Hallow's Eve

Spending this favourite night

of ancient pagan glory

writing essays of ugly knowledge,

with Halloween coloured pills

In my bedroom lit by candles

my mind begins to wander

with the dark outside my window,

naked branches on the trees

If I don't sleep tonight

then I won't awake tomorrow

If I don't close my eyes,

pray tomorrow never comes

Stay this night forever,

'til I can live it full for once

The veil sits thin as lace tonight,

until the morning comes

Colour Wheel

A leaf may fall

from tender branch

On gentle breeze

glide to the earth

In darkness sleep

the heart of fall

May sunrise show

the year's first frost


A history too rich,

too jaded

It smothered me,

and I almost welcomed

my way out

Amphetaminergic Effects

Dissolve panic,
resolve suffocation
Making me normal again,
so I can face this population;
and read these books
without choking on the sentences

An outsider, happy on the outside
Pen to the paper in a room full of people,
and dirty tables that churn my stomach;

Sometimes I look more depressed
than I actually am
