Write a verse
Write a phrase Without direction Hazy maze Drink the vinegar Filled with rage Cut my heart Feel the pain Sink in the bizarre It'll write so nice Wander alone Soul frozen in ice Chance upon love Hope it lasts Joy fades quick Pen it all fast Pick your poison Used for a tool It's ink for art A poem's fuel
Love, anger, loneliness, joy, abnormalities, pain
What else is worth writing about And they have to happen to you or the emotion doesn't come quite to clearly
Poetries wear the pain so beautifully..
Poetry : My best friend
aren't you hearing them
calling searching breathing when dawn turns into dusk dusk into dawn they remain still quivering heaving silently dying - voices in my head
Faith or logic pick a side,
They cant coincide I've tried. This is hard I'd rather die, Than decide which one I like.
You thought he was beautiful?
Maybe so. Yet he weeps when he looks in the mirror, much like an old willow… Grasping at the earth with Cracked and tethered vines With Anger and sorrow With Insecurities drowning his roots He wonders what the sky looks like, While he’s forced to watch himself grow down He thinks “it must be beautiful” Maybe so.

can i tell you a secret?
some days, when the sky is at its darkest hue and the clouds are a light gray-blue and i write poetry. it's all about you.
She has cherry stained lips that
Curl into a smile but it’s The end of a leash without slack, A chain around your wrists That only get tighter when you Lean in to kiss Her double sided edges Her name is desire
The tragic irony is that my ocean of world feels like a drop,
and a drop from the world drags me under the current.
I will die alone
as a collection of books abandoned on an old cupboard, as a display in all kinds of libraries, and only some people understand, but fewer of which we can possibly count as good memories in writings, even as poetry. I will die alone, and remember all forms of joy the latter, as a creature that ever lived, as a flower which will not bloom again beautifully in the same place.
