Toxic Bloom

You leave behind a hue

A toxic bloom.

I want to know 

more about you,

your essence evokes me.

Makes me wanna see,

your deformities, your aches

learn all your mistakes.

I want to be everything 

you never knew.

I want to save you.

Glue​

I am lost soul glued to an immobile shadow

Eyes always closed,

If I open them its a 

horror I only know.

The smell of roses splashed with blood.

It's enough to lose my fading wit,

Ill never move on,

It stays with me 

like skin

to bone.

Havoc​

I

I walked out because she couldn't handle 

the tragic words spilling out of my mouth.

I didn't realize the magic to release my minds 

Havoc

Without a doubt,

I knew I said too much, my brain was telling me to stop

but my heart was telling me what's the rush?


I pause.


I have to realize not all are like me and can tell a story so

tragically,

yet gracefully.


We will never grow as humans if we continue to come to conclusions and have small minds.

Let's come up with, 

solutions, 

and have life transfusions

We can't fix mental well being if we can't even handle 

the meaning.

Life isn't always rainbows and halo's 

It can be void of tomorrows and gloomy tempos, fallen dominos 

and leave a fucked up afterglow. 

But, 

Isn't that how they make superheroes?

Self-love


It’s a powerful feeling and indeed freeing,

reaching deep inside your soul to find self-love

you will leave many behind.


You will start to decline sharing your space with 

people who don’t share the same state of mind.


Reaching for a higher love is never worthless;

in fact , it should be your purpose 

even if your the only one that take notice.


The moment your realize you’re enough, 

nothing else will matter.


You will be ready for new chapters

and even new disasters.
