Velvet Merkin Discovery (FF 75)

from Freestyle Friday Vol. 1 by Philo Reitzel



Im trying not to utter trivial syllables
Silence is golden but communication is critical
Attempting to process my emotions when feelings are visceral
But usually end up acting from the gut not my occipital
I’m a work in progress like all of us but I’m learning
See my faults as points for improvement and not a burden
That’s the goal, it’s not always necessarily workin
My self doubt lurks in the shadows like some nefarious person
What you covering up, velvet merkin discovery
What we hide behind closed curtains sometimes is certainly ugly
I got memories from the past that fuck with me
My first instinct is to suppress em nothing to see
Could probably use my fair share of therapy
But something bout opening up to a stranger is scaring me
Fahrenheit 451 while you watching on my tv
I got problems since I was a Juvenile 400 degreez
Bubblin hot, growin flower arboretum
Trouble in the spot they got em after that you never seen him
Came back but his story don’t add up so don’t believe him
Got damn ain’t it tough just to be a human being
