  • (No structure, no rules, no limitations, no nothing; found these spilt thoughts on my bed, none other than woozy midnight thoughts)
    It’s hard to be
    So caught up between
    What you think
    And what you feel
    Like when you see your brethren
    Wonderstruck at the sketched face
    That is his Lady friend’s
    And the way she squints so detailed
    Or maybe her porcelain skin that
    Needs a new coating
    Of paint- but why
    Would that possibly be when his
    Artistic
    Perspective sees her only as a Greek
    Would sculpt a goddess out of
    Merely stone.
    Boom.
    ….
    In the world
    We co-exist
    We construct
    We conquer
    We concur
    We cease
    To exist
    For decades
    Or fractions of a second.

    I gaze perplexedly
    At the base of what forms
    Such a youthful companionship
    Yet, a thing is alack
    Oh yes,
    You.
    Your darker-than-dusk eyes complementing
    The wonderful, chiseled-featured face that is yours
    For the keeping
    And mine for the appreciating.
    Your goofy half-smile that reveals itself
    Like fireworks at midnight
    Clever words you manufacture from
    Gray slabs of matter
    To impress.
    I’m impressed.
    What can’t you do.

    Oh yeah. Teleport.
    Damn it.
    Confounded contraptions.
    Freaking blasphemy.
    Fucking unlucky.
    The 50/50 coin flips itself
    And functions identically like the half-full
    Half-empty glass.
    Jealousy.
