My Poetic Soul: October (+life update)

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
