Untitled 4.

feeling lost in this world,

no one can understand,

how it is to be me,

having expectations to meet,

that might never be accomplished,

living a better than nothing life,

waiting for the day I can leave everything behind,

and set out on a journey to find myself,

to find what it’s like to be happy and free,

to have no restrictions,

to have no boundaries,

maybe when that day comes,

I won’t be so lost anymore.

Waiting for this life to end,

so I can be happier,

waiting for this life to end,

so I can be free,

waiting for this life to end,

seems like a job of its own,

been waiting for what seems like forever,

for my life to be over with,

I know that my time isn’t coming soon,

I’m still here for a reason,

I still have something to prove,

I just wish things would hurry up,

getting tired of being here,

the red room is waiting for me,

I am ready to depart from here,

I have overstayed my welcome.

False Love.

July 27, 2011 § Leave a comment

Things aren’t like they used to be,
Life is different for you and me,
Our love died when we moved on,
You stole my heart, it was just a con.

Maybe that’s why we’re apart,
True love was never in your heart,
I believed all your honest lies,
And now it’s you that I demise.

You were my mother, you still are my mother,
the state in which you are in,
does not change the title of you,
your death opened my young eyes,
it made me realize the truth around me,
people can be here one day,
and gone the next.
I can say that my love for you has deepened,
I now appreciate the little things in life,
seeing as how they can be taken from us so quickly,
memories still flash over my eyes at times,
from when you were alive and smiling and happy,
I still remember that look in your eyes,
the one you had when you were proud of me.
I miss that look, I miss everything about you,
tears still build up in my eyes,
when the thought of you swims across my mind,
seeing as how you are gone from this Earth forever,
makes me cherish every moment I still have here,
when it is my time to go, I will go proudly,
because I would know that I would be coming home to you.

she’s a five foot nine bullet,
ripping through the eyes of underpaid men,
with her cinnamon skin shining from the lights,
and her long, golden hair swinging wildly,
with every twist and turn her body makes.
she’s lost in a world that has consumed her,
her ravishing looks were her ticket in,
every night she performs, she dies a little inside,
the hungry looks on the faces of her audience,
makes her feel superior and inferior simultaneously.
she was told that her looks would take her far,
further than the group home she lived in,
so far she would never want to look back,
but now that’s she’s made it out,
she wants to regress.

I’m in love with the thought of you,
You keep my mind company,
You leave me with pleasant dreams,
I think of you day and night,
Your presence has made a room in my head,
No matter how hard I try,
I cannot escape the thought of you.

I have a confession,
after I tell you this,
“will you still be my friend?”
is my question,
I wanna be your reflection,
so I would know how it feels,
to be a person of perfection,
I want to give you my love,
and show you affection,
I love everything about you,
you are my sexual obsession,
I want to explore your body,
can we have another late night session?
we have plenty of time,
my love for you,
will never need an extension.
