Caves

 

I had already felt the shell of myself tightening

And you decided to break the cave inwards

 

Diaspora

 

Child of the universe,

Lotus of the water and the mud,

Roots that are deep in the earth,

Wings as vibrant and forceful of the wind,

Where do you find homage

Do you settle

Or keep evolving

 

Blues

 

What if evolving

Was never the answer

But only a season,

A cycle

we must pass through

What if a destination,

A final form,

Isn’t real

If so, that means every day

Is a chance to reinvent yourself

To breath in new life,

New change.

Therefore,

Settling is a myth

 

Medieval

 

I bartered my trust

For your understanding

But it was a unilateral agreement

As compassion goes hand-in-hand with understanding.

The times are old,

The habits seem unbreakable.

 

Ralph

 

Self-reliance is taught as the basis of society

I told you I felt selfish by being selfless

Because this made me whole

Other people’s incompleteness

Fulfilled me

Their empty hands

Persuaded me to empty mine

Their scars made me feel

Safe to show my own

 

 

Unrequited

 

Maybe you loved me,

Because I taught you how to love yourself

Through me loving you

 

Episode Orange

 

I do not have a beach house to sell you

In Idaho,

All I had to give was myself,

And the tornado flew around my room, but

I see now, that was you

 

Beetlejuice

 

Ruler of the skies,

I heed to your name,

Won’t you immortalize me?

Because maybe then,

People will remember me

And want to learn how I inhabit

The night skies of lovers

 

Sixth Period

 

You’re like a violin string,

Harsh to touch,

Made of metal,

But you also compose the greatest

And purest sounds

In another life, maybe,

I will be the horsehair in the bow

And we will compose together

 

Coming of Age

 

You are an era

That must come to an end

Because I need someone to tend my thorns

And not drown me in water at the first sign

Of wilting
