You want a writing tip?


Get cheated on

Fall for somebody who can’t love you back

Have a breakdown/ a depression

In an abundancy of lack


Set sail upon a voyage

On a prison ship of demons

Your hands chained up in rhymes

While they keelhaul all your reasons


Drown yourself in sorrow

While you’re swimming for the light

Evaporate the line that divides

Your day and night

Behind the Thoughts

I’m smoke on a lung, a line never written

A talk without words, an act of contrition

A scarecrow, a jester, a hullabaloo

Not the thing that you asked for

But the one that will do


The most serious nonsense that never transpired

An energy spike in the night when you’re tired

I’m wired, I’m bricks, I’m a skylight on acid

I’m electro shock therapy

Until you lay placid
