"Distractions"

lately, i find myself looking for distractions from everything in my life. in fact, right now, there's nothing i dread more than being left alone with my thoughts. my mind wanders into places that i wish it would never go; places that make me choke on all the words that i'm just dying to say. and i don't know how to fix it. i've tried tying up every one of my thoughts with nickel strings and film reels. i've tried painting them all white and i've tried scribbling them all out. i've tried just about everything i can think of to distract myself from this somber room, but they're all so ****ing temporary, and i'm just so ****ing restless to get my mind away from the god-awful places that it wanders to when i'm left all alone with my thoughts; the places that are always lit by nothing more than the dim, haunting glow of a crescent moon. and i can't stand living at night anymore. i need the sunlight to wash over my cataracts. i need the ****ing rain, the snow and the wind to lick at my wounds until they've been sterilized. i need something more than just an empty room and a canvas that i've painted over a thousand times, because when i'm left with this painting full of so many glaring mistakes and the sloppy jobs i've done in an attempt to fix them, it reminds me of the fact that i'm just going to make each and every single one of those mistakes a thousand times again. it just reminds me that no matter how many distractions i find from this overworked canvas, there will always be those ****ing mistakes and their clumsy cover-ups to guide me back to all those cold and tired places that are lit by just a crescent moon; all those places that make me choke on all the words i'm just ****ing dying to say.


"20mgs of Orange Coated Let Down"

Pills are depressing
when you question
why they make you feel
the way they make you.
With those meds, having
nothing to look forward to
feels like a special moment
that you know will end to soon.


I catch her sliding a packet into her pocket,
"What are those?"
And she just smiles making it seem
like this is just an innocent hobby.

"Umm...it's some kind of cold medicine,"
she said it in a cute innocent voice,
like she was hoping I wouldn't notice.

"And how many did you take?"
"I've had four packets,
and there's two in each...
so I've taken...eight."


I drop it, because I feel like
I have no right to tell her
what to do.
But after she came down,
she promised me she'd never do it again,
because I'm more important than the drugs.

That made me feel invincible,
but just like the pills,
I question why I feel good,
and it makes the feeling disappear.
I should have made a difference sooner.



"Exploration #3 - Heuristic"

I've see things begin and end with a
full stop.
Ripples, resound; echoes distilling drapery,
like moisture from the lips,
stolen by your fingertips.
I never saw anything moving,
or sync.
but I knew by the tremble of your eyes
you wanted to.

I dreamt of a caisson; decompression deep, centralised
between the love
and life lines on my palm.
Yet neither go as far off the edge
of my hand; off the edge of
the world: from
its axis to empiricism,
as to predict the future, or signal a warning across oceans
of lightning loved swells...
So...I...
follow
your artery to the [ tip ] of your tongue, where rests a
full stop,
beneath a vertical dash of dismay, latched
against your hollow fissures were the remnants
from a turn of phrase.
Something
on
saviour!
It's always the subtle things we miss...

Whisper nothing sweetheart, our words will only kill us,
lets just say we both knew what we were
thinking,
hand in hand 'till the end,
as we took a decadent step, after years spent condescending ourselves
from our cliff face origins.


Small

I always thought it'd be funny
to see what life would be like
If I were one inch tall.

I'd have to struggle to do
the simplest of tasks
to find food would be a challenge
as would finding the raw materials
to construct my own
fossil-fuel power plant.

I wonder
if the smaller you are
the harder it is to destroy things.

If that is true
I wish I was as small as an ant
and maybe you'd wish you were to.
