Caressing Keys

My head begins to spin
I squeeze my eyes shut
So many unfinished stories
The year has been rough

Write a poem, maybe two
That will hold them over
It’s not enough, I’m overdo
Time to pull back the covers

My palms rest on the keys
As my blood begins to pump
My fingers twitch awake
For so long they’ve been numb

Release.

Imagined Dragons

Just a lustful admirer
He asked if I was friend or foe
I was neither
He was the field to my scarecrow

I watched over to protect
When others neglected
And the black birds of the world
Swooped in at his neck

He disappeared
The day after I fell in love
And my life was enriched
With things unheard of

I cried for a minute
But it was all the time I had
To mourn over the forbidden
For only seconds I remained sad

Screaming didn’t help
And these tears don’t mean a thing
Taming this dragon will be impossible
He just wont listen when I sing

Missing Pieces

When you call
I come running
I know you’re out there
Can you hear me?
The flashbacks keep coming
Can you see me?
Staring from across the world
Could you take me?
Away from all this chaos
Maybe break me
Do everything you wished for
When you get lonely
Giving the attention you dream of
Do you honey?
Want it all laid out in the open
We could both
Fix the hearts that we’ve had broken

Lemons for Lemonade

We Humans

We do the craziest things

Ignore someone

Attempting to retrain the brain

To try and get rid of

What drives us insane

Controlling road rage

Just by switching the lanes

Stupid humans

Life just isn’t that easy

It’s hurtful, it’s messy

It’s so fucking sleazy

And you have to deal with it

Love in it

Sleep in it

And there are no refunds

You’ll just have to keep it.

Rupture

The hunger strikes
When you least expect
It grabs you in ways
That you don’t forget
It reminds you of the things
You cannot have
It reminds you of a time
That left you sad
But you feed off of it
As much as you can
Squeeze your eyes shut
And pretend there’s this man
Giving you the pleasure
That you’ve never had
And you reach for the high
Because you need it bad
You float in the clouds
As your fingers roam
But as you glide down the hill
You find yourself alone

Mundane

Today I don’t feel sexy

I wouldn’t turn you on

I opted out of make up

My hair has grown too long

~

With baggy jeans

And a pony tail

My eyes sink in

I don’t look well

~

I need new clothes

That hug my curves

Something shiny

Will calm my nerves

~

This migraine threatens

To split my skull

This anxiety threatens

To steal my soul

~

I need you to flirt

So that I can flirt back

So turned on

You fall off track

~

Today I don’t feel sexy.

Unpolished

My muse has become blurred
As I try to regain what’s left
My body remains uncured
In my search to find what’s next

A shot of fireball to help forget
Reminds me that I’m an addict

Of a drug so dangerous
I’m losing sleep
Night after night
I’m in too deep
I resort to counting blessings
When I’m done with sheep

Classical music
Something smooth
Something without a beat
My heart is doing enough
To put a drum line at ease

I can’t get my shit together
I can’t find my peace
I’m lost without a label
I can’t find me
