Stay sad Feb 12
I've had a lot of conversations with myself lately,
At night.
"Who told you to?"
"He made me tell myself."
"How do you know?"
"I don't."
Me, myself, I.
All different people
But all the same.
The contemptuous person behind this glass that i can't see because i'm desperately trying to see what i can't be.
I really want to know,
Who this person is i'm talking to.

You all have a little bit of
"I want to save the world", in you
I just want you to know
That it's okay if you only save one person
And it's okay if that person
Is you

I miss the person I was with you..
More than I miss YOU.
You made me want to be a better person and always strive to be better

No one...

He, she, we
No one...
Be you truly you
Be who you think is you.
Be true fully true
Be what you think is true .
Keep those
Keep them close.

No one..

ivory skin, as this paper
ebony hair, as this ink
shining, imbued with moonlight
glistening, dipped in the morn's dew

he is my friend, with
lips of roses
a nose, a thorn
and flowers, rathe in winter

she is your lover with
fangs of eggshells
eyes of marbles
blood of honey
and flesh of black lace

one mark, a fall, a
wellspring in the night
we sing the evensong
then where do we go?
I don't know what I'm feeling. This feels totally right, yet totally wrong

And so the shoe drops,
Easily, easily
It’s much easier for you to wound me,
than wear your human mask over lizard skin.
You gnash your teeth and flail your limbs,
like a ****** ******* lizard person.
How hard is it to check in when you’ve said something so worrying?
How hard is it to speak?
Or is it just that words don’t issue,
from betwixt your lizard beak?

A boy with a high voice and a little nose.
A girl with a small chest and a tall height.
A person* with femininity.
A person* with masculinity.
Why does it bother you?
After all, we’re all born *human.
sorry they offend you.

breathe. in. out.
what do you see?
computer-ruler-pen-calculator. sticky note. sticky note.
bag. chair.
what else do you see?
i don't know.
where are you?
does it matter?
who are you?
i forgot.
what are you?
Aasan hai kya,
Hazaron chehron mein se,
Uss ek chehre ko dhundna,
Hazaron Ankhon mein se,
Unn doo ankhon ko khojna,
Hazaron panno mein se,
Unn teen lafzon ko samjhna,
Aasan hai kya,
Ek shaks ko har waqt,
Har pahar talash karna,
Jiske milne se hum adhure na rahe,
Jiske hone se hum hum na rahe,
Hazaron ki bheed me,
Uss ek shaks ko dekh,
Hamari manzilen kahe ki,
yahi hai wo jaha thahartey hai hum,
Bas yahi hai wo jaha jaatey hai hum..

You left me broken.

I only hope that the next person to love me-
is able to push aside my broken pieces,
and see the beauty ,
in what is left.
Recently someone very close to me shattered my heart, but there is someone else now. He is perfect, and I hope to God that he see's through my brokenness.
