You see her nonsensical whims and think to yourself,
"nothing but a simpler state of mind."

    Yet —

She hides behind an ivory mask,
skeleton smiles
and torpid mirth;

Radioactive sulfuric masses of artificial
crystalline lips upturned in an adamant curve.

Laughter echoing throughout hollow bones, concave and
just as empty as the cartilage ensnaring the vacant

You can't fathom the netherworld tucked deep in her translucent limbs;
nor comprehend the frenzied howls from the fangs of a decaying Cerberus.

For when you will at last board Charon's ferry and float down the conflagrant waters of
Styx, regarding her perched upon a throne sewn from the blistering skin of her enemies and
wearing a crown of brambles and tears and seeds born of pandemonium—

    Her soul's true colors will shine at last: her mind and body nothing but kindle for the overdue vengeance of her ravenous


Something that is actually me venting about certain things, but I guess the way I wrote it will conceal exactly what that is.

I'm still on a writing hiatus; however, this needed to be written before it was lost in the jungles of my mind. Plus, my personal laptop is still being checked out to see what went wrong. I'm using my school laptop at the moment. Also, I am sick. Therefore I needed something to do since I'm staying home, and rather than write something more productive, I come up with this crap.

Please continue to be patient with my fickleness.

The thing that I love the most in your writing is that you manage to turn emotions into words, and those words are ART. I wished that I studied this poetry in school! XD

Like fire, hellfire, this fire in my skin
This burning desire
Is turning me to


But this is really great. I really just marvel at your ability to write out all your thoughts like this... This is not crap at all. This is great stuff, something that will end up in an anthology of amazing works someday.

I assure you.

And I hope you (and your laptop) get better! :(

I've never seen Hunchback, actually. It always freaked me out. I just like the songs.

But thank you very much. I hope to one day be featured in some sort of anthology.

Yeah. :| I hope we get better too. *been sick for three days, bro, and it SUCKS ASS*
