You’ve seen me smile
brought me these drinks
we confessed our dreams
for all these fancy things
is that why you call me a friend?

you’ve tasted the tears
I’ve let fall from my eyes
but haven’t felt any of the pain
I’ve felt inside and yet,
you still call me a friend

you say you’re beautiful
just the way you are
but will you love the ugly heart
hidden underneath this mask
when all I need is a friend.



Hello, My Brother

Look at where we are,
How on earth did we make it this far?
Two graduates, one with a masters
Here’s to the grey goose and laughter
Raise a glass to the past and partners
To scratch cards, budgeting on hardships
The bitter tears, the sweetest memories
To lost best friends and new beginnings
Here’s to the late walks home and early rises
Forgetting good habits in the midst of vices
Pre-drinking to a repeated YouTube playlist
To stalking next ex-girlfriends Facebook pages
Here’s to living it up, not giving a shit
To buckling down and giving a shit
Here’s to ping pong balls and snooker tables
Bench pressing more than we were able
I propose a toast to our success and failures
Offended bartenders and late night caterers
Carving out friendships, different from others
It’s Goodbye stranger, and hello, my brother
