The End (National Poetry Writing Month 2015 #30)   Leave a comment

I am not even going to pretend
That I’m not a relieved to be at the end
Although, for poetry, i have a proclivity
This month has definitely taxed my creativity.
I truly feel like I’ve run out of words to say.
I almost couldn’t write a poem today.
And so with that, I bid you adieu
30 poems done, it feels good to be through.

Solitary Confinement (National Poetry Writing Month 2015 #29)   Leave a comment

Solitary Confinement
Four walls closed in on me
Unfair Chastisement
For a crime that wasn’t committed
Solitary Refinement
To make a functioning member of society.
Undeserved Assignment
Of a moral debt that needs to be remitted.

Self Harm (National Poetry Writing Month 2015 #28)   Leave a comment

Tracing twisted pictures all across my arm
When did i become the person who takes pleasure in self harm?

I hate this sadistic masochist,
The me that seems to find joy in this.

Self destructive sketches drawn  again and again.
A false belief I am atoning for sin.

Or is it a misguided search for relief?
This evil, unwanted,disgusting belief.

Either way, the result is the same.
I lose my soul, and blood in this game.

I’m Still Broken (National Poetry Writing Month 2015 #27)   Leave a comment

It doesn’t matter how much progress I make,
Or how many steps I continue to take.
I’m still broken.

It doesn’t matter how much I try
Or how many times I ask myself why?
I’m still broken.

It makes no difference what I do,
Doesn’t matter what work I put myself through
I’m still broken.

I know that I’ll never be enough
I’m just a piece of glass. Jagged, rough,
And still broken.

Half Minute Haiku (National Poetry Writing Month 2015 #26)   Leave a comment

Half minute haiku:
When you need a poem done,
And need it done now.

Gaming All Day (National Poetry Writing Month 2015 # 25)   Leave a comment

Some say spending all day with a game
Is a colossal waste of time, and is extremely lame.
But when you need to refresh you mind
A better alternative would be very hard to find.

World (National Poetry Writing Month 2015 #24)   Leave a comment

The world is full of vitriolic hate
Spewing out onto our plate.
But there’s never enough to sate
The warmongering bloodlust,
The drive to turn all things to dust,
The will to watch the world combust.

I don’t know the way to save the world.
How to stop the bombs from being hurled.
To stop the flags from being unfurled.
And so they march friend against friend.
Now everyone is broken; no one would bend.
And through their actions, comes the world’s end.
