Ridiculously self- pressured, hopelessly (and unsuccessfully) in love for three years, and scared to write the things that matter. And that’s me on a good day . Good luck.

Flowers, flowers everywhere. 
Watch them fall from here to there
Pretty as silent little lies. 
How I loved them. 
I watched them die. 
Petals are falling, white and elegant, little pieces of truncated ash. 
Their softness grazes me
I let it embrace me. 
Peachy smooth skin and velvety
Lovely in every regard. 
They fall apart so quickly in the storm. 
Cursed is the one who touches them. 
Cursed is the one who leaves. 
I watch them tremble, see them roar. 
There go the little thieves. 
Flowers in her hair, rippling ringlets of gold and green. 
Only I know where she is buried 
Deep in Evergreen. 
White rooms won’t prevent me.
I know her when I see her. 
Death is peaceful, oh so dull. 
Let’s make the fun last forever. 
This is a twisted game we play, and the rivets of blood define us.
 The smell is sour, you run away. 
Drink it up, my flower. 
I am darkness. You are light. 
One cannot exist without the other. 
Shut me up, put me deep underground. 
I’ll only come back stronger. 
They say I am the stuff of nightmares. 
I say I am your Nightmare. 
After all, you are my Dream.
