Walking Art

Poem By chynna mccaskill

i draw pictures;
on my skin,
of the dark;
that lies within.
of the stitches,
that hold me together,
a weightless stone,
a 2 ton feather.
i draw the walls,
that hold me in;
all the pain;
and all the sin.
i draw dead trees,
and broken hearts;
like all of us;
doomed from the start.
i am a piece of walking art.
feel free to stand and stare.
don't think that i don't see you.
i know that you are there.
i feel your eyes,
i see your fear.
and all those words,
you know i hear.
your words mean nothing;
worthless tokens.
like lines on a script,
left unspoken.
but i hear you,
all the same.
you know that,
i see your games.
i play no part,
in the grand scheme.
if it even exists,
for there is no theme.
no life is,
always the same.
everything,
one day will change.
so im a piece of walking art,
but try to save yourselves.
do not read to deeply,
into my own hell.

End Of Innocence

Secrets, secrets
Lies, lies
She sits in her room
And cries and cries

Icy Grip

The icy grip of
Loneliness
Has grasped my soul and I feel cold
The sun has set on my life
