the long, long night has finally given way to brightest of days a sunscape of a sky
superstition is dead and faux spirituality they took all the bible thumpers out back and threw up ropes as high as their hopes for what comes after this life
they'll see soon enough
poverty is abolished and hunger is a problem of the past they lined up the bankers they lined up the hedge funders and stock brokers and let rounds loose dropping faster than the market they once manipulated
and the merchants of death were given what they sold a tomahawk, a javelin, and an a-bomb to be sure
when we root out the cancer that has slowly enveloped our domestic landscape, to lay down fresh soil to lay down new sod
The past two days were recklessly engorged with alcohol. Intoxication has become habitual. Each weekend, drowning one's self in an illusion of joy and folly; The jester entertaining not Kings nor Queens, but the ****, the weak, to deceive the empty crowd in my mind that I matter to someone. But matter is fleeting and we, myself and the abyss, understand the plight of today; waking up to nothing-- the empty abyss for which I am well acquainted with. Simply put, I am revisiting my old home from a not so distant past. The only difference between then and now is the relentless bottoms of empty glasses and a false sense of security and composure.
1 page of my thoughts a day to prevent my head from exploding!
why would you smoke a cigarette but leave half of it dropped onto the sidewalk?
“our cigarette butts leave signs,” you told me, “I threw it there to let others know that I can control my bad habits.”
this is who you are. you’re the type of person who leaves cigarette butts on concrete to scream “I was here.”
you’re the type of person who purposefully lives an unfinished life for the world to wonder what you would’ve done if you had more time.
this was the same way you left me. halfway through our dreams and goals, only to find out that I loved you wholeheartedly, obsessively, and recklessly, while you walked away with a mouthful of tobacco smoke and halfway love.
