Seven/too good to say goodbye/Song Series

I can’t believe you don’t

see it, I can’t believe

you don’t care; what was the

point of these last few months?

what was the point of all

the poetry, the talks

we had in the middle

of the night, did you care

at all then? Or was it

just an elaborate

game, a foolish pastime?

Don’t you see, what we have

is too good to leave in

in the past, it’s too good

to say goodbye- yet here

we are. You, leaving me

behind without even

an explanation; I

guess I’m lucky, because

If you don’t know how good

what we have now is, you’ll

probably never know.

I guess I’m lucky, that

you were fickle and rude,

I guess you are not too

good to say goodbye to.

A Change Is Gonna Come (Song Series) 

​A change is gonna come. 

Itll be just a rustle at first, just

a whisper of something far greater,

and then it’ll billow, billow into 

the something far bigger than

someone like me l, or you), but

none of us will mind, because

a change is gonna come, and

we’ll be standing here (still

young, still rebellious) and,

we’ll be waiting for it.

Ship To Wreck (Song Series)

​I’ve been stuck in this 

quicksand for 

a while now, and

ever so slowly

I’m sinking. 

Sinking, like a boat 

with holes

in its hull; water is 

rushing in and there is 

nothing I 

can do to stop it, nothing

I can do 

to stop this blue 

sky from folding 

and 

enveloping me. 

I was made to wreck.

I was made to 

slowly shatter like a 

crystal lake, made

to ruin

everything,

made to self destruct.

There is nothing

I can do to 

stop the moon from 

mocking me, to

stop the

sun from glaring 

at me- to

stop you from

coming too 

close;

I was made to wreck.

Thinking About You (Song Series)

You occupy my 

thoughts more frequently these days;

But I don’t mind much.

I think about you 

in clouds and stars- you flow through

my head like a storm.

I don’t mind it much.

I don’t mind thinking about

your hands holding mine.

And I don’t mind you

punctuating my thoughts; it’s 

like roses blooming.

Lately, I’ve been caught 

up in my head more often.

But I don’t mind much.
