Remember
Sometimes honesty is Harsh and harsh is cruel and when you’re honest it may
          create a duel

I wanted new from the same old

We were gluttons
Feeling undeserving of anything other than less
We were healers
Feeling assigned to correct
Caution my friend
Falling in love with a spiritual person
Means they will let you go

Be prepared to be moved on from

Listen,
Silence is better than static

What you deserve is so much more beautiful than what you’ve accepted

Heaven repeated.

You’re a badass bitch with an attitude and halo

Don’t be afraid to open the door

No, that one

This time

I know love and am disastrous women
Whose feet weren’t made for glass slippers

Whose feet dance away from mind trippers

How disastrous
Chaotic entanglement terminated contract

Sorry I don’t speak defeated

They want it they just don’t respect it

Sorry bullshit I don’t eat it
Or feed it.
I’m dangerous to the dangerous when I sense it

Like when

I fell in love with the wrong man and he knew it

Screw it I blew it plunged my stinger through it

I can’t connect if your power’s not on

Love me enough to soften me

I am not your escape hatch
Not at my age my mentality my priority level

I’m not a match

To crap.

Yack.

They say the best things in life are free

You nearly cost me everything

The air others need could kill you

I stopped hating myself when I stopped loving you

I’ve got to stop wanting the best for the worst people.

I blow on dandelions from church steeples

Making wishes for health and peace
For all people

Moved on from.
