My Poetic Soul: October (+life update)

October 31, 2017



So many times

You’ll expose your soul

And wait for the world


But it keeps going

And reads poetry

Like a Sunday paper


So when it all

Seems like too much

Keep going


But when that

Seems like too much

The world is not enough



Maybe Just Live


One day I think I’ll realize that all my words were just vomit of poetic bullshit

Just a prescription to remedy my life

It was just just just.... 

I say it too much


But maybe maybe maybe

My brain will just stop 

I’ll get to...

Just live


Maybe just live.



My Favorite Poems


I want to read every page

To infinity

I want to press the text

Onto my skin


I want to tattoo my soul

So the words bleed into my veins

And maybe then I’ll reach


A full




-my favorite poems



The Professor


I told her my story

And she looked at me


             Tears in her eyes

             Eyes of a woman

             Who holds the universe

             In her mind


She whispered

“That’s art”


-the greatest compliment



Coffee Shop Thoughts


Sitting alone

I’ve done it a lot lately

Watching people watch each other

We’re all looking at the same things

With different eyes

The same chemicals

With different minds





The pain the world has to offer

I feel it in my chest

Seeping into my gut


The love the world has to offer

I feel it in my mind

Seeping into my eyes



Those are tears





When did she grow up

When did she just know

Then unknow



All at once
