Fake Friends Around – Jixi Fox – [#Poetry]

Friends at Columbia University.

If you can’t be real with me than who are you real with?

A fake friend is in my mist but I try my hardest to resist,

The urge that’s aching me to call them out and put an end to this friend,

Or maybe to this friendship since its filled with fakeness from this fake ass friend,

It’s just so petty when your friends claim to be real but they aint,

It’s like calling a simple hangout one hell of a date,  in which it wasn’t so it just ain’t,

People are in clear sight with disguises on thinking that they are blending in,

How stupid do you think I am, you are fake, it’s simply just what it is,

I hate the lies and phony cries of hype you throw along my way,

It’s just sad and disgusting, why can’t you just be happy in other words be gay,

Or maybe you are, but not near but from a far in a closet you locked yourself in,

You don’t want to come out, simply in denial being someone you really cant be honest with,

Damn it I hate when a friend just can’t be true, I guess they just want to be fake,

So don’t you mind my finger floating on by, trust me its coming your way, I am pointing at you.

FIN

(*note: To all my fake friends sitting by my side, I really don’t see why you claim you ride with me, just go the other way and say goodbye, you don’t owe me anything, so just go be your fake self in some other element.)

The Simple One

Girls be yapping bout the older the better,
While I stay young and keep they body more wetter,
Don’t get me wrong cuz I am mature,
Tell me all your problems and I will find the cure,
I will be your Romeo and you my Juliet,
We can drive in my corvette til the sunset,
But yet, I tell you baby girl don’t you dare fret,
Life will be grand leaving you with no regrets,
All we need to do is love and trust,
If we were both pies then that’s just the crust,
Girl why are you so shy I’ll sing you a lullaby,
Which will sooth your mind if you ever start to cry?
Things that are easy sometimes become hard,
So I understand why you had put up your guards,
While we look at the stars that are so far,
No one can tell me you are not the one, because you just are, The Simple One

Frustration by Jixi Fox [Poetry Tuesday]

Frustration

Frustration, who has it?
I do, Yes I do,
But what can I do?
I want more than I am giving,
Tired of losing, I need to be winning,
Tired of being mute, I need to be singing,
So what must I do, a hundred things by myself,
I can do that shit,
I am so sick and tired of me,
I just need to be who I want to be,
Push it, Push it, Push it pass the mark,
Push it pass one hundred, Push it pass two hundred,
Be the cameraman, be the talent in front of the lens,
Edit the scene, Revise the script,
Oh you ain’t write one? Who the hell are you?
You can’t you serious,
Do you like walking around with an anchor chained to your legs?
Maybe you need more strapped on so you can stand still,
And see where you can’t go.  Believe in yourself and try,
Break free and feel the freedom and starting running,
Look back? What for, try your best to stay on the straight and narrow,
Unless you want to deal with this frustration again.
