If They're Good So Are You

28.09.21

It gets better, 

a friend once said

You’re not a bad person 

Shouldn’t wish you were dead 

 

Everyone is their own worst critic, 

He said to me 

And when he needs an ear, 

I listen intently 

 

We swap stories, 

One back and one forth 

Lighten the load, 

Keep each other on course

 

When friends are down 

I feel it too

When people are sa...

Unlovable

24.09.20 

She's a lot 
Too much 
For her self 
Or anybody else 

Keep giving 
And pouring 
Into a never ending void 

Keep loving 
The unlovable 
And I'll tear you apart too 

You sampled the poisen 
And it tasted so sweet 
Just enough to make you sick 

Stay with me 
If you want 
I won't beg

My Office Chair

There is some magic in my office chair

It gives me rides here and there

Liberating me from the daily stress

It best knows how to take care.

 

Although it looks like dilapidated

Its current shape is much anticipated

Yet it offers the best of comfort,

And all my worries are emancipated.

 

This chair has been a hot seat in the past

This chair can narrate the tales ver...

In The Foyer Of Hotel Lonely

Being lonely is so wearing

Eyes averted fingers drum

Lasering of furtive glances

Pain of self-conscious hum

 

Repressed passion lashes

Barricades vast but hidden

Terror of getting through

Fears that come unbidden

 

Desire versus inhibition

Self-image sorely racked

By corroded self-esteem

Egos that failure hacked

 

Behaviours only reinforce

Self-loath...

Smiles

Upon first glance,

I see a Hollywood smile,

an air of intrigue greets passers by. 

But, when I look into her eyes, 

I see something much different 

than her pursed lips convey. 

Reservation, disappointment,

distrust, trauma, fear...

all pushed down, covered 

with happy highlights

for the world to see. 

Perhaps, it’s simply a reflection

of my insecurities,

but...

my brain was a savage

and im sorry i let so many undeserving hands ravage your fragile parts

i didnt think you were worth enough, so thats why i continued to pick and prod, my judgement was tough

with every burise, cut, and scar youre beautiful thin or large

Love Lessons

He loves her but, 
she loves him,
but he loves the mirror 
like his lost love loves selfies.

Adoration, pointing every direction, 
like weather vanes in a hurricane.

Each unware their 
love affair 
is bound to end. 

Love lessons often repeat 
until we understand that 
real love begins within, 
then overflows to others, 

making the circle of love 
complete.

Self-Defined

Never let Haters Define you by the box they create for you! They persecute you because they FEAR you and your Greatness!


She crawls on self-defeat

with her sore bare feet.

Jagged cracks play on tiles;

i deem them infantile.

 

Reflections of old wake

as memories overtake

the waterfall of tears

which draws oh so near.

 

Waves of empty promises

A Noun in White Open Space

A noun all alone in the white open space is at risk,

if it doesn't know its own definition or purpose.

Without knowing its identity, this noun may search for a verb.

Once it finds this verb, it may begin to become active.

After it is active, it may come to dwell upon passive.

Should this be the case, it may call itself just a subordinate clause.

Still without the sense of cause, ...

Spring Tanka

A winter bite that

mocks the spring, pincers its cocoon.

A life supported?

Cease one's internal decay,

Even ice melts. Love's fluidity.
