For My Birthday

FREE WRITING

For my birthday,
buy me a lifetime’s supply of dreams
for my birthday,
buy me some passion and buy me success
for my birthday,
buy me an incineration plant to burn myself in
and also, for my birthday,
buy me. I’m worthless. Really.
for my birthday, 
buy me some love and happiness, and that would be enough
for my birthday,
let me buy you for a day,
for my birthday,
let me buy your love, if you may

you exist beyond our doors in the night of the city

PROMPT: Solidarity

We shut our doors 
the slam echoes through the city
like your fears echo through me.
in these times of the night
it is cold, but you and I are warm.
i cannot see you except in my dreams.

when i do see you in my dreams,
you tell me to shut my door
and you tell me to stay warm.
but the only warmth i feel are the lights of the city,
illuminating the empty atmosphere at night
and...

harsh breeze, a biting frost, soft snow.
a longing and a yearning for warmth yet warmth

like i drop my responsibilities
halting, shallow breathing, visible breaths of air,
out in and in out again,
just me and myself on the snow,
naked to the night sky and drifting snowflakes
that...

freedom, among other things

FREE WRITING

my heart is free
and so is yours
let’s look to the same sky
and open our doors

let’s not look at the chiseled wall
worn down from our gaze
and instead look at the wind
and stand unfazed, unafraid

our ears start ringing
and the pounding in our head gets louder
but it’s a good kind of pain; 
the kind that we’re meant to shoulder

we run towards the light
we rise even with weak
knees, our hearts are...

VERSE 1
when i cry
i create torrents of rain
people’s lives, slain

in a neverending echo
my voice cracks
leaving behind countless deaths

CHORUS
when will my words match
what i want to say
it’s like my own mind
is fading away
let me scream
in this lonely world
if the words ever come one day

VERSE 2
you’re able to smile
because i’m here and giving
the life you’re living

you’re able to cry
because i’m here and...
