Fish


I f he said 'I love you'
He does love you
He loves you and you
and you
But not really you.
Man is so focused of him-self
that He loves you
because he only loves the way
you appear to be
say 'I'm 18 and free'
that they wanted you to be.
So man-ish.
Trust me.

I'm not bitter nor broken-hearted
Loveless, neird with a beird or rejected
I'm just being self-ish.

Sometimes I forget about all of you.
All I remember is my-self
And I become Self-ish
But that's just how a human is
-unstable
-unable
-unfavorable
so human-ish.
But that's just a human frailty
could be
a -fish
Always unhappy
but should always be seen as pretty.
scales get tired weekly
gills die quickly
swims in the ocean of the greedy
a -FISH.

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
