For Fuck’s Sake

Another shuttered misstep
Blood coursing through damp hair
Eyes ablaze with the passion of injury
Taking breaths of gravel through pants
Moving over the pain towards exaggeration
Lash forward with a growl
Lighting striking an unexplored region
Falling back towards a hole of decay
Landing against mechanical metal
Pupils hazed by a whirlwind of direction
Seized by the opening earth below
A distorted voice booming through the fog
Listing the fired violations to dead ears
Right before the lights turned out
Realizing my modulated virtue was fucked

Ecstasy/Fallout VII

the dust settled during the epilogue
no lives were lost
no tears couldn’t be dried up

sure, everything ended
the rage of a fire cleanses the forest
leaving seeds for new adventures

was it worth the fallout?
that viewpoint is TBD at last call
when all can be looked at empirically

but if the question needed answering now
it should be said if one thing were changed
one path left for other to travel
one drink kept in the keg
all would be different
now would not exist
fingers would not be telling you this
more journeys would not be possible

so it can’t be that bad.

The Attempts

I just can’t keep up the facade
A convalescent juxtaposition against greatness
All the debts I pretended to pay
The destitute constitution I disregarded
Shallow waters drown me
The depth shortens my breathe
Surrounded by reverberations of salacious samples
Frown while fighting for a handful of steps
Say it with your chest but express it with your tears
Drone the pings bouncing down the surface
Couldn’t have defended the frontline
A barrage of soulless sectors invading the day
Calendar count the times defiance fell to its knees
A slackened defense against a violent offense
Drink the martini forget the slandered sucker punched disgrace
Drown over and over again in the glow of a moon
The only true light shining in the fluorescent glow
Break the glass
Stammer through grass
Calloused kinships to summon
Through the desert I dragged myself
Down the toilet I had to drown
Shrug the trepidation
Stall the static inference
Dire doom stare
Telling tallies

All attempts fell short
Half-hearted desire stifled
Never really believed in anything
So I fell for everything
A modern day messiah.
