are you satisfied?
or are you stuck?
is this just a play where are merely actors
or has shakespeare truly created our world
is this a tragedy or a comedy?

will our questions ever be answered?
or will we sit in the grey area?
nothing is ever black and white.

You might think someone is content, but a lot of times you never know what lurks beyond the surface. The self-hate, the self-destruction. It normally is just below what you think true content-ness should look like. We are masters of our own happiness so why don’t we let ourselves.

tricked

He told me he’d walk me to my dorm
he told me it would be okay
he told me that I wanted it
and at some point I thought maybe I did?

but it didn’t matter at the end of the night I felt dirty and tricked
and that’s a feeling I haven’t been able to wash away no matter how many times I’ve tried.

united

today, I had Chinese.

Life is never more fun than when you’re the underdog competing against the giants.

Doesn’t this seem like a quote about depression?

blurred

there was this pitter patter on the roof. the sound blaring into my ears–ringing. the rain was against the window pain, blurring my vision from the outside.

headband

she wore it because she liked the look, in style, on the magazine covers. she wore it because it remembered her of her mother, the last gift she received. she wore it because he said he liked it and he lied.

complicated

complicated, yes it’s complicated. you left us, and I don’t know what to do. I don’t even totally believe it. I don’t know what to do. I can say I liked you immediately, we all liked you. I can say I remember the moments of happiness and how we felt so free. and I remember what it was like to see you smile and laugh and I remember that you were always there. and now you’re not.

eleven

at eleven I lost friends, and I’m reminded now at twenty why. because they’d left me out, they left me standing all alone. back when the darkness was too much and I couldn’t support myself and now I think about the kids who almost make me cry by the blatant exclusion and remember that I don’t need them anymore, not any more. I can make myself feel shitty all by myself.

confined

I’ve been confined in my mind, trapped and the invisible curtain cries from my eyes.

tailgate

last week my foot soaked in the mud and the sweat poured down my body as my body pulsated in the sunlight. I won’t go again, but I’ll be convinced too.

tutoring

two to a row
under benches
they scour the hour
often looking for their escape
’round every corner
inside each soul
never leaves the people they love
gathered together they look like paintings.

departure

we ran like wildlings into the dark, wielding our own emotions. and he looked back just to smile
