tales of people i used to know...


Fall-Out


So there's about three hours then?
I don't want to see you, Krafty,
for I know that when I look in your eyes
I will see fear.

And hate, and disgust,
Everything you try to keep a lid on
Yet the steam escapes anyway,
And the pot is shaking fiercely.

Not a word
Quiet as a pin-drop in hell
That's what the "golf thing"
could have been,
It could be a marker

To some unknown world
Where this chasm within my stomach
Is stitched, blanketed over
So I can't get lost and hit by the pain.

You can't look up,
So just admire the blades of grass,
Flattened in a mere moment
Remaining, on the soles for later.

So her sole is broken.
I could be a mender of bad souls
If only that one needed fixing.
But people cannot be what they are not

Without some degree of discomfort,
Opposing head-masters
Dictating their views
Expecting you to follow them
Like some stranded sheep
About to fall into quicksand.

Just let me walk away.

wow...i don't know how i missed this one...

i totally connect with this, and the wording is so grandeur (not in an over-snobbish way, in a perfect writing style way)

"so her sole is broken
i could be a mender of souls.
if only that one needed fixing..."

wow wow wow
