Tips: 1.75 INK Postby dealing with it on Mon Dec 23, 2019 10:01 pm

"Dream"

Watching everything
As it all blends together
Street signs with tidbits of conversations
Form the great Leviathan

It's how the world speaks to me
Disruptive and intrusive
I tap into the nervous system
Of all of society

I can no longer speak
For the call is too loud
I can only move my feet
And let it all sift through

I try to sit on a park bench
But the world thoughts never cease
Every single leaf that blows
Screams expletives at me

Night time is my time
Because the talking has ceased
And only the moon and stars
Tell me what to think

I am a ghost
Nobody is looking at me
I hear static through the air
It tells me what I am

I break into someone's yard
Through a crack in the fence
And toss stones around
Just to see if I'm seen

I only communicate
With the highest vibrations
But I can't tell if it's
Only my imagination.

All my life, is just a dream.

Tips: 0.50 INK Postby dealing with it on Mon Dec 30, 2019 8:36 pm

"Vulnerability"

We're all vulnerable
That makes us beautiful
Otherwise we're toxic
Our words are caustic
We turn our hearts cold
Instead of sharing the gold

Our vulnerability
Is our super ability
To tell our truths
Our souls are loose
From below, not above
Comes our special love

Some friends are close
But fewer than most
Can hear the pain
And are not drained
By being among
Those our stingers stung

So I share with some
My weakened tongue
Those who can't take the heat
Of my shuddering heart's beat
Won't feel in full
My gravity's pull

A room of family
A community
Come together
In stormy weather
To talk of life
And our long strife

But a single friend
To the very end
Is worth the trouble
Through all the struggle
Whether one or many
Is more than plenty.

If you can find only one
Let shine your sun
And be vulnerable
As much as you are able
Because nothing beats
A little honesty.

"Horror"

A certain horror
Has overtaken me
I must take the pills
So that I won't be
A gesticulating mess
An embarassment
With no control
My sanity spent

I feel like the Hulk
Hiding behind the calm
You wouldn't like me mad
I'm a ticking bomb
"My eyes have seen
The shadows and the gloom",
As Salvatore said:
"The inevitable doom."

A hospital stay
They call it a vacation
But after twelve weeks
It becomes your station.
Dream-like timelines
From Doctor Who
Hide in the phone-rooms
And you'll time-travel, too.

There's no way
To understand this distress
But sometimes stories
Help explain, I guess.
Madness is not
Like Call of Cthulhu
It's just-past-real
And almost seems true.

If you read the Scriptures
That will be your mind
So read good books
In prose and in rhyme.
Nothing I know
Is more depressing
Than a God-themed mutt,
A Messiah, undressing.

"An Agnostic"

If more people didn't know
And didn't have to own the truth
And more people didn't move
And fewer things had they to prove
And sat quietly in their space
And avoided the rat race
And believed one fewer God of man
And forgot about some divine plan
And scoffed at pseudoscientific press
And could tell theory from hypothesis --
And raw information from fact --
And on bullshit they didn't act
And understood their indoctrination
And the powers of their imagination...
How much farther could we go?
It's alright not to know.

Tips: 0.25 INK Postby dealing with it on Mon Jan 20, 2020 3:08 pm

"Boundaries"

When you cannot say no
Even when you want to
You need to build a wall

A boundary keeps you safe
If you must put it in place
You need to build a wall

Sometimes all you get is pain
From another one's friendship
You need to build a wall

Even family can be wrong
And can be toxic to you
You need to build a wall

Whether young or old
The pain can be so real
You need to build a wall

Self-care for mental health
Means a secure environment
You need to build a wall

Keep yours to yourself
And leave others to themselves
You need to build a wall

With all of these walls
Boundaries are secure
You need to build a wall
