Hot and bright!

My bones ache!
My heart faints!
I see space!
I think play!
I'm glad you don't like me!
I don't like you either!
I was happy in the bed warm sleep no thoughts deeper!
We all have likes and dislikes I'm okay at times by myself!
Peace I pray for you peace i hope you pray for me I will never celebrate things I don't feel!
At times I don't feel at all!
I despise this thing that you call winter!
It will never matter who it's for!
I bless you all go away even more!
It's a hazard and a waiste of my face!
Every time I feel cold my gun comes out my waiste!
Leave my money on the table!
Do not touch the things of my year!
Do not call my phone not answering!
Once opposites attract beware!
I care less about the extras!
Take them back to your lands!
When the n word came from a mouth death came into my stance!
So now for me I do things!
Bothered to even think I hear a snore!
My guard dog sits at the entrance with teeth like knives that cut you more!
