City of Filth

Upon entering the room
I climb silently onto the bed
and stomp on the pillows
with my filthy boots
caused by drifting aimlessly
through city streets.
Lay your head down
on your dirty pillow
Fall asleep
in this city of filth.

A Certain Path

Truth distorts its way through time
Reality gives into truth
Do it for the comfort of others
Do it to satisfy yourself
I want to create glory in our connection
I can’t cheat myself of this perfect adventure
It is beyond words
Don’t turn it into an endless cycle of indifference
They could be farming out this ideal
A risk you take when you meet a stranger
Forgive yourself for your past resentment
Don’t suffocate on mundane principles of old
Create a wholesome intellect of the new you
Visualize a romance and then dive right in
Process your credibility into ecstacy!

Sad World

In a sad world
What do you see?
In a sad world
Fantasy.
In a sad world
Who do you want to be?
In a sad world
Love is still free.
In a sad world
Progress begins with me.

Laugh

Laugh because the walls are closing in.
Laugh because your luck just ran out.
Laugh because karma is coming for you.
Laugh because you’re ignorant and you know it.
Laugh because your ego has seen better days.
Laugh because you’re misunderstood (just like everybody else).
Laugh because you can’t handle criticism.
Laugh because your judgment is questionable at best.
Laugh because the thrills are cheap.
Laugh because your vices are betraying you.
Laugh because your life is becoming a cliché.
Laugh because your thought process is ugly.
Laugh because people think you’re strange.
Laugh because you don’t know how to cry.
Laugh because the world isn’t laughing.
Laugh because you can’t see the beauty.
Laugh because the beauty can’t see you.
Laugh because it hurts.
Laugh because it heals.
Laugh because it makes no sense.
Laugh because it makes perfect sense.
Laugh for all the wrong reasons.
Laugh for all the right reasons.
Laugh at the truth.
Laugh at the lies.
Laugh when you wear your perfect disguise.

Untitled

Staring at
wind sharpened skies
and colour schemes
at odds with moving shadows
Spreading a gift of waste
returned to the earth
to mark territory
and a bold moment in time
Searching for
a safe environment
to reveal
overwhelming eruptions
of irrational thought
Slowly building a shield
towards eternity
so I can sleep better
knowing I tried
to see reality
for what it truly is

Silence

We don’t trade in words
We trade in silence
I let your face do the talking
I will be a witness to your fate
Your dilemma won’t be cured by love
There is no logic to what you want
You don’t fit in with your concept of life
Your absurdity is no longer an alien concept
This densely populated area is weighing on you
Nothing turns you on like solemn rituals
A prison shower
A hospital bed check
A funeral procession
Your wild imagination come to life
Finally
A smile on your face
MY VICTORY

Curious Desire

Just relax
Translate your heart to me
Tell me what you need
Stop sabotaging your dreams
Your emotional anarchy is only sometimes useful
You are too good at keeping your intentions dressed in code
I want the walls to come down
Your world somehow excites me
It brings back remnants of childhood enthusiasm
Assimilate me into your confusion
Be free
Be honest with me
Be who you want to be
Just don’t overwhelm me
Sometimes I feel nothing

Indecisive

I’ll get around to it
It will be done eventually
Soon it will happen
It is a mystery I want to solve
I promise I’m working on it
It needs to get done
I hope I can do it
It might take awhile
There are things that are distracting me
I might need some advice on this
This is an unavoidable situation
It requires a certain amount of focus
Tomorrow sounds good
I’ll keep it in mind
I’ll do it when I feel like it
I’m really good at making excuses
This needs a certain dedication
This is quite a task
It might be more than I can handle
I’m not sure if I can do this
Do I have what it takes?
I’m starting to doubt myself
The outcome is improbable
This is starting to stress me out
Should I make time for this?
How important is it?
Maybe I’m just the victim in all this
It could be somebody else’s problem
Let’s go with that and call it a day

That’s How It Was

a torn flag
flapping in the wind
a testament to a far gone time
I witness this in silence
small tornadoes of leaves
dancing around my feet
there is peace here
plenty of open space
purity in the air
I can finally breathe easy
the delicate truth
guides me carefully
through the night
Tonight I will dream
like a child
Innocent and free
My happiness goes
unnoticed
