Crawl into a ball

Post by creativesoul » September 9th, 2021, 4:07 pm

I saw a skeleton
At the bottom of a well

I put dates in my mouth
And slurp an afternoon coffee

I have had a few friends die lately

Famous last words and everything

Ever since I just want to smoke

Everything

Tobacco ; weed
- eat some mushrooms
Walk around outside

It’s nice to
Have Uranus in my position
I am still within some world that does not seem congruous
With anything ever
Random

Now my lungs are like “ fuck you”
So
I have to erode slowly into the mud
Let this sink in

Cigarettes are quicksand
And you are sinking fast

I should be speaking Spanish by now
Profound thoughts and feelings
With perfect Chilexpress grammar


I should be thin and fit

Instead I have to ask for the angels to let go of the cords of long ago
In my ovary
In my left kidney
And the lady will come with the magnets
And out of the well
Comes the water
The fresh sparkle of cleansing spirits



I’m sorry about that
That being all I can do
To prepare for the future
“ you were kept apart from others”

I like to think,
we are all doing the best we can do

:D 8)

a nice running account
of things as they come
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

Change starts small. And it's hard. Sometimes does not take. But it's possible. Little changes in direction. And again. And again. Love and loneliness twine the human condition. Much love to you.
