Consuming thoughts weigh me down again,
Paper thin skin beckons me like a friend
To hurt it, to burn it, to rampage it whole,
Each little prick devours my soul.

Just let it win, just let it sink in,
Watch as my cheeks hollow with sin,
Just let me be, such a foolish belief
That it would be kind enough to let you breathe.

Exhale and exhale, the heaviness persists,
Eats away at my heart with a devil’s kiss,
Fire and hunger - more like cold and deceit,
I am not broken; I’m dead, I’m not me.

Waist getting thinner, life’s just a whisper,
See the choice that made you a sinner?
People are blind; if they see they don’t care,
Leave me to die, gasping for air.

My arms feel heavy, I feel tired and old,
The world decided my fate would have to be sold
To the devil to see what I had become
For him to play with me till my time is ready to come.

So he ravished my soul and kissed me goodbye,
I waited in panic, wishing for light,
Burn in hell? What’s worse than this?
I don’t think you see the world I live in.

Smoke filled lungs, charred and dark,
Haunted from breathing in lies from the start,
My own flesh and blood spat at me to see
How much I could take before I killed me.

I had a dream once; I’m still holding on tight,
It’s the only thing that lulls me to sleep at night,
When the voices begin, it’s time that they sing,
And whisk away all my fears and wait to see what it brings.

I’m living a life; petrified,
Scared sometimes to even go outside,
Chased by my past and kicked down by them,
Hold on; one day you’ll never see it again.
Broken hearts; silver and gold,
Blood still pumping; dry and old.

Cracked bodies failing fast,
Lies and regrets drift up from the past.

Eyes so tired, begging for sleep,
Needing help, unable to scream.

The world too violent, crazy and loud,
Miserable; drowning out the shouts.

Fight the demons with all you have left,
Even if it steals your dying breath.
Dark moons clouded blue skies,
The stars that once glittered and danced
Exploded and cascaded down,
Glistening as they went.

Blinding white clouds once illuminated the calm sea,
Now a storm was brewing with thunder and lightning.

Trees that once stood tall and green,
Twisted and crawled ominously.

Birds that once skittered and rode sapphire waves,
Now were lying stained in ruby,
Wings no longer in flight.

Breath-taking green that once swayed in rhythm
Were washed away in gasping drought.

Hazy purple, blue and navy,
Sparkling and shimmering shades
Swept across the sky from a brushstroke,
One from the squeezing, dying light.
The Death of the Forest
Been a while, eh? God, I'm scared about my future. Damn high school. Why do you feel the need to suffocate your students? Is it too much to ask to breathe? Huh.
     Well anyway, I got inspired after reading a beautiful fan fiction that featured blacked out poetry. I do insist that you go and explore it because it truly is beautiful. I have to go and procrastinate so I can pretend that I don't have stuff to do. Sometimes, I think, it's like I use what's happened to me as an excuse to be lazy and distraught. I need more TV shows.
So it's the time of the year where on celebrates one's birthday and it was pretty cool. I'm getting pizza. I like pizza. I shall eat pizza forever and replay Portal 2. Even though I just finished the game yesterday. I will replay it and watch Sherlock and Merlin boxsets over and over again. It's beautiful. Thank you for all the birthday messages and I will hug you all with this emoticon that I definitely don't overuse: :hug:

   Seriously, thank you. I will resume waiting for the delivery guy to deliver the birthday pizza. BYe!

HI! So you've found the page of a 15 year old, British girl. CONGRATS! I sorta fangirl over video games like Bioshock Infinite (best game in the *MULTIPLE* ALTERNATE UNIVERSES), Sherlock, Doctor who and all things nerdy. I love gaming youtubers and I write A LOT (when I can with all these GCSEs to worry about). You will find mostly poetry in this here land of DA, but if you wanna see some oneshot/fic sorta thang then head on over to my main tumblr account ( You won't regret it, I promise *commence nervous smile*.

Angel my dear, I'm overjoyed that you have decided to add my own little story to your favorites. With summer around the corner, I will have a notably large amount of free time. Just for you, I will finish chapter three after being on the drawing board for too long. Then, I will begin work immediately for a fourth chapter. May the winds of support and encouragement be at both our backs.

Aw thank you!!! Your story is so good, that I cannot even express it in words. I'm telling you. You've got me hooked. I'll certainly be looking forward to seeing the chapters you post and I want to say how amazing a writer you are. In summer, I will be studying like crazy, but your story will be occupying my breaks because gosh, the government are trying to kill me with exams. Maybe it was their plan all along. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO scared.... "the 2nd" Heart
