Steam gives you a hug
in a mournful shower.
Silhouette behind glass,
stress mixed with sweat.

Always in dim lighting.

Holding hands
Creates wet lands
More like sweat lands
Our palms become lakes
That precipitate
Oh great
He don't seem to mind
All that water dripping behind
Hope we don't cause a flood
That'd be dangerous
'FLASH FLOOD FROM SWEATY LOVE'
Maybe we should wear a glove
On the hand we share
So that there
Is no cause for dismay
YOU'RE OK!
WE WON"T DROWN YOU IN OUR SWEAT
OR BETTER YET
WE WON"T DROWN YOU AT ALL!
I laugh aloud
He asks, What was that about?
Oh great
What should I say?
Don't wanna offend my babe
But anyway
Can't lie to his face
So I say, Drowning people.
We suddenly stop
His blue eyes, pop
Right out of his face
But confusion's erased
As our sweaty hands, interlaced
Become free once again
I give a big grin
Kissing his chin
As we continue to make our way.

Hi puppies! My name is Henry, I'm 19 and a half, and my boyfriend is way better than yours!

Lactose. She got lactose
poisoning the third time.
You can eat only so many
day old, tepid spoonfuls
of ice cream until weakly,
your insides cry out.
Perpetual abuse. She's
got abuse for herself saved
for every occasion. Nightly
stumbles down ill lit alleys
that seem too much like
her home. What does
medication do when it is
over prescribed? Better
yet she thought caught in
a sweat under wet sheets
What does medication do
when not taken?
Feelings like needles
all over the body, memory
as present as present day.
Pills rattle the porcelain.
The last pained, solemn
echo of song before the
chords rest and leave her
Alone.

James McSweats the sweat
He get extremely sweaty
The sweat is kill him.

What binds us all
Is the fall the blood
The sweat the tears
The fall makes us mad
And want to get up and try again
The tears from failure make us try harder
The blood mixing with the tears and well earned sweat
The crowds cheer
I cry
Tears of victory drip down my face
I bleed it mixes with the earth and adds
To the
Victory
Of
Others

This is like me I have to get up after falling over hurdles bleeding and try again

cold sweat
cigarettes
i’ll never forget
the day we first met

as the sun set
i kinda regret
that i didn’t get
to go to lafayette

Climbing the hills to nowhere
Enjoying each step,
With sweat and exhaustion
Still with smile and joy on our faces;
Rose blooming on everyone's cheek
Top of the mountain, I see
Time comes to an end but with wondérful memories engraved in our brain.

On rainy days like this one here was just a wreck
in a short distant memory that only i can recollect,
i had to process the problems in my head to really
check on the thoughts in the air of my forehead to
break a sweat,
And you would have thought i pepped,
the people that push up my problems in a flash while
thinkin' back in this reality a man,
That i am more than them in every way to be exact
and not cocky but very optimistic to say i can.

Blood is good on muddy hands,
Worn from work,
While calluses harden.

Blood is not good,
On the blades,
That litter your dresser drawer,

In the middle of the night.

Sweat is good,
When coming off your shoulders,
From running,
In warm air,
Through your yard,
With friends around you,
Laughing at your races,
While sipping lemonade,
Under the stars.

Sweat is not good,
When its on your palms,
And the back of your neck,
And drips from your forhead,
From shaking,
And breathing to fast,
From rocking back and forth,
On the floor,
Because your brain,
Is bleeding out of your ears.

Tears are good,
On lover's shoulders,
With your hand on their stomach,
Feeling,
Life.

Tears are not good,
On phones,
Over messages,
You screenshotted from 2 years ago,
Because you just want to feel something again,
Even heartbreak

Toes are sheets of
ice
the cold
creeps under

Hands have rolled
the dice
the night creeps onward

No dirt along this path
no rising
ramparts

no skin in red light
bath
over this
frozen hearth

Every way to pick apart
the skin atop
my head

I've bled within the dark
to sleep
on feather beds

come away with me

come closer

come away with me

come closer
