I'm a magnet

For searing pain,

Smiling through my mistakes-

Because I can't shut away

The truth drowning in my poison rain.

I'm a risk taker

Choking through my tears,

Rough raging ruins

Of every segment of my heart-

Made of solid stone.

I'm lost in a dream

Sick to my bones-

Stuck behind my blood red walls

My prison in written words,

The ink dripping down in ribbons.

I'm an outrageous addict

For emotions tasting of lies,

I can't draw out the stars

They fluctuate before fading-

Into heaps of golden ash.

I'm forever looking past the sky.
