J.J. Campbell


finally saying yes

think of the
love of your
life finally
saying yes

and then
remember
you don’t
live in a
world where
fucking dreams
come true

yet i wake up
each morning

text her hello
and wish her
a great day

i believe most
people tend to
call that insanity

they don’t
understand
that’s the
only fucking
reality i know



like we owned the fucker

once we were
beautiful creatures

parading around
the universe like
we owned the
fucker

eventually,
the truth ruins
everything

doubt destroys
any notion of
success

and all the
beautiful
people
become
rich

and only the
ugly are poor
and lonesome

the coffee
tastes like shit
on this side of
the world




J.J. Campbell (1976 - ?) was raised by wolves but managed to graduate high school with honors. He's been widely published over the years, most recently at Under the Bleachers, Mad Swirl, Synchronized Chaos, The Dope Fiend Daily and The Beatnik Cowboy. His most recent chapbook, the taste of blood on christmas morning, was published by Analog Submission Press. You can find him most days waxing poetic on his mildly entertaining blog, evil delights.
