You dont want me
He didnt want me
They wont want me
I've never wanted me
For I am too introverted for hookups yet I desire intimacy no one I know wants from me regularly

Listen... I said I was

•F• alling Apart
•I• nsecure
•N• eglected
•E• mpty

So if I say that I'm •FINE•.... I'm •FINE•... I'm not lying to you...
Its just some are too stupid to realize what the word •FINE• actually means...
There's nothing like running
your fingers through wheat
as you take a footpath
through the farmer's field
especially in the dead of night
when the silence speaks volumes

Though I wouldn't know
'*** I'm a city boy
I always say
a life better lived on
the road less travelled
clearly wasn't for me

Cloudy days and
cloudy apple cider
go hand in hand
with hand rolled cigarettes
and unread messages
and a qwerty keyboard

Things are gon' get better
things better get gone
have I neglected my writing
or has my writing neglected me

Thoughts are just electricity
surging through your brain
tiny little electrical impulses
molecules and whooshy stuff
I could do with some of that

achild i was with a mind of my own
you came and snached it i just havent grown
left in me in gutter yup thats where ive been thrown
your heart so dark so cold like a piece of stone
how could you do that to your own
aching flesh and bone
that house we live in, fading in thee unknown
still stuck in the age seven, i just havent grown
rocking myself, scratching i feel so alone
hypocoristic , narcissistic, pessimistic, you wear like your fav cologne

Growing up was a hardship
Suffered through some tough times
My parents got divorced
I didn’t even want to be alive

Went through years of therapy
And was given the diagnosis of having ADHD
It’s true that I wanted some attention
But wanted to seek it from my family

I kept trying to tell them what was wrong
But they just wouldn’t listen to me
And being as young as I was at the time
People thought that I was simply crazy

Taking all kinds of medication
But the solution was simple, all I needed was love
And as I grew older
I learned to find that love from above

Life can be difficult at times
And it’s never what I expected
But I’m reminded that there is at least one person there
So whenever I need him, I am no longer neglected
Some people don't realize how good they've got it. Having both parents in your life is something we take for granted sometimes. Others may only have one and some have none. For those who don't have anyone, remember there is always someone who is watching over you. There is always someone who is willing to listen when you need someone to talk to. But whoever you have in your life, appreciate them. Cherish them. Love them.

I see you around
but you don't see me.
I'm here,
I'm reaching out,
but it's in vain.

I'm hurt,
what can i say.
I feel like you forgot,
I feel like i'm not important,
but i know it's not true.

It can't be true.

Before his teen age
turns the pages he dies
a life through years
of neglect for the frail
bony frame drowsy feet
dark sunken eyes
wandering the street
craving white pure
pleasures and dreams
sores moon crater arms
tributaries of ****
star marks parched skin
dry bloodied screams
of glorious pills injecting
intoxicated stuffs
forbidden fruits
trappings of worldly heaven
addictive octane ecstasy
tiger terminator of
a young man flourishing
now depleted sad
youth corrupted by a love
pursued but lost
eyes vacant trailed tears
pleading please forgive
me mom and dad
A life lost through drug addiction.
could they not see
was it my breath
what words
stumble from me

we seen her
covered her

tire swings swirling
the dust under her feet
how young

she dances
on the
she is
winters protected

heartbeats neglected

wrote after reading write
the write we read
was turned
titled changed
