Dylan Thomas
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on that sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

I'll never fit this
Triangle looks like -
I hate how I'm seen,
Never close enough
To corners cast on me.

It does not write the way I want it.
If it could be quite right
It would be it's own silence.

The nights I sat in the quiet
Kept me up and asking
What I'd missed.

Looking at walls and windows
In the passing,
Dim lights through the lines
Could remind me
What's life like? What's a living?

Well,
Could I live well?

If I waited long enough
Could it kiss me?
An epiphany?
What am I missing?

Call me Oliver
It’s weird...
Now that I’m no longer in love with you, I have no reason to write poetry
I don’t feel the nerve anymore,
I was in a trance
You went with my friend, I’ll go with mine
(I hope I never see you again)

Every now and then
I’m haunted by memories
What happened to me
Just had a particularly uncomfortable flashback...

I'm unhappy in this life
For reasons I don't
For all I know
Swatting at straw men
And squiggles in my eye.

It's like I used to be able to see so much
It’s like I used to be able to feel so much
More than I should have been able to...
Infrared, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, ultraviolet
But infrared and ultraviolet were too much to bear
They were blinding me, crippling me
Too much of a good thing, I guess
So they gave me a pill to pop
That blunts the edges
And all I see now
Are yellow
and green
But I remember when I could see ultraviolet...

And then the day came,
when the risk
to remain tight
in a bud
was more painful
than the risk
it took
to Blossom.
