These days,

I collect upside down smiles

Posturing and pasted

Carelessly across my face.

Emotionally trapped,

And too discouraged

To occupy my  space.

Meanwhile,

I applaud your accomplishments

And worship the blind

Eye to my own.

Can somebody tell me,

How to name my tune?

Its both serene and
Disturbing when your
Internal fears
Lay in limbo
Cause your own
Choke hold
Won't surrender.

Defeat.

(Maybe) my gift
Is not for you?
Convince me.
And stop being jealous
Of my one on one
Relationship with me.
I just write,
And stay in my lane.
I don't tinker my words
And rarely do I give my
Poetic pieces an oil change.

I write for therapy.

Call me selfish,
But my poetry will
Not speak to you
Live from the pages
Of a book or from
The innards of a
Booming speaker
Or leap from my
Lips to a mic
And whisper recklessly
In your ear.

I write for therapy.

I don't study the greats,
Yet the attraction
Is more than physical.
I write for therapy.
Gradually flickering
Off the Polaroid pictures
Within me.
Some of my ugliest life
Experiences I purge.
And when the ink dries,
Its my relief,
The way I delete,
Please stay calm,
And on your feet
(I'll freak this cliche)
Until I hit repeat.

I write for therapy.
