The moon
one night
was bored
it asked the sun
to play ball
the game was on
Both played strong
Counting stars
to keep score

Using first
the brightest
each inning
Then the ones
Slowly dimming
It was hard to tell
as some stars fell
they lost count
on who was winning

rather than starting over
the moon lied
about the number
Scattering
some stars
Even counting
mars
It proved
to be
the loser

The sun got heated
fighting
enough of the moon
cheating
The tally was a lie
So the sun wiped the sky
The score
was back to zero
by morning

I know I can.
I just don't.

It's true, not a whine. There are so many external factors that affect winning that it no longer becomes a test of one's ability, but being in the right state at the right time

I've not lost yet!
Though Its seems I have.
Every letter spelt on the walls seem to say the same.
Even Truth has lost its true meaning.
Still,I've not lost yet.

Stopping Time from telling my story,
I tell it myself.
Grabbing the Same old tissue box for my tears
I mumble on and on without a pause.

Listen,
I've only started this walk so spare those words that judge my strides
I'm awake within my Senses,
Feeding life into dead souls,
Stopping time from telling my story,
I tell it myself.
With highs and lows between the lines
Causing life to exist in ink.
I've not lost yet!
Lifes horrors are created within the mind.
Persephone Jun 2
They flash across the screen in red, blue, and white suits
Moving like spiders, robots, gods, and soldiers
Wielding destruction charged hammers, capes, shields, and swords

A lifestyle filled with dreams and living
One with the power of winning
And a spec of losing
Until the day they turned to dust
Ashes to ashes they all fall down
I did not lose you
I just got rid of unnecessary ballast
I don't need you to feel good
I don't need you to feel loved

I just realized that you made me feel useless and ugly
I definitely haven't lost anything.

There’s this song called Budapest that I like
To be honest I don’t really know where Budapest is
But I know I’d give up a house there
I don’t know why I know that
I’m in the heart of my youth
I’m not doing anything with it
That’s the astounding thing
Sometimes I wanna take it easy
Sometimes I think I really wanna just run somewhere until my lungs collapse
And laugh
And tackle my friends and punch them
Today was weird
And I don’t know why i insist on mentioning the days in my poetry because I live enough of them
Not enough to fill a lifetime
Sometimes I think I’m invincible
And then there’s days like today, when I realize drinking a two liter of coke isn’t good for me
Especially when I’m 5’0 and it’s a fraction of my own body weight
But I do it anyway
And when I’m alone in a room practicing my own performance I feel like nothing can touch me
I feel invincible
I feel like the world has to hear my scream “I AM NOT THE PERSON I WAS FOUR YEARS AGO”
Or maybe “I’M NOT AN ILLNESS AND THIS ISN’T A POLITICAL VIEW. I’M NOT A FINALIST I’M AN EXPERIENCE”
But I never do it when I’m performing
I just forget all my lines
Still made third place
Even though I talk to the universe all the time I’ve kind of realized the universe has nothing on me
It can’t even keep its own color straight
But neither can I
Between us, though
If I could choose mine would be violent hot pink
Not because I like the color
Because it represents a person
Or I’m just crazy
But I guess I kind of appreciate youth
That is something strange
If I’ve got this life maybe I should be living it
All I need now is someone to teach me how
i can’t remember what this was

Is a life free of pain; no hunger for hope,
all that it enticingly seems?
Or is there more found in victory over a noose & a rope,
That could never be by achieving the highest of dreams?
A Apr 27
I'd buy a big house
Where all of us could stay
Together forever
Every single day

I'd buy new clothes
I'd buy you some too
We'd be so unique
Wouldn't recognise you

I'd give to those people
Unfortunate and poor
I'd just keep on giving
Til they can't take no more

I'd hang out in bars
And drink the night away
Just keep on living
A reason to stay

I'd learn how to drive
And go on road trips
I'd travel the world
On boats and ships

I'd change my body
New breasts, new bum
Erase all my flaws
Gave by my mum

I'd start a business
To help young mother's
To keep together
Sisters and brother's

I'd never be spoilt
I'd do what's right
I'd see injustice
I'd stand and fight

I'd give my sister
A brand new start
I'd give the world
Because of her heart

Money is a gift
When it's in the right hand
When people do best
When they truly understand

See I'd live each day
Bigger than ever
But I'd make it count
Forever and ever

I don't even know how to
Get to first base with the ladies any more!
All I know how to do
Is how to
Perfectly place
A Sacrifice Bunt,
But it's the bottom of the 9th inning.
My Sacrifice has been successful!
The runner is leaving Third Base
And is coming Home.
Our team is gonna' win!

That

Sensation

Deep

Inside

Charging through your heart
Ringing from your mouth

Do

You

Remember

How

It

Felt

Victory
Emotion
Passion
Devotion
Mental
Physical

Extraordinary

Everything
Comes
Together

In a single
Fraction
Of a
Second

Standing
Stark
Against

A constant moving backdrop
Of time

Do you remember
Can you remember

The last time
You
Felt
Something
So
Real

That it
Stirred
Your
Spirit

Until
It
Came
Rushing out

Faster than hot steam

And everything stopped

For a moment

Your moment

And the
World
Heard
You
Roar
