We do for others because we don't know how to do for ourselves. We do for others because we feel it is the only way to make up for the damage we feel our craziness is doing to society. We do for others because it makes us feel good when nothing else in the whole world does, not even pills. We stay quiet and sit in the corner because others seem so much more needy. We require so little, you and I. A fact which does not sit well with others who would label us as too much to handle. When in truth, all those such as us really need is a bit of understanding, a bit of reciprocation, maybe a touch on the cheek once in a while and a sly wink. The rest of the world is needy. I'd rather be crazy. ~~Aimee

Fractured Soul

If you read my blog, then you know the roller coaster that is my emotions of late. Today I wanted to just feel free. To fly and cleanse myself. I have been wanting to join the 100 word game at velvet verbosity for awhile and today seemed like a good day. The prompt could not have been more appropriate. If Andy Warhol, Stephen King, and Dr. Seuss had a love child, this would be it: CHASMS

into a 1000 pieces
Silent Screams
from an unheard voice
that never ceases

Falling deeper
into the abyss
Venomous poison
tickles my soul
with their satanous hiss

My eyes open 
but I cannot see
for empty sockets
stare back at me

Through the darkness
My mouth does scream
unheard sounds
not part of this dream

My soul incomplete
no longer alive
the pounding sorrow
begs it to die

Its wicked ways 
and vile charm
its seductive embrace
want nothing but to harm

Around my waist
into my veins
I feel it slither
and take hold my reigns
Surrender I shall 
just to end this pain

So, from now on, for every compliment you utter about my writing, you must give yourself two. Whether you know it or not, you are indeed a dancer, perhaps not with feet, but with words.

Aimee, you always know how to stroke my ego amongst other things.

Thanks, Miss Rosie. This is one of those things either you get it or you think I need to be committed. So glad you get it.

this was an amazing poem. I really enjoyed reading it and getting a little picture into your world/experiences.

Full of emotion yet delicately stated.

Oh, my... so full of feeling and so open with how you feel. Thank you for sharing with us.

Maasiyat said...

Seekingelevation, thanks for the welcome! Love the name btw

Arcticwren, thanks for understanding it. Usually most people see my writing as nothing more than jibberish strung together with no meaning.
