Purple plaid hoppers
Striking asphalt reluctantly now
A death march, to swallow lilac pills tasting of bile and lies
There is not flame and void
Well no void
They beat against the bars of her ordered silence
Over crowded, her demons break free and crouch at the ready
Pounce and rip
Tattered restraint
I don’t want to know you…you might not escape

Warm honey scented comfort is missed bitterly

She is standing on the ashes of the pillars that spurned her
The scion that came after
And charred remnants of “with me, for me” but not really
Dangerous ground, it’s brittle over there
She’s empty so empty
Crimson pain and guilt trickle slowly
A crippling mockery of what could have been
Crystalline lava on battle weary cheeks
Still smiling cause that’s what you do
Never let them see it, never let them win, or let them in
Wise advice this time

Warn honey scented
Taste of spicy…mmm…something just beyond the tip of memory

Brings silence.
If not order
And comfort if not total relief
It stops the chatter
Those demons in conclave, even in her own brain
She’s afraid to put pen to paper
Waiting for the end of days
To gaze upon the final finish of tungsten armor
It takes forever
But she has diamond tipped phrases
And lyrical blades
What fear is this that won’t let her use them?
Catching in her throat as wet hot splashes against black keys

Warm honey scented
Spicy flavored…mmm….home

Rocking slowly, stroking gently
Tender gestures
And just lets her cry

She picks up paper and she writes.
