Kind of a mixed bag of every emotions who paints words like he's putting on armor.

A Bouquet for my Actress (Spoken Piece)

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2020

Rose

I want to be your ex-boyfriend's understudy, 
My mother was an actress all through high school
So believe me,
I know how weird that sounds. 

I want to be your ex-boyfriend's understudy 
Because when I watch him,
I make notes, 
About the way your face can hate what he says
Even though you love his gifts,
Like his smile, 
Or the way his arms wrap you in,
Like the warmth of hot chocolate,
After a day spent crying with...

Just Breathe

FREE WRITING

There are no times of peace, I've learned.
Only places.
Only places where violence and confusion isn't what we've learned to accept.
I've learned that sometimes I just have to breathe and concentrate on what's real,

Inhale violence,
Pain,
Hate,

Exhale confusion,
Pain,
Anger.

The dust doesn't settle in my mind.
It can't,
and with every breath it whirlwinds around,
restlessly.
It enters the system,
and multiplies.
It leaves only in rare moments where the only thing I can do. ...

I feel gross

PROMPT: Flashlight

I am the mountain, 
I welcome tourists to set fires on my land, 
then leave without warning or without reason,
I can't risk a search party,
Of the burns on my body,
And scars on my back.

I am like an onion,
I have many layers, 
But I have this uncanny ability to draw tears
down cheeks
to those I care about,
You can't cut me and stay too long,

I am a pine tree, 
One that invites you to...

You are beautiful... (2 voice)

(Her)
I'm cross legged,
My thumbs are kinda twitchy;
each one doing their own thing.

(Him)
I keep trying to meet her eyes,
Those graceful beautiful eyes,
Have gone cold on me,
She's staring at the floor.

(Both)
I'm finding it hard to breathe.

(Her)
For the first time in this connection
I could call love,
I feel awkward.
                                             
(Both)                           
Something's out of place     ...

You are never fine (Spoken Piece)

FREE WRITING

If you ever say to me:
"I am fine"
I will believe that you are half-dead inside.

You are never fine,
I am never fine,
Instead we are both neglecting
whatever raw emotions we truly feel
And really what's so different,
between neglecting ourselves,
neglecting our feelings,
And being half dead?

You are not fine.
We aren't learning basic emotions,
Like we're in preschool learning colors,
We are human,
and like it or not,
We 
Feel 
Everything.

"I am" and...
