Through the Migraine Fog: Open Mic Mashup

you were the first one to ever look at me/ the sorrows washed away like a crown of wisdom/ you were hospital bound/ and how am i meant to move in an orbit 5 times too fast/ and instead of sleep, i’m thinking about how to tell you i love you without you noticing/ i scavenged a cereal box for you in 3rd grade/ time is a b**ch and she’s beautiful/ the trick to gaslighting is getting people to believe they remember/ my mother used my adhd against me/ in the shade you can barely see/ we’ve been neglected for too long/ and break at a touch/ the smell of rot takes over/ and all the plants have died/ and i was raised around the screams/ i was created by the pull of a trigger/ but you’re not bleeding so you’re fine/ your anger is a few sizes too big/ i made your demons my own/ absorbing your anger/ a child who reminds you of yourself/ she never thought your heart would give out before yours/ what made you change a year before you’d be gone forever/ i want to be held like a grudge/ and make you feel alone in a good way/ like the motherly hug the night gives/ to haunt you/ like black tendrils/ from the one who paid the debt/ beautiful, but broken/ a burial/ and i am the whole damn museum/ and this is for the kids who want to go home and those who fear it/ for the kids stuck in their own heads and the kids stuck in everyone else’s/ my screams break a thousand silent treatments/ the enneagram test calls me ghost and i’m so tired of mourning people who are here/ this kind of leaving doesn’t teach you to build a home/ so write a love letter instead/ if the world is caving in around you, pull out a pen instead/ there was a time, a moment that you loved being alive/ and these moments can’t stop thinking of you

NEXT OPEN MIC IS 10.21- MARK YOUR CALENDARS, YOU BEAUTIFUL & WEIRD & DEEPLY ALIVE HUMANS
