The poem(s) are below...


people talk

Lying on the floor
Of the Cold tile
With a closed door
All the while


Why would you hit somebody so low?
How did you even reach me?
If I'm so mentally slow 
Why even bother with me?

People talk 
People talk
such an interesting subject
And so easy to knock 
So easy to knock
down down down 

"Not good enough for him"
Let's try something new.
"How sad, how grim
It must be to be you"

Where's your original mind?
I've heard it all before.
Something so light
Shouldn't hurt my core 

Can I board the plane yet?
Can I board the plane yet? 

If I'm so like dirt
Why even look my way?
