Random Poem:


Colder then the coldest
harder than a diamond on ice
death like a thousand possibilities
possibility like the one thats not nice
I've been feelin a little
Like a little feeling of death
kissing my neck
Like an old girlfriend freezing to death
I'm like oh, why did you have to come up
I've been alone for so long
and in the beginning it was miserable
But then I took up a passion
And that passion is song
Can you read me like literature
Oh you never had a book?, you are literally poor
Illiterate maybe, like a crackhead from birth
relatable, maybe like a significant curse
I don't know, and I don't really care
you can judge me till the world comes to an end
Cause all I ever do here is pretend
I'm so sad, and I feel alone even though
They say I have a million friends
Can you just back off
And give me some room,
let me breath please and get out my room
I feel like I barely have any in my cocoon
Metamorphisis can you feel me
I feel as if this really
not something real like reality
A manipulation of time and personality
I'm tired, I wanna retire
get fired, come back and get hired
I'm flyer then the flyest around
But the higher I get, the faster I'm down
