freedom needed

poetry

you can put make-up on it

you can drink it away

you can be bi, straight or gay

the vessel is the same

learning to live in the now

not circle the drain

i want to forget my pain

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.

quotes

“Maybe I was reaching for authenticity through a funhouse mirror. I didn’t know. I just didn’t want to be who I was. It turns out that’s not a specific enough request.”

— R. Eric Thomas, Here For It(AmazonBookshop)


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.

quotes

Sometimes I sit and wish I could freeze time right where I am. That way I’ll never lose all of the lovely things that are around me. But time keeps going and things keep getting lost. But I’m still living because something new and beautiful is going to come around eventually and that right there is something to stick around for.

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.
