High School

A place of Pain
And shame
Walking in the rain,
Alone, thoughts clouding my brain
Murky, hazy names, swimming in my lane.

Stroke after stroke
You put in the work
Hone your craft
Until you collapse.

Yet she still demands more,
This *****

Sorry; I don't say that word no more

But man..I missed how she would make me snore
I won't say names, but ****
It wasn't uncommon to just float afterwards with no plan
Ecstatic dopamine - that's the ****, my man

Gratitude

It taeks two

To say please

And thank you

Control the attitude;

Find some solitude

Leave the hermitude.

You're gonna be just fine, my dude

being left on read
is like being left to bled

asking for help
but getting none

being left on read
is like being left to bled

i hate being left on read
it ***** because i care too much

sometimes you just have to write
not write but flow
get in the zone
the mental nodes
connecting words and rhymes
letting emotions fly
unruly and into the sky
like pigs flying
in the sky
guess what im drinking
hint its coffee

bad leads to okay
okay leads to good then great
this is a haiku
my second haiku
you don't want to see the first
or maybe you do
this is not a haiku.

There’s nothing quite like you
relentless; controlling; exciting
these words melt into synonyms
words that cannot extract
complete meaning
just words
words are just words
boys will be boys and girls will be girls
and words will be words
i look into my eyes
and i finally see somebody looking back at me
these are the words
that are bleeding out of me
words bleed into my screen like pen ink
