Thee Idea

-

It's been on my mind

This thought

__that bubbled

____and boiled

______it's way into the foreground

The rushing springs of life

Lurking about an evil world

Where people laugh

__and die

____and kill

______and lay each other in bed

Hoping to go mad

__only from within

If I heard the plain crash

What would be the purpose?

It's this noise all around

The voices

__that taunt me

____and rob me

______of my own thoughts

Just to read them aloud

__for all the public to hear

When I know what is wrong

__I will fix it

Until then, I'll bask in the death

__that is before me

Wondering what is coming for me

My eyes may see nothing

But my heart can sense the pain

__from a mile away

About to drag me into the darkness

__and fuck my brain

____eat chocolate

______and melt away

The way I will die

__is so unknown to me

The way I don't find out

__until it is upon me

____just puzzles my thinker

And only one way of dying

__is now the thought at hand

I hold this thought

__and cradle it in my head

Rock it back and forth

__until I am dead

The thought of "dying naturally"

And "how it should go"
