I'll settle with this

There's ten questions,

 but answers don't exist

And out of all the worlds i've lived in,

 I'll settle with this.

The sun and stars are beautiful, 

But not the suns I'll see soon

In broken dreams and memories, 

I'm full of you.

I float above the surface, 

Feeling down and done

But why wash beauty with sadness

In a life that's just begun?

The hardest thing is acceptance, 

Then comes a startling peace

In nights I sit in my room 

Feeling robbed of sleep

Drowning in worlds of water

That never felt real to them

I hear things like voices far away

Over and over again

Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over

It took me a while to accept

That reality doesn't exist

But out of all the worlds I've lived in, 

I think i'll settle with this.

The sun and stars are beautiful,

Feeling down and done

The hardest thing is acceptance, 
Then comes a startling peace
In nights I sit in my room 
Feeling robbed of sleep
Drowning in worlds of water

Over and over again
Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over
It took me a while to accept
That reality doesn't exist

A small dose of insanity

My mind takes me to unfathomable worlds

I drink in the feeling of its embrace

I steer myself away from reality

My brain is my vessel

I shut the world away

But wake up from my nightmares

To discover that they're real.

my issue

I've never done drugs

But I'm addicted to you

And that's bad enough.

wasted years

Do you remember how it felt to exist?

Wasn't it lovely?

Did you thank God for every breath you took?

I know, neither did I. 

But you never miss it till it's gone.

Mist

I like the feeling of this moment. 

   the fog covers the tops of the trees

So they seem to fade into the sky.

the streetlights spread hazy mist

a small layer of rain lays on the almost-empty parking lot

  misting over my own feelings of haziness

And making everything seem unreal.

Stupidity

I'm wrong too often;

When I'm right (which is rarely)

I celebrate it.

some sort of slam poem

I'm tired of trying, 

I'm sick of this crying, 

With every breath I'm dying

Because of your lying. 

I'm always denying, 

Fall when I'm flying, 

Whispering, sighing, 

I waste time that I'm buying.

Should

Love isn't supposed to look like this

It's supposed to be reciprocated 

With each person giving 

Equal amounts. 

But we don't live in a perfect world,

Do we?

Neptune.

My cat's personality is blue

Like a flowing sea

I feel it every time he rubs up against my face

I drink in his joy

Blue, like Neptune (his name)

The last planet

Farthest from the sun

Alone,

Yet

Not

Lonely.

Everyone else sees my cat as gray and white, 

Like an old colorless movie. 

Well, looks aren't everything.
