Steer

For the first time in a long time
I’m excited to see where it goes
it ain’t here
Unable to steer

Sometimes love just disappears
even before it develops
I wish you were here
do you feel me, can you hear?

‘Steer’ is a piece about having a different view in the beginning of a relationship, but wanting to try something different and letting the other part set the pace. Being overeager can quickly kill something that could have developed into a beautiful relationship.

The zone IV

Real truth is invaluable 
and luckily a reason for slight enjoyment
gets me through the zone faster
and helps me my feelings master

Author’s note:

‘The zone IV’ is the 4th and final part in an abstract and reflective piece about feeling more inspired and creative when writing poems, songs, etc. whenever you’re sad. It’s such a paradox and impasse because I appreciate writing, but I feel it’s best when I’m sad. On the other hand I’ve learned to appreciate these moments, so I get through my issues and feel better on the other side.

Waiting game

I don’t know you
but I want your arms around me
before it’s too late

ready behind my sniper rifle
your weapon of choice is a shotgun
you’ve got many choices, I might have none

Are they just for your entertainment
And not really my way to vent

Takes me to the zone

To force myself to cry

The covers

Hogging the covers
Passively
Until told otherwise
Oblivious to our demise

Taking the last glass
Again and again
Numbs the senses
Destroys existence of any offenses
