Numb Like 2 Days of…

April, 2006

Numb, like 2 days of cheap vodka and lortabs.


These feelings have been repressed for to long.


I am angry that I have kept them bottled up.


I am going to show true feelings and emotions from now on.


I am bitter from memories of my past.


I am angry at my mother for allowing these memories to be real.


I am embaressed by my actions that come from lack of self-control.


I am hurt becuase I have hurt those I love.


I am scared that I will never have a stable mind.


I am sad that I cannot fix all that is wrong.


I am regretful of more things than I can count.


I am vunerable from all the hurt and anger.


I am weak because I need someone to lean on.


I am a litle girl with so much wrong and all alone.

author bio:

My name is Alisha Poff. I grew up in Bluefield WV. I’ve always loved to write. Pretty much since I learned how to. I wrote alot of short stories when I was younger. I won a few awards for them. One being the Young Writer’s when I was in 3rd grade. I started writing poetry when I was 13. After I read my first Edgar Allen Poe poem. My main influence is Sylvia Plath. I love her style and her words speak to me. My inspiration comes from my life. I write about everything that has happened to me. The good, the bad, and the ugly. I find it makes for good writing and release. I’m currently in college working towards a journalism degree. In my free time I enjoy laying the tarot, a bit of ghost hunting, and spending time with my loved ones. I practice Wicca. I also spend most of my time reading and of course writing.

The Days of Reality TV

April, 2006

my make-up is smeared


my hair is in knots


sweat covers my body


my innocence is lost


you put on your shoes


rush me away


call the next day


to see that I’m ok


I’ll say I’m fine


what a divine lie


how long will I hide


deep down inside


the woman who screams


let me be free

Bound by the Opression of Love

April, 2006

Bound by the opression of love.


The tortures, unsympathetic mind you posess.


Constant, consistent, rejections fill you with the color of happiness.


Red, blue, green.


You keep me shackled to you, close enough, like a watchful hawk’s eye.


But far enough that the taste of sweet honey is denied.


Fighting through the incoherentness that is you.


Only leads back to the illusion of who you were supposed to be.

A Moment of Happiness

April, 2006

Completely unexpected


Sitting upon your lap


My eyes meet yours


There is a smile upon my face


Something silly and unimporant is spoken


Laughter comes

3 A.M.

April, 2006

Sleep doesn’t come on this chilly fall night.


I sit, eyes wide open, wandering the room.


I watch the smoke exit my mouth.


My thoughts are of you.


Moods in grey and black.


Your silencer is on.


Back, back to where we are.


Always the same.


You will smile sweetly and kiss goodnight.


Sleep doesn’t come on this chilly fall night.
