Shoulder

29 Sep

It’s easier to fall
and harder to stand.

It’s easier to cry
and harder to laugh,

And I don’t know how,
I don’t know why

But you’re the light on my shoulder
When I’m tired

It’s easier to run
and harder to be still

It’s easier to think
and harder to feel,

And I don’t know how,
I don’t know why

But you’re the light on my shoulder
When I’m tired

It’s easier to hide
and harder to trust

It’s easier to hate
and harder to love

And I don’t know how,
I don’t know anything

But you’re the temper in my voice
When I sing….

Fuck Was I

28 Sep

Love grows in me like a tumor,
A parasite bent on devouring its host.

I’m developing my sense of humor,
Till I can laugh at my heart between your teeth,
Till I can laugh at my face beneath your feet.

Skillet on the stove is such a temptation,
Maybe I’ll be the lucky one that doesn’t get burned.

What the fuck was I thinking?

Love plows through me like a dozer,
I’ve got more give than a bale of hay,
And there’s always a big mess left over.
What did you do?
What did you say?

Skillet on the stove is such a temptation,
Maybe I’ll be the special one that doesn’t get burned.

What the fuck was I thinking?

Love tears me up like a demon.
Opens the wounds and then fills them with lead,
And I’m having some trouble just breathing.

If we weren’t such good friends I think that I’d hate you.
If we weren’t such good friends I’d wish you were dead

This is,

So embarrassing

I’m this awkward and uncomfortable thing,
And I’m running out of places to hide in,

I’m running out of places to hide in…

Mi Casa – In the Style of Notorious

28 Sep

I seen her in the club who she rappin’ to?
That’s my nigga D,
damn he got G!
Now she fuckin’ him and fuckin’ me, see?

Now I play her far cause Phil is above par,
she still sweatin’ me hard cause I’m a rap star
I be cruisin’ up the road I be passin’ her,
pimpin’ hard with a female passenger
and the only time I call to hang
is when me and D are blunted up scheming on a gangbang 🙂
she shoulda used her intuition
then she wouldn’t be classified in that position!

Listen:
She sayin I dissed her
coz I’m fuckin her sister
but she started that fuckin family,
she fucked ma man D
so why she mad at me?
Plus your sister look better than you
give head better than you
pussy get wetter than you
so break the fuck out like a rash
Glad I aint spend no cash to hit your nasty ass…!

You Could Be Happy

28 Sep

You could be happy,
and I won’t know
But you weren’t happy,
the day I watched you go

And all the things that I wished I had not said
Are played on loops ’till it’s madness in my head…

Is it too late
to remind you how we were?
But not our last days of silence,
screaming,
blur

Most of what I remember
makes me sure
I should have stopped you from walking
out the door…

You could be happy,
I hope you are
You made me happier
than I’d been by far

Somehow everything I own smells of you
And for the tiniest moment it’s all not true…

Do the things that you always wanted to
Without me there to hold you back,
don’t think, just do
More than anything I want to see you go
Take a glorious bite out of the whole world.

CIGARETTE BREAK by Adelaide Adelle

23 Sep

Time for a cigarette break
Light up these words and let me blow their truth to your lungs
Laying a freeing cancer
Coz I’m Sick of the healthy illness
so I blow refreshing clouds.

Inhale
Hold it in, then exhale
Not my fumes
But those that had you consumed
With the pursuit
Of a plastic reality

Time for a cigarette break
Listen to the words, music, distorted melody
Sad words pasted on a happy tune

I spit out the prophecy not knowing the next line
It’s a light bulb in the shade of my saliva

My feet stomp in rhythm to the beat
My tears, to what I speak
The speech tells the truth
But the melody doesn’t listen
It plays on a faster tempo, higher volume
But the voice remains thunderous and unwavering
Bleeding emotion that corrodes the tune

And then it stops.

Time for a cigarette break
Cancerous we are, now we break off
The words fall off the music sheet
Hit the ground, a truthful squeak
A liberated diction
Dancing to a jingle you can’t hear but feel

An orchestra of alphabets in a misplaced order
A carefree culture
Where what you feel is what you sing

Cigarette drops
Foot stomps
Return to the plastic.
“A high off life is only achieved when you take a break off being what everyone else wants! Dare to be different. Dare to be YOU! “- Loads of Love, Adelle
