Collaboration

each one is special to me  
unique and surprising in different ways  
honestly, I'm perfectly fine not doing another  
so maybe this can be my farewell  

first one I ever did was with my future wife  
we were just teens in high school  
it was a poem about our struggles with bullying  
something we knew much about  
"weaving their snide remarks  
attacking relentlessly  
damaging my mental stability  
monsters who look like people  
abusive, forgetting the shit things they do  
but I never forgot  
no, it's like yesterday those feelings"
 

I didn't do another till years later  
believe it was with Dave  
about the times I first came to this site  
we took inspiration from rock lyrics  
and did our own tribute to the greats  
"In my world, I paint it black  
Let it be, I am the walrus  
Strange days, that light my fire  
Smoke on the water, gives me a rush  
Purple haze, such a voodoo child  
Like a rolling stone, rust never sleeps"
 
 
I worked with a lot of amazing talent  
inspiring me with their creativity  
poems about giants, and anime  
vampires and marionettes  
stuff that opened my horizon  
"Come show me how you move to the beat of my heart  
Laying on my chest you dance like a king  
I'll be your queen tonight now show me how to swing  
Fill me with madness your little gift to me  
You can be the fishes I will be your sea"
 
 
even though there was never a bad collaboration  
there were relationships that were strained  
admittedly, it was probably my own stupidity  
funny thing is they were some of my favorites  
"slithers in the head demoness    
she wants to taste your pride    
bitter sweet vile'caine    
do a line and melt your brain    
she sees you are up for war    
she desires to know you more"
 
 
and of couse there were those that are unforgettable  
touching my heart with their kindness  
broken pieces to a beautiful puzzle  
these people I consider poetic royalty  
that I was lucky enough to work with  
"This shall pass too, my dear  
Anchor belief in Yourself  
and don't let the lightning of hatred  
strike you down  
or tempest of wrath rip you apart  
for these are the tools of the miserable  
and the spiritually dead  
to pull you down and leave you a wreck"
 
 
so that's it  
from school room halls  
gritty raw  
imaginative  
hate fucks  
and a work of art  
it's been a pleasure
