Letter to 18 Year Old Me

The beauty of life is the journey that leads you to different places, that allow you to search yourself and meet yourself deeply… May you never get lost seeking something you already possess in yourself.

– Mirror Conversation 

   You’re the real meaning of staying but leaving. A cross between a hurricane and tremor infused in water. But you’re not a disaster, And you don’t cause one, But somehow those around your feel the aftermath of your presence, And It’s not as pretty as you look. You wonder why people who love you,Continue reading “– Mirror Conversation “

A Mile; In Suicidal Shoes

you’re not a bad person for the way you kill your sadness… Each pill dissolving on your tongue, the way you wished your pain would. But pain is not like people, you can’t just talk it away, And people aren’t simple, you cannot force them to stay. 99 pills at once, Like problems shoved down yourContinue reading “A Mile; In Suicidal Shoes”

A tangled Web an older man weaves

His eyes are piercing, so focused. He doesn’t blink. He looks into the depths of your soul as if he knows every little secret. It’s almost as though he sees right through you.

Validation

I see girls switching on their cameras, stripping off their morals, in search for validation; in the form of 1000 likes. I’ve seen and heard them say and do things, in spite of what they promised, their 8 year old self. In the wee hours of the morning, you can see teardrops seep from underneathContinue reading “Validation”

Leaving this in the past…

I remember when you meant nothing to me. We would talk for hours, but I was barely aware of your existence. I will never forget how passion filled kisses changed all that. You shifted a lot of things inside of me, but my tide remained still. The more I repressed on the surface, the more youContinue reading “Leaving this in the past…”

Crutch

I loved you, when you were most broken. Prayed every night, that you would be healed as sunrise awakens, But every day, you would awaken, With more and more breathes taken. I see how pain radiates through your smile. Knowing that your feet won’t walk a mile, without a crutch. Eyes oblivious, to what wasContinue reading “Crutch”

Dream

She dreamt me into existence… I was no threat, I mean, He was just my friend, Nothing about it was pretend. From borderline brother, To undercover lover, Like harmless breeze turned thunder. Like Alice,  I’m in Wonder… I’m lost, I’m confused, My feelings; New Who knew? Me and you?!? From Souled Out tunes to oldContinue reading “Dream”

No Good Comes From Loving A Person Who Doesn’t Love You Back…

He has a constellation of freckles on his face and you’re busying trying to figure out how your name comes into it. The words he utters puts you out of place, yet you still try to fit yourself in all the spaces he has created. In the mist of everything. You try teach him howContinue reading “No Good Comes From Loving A Person Who Doesn’t Love You Back…”

Cock Tease

When I Became A Man – Caleb Jones

When I became a manI put away childish things But before I became a man I didn’t always fit the shoes of a KingI was a child trying to find his way The toys I played with kept my eyes occupied And left my eyes in a lustful boyish frenzyMy playmates had long legs, shortContinue reading “When I Became A Man – Caleb Jones”
