The Monotony of a Half-Man

Get up

Eat cereal if hungry

Drink breakfast juice

Neglect brushing teeth

Too cold for showering

Check social media

Check emails

Listen to music

Play computer games

Get changed into work clothes

 

Motorcycle there

 

WORK, WORK, WORK

WORK, WORK,WORK

 

Motorcycle back

 

Eat dinner

Chat with parents

Chat with girlfriend

Consider shower

Play computer games

Masturbate

Watch a movie

 

WRITE, WRITE, WRITE

WRITE, WRITE, WRITE

 

Read a book

Turn off the light

Think, dream

Dreaming, thinking

Sleeping

 

NIGHTMARE, NIGHTMARE, NIGHTMARE

NIGHTMARE, NIGHTMARE, NIGHTMARE

 

Wake up

 

Get up

Repeat

 

A single note plays through my mind, uninterrupted, undisturbed. Just as they would like it. Discord and changes to the note can result in beautiful melodies.

A Women’s Life

Her eyes leak escaped colours

They betray her thoughts

Her dreams appear in colourful mist

For a moment

She eyes me up

And down

Unsure

The visions come

A frozen unicorn

Stretching, straining

for a blade of grass

On a lone hill

Her baby

Repeatedly stabbed

Asking: “Why?”

With a nonchalant look on it’s face

A man

Throwing red paint

At her boarded up home

In a drunken rage

falling to his knees

Crying with frustration

Her parents

Blank faced

A constant white

enveloping memories

Her birth and death

Etched into her brain

Scribbled on papers

pinned up

On every nerve ending

Informing the masses on her due date

She walks into the mist

Lost

Alone

I watch her fade
