Sipping From Your Lips

When I take a sip from your lips it’s like sipping a sweet poisonae3fca72844db4ebc48647263986af8f

It feels delightful and clouds my judgement

But it’s slowly killing me

The only antidote…

Keep sipping the poison

Constantly ingesting a little here and there

Or I’ll surely die

My Black Skinny Jeans

They say if you stop looking for it, it will appear when you need it

The problem is, today, we want instant gratification

We are all blinded to what we actually need by what our ideals and dreams are

What we think we want

It’s like, you go looking for black skinny jeans and you can’t find them anywheref1661ea533c64d21e629223875f86d41

Because you want them

You don’t actually need them

But everyone has a pair and they are wearing them all the time

Almost flaunting it in front of you

So I stopped looking

Got comfortable without having a pair

Then, when I forgot about them…

You appeared…

My black skinny jeans

 

Secret Safe Wall

On the worst of possible daysb83622511249116ec8bf3a261a380b9e

My childhood all over again

Hatred surrounding me

Not my fault but it’s my blood

Wishing things could of gone a different way

cbbf7caf14452549951e649d72383773I want to run to my haven

My safe wall where all my problems used to disappear

You didn’t have to say anything and I’d be happy just being there

There could be silence

For a few brief moments everything would be alright

I’d be reassured that I’d be ok

A distraction from reality

A secret place

I want to lean up against there now

Sit in the debris and just feel the cool dampness radiate through the back of my shirt

But it won’t be the same and you know why

 

Dark Space with You

9a53d0c998d71e3fce1e5f2fbfc49c36Middle of nowhere

I want to sit in the darkness with you

The moon illuminating the white of your eyes and the outline of your lips

Your sweet scent wafting towards my nose carried by the cool breeze

No doubt

No questions

Just you

Me

And the moment

Head in your lap staring into the dark void

Nothing but peace and silence with you

The sound of our breath

Inhale

Exhale

Just to feel your warmth in nothing but space is where I want to be

Grasping What You Can’t Achieve

3e5d5b8eb8e7cd4628f0667c5f3b3109It’s hard to ignore something you want
When you can’t have it it’s everywhere you go
You can’t turn your head because it’ll be right in front of you again
Staring at you in the face
But you can’t grasp it
Making you suffer
Proving to you that you have a long way til’ actually getting what you desire

Bottles

We live in bottlesb210b5ff0656551db284b7e7579549b6

Water from plastic bottles for survival and hydration

Anti-depressants from an orange twist-off so we don’t take our lives or the lives of others

Bottles of alcohol to drown out our sorrows

Bottles of liquor to give us courage and have a good time

We bottle our true selves and our feelings

Let the bottle fill up and soon it’ll burst

Get to the bottom of it and you’ll be empty

We will never be happy and fully satisfied

One bottle after another
