MY FATHER’S HANDS
My father’s hands, were strong and firm,

Leave me in peace.
How can you expect me to like you when you unknowingly fractured my own ability...
I find myself saying things in conversation that could be mistaken as poetry. For example, I was talking to someone, and I randomly typed this out of nowhere.

I'll make you a man
l'll write you a song
I'll breathe you in deep
I won't do you wrong
Trust me baby
Because I'm not her

Society shapes us
It drives us
It conducts us.
It tells us what to wear
How to look
In order to “fit in”.
It tears us down
Without ever bothering
To rebuild us.
It tells us...
There's great truth in poetry disguised as sex and sex disguised as poetry.
My leather wings have grown so large. Sharpened horns make me ready to charge. Though I've decided to let you leave. It doesn't mean I put my heart on my sleeve.
Because I no...
What Would You Do:
I'm finding it harder to hide in myself.
Things I wouldn't say keep escaping my mouth.

A spell of sorts by moi
The moment of soft arms
Wrapping around shoulders broad,
Chest to chest,
Lips to lips,
And mouth to neck.
It is what it is, because
This is one of my worst because I was not thinking straight when making it but I still did so this is it and it has no name.
I trusted you with a secret
For a reason I can't...

The way we used to be
The love and empathy
The dream went on
Going day by day

Poetry is taking an ache and making it sing
The sun that's shining on me
Is the same sun shining on you.
The moon that's smiling at me
Is the same moon that's smiling at you.
We breathe the same air.

and you'll please me.
You'll be my king...

Why am I happy but don't feel whole
why am I weighed down by a mass-less soul
natural inclinations of a mind i didn't create
demonized and called reprobate
told life is a blessing...
with your death and ashes
pushing me past this

long ago, remembering what I know

gone are you
