You have to approve yourself first
But that is not complete enough.
Forgiving yourself is the key.

I should have helped more neighbors.
I should have visited my mother more often.
I should have not wasted so many days at the TV set.

My wish - unrequited love
Oh, how I wish I could not feel this way.

How I wish I could close my eyes at once and wake up to no dismay.

If only minds could be read;
If only souls could be bared;

If only you knew how much...Read More

Giggle them thighs

The Vagrant
See the cogs cranking above you?
Predetermined moves, pre-programmed cues -
You think you chose your status quo?
Look down beneath your shoes!
The red carpet's trodden brown,
Mass-produced, regime-induced,
Samples shred after use,
And forgotten, tossed asunder -
makes one wonder has true consciousness
simply gone under?
That scent...Read More

In which way Imagination excels Knowledge
Imagination is the natural ability with which every human being is endowed.
Therefore, it is conceivable to say that everything will become allowed 
by completely envisioning the unforeseen-yet things, that are going to be wowed, 
while the barrier of the impossible,...Read More

Musings of a Victim
Let's play a game, shall we?
It's a fun little number I like to call
"Do I miss you because I love you,
or because you're my brain's scar tissue?"

Let's review the facts, shall we?
You're a spoiled NEET who took pleasure from my...Read More

I ll Wait Forever
How many boyfriends have you been through
While I stood by your side wishing you were
Mine the whole time, how many times have I
Helped you pick up the pieces of a broken
Heart, break up after break up, you say I can't

That Kind of Love
Love is not one-quarter note
It's a violin concerto set on fire 
Played to a table for two
It’s not half-assed
Or half-baked
It’s the 3 inches thick 
finger licking frosting
with a cherry on top of my cake
It's full tilt 
Take a chance

Creatures of the Dark
The creatures come out in the dark.
One after the other,
They drag their fat bodies,
In front of the moonlight,
That shimmers with dull
One after the other,
They display their darkness.
They wiggle and crawl,
And bend over backwards,
Clawing at the walls,
And scaling the ceiling.
Sometimes there...Read More

Words from a paintbrush
Do mental somersaults and backflips to establish a message
Invisible thoughts of madness rebuilt no blemish the wreckage
And this impression of subconscious stability holds many debts 
So aggressions like monstrous in a degree to pay respects

Removing pain built partitions without the...Read More

Sunshine After The Rain

To straighten out everything in my mind

Special Girl

There is this Special Girl,
She makes my head twirl,

my uncle was married
before he met her
sure it was to his first cousin

My brother was trying to help her

girl you claim to be my friend,
