Bedroom Thoughts

A Boy With Roses

"I don't know," 

I seem unsure, going back and forth

Why am I tied to misery? 

At any moment I could veer anywhere

My life has always been jam packed with doom and gloom

I guess I blow things out of proportion

Like I'm narrating a story for a stranger

There's always a silver lining


One time I believed crazy things

One time I got into an argument with sanity

Last year I turned twenty 

A light bulb went off like a firework

But I don't feel right, I feel like I'm dead inside

In a gelid state

Have you ever wondered what does it feel like to be gone?

Numb and shapeless like the sky

I can only imagine

I think about death all the time, somehow

I wonder when will my lifetime end

Like a swan song?

I'm a broken gramophone

A tautological poem

An open wound, with tin cheekbones

I footle, sadder than Meretseger

Higher than Sinai


I live, forgetting in the webbing

Beer frothing

Three days before one month after Lammas

A comedian fails on the set of his debut gig

Yeah, it's embarrassing.
