Before Old

Before Old
Rate this poem

Tryna Fake it
till I make it
standing here to make a show
to define you
and to study
just as far as you can go

do you seize me
how I like it
I’m so difficult
to read
like some paper
or a booklet
or a napkin
with a theme

here I’m standing
staring at you
looking at you
crossed the room
mopping floors
and changing pictures
if I kiss you
I will be doomed
won’t this happen
or I show it
I regret
all my mistakes
wanna study
wanna get it
just before
it’s just too late

now you’re leaving
I’m not leaving
staring at you
as you leave
one more shot
I don’t have shots
so now I stand here
watch me bleed
cause I need you
wanna meet you
wanna know you
wanna hold you
wanna stock you
wanna mock you
just before I get too old

now I’m washing
all the dishes
cleaning houses
cooking stoves
wish I moved
in your direction
now I got another load
much too laundry
much too cleaning
much too late to try again
when I see you
you’ll be taken
so I guess
me
you
just friends
I will harass you
and embrace you still
I’m slick I will get away
what I do
it might just harm you
I am sure I will get away

I am charming
I am evil
you know me
I don’t make sense
watch me
dancing
beneath roses
when I walk
behind your fence

yeah you see me
all around you
like a mellow
to a stove
why I tease you
with my clearance
now it’s me
and you alone

Am I crazy
you don’t get it
what my poets
don’t make sense
my names
ebony
mcmillan
I’m High maintenance
and intense

so define me
and come seize me
study lift
and over all
watch my safety tips
and safety net
cause one day I will fall
