Words And Skin“Words&Skin”Words And Skin by tribble-of-doom
The words dribble from your mouth like a faulty faucet in the middle of the night. Sheepish and quiet but impossible to ignore, somehow clearly audible through the entirety of the house, even past this pillow I squeeze over my face to block it out. That droning, drooling, drip, drip, drip. Makes my skin just crawl, all I want to do is sleep. I tried to fix you myself, god knows I tried, but I don’t know how you work, I can’t see where you’re broken, and I don’t have the patience to learn. It’s someone else’s turn now. Call the fucking plumber.
“Today will be different.”
A promise. If you ever knew me, you’d know I hate those. I hate how pretty they are, I hate that fine, delicate glass they form in. How they shatter so easily and send razor sharp shrapnel careening through the air when they do. Cutting me and cutting you and sticking in my foot, you know it hurt to trust for years last time? Every time I ste

There is a weight
You asked me to hold.
(Just for a while,
Just for a while.)
My tendons strain and snap,
I lack your Atlas strength.
The crushing force of gravity
Makes me weak, makes me sore.
Take it back, take it back,
But you’ve gone away.
I’m sinking down, I’m sinking down.
The water rises to my throat.
Pushing down, rising up
Drowning and drowning and drowning.
Take it back, please take it back,
Where have you gone?
I’m pinned beneath this weight,
With water to my nose.
My lungs fill up with salt,
Choking and screaming and breathing
Only freezing thickness of water.
Where is that mild friend oxygen?
Where has he gone?
My stinging eyes are blind here.
I cannot to escape, unwilling
To shed this leaden snare
Wherein I dwell confined.
I grip it tightly.
Surely I will die,
Sweet air has left my blood
I lay back and let black water take me,
Frozen fingers loosen on Your weight.
And all at once
it falls away
I watch i
Hey, I'm Maddy.|
I'm tribbleofdoom over on le youtube where I animate a show about wolves and a variety of other fluffy creatures so if that piques your interest, you can mosey on over there.
As far as the about me dealio goes, I'm pretty dull. That won't stop me from going on about myself for an hour, however.
I love me some Power Metal, Pagan Metal, alternative and indie moosic. I'm a ridiculously over-the-top fan of Bioware games (KotOR, Dragon Age: Origins, The Mass Effect Trilogy etc) but I love pretty much any RPG I can get my hands on.
I'm a huge fan of Star Trek, Farscape, Battlestar, Red Dwarf and all other sci-fi ever. Duplicitous as ever, Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones are also things I will devour with the hunger of a thousand ravenous wolves. Also, Avatar cartoons because shut up.
My favorite book is Harold and Maude and you should read it.
I'm an exceedingly shy individual, I get tongue tied easily, and I'm always sleepy.
I want to work in the film industry, and I've gotten into a program for screenwriting at university, so hopefully I'll end up with a job doing that. Preferably for TV. Because that'd be pretty sweet.
My goals in life include: Writing and publishing at least one book, living in New Zealand, traveling the world, skydiving, not dying until I'm old.
Say hi if you feel inclined. I don't bite. Unless you are made of chocolate. In which case I do bite. Sorry.
Narcissistic rant out.
