No one caresNo one cares
Why should you try
Why should you care
When no one is listening
And no one is there
Why should you try
When you're all alone
What's there to say
When you're on your own
No one is out there
No one cares
Yet you still sit down
And say your prayers
You want them to listen
You want them to care
But no one does
It's really unfair
What will you do now
As you stare at the knife
Do you really have the courage
To take your own life?
"Maybe I'll say my prayers one more time..."
Because I was BoredI was bored.
So I took a knife,
The one my mother uses to slice tomatoes,
And cut open my chest just to see
What it would be like to die.
It wasn't so bad.
I saw my grandfather again.
He introduced me to my
To my great-great-grandfather
And to my great-great-great-grandfather
Who had a bridge named after him.
But hanging around with old people,
Including my great-grandmother who was quite strict
And who constantly reminded me
That children should not speak unless spoken to,
Was even more boring.
So I left the place
And woke up on the kitchen floor.
My mother saw the mess I had made
And began with a long series of rebukes.
I picked up the blood-stained knife
And cut open my mother's chest
Just to see what it would be like to kill someone.
Well, I was bored.
I call out louder then necessary.
I grew the habit while living here, giving Sherlock time to snap out of what ever he is doing to adjust himself to my presence.
Though its going to be eleven Month tomorrow that we are now living together and though all our cases and hunts we went trough, I know that he still isn't all used to my existing around him.
Or at least that's the first thing coming to my mind being screamed at or insulted at many occasions.
Oh and of course, I'm trying to avoid occasional bullets and acids.
By now I know each and every part of the flat like myself, so I'm spotting the wet stinking mess on the floor while hanging up my jacket without looking.
"There is vomit on the floor ..."
I mumble to myself for a second.
"Why is there vomit on the floor, Sherlock?!"
While already thinking about how to clean up that mess I look around for him.
There is no sign of my flatmate.
And no answer.
And as so often this sickish feeling starts buil

BoredI'm sitting at home, once again
Wondering if this day will ever end
I've done all the housework, I have no more chores
And I'm starting to realize my life is a bore
I've vacuumed the carpets, I've washed all the floors
I've dusted the shelves, and I've cleaned the glass doors
The cats have been combed, the toys put away
Seriously God, will there be an end to this day?
I've done all the laundry for the entire home
I've sewn all the things that need to be sewn
All the trash it out, not a stray paper in sight
And all the dishes have been put away for the night
Mother has no needs, she's resting in her chair
And the rest of the house looks incredibly bare
And as I sit down and plug in the computer cored
I realize in my head, I'm incredibly bored
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
