I have more chances to lie now.
In speech, in text, in writing,
In body language and glances.
Give me a mirror, because I hardly know what I look like anymore.
I hardly understand who I am.

ghosts give and love
more than the living do.
I love dust, and darkness,
and I love greyness,
I like the light and the dark combined 
into the culmination of my breath 
on cold winter days,
or those autumn mornings when the frost expands
over my footprints, crackling through browning grass,
or the early moments of spring, the snow icy and hardened,
melting into my movements with fluid snaps,
the falling out of ice over a river, emancipated, freed,
as the sheets crack and groan over rushing waves,
dark blue, deep, foaming around stones
mossed over with lichens and a Russian breeze.
oh, find me,
find me in the shadows of schoolgirl playgrounds,
playing tag with their owners, following fire ants
as they clamber up stone walls that seem tall
to children running across asphalt.
glimpse my breath, my smile, between rusting chain-linked fences, 
twine wound around a stuffed animal's neck, a threat
to the other ghosts on my mind;
a split hand, a neglected figure
lurking on the o

History Class
come at me, I'm a revolution,
the majority murdering minorities 
with capitalist candor
and greedy infinity reaching away from me 
I'm a ship on the sea, sailing to my destiny,
my fate, my death, drowning in my own wealth,
because I have money, and I have time,
and I have fullness and dictatorial responsibility,
a broken record on Marxist theory, 
I wish they'd listen to me 
I'm a revolution 
I'm the change in a world staying the same 
don't tell me that I don't matter, 
don't push me to the corner, 
I belong in the interior, fighting for democracy
that will never come for me 
but, well, tell me the story 
about how your father fought in the Crimean War,
the first World War, the second, the battle against communism,
the marches against discrimination last week
I'm the person in the back, or the front, or the middle, the side,
rallying myself into throngs of no one, everyone, the only someone who cares,
hungry and hunting for

Memorial Room
Go down,
Seep into your floorboards,
Vibrate in their cracks and creaks,
Muffled footprints on carpeted footsteps.
The walls whisper with texture,
Remembered cubist memories washed across their wallpaper surfaces,
The bookshelves silent with the scent of well-read pages,
Or the forgotten fossils of pink playthings
Sent away to newer children.
A cabinet full of precariously pencilled drawings,
Coloring-book pages blooming in blues and browns,
Tarnished paper, ink blots on shaking hands,
Memories torn down for me like words in a story.

Sweet Dreams
Okay, can you take me to the end?
The bittersweet scream of love at the climax of a story
Full of hatred?
The antihero, the antichrist, the child of some lawless flawed goddess
And a triple-themed dream of avalanches and secrecy
A presidency presided over by a pre-determined candidate,
Picked from a hat full of exploitation.
What would you have chosen anyway?
There's a road no one in our families talk about, a dead end in conversation;
A silence after a sentence that could be filled with a realization
That our thoughts aren't the only ones that matter
And our preferences are a subject of subjection
With added judgement to taste.
Cool yourself with a whisp of whispered promises
That you'll do better next time.
I'll be funnier.
I'll be smarter.
I'll be faster to respond with a snarky remark
And a fist to the face that deserves it.
We don't want to be touched, we don't want to be restrained
By the arms that restrict us, wrapped around our craniums
And warped with chrysanthemums watered by
:iconthecagedthestral:thecagedthestral 0 0
I'm not nice
Lost again
In the abyss of nescience,
Listen-less and silence and
I speak to emptiness
The same way I cause it.
I'm not a good friend, I'm not a good person,
I only care about myself and sensibility,
Reasonable to the end that I can't even support a friend
Because my painful honesty cuts off my kindness.
I'm a mess.
But not as far gone as they are, the ones I pair myself with,
The ones I have no idea how to comfort, no inkling of what to do,
I don't know what's expected of me, and even when I do know
I mess up my comfort by telling the truth.
I've got a personal point of view that I just can't properly twist
To fit the need and situation.
I don't know.
I don't know how I'm supposed to do this.
I wish I had the right answers to everything, I wish I always knew the right words to say,
I wish I didn't always let truth get in the way.
But maybe I find truth to be more fascinating, more brutal
In a way that shocks people out of their inner peace or war
Far more than a lie could.
But more of

Sleep is a lie.
I didn't sleep,
I thought,
And I thought and I thought and I thought
And I thought in the pretense of sleep,
I thought in the absence of sleep.
I spoke to myself, my mind, for an hour and a half
Of something feigning sleep, something bordering dreams,
I dreamt in stacks (skyscrapers), three stories at a time,
Layered on top of each other like heaps of blankets,
Clumped together and tangled between limbs
Thrown haphazardly across my sheets
Amongst heartbeats and the complaints of my stomach
Full of acids eating away at nothing,
Frustrated by misfulfillment and finite feelings
And the dishonesty of waking up having not slept at all,
Not a wink, not an ounce,
Living through eyes closed and disjointed thoughts,
And how is that any different from reality?
From wakefulness?
Form anything we consider physical truth?
I wouldn't know.
Would you?
Would anyone, if they stopped to think about it?
I wouldn't know what sleep is;
Because I've dreamed all my life.

Desperate Imagery
The crooked star on our Christmas tree
Shines its sickly light down on me
Barren, butterfly wings,
Full of empty shiny things
And promises, however frail
Broken as my fingernails
Scratching at my skin every moment
Tearing off pieces for enjoyment
Strewn across classrooms and graffitied desktops
The march goes on, my mind never stops
Sending words to war like toy soldiers
Red blood smears on grey jeans,
This is the culmination of dreams
But everyone says that, every poet screams
Into their own voids of desperate imagery
Of death and love and loss
So nothing is born by the cross
There's black and blue and broken bones
Ribs caging hearts that sit on plastic thrones
Threads between heads destined to collide

Evening Evanescences
Cradle me in the tulip arms of a graveyard,
Gazed out upon by my melancholy mistress 
As she turns headstones from dust to dirt 
At the feet of eclipsed skull skeletons and 
Worn paper bags full of ash.
I don't know who to ask, I drift to the back 
And stumble over something, sans-sunshine, 
A shadow of nightmarish words etched into my wrists, 
Crawling up my back and dusting my shoulders;
I read them and breathe a sigh of relief.
I feel them and they are me.
I couldn't bear to be bare, skin empty and thin,
And oh so white, a fake front, a facade 
To the engulfing greyness within,
The yawning feeling of something, once hollow,
Now full of a chemical compound made of lies and honesty.
I don't want anyone to understand me, I 
Want them to look at the words on my skin, filling my mouth, 
Etched down my throat, spewing from my frozen fingertips,
And announce me an unburied corpse.
Don't hold a funeral for me.

Hi I'm Silva; I'll be posting poetry, fanfiction, and art of my own as well as some fanart. I do have digital art, but what you see here may more often be pictures I took of things from my sketchbook, so sorry if the quality isn't so good. I mainly draw wolves, but I'll try not to be a wolfaboo or whatever you guys call them; otherwise my works on here will be fairly varied.
