Everybody has some sort of fear.

Something every human has in common.

It kind of brings us together.

It’s crazy how things that cause chaos bring us together.

In the times where we all seem to realize we know nothing,

We come together.


You see I have a few fears.

I fear disappointing others.

I want to meet everyone else expectation of me.

I fear caring too much.

Caring so much that it will drive people away.

I fear not reaching my potential.

Wasting my time on little things

So much

That I don’t spend it on what helps me reach my goals.

I fear love.

Being Vulnerable

Giving a woman so much power over me

That one word from her can change my whole day.

Oh but I’ve been in love before

And it’s never gone my way.

But it never lasted more than 6 months.

Not that kind of love.

But a love that makes you want to spend forever with someone.

Scared that one day she’ll leave.

Giving a woman all of your heart.

She could have the shirt off your back

Hell even the underwear you have on.

You're the only light I've ever known

And through you I have been shown

That this world is not full of pain

Not every day is darkness and rain


Knowing you I have seen sunshine

Which has taken me from a world so benign

You've shown me hope and love

When all I knew was push and shove


Without you I feel afraid

That I can't make it through without aid

I often fear you'll one day leave my side

Where a darkness shall come that I cannot hide


So I make one last request

To which I hope your answers yes

Stay by my side for the years to come

Because without you I'll come undone

Every once in a while, out of the blue,

as you sit quietly in a dark room

a cold shiver crawls up your spine

as if a centipede were wrapped around it.

The air seems laced with electricity,

and each creak yields a shriek.

The fine hairs on the nape of your neck

and arms stand at attention.

They hold vigil on top of your goose bumps,

seeking high ground from the flood on your skin.

Your heart begins to thump wildly.

and you can feel the pulse in your ears.

Your eyes widen and your pupils dilate.

Time, for a second, ceases to exist.

Like a deer in the road, you freeze up.

But where is the danger?

There’s no one else in the room

and all is dead silent.

Despite all your years of rejecting

the paranormal or supernatural,

this one moment pushes all logic aside.

You wonder if some, thing, sits in

the dark, watching intently.

No, don’t be childish, you tell yourself.

And yet, you can’t shake that chill, can you?

Secrets of the tyrants

He is nothing but a man, mortal and afraid just like me. I do not fear his strength, for it is no greater than a bear's. I do not fear his speed, for it is no greater than a leopard's. Nor do I fear his intellegence for it is not greater than a human's, a human just like me. What I fear are the guards, the soldiers, the followers and most of all, the people. For they do not see what I see. They do not think he is nothing but a man, a man just like you and me.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Man may be the worlds most dangerous animal, but if you can read this, so are you.

"To a Certain Someone"

I think you're afraid

Of mostly heartbreak 

To be alone, maybe you fear

But I know you NEED someone near


Either you can't admit it to yourself 

Or everyone that's tried has changed the way you felt 

I'm not most guys, but I'm not perfect 

I'm less of the same, I'm different 


It's up to you to see that and make the effort 

Of trying to keep me, or let me go right now

I hate wasting my time

The anxiety fucks with my mind


I don't expect you to be in love with me

But I would think that all this time you'd have seen

That either you wanna waste with this

Or I'm just an obstacle in your way shit! 


I don't why I'm writing this when we don't even know each other 

But I feel the need to clarify, am I a good thing or am I a bother?

Think this through and let me know 

Or call me right now and just say "you can go"


I won't blame you, since you told me everything upfront

But I can't help but get irritated, I guess I just I give a fuck

But it would be easier now that we either never meet

Or you say something meaningful and say you like me....


I'm sorry for putting these stupid thoughts in your head

They're also dumb in mine, empty hollow pointless threads 

Sorry you met me, sorry I'm like this

I should've told you from the start, I get attached too quick 


I'm not in love, no way in hell

But I did see something here, but I guess I'm by myself 

Let me know if this scared you, tell me the truth

One thing I gotta say before I leave, I never once lied to you...

Regalia of Diffidence

I fasten tight my helm of careful thought
Eyes like arrows cannot pierce me here
Their pointed tips always finding weakest spots
Bare and open flesh; mine own Achilles’ heel

I hide behind my shield of introspective retrospection
Tongues like blades cannot cut me here
Their double edged slash never relenting
So quick and cruel; fiery shout and chilling whisper

I cower behind my wall of silent apprehension
Judgments like clubs cannot crush me here
Their brutal blows rival those of stone and steel
Announcing condemnation; already faults are clear

- ¡¿†¥lΣ®?!

And 10,000 Miles Left in Question

Gone and running in an irreversible tension
And 10,000 miles left in question
Of ideas we just forget to mention

And the thoughts are left in the dark and disappear
and in comes walking, the unavoidable fear
A unknown direction, a road we somehow got sucked in to steer

Trying to take calm within the unpredictable shadows
Take control of your senses and dodge your arrows
and forget all of the anxiousness that somehow follows

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I was on the bus and the beginning part just clicked in my head,

The rest I came up within a few minutes.

Enter My Fear

All of the welcoming emotion suddenly dies.
and the darkness shrouds the land in only misery's cries.


Enter grief!
A timeless ocean. 
Trapped of despair, trapped without relief
Enter the moon!
Endless racing of the thoughts.
Including you alone, trapped dead inside an empty room

The dead is holding you stiff once more!
Staring into your eyes, never have you felt so gone before

The time comes again, to pit against all that is you
Will you ever find the part of you that is actually true?

Paint the sky bleak
Consider everything we cannot speak

The one painting with the sun I painted as a child is lost.
Reality has broken the barrier, this is the ultimate cost


I Fear Love


I fear love. 

For it is not stable.

It can shatter,

Fall apart.

In the blink of an eye

or the whisper of a word.

And yet I find myself longing for love. 

For days spent together

and for nights spent wishing we were.

For short kisses and long hugs.

For long kisses and short hugs.

For forever.

I long for love,

above all other things

because sometimes your deepest fears can also be your deepest desires

and that is why I need love.


Author's Notes/Comments: 

Yeh so I guess I just have a lot of feelings about love right now... Enjoy reading!
