Confiscate the darkness
Eliminate the moon
Trash the cloaked night sky
Then exterminate the goons

Free yourself of the monsters
Then sprint to what you choose
Exemplify you needs and wants
Leave behind nothing but one of the clues

Split open your mind
Then equally portion out your soul
Break apart your bones
Then feed them to the coal

With you last strength of effort
Ignite the impatient flames
A dream of the retired longing
Simply entered the heavens in fame

i dont like being misunderstood and questioned, it gets in the way of decent conversatiopn. and i was being sarcastic about darkness, or maybe not. i dont mind depressing thoughts. i love the poem. pure awesomeness. oh, you'e the captan, captain. and the monkey stands for whatever you did that i liked-in this case , the poem.

 i see. well when i was reading through some of your stuff you clearly stated that people shouldn't try to figure out what you're saying, or what you mean. that what you say isn't logical, or idk something along the lines of that. then you purposly write weird things, or talk and write words in the opposite order (sometimes) to come across as confusing people..so that's where i got it from. and that's why i believe that. and thanks for explaining the "monkey dance" stuff and everything. and...

i dont purposely try to confuse people, its just that whenever i try to come across clear people are like what" and so i say forget it, stop trying to make sense of it because i cant explain it to you, and there is no monkey dance. i said do your dance. i say that alot. i just recenlty evaluated the monkey, so from now you'll be dancing on the monkey. but yeah, thats nice.
