I named my dog anxiety or wait, is it the other way around?
'cause "he's" the the only one who's thinks it's something he should be upbeat about
(yeah we don't call my dog "it". not in my poem)
I ask questions when I don't even want their answers
To see if I matter enough or should I just embrace my cancer
I look at anxiety and he's wagging his greyish (anxious) tail.
I almost imagine my pendulam's ghost who migh be back to pay me my requital.
(by the way I flushed my wall clock last evening)
Time's a like a rodent you see?
As long as I'm aware it exists I can't fall asleep
I'm afraid he's nibbling my home bit by bit
Still I make no moves against it,
infinite sudden realizations keep me from throwing fits
But every once in a while I throw a hand here and there and attempt a kick
Yes I'm just 20
Yes I'm scared of getting old
Yes I hate it, yes I hate time.
Even though I've been told it's just a concept
But so is sorrow, love, joy and depression instead of death
Maybe it's why we long for things we can see and feel on our skin.
Emotions can't be trusted.
But then again humans beings aren't any better.
I go for it anyway after bullshitting myself and you all.
I throw a punch and he stumbles as I prepare to grasp my depression by his throat before it dawns on me that it's dark matter, crust of a black hole.
I'm aware you think I'm nuts
Who wouldn't though,
I act like I'm modern-day Shakespeare when I'm no match to a street bum
I'm a hunter/predator in social gatherings
I hunt/prey (on) for personalities
not to cage them in,
but to move into them
Like those hotel rooms we resort to when we wish to
illude ourselves and the world,
staggering or running away from who we are.
