have you ever cried upside down? felt the tears stream up your face down with gravity and into all the wrong places?
felt the droplets, cooling as they race away from their mirrored origin, slide over furrowed brow across forehead and temple to dampen the sliver-thin hairs— the ones that glow when lit from behind —and rest where skin meets strand?
no you have not felt these things how could you have? your world is always right side up.
I am light Always bright Jump start Give others a spark Full of zeal Always lead Take initiative Make the things continue Uplift and motivate Ready to celebrate
But sometimes I too feel low Nothing gets go I too feel blue Nothing i can pursue I too feel drained Inside pained Going in dark I need a spark Someone to hold me Deeply console me I too have my set of problems I too need to be pushed by others
**But unfortunately Finding nobody I end up writing poetry To unload and revive me finally
outa sight outa mind I haven't missed you in a while cause **** things have changed no more hoping or wishing or thinking bout you you haven't called me in over a year you been with her for over a year but then you come back even just for a second and I wanna tell you everything you've been missing how I've seen the world and found my passions how I've laughed and cried and grown without you the books I've read the people I've met wanna share them with you wanna share you with them but you'll be gone before I can utter the words before I can ask how you are before you can ask how I am you dance in and out using poetry as your vessel to remind me of what we share our mutual existence in this crazy world our coexistence back for a second you'll be gone for a minute I miss you already I've forgotten you again
Your skin glows in darkened windows Turns paste dimly similar darkness An open mouth filled with seeds Spilling roots into my feet Which twist and bend and scream As I break and fall and dive From the window above that of my own soul And roll and cry where flowers might have bloomed Inside you neck where my hand resides As the motions turn change turn upside Down beneath your skin I feel new blood flow Causes a dimmer of eyeballs invisible To none but you The quiet air is worse than loud chaos The energy that infects so many Another victim smiles for love And another lover smiles for What's there not to smile for If every face you see transforms and bends Into a likeness you can hold And in your elbows you get a spike Of tingle the arms that protect Or once was thought to do before The air grew cold and summer fell down Where I fell like a rock on glass The door shatters on my feet like before Cut open the blood of friends Ghosts left behind Who still hold you without wanting to Though they would have And empty pools with fleshed out ghosts You can't hold or hear or even see But your bones grow cold and rip your skin As you grow and change and grieve And hold yourself and all that's real For the time being And **** the straw and close eyes And disregard yourself If you never have a plan You walk into the woods and find The trees are all different With different branches to poke your eyes And make you blind And your surroundings blur Cannot walk anymore So carry me home and lay me down And rest inside my stomach and Make me breathe I'll make you breathe And cause the pump to pump Pull the lever push the switch To turn on the glowing light Inside your skin Turned away and looking at a glow That I cannot see Please feel me like I feel you Even though I said I haven't I haven't seen this light before
