Dear Life

Oh how these vapid years
Have passed by,
Drawn out and dragging with them
The haunted remnants of my psyche,
And as their cold, blistering wake
Cuts through me
I am left unfeeling, unnerved
And at your door,
For in your absence I have floundered
In these icy depths
And seek now
The sweet relief of your rescue

Double Slit Experiment

Lying down in the tub,

billowing cumulus clouds of crimson,

lethargy coming on slowly,

Made a choice I will

never have again…

You want me to explain…?

Sincerity and genuineness

Is impossible for me…

Just a big reaction to

the fragmented throng.

Tried to excise my

coping mechanisms…

exacerbated by ego

and erroneous perceptions

of corpulent truths.

You won’t forgive my indolence…,

But you don’t know me.

I am very busy…

At the molecular level.

The Machine

The cogs and wheels
of life turn at speed,
each gear

perfectly in line,
manoeuvring the which way
and that way of humanity, heeling
like a boat,

each part tested and
refined, with precision
and order,

but some part’s are mysterious.
We can’t reach them.

Schizophrenia is like a spanner
in the works.
It malfunctions,
but these parts are
made of titanium.
it’s hard to crack
them, though these
‘gremlins’ don’t
break the machine.

And they are
timeless, being as old as humanity.
They are not efficient,
but they have a purpose.
They are not part of
a bad design.
Instead they perform many
tasks, the bastion
of morality, the prophet
of spirituality, of which its by-
product is love and death.
They test the rigours of life,
in the system, and
when the system turns rogue,
and works against us,
each shoddy bit
twists and breaks and
rusts but it is these
few who shut it
down.

Popularity

I have to convince the world
of who I am,
to become somebody,
not the odd man in dark sunglasses,
the psycho killer,
the benefit scrounger,
these streets are paved without
gold.
I am the lion of madness,
an owner of words,
farmer of doubts,
I want to spread love,
and sow the seeds of hope
but you see the mad me,
the man without a
face, a scythe hangs over my head,
we can share a thought on mankind
we are the sane,
the same I mean.
I am alone, stumbling with
my words now, they disown me,
perhaps we can share a moment,
now it’s gone.
Will you write me a
sonnet, of the way we are?
For I am yours, you
are mine, a communion
of life.
