SheSaid/HeStares
March 23rd, 2007 by scaredpoet

She’s posting all the time,
but the boards are down; like a burnt-down building.
He spends all of his time
on his back, staring at the ceiling.

They spend themselves that way,
and I’m with That, I’m with them
but you’re not. You are alive.
Damnit.

  • * * *

She just ignores the time
that the boards came down; it’s a burned-out feeling.
He just accepts the pain
with a hate mantra; a spiritual killing.

They just relax that way,
and I’m with That, I’m with them
but you’re not. You’re still alive.
Damnit.

Gnawing at the prey, I think about you some;
Where to put you?
All that backed up data for a raining day.

Insulate a fragile mind,
Capsulize your broken find.
“Don’t do this man,”
There’s another one behind,
Breaking down the door without warning.

I get the same result,
We all get the same effect.

Can’t go through this now;
I’m leaving a message
Stapled on your head.
