And with a sincere smile,
she looked to the stars
knowing the future was worthwhile,
even, with a thousand scars.

let's be completely honest now,
life doesn't favorite the broken,

but that means we don't have to live
under the shadow of fortune,
and being the best we can be,

because sometimes,
sometimes we can't be at our best,
sometimes we have to put on a fake smile,
and run through a sun lit tunnel,
expecting everyone to be happy,
when we are not.

Let's be honest now,
my life hasn't been all sweet and caring,

but you have brought happiness,
to my life,
to what i thought couldn't be happy,
more than just lonely nights,
more than this wind that it brings
when I'm in these heights,

for a second i didn't know why i was falling,
but now i know i just tripped for you.

and now it's a bother
getting back,
to that lonely place,
where stones talk,
and the clouds race,
where water flows,
enough for the current to live,

Again,
let's be honest,
why be as high as the sun,
where everything beautiful stands and is,
it's down here,
with you.
At least say something.
Please don't leave without saying anything,
It causes me pain that you won't have to witness.
But it makes me wonder,
Did I do something wrong?

I'm underrated
Stuck in eco- friendly posters
In an air- conditioned carriage
Held by devilish hands
Seek me shelter
Call me kindred mother
I'm threatened
Belches of smoke
Blisters, severe burns
Adore me, aching
Held by devilish hands
Call me kindred mother..

raphæl
the scent of her sweat
cigarette ash on my skin
she says, "don't forget."
as she whispers to my ear
the story of how we met

Lately
I don’t feel close
to poetry.

It feels elusive.
Unfamiliar.
Once it spoke to me.
But now it’s mute.

It sits back
and doesn’t look
at me.

If I call out
it doesn’t hear.

Lately poetry is
like that demon
I used to want
to reappear.

I was left in shambles,
I was left in the cold
Then she appeared like angels,
So divine and so bold
We danced through a sunshower
We baked the perfect batch
Oh so full our bellies were
It was a perfect match

Insanity is such a playful word
I want to extract each of your teeth
To play the most iconic drum beats of all time.
Make snarled rhythm out of your body
One.    Last.    Time.
Underneath the howling moonlight
We made love to.  
And you sat shivering.
Insanity holds such ambiguity that it's ready to burst.
So intense as it sits stinging you like bees
Watching you H. U. R. T.
Or leaving you laughing at strange.

I guess what we have is insanity
That it is driving me off the edge
And keeping me together all the same.
????? Snarled was supposed to say senseless but autocorrect got in the way and I like it better.
