Poem For The Survivor

I don’t expect you to know what happens under my skin

Nor do I expect you to care

But recognize the fact that you will never understand

Every pigment of my air

I may be clouded

And you might find me a sheeple

But trust me honey when I say

That I put my entirety out

And survived the day

Instead of looking at others misery

Instead of swimming in a fantasy of false pride

“I wonder what’s on this channel”

Actor 2: *BEEEEEEEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEEEEEEEP BEEEP BEEP**

“Well that’s a shame.”

“That must’ve been a  inventive panoply of insults”

All The Things I’ll Never Tell You

I don’t think you’ll hear me

I’m too small for you

I’ll fade into the clouds

As the evening turns blue

I’m smitten, I’m smitten, I’m smitten

Could it possibly be true?

I wish you could listen

To all the things I’ll never tell you

Why Blame The Cardiac Muscle?

“The heart wants what it wants.”

No!

Leave the poor muscle alone

It works really hard 24×7 to keep you alive

The brain is the real culprit

The brain is supposed to know when to stop crossing oceans

The brain is supposed to know when to run away

The brain is supposed to know when to accept reality

But it doesn’t

The Daily Prompt: Anticipation

” I anticipated this move from you.”

Well you should’ve done something about it maybe?

“We were anticipating your return for a very long time”

You should’ve called?

Anticipation is weird in movies

It’s so dramatic

The only time I’ve the word anticipation in a dramatic situation

Is when I anticipated that you would come out of the bathroom sooner

The Daily Prompt: Aromatic

I enjoy your company

I really do

But you know what else I like?

Soap

I understand how sweat works

Which is why I know that you can’t blame it on sweat every single time

I have one complaint I wish I could raise

Without sounding like an asshole

You’re nowhere close to even consider the word Aromatic

Did I say that out loud?

Uhoh.

The Daily Prompt: Scorched

Stress is a mess

And that’s an understatement for anxious people

Not that everyone doesn’t have to deal with stress

Nor am I comparing it how others experience it

We’re just tired all the time

It’s more like a feeling where you know that your brain is scorched

Daily Prompt: Scorched

Scorched
