ship wreck lies

I paint
outside the lines
such dyslexic sleep
I can’t change
my brain mixed
and sour seems
mathematical blames
makes sense to me
but the orchestra
of man talking
confuses god
from my hand
I find the pieces
too many
to claim
so I leave them
where they fall
like the ship wrecked lies
everyone tells
to blame

the more I’m bought the less I cost

I wear
your dishevelled ignorance
a book by covers
never lasts
so I sell
my poems
for nothing
a long list
of town criers
that never really existed
but to sweep hearts
under the rug
where time felt
best to ask
and I tell you nothing
you don’t already know
the best part
of anyone
is the freedom
to be who
you are
a long list
of town criers
that never really existed

things about trouble

I try not
to say her name
such small make beliefs
that she never existed
but to kiss me
such shadow lies
I tell anyone
who will listen
that things happen
for no good reason
random god’s
change their minds
and friends everyday
and I bury treasures
in the yard
that no one will ever find
and I remember
my hand in fate
that I let go first
such shadow lies
I tell anyone
who will listen
