Sticks and stones
may break my bones
But words will never hurt me
Is what I would preach
to my inner child
But It was all a facade
As my heart drowned
In the venom of your words
The bruises
The scratches
The breaks
None of it hurt more then your words
Broken bones turn callus  
Scratches turn into scars
And bruises fade away
But your words
Stuck with me
More then things things
That are meant to actually hurt me

Your name is a pretty word with
A deep meaning
A word that everyone should know
But no one gets
But I do
To me
Your name
Is redamancy
Hearing your name
Is like the blissful
Rings of an “ I love you”
Your name
Is only a word
That may be
Lost in modern language
But Im so happy that
We had this
serendipitous encounter
If I never would have found
Your name
I would still be searching
in the darkness
Your name
A word
But to me it’s so much more
But the others
Your still waiting to be found

An everlasting winter solstice
Soul freezing
Body shivering
With my blood turning into solids
As I wait for the warmth of spring
But it hadn’t come
3 months turned into 16 cold years
Just waiting for the death to be over
Each day I hoped I would
Experience the rebirth of spring
But it hadn’t come
All I’ve witnessed was the death of the planet
With a sea of endless white crystals
Born in April
But can’t seem to remember
The feelings of my birth season
I hoped I would get to see the love
Spring provides
And it finally came
It came in the form of you
I’ve finally got to feel spring
And it’s warmth
It’s love
And I finally felt alive
You managed to even show my dark side
The love it was secretly craving
It feels like I’m at home in my natural
Habitat of spring

Your presence is
A present to the universe
Your more beautiful then life itself
How can you go unnoticed
Your existence is
Mans greatest gift
You are the manifestation
Of peace
And healing

Black ice

It can’t be seen only felt
You won’t know it exist
Until you fall
You won’t feel pain
Until your already on the ground
Adding to the coldness
I was safe
I was warm
Until I took my first step
I slipped
Never knew I could fall so hard
On black ice
You aren’t here
But your presence is
And I slipped on black ice
Your my first step
The most painful
The most embarrassing
But I still managed to fall
**** I couldn’t stay on my feet
But I sure do feel the numbing sensation of the ice
How could I be so reckless
I’ve been surrounded
By black ice my whole life
How could I fall for you
My traumas
Bad ex’s
My deep self hatred
How could I fall for you
Once again
Justin Nov 2021

It follows me every where I go
It feels like it never leaves my side
It is Killing me internally
For eternity pain will be wit me
After we have a fall out
my pain seems to run back
We have so much chemistry
I think pain is my soulmate
My pain is in love wit me
So obsessed
It won’t let me be free
I got used to the burning  
Now I am anemic
I’ve been freezing
My pain changes like the seasons
No like bipolar mood swings
Or does it change like water
I am at eternal war wit my pain
I’m in pain but don’t yell
No wonder it feels eternal
I’m fighting pain alone

Tip toe around death
cause I heard heaven was one hell of a place
After every funeral
Life must go on
Ppl talk about time heals
What about the things time kills
Tiptoe around love
Cause I’ve always loved you more
Hearts don’t break even
I gave you your heart back
U gave me mine back in pieces
No you just shattered
More of the broken pieces
Gave you all my love
Invested so much now I got no heart left
Tip toe around happiness
Because of the things I’ve done
Regardless of my past
I hope you see my heart is pure
It was just tainted
Tip toe around you
Cause your unattainable
Felt like u was home
But Got evicted
Now I survive by my lonely
Went from love birds To strangers
It all happened overnight
All that is left is a distant memory
Tip toe around myself
Because I’m me
A hopeless romantic
With the strength of kings
Can heal others
But can’t heal self
No one really felt what I felt
That’s why I tip toe
Like a thief in the night
To sneak
And creep
Around the madness
