Noise, noise, noise
All I hear is the noise of your
Bickering and complaining for
Not getting your way,
For facing a single roadblock
That does not budge to your privilege.
Loud and obnoxious noise rises
Higher onto the ears of the unwitting
Masses that are the unfortunate victims.
Screams of privilege permeate into
The night, wailing for not getting their way
In a society that requires hard-work.
Feelings deep within my frozen heart
Rise and falls like the shimmering sun,
Wishing to shine bright and far,
Permeating to the far corners of darkness,
Yet nothing grows,
No color shines with the emerging
Feelings that lie deep inside,
Solidified and caged within the
Cold heart that longs to grow.
Lost in between the stars
I float aimlessly in the expanse
Of space and time
Waiting for you,
Waiting for you
To return to ground
Me in gravity once again,
Back to earth away from
The stars that remind
Me of your sparkling eyes.
Easy to call a man a hoe
And easy to call a woman a slut
Just for refusing to adhere to
Societal norms that requires
Someone to put out after a dinner
And a half-assed B-rate movie.
We are shamed from being strong
And confident, for refusing to lower
Our standards to the level of lust.
Never bow and never fall to pressure
Lest you wish to become weak just
Like the people surrounding you.
The pain I feel keeps me alive
And keeps me from losing sanity,
Yet, I grow numb with you by my side,
Numb with every passing day
As you enter my mouth,
As essential as water for my survival.
Without you I am nothing,
But with you I lose my identity
And the pain subsides, if only
For brief reprieves from sorrow,
And who I was is present in the mirror
Looking back in shame of who
I have become. Dependent on you,
I have lost my identity but I cannot
Leave to rediscover myself
Unless I wish to find myself without life
And simply another statistic for you.
I ran away from the demons that haunted me,
Running from the absolute pain,
Whirlwinds of torture and torment
Tearing at my supple flesh,
I run away from the horrors of you,
The demons that you released
Onto my deserted path,
I run away from the pain
Of the demons that haunt me
As long as I am with you.
