you gave me a word to hold onto
it got me through the night
felt nice for a while
but we both know this isn't right
keeping your distance is a crime
I know this by the hurt in my chest
someone's placed you here in front of
me as a torturing test
you've put a gun to my head and I'm asking to die
for the sake of being dead
what I would do for you to crawl out of her
and into my bed
I am a frightened little boy who's scared, lost, and confused
Wanting desperately to feel protected from
Nightmares haunting when awake; Unable to stop the abuse
Wish my savior would descend down from above

Mommy please why won't you save me; Anything you want I'll do
Fiercely needing, almost bleeding, to be loved
Didn't mean to misbehave and promise I'll be better too
Daddy please don't scream, get mad and start to shove

"Good times" merely cover up; Create a shadow for the truth
******* stories lull the mind, becoming numb
Ticking time bomb, no surprise when like a powder keg you blew
Striking blows just like a boxer with no gloves

Planted problems rising up are stemming from and grow into
Epic beanstalks much like Jack thought he wished of
Same result from fabled tale except there is no golden goose
Just the giant who refuses to give up

Trembling fear I have inside can't overcome; I lack the tools
Chains me down; These shackles I'm forever cuffed
In a war against myself where it is destined that I loose
Broke and battered, insides shattered into dust

Banished from the realm of life to Fortress of my Solitude
Daily robot the appearances keep up
A magician misdirecting and forever hide from you
All the pain and shame within me that I clutch

Needed partner, what I'm lacking; Information is not news
Someone that I could be close to is enough
Life is empty, without feeling; Like a poet with no muse
Left here rotting; Man of Steel has turned to rust

The cat in the hat
Or was it The hat in the cat
Trigger warning
Let's dissect it and find out.
Maybe not
We will find another way
We will find nothing anyway

In your brainless head; nothing
There is wind
I think
I think therefore I am
Maybe there is something in the end
Something appeared ****, suddenly
Disappeared ****, suddenly
Re-appeared  ****, suddenly
As a magic trick
With poofs come and go
Traveling in a wormhole
So I jumped in.
Alice down the rabbit hole
No animal was harmed during the making of this poem.

I just want to
Believe the things
I wrote about myself
On yellow Post-It notes
Stuck to my mirror
Your home is gorgeous
How's your heart????
For the most part
Poeople do not care , as long as it looks good.
Genuine is so rare ...

~ he wondered where
    the flowers had gone
as he stared at her beauty
    unable to see anything else
Just hoping for a smile
