Poem – “Music Distraction”

You say when I’m depressed, I just listen to music
Sounds and frequencies are my addiction and I abuse it
How should I explain this? I like the melodies and cadence
Chords, verses, the chorus, and notation
This is facts, it’s a bunch of distraction
Like damn…
I hope you understand

Poem – “Modest Apology”

I thought about the explanations you said the other day
And they just stuck with me until the next and another day
This is a modest apology to the girls who I fell out with
To the other girls who I didn’t have the guts to go out with
Not seeing the best version of me, always invested in being perfect
Going through the motions without goals or a purpose
Never letting go or forgiving myself
My expectations were too high, I was reaching for the top shelf
To my friends who told me I had a gift with the pen
And the fork on the roads I didn’t take and instead, took dead ends
I’m truly sorry, I mean it!

Poem – “Thank You, Miss”

Not gonna front today now
But I think of you when ’80s music plays loud
Spotify got me in a different mindset
Back in 2010, a time I won’t forget
Ironically, the time that we met
I was in a declining mood, but you lifted it
So thank you, miss, I appreciate it
Believe that I mean it

Poem – “I Can’t Sleep” – Inspired by ‘Alice in Wonderland’

“It’s 4 AM and I can’t sleep
And when I can’t sleep, I don’t dream
And when I don’t dream, I lose my mind
And when I lose my mind, I’m at a loss for time
Out of the window, I stare at the moon
And question if it’s the same moon you stare at, too
Insomnia makes my mind all pensive and antsy
While I view through the looking glass until I can’t see
I glance at the girl of my dreams, at least I believe it’s her
But she disappears and turns invisible like Chesire
I have to add that I’m becoming as mad as a hatter
Scattered thoughts on the ground and I attempt to gather
I’m wandering with Alice in a land full of wonder
Going down a rabbit hole while I wish for slumber
Going down a hole, another
Going down a hole, another
This must be a dream within a dream
Inception got me believing
They say I’m woke, but no
I’m still sleeping… Zzzzz”

Poem – “Expensive Tastes”

“There’s no debate, you’ve got expensive tastes
I just wait until my pensive thoughts elevate
To better times, so I can deliver cohesive lines
To further my underlying advances ’til she is mine
Not like that she’s a game prize, rather she’s the apple of my eye
The core reason why I wake up smiling in the morning
My favorite place on Earth? Why, it’s close by you, of course!”
