Poetry Blogs (2019, selfishness)
drown in egoism.
how we forget – don’t.
for flicker- shift
this shell ashore,
revive the rolling
carcass and dissect,
drag that black heart
with the colour waves,
vanity that presses
with weight of our bodies-
we sunk like sinking
stripping skin for river,
wrapped with those oars
wallow, watch, wallow,...

You call me selfish for trying to take what is mine, and mine only, and do with it as I wish
Your claim and the belief behind it, is even more so
And, though you may not realize, all you are doing is prioritizing your pain over mine
You pacify your fear of heartache with my suffering
So tell me true, if you were in my shoes - if you overlooked your own feelings to e...

The one who pledged everyone with a refuge
is herself in exigent need.

talking over a static sea
through all we wearily witnessed this year
still we speak in riddles
the way men often can

weighted with expectation
You didn't turn to face me
kept your eyes fixed on the horizon

Black boots kicking stones across wet sand
choking out cong...

Never plan anything
that’s my motto
And if you can leave something till tomorrow
then leave it
Don’t think about loved ones
-Love no one
And consider yourself first and foremost
above everyone and everything
Don’t get involved
and don’t feel bad about leaving something
Any money you make -spend on yourself
and don’t start thinking about...
