Hmm...
I'm beginning to notice my bars... captivity was never really noticeable to me but now, I see them iron arms from floor to ceiling barred from access to the Gods... follow false men draped in cloths. This is life now... US or them... hate, destroy, buy, obey go against them die today or you're labelled out your head strapped and snuggly to a bed wrapped in bandage white room for days... while they scribble on some papers about your cooky fucked up ways. Or you're famous! Maybe TV overdosed or un...

Relapse
Unsurprised, You let reintroduced animosity sucker-punch you, wanting to like it, But the hurt didn’t hurt the same. Why? Why are you so angry? Why are you so sad? Your best friend is lip balm And the...

Lest We Forget
Babe, I lifted you out of the ashes... like the Phoenix (from the fire). Carried you, with my love, you... perched on my back, grabbing and tearing at the feathers (of my wings)... fucking up my halo... with all these useless things. Always trying to lay low. For fuck sakes... You done lost your mind... Treating me like your past time. Never gives... always takes. Completely oblivious to the fact that the only way to find another me is to pick me from the heavens yourself, or send a fax to the d...

Who’s the one who says that minds are depraved? Sure, there are those who commit wrongdoing. But that is off from what the brain has craved. Good is what most folks begin pursuing. Through many defeat...

Sweetie
I wish 🎶I could talk to you, and explain things... I f*cking wish we never stopped talking because of some half-wit slag, pretending to be your friend. I told you I never liked them... Some dumb-bitc...
Three Things to Live For
I've lived my life in search of three things: One: The gentle kiss of a caring lover. The electricity of her lips, the tenderness of her smile as we share a moment of silence for the lovers we've left...

Writer
You write, putting down the pretty, pretty words. Elongating your vocabulary with a condescending tone. You find yourself magnificent and your readers luckier than lucky to absorb them. You spew empty...

To Be Honest...
Once upon a time... You used to be the Taurus to my vehicle to the stars. My endless youth...encapsulated in those big dreamy beautiful pools of chocolate eyes, until... Ah well, you inured that contract the moment you put me to the back of the bus. You thought I became your second class citizen... that's where you were mistaken, dear boy. And then, a Ginger-beard man came one day and scooped me off my wobbling feet. Sowed pieces of my broken heart back together with his broken guitar strings an...

I'm Sorry
I thought of you today, and it was the first time you have walked through my mind in years. Why? I'd put you in a dusty box in my mental attic, to heal and be free. Did I dust off the box? Or did I le...
