You cut so quick
I bleed so deep
Your fire, your ice, your sharp mystique.
You cut me quick
My breath so sharp
We've never been so far apart...


I'm stuck in the dream I had at eighteen,
I never knew you would be so mean.
Or maybe it's me,
So lost at sea,
But why would you want to drown with me?

Wednesday, December 21, 2011


But do I really wish that I could build a time machine?
And go back to when you were falling for me,
Instead of falling away.
...Cos as crazy it seems, baby, we both had dreams
And now were tearing, at the seams.

Brown Eyes

But very well dressed.
I get nervous round you
(I've often professed).

Tuesday, November 29, 2011


And we're running babe from heaven to hell
Escaping it all, escaping our cell.
The rush only takes a fraction of time
Cursed we may be but baby you're mine...

Tuesday, November 22, 2011


And through our lips, you will suck my evil soul
And downward spiralling we will fall, far to end it all.
You can never understand how hard it is to love you every day
For the sizeable pain through my shrunken frame, for the strength I pray...

Sunday, November 6, 2011


Ugly, tattooed and battered blue
She's lonely, she's bony and craving you.
She's reckless, she's lost, she slowly unwinds
You walk away swiftly as her veins they divide...

Tuesday, November 1, 2011


Her beauty was like the edge of a sharp knife.
Yet it drew you so near...

The Incident

Since I heard what happened I can't stop thinking about you.
In that dark, with so much pain;
No face, no name, no one to blame.
Now in that white room all alone
So many faces, fights forgone...

Friday, October 7, 2011


With a beast that's inside I'll say goodbye;
To my life, to my pride and all of these lies.
With a beast in my mind that's biding its time
I won't have to try to say goodbye...

Monday, October 3, 2011


Like those waves by the beach,
Just out of reach,
The shadows each night grow darker.
Like fear of the dark and Death's own mark
He wished for the courage to ask her.

Monday, September 26, 2011


Yes it's true you brainwashed me and now I'll brainwash you.
Yes it's true;
You said you loved me and now I'm crushing you.
Yes it's true I'm a little confused
But now I can see that we're finally through.

Monday, September 19, 2011


And through the deep, the scars that you keep
That leave you empty, after defeat
You try til morning, on your two feet
But they all fall final from this pain it aint cheap!

Sunday, September 11, 2011


Since you left I can't stop crying
Deep deep down, it feels like I'm dying
From top to toes I feel so numb
But alone I can see what I did was dumb.
I'm all alone, I'm oh so scared
I wish I were, much more prepared...

Monday, August 29, 2011


Like moments of fear and ink to bone
No matter the surface, deep down she's alone.
She's alone in the crowd, alone on the floor,
All around, the monsters roar.

Wednesday, August 17, 2011


For a lot of those people it was the drugs, then the depression. Then a different type of drugs to cure that. For me it was the fuzzy peace of drugs that took away the pain, at least temporarily. "That's a short cut to addiction..." she said, winking a heavily lashed eye.
But everything in that life was addictive, certainly...

New Fear

And through the storm, feel me shake
Nurse me through pain and the pills I take.
And through the storm, smother my roar
I'm so so scared that I love you more...

Monday, August 1, 2011


I miss those nights:
Around the fire with all the fun we could want. Smoke filled tents and screaming dreams. Visions on the sands. Bodies colliding and laughter, everywhere.

Friday, July 29, 2011


And each day with you I feel more alive

Wednesday, July 20, 2011


But I can't wash your scent from off my skin.
No matter the showers, no matter the hours
I can feel you on me, feel your powers.

Tuesday, July 19, 2011


Always well dressed, aims to impress
A hooker at heart and a tramp, at best.
Always in the latest, hangs with the fakest
She could have been the greatest but instead she gets wasted.

Monday, July 18, 2011


Like burning flesh
Flash bulb pressed
To never be seen again.

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

The Hunter

All inked up, she wants to play
Til he warns her, low, to keep away
The shaking bones of her birds cage chest
Is where she wants his hands to rest.
But he won't flinch, that she knows;
He whispers "babe, there's far to go".

Friday, July 8, 2011


Beautiful pain, so much to gain
Deep inked words on a skeletal frame.

Tuesday, July 5, 2011


In crowded deserts and empty streets
She wants to know when they will meet.
But through crowded deserts and empty rows
She really wonders, how far to go?
Her body aches, her body screams
You hear her cry please Set Me Free

Thursday, June 30, 2011


And deep below skin where hope will begin
I'll paint my feelings black.
With needles sharp and a wounded heart
I'll let the pain attack.

Wednesday, June 29, 2011


It's easy to say you never knew me
Yet you found it no trouble when you tore and threw me
Aside, you put me, you didn't care
Yet you still were the one to cry about "fair".
You weren't ever honest, you really could lie
But in your defense, so could I...

Tuesday, June 14, 2011


And even though your body's banned,
I'd like to take you by the hand.
And even though there leers a fright,
I'd like to hold you, through the night,
Be with you, out of sight,
Not shy away from your villain's bite.

Sunday, June 5, 2011


Like cigarettes and sin as our days begin
The nights that follow fall.
You left the room while the speakers boomed
Only to follow his call.

Tuesday, May 31, 2011


Cigarettes & death, empty threats. Wasted youth & late night bets. Bets you lose & the women you choose; to devour your soul while you try to prove. Something more, a late night whore. Never stopped creeping out that door. Shut doors, alone. Her lonely throne. As she slowly fades, into bone.

Monday, May 23, 2011


I don't think I could lose you,
So instead I try to bruise you...

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

I Can't Love You This Much

In spite of all these nights
I'd rather argue with you than be with someone else.
In spite of you and all your lies
I'd rather be with you than all alone and by myself.

Sunday, May 8, 2011


With eyes so cold I never knew their colour,
And a heart so black it broke me.
Entangled arms through tripped upon nights,
It was only death that woke me.

Tuesday, April 26, 2011


And even now, when i see you,
My heart it runs so fast.
But when you talk, there's no words left,
For you are only my past.

Saturday, April 23, 2011


And she'll take to the skies
With your hopes in her eyes,
Dream weaver, what a deceiver
It took a fool to truly believe her.

Friday, April 22, 2011


And as I passed you on that street with your empty dark eyes,
My heart both froze and, tried to hide.
Frightened but glad you hadn't seen me,
Hadn't ever seen my lies.

Friday, April 15, 2011


You don't want anybody at all,
You just cant stand the darkness on your own...

Sunday, April 10, 2011


Like blood stains and sweat:
Cold and wet.
Pressed into sides, crushed into walls
Just wiped up proof, hidden in drawers.

Tuesday, April 5, 2011


I can fly... but I want his wings,
I can feel but I want that strength that he brings...

Monday, April 4, 2011


These stockings ripped all up my thighs
And these lights they play with my eyes.
This dance floor, tonight will quake,
While in your arms I shake and shake...

Sunday, April 3, 2011


if only you could lick my wounds for me...

Tuesday, March 29, 2011


Thin with longing
With her cracking white bones
This girl finally sees that she's all alone...

Sunday, March 27, 2011

Heart Beats

...And at Death's bedside she became Blue's bride
Crying each night to release fear and spite.
When she came she bit deep, releasing the heat
And left in the cold, to find what was old.

Wednesday, March 23, 2011


fire and brimstone
smoke and hope
you thought he loved you
but you were merely a joke

Friday, March 18, 2011


i remember that one night when we kissed;
i could feel your smile upon my lips
and for the first time in a while, i remember feeling happy...

Monday, March 14, 2011

one more night

he drops to his knees
she says "please my love please,
don't you ever leave
me in this maze
you know that youre all i need?"

Friday, March 11, 2011


all the stars and all the boulevards
the crushed-dream girls who try so hard.
they walk the streets, at midnights hour,
trying so hard to reclaim some power.

sun fall

and back at home she went out in the city and had too many drinks. she danced all night and saw stars in the air. glitter, magic things. she had arms draped around her and numerals were sprinkled throughout the evening. men men men. the night was alive, pumping like an organ. but all the magic dissolved when he told her his name.

Saturday, March 5, 2011


as we flew into delhi it was pitch black. a new mass of people, places, ideas... positioned as fairy lights under stretched, hazy skin.
we swooped and descended, the adventure begins.

Tuesday, February 15, 2011


and his body was tattooed with stories of the centuries
the bleeding lines a map of time and lies
"follow" he said, "youll find what youve been looking for..."
