Because it’s only once I say my wedding vows.

and hope he's wrong

than the rock that you've lived under
and your mental disorder
you and your mind in your man-made borders

To be a Saint

I doesn’t take chocolate;
I eat syllables.

The I was told to spit a haiku;
No,I forgot it was a mono.
Because I loved chewing sonnets.

Bite your tongue to a ballade,
Remember others...Read More

You can go round in circles,
Defining being loving.

Disconnect all reality
Live by virtue 
In totality
Remain true

	Guided by this energy
	Consuming you 
	Like an allergy
	Don't know what to do

		What is anything worth
		Lies and deceit 
		Not a part of Earth
		Feeling defeat

			Yet still believing
			If I die young
			Better start achieving
			Bite your tongue

				Reckless abandonment

That's almost as good as sex, heard someone say
Bite your tongue, you silly, there's absolutely no way
Sex sits at the top
How could you forgot
The steam you emit from your ears screaming “Mayday!”
