Light and Dark
deadhead Apr 29
I don't consider
light and dark
to be opposites.
They're just the same;
they couldn't exist
without the other.
The light needs the
dark in order to shine,
and the dark needs
the light in order to exist.

When did we become
a thumbs up or a like?

At what point did we lose
our own self-worth over

Just love, bro
deadhead Apr 26
when you love someone,
that love will never die.
the love simply transfers
to another soul that needs it.
this is why we must love.
the love will never fade away.

Your Words

i take your words
like they're seeds
and plant them
in the deepest
parts of my heart
so that they may
take root and with
time, grow into the
beautiful feelings
you had intended
them to be
gosh, you're so dreamy ;3

Yellow Cough Drops
deadhead Apr 11
being younger, i remember
begging mom for the bright
yellow cough drops, thinking
that just because it's not candy
doesn't mean it wouldn't be sweet.
i suppose that's how i felt with you.
that just because you weren't like
everyone else, you might still be sweet.
well, as the saying goes, mother knows best.
the cough drop was bitter, and so were you.

i refuse to bow down to modern policies
all they do is lie and feign their apologies.
promising to protect all we have left
when they're the ones responsible for the theft,
robbing us of our lives all for the "greater cause"
forcing us to abide by the most outrageous of laws.
they try ever so hard to make sure that you fail
and if you somehow make it past, they throw you in jail
you dare to have a voice, and they tear you apart
by trying to crush your spirit and heart.
stealing the land to claim and sell as their own
just so they can replace all of the beauty with silicone.
i can't just stand by and watch this anymore
i'll use my words in a way in which they can't ignore.
i have but one more thing that i want to say, or rather, ask
i could never do this alone, do you suppose you'd be up to the task?
i'm tired of sitting idly by, watching the world be destroyed by my own kind

The Observer
deadhead Apr 28
i sit alone in the night
and listen to the world.
the breeze that just barely
caresses the bark of trees,
making the leaves shiver.
the quiet call of a sleepy dove
echoes faintly, making the feral cat
sneak a look up at the sky
and catching a glimpse of the
cloud-shrouded moon.
i, the observer, also look to the moon
watching the clouds glow with sliver light
listening to the dove coo one last time

We Only Have One Earth
deadhead Apr 10
Let's cut down thousands of acres of trees
and force the poor and wounded upon their knees.
Don't forget to throw your trash out into earth
and let new types of pollution be given birth.
We'll continue to overuse all of our remaining soil
and complain about our only earth is beginning to spoil.
It doesn't really matter because we won't be here
after all, because of us, the end is getting more near.
Oh, and we'll never be the one to accept the blame
for the oil spills and for anything that might become aflame.
i'm getting sick of how many people don't care about the state of our only Earth

Wonders of Rain
deadhead Apr 22
why are you downcast
whenever rain starts to pour?
is it not beautiful?
the smell, almost sweet
on the earth, where the grass
looks now bejeweled
and webs between each blade
wears the droplets like pearls.
The bark of trees soften a bit,
and the leaves, like hair, drip
with the residual rain.
Do you not find this beautiful?
Not even the colors in the sky,
somehow mixing oranges and blues
in a way that isn't contrasting.
How I wish the sky was tangible!

Cherry Cough Drops
deadhead Apr 12
being a child, i remember
loving the tangy taste
of cherry cough drops, thinking
it was pretty good for not being candy.
growing up, i started to realize
that they weren't tangy;
they were medicinal, and that to a
child, they might seem sweet because
they don't know any better.
some people say they miss being a kid
so that they didn't know the things
that they know now. But I would
much rather know what I know
and be capable of making my
own choices then to be kept
in the dark like a child.

i cannot describe

i lose ambition,
lack the required
motivation to
write what i
want to write.
