If I Ever Feel Better

If I ever feel better—
That is walking without jumping
I will clean the office for three weeks—no complaints

If I ever feel better
Meaning I cross again
I will buy you a shake

If I ever feel better
As in not feeling sick while looking at a duffel bag
I will pack you something nice

If I ever feel better
Maybe my parents won’t hear me scream from the other side of the City of Chicago

If I ever feel better
IF I ever feel better

Musings

After the storm the poets fade

Complete silence
In the air of wanting the poets whisper
Musings in agony
Take whatever’s left

And bury it deep inside

For the next time
But fret not

Love with you do
Because words
Drive
And you’re along for the
Ride

Angels
Fallen

Losing their wings

Sky losing color
Grey
Gloom

Sun
Waiting for a return

And yet
we smile?

 

Silent
You fancy me mad
Because I find
Words

Too precious to waste on small talk

Trapped in my mind
Words

Live to be written

They breathe
Walk around

Forming mountains
Commanding armies

Still you fancy me mad

Smoke

Inhale

Exhale

Breathe in

Breathe out

Repeat

Pounding smoke

Into my lungs

As if it’ll be the last thing

I do

And it burns
I love it
Repeat

Scented sweetly

Tastes of Mango

Something I’m not too sure
And It’s bitter

I love it

Repeat

It hurts

It burns

It leaves me light
I love it
And it love me

Caged

A bird in a cage
Always wanting to

Fly
Can you keep it there
Without it biting off your

Hand

One day
you’ll blink
And the bird will soar
Away

Something

Jump into something

Blue

Something to

Change and some extraordinary

Happy

~.%

LOVE

Living life

Only because you

Value

Everyone

PICK ME PICK ME

Was it by dreaming or

Writing

That I could find out what I

Thought

Nightmares or strokes of a pen

Fairy dust or ink

Screams or words

Not find of either

Does it matter

They both sired

Me
