Words that punch you in the stomach

“We need to talk
..But not now.”

Stop smiling at me like that

You’re all up in me
I can’t stay
But going isn’t an option either
When I decide to leave
You pull me back
When I decide to stay
You push me away

While you’re not pushing or pulling
You just sit there and let it happen
You’re in control of the strings
Attached to me
And you don’t even realize it

What is this trap you’ve caught me in?

Be careful what you cook, Julius

The anger fills me up
The empty spaces are no longer empty
The missed parts are no longer empty
The broken pieces are no longer empty
As it fills me up I can feel everything in me changing

Changing in anger and hate
Yet I’m calm

Boiling and boiling and boiling
Can you give me something to cover this up?
Before I overcook
Ruin the stove
And we don’t want the stove ruined, now do we?

The lid is removed on purpose
But if you remove the lid
You have to understand that it gets messy
Who is going to clean up the mess?

It’s not me, as I am not me

Mathematically defined surface

Black hole sees
Black hole claims
Black hole absorbs
And black hole eats

No one can escape it
Nothing can escape it

Nothing can escape the power of the big destroyer
No one can influence its eternal hunger for more

It seeks and eats
It doesn’t discriminate
It doesn’t care about your history
It doesn’t care about your knowledge
It doesn’t care about your goals
It doesn’t care about your personality
It doesn’t care about your existence
It seeks and eats

But what if escaping is not the main purpose?
And how do I send the invite?

Let’s have dinner with the winner of all sinners

The dark room

Gasping in my ear
I can feel your heat
I can feel your heart
I can feel you sweating

Staring in your eyes
You staring back
By now you can hear the blood rushing through my veins
Your finger tips on my back
Slowly moving down my spine

Barely touching me
More gasping
Like two becoming one

Your face touches mine
Cheek to cheek
Nose to cheek
Lips to cheek
Lips to lips

Can’t hold myself any longer
Bite your bottom lip
While I look at you
You can read my eyes

And I can read yours

The lion awakens

The inner me wants to escape
I can feel it
The pressure against my body
The spirit is getting bigger than the packaging

Can I control it?
Should I control it?
Do I want to control it?

How long can I stop me from me?

I need your face smashed on the ground

Just when
I think I got rid of you
You jump right back

If this was a a game of bungee jumping
And you jumped back again
I’d cut your rope

With no regrets at all
You’d make the final fall
