Passage I
This won't be typical; and it's certainly not poetry.
As a child, I liked to call them 'passages'.
Whatever that is....I never did know what I was talking about.
But I digress.
This is simply a method to express...even if it makes no sense to you.
Word vomit.
All the things I can't stomach anymore. That fester inside...
the demons in my mind...they're winning.
Yes, I'm a Borderline; and my mind is a sick, twisted place.
But then again, so is my reality. Or so it would seem.
I had dreams once, but now, I can't even remember a time when I've slept in peace.
Poetry used to be my release, but it's becoming increasingly harder
to make an art of the things that once were so clear to me.
I'm always seeing and hearing things...only now I question everything and it's validity;
everything and it's integrity...or whether or not it's even a reality.
Am I even real?
These voices inside of me....these people...with their own desires and dreams.
They used to protect me, keep me safe from the things that frightened me as a child.
But no one understands that sickness when the innocence is gone. Now, I'm just crazy;
insanely delusional. Just throw me in an institution, why don't you!
Maybe you could have saved Kurt Cobain or Van Gough!
Princess Diana! Marilyn Monroe!
How I envy them so...
And how I wish that I did not love as I do...
All of you....this world that's given me so little reason to want to save it.
But I continue to pen it down...everything that I see.
Everything that I touch....every woman I've ever loved.
Every disgusting little thing that's been my misfortune to trust.
When will enough be enough?
When will my work here be done?
Do I even have a job? What is my purpose, goddess, I demand to know!
Or maybe my insanity was the only thing I was ever mean to know...
Which provokes an interesting question....
Do the insane know that they are crazy?
