The
Princess
Trapped
In a tower
I built

Held
Captive
By her
Fear and hope
Not sure

Which
One scares
Her more
But one day
She must

Stop
Waiting
Cause no
One's coming
For her
Verse 1:

I know you're feeling
Upside down
Hey, aren't we all like
That some days

I see your waiting
For some help,
I hope you find that
Saving grace

Just know that
This time it,
It can't be me

You know I
Love you babe
But **** be craz

Zy

Chorus:

No I ii I'm
Not gonna to save you
Anymore

It's ti ii me
Someone showed you some
Thing more

Than a life in
And out of
Captivity

When are you going
To be your hero
To set your
Own Self free

No I ii I'm
Not gonna to save you
Anymore

Verse 2:

Got problems
Of my own
Can't be your peach

Been up and down
That well
Lived up on crazy beach

Too many rhymes
All the ****
Mind
Over
Matter
Skipping to a
Rapper named Dave

Chappelle *******
Like a rapper
Raps
Black
Leaking on to
White and *******

Up
Like Thomas
Mother-*******
Jefferson

Grandpa
To All
Us

Listening
To giants
Sitting
In a bee
House

Bowing to the
Queen Bee
Be
Blue
Joe Smith
Yo Smith like

I got the lights
I've seen the sights
Been to Mount Rushmore
Slept with a ****

Dave
Psychodrama
OWO

Got me twisted
Feeling sick and
Tired of saving

The same ****
Princess
Every time

Chorus:

No I ii I'm
Not gonna to save you
Anymore

It's ti ii me
Someone showed you some
Thing more

Than a life in
And out of
Captivity

When are you gonna
Be your own hero
To set your
Own self free

No I ii I'm
Not gonna to save you
Anymore

Verse 2:

Find your own story...
I've got my own story too
I can't be the Mario

Be the guy that always
Watching over you

Your not the only
One sitting with a crown
You know

It's time you
Went solo

Got your own show

Taste a star
You'll go far
Shine of
Rainbows

Sick of all
This back, forth
Up, down

It's time you
Run the Kingdom like
I run this town

Don't say
The N word
Though I'm not half black

I was
Raised by a mommy
Who blacker than black

She a Goddess
A sun
A reptile
A gun

She got tricks
Up her sleeve
Only black magic

Get
Her
Done

Farm boy raised
Mommy's vegan
But I love animals too
Much

Still
I'm trying
There dying
I know
But

Chorus:

Find your own story...
I've got my own story too
I can't be the one always
Watching over you

Your not the only
One sitting with a crown
You know

It's time you
Went solo
Got your own show

Taste a star
You'll go far
Shine of rainbows

Sick of all
This back, forth
Up, down

It's time you
Run the Kingdom like
I run this town

Run through expensive hotels
Just to come home, play Mario Kart in our underwear
A high-stake love, we burn like fire and cry like monsoons
Holiday flashes become traditions,
Movements of our hands and our arms keep the peace
The making of our love sneaky and frequent.

Ask you to run away with me into the moonlight
To never be seen again
Messy wild and barely free
Eighteen with too many cares and too many scars to hold alone
So let's hold them together
You can't heal my wounds
But you help relieve the pain

Four hands and two hearts ache for one another
Let's build a fort under your desk
Stay there till the morning light.
Movies I can't help to sleep through
Making out through every *** scene
l'll spoon you, kiss your bare back
Hold you tighter than

Drive until there's no more road,
Hands on knees light in the rearview mirror
driving in lingerie just for the ******* risk

Showers shared soothe the soul so hold me close and dear
Wash my hair and I'll wash yours.
The spot in my back that only you can reach.
Feel your heart beat through your chest
Your wet hair slicked back
Piercing blue eyes that melt me like wax and a flame
you are my flame.

We're messy and wild and inconsistent and angry and loving and full of so much.
Keep me safe and ill keep you wild
Until you return, my dear.

I've seen criminals act heroic,
Heroes walk as thieves,
Humans must be at a steady downfall
Because all I see are leaves
Tarzan stood half monkey, half man
Until he let all those apes escape
Now he's running with Specter in this primate land.
I play mario in a tanooki suit, as a statue would stand
Sure he could take on a world of weight,
But I still miss the days he wore a cape.
See because you only get one master ball to capture,
Still unable to catch a politician who isn't a lying *******.
I am backed by deep words quoted by Mewtwo
Even in minds they create from scratch, they won't believe you.

The heartless can swallow your heart whole
Leaving your shell cold, walking as a nobody
Created as a somebody glitched through the system like Xion
When no one remembers your soul what planet would you be on
Fighting for a right like Seifer  versus Leon.
I am looking at a world frozen like Shiva's diamond dust
With Eve pumping through my veins,
Getting stronger, selling all the Adam in my clutch.


You will never find me, how I look no one knows
I'm a master of disguise with a Poppit full of clothes
I'm storing all that I know in my roots
Collecting memories like wumpa  and paopu fruits
Stealing loot from crooks like Captain Hook
As time tick-tocks, in time we are all late
So follow the white rabbit, this red pill won't wait.

They say depression is a flaw in chemicals
Not character
But this character just wants out of the game.

I feel like Pac-Man sometimes,
Repetitively swallowing antidepressants
Whilst being chased by the ghosts of my past.

I'm slow dancing with space invaders -
A two-step, one step wrong
And game over.

I'm sick of being told
My happiness is in another castle -
Tell the psychiatrist the mushrooms aren't working -
I've been running into gumbas on purpose,
Used up too many 1ups,
Next time there won't be an option
To revive.

I'm so bad at this game called life -
I don't think I'll ever see
The credits rolling, the
"Congratulations you've won the game"
And a part of me
Doesn't want to either.
The last in a series of 5 poems.
I should waste more time revising. I feel as though it may benefit me; may I extrapolate the fact I stated waste more time, not spend. I could use that time practicing songs on my bass or beating Mario’s *** on the GameCube. I feel mediocre but that’s okay because I AM mediocre; and a sell-out. I should make that point clear. I smoke; not like a chimney, it depends on if I feel like combusting into a cloud of tobacco ash. I would happily crementate my being. I would happily get hit by a car and become the road ****. I would happily fall from a concrete building into a six foot deep cavern. Passive suicidal thoughts at eight in the mourning; just like coffee but it doesn’t make you need to ****. Just those bitter moments you need to get your day started on the wrong side of the bed.
Excuse my spellings of combusting and crementate...both mean to burn in some way or another... This was the only time i stressed about exams and i never really stresses. im glad its over. i do smoke a lot more now.

Mi táctica es mirarte
aprender como sos
quererte como sos
mi táctica es hablarte

y escucharte
construir con palabras
un puente indestructible
mi táctica es
quedarme en tu recuerdo
no sé como, ni sé
con qué pretexto
pero quedarme en vos.

Mi táctica es ser franca
y saber que sos franco
y que no nos vendamos simulacros
para que entre los dos no hayan telón
ni abismos.

Mi estrategia es en cambio más profunda y más simple,
mi estrategia es;
que un día cualquiera
ni sé cómo, ni sé
con que pretexto por fin me necesites.*

― Mario Benedetti
