Push My Buttons
This is a poem that I wrote a few weeks ago as a way to express a lot of the anger that I had been feeling as of late and express it in a healthy way.
This is a poem that I wrote this afternoon, inspired by rap music that I have been listening to lately, and just reminding myself that I am a talented writer.

This is a poem that I wrote recently as a final goodbye to someone I loved. The last time I was heartbroken I allowed myself to find inspiration from that person for years, and while it is beautiful to find inspiration from those who hurt us and to turn pain into art, I don't want to repeat that pattern of allowing someone to inspire me too much.

Letter from the Ones Who Hurt Me

Slow Demise of Man

You Can Have Me
This is a poem that I wrote recently. I am not entirely sure who the poem is written towards; a lover, God, myself. Perhaps all at once, or a lover who is yet to come.
