drained

poetry

so close to my dreams

can’t get close enough it seems

circling the pipes

nights I stay up

lonely, but don’t give a fuck

please inspire me

don’t know who I’m talking to

just hoped the message come through

I’m drained

need some relief.

don’t forget my name

poetry

this poetry thang

gift from God

rough spots abound

my mind sees a clown

who would try this?

if the shoe fits

and the inspiration hits

go for it

don’t worry if no one reads it

likes or comments

maybe they’ll remember

your name.

meet the strong

poetry

everyday we get up

rise to the occasion

sometimes it’s amazing

until it’s not.

we try our best

put on our super-hero chest

fake it till you make it

the chain is stronger than you think

i realize everyday it’s how you think

thoughts become things

it’s time to think great thoughts

try it, it’s you.

vanish

poetry

lost another friend to the virus

confronted with mortality

makes me feel

too much

masculinity makes me want to hold it in

crying under my skin

go away virus

you’re taking so much away

the universe has picked me to stay

I wish I can take your pain away

make it vanish.
