In the Dark
Sometimes, you try.
You crawl out of bed. Brush your hair.
Cover your face with makeup so they don't see the red.
Throw on a dress. High heels, boots.
Play pretend.
Sometimes, you don't.
You keep the bedroom door closed.
Lights turn off. Invisible faces, invisible tombs.
Tangled sheets, screams that don't leave.
Trapped in your head.
Sometimes, it's useless.
Either way, they won't

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

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

Blank Pages
I'm nothing and no one
You looked at me
and   saw shadows
:iconasterlia:Asterlia 7 9
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
:iconasterlia:Asterlia 3 5
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
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
:iconasterlia:Asterlia 8 4
No Turning Back
You burrowed into my chest like a parasite
I didn't know you were there
it was too late

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
