At the hustings
They raise revolutionary slogans
sing a song
Hip hop hip hop
There's a fire in the air
Their valves begin to leak
Some have heartache
Some diarrhea
Former may die of heart attack
Latter of dehydration
Need immediate hospitalization
Under tight security
Others safe haven they hide
Leaving millions crying
Now they sing a song
Flip flop flip flop

I love you in ways I didn’t know true
You keep running and hiding from the truth
If only you knew
A soul contract we agreed a few lives ago
Eternal love
Made from the angels above.
Two people are all the same
If you see them in one frame
But they have two sides
The one I guess have sit besides
Two people are all the same
I think that is I am
But another's hide
And also need a guide

I paint me a smile

But today my made-up colors smudge

You can see frown visible underneath

Dim
Distressed
And too distorted to hide
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay while

gun man comes into
i try to **** him hard or
hide behind a child
Imagine your worst nightmare and watch it come true
Imagine being tortured until you are a blue
Imagine your light being stolen at the darkest point of your view
Imagine being physically mentally and verbally abused
Imagine having nothing absolutely nothing
No money or food
Imagine having no heating or energy
In your house or your body to puke
Imagine cold baths cold meals cold ******* heart too
Imagine losing love until you are completely numb through
Imagine losing your friends your family too
Imagine losing the sensation of pain and replacing it for pleasure
Imagine being conditioned
To not know any different
Imagine being me but I imagine you don’t care 🤷🏼‍♂️
You can't know my dark past
If you were to discover it,
our relationship wouldn't last
Yes, it is something I want to conceal
I was the one hurting somebody
I don't need to "heal"
You need intimacy, you need to feel
but don't focus on fleeting memories
focus on what is real

i grew up watching the movies and shows
with the sweet, grounded girl
who saves the reckless boy.

the boy tries to run away because
of his past and his fears,
but the girl always helps him come back.

i always thought i'd be the girl,
but with us,
i'm the one who fights feelings
of just wanting to run away,
you're the one who brings me back
and listens to what i'm scared of.

The words cut deep
Like the knife to my skin
I can feel the world slip away
From beneath my feet

Just laugh it off
Who cares if you’re falling
I’ll tape up the cuts
Don't let anyone in
Everyone will think I’m nuts
But maybe then I’d be safe from the pain
With nothing to gain
Nobody really knows what goes on
Inside my brain

Hidden beneath
The layers of cloth
Hidden beneath
your skin
and your tissue
and your bones
Is your heart
The one that belongs
To me
I've been trying to write a collection of romance poems! So enjoy!
