I’m Cole,

I’m just your typical gay writer looking for what I have lost in the world.

I’m letting life kick my ass and making myself get back up so I can keep moving forward.

I let my life bleed out through my short stories and poetry.

Sirens, Love, and Bullshit

I was shattered, everything torn from me like a new toy getting pulled away from a child because they did something wrong. Was I that child getting that toy taken away? What did I do wrong? Is it fixable? More questions I couldn’t answer.

Corrupted by Love

Lost, alone, and dead is all you’ll ever feel inside because that, my dear, is the price you’ll pay if you seek love or a happy ending.

Cold, Dark Room

There is this cold, dark room.
Inside that cold, dark room is a window.
A window that only looks out into the distance of nothingness.
Outside that window, is nothing but a gloomy emptiness and all you can hear is the heavy pitter patter of the rain,
Violently hitting against the glass.

Hello My Darkness

Sex is supposed to feel liberating,
Passionate…
Showing that vulnerability.
Making love should feel like it will last for eternity.

Defeating Demons

I was young, gullible…
I fell into the trap love can have, 
Not knowing the damages that lie ahead of me.
Those damages led to so much pain;
Mentally, physically, & emotionally.

Fool Me Once Shame On Me…

Because now that I have found purpose in this life,
More than just my blood on a knife.
Now I can finally say,
That these scars will fade and fade away.
Fool me once shame me once shame on me,
But fool me twice and now I know it was never meant to be.

Second Chances

Suffering this PTSD alone, I gave up on myself. 
I feel the blood leave my veins and the life start to fade. 
Vaguely hearing ambulance sirens, faintly seeing lights.

Broken First Love

Broken First Love

She was the ringmaster. 
And our love was an act. 
Constantly pulling hearts strings I gave her. 
I played her puppet, jokester, and was the main act.
