HugYou walk up to me.Hug7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I look at you like a cat that is unknowingly trying to imitate an emote.
As your approach comes to an end you put your arms out. Both going past my body on either side.
Then simply, "Hug?"
I do not comprehend this word, your intent nor punctuation.
Your arms tighten around me and your chin rests on my shoulder.
I stand there
what is this new emotion.
EscapeWhen I stay up at night thinkingEscape7 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
When I daydream in the middle of the day
When I sit and write my poetry
When I look into the digital sea that is the internet
When I smile or laugh at a joke with no meaning
When I zone out
When I lie down for the night
When I stare into the complete darkness before I depart to the land of dreams
I try to climb a wall to the rope that will allow me to escape
But the walls are to smooth
Patted down with the solid and smooth surface of pain
This thing I call life
Am I any good at it?
Am I going to fail as predetermined by the world?
Am I going to end and be represented as the nothingness that I see?
I try to escape these harsh questions
But low and behold they follow me as if I packed them
Maybe I did
Between the socks and shirts . No
With the toothbrush . No
I think I packed it in the deep subconscious of the maze I call my mind
Unfortunately for me there is no escape

Kittens are evil I tell you, its true!
With fur made of Velcro and super glue.
Their big yellow eyes are poison no doubt
And they hack and they gag til their insides are out.
They paw and they claw and they shred all your stuff,
Theyll reduce your couch to wood splinters and fluff.
They cough and they purr and they hiss and they mew,
And if you arent careful theyll scratch you up too.
But one thing so bad it can top all of that:
When a kitten grows up it turns into a CAT.
