Rulers of Life Provided: Dotted Lines MAG

The perforated edges
scar me. They push
and pull me against
my own wishes.
The guidelines are
shaming me to the ways
of others. My direction
strays off the dotted path
and they become angered.
They who follow, they who listen,
they who lack the imagination that I
provide for myself, for my own
self-satisfaction.
Everything lay nice and
neat and torn and broken. It will age
it will yellow, it shall break apart.
Your life will die before you. I rip my pages,
I write diagonally, sideways.
I see all life span before me
I see no end, I see no
failure.

Hi, this was supposed to be a form poem, but it didn't show up that way.
