I want to beat you to death with a blunt object

I want to get one of those high end fashion mannequins grab them by the ankles and bash your ribcage in

I want to sharpen 5 pencils, bind them with a rubber band, put them in your mouth and punch the erasers

I want to strap you to a bead of nails then strap that bed of nails to the hood of my car so I can watch you suffer as we drive over speed bumps on a mall parking lot during an earthquake

I want you to somehow survive a terrible car crash and somehow not survive a small fender ****** on the way back from the hospital

When I saw the Moon
Md Aleef Aug 2014
When I was a child I thought
The new moon was a cradle
The full moon was granny's round face

The new moon was a banana
The full moon was a big cake.

When I was a child
I never saw the moon.
I only saw what I wanted to see.

And now I see the moon

*I Tried*
Md Aleef Aug 2014
As a kid, i've tried
I've tried to keep up with people all around,
Tried to bring up expectations,
Tried to keep up with expectations
Tried to fit in and be a part of whom im expected to be

I've tried and tried despite the countless times i've been pushed down
Fighting back crying

Funnily enough,
Its times like this,we stop trying

Going Out
Md Aleef Feb 2015
I was born bloodied up and screaming
I don't want to go the same way
Please recognise me if you need to use this. Its personal.

You live in the wrong place
and now is your chance to run
to nowhere.
It doesn’t matter
that 58 seconds isn’t long enough
to find your wedding album
or your son’s favorite blanket
or your daughter’s almost completed college application
or your shoes
or to gather everyone in the house.
It doesn’t matter what you had planned.
It doesn’t matter who you are
Prove you’re human.
Prove you stand on two legs.
