It’s easier to
Explain situations
By describing
Them in metaphors
Instead of saying
What it really is.


She’s the light.

She’s like the Brightness settings in my iphone.
Bright is equivalent to her.
Now you may have judged that this is a good thing,
But it’s the complete opposite.
You know how you’re used to the dim light?
Once you shift the screen to a brighter light..
Your eyes twitch and eyebrows meet.
Your eyes is harmed by the sight.
That’s how i perceive her.
Something that irritates my every sense,
Not only my sight.

Satisfied with Pain

Why is it easier to live
When i see you suffocate?
Observing your pale skin
And nerves nicely thickening..
You try to breath
And I.. I stand there
Inhaling.. Aggressively.
Watching your eyes widen
With horror.
For a while,
I have been
Satisfied with pain. With your pain.

The answer
To the original question,
Is that..
You’ve never showed me
But weakness.
You have made it easier to endure.
It’s not that I enjoy seeing you suffer, like they judged
But you’ve implemented it
Within me
As a bad habit.

Escape.. To Nothingness.

As i sit here in the Brotherton’s library,
I escape reality
To enter a world of .. Nothingness.
-not fantasy. No, that’s similar to reality.
Nothingness is simpler.
It’s about.. Just pausing there.
It’s the time between taking your breath and releasing it again.
It’s the interval between one eye blink to the other.

Imagine how many times I’ve escaped reality.. Do the math.
