Rebellion 

I’m going to regret it

As adrenalin rushes through my body 

It’s too late now to end it


I grew horns overnight

Hid my halo behind my back 

Away from plain sight


Let’s break all the rules tonight 

One by one like dominoes 

Until everyone knows 


You’re no good for me

But every inch of you

Is what sets me free

Rants from a 22 yr old

I believe we were all here for a reason 

You just need to find out what it is

Do you know what’s painful?

Doing something that doesn’t ignite fire in you

I just think we all have a passion to do something 

Even though at times passion alone is not enough

But it’s something

And I think we should hold on to it

Something that makes your eyes sparkle when you talk about it 

Something that makes you feel alive…happy

Happiness?

That’s the most important thing to me

We already live in a black and white world 

We just need colour in it 

And whatever it is you love; it’ll make your life worth living 

Even if it doesn’t pay you every month

It gives you a sort of warmth, a sense of belonging 

It’s like the first time you met the love of your life 

THAT feeling

You should feel that everyday

To the point where you don’t walk on the ground anymore because you’ve created your own kind of heaven, right here on Earth

But 

Life doesn’t allow us to be like that

There’s a system 

That we follow like blind fools

Because “it’s the right thing to do”

But is it enough?

I don’t know 

If I’m alive, then why should I feel dead inside?

Makes no sense

This is my passion. Writing. Makes me feel more sane, makes me feel lighter and like I’ve accomplished so much by just one poem

And I guess for now… that’s more than i could ever ask for.


Heaven Sent 

She came home one day

Too tired to open her mouth 

And everyday

When she came back

She was too tired

Too tired to smile

To see… to feel



Her colours started to fade


Then one day

She stopped coming home

And I started to go to her 

To a place where everything had colour and life

Where she wasn’t too tired

Where she was happy.

Alive 

As dark as night 

My eyes still shut

But the the brightness of my glowing soul

When I’m with you 

Lets me find my way through my cluttered mind 

Memories

As I closed my eyes

I felt everything 

All the sensations 


The hurt

The lust

The passion 


And all at once

They drifted away 

Like the wind 


No to be seen

Or felt

Again.

Remember

Remember to breathe

Let serenity take over

As you start afresh


Remember to smile

Let it reach from ear to ear

As the sun shines brighter


Remember to forgive 

Let reason find its path

As your heart becomes lighter


Never forget 

To live

And be alive 

My sweet flower

The thrill

The excitement 

When your eyes sparkle

When your heart dances to a different rhythm 


Your cheeks getting rosier

Smiling from ear to ear 


You know it

He knows it

So does everyone 


That you’ve fallen

Without wanting to


A flower has sprung

Blossoming 

But a flower doesn’t blossom forever 
Once the clock strikes dark

It shall shrivel in despair 

And never be heard of again 

Shooting Stars 

They say if you count sheep  


You’ll eventually fall asleep


As I play with your hair

So soft and tangled like wool


I lay awake counting the stars instead 

Made a wish on a shooting star

Your wish may just come true they said

Drunk Love 

As I bite into it

As I twirl the ice cubes with it

His eyes don’t leave mine 


Not a single drop of whiskey 

The straw has become an accessory

A distraction 

My bare lips will give too much away


Head buzzing

Mind racing

Might have fallen in love drunk 

Or I might have just been drunk in love

Homo Sapiens

What makes me have peace

What makes me beam with happiness 

Both from within and outside 

Is the pleasure I get

Being alone.


No humans to interrupt my mind and turn everything to black and white

That’s where I find true happiness 

That’s where I spread my wings

And let my colours shine
Sigh.

Humans.
