"Live"

-

I'm a brain

Multiplying, creating cracks

I'm a heart

Dividing personalities

I'm a soul

Disordered in reality

I'm a man

Crazily withdrawn from fantasy

How undone

Can life get, now that you're apart from me?

How insane

Do feelings emerge so heavily

That I fall down

Fumbling so easily?

I can't see where I have been

Before I became human

All my dreams have disappeared

Of any future happening

Why does the present exist like this

When this is not how I saw it coming?

For, when I bleed into a high

Coming down's not planned

Ecstatic rushes falter

Normality comes back again

But if this is how sanity strifes

Why is my past repeating?

Am I too stupid to learn?

Am I too young to have my future now?

Am I too much uninvolved with the world?

Am I too stuck in a book to live?
