sometimes I feel so frustrated
That I can't find the words for my feelings
That I feel like I'm such a fraud
And I contradict myself
and try to rewrite everything with rhyme
or look for your validation, your approval of my soul
my stanzas and my gibberish: the wannabe Allen Ginsberg-like howl sounds more like a pathetic whimper
a lack of vocabulary enmeshed in gross erroneous ...

You are enough.
are costs of the
through it all.
But, then again,
what do I know.

~I'm the thin layer of ice that forms on paved surfaces
A slippery slope that can lead to ones demise if ignored
But you ignore me anyway, because I'm seemingly harmless
I don't think the camouflage I wear every waking day helps
It's a proactive measure I guess
You see right through me
Like I'm made of glass
I'm fragile, but you throw the stones anyway
Don't you know shards are deadly?~

Not thinking is fun
It makes me a bum
I like to be a bum
A bum having fun
Ergh, oooh, errr, umhrm
I'm not mad
Because I don't care
The world spins
Money is spent
The world has a dent
I do not care
You're only in trouble if you think you are
You're only a failure if you think you are
I'm gonna think I'm in the clouds

Sadness follows the ends of my hands,
Gravel broken sideways.
Finish the beginning to confirm the edges,
Shadows digging deeper.
The bridge built for the followers,
Above that brittle and cold creek.
Water fills holes to drown the children,
Your gasps unending,
A quiet end on the side of relief and tranquility.
Following the bitter ...

In the great winter night,
Opened skies scream to the willowed avalanches,
Where the people die mourning their loved ones.
Leaves didn’t fall that afternoon in december,
Nor did the bodies strung up on the desert floor,
Sand seeps into wounds and makes the blind cry for their mothers,
Fashioned in a new way to see the world go round,
I opened fantasy and mirror alike...

So I feel like I've uncovered my own rendition of a super hero power
When I meet a man I can estimate his dick size within an hour
So this may seem a little seedy, a bit sleezy, but when a man overcompensates with money why does he think it will impress me
One guy on a night out handed me his credit card and told me to drink as much as I dare at his expense
I politely declined ...

I'm tired of being second best
I'm tired of being the one the world rejects
The husband wanted more so he went with the bridesmaid
& even back in primary I never got picked for the school play
Second best is a journey of progression
Always so close to the prize but then comes life's hard lessons
It seems no matter how much you want it and no matter how hard you try

Subtle and nearly invisible at first,
slowly crawling over my skin,
forming fractols of scars.
entrapping me inside my own body,
crushed under the broken glass
penetrating through every inch of exposed skin,
deepening with every thought unsaid,
every night of comfort you missed,
every casual remark you passed.
My silent screams ring in my ears

I used to think writing was an escape,
But i now realize that it has never been anything more than a device to feed into every word that I use to bring the emotional drain that is my heart and mind to a story between the paper and ink.
It seems that the lights flickering above me have more meaning,
At the age of seven, I was told the truth as to where my father was and why i never hear...

I’m gonna be so pretty for you,
As one layer falls off and tumbles to the ground -
Hugging your feet
Like a lash of waves.
I’m gonna be so pretty for you,
Let me be pretty for you,
I will be the prettiest I’ve ever been,
As one layer of flesh peels off, along with her clothes.
One layer of soft lips melts from her features -
Layers and layers till...
