I am not strong, I'll admit that fact,
No desire for power, that's how I act.
But listen closely, please understand,
Weakness won't define me, I've got dreams so grand.

In my fragility, I find my might,
In vulnerability, I take flight.
I won't be a loser, I'll show my worth,
Embracing my weakness, conquering the earth.

Though I stay weak, I'll reach for the sky,
Defying limits as I aim high.
Step by step, I'll climb mountains tall,
With strength in my weakness, I'll never fall.

So don't be deceived by my feeble state,
Within my tender heart, courage awaits.
No loser am I, I'll prove it true,
Embracing my weakness, I'll make it through.

In twilight's tender, sweet embrace,
Where dreams and whispers softly dwell,
Let my heartache find its place,
A tale of longing, I shall tell.

As when the night sun says, "Hello,"
And paints the sky with hues so fine,
Within my thoughts, your presence grows,
Yet love's requital, not in line.

While wintry winds caress my soul,
They carry echoes of your name,
Each gust, a reminder taking toll,
Of this unrequited flame's aim.

In depths of slumber's gentle flight,
Where hopes and yearnings softly blend,
You are the star that lights my night,
But our paths may never truly mend.

Together we dance in fleeting dreams,
Yet reality brings forth tears,
For your heart's tethered to distant streams,
Leaving mine in endless fears.

Yet still, I'll cherish moments lost,
Hold them in my secret chest,
A love unspoken, at any cost,
A silent ache, my heart's unrest.

So as the night sun bids adieu,
And dawn's light graces heaven's crest,
Know my love remains strong and true,
In this unrequited quest.

A pleasant moon of dazzling light
A lifeless night glowed aptly right
Though through your shine, you bring delight
Glows only when the Sun's in sight

Now grab a knife,
Then stab your back.
Go blame  your friends,
Then start a new pack.

In with the new,
and Out with the old.
Go with the flow,
Or be left in the cold.
some so called friend you are, you piece of sh^t.

Wake up. It’s noon. My morning’s here
Stand up. Stretch up. My mind is clear
Walk up towards the usual place
Sit down. Look straight and see my face

Boot up the sleeping tech of fantasy
What time? Grabs phone so I can see
Two hours away from dear midday
The usual heat of hell as well today

Scroll down. Click click. Oh hey, what’s this?
A dog. A cat. Oh, what a bliss
A chat. A post. Some notification
A like. Replies from the online nation

Oh hey. What’s this? Some hours have past
A sigh. A thought. Time fly so fast
Close this and that. Free time is done
It’s time to work. Free time is gone

Move this and that, and animate
Make this. Do that. Oh no, it’s late.
Move fast. Move quick. Must finish it
It’s done. It’s sent. And so I'll eat

Sardines, noodles and some canned foods
Sometimes with rice. Sometimes just goods
When pay is up, take out is fine
A nudge. A chat. It’s now playtime

The League. It’s call. So loud and clear
My friends. My enemies. My champs they fear
Top lane. Bot lane. The jungle is fine
Mid lane is something I have to refine

Oh my. Bright lights. Outside is where it’s from
The Sun, it’s out. And so my night has come
Shutdown. Lay down. It’s time to sleep
Next day. Scroll up. Read and repeat.
just my daily life. *siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh*

"It's always that easy. The problem is, you don't want to bury it."*

Lock it away, seal the case,
never let it surface or touch your face,
a simple caress, a broken sigh,
it's about time you've said goodbye.

A memory pressed against my cheeks,
I haven't  heard from him in weeks,
it throbs, it hurts, it makes me cry,
why won't this incessant feeling die?

Living, breathing, beating soul,
why must you hurt me so?
Please rid me of this tattered heart,
mend me, lest I fall apart.

Burn it, ban it, **** it now,
these feelings you must disavow,
with fragile lips you kiss farewell,
may these pains part ways from me in Hell.
Shout out to CR for the inspiration. I appreciate the talk we had.
(He's the one quoted at the top of the poem.)
