Catfish
KHY Mar 9
Tangling temperament fouls my mood
Whispers of paradise; illicit and ****
Conquers my femur, my patience-
I brood.

Lips kiss of magic, twisted with soot
Who comes to split me?
To carve me in twos...
Magnificent folly, cement me in glue.

Garbage
KHY Mar 8
I’m not so thoughtful
When it comes to plastic bags

Wrapping around lampposts,
Sneering through the leaves

Thoughtless as a buckled leaflet;
Advertised for kin

I kick it in a circus of payouts,
Reflecting all my dues

One day it will return,
Latent and breaking.

Cold

Bliss is in the heat;
Life is in the cold

Writing Doubt
KHY Mar 2021
writing spiral
I'm writing the spiral
I'm on my paper
drawing my pencil
I am on my paper
and I'm drawing my pencil
as all these faces that I see
are just not adding up
into anything I want to be
or anywhere I want to go  
and no matter what you say
I will never endorse it
back to the life
that takes your soul
and make it go away
an abstract poem on my insecurities about writing poetry, lyrics, or just creating art in general.

Bad Sanctuary
KHY Feb 2021
the waterfall pours from my eyes
pedals fall underneath the guise
stunting growth, lethargic dope
cogs and knots, perched atop  
Frozen locks, offset and lost
denial of fact, unravelling fiction
dine in solitude, reset and listen

Your Title
KHY Nov 2020
You are greater than that which you are named
Until that which you are named becomes that which you are

Capsule
KHY Oct 2020
It feels more natural
Than a capsule
Talking with you
Even though you make me blue
Medication puts me through

Leaf Season
KHY Oct 2020
rain bends leafs to their depths
they ring out colour that fills the earths chest
a coat of white on a heap of life
unto death

Rejected
KHY Oct 2020
You’ve infected that part of me
that cries when I’m alone
Now my tears are iron chains
that block me from the sun
I feel none
I feel none

Forget
KHY Apr 2020
So much for them;
I'll forget them
So much for me;
I'll forget me
Forget. In these trying times I find it hard to keep everything in. By forgetting my problems I forget myself. By forgetting others I forget myself. I forget.

Understand
KHY Feb 2020
You know what I did,
But not what it meant
Just because you know what someone has done doesnt mean you understand what it meant

Love
KHY Nov 2019
I can't promise you the world,
But I can give it to you
I cannot promise you, but I can show you.

Feel
KHY Oct 2019
I understand nothing
I feel everything
What I do not know, I feel
when i do know, I heal

Peace
KHY Oct 2019
I'm glad I was given what I got
I am so lucky this time around
being born to peace
I know I have always been very fortunate. But we will always find misfortune no matter where we start... it all depends on how we look at it, and what we do with it.

It is Okay
KHY Oct 2019
In a weird way, I'm okay
In a normal way, I've never been okay
I feel this way a lot, I've never felt normal. I've never felt okay being normal either.
I hope that's okay.

People
KHY Sep 2019
Are you okay?
No, are you?
No.
I'm not okay. Will we ever be okay?

This Life
KHY Jul 2019
I'm on my way but I don't know
I'm slinging sacks over everyone I know
I'm on my way but I don't know
They all go in different directions I'm left alone
I'm on my way but I don't know
Why I gave anything to anyone
The feeling remains

Acting

If you act like you act;
and I act like I act;
We can continue acting forever

Forever

Write it off as a coincidence;
But she will forever influence the way you are

Dull
KHY Jan 2019
Words are knives in my heart;
I am dull to the world

When I keel and I peel;
My aftermath is sealed

Reflection
KHY Jan 2019
Look at your own reflection;
it’s a metaphor for your internal dimensions

Keeper
KHY Jan 2019
Sin is a real evidence keeper
Expose it to your equals
Or it will eat you

Digging
KHY Jan 2019
Unraveling the mystery in her spine
Knots all throughout time
I break it in;
I cave my mark,
I show her how I like to start

Disintegrated
KHY Jan 2019
My lovely precious bee,
Behave
The hive isn’t for you
It’s for us;
But we’re dead together ?
So its dust
I have a broom

— The End —
