snap your marlboro bones &
grind them into watercolors -
bay-water boy, paint your brains
on the wallpaper like a sinner's
sermon; you won't wilt the way
that deities do, you solipsist:
you're just a suicide drone.
maybe wanna blow my brains out maybe just want out of this head & the drum beat of cheer-up pills says it gets better but i'm only getting worse

i'm so dizzy get outta my head/tell your congressmen i'm a migraine away from destroying government property/for a writer i really haven't a way with words/when living in your own body makes your skin crawl

I don't know what to say about this,
I just want you to know that your poem cuts yet another person deeply.
I love this so much it's going straight into my favorites. <3

You're very good. But, you have to stop making me feel things. :stare: I don't wanna relate to this at all.

Absolutely amazing, this one touches home with me. The first four lines are my favorite.

This is beautiful, and really portrays the self destruction. The line about the sinner's sermon and being a solipsist is particularly interesting (i had to google what it was haha but the concept itself seems to play well with the ideas in this piece)
