Experiment
Gray Jun 2018
Empty white room only a light bulb remains.
“Stay here, and think.”

About what? Nothing to do, but look.
Looking at the light bulb.

Blank room.
Empty mind, empty mind.

They slam the door behind them.
Left alone for the first time.

Empty room.
Blank mind, blank mind.

What am i supposed to think about?
I plop myself onto the white floor.

Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing.
Light bulb hangs.

I stand up.
Walk towards.

Light bulb.
Pull switch.

Click!
Light!

But the room already was lit,
Despite the lightbulb being out.

Please, remove me from this place.
Blank mind. Empty room.

I have no light bulb inside my head.
They are disappointed.

Conflict
Gray Jun 2018
I just cannot stand confrontation.
It’s simply the worst possible frustration.

Nothing can escape the spiteful comments that people thoughtlessly threw aside.
Might as well call it the friendship suicide.

All this yelling gets me feeling so worn out and tired.
Leading to me being uninspired.

I end up losing all forms of motivation,
And rather stay hidden completely in isolation.

Why would i want to stick around and listen to my friends argue?
It would be toxic to absorb in that painfully dark hue.

I would rather be alone than experience anymore confrontation,
After all I believe it to be one of the worst traits of any given conversation.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we all just get along?
Why keep contributing to making everything go so horribly wrong?

Tortilla Lover
Gray Jun 2018
How do you know when someone is running out of ideas?
Well perhaps it’s when they start to talk about tortillas!

I don’t think it’s silly to talk about this circle made of wheat.
As a matter of fact i believe tortillas are rather neat.

Every single chef I've met has never disapproved,
And if i did somehow did meet one I’ll just have to get them removed.

If you eat a tortilla i promise that you’ll beam a great big smile,
And if you somehow don’t then i promise you that you’re in denial.

I'm guessing that you are done talking about this topic that you don't seem to adore,
Unless perhaps you liked to talk to me just for a little bit more?

Soy Milk
Gray Jun 2018
Today i got made fun of because my mom decided to name me after a certain dairy product of soy.
People sure do love to make fun of me just as if i was some cheap stupid toy.

I mean, there’s nothing wrong with my name because it’s certainly not hurting anyone.
If you disagree with me i think you need to get all your priorities redone.

I should be used to everyone saying that i am weird,
But on days like today i wonder if it would be better if i suddenly disappeared.

I’m just going to pack up my things now and quietly go.
What’s the point in being alive if you cannot take it in all nice and slow?
Jun 2018 · 315
Gone
Gray Jun 2018
What would happen if i suddenly got up and left you?
If i did so i might never return and basically start anew.

I never liked being around when you were.
You would always mock me and her.

Maybe when I’m gone you’ll realize that we actually mattered.
And if you decide to not don’t worry our worlds have already once been shattered.

In a couple years we might run back into each other again,
But let’s not worry about that until that happens then.

Everlasting
Gray Jun 2018
Feelings that never end.
Over and over again they repeat.
Readiness to stop is unknown.
Each day each moment.
Venturing off into a timeline unknown.
Everything no longer makes sense.
Reckless behavior is bound to happen.

Mind your Mind
Gray Jun 2018
Something we all need in life.

An exceedingly useful helper to keep one together.

Nonsensical  people are sure to be lacking.

Inside your head you might be able to locate

To become whole again.

You’ll be more prone to yield before no man.

Concealed
Gray Jun 2018
I scooped up a shovel full of dark brown dirt.
The midday sun beats down causing sweat to drench my t-shirt.

Soon this will be all over, right?
I guess i’ll feel more at ease when it becomes night.

Another scoop of thick hard soil.
With each motion i feel my burning arms recoil.

I cannot believe i got myself into this.
This is something I’ll definitely never be able to dismiss.

Is it wrong that I am barely feeling guilty?
I think i’m more concerned how my clothes are so filthy.

I roughly once again dig deep into the earth with a large amount of force.
Perhaps there will be one day where i’ll finally feel remorse.

Finally the hole is covered.
Fingers crossed that it doesn’t ever get discovered
Gray Jun 2018
Guess what?
I just ate an entire coconut!

Shell and all,
Because i aint a weakling y’all!

At first i must admit it was hard to crack,
But you guys know strength is something that i don’t lack.

Gosh the milk inside was ever so refreshing.
I swear to you those coconuts are a real blessing!

Oh great I’m once again starting to get hungry.
Do you guys want to share some among us three?

If not, i guess that’s alright,
But i think it would be best if you got out of my sight.

Strawberries are Inspiring
Gray Jun 2018
There’s only one single thing in this world that isn’t at all scary,
To save you some trouble, I’ll let you know it’s a nice firm strawberry.

The color of the amazing thing is a fine deep shade of red.
I guess it’s easy to tell that i eat nothing else instead.

Their sizes range from big to small,
But that doesn’t matter to me because I’d still eat them all.

The nasty green leaves are located on the top,
And if you ever ate that part can you please stop.

Each mouthful of a strawberry fills me with total wonder.
To conclude, any other food is a denfinate blunder.

What I Am
Gray Jun 2018
Without you i am as full as a new refrigerator
Without you i am as loud as a broken radio.
Without you i am as useful as the wrong screwdriver.

Without you i am as full of life as an used up battery.
Without you i am as bright as a burned out lightbulb.
Without you i am as calm as a heart attack.

Without you i am as soothing as a rock and roll band.
Without you i am as warm as a tub of vanilla ice cream.
Without you i am not myself.

Fever Dream
Gray Jun 2018
He is ill today.
He needs to sleep.
He cannot for he isn’t feeling okay.

His mind is drifting into the deep.
Everything he is imagining is distorted.
Perhaps it wasn’t a wise idea to count sheep.

His unreal body is slowly being contorted.
Why are things going this way?
This experience is truly horrid.

He was ill yesterday.
He needed to sleep.
Yet doing so made everything less okay.

The Chosen One
Gray Jun 2018
Psst! Hey do you want to join my faithful religion?
Great! All you need to do is be completely devoted to the mighty gray pigeon.

Admire its wings that have a color so bold.
They are mightier than iron, or so I’ve been told.

What should you do if you are ever scared?
Just remember that the pigeons have always cared.

Our faith in pigeons is one that’s marvously strong,
Because believing in anything else would definitely be wrong.

The only thing we need is to be one with this bird.
The pigeon is the only creature left that isn’t absurd.
Whenever i feel down i write weird nonsensical things i guess

Man Let’s Go Get Mangoes
Gray Jun 2018
Every time i taste a sweet mango,
I just want to stop everything and dance the tango!

It’s just so good!
If i could eat a million mangoes, i would!

I think it’s a good idea for me to give up everything and become one.
Doesn’t that just sound like a whole lot of fun?

Man oh man mangoes are so so nice!
I don’t think I have to say that twice!

The best part of it all is that it’s just so juicy.
My love for the beloved mangoes is larger than the mighty blue sea.

Loving them is something we all must believe.
If you refuse, you might as well just leave.

Explain to Me, Please.
Gray Jun 2018
Before i got out of bed everything was going okay,
But that’s before i knew that this was going to be the last good day.

I come out of my room and noticed my family gathered around.
The feeling in the room was painfully profound.

“What’s going on?” I asked in confusion.
I only wanted to end this feeling of exclusion.

Each one of them responded with a slight whine.
Their answer sent a shiver down my unsure spine.

“Please, I am very confused,” i say this time more intensely.
The fear building up inside was growing immensely.

Someone softly whispers, “Come on dear, just go back into your room.”
I can tell by their tone that they’re full of dreadful gloom.

Without hesitation i start to walk away.
What is with them today?

Sadly Employed
Gray Jun 2018
Here i am again working at my uneventful office.
If I am here any longer i think i am going to be nauseous.

Just simply being here is extremely boring.
To prove that to you just listen to my coworker snoring.

I am literally tired all the dang time.
And to be honest I am barely making a dime.

I’ve been here so long I don’t even care anymore.
Do you think anyone would care if i just died right here on this carpeted floor?

Everyone around me is braindead and cruel.
Maybe i shouldn’t have dropped out of highschool.

Finished Dalliance
Gray Jun 2018
Today I’ve just sat quietly in my desk chair.
All that’s on my mind is her potential affair.

How long has this all been happening?
I am no longer believing that this is something I’m only imagining.

For the passed six months she has been coming home late in the night.
The look on her lovely face indicates that everything's not alright.

I look at the clock, and it’s already way passed nine.
Nothing is turning out absolutely fine.

I open my desk drawer and pull out my old forgotten friend.
Tonight I will soon reach the final dead end.

Affection
Gray Jun 2018
The blanket is warm.
I am not like the blanket.

My room is warm.
I am not like my room.

The stairway is warm.
I am not like the stairway.

The kitchen is warm.
I am not like my kitchen.

The inside of my fridge is freezing.
I am freezing.

Uncertain
Gray Jun 2018
What do i like to eat for dinner?
Well, I certainly don’t eat concrete,
Or a old moldy beet,
Or a comfortable seat,
I would never eat any of those, which would make me thinner.

What do i like to eat for supper?
Well, you would never see me consuming cuddly teddy bears,
Or long wooden stairs,
Or that strange green carpet i once found upstairs,
Eating any of those would surely cause me to suffer.

Oh? You’re actually curious of things i would eat?
Maybe i’d eat a big plate of cooked meat,
Or even a big bowl of something made from wheat,
Perhaps something that’s extremely sweet,
Eating any of those would undeniably make any meal complete.

Diet Soda Can
Gray Jun 2018
You tossed me on the heated ground.
Clank!
The way you could just get rid of me makes me astound.

One moment, you’re holding me tight in your firm hand.
Slurp!
Now I am resting here on the scolding beach sand.

I understand that you were once thirsty,
Argh!
But was it worth it because now this place is *****?
Jun 2018 · 254
Misunderstanding
Gray Jun 2018
I look you deep into your eyes.
Why am i not able to see passed this new disguise?

All you are is a horrible monstrous fake.
What else more will you be able to take?

With your personality that’s is ever so brutally cold,
I will make sure that in your future you will never ever be extolled.

I know for a fact that you’re disgusting from within,
But now it’s getting harder to tell just by looking at your lovely skin.

Oh, soon I will physically not be able to endure this excruciating pain,
I realise now that you’ll only be satisfied when I have finally been slain.

I might as well send myself off while giving you my best wishes,
Because at sunset it’s destined that I will be sleeping with the fishes.
Gray Jun 2018
Opening up my front wooden door,
I already know it’s going to be an exciting day once more.

People. People. There’s so many.
People. People. A supply that’s plenty.

Down the street on a morning stroll.
It’s hard to be kept under control.

People. People. Never suspecting.
People. People. Always inspecting.

Alongside the sidewalk a dog frantically barks.
Luckily for me i managed to hold in my spiteful remarks.

People. People. I’m obsessing.
People. People. Keep you guessing.

It’s easy to notice your neck so fragile.
Perhaps today I’ll be more agile.
Gray Jun 2018
Boys and girls please gather around,
For today I’ll show you the new coolest thing in town.

This new thing is something that I am very proud to introduce,
Because today i am here to show you how to properly drink apple juice!

Now now, I bet you’re all think I am being cheesy,
Because drinking apple juice is something that’s incredibly easy.

Please settle down and allow me to declare,
That you have been doing it all wrong for awhile now, I swear!

I bet y’all just simply pour the apple juice in a boring old glass.
I’ve gotta say I’d give that way a pass.

The way that’s “normal” is obviously lame.
And if you think it’s fun then I’ll put you to shame.

In order to properly drink apple juice,
You must first go locate the Magic Moose.

Who is this Magic Moose i bet you’re currently wondering,
Well, the Magic Moose is a creature that’s extremely thundering.

Once you find him, you’ll be a step closer to finding your desired fruit,
But next you have to challenge him and ending the most perplexing dispute.

“What member of Magic Moose’s family is vegan?”
To save you some future trouble, the answer is Meghan.

The next step is- wait wait! Where are you all going?
Come on, don’t you want this amazing information that i'm bestowing?

Oh great. Now i'm talking to myself.
How come no one even listens to an intelligent elf?

Toby
Gray Jun 2018
I can only name one person that truly knows me,
And that wonderful guy’s name is Toby.

Whenever i am feeling under the weather,
That guy is able to piece me back together.

Sometimes things happen to me that are very unplanned,
But luckily for me Toby is always there to lend me a helping hand.

Even if i am feeling even slightly lonesome,
Toby manages to make everything feel so wholesome.

I am always striving to be just like him,
Because then this big world wouldn't feel as grim.
If I am going to be completely honest, I literally just based this off my favorite character from The Office...

Redundant
Gray Jun 2018
Isn’t it weird that you can take a nap and still wake up tired?
What’s the point of napping if it just makes me feel worse than before?

Isn’t it weird that people drink decaf coffee?
What’s the point of drinking coffee if it isn’t going to be caffeinated?

Isn’t it weird that i think these are weird?
What’s the point of me complaining?

Royal Amphibians
Gray Jun 2018
Just let me sit here isolated on the kitchen floor.
Please, don't mind me. I rather not be a bother anymore.

If only me and her hadn’t kissed.
Now, it’s something i yearn to be dismissed

I don’t understand why they even care.
It just allows me to sink further into despair.

It’s honestly cold here where i sit.
I should get help, i admit.
Kissing a frog can can salmonella!

Inadequate Performance
Gray Jun 2018
So there i am, up on the stage.
Frantically trying to make myself feel assuage.

But it’s hopeless.
The crowd is soulless.

None of them are laughing at any of my jokes.
Perhaps i might of misspoke?

“Get off the stage you useless freak!”
Someone from the front row decided to shriek.

Abruptly my already anxious head is hit with an unyielding blow.
What is this red goop? A bright red tomato?

As i quickly walk off the stage i stuff my hands into the pocket of my jeans.
Well, i guess my dignity tonight was smashed into smithereens.

Undesired Goodbye
Gray Jun 2018
This isn't great.
He left going straight towards the interstate.

He never even gave us a proper farewell,
or didn't decide to dwell.

I think i just got used,
and permanently bruised.

Dreams are Only Dreams
Gray Jun 2018
I wish i could let go of all my cares.
Just as if they were all feathers scattered in the air.
My problems fly up left,
And my worries drift away towards the right.

I wish i could only keep all my emotions pure.
Good thoughts, wishes, hopes.
All of those would stick to me like glue.
Leaving me, a complete person.

I wish i could blend in with all the others,
And learn how to wholeheartedly accept affection.
If only i wasn’t so deprived from it,
When i was still young.

I wish i was able to concentrate,
Without my mind wandering off.
I feel like i'm floating through cool streams of water.
My thoughts, straying away like a pool noodle.

But, wishing isn’t getting, right?
I can wish and want all day,
And still end up with nothing.
In the end, my yearnings weigh equal to a feather.

Inescapable Vegetables

Patter! Patter! Squish!  
Oops! Oops! Swish!

Watch out! Oh no! Don't step there!

I wish i had enough personal expertise,
To be able to successfully walk around all these spilled peas.

Inexperienced Explorer

The statement made my parents gasp, "Oh! The horror!"
They cry, "Be an author!"
They beg, "Be a lawyer!"

Fortunate Person
Gray Jun 2018
My shirt is clean,
I feel as charming as a marine!

My shoes are shining,
I feel ever so redefining!

My hair is brushed
I'll never have to be rushed!

My teeth are healthy
This makes me happier than the most wealthy

Oh how I feel so blessed.
Trust me, I am not depressed!
One of my older ones I just recently found again.

Let Us Eat Lettuce!
Gray Jun 2018
Want to know what won’t upset us?
Well, it’s this amazing thing called a delicious lettuce.

It’s literally one of my morning routines
To feast upon this crunchy collard greens

To complete my lunch,
I simply just give it a good crunch.

It’s a promise that if you eat lettuce for a snack,
You will never ever have to look back.

Ms. Rosemary
Gray Jun 2018
Some people think Ms. Rosemary is a witch
Even her clothes were somewhat kitsch
  
But she has the most polite set of manners
So can you blame her and her high standards?

Ms. Rosemary also sure loves to dance
Causing all who see her to go into a trance

Maybe that's why people have an itch
That Ms. Rosemary is a witch!

Oranges: Good for the Soul.
Gray Jun 2018
You know what i like? Orange.
In fact, i have like four of them in storage.

If you don’t like this tasty fruit,
I will personally give you the boot!

I mean, what’s not to enjoy?
I feed them to all the people i employ.

I’ll surely become suspicious,
If you don’t find oranges simply delicious!

Happy Birthday to You
Gray Jun 2018
Guess what i got you for your birthday present?
It’s certainly something that isn’t unpleasant!

Go on, take a wild guess! I’m sure you’ll be very impressed!
(If not, you’re going to make me depressed.)

This present is worth more than a million bucks,
And i guarantee it doesn't *****.

You know what? I’m just going to tell you now.
Come on buddy, get ready to say wow.

Your present is something you’ll never be able to resist.
This year, i got you this.

Milton
Gray Jun 2018
I once had a little bird named Milton.
Let me tell you, he was certainly not a villain.
As a matter of fact that guy was sweeter than most kittens.
He used to play around with all of the local pigeons.
Man, i sure did love that little Milton.

Who Doesn’t Love Carrots?
Gray Jun 2018
Have you ever eaten a carrot?
If not, let me tell you that they’re the best things on this dang planet!

It’s very entertaining to run your fingers down their smooth ridges.
Indeed it’s more amazing than most religions!

I also do love their fine leaves of green.
They are literally better than England’s beloved queen.

If you eat a carrot for every single meal,
I assure you that you will finally feel real.

And if you decide to not,
You will most likely be shot.

Blueberries: You ready?
Gray Jun 2018
Y’all know what i like to marry?
A great big round blueberry!

Oh, the way it tastes on my slimy tongue is very sweet.
Soon all other food items will be obsolete.

There are many reasons why blueberries are so great.
One reason is that they’ll surely cause you to lose weight.

What’s another reason why they're so impressive?
They will definitely not cause a mental illness that will make you depressive.

Come on pal, there’s no rationality to dislike.
Go on now, just take a bite.

Panic Attack
Gray Jun 2018
An unusual noise unprecedentedly awakes me.
At a time where i never once willingly arised.
In the darkness of my room, i try to adjust my sleepy eyes.

Unfortunately, it’s no use.
And i am forced to turn on the blinding lamp light.
I groan in annoyance and wipe away the sleep from my face.

I conclude I might as well get up.
Perhaps to make myself something warm to drink.
The rest of my body doesn’t agree, which causes myself some unwanted exertion.

While I’m creeping along the cool stairway,
I get a feeling I’m being watched.
I shake the thought out of my head. I live alone. Don’t be foolish.

Eventually i make it into my kitchen,
Where the feeling of uncertainty still follows,
I blink a few times for reassurance, and begin my usual routine.

Even though the time is far too early,
I still am able to heat up the water.
While I open my cabinet, i once again feel like i'm being surveyed.

This time that strange feeling doesn’t fade away when i attempt to remove it.
Apprehension soon rushes through me as well.
My hands start to shake, which consequently makes me drop my favorite tea kettle.

I additionally crumble downward, and melt into a tense ball.
That sensation of being stalked just grows stronger.
I wish i wasn’t so subnormal.

Grape
Gray Jun 2018
I see a single grape.
I cannot help but admire that smooth round shape.

Oh gosh how i love that deep purple.
That color almost makes me almost practically nonverbal.

Now i am pulling it’s skin back slightly
Wow! Is it sad how much this excites me?

The inside juices are somehow even better than before
This shade of green is one i truly adore.

The single grape is split in two.
Don’t you like grapes as much as i do?

Destitute
Gray Jun 2018
There sits the hungry homeless man.
When he reaches inside his pocket he found little.
The man would certainly need more to be bountiful.

On the other side of the street sits the noble wealthy man,
That man hasn’t ever had a single care.
In fact, he surpasses being a millionaire.

Suddenly the poor man faints due to starvation.
The noble man looks away.
That poor man is gross, and bares a horrible disarray.

The public walks past him, and does nothing in his aid.
That homeless man is dying.
And of course the public is denying.

Hours later, another homeless woman runs towards him.
Her tears will soon be shed,
For that man is already dead.
I don't know about this one, but it's worth a shot eh?

The Snap
Gray Jun 2018
Don't stay up past your curfew.
Or the Snap will surely come to hurt you.

What is the Snap you may ask?
I dont know, its never been unmasked!

Some claim its an unholy entity,
But that hasn't ever been confirmed as its true identity.

Maybe the Snap is just simply a man who is very strict.
And decided to personally end the misbehaving teenager conflict?

Yet that wouldn't explain all the people killed,
Because surely a single man couldn't be that skilled.

Well what if I told you that the Snap was actually me?
I bet that’s something you didn’t foresee.

Anyways now, you shouldn’t have to worry.
As long as you get home in a hurry.

Strolling Along
Gray Jun 2018
I walked along side the empty sidewalk,
Alone as I’ve always been.
It didn’t bother me as it might have troubled others.
I was used to it time and time again.

The weather that day was cold and grim
Just like how I’ve been feeling prior.
Since everything seemed to blend,
I didn’t realize until the two of us collided.

You were so polite and quickly said, “Oh, I’m so sorry!”
Even though that it was clearly my fault.
I remember nodding timidly, and lowering my hand to help pick you up.
The second you grabbed it was the second my old life melted away.

The next day’s weather was worse,
But it no longer matched how i was feeling.
We walked, not hand in hand, but side by side.
We were both equally as shy and nervous.

How else should have we behaved?
The two of us had only met the day before.
Yet, even i must admit now, I felt like we could have been more.
Perhaps if i said something then we could have been something more.

Soon the sidewalk met the intersection.
Which meant that our paths were to come to an end.
Even though i traveled alone,
I wore a happy grin.
I'm still toying with poems that don't rhyme, and poems that are slightly longer, so oops!

Companion
Gray Jun 2018
Isn’t hard to comprehend,
How easy it is to lose a friend?
Over time they can just wash away,
It doesn’t matter how much they want you to stay.
Those kind of relationships can be very fragile,
Which means you must be always agile.
If you choose to keep your love for them unknown,
Then you might just find yourself all alone.

Dear X,
Gray Jun 2018
Hey! It’s me, the guy of your dreams!
Wow, what’s with you and all those awful screams?

Oh? You’re wondering how I got inside your head?
That’s a story for another day, so don’t continue to dread.

Okay so you’re really going to repeatedly ask?
Just trust me on this, it was no simple task.

All that matters is that I am finally here.
I hope you can tell that I’m truly trying to be sincere,

But it seems you’re not so fond of me.
I promise you, I’m the whole package, i guarantee!

I didn’t come here for nothing, so go on and hush.
It’s just.. Well.. I love you, and you’re my crush!
Someone wanted me to help them write a 'love' poem, and as you can see i am not so good with affection : )
Gray Jun 2018
Its fur is gray and matted down.
Its whiskers are a bold shade of dirt brown.
Its teeth are yellow and jagged in a crooked smile.
Its claws are razor sharp and vile.
Its eyes are not white, and give off a feeling that puts anyone in fear.
Its tail looks like a dried up worm that’s been poorly stitched to its rear.
Its nose looks like a chewed up and spat out jelly bean.
It smells as if spoiled milk and rotten potatoes collided together creating a gruesome scene.
Put these all together, and what do you get?
Something that you soon want to forget.

Dozing Off
Gray Jun 2018
I rather be at home in my own bed.

(When I’m asleep no one can hear me whispering.)

I like how everyone can be controlled inside my own head.

(When I’m asleep no one can hear me speaking.)

I can even pretend to view into my future by 'looking' ahead.

(When I’m asleep no one can hear me screaming.)

I really like how i can permanently make sure that i am never again misled.

(When I’m asleep no one can hear me weeping.)

I love being at home in my own bed.

Insomnia Blues
Gray Jun 2018
Since i am always tired,
My boss got mad, and i got fired!
I am now really in apartment debt,
Which caused both my parents to be extremely upset.
My feet ache,
But i have no time to take a break.
My brain is stressed,
But don’t i need to continue to try my best?
My relationships are practically nonexistent,
But isn’t wise to be a little resistant?
I must declare,
I wish i had more time to spare.

Unavailable Past Treasures

I look into the infinite abyss.
And ponder all the many things I've dismissed.
All grandmother wanted was a call on the phone.
Yet, i continued to have that simple call postpone.
All my old dog wanted was to play ball.
Instead i decided to further withdraw.
All he wanted was to have someone to talk.
But i chose to go on a far away walk.
Now it’s too late to grant their wishes,
For now they’re are just fading reminisces
