The good times are now
We’re just too blind to see
Having the power to change
While only practicing being lazy
Kids are popping beans
Not really listening to he
Or appreciating the **** this life has brought we
People on other continents living like dogs
While our dogs live like royalty
I wish these thoughts in my head
Could be a reality
One where you’re no longer judging me
One where my brother cousin and mother could coexist
One where everyone doesn’t yet realize they want to live
One where our food and water is clean
And the government wants to see the people healthy
One where violence is a thing from the past
One where you and me enjoy life and smoke grass
But selfishness is being found in all our crevices
And now we’re hiding all our fetishes
Kicking back with sedatives
Ignoring what’s real
Ignoring how another feels
Finding substances to replace
When we know it’s only love we should chase

Filthy lies

Spread across

Blank canvases

Young minds


Like milk

Left out in the sun
warped young minds becoming who the world told them to be, So much wasted potential.

The pawn
The soldier.
The warrior.
And the first to die.
Used by his king.
Killed by his enemies.
Remembered by no one.
In a kingdom,
Where the royals prevail,
There is no room
For a measly soldier.
Rougher than a knight.
Weaker than a bishop.
Shorter than a rook.
And powerless against all.
The pawn protects,
Everyone but himself.
Such wasted talent.
Love the light in the sky, moon on the clouds, the wind tickling your hair, the rain licking your skin. In a life being lived you have these things, whether you take them in or believe you are waiting, for the right time is now because time can not be saved
Seems we are waiting for what has not happened all the while we are paralyzed indecision time is passing us.
People started looking up to me
I got overwhelmed of the feeling
It's exhausting sometimes, you'll get too tired maintaining.
I'm not perfect. I fail.
Just like any other human being.
I get anxious and depressed and it is truly frustrating.
When I make mistakes, people get surprised.
I don't understand?
Am I not allowed to cry?
People don't take me seriously
So I sit here patiently,
Wishing that people would treat me differently.
I was told not to worry,
But to always stay bubbly
And so I did.
I made people happy
But the process wasn't so lovely.
Time should be treated wisely
But here I am floating aimlessly.
In this world full of misery,
I became a mystery.
Am I happy? I try.
I make mistakes. I cry.
In my head I have to hide
These feelings should never survive.
I should bury it they said
And with all my might,
My pride went along and died.
I'm lost. Alone
Thinking, "where have I gone wrong?"
Was I too much?
Was I too kind?
Or did I let my emotions collide.
Ah, I didn't realize I slowly let my soul die.
At the back of my mind I asked myself again,
Why did you have to lie?
It's too late to realize that I was now already gone.
If you get lost along the way, it's okay. Don't be scared. All will be alright and we'll find ourselves. Claim it!

I made it clear
I wasn’t looking for anything besides your friendship.
I confided in you and told you my deepest fears and insecurities.
I was vulnerable,weak, and intoxicated
You used this to your advantage
As I stumbled, pushing you way, I tried to say no. Please stop.
You continued running your hands along my body ******* me like it was a game
As I stumbled, pushing you away, I tried to say no. Please stop.
Your grip tightened on me to the point that I have a physical reminder of what you did
As I stumbled, pushing you away, I tried to say no. Please stop.
You saw me only as an object. Something for your pleasure
I stopped stumbling and stopped pushing you away. My no turned into tears as I realized you weren’t who you said you were.
I’m scared to see you again because I know we both think differently about that night.
You were sober. I was not. You said yes. I said no.
You had the choice to walk away and you didn’t

It's almost one AM
And I'm still thinking of you
And how your hands touched me
Like my body was a land to explore
Cliché dreams gone to waste
But I still endlessly loved you.
It's almost two AM
And I'm still thinking of you
And how your lips tasted
Like the leftover cheap whiskey
Cliché dreams dwindled to dust
But I still carelessly loved you.
It's almost three AM
And I'm still thinking of you
And how your eyes sparkled
Like icy oceans meeting deep seas
Cliché dreams faded to grey
But I still senselessly loved you.
It's almost four AM
And I'm still thinking of you
And how your voice sounded
Like rasp and rough melodies
Cliché dreams turned to nothing
But I still mindlessly loved you.
It's almost five AM
And I'm still thinking of you
And how your body smelled
Like stale ***** and strawberry wine
Cliché disappeared to air
But I still hopelessly loved you.
It's not six AM
And I'm tired of thinking of you
And how you made me feel
Like a powerless, punch-drunk fool
Cliché dreams I won't hold on to anymore
Since I've learned to stop loving you.

Including the hangover,
                                       that's two wasted days.

Zero craves to be the one,
   one in many ... but many a few!
One craves to be as two,
   two in surrender ... but many will do!
Two craves to be as three,
   three as family ... but many will come!
Three craves to be as before,
   before in harmony ... but many undone!

Two as one became you and I;
   my little eye ... we begin with I!
   We, so little, little of time,
      with chances away ...
      but what for today?

Today is two, three more to go,
   till five is done ... now two to enjoy!
   Time is little, little, but vast,
      and wasted on youth ...
      and for tomorrow? ... time?

Your taste is in my mouth
Burning the back of my throat
Like all the liquor I've been drowning myself in
We both didn't want each other

Each morning waking up with you was another headache
I would would spend the morning in the kitchen
Closer to the bottles
Further from you

It was all perfect at first
Two broken hearts finding something new
But here I am now
No longer broken, but annihilated

We connected so fast
But your connection was toxic
You needed me to save you
But you wanted me carry you

Instead of taking all your weight
I talked you through my heart
That ******* maze of misery
Showing you how to navigate the pain, the lonliness

You wanted validation for your mistakes
I kept hanging around
Wanting to see the improvement
It never showed

There was never a chance for us to blossom
Because my blossom already happened
And my roots were ripped out
You just finally put my in the trash

Now I can see what all this was
My attempts to reclaim some lost love
You were never right for me
I was never right for you

All that time was a waste
Nothing changed
I'm still drinking my heart into a darker hole
Watching blackness take my mind

Waiting for someone
Waiting for my heart to call me back
To the sandy shores of my memory
Where waves of emotion hit me

Each wave reminding me of a better time
This was only year one in a new place
Cheers to a new year with a little less suffering
And a little more love
A full year has gone by in a new city. Seen a lot, done a lot. Going to quit drinking so much and start taking care of myself more. A sober mind might make things better. idk, I'm feeling blue again.
