by anne anonymous

no blood dried wasn't drawn
no lover forgotten hasn't gone
no thing unsaid has left my head
from "i love you" to "i'd love to be dead"

heartbroken words
by josie burg

ever since that night
i have always wondered, was it my fault?
was it my fault that you touched me?
was it my fault that I have panic attacks now?
was it my fault that nobody believed me?
was it my fault that i get made of it now?
was it my fault that my own parents can't look at me the same?
was it my fault that i just freezed up and couldn't tell you no?
was it my fault that there's zero proof?
was it my fault?

Sad Knight
by Civl 12346

What would thou think of me tying rope to the tree?
With every strike mine own sword stabs back at me.
Perhaps I will let mine enemy pierce me,
For I can go on no longer.
Each day I sharpen and shine my blade.
And each day in its reflection I see myself fade.
If only the Fades could snip mine tarnished thread
And leave me strewn among the field with the other soldiers lying dead.

I look to the heavens; may He guide me.

Betrayal and Enmity
by Seren VonStein

You may give me strife
But you may not have my life--
My body, my sanity,
Uncontrolled in your vanity,
Think you can take what you want
No regards to me
I put up a front
Because you can take my freedom
But you can't take my pride.

A letter to my mom
by Rowan Gilbert

Dear mother,
i love you dearly,
but my lord are you a bluffer,
and i know you love the real me barely,
you love the image of me you've created,
i was child who needed protection,
not a trophy of someone you think you've aided,
i exist as someone other than something of your creation,
and some days i wish you'd hold me tight,
and others i'd like to run away as soon as i can,

All the crimes I've committed
by Kira Walker

What if the perfect murder
Is all that i do on my own?
What if i can't go further
And I'll have to do it all alone?

I look in the mirror and
Don't see myself anymore
All i see is a lifeless body,
A stranger looking, a faded blur

Kintsugi
by Lynda Grine

I took your broken vase
Put the pieces together
Took gold to hold’m together
Still not enough
Because you yearned for the flowers
It once held
