Parked MailboxShe said "I ran into a parked mailbox," just a jokeParked Mailbox by AloiseBrennan
Listened to her mother's ears releasing red smoke
Was a moment of laughing so candidly
And did we ever think we'd take it so seriously?
That's just a memory I keep in a can with me
Canned laughs can't beat how much I treasure humanity
When did we all disappear so suddenly?
Suppose we never stopped growing, or undid the
Yards of string weaving this complicated masterpiece
Is growing up so terrifying or is the attitude after me?
Is anger justified when I'm betrayed by my family?
Hated by order but also by anarchy
Living in this circus I feel worthless
Given me the circumstance is cursed
Only by bitter words I've purchased
Meddling and pedaling and running in circles
I may be slow but
I've seen enough of
My life in a box like a project not done
And nobody can tell me I'm the only one
What's the news today?
A young man passed away
The brightest and kindest man
Mankind could ever see
Antihero, tragic hero, protagonistic caus
I Become Lucid at MidnightMaybe I should cut my hair shorterI Become Lucid at Midnight by AloiseBrennan
Or bleach it till it's white
And I could make a pile of clothes and burn them right now
But I'll only be burning money for the second time
Then again more sugar?
Really, another movie in bed at midnight?
More reasons to feel guilty?
Filling a void with lifeless junk
Am I really so stupid to think this works?
If you saw how broke I was
I guess you would have to say yes
"You're not learning a thing"
But I don't want to take the pills
Anything is better than relying on those guys
They steal my mind and my heart
They stiffen my soul like starch
Nobody should be made 'normal' with an orange bottle
Shake as I may, hyperventilate as I might
Screaming tears in my pillow at night
It's chaos, and maybe it's freedom
Even if I'm forever a slave to my broken self
Never quite as functional as I dream to be
But the original parts are still there
I'm not a vase clumsily patched together with glue
Let me lie in pieces
Just don't make more of them
Bee and the ButterflyYes, I'm crying into my pillowBee and the Butterfly by AloiseBrennan
Didn't hold it back, but I don't know why though
Sometimes I get caught in an emotional net
But I know I'm a butterfly and I can't forget
Who I am to these faces surrounding me
Daily surrounding the magical air I breathe
And no matter how many times I lose it
I remind myself where I belong, I know it
Took me so long to realize the size of it
But I have a family and I am important
So no matter where you are listening to this verse
I want you to pause your mind and your heart in reverse
And setting aside doubt, to yourself you gotta say
"I'm important to someone and that's okay."
That's a real mighty thing to say that's okay
'Cuz we get so used to being alone day to day
We can't let ourselves settle for a one-man band
'Cuz don't he look tired? Can't you lend him a hand?
All those parts he tries to play are pieces to partake
In a universal song, peace and harmony we make
Make a world more whole, individual worlds
Solving colossal problems and miniature quarr
LaurenFixed-NeverSeen.My goodness I'm proud of you. My goodness, my dear.LaurenFixed-NeverSeen. by UselessRomantic
I hold her hands, dancing in a field of golden sun. She is highlighted, surrounded by light. Her skin, soft and smooth, unmarked. I stroke her arms gently, before drawing her close. Peaches and cream. Her eyes, deep and blue, look into mine. All I can see is love. It's all around me, making me dance and sing. Hope.
