Titles would be overrated if overrated wasn't so cliche

I feel like you look for messages engraved in the cliche

i don't like it

but it seems to work.

this is straight forward.

i miss my metaphors

tired and hungry I can't help but wonder

can a metaphor be a metaphor for something greater than the metaphor itself?

i hate saying I so much.

there's too much out there

i cant just think of myself.

and yet in saying that I keep bringing myself into the picture 

how cliche.

and what's even more cliche, is pointing out how cliche everything is

i would call it irony, but by head wants to call it ivory

simply because one word flows more smoothly off the sleepy tongue than the other

how cliche 

to end a writing with a storybook ending by saying 

how cliche
