Random Poem:

die
thirdeyris

dying has been agonizing.
 1
  so far
 2
every moment in some bereavement
 3
i see the words i’ve spoken
 4
meant nothing to me
 5
everything to them.
 6
those words had purpose it’s not
 7
  a complete                             waste.
 8
my desire of future is sliding away
 9
as my plight poems slide up lists.
 10
death has it’s ups.
 11
like cheating
 12
there’s a chance you get what you ask for
 13
if you grab it and run like a cripple
 14
through life
 15
          with a wish
 16
and afterwards. much later. much much later.
 17
when the drunks have been ushered out
 18
or tossed out
 19
all cash tips counted
 20
and judgement day has passed
 21
        up on yourself
 22
you can see it. death.
 23
no more fear of it.
 24
like some fucking satori
 25
look at what you’ve done,
 26
you can finally breathe
 27
because all you ever had to begin with
 28
was your bare ass as the doctor spanked it
 29
remember that ?
 30
         that first shock of air?
 31
that’s the truth. that’s all you had.
 32
death is so damn common
 33
get over it.
 34
die. again.
 35
