forgive these
rorschach nerves &
mercury veins -
i am no tragedy boy,
but i have self-decay
down to an art.

this tar tongue only starts
marlboro conversations &
self-ignition;
i only start fires.
full title: oh, i know how to be a waste of grey matter with no self-esteem

Fire as a feeling can be cleansing, from its ashes can rise many things.
May you find that after ashing so much you one day rise free of what you have been trying to burn way.
:zen: 

Oh and also, by the way-
nice poem. ;)
I like it, and would like to read more of your work.
read and smoke

This, my dear, is absolutely stunning. So short, but not too much, that it leaves me wanting more, and with a punch so blunt, my lungs are sputtering. I really need to read more of your work here pretty soon--and oh have I been meaning to--but when I have more time! I, personally, like the option of lingering over pieces for hours, if I so desire, so when I have the proper day, I will probably wander over to your gallery :heart:
This whole piece is just wonderfully created, everything fitting together in ways I wouldn't expect, but that excite my mind. That.. and I feel I can relate in some twisted way that I find myself wanting to cradle these words to my chest and just remember how to breathe.

Congratulations. You definitely deserved the DD, in my opinion! :rose:
Best wishes, and keep writing your beautiful words.

Congrats on the DD. Such a short piece says so much, I'm impressed and pleased to read a few times.
It's possible we've all been there (if old enough) and it'd be great to have such self-awareness then.

that's amazing, i had to read it 4 times to process the whole thing and i'm still not sure i've fully realized it yet... it's like it's physically dripping with inky, tar-infused emotion... it's beautiful.

i tend to fave and rarely comment.
but that's only because your pieces are so effective at arousing different emotions
that words fail to describe them really.
so amazing work as always.

What a way to paint such a dark, inky picture heavily weighed with negative meaning! The last line of sentence really gets you thinking that maybe all that dark imagery can eventually become fuel for something else. :iconclapplz: Well done!
