Damage

Once apon a time is running out
 My world is closing now,
 Everything going out
 Like bad habits

 My life is damaging
 Like them bright lights
 And loud noises
 Still can say...
 I'm proud of my choices
 It made a better me

 Obsessed with imagery
 That you seek around this earth.
 I thought the womb was...
 Since birth.
 I can't consume a room
 Without flesh.

 Time is taking out the breath.
 I inhale my last air,
 Giving it all to planes.
 So people can fly anywhere.
 It's about time I meet the crisis
 Will I be truely missed
 Or just a chip off the block
 Like devices.

 My questions are paralyizing.
 The defense of the lion fish.
 I wish I was dying with a kiss!

Jon Otano Claim this poet

The topics I write about are very diverse, so are the poetry styles I apply. I started writing poetry in high school in 05. I had written some poetry during class and showed some of my classmates who enjoyed it! I then was chosen to have my poetry in the school newspaper for each month! I done a lot of my work in the library. I met a woman who i showed my work to that worked there, and she said she knew a man that works on the radio! Then i was able to read two poems off the radio. A news reporter who appeared on the station as well decided to do a report on me and I've been writing ever sense. :) If Anybody want to friend request me on Facebook feel free too! Just look up Jon Otano I should be easy to find! :) more…
