Untitled And Unfinished

Poem By Olivia Elise Braun

Breathing in and Breathing out, losing feeling and sight of the night
The cold air that hits my face as I look out to the fire dancing on the city
The ashes look like fireflies racing past the glass, burning out
Voices that can’t be distinguished, the words they say escape
Lost in this place, unfamiliar in every way
Close them now, silence out the sound, black out the colors and let the feelings go numb
Open them in your mind, the life that has left you behind
Everything you feel that has been lost and taken, for one moment are yours to hold
You have a place in the times you felt empty and alone
Not one minute, or breath is with pain or hate
But wait…Open your eyes, look away from your fantasy life
The flesh and blood you share runs cold, they aren’t there
The blood has fallen to the floor, and the flesh has rotted away, It is no more
The cold grip of reality is around your throat, tighter and tighter unable to breath
You feel the life in you being to leave…

Drowning In The Past

Walking though the hallway of my mind
Looking at everything I’ve left behind
All The ghosts that refused to die
And the lingering question of Why?

Life That Was

Open your eyes to a world anew
This is the first day for a baby who never knew
That in false pretences was life explained, and that in this life the only love is pain
Those who should love you most are the ones breaking you down


Rip out my heart strings and play a bloody lullaby
Take me for all I am and tear me down inside
Let your claws shred my heart, It was already broken for the start
I gave you all I was, but it seems that it wasn’t good enough

Requiem For A Broken Heart

Hear the beat, the beating of my heart
I look at them at it starts, my heart beating faster and slower all at the same time
My mind couldn’t think of anything else but that their mine
Closing my eyes, thinking of their smile and just how wild they are


Blood rushing down the pen, hitting the page it’s all a mistake
The story starts… with an innocent heart caught by a wicked eye
Lured with promises, the sweetest lies, building up to a bitter demise
The shadow lurking, found its pray…
