Still left somewhere in last week at the bar in between drinks
When you so casually claimed
“you know I love you”
somewhere between my heart stopping and feeling like it got plunged with a needle full of adrenaline
“you know I don’t ever wanna make you mad I just wanna make you laugh”
my smile felt somewhere between triumphant and pride
ecstatic and overwhelmed
It’s like the smoke cleared out and centered around you
why are you all I see?
how are you all that I see still?
I told you once that you have a power over me and to this day it’s still true.
I can deny it until I’m blue in the face and I have no more air in my lungs- but it’s true
But….. you love me.

I got you
I actually won this prize
I can’t get out of this haze I’ve been in and I can’t stop seeing the way your hands were moving when you told me.
your shy smile. your earnestness in your eyes.
I’ve never fought to be so relevant in someone’s life the way I fight for a spot in yours, the claws that come out when that spot is threatened feel so sharp and steadfast
Like they’d take on any and everything to be near you
And you love me.

It’s a relief and terrifying at one time. cause you can confess a love that makes flowers bloom in my chest but proclaim that love isn’t real in the next breath, so what is it that you’re trying to say? That the love you feel for me isn’t as cemented as mine feels for you? I’ve stifled my love for you, I’ve proclaimed it to you, I’ve held it steady for you, and in my heart it’s only you that holds this love and I’m not scared to give it to you, but the love you’re handing me… I’m petrified and proud to be responsible for it. It’s a heady thing, your love. I don’t want to hurt you.
Who’s in control now

I don't even care on how it be.
I am going to continue to do me.
Fast or slow, why are they stuck?
What the ****?
For real.
Ya'll need to chill
over here busting commands
Recycling hot air, false claiming as a fan
Can't handle the heat from the grill!
Get baked like an oven
I do this as if it's nothing.
Get it right.
Supply and demand
I can do this eyes closed
Look ma, no hands!
You better understand.
I am going to be grand.
One of kind, credit to Stan-ley.
Everyone be on my ****
Trying to get piece of me
I'm not candy, not the begging type
but ***** please, give me time to breathe.
Playing with my patience, is suffocating
frustrating with the fact, you instigating
I'm finalizing what I've been contemplating.
Lack of interest and motivation
Isolation withdrawn by limitations
I am not going, to make a fool of myself
I'm not Mr Satan. I'll absorb all this
like Majin Buu, blow this **** up.
No need for a demonstration...
Watch you all burn and  watch ya'll fall flat.
I Sling and I slash.
Cut you down to size. Just like that.
If I transform there's no turning back.
I'm powering up, going all the way up.
I been dealing with ENOUGH!
I have anger issues

Truthfully, honesty will set you free.
I'm staying on my turf, regardless if the surface gets rocky.
I forget with my ptsd
I fear no hollow or titan. I'm for Blood-C
Which side of us, you want? Don't you with me!!
That’s my bipolar coming in
I cannot be substituted or copied.
I can go for days to weeks without sleep.
Shadow step like a shinagami. OoooOOh.
If I was you, I would be watching my moves. True....

If they wanna talk about it. Then be about it!
You full of yourselves. This why you doubt us.
Putting on show. You fools be the loudest.
I want to keep my son every bit the proudest.
You got too many people, out here wanting to out us.
This is why I put my faith in the universe.
Before I turn you all into angel dust.
If it was up to me, I would ******* any wrong doer
by simple thought or touch
Forgive me, my mindset is bent on justice
through fighting with violence and it's a bit too much
My queen got powers only the blessed can trust.
Other people had it worse, so think before you fuss.
Think twice before you go in a rut, load the chamber
curse it all , and feed the intentions of death's lust.
Because it call could be worse, you could be part of the corrupt.
I know what it's like when it all hits and it's all abrupt.
Now before you let it go, and decide to erupt...
Imagining every impossibility, think before you self-destruct.
Here you are wondering like me.

Another ghetto rhymes and lines piece.
The darkness comes out a bit.
Forgive me, I am not perfect.

I am hurt by you.

I am hurt that I cared more about getting to know what lies beneath your skin.
(Than You did)
I am hurt that you made me feel things I haven’t felt since Him.
(Feelings I didn’t know I was capable of again)
I am hurt that you touched the places that others have been too scared to touch.
(The places that I am too scared to open up)
I am hurt that you lead me to believe that you care more about what my body can give to yours.
(Like all the rest do)
I am hurt that I believed your broken promises.
(Excuses, excuses)
I am hurt that I wanted to trust You, and only You with the most valuable thing I could offer.
(The thing that has been shattered time and time again)
I am hurt because I thought I finally found someone who valued me enough.
(Your actions say the opposite)

But I am grateful for you.
Because you showed me exactly what I will no longer tolerate.
That I am capable of connection, vulnerability, and true intimacy.
Things that I thought had died within me years ago.
Things now, that only someone worthy will receive one day.
To the first person I’ve opened up to in years. Maybe one day we’ll come together again. Ouchie but thank you.

Your body type wasn't my type
But your charisma was all the hype.
Doe Eyes made my soul cry.
But we failed : my deceit | your lies

Your femininity was never real
After your makeup a stranger was revealed.
Your confidence was fickle,
But your humor kept me tickled.

You had potential to be the one
For a split second I thought I had won
Found my soul mate or twin flame
But you were the master of mind games.

firestarter and match,
pitching endlessly to become more
smoke, then intense crimson flames,
aglow in my heart.
brick and stone edifices form a
fortress around abodes
leaving habitats adrift
and alone
passing and switching faces -- an
entourage that follows but yet
the girl is alone.
alas, fire ablaze, uncontrollable but
sometimes tame
marking the forest trail and
spreading the damage, sprout and then destroy
like a fiery divine being
destruction of the old path and
a clean sweep of the
trees that once seemed so formidable
the flame spreads with a staunch
persistence, to maybe prove that
yeah, the water is weaker
like a conquistador who
pillages countries leaving them
the flame continues
no concern about the consequence or
destruction, set on being set and
ever aglow, what puts the fierce fire
out anyways?
this started as a tribute to my triple fire placements, some dreams i've had, etc. i am a sagittarius sun, leo moon, and sagittarius rising. i've got a lot of fire inside of me and sometimes it feels like a relentless urge that i must repress 24/7. it's not that i feel misunderstood, just that this fire inside of me has been burning since my very conception. i am ever the more forced to live with it as i grow up and surround myself with different types of people.

You don't know what it's like
to be born under late june's sun,
even though it's dark outside
and the moon is shining so bright
it could claim the lion's throne.
You don't know what it's like
to be a Cancer's child,
to hear the lions roar.
This is about my zodiac sign,  I am a Cancer with moon in Leo and I often feel misunderstood and choose to close into my own little world. I don´t expect anyone to understand this either.

There is a lion up above embedded in the stars.
At midpoint between the stars and the sea, flashes a green light.
Slightly above sea level are two people sharing conversation.
And below in the deep sea are two fish tied together.

The lion roared filling the girl up with interest.
The fish stirred up the current making sure his conversation remains interesting.
The green light flashed brighter with each passing second.
Making sure they remained safe and the night remains lit.

They connected on that night.
Soul, heart and mind.
The attraction was there.
But only poems could reveal what they felt.

Forbidden and forsaken.
Yet still driven towards each other.
Old souls re connected.
Ancient feelings re visited.

but for today,
i am still alive, alive, alive
and i will taste the honey
because it is sweet.

But maybe I misread the moon.
(She never hides things for long).
You never gave me the chance
to understand why you hate me.

But maybe this is Her way of saying:
by having you completely gone
A new path can finally be cleared.
You left without saying bye.
