Sugar Coated Mistakes

Sugar Coated Mistakes

A Poem by Aliciaa Gay.

Terrifying imagery

Morals decay

Look into my past

Skeletons come out to play

Nightmare after nightmare

Sharing my plight

Never looking past

What is wrong and what is right


Adolescent imagery

Jacked up with a knife

Never not knowing

It was to save a life

Learn from my past

Mistakes I’ve made

Your not alone

You will be saved


Words form like velvet

Across your ears

Telling you what you want

Killing you with despair

Tithing’s of messages

Long unplayed

Looking up

Face a new day


Sugar coat is like records

They play in the night

Endless battle

Who controls your life

Energetic meetings

Discussions hold tears

Think back now

Who drove you here


Endless longings

Hold no trace

You are not afraid

Take it all in

Learn from my mistakes

Author's Note

Aliciaa Gay.
"I know your life is empty And you hate to face this world alone So you're searching for an angel Someone who can make you whole I can not save you I can't even save myself So just save yourself I know that you've been damaged Your soul has suffered such abuse But I am not your savior I am just as fucked as you (I am just as fucked as you) I can not save you I can't even save myself So just save yourself "-Stabbing Westward
