Writhing, wroth and seething anger. From this fool arose the urge to strangle. Fiery hatred burns forth like the breath of a dragon. An all consuming wrath that overflows the flagon. From this worthless, living man lies the issue. As I choke the very life from his dying brain tissue. From this mental fantasy I finally awake. Taking a life - Ah! what a piece of cake!
I was on Facebook and saw a post where someone was challenging people to write a poem using the words dragon, strangle, cake and brain tissue. So I thought for a while and wrote a little bit. Then this is what I finally ended up with.
Every castle turns to sand Every form and all the land And it's all been sand before Gracing some alien shore But what I find sublime What isn't bound by time What dies as it is wrought Moments made up of thought
Don't imagine what it's like to be with me Because I'm not an easy person to be with I will tell you I won't cheat But you will think I am lieing I will not make you feel secure Because when you ask me about my day Or why I dropped off the face of the earth for hours on end I will tell you I don't remember And I'm only partially lieing because I don't want to tell you that my mind was in the clouds and the characters in my head i find more important than you But don't take this personally because I don't find many in reality more important than the people I dream up So while you assume I'm cheating I'm digging craters in my bedroom floor pacing around my room taking to myself But I'll tell you I don't remember Because that's so much easier than explaining the turmoil going on in my brain
I lift my head up from the bow A risk to take just yet Iron caves have rusted Surround and keep me warm To leave here now frightens me so But to stay will do the same Years and year so dream to return Forever I sorley yearn To speak you and to find you Is the only vision I can see Your hand reached out to mine So calmly and serene To step over that threshold Into the safety of always Where we dance in memories past Laugh as we always have
They say "time flies when you're having fun." But I don't remember having any fun. And I know I'm not the only one. I remember working. Fighting about money. But, for the life of me, I don't remember my kid being much bigger than a bunny. I remember being stressed in great detail. I even remember daydreaming about getting a boat and sailing away. But of all the things I wish I could remember, I wish I knew where the time had gone. Where my life had gone.
it has been a while since i've sneaked some alcohol but i don't worry, that's okay i want to feel good tonight like every other day dullness brings fear and the endless ******* rot i feel i've left this place too much like each friend i've never sought i don't even have to start it anymore it happens just so easily like my body knows i need to escape like i live inconceivably
I joined a support group, Like I told myself to. We lurk in the shadows of the evening. If you glance around the circle, You can tell each person’s real age by what they say, Like the rings in their throats. While they uncomfortably clear their throats. And it’s so, Unfathomably depressing, To sit there and think, Is this all life is? The hot glare of the sunlight, Enveloping your shoulders and it’s uncomfortable. And it's your turn, And you do exactly what you’re trying to stop, Run face first into the calm of the storm, Pleading, like a lost son, Take me. And she takes you back, like she always does. And you get up and leave.
