He closed his eyes & let go of his hatred.
He closed his mouth & listened to the quiet world, that surrounded him.
He opened his heart & took off his shoes.
That day, he walked the Earth with bare feet.
He stared upon the sky & earth, realizing that he & it were one.
He stares into the mirror. Unable to recognize the man, who looks back at him. The joke. Dreary eyed, the skin of his eyelids so thin, they appear transparent. His lips stretched and black, form a smile curling to the tips of his ear lobes. His eerie laugh transitions from laughter to a painful screech, lastly fading into a soft distorted whimper. He knows that he must wipe his tears. “The show must go on.” He muttered. He applies the chalk white powder onto his already dried, lifeless skin. Smearing black circles around his eyes and red paint onto his lips. He smiles, remembering a time when his teeth were not rotten and his spirit was youthful, filled with life and passion. Those days are long gone now. A red curtain behind him is all that lies between him and the act. He exits onto the stage, filled with fraudulent laughter. The audience loves it, but does he?
i hate boys
some make me feel like im not wanted
some make me feel like a toy
some think my soul doesn’t add up with the body that my spirit decided to enjoy
some think im a weirdo, they’re right i am
some are intimidated, they run away because they are scared
some no matter how much i do, don’t seem to care
some want me physically
none want me spiritually
so ill hate boys until the death of me
I wonder what it’s like to meet a Man.
Your veins so close to the surface, that is your skin
Wet clay, splattered all over your black apron and white T-shirt, carefully placed on your hands face
I watch your hands, as you select your clay
High fire, low fire
Your hands form the mold
Your mind feeds my curiosity
You see, it wasn’t your face I fell for, nor your words
It was your hands and your ability to take nothing and create something, that could make me feel
Feel every emotion, that ever existed
All at once
