Many Worlds Undone

If everything is
then everything is not
for nonexistence
is a state of existence
and that would seem
in the most extreme
to rip a big black gaping hole
right through the middle
of science, philosophy
and reality
because–poof!!

Black Hairy Words on White Water

Black Hairy Words on White Water

We are all
floating mystery boxes
filled with unique
personal scars
deep damage
mostly
tucked away from view
askew(ed)

Locked up tokens
mementos of the before times
not necessarily good
but better
than flashing sparks
of ironic plagues
skipped over in the flowing waters
of love
and loss
life
and the soy sauce
because IT chooses YOU

Anger and grief
utter disbelief
stone cold replicas
of hermit crabs
without their shells
it’s the hell we all achieve
we all perceive

We all perceive
from the inside-out
We create by holding on
or destroy by letting go
Yeah, you know
and now that it’s penned
it doesn’t much matter when
because John died at the end

The Giveaway

Seemingly chipper today
I wait
for raw nerves to compel
my innermost demon
to screamin’

I smile and greet
each character with a smile
ever polite
from grace and style
on this darkened stormy day

with my allergies
in the swollen pain
of rotting joints
a twisting spine
and piercing migraine

Hiding the status quo
here I go
painted on patience
out of my way to say
“Have a beautiful day!”

A sincere wish
under facade
until becomes real
this pleasant charade

Time machine by AleksCG

Infinity

Traveling forwards and backwards
sideways on good days
through thoughts and dreams
The page is my time machine
spilled words map my journey
to anywhen, anywhere
devising anything
Fueled by imagination
reading
writing
worlds beyond known
and gently back home
What a ride
what a high
