Deep underground is dead! Long live deep underground!

Thoughts in the ocean    
a mile deep    
I surround myself    
in my submarine       
 w/ books    
a few friends    
and my natural companions    
I would rather die here, unknown amongst all of you    
when the history is read    
I will be on the sidelines    
exactly where I wanted to be    
I have a desire to have people identify    
w/ my work    
It gives me such validation    
when I read/hear/see art that reminds me    
even if I'm not like me peers    
and I don't fit in,    
neither does this person    
and over time here, I have found    
my fair share of weirdos      
13,Alip (rip),Devilish    
Keys and Gloves, Pigeon    
it's always how it is to me    
but like the voyeur I must confess some jeaolsy    
that is until I read the vacant, vain    
and UTTERLY superfluous poems  
that get regular traffic here    
I don't need DU facebook type friends    
no, that doesn't matter    
I've reached my level of confidence    
and found my skills, and when I recieve feedback    
it is of the utmost support    
And for that I would continue a thousand years      
of being unknown to the pseudo's,vidax's and heslops      
of this world.    
for the stroke for stroke sickens me    
and to be popular under those terms    
those high school    
watercooler terms...    
to quote from someone who continues to inspire me:    
"I'd rather be dead than cool"
