I can live with my eyes shut!

An engine not turning

failure’s synonymous with learning

There’s something inside

Tongues behind teeth hide

and a rhyme can disguise all the right kinds of anguish

How does it come out?

Why can’t I shout?

Dr. Seuss crackhead, stop trying

An engine won’t turn

It’s frozen in doubt

hide the truth behind what’s easy

a smile, I’m fine

the words I can’t find

to ask why


swapping death with life

to please you

but the truth is, I just forgot again

who and what



Open eyes, turn the key

A spark

within the engine
