I think I’m funny
But I know that I’m not that funny
At the best I’m kind of punny
But mostly I’m punishing the people
Around me who have to hear another attempt
At me trying to tempt them to like me
For more than just the jokes that I say.
I’m keep on praying that my prey
Won’t run away from the mask of a clown
I wear when I try to make new friends.
I can’t show them the lone kid crying in his room.

Performing illusions for the illusions
He made up to make himself feel wanted.
All I’ve wanted was to make others happy.
I want to make others smile.
To make them forget all their problems for a little while.
But its not my style to be entertaining.
So I end up complaining to the echos
Alone in my room.
Alone with my thoughts,
Alone in my tomb.

Funny Guy   Leave a comment

I think I’m a funny guy
With tears dropping into my salt free chips
Lazing around while chugging energy drinks and blasting speed metal
Speaking my mind and saying so little
Taking the rooftop exit instead of the stairs
Trying to take serious
How absurd the world is
It’s funny I think
I’m funny

Small Talk   Leave a comment

I brought it up
‘Cause it bothers me too
I didn’t mean
To bother you
So I’ll shut up
Like I usually do
And talk about the weather.

My Poetry   Leave a comment

​My poetry
Is me knowing me
Or me blowing me
I haven’t decided yet

Dropoff (National Poetry Writing Month 2017 #30)   Leave a comment

There isn’t much to say
We’ve known each other for 8 years
But don’t have much in common
Except for one important thing
Since she is busy watching My Little Pony
I’ll just say goodbye and go.

Habit: 3 Lunes  (National Poetry Writing Month 2017 #29)   Leave a comment

I’m stuck in habits
I don’t want
They hamper my life

But change is so hard
If instead
I don’t have to think

If I want a life
Worth living
I’ll need to work hard

Utah Weather (National Poetry Writing Month 2017 #28)   Leave a comment

Utah weather; There is nothing better
Than wearing shorts in snow

Or bringing sunscreen and an umbrella
Wherever you may go

Always be prepared, just like a boy scout
Because you never know

If you are going to melt with heat stroke
Or if winter will show.
