Exhale
James Hooper May 2019
These roads are black
Burning my souls
I’m wishing for direction
Perhaps nobody knows
They whisper
“Nobody Knows...”

Shhhhh

My stomach feels empty
THOUGH IT’S NOT
This pacing has me more
Lost.
Oh, how it’s turning in
KNOTS

Shhhhh

HELP ME

Shhhhh

I could help me
I’m stuck in overdrive
I should help me before I end
my life

Shhhhh

I’M STUCK IN OVERDRIVE

MY lack of purpose
Your picket fence and glory
MY broken brain
Should I be sorry

I AM SORRY

Shhhhh

Breath,
You are worthwhile
None of this is real
SURE
Just another **** pile

Farewell to the chaos
cheers to the tears

Shhhhhh

******* VOICES

Inhale - Exhale
Inhale - Exhaaaa
Inha - Ex————-

Psychosis
James Hooper May 2019
Head tingling
Numb
Expanding to great lengths
Rapid heart rate
Do I breath
I’m time-traveling  
How am I gaining this
Who am I
Bigger than all of this
WHY ME
Electric shock through spine
Seeing this body differently
I’ve discovered the secret of Life - Most would never know
Broken, woah
Out of body
These are not my arms
Who’s handsome body have I
How am I driving
I’m standing on the beach in
2014
Is it 2014  
HOW
I remember everything
****
Night driving
Experiencing vibrant colors
How is my body doing this
I’ve revisited my birth
I refuse to be
One
Name
Two
Labels
Three personalities
Fifty hours and I can’t sleep
Not through this
Madness
No longer am I
Broken
I’m free
Ocean breeze blowing
Windows are up
Jazzy sound of the birds
Slow down a little
Hype of the surfers
Lights off the dashboard
Colors of my skin
Sensations beyond
Comprehension
How am I too good at driving
Did I just pass me
Slow down a little  
****
****
****
Psychosis
Disconnected I say
NOT
Deeper connection
Small minds could never
New meds they say
OKAY
Goodnight
****
I can’t sleep
I know too much
This could change the world
Be Still
My Manic Friend
Driving home from California.

Beautiful Trauma
James Hooper May 2019
Minds connected
Souls intertwined
In a crowded room it was just you and I.

Spoken truths
Unspoken love
Above all is what you consist of

Beautiful trauma, tell me your name
I’m dazzled by your abilities

Oh tranquility
Am I going insane?

They’re the liabilities,
So save me
from the mundane

Eyes connected
Spirits combined
Our lives infected
by the world that we find

Sweet sweat of chaos
in the taste of your tears
Retain your innocence and
run with me for years

Beautiful trauma, tell me your name
I’m dazzled by your abilities

Oh tranquility
Am I going insane?

They’re the liabilities
So save me
from the ******’ mundane
To the beauty I met in a crowd.

— The End —
