Another day
mikecccc Feb 27
Life is short
so they say
they say A lot
billions of seconds
leaking from my hourglass
staunch the bleeding
thats not plausible
anyway it's just Tuesday
Life is short
so i'm told
but don't worry
it's only relative.

To the side
another everything
to the other another
the only difference is degrees
A little better A little worse
Could I fill the shoes
of the best version of me
would it be wrong
to steal from myself
I don't have A goatee
So I can't be the evil me.

We the people
Can't agree
Not even to disagree
Be right or be left
South or north
I can't say
United states
Without smiling.

They fail

amazing as it is
it gets so boring.

Who am I To say
all the faithful
are fools

A nonbeliever
could be more diplomatic

Respecting your right
to believe untruths
how long can that last
can we agree to disagree
on the fundamentals of reality
historically never very long.
something nothing
in this day and age
does it really matter

What wouldn't I give

For a little bit more

Where does it end
The wanting
When you have enough
What is enough.
You need lessons
Enough is taught
By ma pa
And society at large.

A noose of cars
waiting to order
waiting for orders
time is wasting
while the crew scrambles
"this is unacceptable"
the frequent flyer
reminds me.

the calm voice
mikecccc Mar 2018
Who is that creature
I can hear the calm voice
but can't see the body
how can you be still
in these shaky days
are you calm
cause you're joking
are you an actor
are you a fool
can I be one?

It's easy to mock
mikecccc Jan 2018
I see something silly
I laugh
Serious sincere
I see deep naivety
Dreamer dear friend why
I try to ask
But the laughter won't stop.

In half a decade
Where will you be
Having consulted
My crystal ball

Harbinger says
the end is nigh
but it always is
each day it's closer
does that matter
why fear the inevitable
cause it's scary
some days.

I want the truth
but you know
you can't always get
what you want
so i'll accept A decent lie.

Troubling dream
mikecccc Sep 2017
Bubbling cauldron
Of the unconscious
Produce something nice
Or if your feeling generous
All I see in the dark
Is vagueness.
Sep 2017 · 174
mikecccc Sep 2017
I saw you today
For the first time
The hundreth time
But the first time
I really saw
you are not
Who I thought
Suppose that's my problem.

mikecccc Sep 2017
after the end
what will I see
a groundhog day loop
I fear
it sounds hellish
repetition makes me twitchy
but burning alive forever
doesn't sound fun either
what about nothing
nothing sounds nice
it would probably grow old
suppose i'll see.

black pool
pull me down
fill my hollow chamber's
with something
words would be nice
good ones please
I would sacrifice my mind
at the inkwell alter
if only I could find
the right guide.

Seen from afar
The blurs dance
A gray kaleidoscope
If you will
Even if you don't
Is it an
Equal view or apathy
Does it matter
Would contacts
Make it better.

White nationalists on the lawn
not really new
my neighbor proudly waves
A confederate flag
but they aren't on TV
trump was unhelpful
monocles fell in surprise
we can all agree
on nothing
nothing new.
many can agree
for the moment

It shouldn't matter
mikecccc Aug 2017

A sincere shrug
it is what it is
why is that?

the ghost left
mikecccc Jul 2017
you were never here
and now
you're gone
what could have been
never was
never will be
always more figments
maybe one that's wittier.

can you unlearn
mikecccc Jul 2017
as in to remove
what you have learned
the wrong coping technique
I suppose you never forget
just learn something new
to cover it up
for however long
the new way works.

I shall away
mikecccc Jul 2017
We all shall one day
but for me
today is the day
the sun shines
the crowd is constricting
today is the day
But then many days
seem like good ones to away
there is no hurry
perhaps tomorrow.
still too repetitive

fuzzies buzz
little benign
looking things
those fuzzies
nothing like bees
more like roaches
infesting the mind
they don't want out
simple things fuzzies
they dine on drive.

towers of clutter
block the halls
make a maze
of an old abode
and an old soul lurks
somewhere within
it was never any good
at letting go.

where should it be
mikecccc May 2017
I left my heart at home
I wouldn't want it interfering
with my work
but I could never leave
my cellphone behind.

perish the thought
mikecccc May 2017
It did
the thought died
for a time
Should i say
it was resurrected

no one in particular  
someone special
able to bring to mind
long forgotten things
what a gift.

he saw
mikecccc May 2017
the scars
on my arms
embarrassing reminders
he saw them
how can I defend myself
from the judgment
or the pity
actually he saw nothing
just staring at a muffin
and cursing internally.
May 2017 · 240
mikecccc May 2017
He just stared through me
seeing what he wants
beats seeing what he has
i'm guessing.

A dance
A game
this play
it has wide appeal
and a substantial
Can see why
too much drama
that is yet too little

Glory days
mikecccc Apr 2017
Those were the days
my days in my prime
just a handful of sand
done but i'm alive
because for to
dwell on better days

the light the giants
run from anything

but any of it could
there's enough crumbs

mikecccc Apr 2017
I find myself
with nothing to say
that is to say
unable to express
what I want to say
am I letting down my muse
or is my muse
letting me down
has it retired
to wherever mute muses go.
where do they go
somewhere too quiet

what I found
mikecccc Apr 2017
I went to the city
and found that
the tough decisions
from home
were something to laugh at
when this place becomes home
will I laugh to.

I abuse you.

it's not all lies
it's mostly

that's arguably better.
and lies
and delusions

What if
mikecccc Mar 2017
Your life
was a threat
not threatening
by existing
but the idea
of having you're life
was a warning
would you be defensive
would you just shrug
would you turn things around
would you could you.

Winter's crown

madness and power
bound in gold
a wish for safety was made
they are too far gone to suffer
probably not what they meant.
