Written by Gay Writes

by Phoenix

Anguish
it has to be with/
the crazy style
feel some(thing) (ir)relevant
or anguish
I am angular


not quite felt sharp-angled
parted too hard and spent (out)
high from pure pennies
American wealth
pennies and momentum

I don’t actually say though
I say it’s something dealt like Jack cards
felt by nothing death or sharp [and shard] the peaceful shades and spade of jack
it’s anguish like this sharp card and shard

I cried on the sidewalk last night

did it matter(ed)
or was I just biology
anguish/replenish
the pain is radical I am a fool
where the blood red Phoenix Arizona t-shirt
if it makes you feel any better
if it makes you happy and sad
the poem is bigger
then the page of your tears and ideas

I don’t believe
know if I can survive
crazy, crazy style for a pack of cards
or wolves a pack of wolfed give
yourself the space and rhythm of time
hardwired like your friend
he went incognito
what shall it be

logic breaks down
into poetry

I am depressed and want to kill myself

balance a balance struck
anguish is my card or penny
my writing Jacked
nothing in

this

I hand hurts
so let me anguish smash
my hand

hurt from write
it’s anguish and irrational
a rash null
ration(ed) reason(ed)

(no detail—)

Agony
I create within
I worry and we’re eh
and agony

my thoughts are that sharp blade
corrected in blood red stuck
and hellbound stayed
I don’t see myself in some stupid religion
of massacre masochism

my thoughtful hurt and
the blade sharp blade and cut
moment in my mind
alert
so sharp and

I’m sadistic by it
the mental torment
tormented too tormented
and

the dark is the agon-
the agony

I’m on my bent knees
confessed prayer of my pain
I create something like agony
refrain

to be afraid is to derail all non-paranoia
I just feel the words and it
its intuit

strong feelings of
paranoid narration
standard deviation
no tunnel vision creation

I stab my heart for non-theatrics

though my thoughts are terminal

terminally

sincere since dramaturgical
and not quite felt pain
what is the nature of good and evil
what will we do

what can we do

when the knife is agony
when blade surgery

I reject the confusion in my skepticism
I have often said
have half said it is
it is my mind that hurts
but no one believes me or knows
what to express and empathize

I don’t like myself so I agon-

I create in agon-
in
agony
anguish I dismiss and
release
I’m slanted by slant can’t words
intentions negative like
created bent thoughts

don’t
though you’ll tell me and I
fault though
fall

agony of motivation
I get it out of my system with ink

something
yet within will think
I’m just

always just

just
though injust unjust will sway and
the way will
fallen
yet I remember
remind fixation
on my fiction of
fractured fractioned
some imaginary crucifixion

is just an emotional story to tell a

little bit of ag-
agony

and

it’s my poetry

I am always happy
to show you another poem I wrote

even if it is

my ink agony
