If there was one word One word, isolated by itself That I cannot stand above all others It would have to be "Okay" I despise "Okay" "Okay" Is how your millionth day at work went "Okay" Is off-brand raisin bran "Okay" Is how you say school is going When you don't want to admit you spend Every second of it Wanting to die
"Okay" Is packed to the brim with Hidden implications Like a treasure chest Filled with bottles With little subliminal hatreds Written on tiny slips of paper Passively aggressively pushed inside To discover later As I pull out a treasure map And try to decipher Where I went wrong
"Okay" Is a one word dismissal That feels like an essay a thousand pages long "Okay" Is a poison dripping with disinterest When I dared to share with you Something I thought might make you smile "Okay" Is like trying to talk to a wall While watching the paint on it dry "Okay" Takes two seconds to write Yet I waited days For that dreaded word To grace my notifications "Okay" Should be used sparingly As if each time you send it You **** the receiver just a little bit "Okay" Should not be said so often that I know what you're about to say Like I saw it in a crystal ball "Okay" Is not looking up from your phone When I tell you about my day "Okay" Is not the proper response To "I love you"
They say that the opposite of love isn't hatred It's indifference And I can't think of a response More indifferent to pouring out My heart into your hands Than "Okay" At least the last thing you said to me Before we parted ways Showed that you cared At least a little bit "I hate you" Stung less Than the thousands of times Over our countless conversations You responded "Okay" Okay?
As they stand there In skimpy clothes Ignoring the letching The leering Calling to the lonely The lost the sad The desperate The depraved Are you looking For a date A good time Always in danger Taking the risk To earn the Money for the next fix The next meal The babies clothes No one asks their Stories
I've fallen to mapping the deepest parts of my forehead again. these days it feels like I'm climbing the jungle gym of my mind, clearing away cobwebs and emptying dust-covered boxes into my lap, searching yellowed scrolls and broken crates for diamonds. it's not that I feel far from the present, just as if I'm swimming through it, my head the only part of me above the water.
it's been a little while but I am still only climbing, praying, and scribbling words on a familiar page.
Eyes can sometimes say nothing And sadness cannot be uncovered Smiling with pain always happens And secrets are buried deep down You can never know what's in there ... Even in the hearts of the closest to you ...
you remind me of my future* keep me in today, with you in your presence it takes the smallest touch the biggest smile confident eyes; they know they like what they see and they search deep into my soul, dive into the deep end of my heart shredding love like water you don't need to breathe underwater
Looking Behind You With No One Beside You Your Freinds are Few Carrying the Pain Your Due Losing the Life You Once Knew No Thoughts But Blue! Struggling To Break Through theese Words Oh! So! True! Theese Feelings You must Subdue For You can Be Two! Just Stop Living on Lonely Avenue......
I'm Not Sure where this came from lol but now I can't stop thinking about where or why
My shadow has been trapped for a while I haven't taken it for a walk in days Maybe I don't deserve this shadow I regret lying in my bed all day Recently I have been seeing less of my shadow Darkness seems to scare it away I hope my shadow doesn't go for good Because it has followed me all this way
I love him I tell myself I know that We will be together forever I don’t believe that We could be separated My thoughts tell me that He’s the love of my life Sometimes my heart lies and says I could live an eternity Without him Like my friends say “We’re perfect for each other” And you can’t tell me He’s not the one.
