the bright light of the tv bleaches my eyes of any thought i ever conceived;  
A laugh track plays, as i slowly pull my chest to my knees.
my phone is screaming
and yelling
but i just leave it be.
I fuse to the couch and let darkness crawl over and cover me

until the roar of a laugh track sings me quietly to sleep
i use tv and other forms of media as escapism
I don’t watch the news for one simple reason
It’s stereotypes goths and punks
Not all of us are in the black occult
Not all of us are killers
Not all of us are either school shooters either


I don’t watch the Newfor one simple reason
They paint
People with mental health issues
In a very bad light
showcasing our bad sides


I do not watch the news for one simple reason
Foreign perpetuates hate
Anti-Semitism
Islam a phobia

Let’s turn off the TV said and think for ourselves as human beings as we are supposed to
Not as fearful robots and computers programmed to hate
The consumption of our heads and minds
devouring them until it is us
Eyes search and wander for the channel that speaks clear

I could stay in bed all day and be happy.
I could wear pajamas all day and be happy.
I could watch tv all day and be happy.
I could ignore people all day and be happy.
I could cry all day and be happy.
I could do nothing all day and be happy.

But am I happy
       or just depressed?

Medea,
Tell a vision,
You lie and we listen.

Medea,
Truth is fiction,
Make the lie our addiction.

Medea,
Sorceress in blue,
Tell me what is true.

Tell a vision to me,
Make the lie our reality.

Tell a vision to me.
The truth is a fantasy.

Goddess of illusion.
Tell a vision.

Cast a spell on me,
I am your zombie.

But more friends started showing up  
Blasts for every passing here..I dropped $280. A 40, a sixty a 20 could save me
It's not that crazy.
If you  could just pitch in tonight.we could make it right.

While you are asleep upstairs my little loves and the big one too,
should I watch Thomas, Jane Austen or Arthurian witches?
Chased by unconscious thoughts, the screen beckons to expel the blue.
While you are asleep upstairs my little loves and the big one too,
Netflix proposes in the stillness of the night and I miss you,
bubblewrapped under my ribs I hold our evening's joys and riches
while you are asleep upstairs, my little loves and the big one too,
should I watch Thomas, Jane Austen or Arthurian witches?
Triolet ABaAabAB, on waking up at night and switching on the TV for it to propose Thomas the tank, which was the last thing the children had watched.
What we watch read and listen to especially before bed plays havoc
in our minds
Also Feeds our heart .
My husband is an example of this.reading crime stories before bed apparently to wake up with heart palpitations for no reason.but he often reads disturbing crime stories I guess if we put cabbage in it also has to come back out .

This body's not eternal
and this mind just might be along with it
soul just might decay with the brain
Sparks of life become ash
and fertilize the lake and sands
where my last wish will flow
by who knows who will be
the last of my loved ones
You're my purest afterlife hope

I sit here in uncomfortable indecision
feeling every itch and twitch, T.V. off
trying to listen to the cellular hum
to reach peace of mind
give in to the fractals and functions
and blaze when it gets too bad

It's the present we forget
I'm always in-between doing this or that
waiting for inspiration
waiting for the stars to align
when my shuttle works fine
