Pretense

from this hatred and negativity my skin crawls onto the floor i am broken but not shattered i wont let this depleted hope be the death of me i will rise back from nothing with full wind in my sails these coasts will never skip these hollow eyes this fragrance of life will find refuge in these nostrils i put my heart up one more time its better there than in my stomach it has been beaten to almost nothing filled with incapacitating lies just open your eyes thats what this world tries to tell me just open your eyes why cant you just see the beauty they say i cant handle the responsibility i cant swing it in this reality the one that they have chosen not the same that we were born into its right here for the taking but through this neglect comes the heartbreak all thats left is to ask questions do you even own a mirror i see this earth on its wedding day nothing short of inspirational my breath becomes the wind my lungs cant find a use anymore. Joseph B. Garcia
