Message from Writer

"If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal- that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself." -Thoreau

Like vomit on carpet
Like a parasite in my mind
Festering in quelling knots
You eat away at what tastes best
And there you leave behind a mess

I guess I can clean this one too
For tears are the best cleaning fluid
The best I have to offer
but I can’t stock the shelves with it
And give it to the public

You’re an illness
You’re incurable
You make me sick
Beg for forgiveness
Or take your head to a brick

My head grows heavy
With every pound you choose to hold
And my body is growing wary
With every lie you ever told
To cover it up
To keep it sealed
Airtight, tightlipped

Funny I thought you’d convince me too
But instead of me growing with time
Time is growing upon me
Waves of an endless thrashing sea
Ware down my little island of safety



 
Did I intend on this sounding like a rap? NO, but that's all I can think of now haha. And wow, quarantine/lockdown has been trying so hard to get me to write emotional poetry, which I can't stand to write but I felt it was needed, so here.

    I love every line of this! especially this one "My head grows heavy
    With every pound you choose to hold
    And my body is growing wary
    With every lie you ever told"

    Ooooh this piece is interesting and really meaningful! Though, I'm still a little confused on who "You" is supposed to be.
    I haven't met you on WtW yet, so here's a short introduction: I'm Huba Huba (yup weird username right?) and I also play the piano too!
