Dry Spell
  I am immobilized by time.
by the idea that it is somehow slipping,
              through the cracks of
      my fingers and high
             above my head.
  I am terrified by the incessant notion
that no combination of thoughts,
              or actions
   could possibly satiate it.
I realize only now that it can never be filled:
     all which is tossed into it is swallowed in haste
              or stretched
                       so far
           that it dissolves into non-being.
 I find that I am caught within its furrows
much like the words it devours:
   between its twisted arms
and I find myself aching
       to do so much at once
 that I end up doing
   at all.

Anxieties of a Conflicted Introvert
[i don’t want to
have to tell you i’m
again but
lately it’s been tough.
And i’m stricken with this feeling that
maybe i’m not good enough.]
you see, somewhere out there
        birds are looking for nests and birds
        are finding them in the ribcages of souls but i
am tired of picking straw from my heart
and strings and hair that wrap around my fingers i’m—
[well sometimes i’m a little lonely
but i never wanted to tell you that]
--tired of seeing the ball i wind from
those leftover nests grow and grow—
                    [and i want more, want more, but
                                sometimes there’s only so much my heart can hold]
get out.
--and grow

Or Maybe You Don't Care Anymore
Every time you see my name light up green
you think I am sat here talking to someone
else where I used to talk to you. It makes
you feel dizzy and a little bit sick. I am not
talking to anyone. I am just here looking at
your photographs.
A message flashes up on the screen.
It is from you.
All I feel is guilt.

I was taught right from wrong
I was taught right from wrong
By a murderer
I was taught truth from lies
By a magician
I was taught who my friends were
By my enemy
I was taught to be honest
By a professional liar
I was taught to always speak my mind
By being told to keep quiet
I was taught to be kind
By someone that beat me down
I was taught to smile
By someone who could never wipe a scowl of their face
I was taught to love
By being abused
I was taught to live
By someone who was already dead
I was taught to perform
By someone with stage fright
I was taught to be excellent
By someone that failed in everything
I was taught to rely on only my self
By being surrounded with people
I was taught to be perfect
By those that wanted to see me fail
I was taught to be loyal
By everyone that ever walked out of my life
I was taught to make people happy
By everyone who ever made me miserable
I was taught to control my temper
By those with explosive tempers
I was taught to take care of myself
By those who tried to kill me
I was taug

I have a name, but since I know none of you, you can call me CyanideGhost, or just Ghost. When in doubt, go by your killjoy name, I guess.
