The poems I choose to write about are a documentation of my life through spoken word. ‘Daises’ was written about a love in my life that helped me realize the things in my life that are indescribable.A self described comparison of how love fails all of us, in the most bizarre and uninhabited ways.

Daises was written about my first relationship, a love that not only taught me about myself but also taught my how to love and how not to love. I decided to compare drawing and arts and crafts to my self-destructive personality because they both are things I never fully understood. As a child, I never could wrap my head around why teachers, parents and camp counselors wanted to sit us down and make us glue things that didn’t matter, to another object that too didn’t matter. I saw no point in focusing my time in something that would eventually do nothing for me. Which is how I see relationships, my first one in particular. I suffer from a lot of mentally destructive problems and being able to fully love someone the way you’re suppose to is one of my main problems. Daises was a way to help me break down my incompetent love skills and my horrible artistic skills in a poem format. I tried breaking down the two things that I am most terrible at and see where I can meet them in the middle without having to fake anything. Falling in love is unlike any other feeling, but sometimes it takes more than glue and fake smiles to keep someone like me happy. This poem is an excerpt from a short novel I plan on publishing in the future, filled with personal poems and journal entries from my past, present and future.
