all I wanted

This is a poem based on the next song I’m planning on releasing. I wanted to see what words and emotions I could choose for this different format, as lyrics and poems are very different to write. Enjoy!


What are you

Even

Doing here?

She says,

As she watches me

Hyperventilate.

All I hear

Is:

If you’re

Really

As talented

As it seems you are,

Why can’t I tell?

Show me who you are

With every breath

That you have.

But sometimes,

All I want

Is a good

Coffee.

But all the shops are

s h u t.
