“Keep Talking”


Show Text

there it is, i see it–
the truth behind your words.
you say things to me;
i get the hidden message.

you see, words are empty
when they aren’t validated
by so many other things.
keep talking.

i hear you;
but it doesn’t mean
that i’ll heed you.

everyone has their own truth;
and, mine is what i’ll follow.
for, no one can really sway me;
unless what they say
rings true to me.

“Thoughts”


Show Text

there she is–
lost in her thoughts, again.
he wants to tease her–rattle her;
even if that makes her yell at him.
he’ll do anything;
just so she stops going back,
to her memories of another man.
but, there he is–lost in her, again.
he wants to hit himself;
kick himself–even when it’ll hurt.
he’ll do anything;
just so he stops drowning in her,
over and over again.
for, seeing her delve in thoughts
of someone else,
hurts so much more
than anything else, ever can.

“Out”


Show Text

he was OUT–
free and unhindered.
he finally broke the ties
that bound him to her.
he could breathe again!

she was OUT.
he left her.
she was hurt,
in the beginning.
she felt abandoned.

yet, now she thinks,
it was what she needed
–so she could learn
to love herself.
she was free from her
oppressive need of him.

“Poverty”


In my opinion, poverty is a serious, social issue. It is a vicious cyclical problem–not only for the ones, experiencing it–but, for humanity. It is, also, a social obligation to help reduce its occurence.
