I have a natural rebellion To the status quo People say, You can’t redesign the wheel, But I care to try. Im inspired by outsiders. Women with hair. Men with makeup. And everyone Undefined. I love this new renaissance period We seem to be exploring. Everything feels Up for debate And I’m game. Let’s start asking The tough questions. And let’s have fun Along the way. For life is meant For curiosity. Without it, Who are we?
Tear up all your poems And shove them In your pocket And then Bit by bit Reach in And chew on them Through out the day. Get a taste for each Word. Lick you lips With wonder Over the diction and Syntax of each line. Now swallow.
I hear you whispering in my ear.
Knocking at my door.
There is something I have to tell you!
Something urgent, something true.
I turn on the light and squint with displeasure
"What is the password?", I say with amuse.
"Does it matter?", you hiss.
"Yes", I whisper back, "boundaries are a must. I don't just let anyone into my house, you see. Only I hold the key."
The darkness holds you still.
What happened to the people pleasing girl I knew?
But after a ponder you quickly propose,
"I'm sorry. I didn't mean what I said last night.
Will you please let me in?"
And from the depths of darkness you start hearing laughter calling
"Let you in?", I say. "You must be joking. I have nothing left to offer you. Time is of the essence and I cannot continue this game. Now leave me to sleep as I was having a good dream."
You shake your head with confusion
Our relationship had been your safest scheme.
Now what would you do? Rejection didn't suit you.
So you leapt from the porch in search of the next ear,
trusting she was near.
The ink is my memory
My reach into the past
Each line is like a hand I can't help but take
The escape is so real
One more hit, one more feel
You'll understand if you get one
It will make you come undone
The addiction tastes warm
Like crawling back into your mother's womb
It eases me
And when it is finished, I get to see my heart beat hung on my skin
Knowing nothing is akin
I am unique, regardless of what you say
And I will continue this investment of art until every dollar is paid
