Paul Sayer on A false call to the police but they were not caught out (57 minutes ago)
The first time
Is a pin prick
To feel yourself
You search your being
You are it:
Coursing through yourself
The second time
You search inside
Behind the corner shop
You find where he begins
But come back,
Stinking of rot
Void of thought
To feel what?
What are you searching for?
To begin ag...

Some time ago
My skin turned wooden
My feet moulded into one
And smudged the painted grid
On the marble floor
Another time I fell
And did not stop
I rolled right off the board
It was not a conscious decision
To spectate rather than participate
But it happened
As it does to many
Who give up on giving
When you undertake solely seeing
You relinquish being
But not feeli...

Dry and numb.
Grief cannot be duplicated, though it can be felt, again and again.
We’ll just go to sleep and never cry again. so it shall be dreamed, not wept.
It will fade, but right now, we sleep.
Numb and dry.

Sometimes i cant take it
I want to break it
What is it
Well i bet most of you would know it
You always want to throw it
I havent found a name for it
But let me explain it
Its that feeling of being numb
Its that feeling when you want to run
When death seems so close
When death seems so far
When life is not as fun
When you feel worthless
Then suddenly powerful...

My bed is still warm
When the next body rolls in
But I'm not
- Or his -
- Or hers -
And I can breathe
I am consumed
I am part of you,
Of someone that lives
I will be
Because I'm not apart
Just a part

You can misplace your mind
You can't forfeit your mind
When you've built a fort for your mind
Mine is bulletproof,
I can stay outside of myself
I can step outside of the world
I watched us having a conversation
From my window panes
Through the heavy glaze
It made me feel some type...

Trapped in an industrial freezer
the shelves announce no room for me here.
As the walls start to cave in,
the fear and numbness begin.
Crys only heard among these four walls
searching for escape before the night falls.
Piles of ice scrape to the floor
no longer the nails that have been there before
banged and bruised, knees ever so sore.
Soles that I walk, no longer bar...

White noise is the cloak my mind wears
to protect me from its darkness.
I'm always elsewhere,
In a place of emptiness.

I’m wrapped in cling film I’m sure of it:
paralysed and mute, I feel it;

We were lame and we were young,
Walking in the woods,
While singing our song,
Never in my dreams, felt anything wrong,
Thought you were always coming along,
Do not remember where exactly I lost you,
My eyes searched for you in heavy fog,
I continued my journey amidst the rocks,
Shivered through-out the night,
Darkness was blocking my sight,
Always thought that you wer...

I'm sitting here, trapped, frozen in time
Head imploding, finally losing my mind
Nowhere to run, bound and confined
To the prison within, my unconscious mind.

It's been a while since I've written
It may be 'cause it's been a while
Since I've really felt anything at all
One little white pill
"It'll take all the pain away"
But the dealer never told me
My new friend was here to stay
So before you say yes
There's something I need to say
You'll lie awake wishing for pain
At least then you'll feel something
But it'll never fucking come

At first love was a pump, a needle,
Eyes wide when your high
...Or see someone you like.
Stifled, we always rivalled
Till no more, the beat became sore
And we spiralled, overdosed,
Hot headed, cold blooded.
Passion became blown out,
The anticlimax of a candle...
Like the heroin ran through her heart,
Like the cocaine contorted her chest,
Like the salvia had shaken ...

I’ve got amnesia and I don’t know where I am. It came down upon me
and I’ve become so confused – can’t you help me to find my mind?
Am I alone in my own helpless world with watery images blurring my
I feel a soggy mess, my limbs weighing me down, unable to do anything.
I just sit here numb to the world wondering when Ill be p...
