i have been blessed,
and oh baby
you’re my kind of man.
you drive me crazy,
and you’re driving me mad.
i’m fine with it, it’s no hassle at all.
as long i can be with you,
when it’s just the two of us.
i want you
and i need you to show me your world;
show me your paradise,
take me there, baby.

Wasn't the holiday with her enough?
You had to up and show your smug.
You make it a point to dot all my eyes.
Simply hanging out for a holiday fun.
Playing ring toss and I'm still winning.
Not phasing noise on my boys arm.
All lame poetry you'll pen yet again.
Ask her to do my famous pen trick.
She'll give you short end of the stick.
My mom asked if you might be coming.
I replied, "he now has a new dumpster."
So ill from your rhetoric this winter.
You're out numbered by multiple lies.
Keep thinking she's so talented of all.
No hero, no zero, I'll wait tables til I die.
Wait for that blow job gone with the wind.

Russia has a new weapon,
Talking to you is the closest I'll ever be to heaven.
Eleven minus seventeen is six, in case you didn't know
I'm aware I'm making no sense but I don't care so...

Hot tea, singing MC
to myself, as I day dream
17 more days,
16 more nights

until I will feel him, hugging me tight.

or is it negative six?

Don't ask me...

On this day
I stared at my hands more than I ever did
and the red seemed much more vibrant than before.
I saw hope and death written on each one respectively.
I held back tears as I contemplated what this all could mean.
I held back tears as I contemplated what this all could mean.
On another day
I hid my eyes away in hopes that I could slowly disappear,
so maybe I couldn't cause myself or anyone else anymore grief.
I felt perfectly demolished inside like a perfect little storm.
I held back tears as I was contemplating if this meant anything.
I held back tears as I was contemplating if this life meant anything.

You could very well
be the thing that I've been dying for.
We'll never know if I start to slow down,
if I miss out and strike out.
They always say that you
shouldn't close a book before you finish it,
they say that you haven't lived
until you find your reason for it.
I'm just so tired of waiting you see,
the darker shades of life have leaked into me.
I've started losing the grip in my left hand
as my right grabs my neck.
If you're coming, I'd appreciate it if it was sooner
and if you're coming, then I hope that you come soon.

My cigarette burnt lips have so much to say,
Under this roof on a majestic night we lay,
Storms and clouds might as well be in our way,
Stars will fall short wherever they may,
Believe that the ocean will wash the pain away,
For you're the magnificent star that lights my day.
Oh, how I hope forever with me you'll stay.
You're my religion, you're how I pray.

you're my sun you're my moon, you're the softest hour of noon.
you're the dark you're the light, you're all that's in my sight.
the grass and the trees, the hum of distant bees.
you're the air that i breathe and the weakening of my knees.
you're the sky and the stars and a wish flung afar.
you're a laugh you're a sigh you're the photons in my eye.
you're a word to an ear, you are love you are fear.
you're some cats you're some mats,
you're milk curd you're my lack of words.

Breathe in your death.
Death, you're in. Breathe.
You're in. Breathe, death.
In breath. You are death.

I stopped having nightmares & started daydreaming.
As I stepped off the ledge to fall head first into this dormant abyss.
Lucky me, I ate black bird feathers, and started growing wings.
It's easier done than said.
I woke up to a stranger to myself.
Like riddles in form of DNA strands.
My thoughts shape shifting.
so I never know what to say when someone starts to ask
"How you been"

Today I realized
Why we never worked.

The problem was, you were
The only good thing in my life.

When the rest of my life was in shambles,
You were the only good I found everyday.

You took advantage of that.
Because I gave you my all.

But your life, your life was good;
I was just an extra piece of the puzzle.

When you realized that I didn't fit;
You just passed me off because I wasn't

The problem was my life.
I thought you were my life, because I needed
You to be my life.

Too much was going wrong.
Too much was fucked up.
But you were perfect
To me.

The problem was always me.
Me; and my horrible life.

As if, by a skinny chance in Hell,
It was hope.
The crispy morning dew of acid rain;
Detrimental to being but oh, how marvelous…
And pungent…

Increase intake.

Hoping for a brief pause;
A chance to hear out the grieving widow,
Pleading for just action!
Remorse! Reparations!! Decency!!!
Anything at all to pacify, or, at the very least,
Distract the ghostly vultures waiting to pick her psyche clean.
But, shamefully,
Rather than empathy,
Cries of the doomed were abandoned.
Gassed by the blurred in arrogance.

To no one’s surprise,
A sudden, haunting crescendo.
Revealing a glance through the pupils of madness.
But unfortunately,

Breach in protocol!
Intake at maximum capacity!
Danger! High risk of exposure!


On the contrary.
False alarm.
Stabilizing… Evening out…
Risk receding…

Threat identified.
Screams of the doomed neutralized.

Although, vision still seems a bit blurry….
Could really use new lenses,
Or at least some snazzy frames.
But for some laughs, while we wait…

Commence intake.
