The Rest Is Bonus


I picked a flower.

It’s all I have at this time.

The rest is bonus.

Trapped


Trapped.

Wanting everything, yet desiring simplicity.
The more you get, the more they want.
With nothing, there’s just authenticity.
But with nothing, you feel like nothing.

When you work hard you get known.
Attacks and Accolades.
Maybe do less and hide.
Lonely and peaceful days.

Wanting the new, yet missing the old.
Change is constant, an unbreakable code.

Love my love. Love.
Love the pain from love. Still love.

Between everything and nothing is something.
Maybe all we need is something.

Confined In My Mind


Confined in my mind.

Let me out, I want to scream.

Cutting my own chains.

Pull me into you.

Blending feelings with flavor.

Pulsating pleasure.

Let Your Star Burn Out


Love with all your heart

but detach your desire.

Let your star burn out.
