The Path Alone

The Path Alone

A Poem by Moth Phoenix


Arms out by my side, and my eyes open wide. 

Bleeding these tears that keep me alive, I feel the aches and pains. 

My head is numb and my mind speaks a thousand words,

don’t release me from my chains. I sit here and think, ponder, and tell,

while I walk the black forest, and just wander. 

An endless path I see no end, but a light, a light over the horizon,

one more push cause I’m still tryin. 

The tress are black and they hug me close, another mark is that I’ve chose. 

I drink the moon in and listen to the wind, but somehow I can’t, can’t understand my thoughts. 

I scream, but nothing comes. I talk but only lies escape. 

Am I horrible? Beaten down  and bloody? 

No honey, wake up, and learn you’re worth more. 

I cut



but sometimes

It's been a rough week, so I felt like I needed to get some feelings "on paper"

I'm the most angelically demonic girl you will ever meet. I'm rarely on here, but now that I've gotten back into the swing of things, I'll probably lurk a lot more. more..
