They Say | Unknown Artist Captured by @ValiantFab

They say love casts out fear
but fear cast out my love.
Now I’m sitting in the rain and thinking how we fell apart.
I see you with your children and your loved one.
I’m in awe.
I’m thinking how the hell I messed that up and I’m appalled.
I thought about apologizing…
didn’t have the heart.
From time to time when we collide I don’t know where to start.
A “how you been?” seems fraudulent.
I seen it from afar
and small talk with a distant lover doesn’t mesh at all.

Strong | Artwork by @Guidovanhelten Captured by @Jacmoo.

You used to tell me to be strong.
Be wary cuz things go wrong.
Never worry. Stay real and live long.

But you never prepared me to lose you.
Now I’m looking, I’m desperate to find truth.
Now I’m tripping.
Conflicted.
I might lose
my mind.
Try to flip it.
I fidget.
Tears run down my eyes.
You don’t care.
Not a tidbit.
You were a passerby.
Tell me,
do you have feelings?
Are you just made of lies?

Ten Toes | Artwork by @Jleedraws

Baby, I’m fine. Here I stand. Ten toes.
And you could be mine but you got no goals.
And I don’t got time to define our roles.
I just want a little love and your pot ‘o gold.
Don’t crack. Baby, please don’t fold.
It’s gun’ take a little time to confide my woes.
I’ma hit your line when I find more dough.

You always say you’re through but it’s all fo’ show.

I take you to your highs when you’re feeling low.
I just want the proof that you’re mine alone.

Flight | Artwork by @Sipros_sipros Captured by @Kaotik954

I’m just gonna take flight,
make a couple million,
make sure mama’s alright.
Break a milli down and make a flip like old times.
But this is much different. Now I got a new life.
The dreams are much bigger. And I got a new wife.
She got me feeling like a hero and I wanna do right
by her, by me, and everyone in sight.
I just hope I got it in me. I just hope that I could fight through the ego and the pain and the glory and the strife.

Put Up A Fight | Artwork by @Panzone_art Captured by @Valiantfab

I just put up a fight in this thing we call life.
I put my own money down. And I try. And I try.
And I fail and I fall. But I’m never defeated.
I’m always getting back up and toward the source of grievance
until I rip it apart and get it out of my life.
I was doomed from the start but was ahead of my time.
They only pick up to call when they see that you’re flying
but they scramble like roaches the second stars ain’t aligning.

[DOPE or NAH?] Pouya – Void

Pouya recently dropped a visual for a track entitled “Void” that features the artist looking like he’s spent 40 days, and 40 nights stuck in the Everglades all while spitting in his usual smooth delivery. What do you think? DOPE or NAH?

An Air of Love | Artwork by @JasonNaylor Captured by @Catscoffeecreativity

It seems like love is in the air.
It seems to ripple everywhere.
It comes in waves. It comes in droves.
It came for me but you don’t care.
It seemed like love was in the air
the day we met. I met your stare.
You told me peace. I told you love
but nothing ever happened there.
I just think love is never fair.
It takes from you and never shares.
We pay for views into affairs of things we can’t really compare
just lusting for a breath of air.
I want you here and never there.
If only I could find a pair
I’d tell you now and face my fear.
