Tokyo 

I just need to accept that I’m a monster 

Causing terror 

Stomping around 

Destroying everything that I touch 

That’s what the people below me see

I’m just trying to understand me

So I’m curious about things 

I’m trying to figure it all out 

It’s not my fault that when I sneeze 

Fire comes out my snout

I’m sorry for the calamity 

I’ll head back into the sea 

For Her

Transparency was the word used
But when it comes to the truth 
Why would you pick and choose?
Makes me wonder
Did everything reach the table?

I wonder if he told her
That behind her back
He bonded with her friend 
She’d smile in her face during the day
Joining in in the games we played
Then find her way into his bed at night 
He had to have told her… 
Right? 

Did he tell her about 
The girl who goes to her church
The one that bakes
She had the icing he needed
He had his cake and ate it too
He told her 
He just had to

Did he tell her about the sleepover? 
Waking up and kissing another in his bed
Did he mention she kept coming back?
Did it slip his mind?
It must have been that…

I wonder 
Did he forget to mention
Falling in love? 
Did he speak of
Trying to drown his feelings 
The vodka instead 
Leaving him unable to drive
Did he tell her where he slept? 
Tell me it’s not another tidbit kept

Did he talk about the forbidden place? 
Where he knew he shouldn’t be?
He couldn’t help but get more
Of the one who helped
Break her heart before
Maybe he couldn’t confirm her fears
So some things he didn’t share

Did he explain things like
When she couldn’t get him at night
Where exactly he was
And what he was doing with who
He should have
If he really wanted 
To be true…

I still wonder if he told her 
Or was it all hid
I guess he doesn’t have to tell her anymore 
Because…
I just did…
Shh…
No secrets

Serial

Why do some men feel

That it’s ok to break hearts?

Is the craving for control so strong 

That they don’t realize what they’re doing

Is completely wrong?

Breaking down their partners 

To the brink 

Edging on self harm and self hate 

To the point where 

They’re too weak to walk away 

So they stay

Because no one loves them

They’re crazy

They’ll never find anyone else

At least… 

That’s what they’re told
