    He looked at me like he was about to devour me.
    And just once I wish those eyes were filled with love and not lu$t.
    Just once I want to feel like the things that I want are not a burden.
    Just once, I would like to feel like I am not a burden.
    My needs shouldn't be something I have to bury.
    I just want love.
    And yet the only time I feel loved.
    And seen, is when I'm not myself.
    Who am I anymore?
    I've not been myself for most of my life.
    For the sake of being loved.
    Is it truly what I seek?
    I do just want love.
    I don't want to be a burden.
    But it's too late now.
    I am the thing that they take and take and take.
    I am no longer me.
    My needs are a burden, met with sadness and annoyance.
    I am just figment of what I wish to be.
    Just take me, everyone does.
    It's the only time I'm seen.
    I can't.
    Make it stop.
    This is all I'll ever be.
    Hold me, oh god I just wish you'd hold me.
    The only time I feel loved, is when I'm not myself.
    Take me.
    What's the point of fighting anymore.
    Maybe you'll love me when I'm longer me.
    And I will simply cease to exist.
    For the desire to be seen and loved.
    Goodbye.

    Generation's To Come
    By: Justice Elliott
    Every generation goes through a new type of segregation. Different problems but the same level of responsibility never taken; At least not from the ones who should claim it. The ones in charge have the power to change things, they have it all but still take advantage of the people who work hard to get what they cannot keep. Our pockets are wiped clean, our purity turns to darkness and our hearts harden; its the only way to survive what we deal with in our streets. You may think you run your life, but in reality we're all puppets, controlled by someone from behind the scenes. Its the ugly truth so many rather be blind then see. But we're not blind, all we have to do is open our eyes. We're apart of the problem and its time we stop assisting in their mass genocide. Lets make a plan for all our sakes; we are the 99% which means the odds are in our favour. The 1% cannot take us, its times we show them the monsters they've created. The damage to us is already done, but we can pave a path much better for the generation's to come. Allow our children to be proud of the people they become, give to them what was not given to us. Many regrets but this will not be one.

    You say 'blackout poetry'
    Like there's some other kind

    Een vreemd boeket staat in mijn leefkamer.
    De donkerpaarse zwerm verwerkt niet.
    Dus ik verwijder het niet
    Al is de eetkamer gevuld met vliegen
    Op zoek naar zoete vruchten
    Die hier niet te vinden zijn
    Al is de slaapkamer gevuld met scherven
    Van kopjes die wij wanhopig
    Niet proberen te breken
    Maar we ruimen wel op
    En de bloemen staan ze zo mooi
    Ook al hebben ze geen geur.

    hope is the thing with feathers
    that perches in the soul
    and sings the tune without the words
    and never stops at all

    The fire that burns inside those eyes
    Schorching my heart, engulfing what's inside
    My heart turns to charcoal..
    Along with my soul..
    There isnt much left,
    But it's all for you to own.

    Down where the mermaids
    Pluck and play
    On their twangling harps
    In a sea-green day...

    'Twas Thomas Edison did declare
    That waste is worse than loss
    Yet never thought it fit to pare
    His first name to Tomás

    You Go Girl
    You go girl
    Expression of approval
    You're doing well
    Fellow possessor of ovaries
    You go girl
    Empirico-metaphysical observation
    You and your nails keep on moving
    Through space, time, and Goddess knows what
    You go girl
    Requested action
    Please take that attitude
    Somewhere else honey
    You go girl
    Poetic sentiment
    You decide to walk with mouth open
    Bright color on your lips

    Scratch my heart to find
    The roots of last year’s roses in my breast;

    I imagined my mind knowing better felt
    my viscera quiver. the birds get startled
    into flight though always round-trip.
    it’s good to be home alone not that you would
    if I had anything to do about it but
    we make do. life sucks
    its thumb. you’re right where
    you’re meant to be. who’s to say blankets
    aren’t party dresses or that eyes
    can only wet in one way.
    gloveless in this eventide chill.
    luckily we aren’t parting thickets
    for interstices for clarity.
    I empathise with the trees that bend
    out of light’s way at least till rough
    limbs creep up gently
    against glass they refuse to crack.
    dirty bedroom window remains so. it treasures
    the head that rested on it oil and all pondering
    the ease with which we dance around naked intention.
    show me it’s possible to live and for quite a while
    without flowering a new wound.
    how lovely we are in our natural state.
    taste of raw tongue on my tongue waves
    fragile at our feet. we stay dipped long enough for
    our digits to grow old shrivel without
    fear. something once felt too cruel to endure.
    I would not have chosen to float
    if given the option. but now i’ll swim.

    I don't look at the world the way I once did.
    I use to find words in silent places,
    like the space between two yearning hands,
    or the waiting room of a hospital.
    Lately I only see in black and white,
    lately, I don't find poetry between the lines.
    Lately I find myself becoming more and more unfeeling.

    You can call something home, and still feel
    okay to leave for a while.
    That is why I always return here.

    I don't want to be a flower, I want to be an evergreen
    Don't tell me I must die and come back only in Spring
    I want to breathe in the cold of winter and live in the tears of autumn
    I want to watch cities crumble, and people rebuild what's left
    There are meteors waiting to collide with us,
    this is just the beginning.
    I don't want to be a flower, I want to be an evergreen
    I'm tired of having wilted petals, and tender hands caressing me
    I am sturdy, I hold my own
    I want to constantly renew myself until the rest of the world
    doesn't stand a chance.

    i believe when angels are bored they watch the story of you two coming together on repeat. heaven knows, for her, there is no other place safer than your arms; for her, your leather-jacket breath is paradise enough.

    of course I cried
    of course I tried to run
    of course I’d die for you
    if you asked me to
    none of this means it was love
    all of this means it was love

    When I love, I love like torrential rain – heavy and intense.
    I am too softhearted and hardheaded.
    Don’t treat me like the sun, I am not. I am monsoon.
