Valhalla | Artwork by @Dasicfernandez Captured by @Willet65

I’m tryna reach Valhalla. Tryna align all my chakras. I’m an inch away from relapse and a skip away from drama. But I don’t quell my problems. I’m attacking them instead. I think I’ve reached a point I’m manifesting what is said and all it took was ten years of my life to get ahead. I feel a power in me.
Indescribable. At best,
it’s like good energy just showers over me.
I’m blessed.
It feels like nothing in this world can stop me short of death.

In My Head | Artwork by @Onurpainting Captured by @Pixelatedstreets

I’m hardly ever home but you’re always in my head.

And I ain’t nothing much but you stuck with me instead
of dipping when you coulda. Wouldn’t blame ya if you did.
And I know that you’re independent.
I know that you’re real.
I know that you’re sick of headaches.
I know how you feel.
I know that I’m like a blemish you could never heal.
But I hope that you love me dearly even when I’m peeled
to skin and bones.
I hope you love me in my truest form.

Truth be told,
you blow my mind.
I never loved before
I met you.
It got me thinking this is something.
And you’re someone who is special.
You cherish every moment and make everything eventful.
I need you now. I need you here.
I need your kiss.
I need you now. I need you here.
I need your lips.
I want you now.
I wish that things weren’t amiss.
If you would have me over just know I would make the trip.

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.

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.

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.

Split | Artwork by @Nychos Captured by @Pixelatedstreets

I’m usually a soldier. I’m not with all the complaints.
But I feel like I’m split in two or someone took my brain.
The longer I look into things the more they look the same.
I just want some peace and quiet from the attempts at fame.
Some kid just hit me up to tell me I inspire him.
But I ain’t shit. I’m struggling to try and meet my rent.
So though I thank him I just don’t feel quite accomplished yet
but hope that one day I’ll be worthy of the praise I get.

Mandatory | Artwork by @Nilsrva Captured by @Pixelatedstreets

She’s looking back at me and I can’t really quite decide if I want to walk up to her or run so I could hide. But damn. I got this feeling when she looked into my eyes. I want her. And I need her. Need to know if she’s inclined… I can not live another day without knowing her name.
It’s mandatory that we talk.
I hope she feels the same.
Just looking at her face I see some glimpses of the pain
that I’ll eclipse with love until we’re dead and in our graves.
