Understanding Has Forgot Abut Me


I dream of my big break

Just a tray of sugar cubes

And no medz to stop thee effect

My undomed thoughts of a Heaven

__full of powdered puff dreams

____awaits me

But I've no reason to believe

That I could be mentioned out there

Out there

Is a world

Radiant with power

And meaning

To telescope the wonders

Puts no tension on myself


For how long

__can I look in the mirror

And not crack?

How long

__can I throw up

____in my favorite toilet

______and see my face

________reflected in my own pukey waters?

I won't say "I don't know"

For, saying such words

Would slap the smile off my face

I'm not walking out of my sanity

I could be blamed


I could be blamed


Is it my own hope?

I lost you

You gave me up

I threw that hope away

With jealousy

If my headache is enraged

I may as well be stepped on

I may as well modify

All that I can

Smash the Hell out of all that I can

If I am not a man in thee eyes

__of this pathetic world

Then I'm out of it

For good

Brick walls will laugh at me

But only in my brain, right?


Stones have more of a mouth

Than ANY of you!

You can throw me out of society

But your silence only makes me wander

Wander to the depths of my own madness

If it's O.K. with you

That what you do around me

__destroys my life

Then why am I a pain

__to even be an existence

____in the plans of what

______you feel you have to demolish?

Do you even know what you want?

'Cause I don't wanna know it for you
