Seeking Oblivion


You’d only hope to seek
Chewing tongue and cheek
In oblivion

The only thing that I
Shoulda done but never tried
Was lithium

And everything’s silent
But your movements are giant
I bet it’s you that fucked

You think that’s it’s so hot
Think it’s gossip but it’s not
Get over it

When you see a hand upon a face
And your bags your own and no-one’s on your case
It gets me down that’s it’s only temporary
When food and hope and hearts aren’t necessary

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
