In the midst of our separation
And my deprivation
         of you
My feelings of uselessness
Our feelings of hopelessness
         together
	The misuse
	The disuse
	You reduce
	My impairment
Reaching a new lowness
Because of the sameness-
          there's too much
	The command
	The demand
	You reprimand 
	My abnormality
This feeling of incompleteness
Shows off my distressfulness
          without you
	The subjection
	The dejection
	Your rejection
	Of my wretchedness
		Needing immense growth
		Wanting construction
		Getting no growth
		Getting destruction
		Wanting a victory
		Receiving only defeat
		Dreaming of your arms
		But waking to the street

A Poem For Carey and Corey...My Two Best Friends

I tell you what I feel-
	My feelings
I tell you what I dream-
	My dreamings
I tell you what I see-
	My seeings
		You listen
		You're there
		You help me
		You care
I tell you how i deal-
	My dealings
I tell you how I seem-
	My seemings
I tell you how I be-
	My beings
		You listen
		You're there
		You help me
		You care
I tell you what I write-
	My writings
I tell you what I read-
	My readings
I tell you what I say-
	My sayings
		You listen
		You're there
		You help me
		You care
I tell you how I fight-
	My fightings
I tell you how I need-
	My needings
I tell you how I stray-
	My strayings
		You listen
		You're there
		You help me
		You care
I tell you what and how I feel-
	You listen to my feelings
I tell you what and how I dream-
	You're there for my dreamings
I tell you what and how I see-
	You help me with my seeings
		You care 
		About
			What I feel
			What I dream
			How I deal 
			How I seem
			What I see
			What I write
			How I be
			How I fight
			What I read
			What I say
			How I need
			How I stray
					You Care

Desperately needing to scream.
	To scream!
Restraining myself, I think
THe things they destroyed-
		Destroying my dreams
What right so they have to hit?
	To hit!
Wanting to know what I did
Did I destroy them-
		Destroy my dreams?
Thinking I need to fight back.
	Fight back!
Letting them know what they've done
But no, THEY destroyed-
		Destoyed my dreams
Sick of the screaming.
	The screaming! The screaming!
Tired of the sitting.
	The hitting! The hitting!
Desperately needing to get out
			help me

For My Arthur, Forever and Always

Before I met thee
	I needed to escape
	   A Feeling of neglect
	   A Nonexistence
	   An Imcompleteness
	They wanted to ban me
	   Bar me
	   Cansor me
	They wanted to hide me
	   Conceal me
	   Shut me
Now that I know thee
	I want to stay
	   A Feeling of love
	   An existence
	   A completeness
	They still want to ban me
	   Bar me
	   Cansor me
		You won't let them
	They still want to hide me
	   Conceal me
	   Shut me
		You won't let them
			For this I love you
	   

For My Friend Who's Soon To Leave Me

I went to visit my school today
I saw my friend who is soon to to leave me
I'm going to miss him
He's my best friend

He used to want to leave this town
But now that he has the chance to
He doesn't want to

I have so many things I want to tell him
I'll never fogive myself if I
Don't tellhim these things

I need to tell him that I love him

I need to tell him that I would
Not be alive today if it
Weren't for him

I went to visit my school today
I saw my friend who is soon to leave me
I'm going to miss him
He's my best friend
