"Where Did I Go?"

-

I left my mind on a frying pan

And then I cried

So far, these ways of living are sad

Puts me at the edge of my life

Bounded with pie in the look of an eye

Escapes me savagely at the mention of cost

I could look God in thee eye, and still

I would feel innocent

But sharp frost bites me in my neck

And I crawl back into a wall

Endangering myself

And myself alone

To the rhythm of haunting flies

Shot thru the skies

Ruined, thru and thru

None of me can tell why

Thee Earth shook and scattered rain fell

When the creatures of dark

Took over life as we know it

I only faltered like roots

Pulled up from underground

No meaning can capture the loss

That has no insight to it all

It all came down from above

Never to be held onto anymore

But whatever happens to pieces of thoughts

Only gets lesser and lesser

To the sounds of raining gasoline

The time machine now zaps me
