“Writing helps us discover who we truly are”

Matty Shreds

Writing is the only place that allows me to truly escape. Despite the evident absence of joyousness within it, it helps free my mind from the darkness that consumes me.

In a world where fabricated strength is the epitome of what “mass appeal” looks like, I’m comfortable being an outsider—ironically, it’s one of the only aspects of life that actually makes me feel happy; an oddity, yet a notable idiosyncrasy of mine.

The moon is in my eyes, with a world that’s chasing the sun 

Her dauntless mien, is absent from love.
Pity surrounds the surface of her demeanour.
Her gloomy expression,
makes you uneasy at sight.
How can you tell someone,
to be someone else,
if you’re not even a someone,
to someone else, yourself?

guardian of the dead

The clock is ticking

We’ll soon be dead,
in a casket to rot

emotional relapse

I don’t know what to feel
Is this relapse temporary?
Or is this love for real?

THE MARTYR

These trees scream liar,
while you preach love
Yet you chose the martyr
& what it dies of..

CARPE NOCTEM

I’m lost in a dream,
& not the good kind,
It’s the one where you scream,
& it fucks with your mind

BEFORE I JUMP

Before I jump, I want you to see
All of the things that you did to me
Not in person, or in visual form
I will write you the literary storm
