Because you have never been right... You left and all I thought, Every single f*cking night, Was how difficult I must have been. How much I must have messed with you, For you to leave so easily. For months, I was bruised and battered, Every single piece of us scattered, As if I had never … Continue reading Left
Call me a flower, maybe I'm made of regret, and false dreams. Grown in a soil of hope, but drowned in a river of shame. Boy of 16. Told me he could feel my pain, but his Tumblr had cats. I couldn't recall the way he smiled when he said it would be okay. He … Continue reading Hipster Girl gone Bad
If we took 5 minutes to consider what we said to someone, maybe there would be less broken hearts and paper drops of tears which your ex-girlfriend cried when you told her she was ugly. Maybe the world would be less cold, and you'd learn that you can't fix someone with staples and glue. I … Continue reading If We took 5 minutes to Consider What We Said to Someone… (Spoken Word)
I am Untitled, don't give me a name because apparently I'm never worth it. I'm the kid at the back of the class who tried to pick grass but ended up with his ass in the mud instead. He hit his head and you all thought it was funny when he came in the next … Continue reading Untitled
She told me that words used to burn her, and she would cling onto the hope of it ending one day. Her hands showed the pain and the way she used to beat herself against the wall, and call herself names. I watched her pick the grass one day and thread it between her hands as … Continue reading She Told Me (Spoken Word)
You must feel special because I wrote this about you, scribble down marks and lines to you. You always told me you were never hurt, and never felt pain. But then again, you said you were 'fine...' and then couldn't finish that line. I was so blind to you, when I was trying to be … Continue reading Not welcome Here (Spoken Word)
Free speech, free speech, do you want to spit it at me once again? Hide your words under a human right. A right to speak your views, what you feel, to tell the world how this is real. Free speech, a draft of your insults thrown into a computer, targeted at someones heart. Was it … Continue reading Free Speech (Spoken Word).
They told me hell didn't exist, but they also told me monsters dont. Monsters are what reflects back at us, that shadow in the distance, the nagging voice in your head. I've seen hell with my own eyes, and it isn't pretty. I have felt the flames lick at my skin, and watched the devil … Continue reading Heaven & Hell (Spoken Word).
To you, you cynic and you critic, spitting your words of hate. You're such a pessimist, but I'm pretty sure you're just pissed at how your life turned out. To the one who crushes dreams, they may seem impossible mine are just dreams, however I still chase them as if they are going to disappear. … Continue reading To the people who say that You can’t do it (Spoken Word).
They told me to write a poem, one to celebrate the art of rhymes, structures and creating something beautiful. I've always hated the ritual of celebration, its infatuation done wrong. My poem was awful, shameful and downright dismal. They told me to write something beautiful. My body was my blank canvas, and I wrote the … Continue reading They told Me to Write a Poem (Spoken Word)
