Random Poem:


Hands got caught in the cookie jar,
Tried to run and hide but didn’t get far.
Cherry finger prints were left behind,
Entirely out of sight and out of mind.
Bound to the voices inside my skull,
For life is now vapid and still so null.  
Each appendage as comatose as ever,
Thoughts of just wanting to sever.
Little voices trickling in and out
Wheedling me into vulgar shouts.
I can hardly feel the fetters restraint,
For my body is fully numb with hate.
One measly mistake led to total insanity
Now I’m wholly stripped of all my vanity.
