Paper

Poem By Kathryn Cox

I had a clean sheet of paper until i started writing.
Writing on my mind that is not a clean sheet of paper.
My mind is a postcard sent to everyone that listens,
confirming my weaknesses, confirming my emptiness.
Covering it up with paper.
Paper with writing,
paper with different languages,
no one can understand.
Not even myself.
I fear the others, I fear myself, and I fear self-destruction.
I know paper, I see paper, I write-
on paper.

Coffee And A Cigarette

My intuition is slacking,
and my looks are starting to fade.
I am embarassed of myself.

Desperate

Overwhelming feelings of regret and hurt fill me with the sanity I need to be calm.
The possibility of being calm stays slim and I have judged to quickly.
Mistakes are things I don’t make,
But I still regret my decision.

Full

The hope of tomarrow,
The excitment of today.
How I know what you will ponder.
And because you ponder me,

Faith

Trying to make sense of it all,
and not trying hard enough.

Am I really who I say I am?

Falsely Trusted

Who can I blame?
Is it I who tore down walls,
or are you a professional?

Life Story

If I could only make sense of it all.
My life.
My life doesn't make sense.
Well, at least to me.
