I Can't Help But Exhale.

A poem to the fellow peons from yours truly.

Much love ombres.

I Can't Help But Exhale.

Say something awful to me.
Tell me more worries until my heart bleeds.
Remind me I need it,
'Cause recovery happens in the most fucked up of ways.

Find me some sunlight,
Green flowers and a cigarette
To put me at ease.

Dreams tied up in meddlings become battered and worn.
My heart is a teardrop dwelling on the ocean floor.

& I can hear you sighing from the other room impatiently.
I wish you knew what that does to me-
Because frankly,
I feel like shit.

Please grant me some solace,
And you save some for yourself as well.

The green and the cigarettes are keeping me high,
Holding our troubles until we break down
But still try.

Can you see what's going on here?
Or has blindness metastasized from naivety?

We try and we try,
Though the seams appear to be continually undone.

So say something awful to me.
Tell me more worries until my heart bleeds,
Remind me I need it,
;Cause recovery happens in the most fucked up of ways.

i think poetry should have such words
which do not smell
when read
but ought to be perfumed

Not everything is meant to be so sweet,
As the innocent flower coos.
If only it was that easy,
And it wasn't hard to expose the truth.
