Push Me Pull You

Floating up into the sky
gradually my suffering pain
starts to subside

it was my sanctuary where i felt safe to hide
justification made it easy to lie

what my worries had to say
never got heard, only pushed away

procrastinating day to day
another problem
another hit, one more sack
lack of respect

drowning in my own confusion
thinking it was the right choice
to do this

but if you don't know right
you don't realize your in the wrong
so i reach for one more justified hit from the bong

yes it was wonderful, my peaceful place
my sadness left without a trace

suddenly it hurts, worse than ever before
like a monster truck who's breaks are wore

so away i go, push me pull you
momentum, a strong force
paralyzed to numbness
attempting but unsuccessful
i run right back with more spite than before

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
