hesitate and wait
all the things I could say but
my mind drew a blank

rain droplets fall slow
an echo throughout the night  
I’m staying inside

possibility exists
when intent is not dismissed
poem I started but I don’t know what else to add yet :0

I want to believe

but a thought sends me so far.
chastise my shadow until im gone
pick at the lies until they scar,
words cut like knives
yet mean nothing at all
the noise has no regard
I try so hard,  no one sees
the struggle to intervene

i go extinct.
i fall in love.
i make believe
i never was.
everybody needs more time, i know i do.
im not the meek.
im not above.
im just a man
inside the love.
cant nobody understand aside from you.
thought i wasn't human -
alas, i bleed.
bodies in the forest become the trees.

you know that i love you,
i cant help myself.
the afterlife's forever, ever.

im half asleep.
im half my mom.
im not beneath,
"Its not enough".
everybodys out their mind, im overdue.
you know better than they do.
talking while im sleeping is
not unique.
thought i wasn't dreaming, then lost all my teeth.

you know that i love you,
i cant help myself.
the afterlifes forever, ever.

my tolerance is too low
to become apart of the know
to die, or burn slow
reluctant to flow
your perfect place to go
hidden underneath a rainbow
like a true indigo,
my quiet calypso

what is ideal-
the feelings would be real
and time could heal.

dreams are like silent visions
as if my participation was a given
your words are like hymns-
they reel me in.

a dead giveaway
led astray
a ridicule game
on my cliche Monday
castaway
and let my thoughts dispel
farewell to the parallel
felt deep in my cells
back on the carousel
as if it's heaven vs. hell
but I wait for the warning bell
safe inside my shell.
inspired by a short poem from Poe titled "The Sleeper"

I woke up at 1-
our friendship was done.

now it’s closer to 2-
what else could I do?

states drift us apart

accepting our end
weathers my heart

awaken to contend
you: my counterpart

my dream to escape
is now bitter fate

this is to my friend,
and how we separate.

the sign says “beware”
and toxic air is everywhere.
nightmares want you to become more aware
so it must be fair
that you aren’t the one who gets to feel their glare.
it must be easier for you to say “take care”
than to actually be there.

the adventurer doesn’t rest
but this hermit never leaves.
I swore on patience
and stitched it onto my sleeve.
they are thieves
that have the will to be deceived..
they believe anything.
happy full moon 12/12 !! this poem is about my current reality....... thanks for reading :]

That moment

There is a moment in your day when
you


YEET that empty can into a crowd full of people and SCREAM
"THIS BEVERAGE THAT I HAVE PURCHASED PREVIOUSLY AT THE MACHINE IS NOW EMPTIED OF IT'S CONTENTS PREVIOUS TO ME THROWING SAID EMPTY ALUMINIUM INTO A HALLWAY!!"

I was writing something serious but then I said why not and wrote something hideous. I happen to enjoy spicy crunchy juice water.
