ASYLUMAsylum:ASYLUM by WordOfChen
I scrape my hands upon the ground,
Staring at my cell.
I wonder why I'm trapped inside,
This vivid living hell.
I've heard the voices calling out,
Maybe they're in my head...
I wonder where my cell-mates are,
Maybe they are dead...
Time has no meaning in this place,
Nor does the word of day and night,
The food is simply human flesh,
It will give you quite a fright...
Upon a chair they strap me down,
They open my eyes and make me shiver,
They pull out a scalpel and many knives,
The sight alone, it makes me quiver.
They inject me with a strange chemical,
The world does fade to black.
I wake up in my cell again,
And hear the sound clink-clack!
Lo, they left the door unlocked,
Unhinged it's time for freedom.
Release me from this horrid prison,
It is a place devoid of reason!
Demons chase me in the halls,
A laughing chef with a chainsaw calls.
It splutters and thirsts for my blood of life,
But I'd rather die by the kitchen knife!

I was just a grain of sand, a water droplet swallowed up in the ocean of fabricated feelings and shredded paper, dyed red and pink and bleeding down the worn, yellowed walls of my high school.
It was was a week before Valentine's Day.
I was miserable.
The paper hearts, the pantomimed feelings, they were all too much. It was as if Saint Valentine was laughing in my face, mocking me in my loneliness it was as if someone wanted to watch me fail that day.
I caught myself staring at you as you passed me in the halls.
Help. I have done it again.
I didn't even see Daniel's fist until it connected with my jaw.
I heard his friends laugh.
Pain surged through me, bone cracking as I fell into the lockers.
I have been here many times before.
I watched in silence as he strode u
Kiss and ControlIn the end, you're just another stain in my tainted life, another season, here and gone. Evanescent. You are always with me, but never in my life.Kiss and Control by AutumnForAlways
I wonder if you remember me.
I remember you, of course.
Your eyes. Your laugh. The way you smiled at me that night as we watched the stars turn into nothing, fading into the soft warmth of morning. You blushed and smiled as you called me your angel, your love, your one and only.
I thought you meant it. I thought you loved me.
"City lights like rain dance and explode, fall upon debutantes ."
Winter came quickly that year, smothering the lights of the city under a veil of numbing white. I still thought you loved me then, and I strived to make you happy. I offered you all I had...I offered you my beautifully flawed heart, and diamonds of ice to lace your delicate, pale skin. I offered you my home...I offered you a ring, and I offered you a promise that I should've known you wouldn't keep.
You promised to love me, in sickness and hea
