it is not over
you left me with this nightmare
“sorry” could not work

as a child i loved
last year i was terrorized
today i am gone

i will move on now -
leave the ghosts and memories
flit away, bird-like

when you search for me
see my beauties and meanings
i made all myself

Addiction to this
Way of life, this country pride,
While others love it

Hurray, Super Bowl!
Gonna eat some Super Soup
With my Super Spoon

Everyone's wishing
For their team to win and for
Wardrobe malfunctions

Time for the big game
There better be enough room
This thing is massive

Under the bright lights
Aggressive man hugs in tights
Spectator delights

Wind blows...trees quiver
Dry leaves disconnect...fall, and
Fly by the window

Some cling to the glass
Some get blown farther away
Ground is wet, but brown

Fine shower falls on
Coffee with RumChata waits
It's cold at the porch...

You can't love me i
Know this feeling all too well
When the heart reaches

Out for someone so
Perfect in your clouded eyes
That you'll do what they

Say in a heartbeat
But love is a drug and
You were my rehab place

So i know that you
Can't love me at all, 'cause
In my heart there is

No space for myself
Let alone someone else so
You cannot love me,

Eyes hidden in words
Death is the outcome.

Watch my expression
Suicide eyes
The rope is too thin.

And every little word
Delves deep inside
I feel everyone.

I deserve flowers and wine
Tiny thoughts
And gentle hymns.

I'm sad and unhappy
I know why
People are everywhere.

Thoughts many, words few.
I must write. What should I do?
I’ll write a haiku!

Or maybe write two?
About what? I have no clue!
I’ll write about you!

Cold hands, warm heart means
I have an instant ice pack
Wherever I go

I don't mind the rain
Sixty degrees and misty
Is perfect weather

People know about
Corned beef and Guinness, but not
The lamb stews and tea

Long walks are the best
Both medieval city streets
And grassy green hills

And I know that there
Is a definite difference
In types of tubers

Irish potatoes are floury, whereas American potatoes are waxy.

Thirty percent, that's
The number of high schoolers
Who are depressive

Not to mention those
With eating disorders, who
Are too pushed aside

With anxiety,
Where teens are told to "calm down",
It doesn't look good

Add some drugs in there
Underage drinking, smoking
Pills and shooting up

Add it all up, and
At least half of the school is
Batshit insane now

I'm starting to think
That we might need to rethink
How we treat students

Because when most of
A group has mental problems
When most students would

Rather cut themselves
Rather get high or wasted
Rather starve themselves

Rather hide their fear
Rather sneak out and run off
Rather kill themselves

Than go to a school
Than maybe the school is part
of the bigger cause

When a system makes
Most of its users insane
Its shut down like that

But when schools do it
We don't bat an eye, and we
Don't even change it

But maybe its time
That we fix the cause of this
And change our high schools

Cultivating right
Speech, like weeding one's garden:
One has dirty hands.
