Poem by: brucek

Summary

some very short poems that i always hoped that i could add to but they kept saying to me "stop fussing with us. we're finished. leave us alone." and since i always listen to the voices in my head i left them alone. it's not my fault!

Smoke rings danced above my head

In the quiet of my room

I watched them fade away instead

Of dancing with them.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Death.

The dying death.

That came flying,

Blood

Dripped

Black.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A forest of chairs darkens the hall.

The guests have left them growing roots.

And even the wood beneath my feet

Seems scattered with fallen silent leaves.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My fears still chase me down the hall.

Looking back,

I see their shadows

Flying darkly at my heels.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Seven sins await my lover,

Long and lush and deep.

Wonderful abandonment,

Joy and peace and sleep.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm gonna dive into your consciousness

And summersault your mind.

Your seventh dream's gone borrowing,

You're a rusty year behind.
