TruthIt's a mysteryTruth7 years ago in Free Verse
why I ever caught your attention
I never thought myself as beautiful
as remarkable, as amazing
and yet you tell me everyday
So long a time
I believed something so different
ridiculed by many
shunned by the rest
But now that I have you
it is so much different
my head once again held high
showing who I really am
It doesn't matter what others think
Your words are all I need
your touch is all I feel
My smile is only for you
Because when you tell me
I believe you
as I hope you believe me
when I say the same
Because it is the truth
At least in my opinion
TruthLong ago I wrote my wisest words of that young ageTruth6 years ago in Songs & Lyrics
I had written many lines, but most I would reject
Suddenly my pencil then entrusted to the page
that the Truth is always more important than its side effects.
And I never knew
If I had written truth
I've been thinking ever since to find the greatest truth
to make sense of the paradox confusing all our lives
A philosopher I soon became
the subject has since stayed the same
Should we think, or should we feel; will the wits or heart survive
And I never knew
How to find the truth
Now, did i finally find the right way
to live, and help you from sorrow?
I'd tell you to know about yesterday,
feel about today, and think about tomorrow.
Yet, when thinking of you
I feel for you too;
just a side effect of the truth?
-truth-will you meet me in the spaces-truth-8 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word
between our fingers
indivisible, but one
(and all the smaller pieces
that don't matter)
a hollow note
twenty minutes to dawn
(i know this because we've been here before)
in this moment, and this thing of arms and arms entwined, called embrace
this moment on soft notsosoft ground sheets
it's the same
and in this moment
this moment is again
and your voices
singing as the past
ceilings and walls
that do not house me
anymore, i hear you
you are farther away
when i am with you
than when we are
so far apart
i do not have a traditional clock
that could tick away the night
in even tones
to focus on
when i'm trying my hardest not to be awake
i only have digitalisations left
The TruthYou want to know the truth?The Truth4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
I envy you a lot
The bonds that you all share
Are what I've always sought
I don't think that I can
Ever have such things
Because of who I am
With my insecurities
I crave the touch of a friend
But I'm too scared to ask
I don't want to seem needy
So I'll just wear a mask
I'll keep it all inside
The loneliness and pain
Otherwise I'll burden you
Which will make me so ashamed
Although I don't deserve you
I don't want to be alone
To keep you from leaving me
I'll give up everything I own

TruthWe are often eager to surrender,Truth1 year ago in Free Verse
Because the burden of choice is harsh.
We would rather blame others for our failings,
Instead of seeking an answer within our mistakes.
I am as guilty as anyone else when it comes to this.
How many days have I spent screaming at the darkness;
Spitting bitter words that blistered my own lips...
Even as my eyes grew clouded, shrouded by hate.
I railed against iron walls about a solitude I had created.
Anger became my mask for an open plea:
Because I simply wanted someone to acknowledge me...
