Why Can't I Trip?


Blind me for

Your belly talk

And starvation settles

And finds your mind

How time

Just pries

Homeful settings

Awake in your mind

Bound for triumph?

Not this time

I've cried

so crime

Is just a drop away

Upon my tongue

To fade away

An embellishment

To form way

Crush my heart

And walk away

Opportunities keep banging on my door

I never answer anymore

I'm hurt

I failed the try
