You want a cocktail?
I'll brew you a classic.
Crushed seeds of indignation- fermented.
Fresh fruits of strife, discord and distrust- juices squeezed.
A sprinkle of tasty gossip.
Don't forget the right amount of hate.
All mixed in the chalice of anger.
Serve with toppings of harsh words,
On a tray of insensitive action.
But if you so desire the revenge special,
That is best serv'd cold.
As humans we often have troubles, but most are a result of our actions.
Matterhorn Feb 8
Walking into the building:
Cold parking lot,
****** music blaring from that lifted truck,
People honking;

Glass doors,
Short, insufficient eye contact,
"Good morning!" from the lady who guards the door
With a laptop and a forced smile;

Quick strides,
A pinball-like dance,
Yelling, screaming, arguing, sometimes fighting,
Fake greetings and meaningful silences;

A tiny bubble of social-media-manufactured society,
Without the trials and tribulations
That make one human
Or the experience that makes one sensible;

I can't ******* wait to graduate.

sometimes I find it hard to talk to you
so I make lists in my sleep,
of something I could say.
but still I come up empty.
what is it about you?
I can’t live with you or without you.
every single day, I sit in my anxiety.
trying to find a way to say anything.
won’t you remember that I’m your baby?
and if you give a ****, won’t you not leave me?
you’re the one I’ll always choose,
please be mine and don’t waste my time.
love me for who I’m meant to be,
so won’t you please give me something?
because sometimes it’s hard for me to talk to you.

this–
THIS IS ALL SO MEANINGLESS,
NO ONE CARES
AND I JUST DON’T MAKE SENSE,
THERE’RE MORE DRAFTS
THAN PUBLISHED WORKS.
i have no confidence whatsoever
and i’m lacking in motivation
so how do i continue
when i have so little?
You have too many questions
For me to handle,
I appreciate your enthusiasm
And confidence.
But I am not as strong as you are,
And never as studious;
My limitations are many;
They restrict my understanding;
I can only find some answers,
Not all.
Be selective,
Kindly give me time and space;
Do not test me;
Do not annoy me.
You ask too many questions,
My friend,
Do let me stay with you.

Fancy words can't disguise it,
love is *******.

A lie to hide behind
that leaves the world covered in ashes.

I hope one of us chokes,
so you know what pain I'm in,
so I know yours.

Do I know you?
I loved you, held you
but you were a stranger in the end.

The fairytales were wrong,
and I was an idiot,
to believe that you could be mine,
without the rest of the world wanting in.

you say you feel bad
in a tone that makes it sound so believing
but why do you have to pretend,
why do you have to lie?
i am not a child,
i am not gullible enough to fall for it
and you wonder why i’m so upset,
you know what you did,
you play the victim
to make me look a fool,
what is the point to this?
just go ahead and lie,
i am used to it.

I've been trying to be more social
To step out of my own little comfort bubble
But I guess I got carried away,
I just enjoyed what new things I've done a little too much
So I apologize to those I've now annoyed
I guess I got too happy and clingy
So now I know to not be social
To just stay hidden away and disappear...
