Learn | Artwork by @Mateutarga Captured by @Estorninos1

All I gave was love but I got nothing in return.
My heart was trampled. I was broken.
I was left to learn.

I was left to mourn reading letters from the past.
Tryna stay the course with my mind running outta gas.

But there’s nothing that can stop me. And you didn’t take my soul so I figure I would make it to spite you and all your blows.

Put you in the rearview mirror.
Now I’m focused on the present.
Now I read some books to build my wealth
and clearly you ain’t present.

Together | Artwork by @Dface_official Captured by @Pixelatedstreets

We belong together. I know this. For sho’ it’s
been a mighty long time and I’m hella nervous
but I think it’s time since our love’s hotter than a furnace.
I promise I’ll provide cuz you’re deserving.
Baby, you don’t tarnish.
You’re always golden
garnished with a side of emotion.
Outspoken.
I just need your love.
Need your mind.
Want your body.
And you don’t need your clothes where we’re going.
Just come find me.

Visions |Artwork by @Sillysullys Captured by @Finehood

Since I left you I can’t lie I’m feeling blue.
It’s for the best, boo,
but I didn’t want to choose.
Now I’m haunted by the visions of your body against mine
and I really can’t decipher if I miss you or my mind
is playing tricks on me to try and make me press rewind.
I see you vividly like almost every single night
but that’s just in my dreams and those are things I just can’t fight.
I wonder why?

Acidic | Artwork by @StevetheBum

I once took a tab of acid and tapped into different planets.
Met a dog that came from NASA. And a bird from Alabama sang me blues and Country Grammar as I held on to a flower.
I was holding on for dear life as my brain cells got devoured till I realized I’m the master of my mind and I have power so I started meditating for what seemed like endless hours
till I reached a peace of mind that only patience can acquire.
– Daniel Steez

Direct inspiration for the poem came from this trippy artwork by #GullySteez contributor @Stevethebum.

Padlocked |Artwork by @Lecogoyote Captured by @Tag_pdx

I’m tryna get inside her mind
but I think that it’s padlocked.
She’s talking pretty wild sometimes
and she says that I’m bad luck.

And I know that she’s doubting me.
But I guess that it’s fine to me
cuz I’m not built for salaries.
I’m working just to boss up.

And she don’t need to get that.
But she should just respect that.
I’m who I am. No take backs.
No shame. No games. No fake friends.
I’m gone.
