That's What Scares Me:

If you asked me what I'm afraid of,
I'd say nothing I can think of,
But the truth is,
I'm afraid of time,
I'm afraid I'll fall out of line,
I'm afraid of what's next,
The future is such a pest,
Who know's what's to come,
I want to know I'm running from,
But nobody knows,
Nobody knows,
And that's what scares me,

a brief bright spark
in the black infinity of time
a single slow kiss
while galaxies collide
all of  creation
leading to this
kiss
this fuck

and then
in death
eternity will separate
us
forever
as if
we never were

Scary Me

the fact that I wish I could
cut you into tiny pieces
and feed you to the fishes
scares me

that fact that I wish I could
stab you in the back
and leave you to bleed
to death scares me

the fact that I wish I could
run the car over you
and back up and do it again
that scares me plenty

the fact that I am smiling
while I wish all evils
to rain upon you
scares me...

because basically I am a nice person
and that scares me.

As short as you want it to be just explain what you're scared of

poet Anonymous

Sick, Stupid, Poisoned (and Grateful)

I'm afraid of fear
it's dictating our direction
as we build another wall installed with cameras
for our protection
(still rejecting equality as a viable option
because somehow Marxism sounds worse than genocide
or global famine)
as our privacy and human rights
are trampled under our desire to be kept safe
from the terrorism our indifference birthed

it terrifies me that entire populations refuse life for work
and underpay everyone doing the jobs they left
food unfit for consumption
cleaning up dirt with poison
schools that don't know propaganda from information
parents donating their assimilated children to the system
in the name of love they strip them of individualism

our culture should re-examine civilization
and how it differs from corporate run corruption
and addictive consumerism
because technology has come too far for these levels of stupidity

the art is selling for billions and milk is cheaper than water
and it fucking petrifies me that people don't know why

I Feel Fine ( It's The End Of The World)

There are many things to fear
in this day and age
the gross poverty and inequality
all the suffering, war and bloodshed
fueled by corruption and greed


nothing new about slavery
or the elite few
profiting
off the misery of the lower casts
but to explain
one needs to take a look through history
many great nations have reigned
some for many centuries
just as the tide rises and falls
so to did empires like
Greece
Rome and Egypt
even Britain controlled
the suns span of the earth

Today
we find our selves
in the unique position
unwilling witness to anothers fall
this nation could hardly
be called a teen
as far as  age goes

I wonder
what their fathers would say
if they could see things today


Never though through out history
has humanity sat
unaware of  the potential global annihilation
this collapse could bring

Harsh
perhaps
perhaps not
the world is currently
on its knees
forced democracy
at the end of a gun
by the only country
to use a weapon of mass destruction
on a civilian population
not once but twice

Bound

I couldn't stay tied down
if it killed me.

Not by a person,
not by a feeling -
not with a favor
and not with skin peeling;
not underwater
and not on the ground,
never in music -
no, never in sound:
if something should bind me
from the life I adore,
if I can't know the flavors
I haven't explored;
if someone should blind me
to keep me from harm,
it's an inch I can't savor;
I'd claw at their arm:

I couldn't be bound
if I wanted or tried.

If I'm ever tied down
then I might as well die.

What i fear? me!

I'm scared to death that they're right i'm crazy.
Dr. After Dr. since age 15.
The obcene seems quite normal even appealing to me.
I fuck so good and like a fiend.
A freak of a fucked Obsessive being.
The obsession of more being the thing.
Not some fucked up obsessive routine.
Think OCD. you think of the obsession to clean.
I loathe the straight and anal sterility.
I do not however loathe anal, actually I say "yes please"
Me, gimme more drugs, sex, and drink.
Yep, i live in fear, the fear of fucking me.

S  o  l  i  t  u  d  e  
          Lured the    
          Madness  
          Flood in like a    
          River to the sea    
   
M  e  d  i  c  i  n  e  
          Poked the    
          Inner beast    
          Then the  
          Emotions got free    
   
I  n  t  i  m  i  d  a  t  e  d  
          By the    
          Hallucinations    
          And his  
          Tortured heart    
   
Q  u  a  i  l  e  d  
          Eyes of mine were  
          Unfortunate enough to  
          See his head    
          Blown apart

When we sleep we sleep different to cover eachother.
Like hugs and kisses, us.
As we're awake and work different to cover eachother.
A reflection of cooperation.
We can't live for someone else but we're a part of eachother.
We don't eat what we eat. We don't travel how we travel.
We don't listen to what we listen to in any condition that we're in.
Neither do we speak of it.
When we smell the same flower it smells different.
We're someone else.
You are you. I am me.
They are they.
We are we.
Balance is the level to live.
Yet fading.

the night sky
tastes of whiskey

the mattress dip
beneath his weight
