Resting in peace

Last night I dreamt that I had died,
I laid in the grass and I closed my eyes.
The clouds hung over me,
A sad grey hug,
Then rain kissed my nose
As the wind stole my lungs.

Black hole

What if I were to tell you that
My heart is just a black hole
That I never meant to suck you in,
Or for you to get aimlessly lost
Within its gravitational force?
I never meant for you to fall in
Or to absorb all your light.
I never meant to trap you here,
Inside the point of no return.

My words drip in red

Everything I do is fueled with passion.
As I write these very words
Passion is pumping its way through my veins,
Spilling out onto the bed,
Soaking its way into the sheets,
Staining them with its red.
Bringing to life
Love,
Hate,
Desire,
Strength,
More passion.

Lit

Bic flick with every toke,
Creeping up the glass,
Empty spaces fill with smoke.
I try to forget what fills my head,
All these thoughts, better off dead.
I’m sick of the way these ashes make puns,
Tired of the ways words get caught in my lungs.
All my dreams burn out so fast,
Another year gone, 4 quarters won’t last.
I’ve been running so fast for so long,
I just want to sit here, relax,
Light the…
Hey, don’t get me wrong,
I’m not giving up, I just need to chill out,
Quiet these thoughts, take a hit,
A timeout.

Pint-sized power

I write secret songs
Lyrics longing to be learned.
I sing in a voice of silence,
Only wanting to be heard.
What is it about being seen
That makes me want to run
and hide?
I feel tiny trapped within
This mouse of an appearance,
With a whale sized heart inside.
