Absence

I’ve always felt lonely Surrounded by people I’m too deep within my thoughts To be here in this moment

Understand

Something about turning into a different me Something about the feelings inside Something about all my memories Something about the way words float around me Something so lovely, so lonely

Places

Thoughts in the head Need space to disperse

Everybody Needs

You are cut out for more than Soft waves and being liked You deserve the most Smiles may light up your day, That’ll be enough And you deserve everything else Your worth may only be measured by one trait Yet I’ll stand here and recognize everything

Soul Search

I would decorate my skin In order to hide flaws Now I emphasize them To enhance my beauty I’m stuck in a mirrored world Yet they don’t see me

Pretty like Red

I’m terrified. It’s tearing at my insides. Love is like this, The feeling haunts me.

Gone

Ever gone reaching? Grasping? And your arm is too short. Or your muscles are too weak. And something stands in the way.

Two

I worked on words for a living Starting before the age of seven It took parts of me away Crafted an artist in my soul

Flying

Fluttering with butterfly wings Across balconies and rivers Aching to float away Hurting to feel okay

Hypocritical

Who am I to pronounce feelings which belong in you? We remain unalike, Unseparate Who am I?

When beauty is ugly

Dripping like gold next to my chin leaving a scar on my left ear Red and bruised Heat radiated Then seeped into my flesh

Summer

Electric waves Thunderstorms On mount Fuji Iced fruits alongside boiling tea All wrapped in plastic Dancing in train stations While crying in temples
