Slow Down

might slow down for a bit
i'm sick of all the same old $(-) ! +
time and time again it ends
time and time again

i'm bored
and horny and i think i need a smoke
but i'm broke
hearing the sound of a g-chord
life is a joke so

might slow down for a bit
sick of all the same old $(-) ! +
time and time again it ends
time and time again

guess and check to roll with the punches
arrogant in our morbid hunches
if i can last for one more season
i'll have a reason to keep believing

might slow down a bit
sick of all the same old $(-) ! +
time and time again it ends
time and time again

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
