Words of calm should lull you into sleep, let you drop
Words of love should keep you warm, burn your toes
Words of pain should leave marks, scars forevermore
Words of promise should make chains, suffocate
Words of panic should drag against the floor, scrape
Words of misdirection should come with torn up maps Continue reading
It’s good to be caught in the web once again
Wrapped up in sticky tangles
Waving to the all the others
Hardened and coated in gunk
All my followers
That word, oh, it makes me feel powerful
All my friends
Especially the friends I’ve never met
And all of my posts which are part of the web
Free from it all, just who would I be?
And if they keep growing
The spider can rip off my head
I won’t need it in here, anyway.
There is a light in my life so bright I can no longer sleep through the darkest of days.
It never dims, and it never burns out.
It’s a light that pushes you towards it,
even through headaches
or through sleep deprived eyes
And so each day is brighter
Those LED light bulbs were a good idea, after all.
Glucose, caffeine, Day nurse, Pro Plus, Vitamin D, sugar filled treats.
Life through liquid, life through pills.
Oh man, I feel so totally alive.
There is a hole in my head, it’s leaking out my thoughts.
There is a hole in my head, and it’s sucking in my hair.
There is a hole in my head, and it lights up in the sun.
There is a hole in my head, I check it with a mirror.
There is a hole in my head and it follows me around.
There is a hole in my head, but you can still see my flesh
There is a hole in my head, and nothing can be done.
No hat, no comb over, no oils can take away that fact.
A hot air balloon floats in the sky, blocking the sun.
People run rampant, I’m looking for my gun. I’ll throw a rope to the sky, climb on high, bring back the light.
The rope won’t reach, my gun won’t fire, the balloon which has taken away all sight.
Instead I wait, pop some sleeping pills, pass the time till the hot air balloon floats on by.
Days pass, weeks pass, yet it stays up high.
As people adapt, the balloon floats off, as the sun burns our eyes, we long for the hot air balloon for the first time.
