CAPTAIN-SAVE-A-HOE (Poem)

12/7/2018

CAPTAIN SAVE-A-HOE I feel trapped, but i don’t wanna get away. I want to stay here and help you from my cage, but I’ve gotta level with you. Doing this will just cause my mental to bruise, please stays and I love yous... Damn you know what those do... But I’m in this cage with wings and i wonder why, a bird with wings should be allowed to fly Right? Right. Passionless sex and long sleepless nights. Up at dawns bright for long distance drives. Your purgatory is my 405. And...

The Disease (Poem)

12/7/2018

The Disease Sometimes it's a bad time, Sometimes it's a worse time. The blackening of night tastes of orange rinds and bitters. The cold wind sends shivers up my spine. Mindfully thinking about the world I'll leave behind. It was the house that my father built filled with, Spiritual energy to ward off all or any enemies. But the disease infected and reflected a Waning light not bright enough for the little ones to have sight. One preferred the light and the other the dark. Hark...

30 Minutes 30 minutes has passed and a multitude of waves at my feet crash Fearlessly. It’s my hope to be one day like it. A powerful force to behold. Not needing to be told where to go and how to act. 30 minutes has passed. The black holes in the sky are not seen But my joy and happiness always are. The lights of the city and the distance in between keep them hidden. And maybe the lights keep my darkness hidden as well. The darkness darker than my skin. The darkness buried...

Liberation (Poem)

11/5/2018
More
Liberation Liberation, in the truest sense of the word. A freeing fluttering feeling like the first flight of a bird. It's absurd that for a time I've been living so constrained, Confined to the confines of my very own brain. I was blind to see the tethers chaining me to a singular fixed point in time. Spinning and spinning and spinning my gears, living my life in a circle instead of a line. It's a clarity. Something that is often a rarity in this time and space of being...
