« Failed Poems {failure is a success} || Darkness {failed light} »

My meter is broken {couplets are broken} I Failed the Poem

My skin pressed up against your flesh

as if we are of the same mind and desire

Keep the doubts and fears to the left of right

I just can’t be here with you tonight


There are better things than this

my life lit up with a reset

and its like a reject button

like a factory line production


I’d like nothing better then creep inside

let me roll around in your mind

my hope for you is in a box

let hope out and all is lost


The truth is that I’ve never been

that comfortable in my own skin

how could I be safe under my person

I cannot change the man I am


There is magic in my words

and the dust that settles afterwords

still I am left with my skin

you with your flesh in a tin


What is left is not really right

I could be here with you tonite

we only wish that we could be better

but I can’t stop the endless chatter


I am missing in my own direction

on a table like a vivisection

the analysis never stops inside

I am not the person to be beside
