Blindly

I jumped without looking

I gave it all without thinking

The consequences, I took them all

Even when he wouldn’t return my call

I poured it all, not knowing the difference between love and infatuation

I screamed my lungs out without hesitation

And my poor soul suffered from the complication

I ended up, my heart decapitated

Even when I knew it was for naught, I still expected

Half hoping

Half expecting

That’s what it felt like

Onion Skin

Onion skin, onion ring, what good could you possibly bring?

I peel off each set of skin and I watch them all fall

They fall to the ground but they do not decay

I hear them cry and scream in fear

But I continue on

I remove the skins as if removing a suit of armor

Difficult, tight, not easy

 

Happy I am to get rid of them

Yet my eyes sweat the salty waters

I continue to remove them but oh it hurts me so

Still I know what I must do

 

The onion skin reveals a face

A face that’s strange to me

Hidden for so long that familiarity has flown out the window

Remove them slowly and let them all fall

The time to show the real me

Has come at long last

 

Goodbye onion skin

Farewell to thee

I shed and peel them off despite the sting

left on my new set of skin

Ghastly

there is something lurking in silence

a strange presence that makes your hair

stand on end

 

you try to scream but nothing

you lost your voice

all you can do is stare

 

you look for words to describe

whatever it is that you see

it’s something….horrible

 

it’s nasty, maybe creepy

you know that it’s scary

“Oh my!”, you scream, it’s just too ghastly
