Accomplice

January 28th, 2011

I’m still dreaming about you
I never pictured this outcome
You’re like a nightmare
That I can’t wake up from
So many words wasted
On poems written about you
I never wanted any of this
I hope you’re haunted too
Get out of jail free
Should not exist
As partners in crime
You also deserve this
I’m drowning in guilt
There is no remedy
You can leave a person in the past
But you can never erase the memory

Write You Away

December 18th, 2010

No other words to describe it
I still wonder in guilt
I call this confusion
Locked in the walls I built
They’re not coming down
I live life in shame
And the more I start to wonder
The more I feel insane
Nothing’s alright
Nothing’s okay
Why are you still on my mind
Why won’t you go away
I write you off
The words drop from my pen
But after sometime
You’re back once again

Treading

I’m running in this race
With no destination
My heart beats off pace
I don’t know which location
But my anxiety eats away
Like I’ve done something wrong
Constant imposter syndrome
When I just want to belong
A burst of inspiration
Is blown out like a flame
But the burning continues
I can still feel the pain
And I can’t help it sometimes
I feel like a burden
Using words against me
Is this life when you’re urban
