And I crave....

Faded glory torn to pieces

sunken eyes swarming with flies

gaping holes in the fabric of life leave me....



..........................one touch

Lost everything

It happens fast....

crackle pop lightning flash crash


floor bound closet hound

Itsy Bitsy...

You stand there pretty in pink

......lost in your own perfect lullaby

twinkle twinkle little star

......but you have no idea who you are

lost in the shadows of confessions

I remember before.... (For Shadow Wolfe's Themotional Thursday)

I remember before...

like flickers in the broken windows of time

they bounce off each other

...memories dancing in the aftermath


I remember before...

....before the truth left me here






....alone in the memory of what I used to be


I once brought you relief...

In the Shadows

Posted by Missy (AKA MRS. Wordmachinist) on June 30, 2010 at 8:07 PM Comments comments (12)

Shards of shattered glass

ripping through time

catching me off balance

looking for the when and why

Tears stream from my eyes

blood spills from deep within

drips from my pen

and pools onto the parchment of my soul

into something I barely recognize

are these words from within

Cold Static

Posted by Missy (AKA MRS. Wordmachinist) on June 18, 2010 at 8:17 PM Comments comments (16)


Raw screams blinding you from what is

Bright light of love deafening you from life

the voices in my head can't make sense

of the words your speaking out loud


Body senses on overload spinning me around

Back breaks under the pressure of it all

White cold static is all I can feel

Counting the Stars

Somewhere in the music is our rhyme

lost forever in a moment of time


Stuck in the hearts saddest lullaby

never even knowing the reason why


Close the door to loves beat

running, stumbling forever in defeat


Breathless moments catching your voice

in the end everyone has made their choice

Counting the tears of a souls demise

dropping to the floor is no suprise


Pictures ca...

Raise my margarita high

Sunlight touched my face today

and I pulled down the shade

all happy thoughts fall from my heart

as I realize the date


wasn’t supposed to look

wasn’t supposed to remember

wasn’t supposed to be like this today


Time has it’s reasons, I suppose

good thing I’m not on that jury

GUILTY!!  of crimes against humanity

in hell that clock would rot


no more tick...

Rotten stench fills the air

....breeds and festers under the perfect picture

it lays in wait

it's only enemy time

tick tick tick like a bomb it builds

working it's way into all the little crannies

spreads like a rampant disease

.....crackle crunch it breaks through

small and unnoticeable the worms of life hatch

it opens slowly

it's only predator time

tick tick like an alarm clock

it grows and takes hold of the nooks

...and I sway

Emo Vampire

Stomach knots tighten their grip

soul pulled into the nooses embrace

......and I sway

to the pendulum's tune....
