humans is that
we think we are

A simple word, with a simple meaning. Officially, it’s an attitude of optimism. A mindset that is often considered naïve- believing the best outcome will happen, no matter the odds.
We live on it. Thrive on it. Even villains and those considered ‘evil’ or ‘bad’ have hope. The hope to pull off a robbery without being caught. The hope that a shady business deal will go down without a problem. It’s all hope.
The darkest of our society use it and probably never realize it. Without hope, humanity would wither. We simply cannot exist without hope. The hope that today will not be the day a random and tragic accident takes our life. Every day carries the chance of death or tragedy- but we hope that it won’t happen. If we didn’t hope, if we didn’t get out of bed and face the day, our system would crumble.

But we must smile when it is read.
For we cannot show our true emotions.
Not of suffering, anxiety, or dread.
For we are the bringers of dreams to the world.
Our words are tales of healing light.
So hide your tears behind a mask,
And save them for a quiet night.

"I'm sorry," I stutter,

light the way into your sky,

they finally come true,
mine reflect in the murky filth
from which they can be seen
acting as disgusting mirrors
into a world which cannot be mine

kicking her feet
harder and harder,
as the swingset creaked
She finally reached the peak,
"Mama, I'm gonna fly."
and so she did;
three feet into the air,
sticking the landing
like a gymnast
And I wonder everyday
if those were the same words
before jumping off that bridge,
unable to remember,
you only fly for a little while.

I'm sure you want
that to mean alot of things
but in truth it means one
I'm sorry I never loved you
not in the way
you would've wanted me to
not in the way you needed me to,
I'm sorry I loved the ideal
of you and me
the wonderful beauty that
be birthed from our attractions
more than I loved the person
within that fantasy.
I'm sorry I forced
the delusion of perfection
upon you and held
you to those
of my selfish imagination.
I'm sorry that I placed
the necessity of us
above the desires of you.
that I wasn't the guy you deserved
and that I wasted my few chances
with someone as wonderful as you.
I'm sorry I never loved you
till you were already gone.

in liquid sorrows,
letting the salty mess
burn your wounds,
and the sadness
to drip in your mouth,
consuming your words
and you say
you deserve the pain,
but I want to dry your face,
and whisper in your ear
how the clouds cry too,
while they hold such beauty,
and so do you.
