Til the Noise is Gone

What do I do when the music is gone? Where do I go from here? Who's next to stand at the microphone? What do they want me to hear? What do I do when I'm all alone? What will control my fear? What do I do when the music is gone? Where do I go … Continue reading Til the Noise is Gone

Bread and Blood and Love

After all was said and done I'm a bastard and a bastard's son I'm just a loser and an ugly waste of air After all, it's time to go I've left us all, for all you know For you and yours, it's them who've never cared But it matters not to me That all I've … Continue reading Bread and Blood and Love

Pain-Eater

Just like the drugs that you feed to your brain; Even your tolerance grows for the pain. The more that you feel, the more it will take. So I eat it for breakfast whenever I wake.

My Wish I’d Wish

If by some grand impossibility The wish I wish the most were true Not for power, fame, or gold I'd ask But other minds from which to view Broadened sight would bring humility Sudden wealth, but disillusion Peace of mind is sharpened vision Fame and power, but illusion True wealth is measured not in gold … Continue reading My Wish I’d Wish

Contextual Duality

It's not the logic that escapes me Nor is it criticality But of the thought's amalgamation Contextual duality It's not the means that I am missing Nor is it technicality It's broken somewhere in transmission Excessive flare, formality It isn't thinking that befalls me Nor manual dexterity The absence of direct translation Blurs all but … Continue reading Contextual Duality
