Pencil stubs

Pencil stub
Yellow grub 
Filthy nub
Of my thoughts
I write them in my mind
Only for me to see
Only for me to judge 
And I judge harshly

So many wasted pencils
So much graphite 
And time used to 
Create shit
Even if it’s only in my mind
Even if I’m the only witness

I deserve better than these four walls
Covered in scrawled haikus of anger
I want my walls clean
Bright, words in all caps, pink marker
But I don’t know how

Do you?
