Shiny Clean

fuck this
filthy mess
it’s me
make it right
clean something
shiny clean

fuck this
stupid girl
always dreaming
never real
on your knees
scrub everything

fuck this
polluted vision
wasted tears
tainted passion
keep brushing
can’t stop

fuck this
worthless shit
still pretending
forever wanting
eternal wishing
look close
missed a spot
start over

  1. I can absolutely empathize with these thoughts. So many times, trying so hard to get it right, being right… And never feel like I got there.

    Some day, I’d love to move beyond these feelings. Sigh…

    Maybe someday.

    Very powerfully written Tara!!!

      1. I guess we all face challenges in our lives… yes?

        Just to be able to write,

        And let it out,

        And feel the catharsis offered by others,
        Is a blessing I believe.

        It’s not being lame, I suggest,
        It’s living.

        Please keep writing my friend.

        I love your work!!!

        1. That, my friend, makes me smile, and is so meaningful to me.

          Thank you.

          I hope you have a wonderful Friday, and savor every moment.
