Double Standards

All eyes on me The pressure is on Pat on the back Respect is earned Juggle them around the clock Like a revolving door, they’re in and out Women I mean, in case you’re wondering Ladies-man, player, bachelor, what a life The grandeur of being a man All eyes on me They’re watching closely Knife […]

In My Eyes

You see FAULTS, but I see PERFECTION You beat yourself up in DEFEAT, but I see PRIDE You feel LOST, but I see TRIUMPH You feel DEAD, but I see LIFE In my eyes   You are BROKEN inside, but I see STRENGTH You are LONELY, but I see LOVE You cry tears of SADNESS, […]

Heart Up In Flames

Temperature is rising up, it’s 120 degrees, no AC Crack up a window, I’m burning up, solitary confinement This is no ordinary fever I feel it in my chest, it’s my heart Lub-dub-dub, Lub-dub-dub, irregular beats, call the guards Got my heart locked up, for acting up, cardiac arrest It’s too crowded in here, I […]

The Things They Said… and My Replies (Read from top to bottom then in reverse)

“Don’t think about it too much”, they said. It’s so hard to get it off my mind. “It’s not too difficult”. They said. Don’t seem that easy to me. “In time you’ll know”, they said. How long exactly? “You’ll figure it out”, they said. How can you be so sure? “It’s just a phase”, they […]

The Mirror Is My Enemy

Mirror, mirror, on the wall Here we meet again You’ve seen me rise and fall You’ve been the cause of all my pain   Thinking back to all my gloomy days When I turned to you for support You only showed your dirty ways And broke the rope short   In my attempts to feel […]

Shooting Star

Fresh out of bed, she bows down her head A quick glance in the mirror, make her insecure Though she possess qualities such as charm and wit In this world, her qualities never seem to be a good fit   Outside of her window, bullets are firing from souls with hearts as cold as ice […]
