Like exclamation marks!

Sleep depravation leads to many fun things,
Like commas,
And sea dragons,
And low self esteem,

Being happy leads to several exciting things!
Like exclamation marks!
And dolphins!
And a sexually transmitted disease!

Anger leads to lots of frustrating things.
Like periods.
And humans.
And bullets handed out for free.

So with all these great feelings, creating such magic!
How in the world could life be so tragic.

Oh noble exclamation mark!

Oh noble exclamation mark!
I expel! I exclaim!
Oh most excitable exclamation mark!


Oh, to see you
sends blood racing
in my veins!
Oh, I love you
once!
twice!!
and I love you thrice!!!!
- oh, was that four times????
Oh, be not jealous
I brought in your
distant relative
the crooked and deformed question mark
for I not only love you
!
!!
!!!
!!!! –
but I love you forever, most excitable exclamation mark!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!.......and forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..............


Oh noble exclamation mark!
I expel! I exclaim!
Oh most excitable exclamation mark!

And exclaimed, "You look like an exclamation point!

This is the metaphorical chronicle of a cyclops with a
monocle,
So blinded by tunnel vision he'd see everything
canonical.
Through a telescope he spied a she-cyclops wearing a hat long and
conical,
And exclaimed, "You look like an exclamation point!
Now that's quite
ironical.

What His Exclamation Points Mean

Talking
Face to Face
Will Always Be Better
Because
Skin Meets Skin
and I Don't Quite Know Yet
What His Exclamation Points Mean

pain is too many exclamation points -

pain is too many exclamation points -
some kind of overcompensation for the sober realization that we need to be happy,
but aren't

pain is burnt toast, but not in the good way;
like the way that it sits on your tongue
Makes your mouth taste like metal,
makes your words feel like crumbs
waiting to be swept away

today, I laughed too much, so by 3 o' clock I had no smiles left in me
They have gone like I have gone to sleep
waiting for some alarm to sing
to ring with something like hope
something to cut the rope, the knots
my stomach ties when I don't notice
Pain is knowing that you know this
will hurt
and knowing is half the battle.

But knowing is...half the battle
The rest of the war is dealing with more
exclamation points than you wanted
more mornings without alarms

more meals
of only crumbs.

another spoken poem i've been meaning to post somewhere, haven't recorded it but it's an idea that's been in my head a long time.

Kiss me harder
Fuck me faster
Love me now
And hold me
I'm desperate
For you and
I won't wait
Another day
To see you
In my arms
I'll text you
Now and not
Wait for later
I'll speed to
Your house
Because there
May be
No Tomorrow
This might be
Our last kiss
Our last fuck

I'll be straight
With you
Live life
With an
Exclamation Point

I love her C-s and O-s,
Her zeroes,
Her parentheses.
