To my body, I am sorry.

Trying to catch my breath but there’s stones at the bottom of these lungs. I am heavy, stagnant, yet always on the run. Most days feel like an endless inferno, I am too mesmerized by the colors to realize that I am burning. My bones now brittle, crumbling like stale bread each time I try…

How Did I Become So Jaded, When I’ve never been in love?

This recumbent state Of living is not how I wish it to be But it’s the little things That torture and pick At me endlessly Like the way the sun Had glistened off Your eyelashes, Liquefying my walls, I quickly try to board myself back up Hoping you didn’t notice. Your eyes, I fear they…

Nice Guy Syndrome

Be honest with yourself Just this once. You left me outside your door again, Made me lose my breath, Summer rain stayed in These hazy eyes for months. You toss my words to the floor, Just like my clothes on that winter night. Those starlit eyes never once looked into mine, That girl from before…

You look at me with such worry I almost believe you care, but its alright. I've been here many times, You don't have to reach for my hand in the darkness, I know how to create my own stars That lead me back to solid ground. Being my own savior Can be a bore, But…

Ripples in my head

I can feel the sanity Slipping through my Hands again. Trying to grasp it, Is like trying to catch Sunlight, It flows straight through These bony fingers, Hitting the ground. The waves Crash over me, The chains Of my Existence begin to Drag me down
