I shall not be apologetic For you've objectified me Before you got to know me With piercing eyes Undressing my flaws You've observing my skin And the nakedness in which My thighs and breast Move makin...

Hey... I Promise
I will never let them: be it another woman... or a man, take advantage of you. Use your heart, soul and body to abuse you. Hey... I promise. I will Never believe another lie, or, "I love you"... I will always be there, for you... I will ALWAYS love you. I promise... I will be the one to dry your eyes, I will be "the one" to muffle your screams, hold you... and hear your cries. I promise... I will be the one to heal you. And hold your hand too... I will be the one who understands, you. No one els...

This Is Me
Again. I’ve let you win. Coming into my heart please don’t break it again. Every child needs their mom but where was mine? Lost to morphine or I guess another fucking line. I wish I knew what made you...

I Get It
I get it. There's nothing I can really do, or say, to explain it. What I feel inside... these feelings I constantly hide... with fire within me. A product of my reaction to the environment that destroys me. The demon that attacks my mind. Consumes, me... some call it Bipolar, some call it Depression, others' call it, "illness." I call the DSM, fuckery and their opinion, a failure to understand what I am. A being... sensitive, unique, beautiful, nothing is fucking wrong with me! What you say is n...

“Ode To: My Mirror” To the object that sees all of me Every lump and bump Scars, scratches, and bruises Your pristine appearance astounds me Crystal clear Sharp edges protrude out But your surface, as...

B.O.M.B.S
Goddamn, I’m a train wreck, car crash, pile up, Percocet, ripped jeans, wine stains, goodbye I forget the last time I spoke to you without regret and trepidation digging holes through my gut, tongue, ...
The Monsters That Draw Near
The beasts walk down the path Seemingly unwavered, unopposed All those who attempt to stand in their path crumble to the ground But hark! Hear the heroes come forth They stand their ground, leaving th...
The Campground
The dying embers of originality Soon to be snuffed by the waters of rehashed content The new fire set ablaze by the short-lived sparks of passion The campground of creation lively with vessels of crea...

The Dark Silence
As she lay in the dark silence, Her thoughts run wild. They go back to the times, as a child, When she would run free When she would scream, "You can't catch me!" As she ran away giggling Her little f...

Today I listened to a song that gripped me harder than the hands that were wrapped around my neck by the man who said he loved me the night before.“I gave it all and you gave me shit” Today I listened...

What Makes You?

Polluted
Lies rise like tides, and the water fills the house. rushing to suffocate, the stairs lead to me. an oil paint sky above, but the moon just watches us. take a hit from your cigarette, you laugh and th...

This Guy... "B"
I've known this dude, like... two decades. Geez! Been my n*gga since, way back when... we first started, smoking trees. Like, when, Tupac and Biggie were friends. (before they had beef) Met him when I was nine, or ten... a skinny, shit-head of a kid back then. Who didn't even swear, or do shit, like be rebellious, because I was too much of a geek, a legit, goodie-two-shoes to consider it, so... I'm like... at my best friend, D's house, right? 'Cause their mom's away and everybody's lit. 'Cause, ...
