1.

Oh child now that you’re older
Where’s your daydreaming led
Far from the sheep in containment
Next to a twitching insect

But won’t my thoughts if shared and flossed
Cataract these eyes, cataract these eyes
I trimmed the fat, where did I go to?
I went to my head, I went to my bed
And I stayed there instead
Of lying all these white dreams aside
Cause I know one day I’ll die
What if I decide
Will I ever find

My parents they’re freezing and worried
They hope for the first day of spring
With staccatoed curtains flowing wide
My friends anticipate the same

But then their faces line the sky
And I cannot hide, I cannot hide
And to these effervescent dreams
That a jaded heart still stay the same
As a place where I watch you grow
While my breathing subsides
Cause I know one day I’ll die
What if I decide
Will I ever find

2.

Sleepy tides wash over
Slipping between our thighs
Oh that peachy face bright as peacock eyes

Lying in your fountain
Will I come and play
And ingest this tangerine enflamed

Where we’ll lose the time
Where our tongues will catch
Rippled waves like vibrating flesh

But I must admit
I’m a bit afraid
But if it’s fake why am I abstaining

Don’t leave me sore
Keep the door closed
I shake at your touch
Alls I want is your breath and your touch

3.

I’m fine but barely breathing on my own
I’ve tried to reach for your hands in the cold
Why do I always fall in love, dare I dream
Clutching every lush thought from my sleep

Wrapped with ease but your love is steep
Your hearts a little thing that needs to breathe
But I do not know you well, I can never tell

Fashions past like withering bluebells
And I’ve been out of the city for awhile
But I want you, I want your heart to bloom, dare I leap?
Or stutter where the city makes new friends

Will my skin change or stay this shade?
Our hearts are little things that can’t be tamed
But I do not know me well, you can never tell

4.

How can I handle it all?
Handle it all on my time
How will I hide all these fears
Hide all these fears that incline

And too bad
I haven’t quite found
Haven’t quite found my own feet

In here
My heart should lie
My heart should lie but it can’t

Floating in a daze
I feel that my love will go to waste
And just
And just wilt away

Dear where do I go
Where do I go when I fail
In what way, will I saw
Will I saw off my arms

And if I fuck it all up
Fuck it all up till its sore
If I bite my tongue
Will I sit tight or explode

This head rush will contain
Do you think my heart will never change
And just
And just wilt away

7.

Smoke your weed
Pinch your fat
Take your meds
It's fine, be sad
But know you'll live another day
With the scars on your face

Your toes of jade
Will always pinch
So keep your head
Where you can't sing
Mind their space
And contemplate
With your shadow that's ingrained

And sure you feel
Don't tip your scales
It ain't your place
To clip your nails
Cause you were born
With a diamond crown
Sprouting from your mouth
Sprouting from your town
Sprouting from your waist
Lopsidedly arranged

If you fail
To breathe in check
Contain your fear
Just dial it back
Cause you live a privileged life
With your mozzarella spine
Cause you live a privileged life
From the moment you arrived

8.

Every year its just the same
You’re looking more like you’re insane
Your mind’s been playing tricks on what you see

All those bodies want to hide
The screen’s where they mark their divides
The feeling that they’re laughing when you leave

Why’d you have to get that way
Your childish eyes were never phased
But now your breath is barely keeping pace

Don’t break my fall
I don't want to live

I walked the path where we once sat
The cops were looking through our bags
But did they ever find out where we hid

Validate the violent swirls
And waterfalls that flood the earth
Theres lesions on my heart and I can’t leap

9.

On the cusp of a friend
I won’t keep you in my bed
I will flaunt you around
Such a lovely sound

Dense boreal, crowded trees
You’re a dew drop on a leaf
We can sleep all day inside
You’re the stranger kind

And I swear that your eyes
Keep your flora soft in thyme
As a sign, you’re alive
And competing for the prize

Water sparkles down your sunburned cheeks
A soft infusion from our brines
Memories corduroyed in funny smells
And twisted in our childish minds

And we tear both our jeans
Simultaneously
We don’t care, we don’t blink
But we breathe in sync

Watch our skin sweep the floor
Exponentially explored
Watch me twist my soft tongue
As your pink lips hum

Left behind

10.

I had a rickety heart here
I had a song on my lips
Every time I'm around you
My heart skips

I saw a shrink in a castle
Told me that I was a kid
But with every church I abandon
My heart skips

The internet taught me like chance would
Planting these warts on my tongue
Christened, but wafting in value
My heart shuns

You were the friend that I once knew
You were the song that I sung
But every time I’m around you
My heart shuns

The smokes got me seeking a casket
Hiding the signs that I’m bare
Every time I reject them
I don’t care

I’m standing atop on the ceiling
You’re grabbing my head by its hair
Cause every day that we're living
Do you care?

11.

Hold and sway your crowded phones as pages written bold
In cable wire crackling neath the fatalistic hold
And called to arms, my ghosts and gods, they're leaving for their homes
But don't you doubt a single soul to leave their presence known

And I will raise our fallen knees as soldiers running through the trees
With silent guns and berries neath their feet
And I will leave my ghost in there to flounder in our founder's lair
Your panicked fish are leaving for the air

To your arms I'll curve my planes, hit cowards as they shout
As havens ringing around your heart light candles burning out
And flood the gates that leave your mouth in wondrous bursts of speed
Buzzing and ringing and singing and kicking around my tattered feet

And as we rise our little hearts will leave upon a shopping cart
And flip gallantly into the sun
These flowers for living life in myth will lose their lustre as they kiss
Their lovers masked in barcodes as they hum

These highway fakes in cushy hell, their limbs immersed in casts
Wetting burned kaleidoscopes as if their mother's passed
And they're not once but twice inscribed in fabrics barely sewn
The stitching's shot their ample chance at one day getting home

As they walk their patterns ride, they mimic television's eyes
As all their shady artifacts inscribe
And I am blistered neath their palms, clutching tight my broken arms
But all their shady artifacts have gone
