The flowers of Anhedonia grows upon me,
Its roots engulf my whole being.
Serendipity long lost, Only the remains of this wintercearig feeling inside this small yet feeble vessel.
I don't know what to do or what to say; maybe to fill up that satisfaction I crave.
Mind slowly turning insane,
I keep things to myself, and that's all that I can say.
All the florets blossom in the longing shade;
of darkness that might never fade,

Anhedonia.

The world froze..
just for a second..
but I felt time stop when I saw you pluck a dandelion and blow its petals off like it was the only thing in life left to do.

I wonder what you wished for.

The innocence you embody sent one petal you blew up in the air and with God's help, created a whole field of wild flowers.

Its called the 8th wonder of the world..

You inspire me.
You inspire me because I inspire you
and I don’t deserve that kind of love.

You want to be just like me when you grow up

But you are So full of life and So free..

She’s a dandelion.. swaying beautifully and unapologetically in the wind.

and I’m the **** attached... too wrapped up in this world to even think about what real freedom is.

So when everything stopped for a moment..

When you glanced over at me..

I felt gratitude. Because you give me freedom with every laugh.
With every hug.
With every time you say you love me.

So when you tell me you want to be like me when you grow up..

I say I just want to be a dandelion.
I want to be just like you.

I watch you as the smile leaves your face.
I watch you as the glimmer in your eyes start to dissipate.
I watch as long conversations turn into silence.
I watch as we, become you and me...
I watch as your heart grows stronger as mine begans to break.
I watch you learn to love yourself as I have nothing but hate...
I watch as you leave and I stay behind.
I watch as you never come back and I learn to let time fly.

Breaking back for you
Oh money...
Brother getting locked up  (yeah)
For money...
People getting shot up (Yeah)
For money...
Megacorps run America.. (Yeah)
We all struggling, trying to make ends meet
These days it rarely sunny
Ain't sick but my nose is runny
These tuition rates is stunning
Better days, hopefully coming
A dollar rules our lives its funny
Until its not and its scary, very
So tell me, whats the difference between you and me
There ain't nothing really its silly
How the color of our skin really matter
Lets change that and make the future better
That's my goal lets all contribute
In college I'm on my grind
good girls, so hard to find
people come and go
but the real ones staying close
Speaking my mind
Don't care if you mind
Your mind is weak
I'm Einstein on the beat
Who so happens to be from the street
Alert every second even while asleep
Realized this ain't the life for me
I'm gone
Money...
Money...
Money...
Breaking back for you
Oh money...
Brother getting locked up  (yeah)
For money...
People getting shot up (Yeah)
For money...
Megacorps run America.. (Yeah)

You are the rain as I stand in the desert.
The light in my darkness.
Healer of my grievous wounds.

I am envious of you.
I loathe you for having all the stars.
Building your dreams on my shattered hopes,
While disgust lies deep within my empty gaze.

Frigid air left me breathless.
Jaded eyes wake to the sound of your voice
Only to be dazzled by a love unseen.

— The End —
