Convenience Store.

A few years ago, every time I would walk into a convenient store and be rung out or be served at a restaurant I’d notice that the people working that job were much older and I’d ask myself “Why are these 40 year old men and women working a job that has zero fulfillment?’ Up until I was about 20, I was under that impression that your dreams are everything you needed and as long as you desired something more than anything else, It would just turn out okay. I was naive enough to believe that at 16 and it was a beautiful thing. Continue reading “Convenience Store.”

All the adults around me
Constantly existing in my life
They talk and have grand conversations
Using sophisticated words and phrases
Each sentence as predictable and judgmental
As the next
Just like their lives
Perfectly planned and executed
Like all the rest
Cookie-cutter conformity
I call It.
The talking suits and ties
Pledge to live by it

Strategies for when your heart is broken. (ice cream weather)

Step 1. Cry, cry and cry some more

Step 2. There are no steps

Feel the seemingly impossible moment and pause the world around you. Room upside down. Your head pounding. Your life in the worst crash of its entirety. Or so it seems. And attempt to swallow that huge lump in your throat and let it drop down to your heart. Look around everywhere you go and enjoy being reminded of them at every sight you see.

Look in the mirror. Hate everything that’s looking back. Clench your fist and shatter your now depressing. Self loathing world. The shards fray off into your now thin skin. The sudden rushes of pain don’t phase you. You felt a different level of pain, the day they walked away.

Take a flame and place it onto those Polaroids hung so cliché on those string lights. Instantly regret it the second you can’t go back.

This office chair has the imprint of my body. That’s what I was afraid of.

All these people around me talking as if they have a single clue

of who to be or what to do and rambling about nothing of substance. just big paychecks and stroking their power tripping egos.

No, I won’t say sorry for bumping into you and wrinkling your brand new freshly pressed suit.

But, what I will say is sorry to the people you’ve wronged to get to where you are

and goodbye to the last shred of decency inside of you once upon a time

except with this story, it doesn’t have a happy ending

I’m sorry I missed your sister’s wedding
I’ve missed your calls for months it seems
Don’t realize how mean I can be
Because I can sometimes treat the people
That I love like jewelry
Because I can change my mind each day
I didn’t mean to try you on
I swear.
But I still know your birthday
And that feeling of being
scared of meeting your parents
That night after work

I love writing poetry but this blog needs to be more than that so I’ll be putting out some new ideas hopefully starting tomorrow! If you care, there’s some kinda possibly exciting news in my life.

People tend to not believe movies, not just the story lines but all of it. The events that transpire and emotions the actors portray just are written off as ” Oh that’s a movie, that won’t happen in real life.” As If It’s impossible or unattainable. I’m not one of those people. I’m a firm believer that all those punch drunk emotions you see and feel on the big screen are what life should be.. and what could be.

Binge Drinking

The throbbing headache and nausea
I can endure; I’ve had worse.
Right now I could cry,
Such a raw hope consumed me
As I thought about you, desperate.
It was still dark for me then,
when I needed you. Now it’s day.
It brings a true smirk to my face
To know you are nothing more
Than a night of binge drinking:
A foolish part of my youth,
A consequence of boredom.
I could not hold your liquor,
I vomited all that bile you said to me
in the hedges outside. Don’t fret,
this is not a bad memory, in fact
you might never be a memory at all.
I am well. I will drink better and
Far more dangerous poisons.
I am today, you are only last night.

A letter I’d Never Thought I’d find myself writing.

Dear Ryan,
Tomorrow is June 24th, 2017 and you’ll be turning 22 years old and this is a letter I never thought I’d write. You’re somebody I used to be proud of in every aspect and I have to tell you, you’re not who you’re supposed to be and you’re not where you should be. You had a really bright future.. well honestly, everything about you was bright. Your days weren’t always so dark. Your personality was infectious and you spoke with conviction. Your words weren’t flimsy and didn’t sway with the winds of life.

Rain On My Parade.

It was stormy that day;

There wasn’t much thunder or lightning, mostly just drizzle. A lonely girl slowly walked through the dark brown grass of a large open field clenching tightly onto her textbooks. She wallowed threw the dark puddles without even thinking twice. She didn’t care; she was distraught; she had many other things on her mind.
