“Social media is taking over our lives,”
she tweeted angrily.

longing for love
craving affection
broken irreparably
no longer
filled with serotonin
i will be whole
read up and down ^^^

"I only cry over things that aren't real,"
she says with a soft frown
"It's the only thing that I feel
I relate to more than reality."

I nod and watch the wall
"It seems whenever I need to cry
Nothing comes at all
and all my strength is gone."

she smiles and speaks
"I find I cry to easily
and my laugh is always weak
And not as frequent."

I fiddle with my knife
"I laugh to much, and at the wrong times
but can't cry to save a life
even when I want to."

heart attack
brain on fire
pressure getting higher
boa constrictor
around my life
rescue me
take me out of my plight

i was filled
not with happiness
but with a deep contempt
my heart beats with reason today
this sounds more like a diary entry than a poem...

fourth of july
never pay attention
to the outcry
turn a blind eye
to melancholy and suffering
why we can't understand
our empathy is slumbering
passive days are numbering
say their names
say their names
america will never be the same
red white and blue
up in flames
juneteenth will be the only independence day I will be celebrating. i'm not black but i hear you. i see you. i stand with you. i will fight for you.
