the picture of us

You've Gone Far EnoughHow many times have you tried, just to put me down,You've Gone Far Enough5 hours ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The last time I remember, I was underground.
And even then I rose up, just to challenge the greats.
You might be thinking that your wins are all a part of your fate;
But it's not!
You're a little puppet in the game,
And when you try to take me out, you'll be feeling the strain!
I will be breathing down your neck and it's offense;
No nonsense. I am the Word of Chen, execution commence!
And now you're feeling the pressure, I'll make you suffer;
Your words try to cut me, but you're bleeding your brother!
You don't recognize that I'm the one who paved your way;
And now you're crying, sweating bullets, while you kneel and pray-
I don't find you. You're scared! Your soul is bared,
The only thing that makes us different is the fact that I cared!
But it don't matter now boy! You can laugh and smile,
Because the only thing left is to burn you in a Word of Chen style.

I Used To Have A ReasonI used to have a reason to do what I do,I Used To Have A Reason1 day ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Now it is just a habit I am trying to get through,
Meaningless motions, without emotions,
Trying to keep a clean conscience.
Embracing the darkness in the dim light,
I do not think I will sleep another night,
It is 4 AM, and there is no meaning,
To feel what I used to be feeling.
The pen slides through snow white paper,
It cuts it in two like a sharp saber,
But what is the point of doing this all
If It feels empty just like this Fall?
To fill the void I leave to fate,
There is no love, there is no hate

My HomeYou walk in the front door, and the first thing you notice is that my home is a mess. Stuff is strewn about everywhere, nothing is put away. But this isn’t just the mess of carelessness, no, there’s a reason it looks ransacked. Looking around, you see that reason.My Home2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
There are no closets in my home.
The front door had “shy,” “awkward” and “introvert” written all over it, but the doorbell proudly announced “nice guy” with a footnote specifying “not that kind of nice guy.”
In the main room you see “childlike,” “daydreamer,” and “gamer” scattered all over the floor, shelves stuffed full of “bookworm.” A huge box overflows with “collector” and the occasional “hoarder.”
The kitchen has “wants to cook” shelved right next to “can’t cook.” The “out-of-shape” in the fridge has gone bad but I haven’t th

But we didn't know, I didn't even remember them until I saw them.

I was on the phone to my friend and i could hear my mother shouting,
"This isn't right."
"This can't be right."
"Tell me it's not true."
Then the screaming came,
and i felt my stomach drop, something was wrong.
But when i stepped outside,
Everything was fine.
The sun was still shining,
wind still blowing.
Then those words,
Thats all i heard over the screaming and the crying and suddenly it wasn't so perfect,
I couldn't hear,
I couldn't breathe,
i could barely see.
Yet i moved.
I moved to comfort my mother whose screams i could no longer hear,
because she didn't need me.
She needed him.
We all did.
We all do.
And although my legs still shake and my eyes are stained with black rings.
I still move,
And i still see.
Ever since that day,
despite what they said and what they told me,
I never stopped moving
The Weepings of the PhoenixI can't think of many timesThe Weepings of the Phoenix3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
That I've cried so much.
When feelings won't turn to rhymes
And from reality, I'm losing touch.
Sobbing and lying in my weepings,
Praying to a God that I don't believe in.
When these hands they tug
Towards the River Styx.
My resolve like concrete I hug
But a wolf can break into a house of bricks.
This poor piggy sits alone
And waits to just be eaten.
I fell to my knees to fear The Lord
And appease his pope.
But my heart he won't come aboard
And I'm losing hope.
Only have a sail full of holes
And life in Sargasso ain't too breezy.
So we sing of,
So we burn down.
So we sing of
As it all,
Trying to burn away my pains
With these hands of ash.
But my head went up in flames
And my brain turned to mash.
Sitting back to the door,
Shirt up, and skin kissing metal.
The only peace I can find
Is with her and sleep.
I can't escape this flame
For it burns internal.
So we sing of,
So we burn down.

they told me it didn't count if you felt like dying
unless you had it down on paper
like a vetoed birth certificate.
i've rewritten it enough times since
to realize i could never leave with a proper goodbye.
goodbye is too heavy a word for paper to hold
and i was never brave enough for the kind of courage it takes to tell them
why they weren't enough to keep me here.
but i'm finally learning a different kind of bravery-
the kind it takes to
i learned to wear death
like rope burn my junior year
my senior year we became friends
but i finally stopped cutting the insides of wrists
when i finally realized death never arrives on time,
i started smoking when i turned 18
to speed his arrival
because somedays, 15 less earth rotations around the sun sounds like a blessing.
2 years later I'm still learning to let the self destructive habits go
I stopped smoking again
threw the knife away and closed the toilet lid.
Lung CancerTake this moment to…Lung Cancer1 week ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Stand with head held up high
Chin pointed up to the sky
Knowing that sooner or later nothing really matters because you are going to die
But that does not mean you cannot fly
In this moment
Suspended in the branches of the universe
Are all of the countless possibilities
That have yet to happen,
So take a deep breath:
Inhale the smell of infinity
Taste success and failure
Listen to the echoing legacy the stars share
Hold yourself up high and so close that your soul can wrap around itself again and again,
Look at the white fog exhaled from lungs stronger than ten thousand men
That never gave up.
Do not give up on them.

Offered for free by a troubled mind
Who in her sex finds a deep crime.
It is right here, so close to us,
This violence against the kin of Venus
Girlfriend and mother,
Sister, daughter, lover.
So close to you, so close to me
That I wish I had 1000 eyes to see
The danger far ahead and to avoid
The words that bruise one so
The touch that violates my womanhood.
Protect me, please, protect her too,
Speak up, disclose the aggressor
serenity builds herself in solitudeand it's days like thisserenity builds herself in solitude3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
when the sun rises over grey and white;
rushing while the world sleeps under this blanket,
and although i'm wide awake, i too, slumber
and wander as if in a trance
later, the sun is higher
and the only trace of the quiet morning
is the gentle blast of heating -
almost superfluous under the azure sky.
it's as if the clouds had fallen
but were finally blown away in the crispness of day -
and in the midst,
this lull in the mind -
a haze that has drifted into my very psyche
bringing quietness, and for once,

Maybe what's in the bottle -
will speak what I cannot tell.
Your smile is the stars
and I feel your embrace at night
You have changed my fears
and have made the darkness bright.
There is much to discover -
in and beyond the ocean blue.
But for now I'll seal this note
with a kiss to send to you!

How many times shot in the head
Wearing a bullet proof vest
Hoping to wake up dead
Locked in a black and white bubble
Risks to scared to take
Trapped in mental rubble
Fifty shades of trouble
Fifty shades of grey
Fifty shades of fucked up
Fifty shades of lead
Wallow in despair
Over and over the ghosts image reels
Fucked up beyond all repair.
Soul SearchingSoul SearchingSoul Searching2 hours ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
We forage into the unknown
mapping the dips and hallows of each other’s forms
drawing gasps and strained sounds
from crevices in opulent flesh
Our souls wink at each other in the blackness
peeking out from underneath the surfaces that trap them
wicked and glittering
drawn forth from within us to surround us
with their sultry warmth
The inversion creates delicious tension
that climbs and crescendos
until they surge up our scintillating spines
only to suddenly drop back into our centers
hot and heavy with an ephemeral gravity
Your sweet whispers
rush on wings of baited breath
to hang heavily between us in the dark
collecting dew from our intermingled moist bodies
Once high pitched in their feverish, fervent movement
they now lay limp and languid
luxuriating in the low lamp light
that encloses us like a cocoon
But we are content to stay there
wool gathering and drifting into other states of consciousness
while wrapped in one another’s sticky and sweat slicked sk

A vivid dreamAs I sat in my room, the clock was nearing midnightA vivid dream1 day ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
A grim realization dawned upon me; this night
I shall not sleep, for my mind
is the kind that races
and paces, around and around
if left unattended
And sadly I forgot to keep it in check
So began my mind's long and uncontrolled trek
I thought about trees, bees and the sky
And about the fact that we all live and die
I wondered about the sound of the fox
And gave some thought to the origins of rocks
My mind's eye sailed, and saw wooden docks
And tried to figure out how we have dogs
I thought about you, and
the fact, that maybe it's true
when my mind whispers
"I love you"
It makes me wonder:
My Pain Begets Blasphemy.All I ever wanted was to fix this fucking worldMy Pain Begets Blasphemy.2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Or watch it burn and find a better one instead
But I'm scared that I won't find another lucky world
Too sad alive too scared to die until I'm dead
I dreamed of fresh green, a sex queen, to get my stress cleaned
Off the rusted dirty gears of my mind, and be a sex fiend
Walk streets like a whore, nothing more, not the chore
Of offering my body up to bitches like a store, no
I was just interested in escaping into a life like a porno
Eating up hash mashed brownies like Digiorno
Cause the kid in me got fucked but the man in me didn't
Intellectually and sexually, respectively the difference
Cause I seen my dreams perverted when I don't believe in anything
Cause honestly you honesty made me believe in better things
But now it just feels like a crime when they look at you
I wanna tell em all "scram before I throw this fucking hook at you"
To me, you're not a prospect for someone to be booking you
You're not meat or object, so who the fuck should
EmptyWords spill from my mouthEmpty2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Like wet paint down a wall
All I hear is people screaming
Will their voices stop believing
In the sights we all are seeing
Press addresses crooked messes
As the world watches
No one dares to ask a question
Seems as though these lies aren't fiction
And though a piece of me still lingers
I too shall hid behind the whispers
That make up the wondering viewers
As lies are spread through all the papers
Tell me when will you stand your ground
When will you want your answers
Will you just die like all the others
With nothing more but common banter
