I am living, I am alive. I am still unsure as to what it is though. The best I can surmise, is that life is like a collage, a puzzle! Maybe one day it will all fit together.
Fated Bubble of Warmth We live within the Auspices of time Borrowed only To cajole a pleasant Place of comfort From the heckles And the baiting And nothing fates Each life that we Portray unless Crossing governors Of spite we Persist a melancholy bruise Defending positions Of the ego While shaking hands With demons Bargaining a fix Of Brown or Diamond White, Amphetamines and Cargo planes Affecting dopamine And chemistry’s Illusory and fantasy A hitch upon causality And be the peoples populous Echoing thoughts of sanctuary Sail the ships to freedom Dancing on the landscapes Of seas they call tranquillity Of non coherent thought, Navigate by sudden stars Sparkling like champagne The explosions gone All awry – the beckoning Of quandary the jibbing Past the compass Under swells And over peaks Out to sea Out to sea Out to sea Through a labyrinth of mind. The coming down From bloods of moons Lasts forever, Shaded and jaded Laden with guilt, And it wasn’t just enough Now you’re sitting in troughs Of depression with Co-dependency upon The chemicals you now Court to cancel fear, And it wasn’t near The brink of unknowns, It wasn’t near the drink That staggered home It wasn’t the love gone sour – It was ego, It was freefalling for a panic That you have to live a life, And now your wife, The dame you never met Sells honeysuckle sweets For a strangers fancy And your children, Are taken into care, And colder still is the needle That brings closer; A fainted bubble of warmth.
