowledge
 37
of being the one that knows
 38
the end before it begins.
 39
I distort
 40
my
 41
own
 42
origins.
 43
