I Do Believe in Fairies

Do you believe in Fairies ?

Don’t laugh just think.

Do you believe in stories with no proof?

Stories to make you feel better. Stories to shut you up.

You might as well.

I always thought that if I loved hard enough magic would happen.

That you would return the favor.

Oh Disney and Hollywood

All those stories that make you feel good.

I grew up on those, made wishes to the skies

But I may have found out about Santa

But not the rest of those lies.

Deeper

Dig deep you sad little thing

Find that flutter, buried under hard concrete.

Deeper. Deeper.

It’s in there… somewhere.

What does it take, to make the earth shake ?

For you ?

Is it fire that gets you going

Or do prefer ice ?

You’ve forgotten I know

We all do.

So keep digging my friend.

Keep going through rock, sand and shale

You might fail. Or you might find seed

The one that needs the light.

The one you thought was dead.

The one buried in a hole.

Deep. Deep within your soul.

Smile

Better to hide under a stone

Alone.

Can a human hibernate ?

I would if I could.

But endless life just gets in the way of what I need.

This greed.

For sleep. For sleep. For nothing.

Can’t a person just be for fuck’s sake ?

Without the wake ?

Not forever just a while.

Until I can smile…

Or pretend to.

Swipe Left

I’m all misinformed and misaligned

These bones and thoughts just will not bind

This shell I’m in, just doesn’t go

With all the true things I know

My world is small because of my face

This misguided generation, this judging race

All they see are thinner lips

Uneven teeth … lumpy hips

What do they want ?

Are they insane?

To continue to ignore my wonderful brain !

Ok so it’s it’s not that amazing

I’m no Einstein

But give me a chance.

Give me time.

Don’t swipe left, give me a go

I’m amazing in bed for all you know.

Ok I’m not but you won’t find out

If you base your assessment on a glossy pout.

A sign that I care and am really me

Is that I’m not always taking a selfie

I’m out actually enjoying the fresh air

Instead of wondering about my hair.

So yes, the looks are what draw you in

But in a month your eyes will look within

So skip to me, I’m worth a shot

I promise I’ll give you all I got

Brain Dead

I have figured it out.

I understand Heaven.

It was never trees and water.

It was never your Mother or your long lost daughter.

No. It’s not gurgling brooks and Angels on Lyres

Away from sulfur and brimstone fires.

Heaven is silence.

Golden and complete

Nothing then more… nothing

And then… repeat.

No more whirring thoughts

No more: what if’s and but’s.

Heaven is complete shut down

No worries or pain

It is the eternal slumber

Of your worn out brain.

Sweet Streets

How sweet the pavement seemed today

I licked it as I walked.

Consumed the lemon light

It’s zesty beams resting lightly in my mouth.

I’m leaving you see..

And nothing makes the street seem sweeter

Than knowing that soon I will walk it no more

Those trudging,weighted steps of yesterday

Seem so far away.

A hop, skip and a lump in my throat

I will miss the smiling man on his bike

The old, shuffling lady with her bowled over gait

And most of all,

I will miss you.

The streets where you live.

Where your candy kisses coated my tongue

And your sherbert eyes still fizzle in my brain.

Bigger Me

Where do I draw the line ?

When does being the bigger person, make you feel small ?

Another apology on righteous ears

To stop my tears ?

Is it brave to forgive ?

Better to forget and live ?

Maybe courage is just letting go

Of something old,borrowed and blue.

You.
