ignoring me
will only make me
raise my voice louder.

when you try to silence me,
I am reminded of why I spoke up
in the first place.

if you want to stop
hearing my voice,
you'll need to start
paying attention
to my words.

I will not be quiet
until you listen.

someone asked,

“how can you be
so happy,

but still write poetry
like depression
is all you know?”

did it ever occur to you
that maybe

I’m only happy because
I took that depression
out on this paper,

instead of taking it
out on myself?
Depression is the gateway drug

Because I'll try anything
Absolutely anything
To make this feeling stop

take them
the words i long to speak
that lodge in my throat
these words of mine
take them out
so i can breathe.

Words are hard to understand
But silence is even harder
You can't read between the lines
If the lines aren't there…
Just a thought I had :-)

I hear you speak
I can hear your words
But I'm sorry
My mind won't let me listen.

Don't doubt me missing you
We grew up and managed to pull through
I grew up watching you and mother
My only brother
Life stressed us out but we had each other
Never be more proud
Just grew up with doubt
My bad I haven't always been there
But a call a way I'm gone & got love to share
Don't think I'm cold
I'll still give love even after a trillion years old
I'll even tell the world
You're my brother

I say:
Do you want me to pretend you do not exist?

She says:
Do as you wish.

I perceive:
All I was once you moved onto the next,
A waste of breath.

What a mutual perception process,

You keep on running and now I have nothing but my beliefs.

And what do you have?
Your cup is empty

It would be full but...
You poke holes in all the words I speak
The art of assuming the worst
