my limbs do not feel like lead weights today
but like thin slivers of paper that are trapped
under a paper weight,
under several paper weights,
as i try to breathe and eat and move and sleep.
and yet ...
I saw a ladybird, Scuttling across a metal fence, As its home is ripped from the soil, Birds fly, as builders cry out “be careful”
The police stay on guard, Whilst protestors contemplate how “thirty o...
I’m proud of you.
We’re so proud of you.
Don’t forget I’m still proud of you.
Of my ability to pass for normal,
The way I now fit as a cog in the machine.
For getting up every morning.
Having a full-t...
How do I say my depression is unbearable when I'm stuck in this place?
How do I say it without hurting the people who've tried so hard to make things okay, who've been there for me almost every single...
A powerful engine on board
Raging nonstop in the night
Flying by like an angered soul
Howling throughout the night
The driver listening to music
Fuel for the soul
Wishing he could go home
Still he mig...
I find myself in a trance;
standing and staring, waiting for something radical to happen, nothing ever does.
The world around me spins on, quickly might I add.

Who has a God complex
Simply because he brings your bills to you
And drops them in a little box.
You are the hellfire that burns in my heart, blazing and eternal, I thought I knew desire, but the meaning changed when you came.
When I felt the softness of your skin and kissed your lips, Tasted the...
Not like you
I can't see
In my own space
I chase bliss
Whenever you rouse
My glow blows out
I'm dead inside you
Trapped in your web...
We are homesick and we
are already home. Soul searching is unnecessary
when you let yourself realize
you still have one. You are a revolution,
However noiseless and stilled,
You are a revolution. Sent...
My mama always said she brought me home during a hurricane and even though those nine months were a pain that I was still the greatest thing. My mama has a heart so big you can see it state wide, some...

From the moment the sounds get plugged in
From the thumping of the bass drum
To the riffs of the guitars
To the treble in the bass chords
To the sweet siren of his vocals
I feel him all around me.
They tell us, there is infinite supply of money,
That billions don't reside in the treasury,
That there "isn't a magic money tree"
They wrap us in a comfortable blanket of lies,
Telling us "everything...
What kind of animal is a cow?
It’s not an elephant or a moose, Though they finagle the word somehow.
The elk and the walrus also use
This three-letter sound that starts with cee,
From all the utteranc...
... ... ... "I'm fucked up!" "Oh really! How so?"
Because I know this
I don't deny this
I accept this
I live with this
As I am deceptively delicious
It's a long-brewed dysfunctional-ness
but a functio...
