Life consists of nothing but
Loud rushes of connections
that seem completely
Beneath all the nonsense,
there is order.
A system so tight and meticulous
there is no room for
Don't lose your sense in this nonsense.
Jumped through burning hoops ain't been the same since.
Funny how these obstacles can crush your innocence.
A frown behind a smile to cover up with fake benevolence.
Find me trapped in an unlocked residence.
The streets have run amok and there's no president.
Rise to the occasion.
Bodies covered in abrasion.
Unappreciated yet still on a mission.
Did you know,
Cigarettes taste like instant coffee,
The kind I drink at night,
When the dark keeps me awake.
And poetry feels like salvation,
Specially when it doesn't rhyme.
That headaches are the best thing that can happen to you,
When you're awake.
And sleep is a just a lie life tells you.
But you believe it,
Because it's the best fucking lie you'll ever hear.
but beauty doesn't lie in the eyes of the beholder,
It lies in it's extraction from the bullshit.
A green flamingo
Did land with the flock
Frank said "you ok"
"Air sick once more"
I tried to fly with my eyes
But I flew in to a
I tried to hitch a ride
But the plane engine
"Sucked me in"
Now my head is bald
And my bottom is
I think next time Ill take the train
I only hope I don't get motion sickness
I'll be an odd flamingo if I am green once more.
The wall that was a stoner,
It was always very high,
Everyday it felt it could get
Looks, rough around the edges
Quite a scruffy looking wall,
It was bricking it once,
As it thought it was moving
But that was the clouds passing by.
The wall always felt used,
It all of the time,
Some even hit it,
"Balls were always soar"
The wall was a stoner
It was a high wall, because its days
Were still, it couldn't be anything more..
and will not
sit here and speak to you
in metaphors and similes
like he did to me
because i know that you will not even come close to understanding
but neither am i gonna sit here
and zip up my mouth and lock it up
just to throw away the key and keep quiet.
i also cannot
and will not
speak to you in simplicity because
it is NOWHERE near that simple.
i am speaking nonsense
and you probably think that i'm just
jumbling letters together to create words
and having them just roll off of my tongue
but i swear to you that i'm not
i'm trying to make sense
but my thoughts aren't quite coming together
so maybe i'll just talk until they do
this is quite ironic actually
because i may be rambling,
but my feet are really, really cold.
