In the Aftermath of Him
Sometimes I wonder why
I let you trap me so easily
Like an abandoned cat you cornered
In the middle of a storm,
Watching with wary eyes
As you reached out a gloved hand and
A smile that said,
"You can trust me."
Sometimes I wonder why
I didn't turn and run
The second you opened your mouth
Whispering words coated in powdered sugar
That knew each syllable to use
To cloud my mind and make me forget
Why I thought you were a bad idea
Sometimes I wonder why
I believed you
Every time you told me
Sweet nothings that skirted the truth
And gave me daily presents
Of silence
When you were all I really wanted
Sometimes I wonder why
I didn't see you
For what you were, a red-tailed hawk
Flying around my head in circles
Swooping in for the kill
And pulling back too soon
Just so you could have the upper hand
And leave me
Wondering why
I wonder when you'll realize
That cats have claws too
That you're not the only one
Whose words can sting like razors
And leave you
Bleeding out
I wonder how much
You'll r

Literature
She's Not a Toy
You played her like new guitar strings,
Distant and rough and senseless,
Not caring what part of her your hands traced
Or what scars you crossed over
As long as you heard a sound
She bit her lip and smiled
Dreaming and falling all at once
Not seeing the snake eyes that landed
When you threw the dice,
But the blue of yours
That she couldn't forget
You said nothing
When she caught you in your lies
When she realized that the words you whispered to her--
at night, alone--
Were meant to cut and tease
That she was only a pretty face
You wanted to add to your collection
By the time she realized
That it was just a game,
The ace was in your pocket
And it was too late
To turn around
She was already a player
And you had already won

Burned
Your "I'm sorry"s and "I care about you" have grown stale
The vowels have molded
The lies peeling off like rotten flesh from bone
I'm sorry
That you're not
That you can't look me in the eyes
That I didn't speak my mind
Well I'm speaking now
So I hope that
You're listening

The Way It Was
I'll admit
I miss the little "good mornings,"
the cups of coffee I never drank,
the way you looked at me
like I looked at words,
as if you were falling in love
over and over and over
again
each time you read my face
You said I was a poem
that you didn't understand
But I was too tired to explain why
I spilled the coffee that morning
and didn't kiss you goodnight
The Truth is
I'm all out of pretty words
and you wouldn't want to hear them
anyway

Stop Whining, Writers
So, I've read a lot of angry posts recently of Deviants whining about how their writing doesn't get enough comments, favorites, or views. Any of you who feel personally attacked or frustrated because no one is looking at your writing needs to understand right now that no one is obligated to look at your art. Just because you try really hard doesn't necessarily mean that you will get rewarded for it. You may not, and honestly, you probably won't. There are thousands of works being uploaded on this site everyday. Realistically, your art will probably be overlooked unless it is of extremely high quality, controversial, or a nude photo. Photos of nearly naked girls in provocative positions will usually take precedence over your writing, even though you did much more than take off your clothes and snap a picture with a phone or camera.
Whether it's right or not, the nature of the world we live in is mainly concerned with immediate pleasure, something literature can't generally give you beca

People Will Always Hurt You
They all know
The girl in the high heels and red dress
Who smiles like an angel
But will break you with a single word
And a look so cold that you wonder if
Maybe, she's not even human
They all know
That her voice will cut you every time
More than knives ever could
That you’ll come home with freshly wrapped bandages
Too tight, but not enough to stop the bleeding
You want to believe them when they say
That people can change
But the second you let your guard down
She stabs you again
And watches you struggle in pain
While she smiles and looks down at you
From the castle you can't storm
They all know
The boy in the back of the room
The one with the highest grades
And the cocky grin
That you draw doodles of in between your notes
And glance at when he's not looking
They all know
What will happen when you ask him out
When he takes you to dinner and offers you a ride home
When a ride home maybe isn't just that
When dinner wasn't really what he wanted to pay for
And you realize too late

The Finale
They say knives only burn if you let them
but I didn't ask for the sting or the stains
on my face
and arms
or the dust in my hair
from the fortresses you destroyed
You took your horses and men
armed them with guns and words
pointed at my chest
my heart
my lungs
so I couldn't breathe
or speak
You left me with nothing
so I left you first

Asterlia's Profile Picture
Asterlia

Artist | Student | Varied
United States
I'm a 20 year old creative writing major who now only writes sometimes, and is always obsessed with cosplay. I'd love to write more often, but I lack inspiration (and motivation).

Other things crucial to my existence: video games, fangirling, reading, books, chocolate. And if I were an animal, I'd probably be a cat.

My custom literature tag was made by :iconmikikimio:
