My Poetic Soul: October (+life update)

October 31, 2017

Enough 

 

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

Enlightened

Understanding

 

-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

 

 

Poetry

 

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

 

Oh.

Those are tears

 

 

Maturity

 

When did she grow up

When did she just know

Then unknow

 

Everything

All at once
