I'm eating my own objections and
it tastes like sitting for hours
on a cold bathroom floor
staring listlessly at my dirty hands.
Choking down elaborate excuses
and it feels like a procrasintator's nightmare
just wanting to bang my head
against the wall a few times
but damnit, I keep missing...
Swallowing my trembling pride
and it smells like my thoughts boiled over
and cooked all my feelings in the process
of their memorable/forgettable trip
to just beyond my reach in my mind.
Gnawing on this crippling indescision
and washing it down with my insecurities
looks like another perfect portrait
specifically made to cover up the peeling paint
on the walls of the gallery of my follies.
The groaning table swings around again and
I swear that I'll make this the very last time
I partake of a single morsel from it
I've had more than enough heartburn to keep me warm...

Late Nights
Words of my own invention
Grace the page
Screwed up paper balls
Decorating the carpet
With a wearily festive air.
Aware of nothing
But the words hovering
Near the tip of my pen
Coy and teasing and almost
Utterly impossible, in almost
Every respect...
Sleep throwing gauzy cobweb
Sheets between us
A softly clinging and
Surprisingly substantial barricade...
Which way is true surrender?
:iconnoiamnot:noiamnot 3 5
Like torn out
Crumpled up
Neatly lined
Notebook paper
Can't even
Isn't that sad?
Am I really that
To you? To me?
Does it even matter
Now? Let's throw that
In the little box of no
Color that says
Don't think
Don't talk.
Stilted nonsense
of insipid conversation
(How I despise it)
Writing for the sake of
Writing a distraction
Yes another one
I've worn the others
Clean through except
They're not clean now.
Me and my own, now
In this uncomfortably warm bed
With ink-splotched covers
(Don't tell my mother).
Pale papery material and
Thin bent bamboo
Spherical-circular light-shade
Wouldn't call it a lamp-shade
(Would you?)
I don't always have to
Make sense, silly.
Kindly refrain from
Derailing my train of
It's very hard to catch
Once it's gone off...
