run – Poetry Of An Aspergian

Listen to my demons They tell me to run away I have so much to offer the world Why must my home be the grave Repetition so there’s not a word I’m missin’ Tryna plug my ears so I do not listen Steal the knife out my hand So that there’s no ascension The devil’s […]

End Games – DeveReaux’s Newfound Words

Leading us on a path to darkness Closing our eyes to the brightest, the fight is To never be satisfied with life I’ve never seen something taken so swiftly As sweet breath consumed by hungry lungs Can there be anything as precious As the cavity in this seldom satisfied cage? But we do not recognize […]
