Hey there, I'm Don. 22 years old, and a passenger of the roller coaster of life. Luckily not doing it alone, and have the most supportive and amazing girl on the planet by my side. And having a kickass group of friends helps too. My mind works in a nonstop visual manner, and I'm always looking to learn new things. So maybe stick around and see what we can teach or show each other.

As she woke up, and showered,
And got ready for her day.
I filled the space within the bed
And wished that she could stay.

Gone for merely minutes,
I think twenty at the most.
Time moves by so freely
when we’re driving to the coast. 

And tonight in bed again I lay,
it’s not the same without you.
Again I wish that you could stay,
Cause it’s not the same without you.  

So, I feel like I recently told one or two of my followers that I would show them some of my poetry. So I’m just gonna casually leave this here, cause I’m not sure who I told that to…

“I’m glad that you’re my girl.”

Let me tell you about this story of a girl 
She holds her head high, no worries to the world
But inside she’s dying, and it seems nobody cares
She’s always down for someone, but when she need’s them no one’s there
A flawless girl on the outside, but she’s screaming on the in
she deserves pure happiness, to be held, ask “where’ve you been?”
A knight in cracking armor
But girl I’ll wrap around ya
Where I’ve been, I’ll tell you 
I was on my way to here
I had to find my way to you, so it took me a few years
But I’m here for you now, and I’ll never let you go
I’ll hold you tight just let them out, your sorrows and your woes
A kiss goodnight, a light lip touch
Blood rush to cheeks, you slightly blush
I’ll hold you tight just to protect you from the world
You’ll cuddle close, look up and tell me: “I’m glad that I’m your girl.”

Come close, my dear
let me whisper in your ear
Sweet nothings, assure you there’s nothing here to fear
I’ll protect you from the world, I said
Even though it doesn’t go past this bed
tonight it’s just you and I
Look me in the eye, tell me if you think I lie
You know I don’t
You know I won’t 
That’d be just another way to hurt you
But I won’t ever do that, I never will desert you
To you this I promise
naught else matters but us
Let’s talk until the sun comes up
Lay in bed ‘til it goes back down
Let your guard down as the world goes black
I’ll be your support, you know I’ve got your back
A white knight
against the black night 
And yet we’re still laying here in this bed
brush your hair gently, kiss you gently on your head 
You’re falling asleep now, close and safely sheltered from the world
I hold you tightly, lightly whisper “I’m glad that you’re my girl.”

That awkward moment..

When you’re told to select something to read to your acting class, be it a poem, monologue, excerpt from a book, or something you wrote, and you’re the only person that selects something written by yourself. I chose a poem that I wrote a couple months ago, that I found relevant to life right now, or rather, how I’d like life to be for me right now. It was supposed to be a piece that moved you as the reader. I wasn’t expecting the reaction I got from people. It involved doe eyes from a few girls, and a couple others going “that was the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard.” I don’t think any of them believed that I wrote it. But I guess that’s what happens.. 

I know a lot of you are probably going, well that’s not that awkward. But for me, it kind of was. It was the first time I’d ever read something I wrote in front of people, other than Sabrina. And I had to go last, after everyone else had read from articles, or poems, or recited lines from movies, and things like that. And since the poem has a bit of background, it just felt weird. But things went better than expected I guess. 

 

What I Would Give

For this night to never end
I’d rather lay under stars with you
looking up, my face with a gentle bend
A smile upon my face
with you it’s never out of place
Stress free in a stress filled world
the business and noise stops when I’m by your side girl 
But now I’m not next to you
I’m seven feet off the ground
hard swallow through my throat, as I lean over, look down
What would happen if I were to fall
Would I bounce like a ball?
or would I lay there motionless
would I shout or remain speechless
a fall from here might hurt me, but I think it’d relieve the stress
I’ve been going through so much so lately
Things seem to go well, but it’s really life’s way to bait me
think I’ve got a winner, a way to enjoy my life
hang everything I enjoy by thread, and then cut it down with a knife
Things were well
and now look at them; they fell
back to wishing life was more
back to thinking what it’d be like from the floor
looking up through the ceiling, wishing there were stars
looking into your eyes, realizing, there are

And we’re straightening out the bumps

please let me get over this hump
I’d rather get rid of the lump
That knotted, twisted, feeling inside
that makes me feel weak, makes my hand shake, from side to side
I just want things to be normal
to go smoothly for more than
Just a couple of weeks
push through the bullshit, and bring cheer to my cheeks
I like smiling, better than frowning
but lately I’m just drowning
lost in my own thoughts
some good, some not
Please lift me out of this hole
Why? ‘Cause this life is getting old.  

Even Titans Want to Feel Human

Stay strong, you must
Carry on, you must
None other can do it but us
the unnamed pillars of the earth
we didn’t ask to be this way, was designated at birth
What I’d give to be normal
to be able to collapse, at the end of a day
cry out to the world, hang my head and say
I need someone’s help, will you be there for me?
But I can’t do that, it’s sad, I can’t bend at the knee
I stand tall above the heavens, holding up the galaxy
High above your heads, when all I want to do is lay
softly and gently, less cares for the world
but that’s the curse of us all
If we move or let go, the world might just fall
If I could only be weaker than I am
then I might feel slightly human
A titan in a mortal land
I touch my face with callused hands
and it feels alien to me
Once upon a time these hands were very soft, gentle
But now they’re barely mine
been holdin’ up your ceilin’
The skin on them ain’t healin’
In fact, they’re bleedin’
but it falls on you like rain
washes away your pain
You pick yourself up, dust yourself off
and move on about your day
But I’m still standing above you, a frown upon my face
my hands unable to move, cannot wipe the tears away.  

"I’m glad that you’re my girl."

Let me tell you about this story of a girl 
She holds her head high, no worries to the world
But inside she’s dying, and it seems nobody cares

But I’m here for you now, and I’ll never let you go

Come close, my dear

Sweet nothings, assure you there’s nothing here to fear
I’ll protect you from the world, I said
Even though it doesn’t go past this bed
