Everything is quiet now
in the middle of the day
where misery has settled down
like bricks on my chest lay
and although I can’t make a sound
my voice has gone astray
I will not settle underground
tomorrow I shall wake
to soft sounds of the morning
like loved ones I have lost
reminders that my mourning
is not in vain but just
and in the shadows of my mind
to where I now so lay
forgive me father for I have sinned
relieve me of this day.
There is so much to live for
and so much we will lose in the process.
My heart aches at the thought of it
so much so that I often dive down
the wishing well in hopes of finding
anything tangible other than this loss.
But it is inevitable.
We will lose everything we touch
and in the end find ourselves
at the crossroads
with nothing but our souls to bargain.
No matter how much
people want you to believe
something is of great importance
remember that it’s still
just a bunch of people
shuffling their feet
trying to look important.
If you can manipulate life into a form
that suits your needs then wear it.
Or walk naked if you have to.
Winter is cold. Summer is warm.
Spring is boundless. And the Fall is inevitable.
In this life
the naked and clothed
are one and the same
some just get lucky
while others wear the blame.
What’s the point in saying anything
with so much more to say
than what you’re actually saying
you just kind of don’t think you do anymore
or perhaps you haven’t found the right words
because I could go on all day about it
so don’t lie to me kiddo
I could punch all the mirrors in the world
but it wouldn’t make a difference either way
that’s just a cop out and I’m taking the cuffs off.
obsessive compulsive times
in an even more
obsessive compulsive culture
so it’s no wonder
this obsessive compulsive content
isn’t anything more than
a like, swipe, and vine away
