My most frequent lie
is my answer to the question
Are you alright?
I say,
I'm fine.
But I am thinking,
No!
I am losing my mind!
But you couldn't care less anyway.

so i take another hit and lose my mind
my lungs filling with ashes this time

Losing a poem;
It’s a taste of dementia
The loss of a part of you
Coming apart
Lost more than paper and pen
Lost important thoughts birthed on a deeper level
Million dollar ideas only because they’re sentimental
Your only success in life
The only one that matters to you
The one that matters to you the most

It hurts so much when I lose a poem, especially a really really good one.

Rebound.
Lead him with a leash,
drag him along like the dog that has died
but you won't give up your walk.
Rebound.
You took your shot at the love
but you missed,
now you think you can give it another try.
Rebound.
Bounce back in like there's no penalty,
like hearts don't break,
as if you can simply tape it back together
and it will continue beating.
Rebound.
Just because you don't have a scoreboard in life
doesn't mean the points don't count.
Rebound.
When everything is tallied up
at the end of the day,
will you really come out on top
like you hope?

it was two years ago,
where I can have you in my arms
it was two years ago,
where I can be so happy everyday

cause I can see you
and you will always be around me
I feel like I will not going to lose you—
but no,
things like this will not happen anymore

now you got your new baby boo
it's time for me to let you go
and its ok if you're not going to be mine—
anymore
I hope you'll be happier with her

I'll never need that safe card
I don't need to be safe
I'm going to win or lose
No in between.
So let me fail,
Or let me thrive,
I'm not settling for second place.

Why did you bring me to earth?
To break my soul,
Stamp on my heart,
And crush my dreams?

Why don't you believe in your own daughter?
Just put her down,
Break her spirit,
Even make her lose her faith...
In herself, everything and everyone around her?

Why will you let your own flesh and blood,
Child,
Family,
Be discouraged,
Sad,
Insecure,
By you?

What are you?
What are you really?
Family don't do that,
You're not my family any more.

You don't deserve to be called my mother,
You're nothing more than a dreamcrusher...

What binds us all
Is the fall the blood
The sweat the tears
The fall makes us mad
And want to get up and try again
The tears from failure make us try harder
The blood mixing with the tears and well earned sweat
The crowds cheer
I cry
Tears of victory drip down my face
I bleed it mixes with the earth and adds
To the
Victory
Of
Others

This is like me I have to get up after falling over hurdles bleeding and try again

As age I lose the fear of  a turned page
New chapter, new phase
No matter what it’s my own maze
Questions of life
They awe to amaze
What’s everyone searching for?
Souls hide in a haze
Whether it’s a different
Dimension, time, Or space

Truthfully I hold the key
For it opens all eyes and doors
But still I have no use for it
The poor can see but still adore
The rich are blind and do as told
I cannot ask for fairy tales and dreams
If there is a nightmare here on earth
And we are what stands in between

Take the shot,
please don't blow it,
unless i lose it,
I'll never know it,
feeling like i'm ten feet below,
on the slippery slope , to what hell has to offer,
i'm glad that you know,
the things that we cherish, we lose,
i know that this life isn't proper,
Take a shot,
i command you,
but i don't wanna,
swear i can't stand you,
lord please just take the wheel tonight,
no more promises to fight , if you promise me we would stay
up all night,
stranger than a twilight,
trash is another mans treasure,
find it on sight,

thinking how long have i been in this condition besting all my other personalities of when i'm drunk infesting way too many signs of intoxication in ways that i would think is not good for the human brain,
if not then i don't act the same,
With life struggles you can erase,
work hard to replace the things that have been impacting all of us,
but the last of us don't need to say a thing,
locked up and get life in jail or don't really better yourself at all,
like dominoes , one day it'll be your turn to fall,
please don't let the serpent win , but you just wanna hang out with the boys,
please don't let the serpent win , but you just wanna get high with the boys,
please don't let serpent win , but you just wanna commit a crime with the boys,
oh look! the serpent at the finish line and its on you,
my boy that was your choice,

Take the shot,
please don't blow it,
unless i lose it,
I'll never know it,
feeling like i'm ten feet below,
on the slippery slope , to what hell has to offer,
i'm glad that you know,
the things that we cherish, we lose,
i know that this life isn't proper.
