Framed
Day 7d
Quick,
take a pic
or maybe, 26!

Show my smile.
Stay still for a mile.

A picture's worth
a thousand words
but,
I don't have
a clever caption.
I almost hit a homeless man with my car while scrolling #haha #irony #firstworldproblems

I'm not a poet
Day Nov 4
I am a fraud
4 years later
still ain't found god.

my brain stopped
searching
for words to say

my head don't bow
and
I will not pray

my heart fell silent
and never
returned


I'm not a poet
but, I am more
learned.

lovers grave
Day Sep 16
Let's be buried in our favorite cuddle position,
you can be my little spoon.
We'll find the best spot for our decomposition
with a perfect view of the moon.

Sometimes, I am scared of the close
of this happy life with you.
But, our souls will start again I suppose
a story all anew.
Day Aug 31
I want to be invisible
but, really what I mean
is
I want to be okay
with the way that I am seen.

Day Aug 11
What is the definition of myself?
A modpodge rendition of a pinterest post I saw?
A poem I wrote drunk off my ***?
A half-hearted rhyme I can't tie tother?
This is not a poem. It's my life.
Day Aug 10
I feel like a crossword puzzle puked in my brain,
jumbled thoughts on a trackless train.
I'm trying to sort through this emotional pain
but, I'm not even sure there is something to gain.
Day Jul 10
First thing
I noticed,

camped
and
homeless
but, you found
a place
to call home.

Man*,

Are you
content
to
scavenge and
roam?

Is my question
intrusive?
Should I just
stay mute?
I can't help
but look over,
while on my
commute.

dizzy day
Day Jun 4
It's hard to pause thoughts twirling
when lady earth just keeps on swirling.
Try to keep my head in the air,
but if I fall,
why should she care?
Day May 30
or does she just
feel their cry?

Never could ask
them why.

Just wait around
to dry.

Maybe next time,
she'll say
high.

Day May 18
I tasted you,
but then I came to the realization
that paying for my demise
made me

Day May 18
Racing arms and angry sneakers in a concrete hallway -
my heart beat.

I feel my feet.

"This is the floor." I tell myself,

in auto speak.

Who are you?

I am running.
I can't tell if this one will make sense to anyone but me.

Mom said
Day Apr 23
"Don't be Daysha, she acts like the devil." to my sis,
but, I have never felt Satan's dark and humid kiss.
Only to myself, have I attempted to be true.
So, a message to little sister , "Please, just be you."
I need to be writing. Time slips by me, but I am trying to scoop it up again. Re-finding the things that drive me to be alive is truly a neverending adventure.

Day Apr 3
No reason to stay,
but no place to go.
P l e a s e, go away,

"Can't stop", they say.
Whatever, I know.
Day after day,
the clock's running slow.
Got bills to pay,
turn this body on auto.

Day Feb 12
I'm sad because no one likes me
No one likes me because I'm an alcoholic
I'm an alcoholic because I'm dead inside
I'm dead inside because I've been hurt
I've been hurt because I am weak
I am weak because I love everyone
I love everyone because no one loves me
No one loves me because I'm unlovable
I'm unlovable because I am broken
I am broken because someone broke me
Someone broke me because I left them
I let them because I loved them
I loved them because I am naive
I am naive because I trusted them
I trusted them because I was ignorant
I was ignorant because no one taught me
No one taught me because no one was there
No one was there because no one likes me
No one likes me because I'm an alcoholic
I'm an alcoholic because I am dead inside
I am dead inside because I am sad

Wanted to share his words with you all
Day Jan 30
God?

I thought I heard you today,
in the voice of a man
asking me for a cigarette.
A nineteen degree request;
faint on a cold, city street.
A memory of Sunday story
caught me off guard.
" Silver and gold have I none;
but such as I have give I thee."
I've since stopped attending
my scheduled worshiping.
Long forgot,
about an un-kindled burden,
but today I wondered,
are you still here?
Day Jan 21
Secrets, secrets, I know you keep.
Surely not meant to make me weep.
Open emails and a curious eye,
I told myself not to pry.
Calm myself, and clear my head,
some things are better left unread.
Anger came and then she passed,
force these lips to not speak fast.
Thinking "Maybe this will help me out,
He doesn't know about my doubt."
Suddenly have the upper hand,
now I have a chance to stand.
Both have things that we don't share,
who am I, to say what's fair?
I still think what we have is real
but, can't get past the things I feel.
With a kiss, push these thoughts away,
"Morning, lover, have a wonderful day."
Here's to the start of another week,
I've honestly been feeling less bleak.
I don't know why it's been easier lately,
but I'm not here to complain :)

Looking for a better weapon to fight this vulnerability
Day Jan 16
i poured out my heart
and counted the contents
a jumble of insecurities
mixed with variety of pleasures
days of happiness stored
next to nights of suffering
feelings and emotions cluttered
next to my organized logic
i tried to find some sense
buried in the chaos
weighed out the burden
that seems too heavy to hold
this little heart of mine
carelessly made in so little time
she worked so hard
to keep me alive
but never learned to
do anything but that
i crafted her to be
strong and safe
locked everything away
prayed she was secure
but now i find myself
with something new
and realized she has no space
set aside for peace
she knows to run
but not to sing
spent too many sleeps
fueled by disappointment
she must be reassembled
to process this peaceful bed
and maybe some beauty
will come from this head
I want to create something meaningful.

Day Jan 7
Go searching for
a person,
to lie with you in bed.
I did and found
an angel -
to fights demons in my head.
Every morning
tell yourself
"You are not alone."
Ethereal
open hearts
create the safest home.

accept that it will take work
happiness is a fight
one the many take for granted
some have people fighting for them
others, only themselves
but never stop fighting
because you deserve that
7.7 Billion people
it's easy to feel
alone
it's easy to think that
you don't mean anything
but you're here
and you deserve happiness
so fight for it

Please, tell me
Day Jan 5
How do I handle
waking up
with a strong-*** desire
to bleed out in the bathroom?
Imagining my toothbrush
as a weapon,
bleeding gums are the least
of my worries.
Before I leave for work
quickly check
underneath my mouse pad.
Yup, it's still there,
my blade.
I don't need it,
I tell myself
as I start my car today.
Turn on 104.9
and journey on my way.
Passively suicidal mornings have dominated lately. No apparent reason why. I do it to myself you know?

so for now, if that's okay-
I'll just keep loving you.

maybe some
water
to stay alive
add some fresh
air
she can thrive

a flower knows
where
she should go
and in due
time
she will grow
but do not
worry
time goes slow

a flower learns
who
she's meant to be
but still she
knows
its not easy
to live a
life
but only breathe

my dam(n)ation
Day Dec 2018
How could any good,
come from this broken soul of mine?
Prayers never do what they should,
but they tell me I'll be fine.
Depression feeds religion
or is that just my line?
Could this suffering be conviction
my warning from divine.
where is the line between what is right and what is wrong. between what is good and what is bad. humanity will never agree - are we alone in insanity?

Day Dec 2018
Lover,

I'm sorry to ask this
one more time
but do you mean it
when you say you're mine?

I know you're worried
I'm being too quiet
but my mind has to hurry,
and my brain is in flight.

Now my self-esteem hungers
and creativity's run dry-
keep counting up the numbers
so I don't fly too high.

Can't stop running on this track
assure myself, I'm pulling weight
constant pressure on my back
creating more self-hate.
