"The Voices in the Dark"
Many months have passed since the Apocalypse, and Haley Adams is bored.
As Haley is the only survivor left on Earth (besides the demons that hide in the shadows, always just out of sight), and most electronics and books were damaged by the Atomic-Magnet bombs humanity used to destroy the Robots, there just wasn’t much she could do to entertain herself.  
All she had was her family’s old cassette recorder and a package of blank tapes that somehow survived The Reckoning that followed The Great Robot Genocide, so Haley finds herself recording the audio of her day and playing the tapes throughout the night just to have something to do.
While the tapes first started as just homemade “talk shows” where she pretended to interview herself about how great she is at surviving the Apocalypse, upon playback of the recordings she’d often hear voices hidden in the dead air… and they were trying to talk to her.
Most of the voices were demons attempting to scare her with heavy breathing and growling, but seeing as she just survived the Apocalypse as a 9 year old, Haley didn’t frighten very easily.  The demons were more annoying than scary.
Every so often, when non-demonic voices from the beyond could dimly be heard on the cassette tapes, Haley would attempt to engage them in conversation… BUT, the process of recording the dead air, listening back to the hours of tape to find the stray hidden voices mixed in with the static, and then asking a follow-up question was inherently inefficient.
It gave her something to do, though, so Haley didn’t mind.
Usually, the voices were lost and confused souls who didn’t realize they were dead and needed to be told that they died in the Apocalypse.  Haley relished this task, as it gave her a sense of purpose… something she had struggled with since becoming confident she was the only human who survived.
However, after several months of the same slow conversations with discombobulated disembodied voices, Haley found herself getting frustratingly bored again.  She absentmindedly hits play on the recording she just made in the children’s morgue, expecting another tedious day of saving souls, when instead she is greeted by the melodic laughter of a young child.
Perking up instantly, Haley takes delight in something new finally happening and listens intently as the distant childish giggling becomes a song— 
"I’m dead we’re dead and you’ll be tooOn your family’s souls we chewYour mother screams in pain each nightBecause you were able to survive the blightYour baby brother is boiled blueSkinned alive because of youCry and die and be with usNo more boredom, no more fussHa-ha-ha-ha-ha…! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha… !”
The song and maniacal laughter repeats for 90 minutes before the play button POPS up, having reached the end of the cassette. 
Haley pauses, sighs annoyedly, and rewinds the tape to use again.

Leave me not, love.

Hold me, hold me tight.
Clutch me like you knot a tie.
Show me, show me light.
Dark blind am I in my own lies;
Luck still clungs on my seared flesh
Should you heal my distorted faith.
Savor me in your holiness,
For this savaged man is vagrant as fated.

Hold me,
Hold me, love.
Don’t let me go
Like I did to Lord above.
Cradle me,
Cradle me, my only light.
For you are the only one
To pull me out of my blight.

poeticallydepressed:

I stare at the sky and feel the breeze twirl
While beneath me I feel the ground unfurl
With this drink in hand, I begin to float
But my heart sinks lower, anchoring this boat
I’ve lost all reasons, and I’ve lost all ties
It’s hard to remember what are the truths and what are the lies
My…

"Alone"
"Alone"

Like the raven from a poem
The heart beats this venom

"Alone"
"Alone"

Please leave
Please go
Just leave me alone

"Alone"
"Alone"

I know I’m alone
I’ve tried for years!
She may have liked me once
But now there’s just tears

"Alone"
"Alone"

I know

How do you know you’re in love?

—COMMON:

Man, I know I’m in love when I think about her a lot and I’m finding ways to get to that person. Even though I gotta work, even though I gotta take care of other responsibilities, I’m like yo, when am I gonna fly out and see that person? I look forward to seeing them.

—KENDRICK LAMAR:

How do you know you’re in love? When your heart feels it instead of your mind and your penis don’t. You know, it’s deeper than that… That’s when you know.

—PETE ROCK:

Oh man you feel it right here, *touches heart*, right there, it’s like cupid’s shooting you in the heart, that shit’s just BOOW! Lots of people say they don’t believe in love at first sight, but I do, it’s happened to me.

—A$AP ROCKY:

You know you in love cuz you don’t want nobody else but that person. You know, that’s how you know for sure. Like you could see a million other bad bitches, but you know, but it don’t even matter, you stuck.

—BIG BOI:

Your heart flutters a little bit, you like to kiss on the mouth a lot, your neck get hot when you kiss on the mouth, that type of stuff. Stuff like that, yea.

—QUESTLOVE:

I THINK WHEN THAT PERSON CONSUMES YOU.
