Blue Cocoon

Within these walls, my blue cocoon,

climb dirty plates and coffee cups.

My paintings hang uneven, slant,

on crumbling walls, whose cracks i feel.

_

A button's pushed: the T.V sleeps.

The metal God sleeps standing,

as a ghost of night that dreams of days

on an unmade bed in limbo lays.

_

Beneath the sheets my shadow rolls -

I twist and turn in turmoil.

My pulse pumps out a beat beserk.

In a sea of sweat i'm drowning.
