I remember when my lungs were clean,
my brain understood how
to properly control my voice, my mouth
didn’t bumble and stumble over bunny-slope words,
I knew what having a friend meant.
My joints were ...
I never asked for you to hurt me. I never asked for you to throw my name around like trash so that everyone knew that I was vulnerable to your words.
I never asked for you to seek me out in a sea of p...
"I don't want to be alone, mom." That's what you should say. It's what you could say. It's what you would say if your mouth formed the syllables. If your tongue felt your mind and its thoughts how it ...
I’m looking for things I’ve never seen.
Basketball goals stand far, far away
from the Buick, and backyard-mountains
seem much more inconvenient
than what I initially thought.
Twice, I get that roller-...
As the time dwells down my heart beats faster. My breath becomes shallow and my nerves skyrocket. Questions fill my thoughts. Will today be the day? The day I no longer have to change to please you. T...
You bought my friendship with material items.
You filled my home with clutter.
Your gestures were nice at first.
Then I saw you had no heart.
You were using these items to tempt and control me.
I hate, oh I hate
making things such as this.
Where the goal is to put myself in a box.
Under some artistic lenses,
I must then pretend that the image itself
doesn’t make me sick.
I’ll say it ...
He still doesn't know I love him..
he doesn't know I still think about the day we met
he doesn't know i made a promise to myself
never to love him like i did before. well it's safe to say i broke my p...
What do you feel when you touch her hands?
nothing I answered, physically I have never felt them,
Because when I touch her I don’t feel her hands,
I feel her beyond her thoughts, I feel her essence, h...
Dear black rap artist's of the game yes you the ones who sold your souls to inherit the fortune and fame
You the ones whose lyrics are so toxic that it injects poison into my people's brain as you con...
It’s Friday night,
It’s Friday night,
My mate’s convinced me to go out for a pint,
The beer is piss and the music’s shite,
Headlights from a cab point at me from outside,
I’m blinded by the light.
hi, I’m a whore
but no, sex will never boost my self esteem
as I constantly slope deeper into depression
just because you think its my profession
to have a boy in my face having to look at his express...
You say you're a fighter,
Never to back down.
You say you're the alpha male,
Standing above all.
You say you're Superman,
Fearless and indestructible. Well you should know,
I'm a fighter too
18 years later,
you try again.
You come back in my life,
Trying to make amends.
With one simple sweep,
I let you in.
Though I know in my heart,
That You’ll leave again.
You gave me life,
But you leave...
is what I call my poetry.
Because it is mountain fold,
hidden in paper.
In every dotted i and crossed t
there is a story,
many of which are yet to be discovered.
I pray I am given ...
No, you cannot touch my hair,
No, you cannot stare,
I am not an animal in a zoo, But I’m often mistaken as one by you
Mistaken as that loud, sassy, nappy haired black girl over there,
Be quiet, straig...
A dance of pink flamingo on a rope.
Daw solving a math problem,
Rabbit reading metaphysical books,
Mouse boiling exquisite dishes,
Butterfly painting on canvas,
Giraffe walking the catwa...
Consciousness and logic swim through the endless void,
disconnected through disjointed synapses and chemical imbalances.
The record plays, but the song skips a few notes.
I want to be a rock singer...
