Usually I lie
Whenever I say I'm fine
Except not right now

Hmm.
Surprisingly.
I feel okay
Of course, I know it's not going to last,
but I'll enjoy it while I can.
I can breathe.

I recognize that this haiku sucks but I felt the need to express the fact that I'm okay because it doesn't happen very often and I figured I should actually put it in a poem format instead of a short rant

Sarcasm is anger in disguise
Cynical wit turned into lies
Cutting and burning bridges and ties
Until I feel too hollow to even rise

Bluntness is a wonderful gift
A symptom of an allergy to bullshit
Used by people used to grit
But optimistic enough to love it

Apparently sarcasm is anger disguised as humour. I don't want to be angry, I just want to make shitty jokes.

World's shittiest friend
Disconnected from you all
Lost inside myself

To my friends on HP and in real life, sorry for being distant and not getting more involved with you guys.

You'd love to learn my secret
And I would tell you what it is
But to make and admission I would regret
Would require me to emit it exists

It's not that I don't want to tell you
I'm desperate to drop the facade
But it has less gravity than the potential ridicule
So please continue to think me odd

I'm worried about the rationalizations
That I'll be told I'm confused and it's just a phase
And since I've not confirmed these realizations
Hidden I have stayed

Truth or Dare is a bitch to play
When you can't tell friends from foes
It's even worse, having to guard what you say
Concealing the agro

Constructive Criticsm appreciated. Truth or Dare! Because there is no greater source of fun than confronting your fears in the presence of people who wish to judge you harshly. Make sure to bring your friends!!!

I can rationalize
Protect the lies
Until I forget the truth myself.

Also chocolate hoarding.

And wasting PVR space.

My eyes glance down at the empty page
No words come to me
My hands shake
I can't disappoint
But I have no inspiration
The light bulb is dark above my head
I can't think
I can't write
Until I am again
Inspired

Writer's block.

είσαι όμορφη
σαν μια ανοιξιάτικη μέρα
είσαι όμορφη
σαν τη θάλασσα
και υπόσχομαι
ότι δεν ψεύδομαι
τουλάχιστον όχι στα ελληνικά

Yeah it's Greek. You can google translate it if you want to know what it says.

Για εκείνους που μπορεί να διαβάσει αυτό
Συγνώμη
Κολλητική βραδύποδες
Πολιτικά Αλύσοπριονα
Εγο ανάγκη ένα άλογο
Πεταλούδα
Δέντρο

If you have a desperate need to read this and you do not speak Greek, don't. Φορ αλικια, τεαγαν ανδ αλυσσα, Θίς ωας ωριττεν βυ α βορεδ σλοτη.

We promised
Sister Forever
We marked ourselves
A sign of love and belonging
Until
It became cold
The air was frigid between us
Someone even said
It was like stepping into a freezer
When they walked by us
And they were right
It was frozen
We let the ink fade
And wrote something new
Adelfés Gia Pánta
It was the same thing
When translated to english
But the meaning was entirely
Different
Because there was no you
Anymore
Elpízo̱ óti tha petháneis se mia skoteiní̱ trýpa gemáti̱ me arouraíous kai ta fídia

This is for an ex-friend. I truly and deeply loath her, but I don't necessarily hope she dies, just that gets shipped to another planet in another galaxy (that may or may not sustain life). If you really want to know what the meaning of the evidently not english words are, you can translate them, they are greek.

Education is important
Even for a sloth
Except I learn different things
Like what can kill you
And what can poison you
And how to survive a wild, non-adhesified animal attack
And stuff
I think that is more important
Than Math or Science

Humans are silly. They forget how to survive in nature. That is sad :(
