I never miss
by Bogdan Dragos

"Relax," she told him. "I never
miss."

She found his vein from
the first try
and shot him
And the stuff was so good that
he died

Addiction
by Sumit Maurya

We were running and we were safe,
We were high but well behaved
Positive souls by all that mean,
Driving cool in a fast machine
Then something happened,
We blacked out
We stuck in the dark,
Could not shout
It's the car wrack,
That we couldn't move

the slaughter of the unhinged
by Mister Rotten

him [cold like the arctic wind]:

the frost I recall,
the slightest of shivers
the chill that brushed over my shoulders
I was longing to thaw, I was longing to shield
yet she burned, and she blazed
while I smouldered

Elvis Presley: The Same Amount of Time
by Randy Johnson

You've been dead for the same amount of time that you lived, forty-two years.
You were loved and your death devastated each and every one of your peers.
You didn't perform in all fifty states, one state that you missed was Montana.
You performed your last concert on June 26, 1977 in the state of Indiana.
Two of your hit songs were 'All Shook Up' and 'Hound Dog'.
You had great taste in motorcycles, you sure did love Hogs.
You had a wonderful life but not a life that was long.
When doctors constantly prescribed those pills, it was wrong.
You loved to give away Cadillacs, you truly had a heart of gold.
It was very sad to lose you when you were only 42 years old.

Why Don’t They Hear Me?
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

Why don’t they understand me...
Why don’t they hear me when I yell...
All these prescriptions are causing me problems...
I’m living my life in psychiatrist hell...

He never listens when I say I’m tired
Of all the crap they teach at school...
All he does is overdose me...
Face down on my desk in a puddle of drool...

Black Magic
by Brendon Hall

Winter rolls in just in time to freeze my heart
Close my eyes and take me back to the start
Before the storm rolls in and black magic clouds my brain
Can’t help but wonder how long I can sustain

A corrupted heart, thoughts darker than the abyss walked
The remedy flowing through my veins, as I lose my ability to talk
Strolling through the valley of the shadow of death
Looking around and notice I’m the last one left

The Search For My Serenity
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

My struggles really started...
When I was just a kid...
Running the streets and getting in trouble...
For everything I did...

I wanted people to like me...
To have friends and be really cool...
But I always felt like a outsider...
Alone, every day after school...

Fall asleep
by Rachel M

Those late nights where you
toss and turn in your bed ,
You’re mind wide awake
and alone In your head.

If you would close your eyes
And just fall to sleep,
Maybe your thoughts,
wouldn’t cut you so deep.
