Poetic T Apr 2020
It was my birthday, the year
   of a curse I never asked for..

         ****** from the temple
of solitude.

Now I just breath
                      dissatisfaction,
that every 365 days I'm meant
                to celebrate the
incarceration of life..

Its overrated..

Blowing out memories,
       smouldering resentment
Inhaled when I've lived another
                   moment to the finish line..

Why is it taking so long..

Happy Birthday Day to me,
          I'm another year older
                       of my lame existence ...

I'm the candle burning out,
my breath smouldering as I
                   hold my chest..

Oh' well least I don't have to wait
another year..

My only regret...
                          I didn't get a slice of cake..

what is love?
is it small
or is it big?
is it red
or is it yellow?
is it daily life
or the dying stars
at night?
is it pure joy
is it a hallucination?
something our minds form
something that doesn't
exist?
is it something we
have to pay for?
something so ****
overrated
that when it comes along
everyone is disappointed
isn't it just
a heartbreak when
you least expect it?
is it actually pain?
love is overrated
love is underrated
depends on how
your life's been going
it gives you
life and death
take your pick
which is worse?

"is it just a heartbreak when you least expect it" is probably, til this day, my favourite line i have ever come up with.

It has a lot of hype so I'll just say this
Mysterious is overrated
You say you have other sides to see
But hiding sides just sounds like fear to me
It's the chase that makes you fall in love
But there's no love once I've caught up

Imagine living a scripted life,
perfect image, born and

Stress.

the depth of my soul can only be expressed
           among the midst of burning
                                      hearts &
                                               raining
                                             eyes.
the maze of my thoughts can only be
                                                                spoken
         through              br  o  k e n,
                                         ink-
                                              -d-i-p-p-e-d   hearts.
only when my mind is
                                                 bent &
                                          curled &
                                   swirled &
                                         l o s t
can my words begin to mean something.

only when my head is                  light &             hazy

& my perception compares to that of some
drug-
        -fueled
                 frenzy,
can my words be
                                                  beautiful.

but i am happy,
                                 for the most part.

& so my words fall
                                                  off
                                                                                      the                    pag-

                                                                                                            -es.


& they mean nothing.
just some
simple
empty
ramblings.

of a newly
normal
girl.

Lynterns, Be-U-terns....
The endless possibilities of these Lanterns poems, I swear! ^-^
Chasing perfection leads to unhappiness.
There'll only ever be one you, embrace it. ♡
Love you guys!
Thank you!

It ***** and it won't be good,
You are okay but you're not best fine at all,
Your name is not everyone wants to hear,
I broke, I broke the mirror in front of me,

As i see my blood flowing through my open wounds,
Normal is Overrated can't feel the greatest will come,
Did you just see the girl looking at that ****** mirror glass??
She is a shame for her family, She is still the same as far as i know,

Its clearly we aint be the best,
You excel but not farther enough to make a change,
Your mind is not bright enough, or maybe people wanta to say you're not good enough....

I punch the mirror as strong as i can again,
I don't care if it hurts, It just i don't want to be just a copy anymore,
A copy who is not unique but a....
A Normal Overrated Average Girl, It always fits for me.

people go on and on and on
about the love they have for their boyfriend, fiancee, wife
thousands of books and tv shows alike
dedicated to what we deem to be the answer to everything

obviously if you have a significant other you must be happy right?
isn't your life all together? oh well, could be worse
you could be single
you could be alone

you could be
but i am happy. with me myself and i alone
