Savages of Society

We pretend not to care

We pretend not to feel

We pretend that we are savages

We weren’t born to be this way

Society taught us not to love




I tried my best to stay away

To put up a shield

To guard my heart

How foolish to think I could hold you off

Those eyes

That mouth

This touch

The shield is down

The white flag is up

My heart no longer is guarded

It’s all yours

To keep

I surrender




If I could give you a whole constellation, I would

But this star will have to do

If I could put into words how much you mean to me, it still wouldn’t be enough

For you were like a shooting star, across a black night sky

Out of nowhere, you appeared, igniting light all around me

Since, I’ve been in a trance and I wish to never return

I found that your light is what I needed most


Prose: Look in the Mirror

I will never again apologize for my disorder.  I’ll be damned if I ever surround myself around people who prefer to put the blame on me rather than their own misinformed judgement.
