    Just one day. That’s all I want. Seriously that’s it. Just one day to fly. To fly among the treetops. To fight the pirates To dance with the Indians To swim with the mermaids And play with the fairies. Just one day. To make believe Play gam...

  • LIES, Lime, and Life

    I said I’d do my best, But I’ve failed near every test. I said I was doing fine, As my grades, they did decline. I said I’d tell the truth, But it doesn’t take a sleuth, To see my life’s a sham. A big lie is all I am. A hy...

  • Falling waitng to fly

    I feel as if I’m floating in a vacuum, an empty space without you. I can not stop from falling. I can, but refuse to reach out. My refuge is an arm’s length. Yet, I push it away. I can not stop from calling. I can but I refuse to shout. Afr...

  • Oh, to be a Fly (Poetry)

    Oh, to be a fly, To be able to get close to you, To attract your attention To bring your hands to me, To have you see me, And follow me with your eyes, If only for a moment, To have you think of me, Whether I am near or far away, Oh, I’d give any...

    I just wanna call you. Because I don’t know where I’m going, But I want to you to come. Let’s fly away in a plane, or flap our arms or fall asleep. All I know is that we can’t stay here. Forget tomorrow. It’s far away̷...
