    A Poem By otaku.poet
    When the first rays of sun hit the light of the ground
    All were asleep, all with no sound
    One loner stood in the midst of midnight
    Walked these empty walls without a fright
    Then to jaunt home, with no sound at all
    Twas the night before the self brawl
    The world is adorned with many mysteries indeed
    So why must humankind seem to bleed?
    She begins to speak, but loud silence comes out
    She does not mean to whisper, she means to shout
    So why must the words be hushed, without a peep?
    And why does my life feel six feet deep?
    Spacious, desolated, abandoned
    What I want is just a trustworthy companion
    So what shall I do, what to say?
    New lies, new poisons, new everyday
    So let us go into her room and take a look
    Let us adorn a new story, create a new book
    She brushes her hair, making curls that bounce
    Acquire some friends to show off and announce
    Put on a dress, a pretty one with bows
    It looks very beautiful, that which she knows
    Adorn a new necklace, interspersed with pearls
    Wear pretty shoes, that like a girls
    Shower your hands with bangles and bracelets
    Pull on some leggings with decorative laces
    Adorn yourself with all the lies you can get
    Force a smile, don't let them see you upset
    Make your eyes twinkle with delight
    Go and hide all the widened fright
    Laugh and joke and play with them all
    Act like you would be big and tall
    Even if you feel lonely and small
    You began to fake before you began to crawl
    Throw away all your worries, your fakes
    Stop everything pull on the brakes
    Do you understand others and their stories?
    Do you understand these innocent quarries?
    No, you do not, so stop laughing and "joking"
    Even when they smile, they seem to be choking
    Find this in them, and just sit aside
    Let them have some happiness, let them have some pride
    Because they have none, they erase themselves from this world
    Their brilliant plumage everyday they have furled
    They adorn thy selves with their fake smiles
    Everyday, all days, they feel like trials
    So take away all their adorned
    And push away all the thorns.
