Passion>Fear

I have to hold myself and those around me accountable. It is who I am as a person and it is my duty as a man. The sensitivity of the male ego will always be astounding. This is not me saying I am immune to it because that I am not. My pride has blocked…

Triggered

I would do this even if I was talking to myself into the infinite universe and it seemed vast darkness was all there would ever be. I got you by my side and thats beautiful. You bring light. Words are like shooting stars they help me wish for better things. There’s a certain peace that…

Binge Reading

She said… I don’t even know how to explain what you do to me She spoke how… Just because you saw me when I was fragile I don’t want you to think that I’m weak She talked about how… I have a lust for death because I fell in love with my own mortality She…

Destination Known

I don’t have an addictive personality I have an obsessive personality. If you’re like me after reading this; you will understand. If you are unlike me, that is okay. You will see an aspect of life through a different perspective. There is nothing in this world I need in a hostile way. I can quit…

Papa, Who Cares?

How the fuck you leave a black boy in the hands of America? Tough as diamonds but they treat us like everyday stones to be tossed from a glass house because we came from broken homes. Made the streets my home. Made this zoo into a jungle. Our stomachs would grumble. We heard gunshots at…

Thanos Bets

This is inspired by talks at the bar with Alanna. Hopes that Banks never has financial hardship and everyone I care about doesn’t have to be the lead singer in order to find Nirvana. This is inspired with hopes of being able to afford my mother going to therapy. Inspired by visions of you in…

A Fools Goodbye

And I hope I never play the fool again but there was so much about you to be foolish for. Lately closure is coming in every direction, I’m learning to deal with the compass telling me it’s time to move on. I wanted to be here with you but you are no where near me….

Oruga

Do you think life nurtures the caterpillar to become a butterfly or is it just their nature? Is it just by happenchance they got wings or could all of this be something more? I hope I live long enough to truly experience something more. I hope for a lot of things. The audacity of me…

Oz.

I was never the rose that grew in the concrete. Where I’m from being that fragile will get you killed. Whatever I am, I still have my thorns. Learning to let go of pain I gained from circumstances that wasn’t my fault. Learn to deal with regrets I keep trapped in my elemental vault. You…

Complicated Greetings

All I really wanted was you and the drugs. Cause the intimacy of your inner thighs felt like the best high I’m addicted to the way you said it was mine. Wise words I once heard was “Everything in moderation” So please only love me when I need it. I beg of you only ask…

Faded

It’s been too long since I been faded. Searching human history of my own timeline to figure out when I wasn’t jaded. Besides your lovely bones the only thoughts that run through my mind is when I’ll be able to say that “I made it”. How am I suppose to get that feeling if I’m…

Peanut Gallery

When someone ask you who you believe in I hope the first person that comes to mind is yourself. Selfishly I hope somewhere on the short list of other people is me. Because it’s natural to want people you believe in, to believe in you. Even if you fail to believe in me that doesn’t…
