Simple To Be


I try and listen to others,
the messed up generations,

I sit and talk, wear what's
left of my heart, on my sleeve,

because I want to trust this difficult
sense of unworthiness that I too
carry,

the world is not owned by anybody,
and I think a lot of people are just
completely fake,

and that goes right up, to the top!

there is no king in this kingdom
nor is there a queen,

royal is not the same as noble,

my heart bleeds when the whole
beautiful possibility opens itself up,

when I am alive and nowhere to be seen,

but by myself I feel certain origins,
of all people who have trampled this
lonely earth, and passed on,
a quintessence of blood,

and if my heart beats too hard, or I die,
or everything is dust, in the blink of an eye,

I need to scratch my tongue, taste blood,
urges soaked in spittle, i don't know sometimes
where to go - next?

why does hope, melt like wax? ,

Death I'd say your looking much thinner today....
what was that - your going to have a panic attack?

why despair, when there's absolutely nothing there...

that's the vacuum...

fear always finds another way in,
overturns what stability is left,

time - you beautiful rotten old thing,

always waiting to define me,

can't get my words out,
and my reason is spilled,

I push imaginary other me's off cliffs,
hurl them in front of trucks,

swallow whole chunks of vertigo!

yes the hieroglyph 'fear',

must know me...

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

Good-night? ah! no; the hour is ill
Which severs those it should unite;
Let us remain together still,
Then it will be good night.

How can I call the lone night good,
