Walking By

You don’t even glance when you walk by,
neither do I, but what if everything you ever knew was a lie?
Stop feeding me your unemotional lines,
I could write your crap and post it up on a sign.
I’m a different person with every person I meet.
I can see right through your pre-written sheets.
Don’t tell me you know exactly what I’m thinking.
I could look you in the eye without even blinking,
and make you believe that you’re too deceiving.
Did I forget to mention I have no problem leaving?
So stop with your stupid unreliable scripts,
even though I’m the only one that knows it’s nonsense.
I could drop you completely out of my life,
and I wouldn’t even have to think about it twice.
But I won’t ’cause I’m having too much fun with this.
You think that to me we have any significance?
I apologize if I’m sounding a little cold-hearted,
But if I really cared I would have never gotten started.
Little did you know I had this whole thing mapped out.
Don’t take it personally, you’re not my only route.
Sometimes I wish I could feel like most,
but then I remember I’m an emotional ghost.
So don’t worry about me, take care of yourself.
I’m wasting my time keeping you on my shelf.
Stay genuine and perfect like I made you believe.
You got what you deserved and it will finally relieve, the pain.

Walking Wilderness

Walking Wilderness short poem

It crashed like a chandelier my dream. Becoming wet, into unhealing existence. I was expecting a landfall by burst of flames. Grieving for a lost generation, a meaningless exit from the stage of bites and suffering. Can you reverse this

Walking By The Path

Walking By The Path prose poem

Walking by the path, walking by the street I met many people who told me I was sweet. They walked with me a few miles, praising me all the day, We walked through the woods and fields green, talking all

Walking Through The Sea

Walking Through The Sea short poem

When the antagonist speaks with oozing vileness, the glib atrocity is hard to grip. The obvious monstrousness lays unhidden and he walks through the hellish waters walks through a malicious sea. Gravitates towards the unfathomable depth, succumbs to the irresistible

Walking Like A Zombie

Walking Like A Zombie short poem

I walk through the halls and streets like a zombie empty and alone Wandering aimlessly around curious if she knows I exist. “The past is the past,” they say but the pain is still pain, They also say, “The heart
