Out Of My Mind


Well I came to know you just a week or so ago
And you seemed different than the others but
After you got what you wanted you didn’t want
Me anymore, I should’ve known you were just
Another player…
And I must’ve been OUT OF MY MIND just
Like the last time…I search for love but
Heartbreak is all I ever seem to find. well I
Should’ve seen the signs but a fool is blind
And I must’ve been OUT OF MY MIND…
Well and I’ve been down this road before
You’d think I wouldn’t be as trusting and
Keep repeating the same mistake but
When you’re lonely you’re destined to
Give in to what you want to hear, again
And again even tho’ you know you’re
In for nothing but a broken heart, tears
In the dark…well I’ve been down this
Road before, when will I ever learn
You play with fire you’re bound to get
Burned but I just help myself thinking
This time it’s for sure…
I must’ve been OUT OF MY MIND just
Like all those other times yeah I should
Seen all the signs but a fool for love
Is blind and I must’ve been crazy, crazy
OUT OF MY MIND!

Sold Out

Sold Out short poem

Since I saw you, I’ve had this hope live in me. That everything that isn’t needed be gone. The details of sales papers, shopping carts. The ease of temptation. Standing still. To fill my cart full of things I don’t

From My Journals ‘anxiety’

From My Journals anxiety prose poem

The moon awaits eagerly in the same pedestal it ignited my passion. What lips, my lips have kissed, are long forgotten. The memories easily quickened as a few puddles along the way I voluntarily stepped in. What arms have lain
