Edges

The edges of my being
Are a funny shape
Like the boundaries
Between countries
That are not straight
Gun-man patrolling
Barbed-wire fences
Affecting the limits
Of my internal extremes

Zealous hungers
Push harder
Need more
Fucked logic
Give secretly
Love openly
Fear less
Stray polymath
Thinking different

It might’ve been

We might’ve been
Something big
I might’ve been
What you needed
You might’ve been
Someone that helped

We should have
Both tried harder
I should have
Understood my flaws
You should have
Had more patience

Now I know
The foundations
Of my choices,
The wiring
Behind the box,
And I only wish
I first met you
today

Two kinds

Two kinds of people,
To take photos or not.
Does your brain work?
Or do you need to take a pic?
Quick snap to remember
The memory that your
Mind can’t be bothered
To hold dearly.

You won’t forgot your birthday,
Yet the date of this occasion,
Will be lost property,
An orphaned moment,
Unless you take that snap,
With your fake beaming smile,
Just stop taking pics
For at least a little while.

Takes two to argue

Non-reaction makes me the listener
In my calm, her rage bubbles over

I ignore the sounds of nonsense
Only hearing the sound of silence

Her energy is being expelled
Mine is being maintained

Her BPM and blood pressure rises
I caused this beautiful fury

The lioness wants to hunt me down
Because I left the toilet seat up

Guitar strings

Using this heart as a guitar
She jumps from the mind
To break a few strings
With her raw aggression
The crazy passion
That no one else has

Then she laughs
Wholeheartedly
With her eyes
At newly broken strings
And then disappears
Back to the past, our history

Leaving me without a sound,
Leaving me missing,
Something that was there.

Devil-eloped world

The devil rules today,
Secretly a union formed,
He’s the man of this house,
That’s why it’s not in order.

The good are too few,
The devil’s money rules all,
New money, old money,
Dirty money that’s been cleaned.

The good need to be bad
Just to survive in this mess,
The sick needs to get better,
To help our fight against the devil.

Fair weather writers

Keep your constant joy
To yourself.
Real life
ain’t in your sentences.
Only ups, no downs.
What kind of fake existence
Lead you to pick up a pen?

There’s beauty in everything,
Heartbreak, death, pain.
Even bankruptcy
Is the start of a beginning.
Your broken phone
Means you’ll get a new one.

Your meanings are plastic
I’m way past caring for it,
Rather wash my short hair
Than read your chirpy crap.
What bubble do you exist in?
Maybe go back there and burst.
