It's Springtime,
And it's also wartime.
Just as the flowers that bloom,
Arise from seeds people planted,
War arises
From the seeds of hatred and bitterness
That have been planted
For a long time.
Baylee Kaye Mar 27
“never again,
not today,
will I ever let you stay.

I’ve caught the pattern,
I see the signs.
and I know it deep inside my mind.

I will not be your tool,
for you to use,
for you to bruise.

Not today,
never tomorrow.
Suffer alone through the sorrow.”

my ex friend keeps coming back to me when others leave her. I’m so sick of it.

where the snow melts in sunlight
but not shade
the scent of last nights candle accident
lingers a bit too strongly
the radio plays old classics
with a few too many commercials
old habits for good reasons
turn to excuses
the bitterness of blame
lingers where it's not meant to be
where it was fine and is now
not
I always died a senseless death at the feet of affection,
I always compromised the word compromise to this life's own zeal
My pride and keys to joy were thrown to hell,
All in the name of love so well

We were birds heading to the world of honey bees,
Yet you lost focus to the weak morning breeze.

Can't you see
That we meant to see
Beautiful life hidden beyond the seas?

I sang the love songs of hatred,
Sweet text which contained bitterness.

Can't you?
Ever wondered what raw beauty is?
I feel it now, I understand it now.
I don't like sweet people
All coated in best sugary dips
Like the artificial flavoured ones.

Rather I prefer now the raw bitterness
At least it's not coated or artificial
It's raw and honest
No matter how much it hurts
At least it is what it is
Love to taste the raw bitterness
With beauty within intact in it.
Beauty in raw whether it's sweet or bitter
That's at least truthful to how it is. No mask. Just how it is to be.

Ah bliss! I, the subliminal linguist, can't distinguish this thing that you imply with such meaning. I relinquish my hold and go down screaming.

So, I melt into oblivion because life
is a trivial pursuit I've yet to latch onto, dripping between my fingers
like water through wood cracks.

Is it my own selfishness that burns
bridges between us?

No, it's yours. You stapled a label on me that can't be ripped, stripped, or torn, but I am not your fixer-upper whore.

Does my insubordination bore you?
Tell it to my "commitment issues."
The only issue is I grew faster than you, more masterful than you.

I am not your tamed shrew.

I refuse to be used by you, friendship abused by you and your confusion with your own emotions. I am not an island in your ocean of incompetence.

Frankly, my dear, fuck this.

bitter
you remain
alone
you face the pain
there is opportunity in forgiving

Full glass
We blow our feelings away
Parallel tracks in the end
die on the same burden

And appearances and duties
They never meant to die
And these tight walls never did too

Someone needs to drown and
Someone needs to contaminate
«Are you pleased to intermediate
I just need to throw me off

All my pain, all my rage
Won’t stagnate, won’t accumulate
Today, tonight»

Empty glass
We blow our feelings away
Parallel tracks are clean mirrors
We blow our feelings to fade
And we fade, and we fake
And we fade
Sadness and euphoria.
They are bitter truths that go together,
Like zealotry and bigotry,
Or monogamy and deceit.
Sadness and euphoria: sadness the shell, euphoria the oyster.
