I’m Okay With This

Got a knack for poetry Crafting heartfelt lines Borne of an outsider Watching the world go by Never done what people said, got into trouble World’s not kind to my kind, be in my bubble Silently preying on those with open hearts Check my blogs, see a lot of orange dots I didn’t make a […]

Taking Back My Life

White light Switch the day to night Black as whips Cross my skin I fight As breath is faint and light Cross my body go chains of steel I fail As hunger burns heavy and tight The American Dream is frail As the tears that take vision from my eyes From my family, from my […]

I Love You…Somehow Just Isn’t Enough

Basically I Like You But I’m Really Bad At Saying Why

when I like them I become the oddest creature you would ever witness elevated well above my natural habitat I feel strong suddenly and I am proud of that I spill too many words even my poems feel bare and I rave inwardly of accomplishments I’ll probably never reclaim or I become insanely aggressive not […]
