I’d be lying if I said I’m okay

Today torrential turmoil

So full I’m overflowing

Lava fields solidify loss

Thoughts stagnant in stone

Collective torment of the invisible woman

Endured and embodied

Residue of resplendence washed away

Into a massive caldera of an ancient volcano


On ashen acid aching

Rim collapsing from seismic shaking

Cover me with stones

Bury these tired bones

I need to go home

But my demons

What a pity

They live in my chest

No matter how deep I’m buried

They are always with me

Tried and true

Amplify insignificance

Do I ever appear

In the recesses of your mind

Long enough for you

To think about me

Silence speaks apathetically

Voraciously vulnerable

Ultimately unsafe

Melting into magma

Where I belong

  2. That is one scary looking skeleton. I like the lion too. I am always trying to improve my blog photography. This sounds like a great support site for people with emotional struggles.
