Being the outsider

It is hot outside,
Burning me with every touch
My heart is still frozen,
Scared and broken.

I shake and shudder,
At every gust of wind,
Not because there’s a chill,
but the warmth that fills.

What if I blend in,
become one of them,
Then they take all they gave,
Leaving me with just a wave

To Belong

For now, I can stay
Be a part and feel the sway,
But then one day,
I will no longer belong, no longer feel that way.

But this won’t last,
With time passing so fast,
Every passing day a real blast,
Soon enough, I will be the outcast.

That is not the tragedy,
As long as I remember that part of me,
To not belong is one thing,
When you don’t see that, it stings!

An Ending

She pulled the knife from her chest and smiled. “Was that supposed to hurt?” She was not bleeding, she laughed like madness was the only reason left.

He stared at her scared and frantic but he could not move. He was petrified by her glare. In her eyes, he saw himself hurting her. Raping her and hitting as she screamed and begged him to stop. He tried to look away or close his eyes but he had no control. Her eyes locked into his did not blink either, his eyes started to water. Her steel gray eyes remain clear and focused.

Suddenly she threw her head back and laughed, breaking eye contact, thus releasing him. “Enjoyed the show,” she said still laughing. He was shaking with fear, shrinking back into a corner as she stepped closer. “Stay away from me,” he gasped backing away from her.

Her laughter stopped as she looked into his eyes, freezing him in the spot yet again. She leaned in her hand reaching for his throat, menace blazing in her eyes. Her black hair flowing and moving, her eyes not blinking, her lips curled into a smile as his face turned red then purple. His eyes bloodshot as his body slumped. She blinked and pulled away, the smile disappeared from her face.

The morning he was found on the ground 10 floors below his apartment. His chest caved in and his skull cracked open. The window in his room shattered as if someone had run right through it.
