I’ll Be Okay

A tale of love

Unrequited,

Ever so sad

Yet I’m secretly

Delighted

To have experienced it.

Otherwise,

How would I have known?


‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’

It’s not you

It’s not me

It’s just the way

It has to be

Monogamy

After all is said and done

With battles lost and wars won

I’m starting to think differently

And relationships now are not for me


Expired

If you no longer love each other

Then what’s the fucking point

Just staying together to destroy each other

Noses always out of joint

Why not just call it quits

As it’s clear neither of you tries

That has to be better than being miserable

Until one of the two of you dies

No Hard Feelings

It wasn’t our time

Nor was it the place

But I’ll never forget

Your sweet embrace


The Reference

When it is

I see

Her next

I’ll be sure

To let

Her know

How you’re

Passionate,

Funny

And kind

And how

It hurts

To let

You go

Taking A Telling

Over one thousand lifetimes

My answer would always be no

For it doesn’t matter

How much you flatter

I’d never again stoop so low


The Hopeless Romantic

You’ll
never
be the
one for
me,

So why
can’t I
just
leave
it alone?

Why do
I keep
getting
my hopes
up,

When
you’ve
made your
feelings
known

Rhyme 101

I was obviously aiming

For something highbrow

Yet I fear this one

Misses the mark somehow

I’ve gotten better, I hope,

And developed this skill

So these words I can now

Consign to landfill


Underground

As
sinister
shadows
loom,
I
see
my
tomb.

Through
the
gloom,
my
dreams
resume.

I Am Now

I do not look

Over my shoulder

For I am brave

I am bolder

You will not beat me

Any longer

Because I am better

I am stronger


Yearning

Time passes

Like a dream

In my mind

As I remember

Everything

I’ve left behind

Graduation (In Absentia)

I do not need your cap and gown

For I already have my own crown

Such pomp and circumstance mean nothing to me

So you can fuck your Master of Arts Degree

The Sage

Tell me
how
you do
it

She
said

How
do you
stay so
strong

I
don’t
really
know

He
said

I make
it up
as
I go
along

The University of Life

I’m
learning
more and
more, day
by day.

Going to
lectures,
finding
my way.

Knowing
when to
work and
when to
play

Hoping
you’ll
be there,
on my
Graduation
Day.
