Corner



Do not mind my shame
It's always in the corner
Do not mind my pained
It got worse as I got older
Do not mind my thoughts
They are always in the air
Do not mind my mouth
My words are always there
Do not mind my hands
They are sudden and abrupt
Do not mind my eyes
My eyes,
They'll never shut
Do not mind my brain
Dislocated from my spine
Do not mind my movements
Ignore them, I don't mind
Do not mind my presence
I promise I am safe
Do not mind my actions
My brain is trained to shake
Do not mind my manner
I was taught to work around it
Do not mind my spine
But let me know if you have found it
Do not mind my heart
The sole purpose is unspoken
Do not mind my nose
To it,
Everything is potent
Do not mind my lungs
They crack with broken tiles
Do not mind my pace
While you walk, I'll run a mile
Do not mind my blood
It has alway been a blue
Do not mind my stains
The’ll rub up onto you
Do not mind my quilt
It is not as colorful as you thought
Do not mind my sentences
I write them quite a lot
Do not mind my finger nails
There are scars that follow down
Do not mind my white, pink stripes
I'll wear sleeves when your around
Do not mind my sister
If she was there to mind
Do not mind my mothers anger
Sometimes she is kind
Do not mind my cloth
I carry it as rhythm
Do not mind underneath my clothes
I'm also wondering what's in them
Do not mind my chipped teeth
Even If if you didn't notice
Do not mind my salty lungs
With a heavy menthol coating
Do not mind my bouncy legs
They permanently creak
Do not mind my facial movements
My nerves are pinched and tweaked
Do not mind my angled knuckles
Brick is harder than bone
Do not mind my broken laughter
I'll try to change my tone
Do not mind his twenty seven
It's gotten more difficult to ignore
Do not mind the loud banging
Its my head not your door
Do not mind my slouching posture
My organs are always empty
Do not mind my chubby waist
If its fat then I have plenty
Do not mind my clumsy walking
I agree I'm not in shape
Do not mind my flapping shoes
I tie with trees and rope, not lace
Do not mind my story
It was re-read way to much
Do not mind my chest
I know I'm pushing in my lungs
Do not mind my skull
I know the skin around it tore
Do not mind my crevices
The ones I won't explore
Do not mind my anger
Trust me,
I'm mad about it to
Do not mind my anxiety
I'm sorry for projecting it onto you
Do not mind my feet
I really don't wear shoes
Do not mind my broken balance
I know my legs are bruised
Do not mind my mind games
I don't think about them much
Do not mind my awful timing
I don't mean to interrupt
Do not mind my unexpected comments
I don't know about them either
Do not mind my horrid art
I promise I'm not a demon
Do not mind my Mr. teddy
I'm always alone in bed
Do not mind my beating heart
My blood is still not red
Do not mind my off percent
Its an unbalanced wager
Do not mind the words I'm saying
Even though
You'll forget about them later.
