The Last LaughHA HA HA HA!The Last Laugh11 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
They say I'm crazy.
Not to say that they're wrong.
I'm insane! I do what I want when I want!
Nobody dares stop me!
But I never used to be this way.
I used to be so sad, so sullen,
Before I found the FUNNY side of things!
I don't remember my past.
There are several theories.
If I'm going to have a backstory,
I'd rather it be multiple-choice
So I may pick-and-choose my identity.
Don't look at things in that dark, glum way you see them.
Try a straitjacket on for size…
…the feeling is quite nice once you get used to it.
All I know is
I don't want to be silenced.
Not yet, anyway.
I want to have
THE LAST LAUGH!
Self TalkHappy ever afters only happen in fairytales and you're no princess.Self Talk6 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
Keep yourself together. Smile. Behave normally. Keep your head up high. Move on.
Liar, you know that all you want to do is to lie in bed, curl up, cry and never face the rest of the world ever again. Cry until you go blind. Cry until you die of dehydration and blood loss. After all tears contain a tiny amount of blood.
For Christ's sake at least have some dignity. This is reality. Face it. Be strong.
Reality shmeality, you know you secretly want to be one of those crazy people who live in their own head where they have a high flying career, a loving partner, 2 wonderful kids, a cat and a nice house in the suburbs. When in reality they're locked up in a rubber room somewhere in a fucking straitjacket. Reality is fucked up.
You're already 18 going on 19. Soon to be 20. An adult. You're too old for this.
Who says there's an age limit for heartbreak?
Ok, it's just puppy love then. You're only 18

The Monroe Curse
When you're not a twig.
When you have hips,
An ass, and a chest.
When you can't see your ribs.
When you have a figure.
Things that some people would kill for
But sometimes you don't want it.
Sometimes, you want to weigh 90 pounds
And you want to be a stick
It always comes back to your mind
That isn't sexy.
That isn't attractive.
And the guys that like that,
And in bed.
19 Years OldI was just nineteen years old19 Years Old1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
When I cut myself in two
The boy I wanted them to see
And the boy they never knew
Hid my hollow bones away
I've been hiding ever since
Yes, you may see the odd smile
But only ever a glimpse
But my heart was never broken
It was born in several pieces
And with every passing year
The size of the segments decreases
I was just nineteen years old
When I died for the first time
I did not cope so well
With leaving my childhood behind
I didn't want to face up
To these wretched bent back blues
But will I give in to the struggle?
No, with respect I refuse
See my grandfather gave me
The stubborn heart of an ox
I will die before I collapse
A coward I am not
