A church of Echos

Why is no one listening to me

Screams the child in the church pew

Grandfathers hand down their top

And grandmothers over their mouth

Mom and dad standing at the opposite ends

Trying not to listen to the shouts

But that is not what gave the room pause

Over there sits a little boy with a gun in his lap

And rewards on his jacket

Drawing up a dagger and slicing into a peer

Color coded lettering screaming

Why is no one listening

But move the camera preacher man

Over there you’ll see

A girl squating over pill bottles chocking them down with ease

Shitting out insta likes

As the wolves paw at her feet

The shacking of the pills bottles gives a signal

As hands reach to spread her knees

Why is no one listening to me

Down the asle lies a bible

Covered in well wishes and kisses

Thumbs up with well intentions

It holds the congregations attention

As the preacher man walks by

with gleam in his eye

Giving twisted smile to the lost boys

And waving at the confused girls

Praising the mothers and fathers

Only to step past the blooded child

Healing vibes.

Share a story that has hurt you.

Something that ripped you to tiny piece and made it as though you didn’t not think you would survive.

Share that story, leave out no details, because I have a feeling this will help you heal.

Realize how much you have conqured.

The painful memories you can’t bear to hold.

Just let them go.

Share me a story if your deepest fear. Tell it all and leave out no details.

We need to see we are not alone.

Wake up a little later Pt2

Did you remember to smile today?

Place it gently on your face

Take a breathe

This is your chance

Make a believe 

It’s all in the past

Did you remember to smile today

As you clasp them in a blood filled embrace

Smile brightly 

Never let it go

Cause when you are gone

Your smile is all they will know
Bully me for a fee 

Don’t worry

I won’t tell the others of how you  made me bleed

I will hide it and let you smile

Beat me break me

They won’t know

Your smile is all they need to go on

Liars game 

Church halls fill

Pretending that your smile was real
~ He was so kind

Never a bad word

Always helpful

How could he go

He loved his wife

His children to

Such a sad place to me

Oh darling..so sorry for you~

They don’t know

They never will

Did you remember to smile today

Plaster it all over your bloody face

Don’t worry dear

These truths I would never spill

 Sealed inside me

Always silent 

Cause your smile

Was always so blinding.
