I think we're so afraid of breaking
each others' hearts,
That we can't even start a conversation
in the first place.

That is unbelievably painful.
It's cruel how this world has turned out to be, is it our ego or the fear that we'll be breaking our hearts eventually?

my hands and thoughts do tremble
seeing that which i resemble
nasty snarl upon my face
reminding me i’m a disgrace
furrowed brow and clenching fist
intrusive thoughts i can’t resist
cowardly i run and hide
from everything i keep inside

A repetitive omen
that we learn to avoid
over time.
Still bad at it, but im Learning though it takes time, patience is all i have.
Even if I don't get you.
Or don't win over you in this world.
I will fight to get you in the netherland where we'll have a face to face talk.
And see if you can avoid and ignore me again.

We caress the heavens together
-Calm-
In a trance

Lost in a sea of souls
I find you hard to miss
-familiar-
I can’t escape your pull

I flow
-not with the wind-
But with you
Bending air as I go

My whole eternity is you
A blue vastness
-too great to ignore-
From my perspective

I live for you
As there is nothing else
Quite as magnetic
-although, I’m trapped for sure-

My naivete may live on
Yet even I ponder
The slight trembling in my heart
Subconscious, or am I over?

There, a world spilling with ants
So small-
Yet visible with their feats of humanity
-I can see it so clearly now-

Where once there were only specs-
Now there lay a myriad of wonders
Right before me
-the haze clearing-

My confidence
often a victim of gravity-
So steady hands always pulled me up
Right on cloud nine

I no longer feel the softness of those palms-
Once my ever-aiding life
-safety-
I have fallen out of your grasp

The wetness of tears
Staining my existence-
Yet clearing it all the same
I fall as the icy raindrops guide my demise

All hard and true-
I must accept my punishment
For I have lived on far too long
And know much too little

Seeping into reality-
I can feel every texture on my skin
Every imperfection on the ground
-forever taunting me-

Leaving the once continuous cycle-
Venturing into the unknown
Where-for once-
A seed may grow larger than a planter could ever provide

A wild flower-
Thriving in a sea of individuality
Forever smiling at the sky
Despite the abandonment
Although I let myself avoid the truth for years, I had to except it sometime.
Unfortunately, that happened much too late-
right when everything came crumbling down (much like a cloud-drained of it's rain).

The drops on my face
Cool and refreshing it feels
Hidng all my tears

You can't catch what I have
Your sympathy I avoid
The happiness that I had once
My depression destroyed

she looks at me with sad eyes
as if the is asking me to leave
to go away
as the eyes once told me to
to vanish into thin air
like the dandelion's seeds
but i stare back
trying to take in her beauty
for this might be the last time i see it
i forgot i miss her
i forgot that we had good memories
but i try to smile
or not look sad
but i can't help it
i can't stop
staring
staring into her eyes
the sad eyes that told me to leave
the sad eyes that once told me to stay
the sad eyes that were once happy
the sad eyes that i once loved to see
the eyes look away, almost quickly
as if they've seen enough
and look down at the ground
trying to avoid the sight
of another's eyes staring
the eyes that they once loved
and my eyes
kept
staring

I'm drunk
At home
Alone
Again

I met
That girl
Who's she
Again

Tight curls
That girl
Striped pants
No chance

You shot
My heart
I can't
Pretend

To be happy
Tonight
So don't @me
Alright?
No dm please
I'm fine

I must
Avoid
The things
You say

Wake up
No luck
You're done
Okay?

I miss
Those nights
Up late
We sang

You shot
My heart
I can't
Pretend

To be happy
Tonight
So don't @me
Alright?
No dm please
I'm fine

i am laying
as still as possible
i feel a small spider
gently walking across
my right eyebrow
i refuse to stir
or bat it away
if i do
you will know
i am awake
and i would rather
you did not
