Sammi Ama Poems
Today, already -new-
woke up from a restless night with clarity so complete, so clear it was easy to forgive myself for the potent weakness
You'll find me in the Mediterranean
I read that a species of shrimp is the loudest animal, that they can create a sonic boom so loud you can’t even hear it but it can still stun you to death
sob for the lack of substance in all your conversations you allowed them to dilute down
Promises don't have much value, but hope...
people tend to underestimate themselves a lot, even when they're overconfident and their personalities are loud, those little loose ends unravel, then tangle into insecurities that haunt bones & great minds alike.
I told myself I’d regret it in the morni...
He says “Thank you” but I didn’t do it for him; I did it for me.
Fossils & Artifacts
I went to a museum yesterday to look at what was left of the ancient Egyptian society,
I have friends but my friends are funny fair weather creatures that only call when they have stories to tell
Don't scratch inexplicable itches
I drank with him and his friends the other night and one of them turned so red, it looked as if someone stuck him into the oven and forgot him there.
What high school taught me...
Freshmen year, the only boy who wanted me was older, handsome, and knew exactly what he was doing when
Know your conversions
i don’t think that i am capable of love.
The truth is wrong
I told my friend how the only fate you possess is created by you. How the potential for any outcome is there,
Growing up doesn't change the important ...
When I was younger, I sang and sang any chance I got. I would wake up early Sunday mornings and let my grandmother yank the tangles out of my curly hair
Smoke & Mirrors
Don’t forget to look at everything with wide open eyes because you don’t want to miss a thing. You can’t be happy and you can’t love properly until
Filling Up the Pieces
I’ll be the chatter Of your teeth When it’s cold out

woke up from a restless night with clarity
so complete, so clear
it was easy to forgive
myself for the potent weakness
that stained my strength
we all have bad days
we've all been there
still, let me apologize
for dragging you
back into my dirt
it's nice to know, though
love is still here
I love you so much
nice to know I still have i
t right there inside me
waking up with forgotten senses
finally being utilized once again
is more refreshing than
a good night's rest
this is where I thank you
