I like to hide my problems, within other problems. I give it all away though

I’m not afraid to do what I want to.

Add my confidence and you cannot ignore

I will continue to say what I want to.

Cause that’s what a voice is for.

 

 

My collection of rarities has finally reached a dozen!

My whole life devoted to what my heart can’t stop loving.

To keep alive what time’s forgotten

One life of obsession until I got them

But what will happen when it all is over?

A century long search for collective closure

I will gaze upon my prizes, each one a splendid view

And if you ask me what is happiness

All I will do is point one to you

 

For five months I’ve been pretending

That all my life was fair

That all my sides were equal

Like a perfectly measured square

Yet underneath my surface

Pain and anguish have taken root

I think about it a hundred times day

The moment she said “we’re through!”

It’s been months since we were divided

By the way that’s what poems are for

To let my problems out

So I can get to work on more
