Hard to believe we've never met before
Are you sure?
Broken promises and shattered dreams
Splattered against the wall
When our back's against it
At least it holds us up so we won't fall
Waiting for this day since the day that I could crawl
Off into the world without a care about it all
Now I care about it all too often
My life is clay that hardened, cracked, and softened
Roll it in the shape of a ball
Mold it into stronger features
Learn from past experiences
At least I've strengthened weaknesses
That had my pretentious self
Aware that defense wins championships
Abandon ship cuz offense puts the points on the board
I swayed back and forth
**** it! I'm not keeping score
The balance lies right in the middle
Give alot and take a little
Just don't be bewildered
When there's nobody there to shelter you from the storm
A break away from what's become the norm
Come explore this world with me and throw normalcy out the door
It's just a constant state of being; learn your own way don't conform
The burning desire only lasts so long
Let's make it last forever, work together, and get to where we belong
Apostrophe's Sep 2019
Let's get fed up with domestic methods
Import all the space and time and learn from what we messed up
Turn the course with tourniquets until they get the message
In good sport we'll earn awards to which we're destined
It's your turn of course to source your needs with what your left with
Right beside me lies the key
the holes get filled just turn and see
The sunrise blinds the mind's eye
Unveil disguised bonsai trees
To scale down tea time
soaked in fallen leaves
each October remembers these
moments as if it's shaped in the sculpt of nature happily
A rapidly changing environment
asked me
to slow the speed of life down
dampen famined spirits
adjust the hue and clearness on your hd screens cuz you tube time is tube tied; infertility
Live humbly in humility
Don't undermine ability
With work ethics stability
Is worth a mil to me
Apostrophe's Aug 2019
An overabundance of mobile devices
Gets overlooked, wonder how global suffices
The impact it has and most of the crisis
Might just get worse if we don't crumble the righteous
Stumble upon some new found glory
Poor me what the bumble bee's swarming
In the morning it's the same old story
Chores and boring laundry
Calming music for me affords me the sight
Of the light that's moving towards me
Cordially disagree with downplayed
Thoughts of your achievements for your own sake pause and file a grievance all the while reconciling with your choice to leave us

Danger danger
This could be fatal
This could be real life
Or one of Aesop's fables
Prayin for sunshine
These kids just wanna make it rain though
I used to be able to take body shots now
I get a flag thrown for a tackled ankle
I'm exploring my options from every angle
Been broken, mangled
To feeling like my life is a movie, Fandango
Could really cash in on cuz
Today I feel like a new me was born
The calm before the storm
A swarm of birds and bees
Flock to the last sunflowers and worms
Block the past out
obnoxious facts bout
Leaving on your own terms
Believing in achieving
as long as the sun burns
Lather up that lotion
Don't leave no stone unturned
In search of purpose
Hurts the surface
But deep down I find comfort lurkin'
Just a couple more layers to peel back
Don't shed a tear
Get the **** up out my hemisphere
You don't want no problems here
Smiling from ear to ear helps me
Stear clear of fear that's drawing near
Unchartered territories
Run farther from careless worries
Become part of this unburied treasure hunt
It's cloudy with a Chance of flurries
Be careful on the off ramps Bridges and overpasses traffic may be delayed in these areas.

I'm bionic
These are words that pop up on my auto correction keyboard.... then I think
**** ...
this smart phone really does know me
better than me
A leaf blows catches wind
And frolicks down the streeet
Attach a go pro cam and catch some moments hopefully
Mold it cope with
flash photography
Molten lava seeps beneath the seats of the deceased
increased tensions building filling streets with the police
riot gear and gas masks
flying beer and possibly
biased fear in the stratosphere
I nearly stear clear of the mere thought of
Baskin in the omnipotence
Set aside our differences
And balance the arithmetic
With a litmus stick
Sign, seal it lick and stick
A stamp
deliver quick

From the depths of my soul
My most reputable
source of information Told me
to keep it real
but the reel's spinnin' Towards me
and the fact of the matter
is a matter of fact
the laughing stock
is just a toy warehouse in the back
and these feelings are just feelings
and it's clearly appearing
that merely believing
is healing the cracks
Sanity intact
Man it seems that that alone
Would satisfy my manic past
A lapse of judgement
Frequents me
So let's adjust the frequency
Muster up the decency
To face it head on peacefully
Turn another leaf for me
To at least get through this evening
So I can focus on just healing me

My depiction of fiction
fits the description
uplifted from my own benedictions
been a ****,
been addicted
bend and lift
my  back... only  difference
Is I had somebody watching mine
To make up for what I lack and
what I thought I know
By the fact I've brought you thought provok-
ing moments
Hold it
Mold it
Don't let go it's
life in motion
Nice to know that
most components
Grow and hold it's
The struggle's golden
Hold up swollen fists
To no avail you
Never give up
Never live up to
other's expectations
Know your limits
Set the boundary
Allowing for a more peaceful, sound sleep
Cuz at the end of the day
We all lay
Our head upon that pillow
And when contentness sets in
Voids...we fill those
weep like willows
Weak but still chose
To instill those
Values in our kinfolk
