Withstood Understanding

By Thomas Hannah

We were weightless
With dilated eyes & Blurry faces
When life felt like a one night stand
But now we’re heavy and waistless
We know the true meaning of fucking wasted
Strangers are friends
When friends are strangers
Friends are strange
When strange is faceless
Mark David Chapman
Delivers John Lennon a bullet
And asks him to sign for it
Jack Kennedy loses his mind
& Jesus had it coming.

I Only wish to see faces from words
Or Shake hands with paper 

Finding his love of poetry through songwriting and music, Thomas Hannah is an Australian artist with influences from Billie Holiday to Black flag & back again.
