Cubbyhole Confessions

my hands clasped around
a world so wide
my mind cannot abide
to Earth's ocean tides
I ride my own waves
as lonesome as I may
I carve out my own caves
And bear the fears today
Fears of failure; successes too
Being sucked in by a vacuum
depressed violins
pressed against tissues and violence
try to scan my brain
but my cerebral membranes refuse
like a dead fuse
the triple A's are of no use
I am a broken lamp
shattered on the floor
nightmarish thoughts
and pots and pans
can't muffle the screams
i suppress inside
Even then, I can't undress my skeleton
x-ray my stomach
you'll find it empty
x-ray my heart
you'll find blood
flood my eyes with tears, please do
isn't water the sustanence of life?
I move the waters
my waves only
a wave goodbye
a wave hello
I won't die
for my portrait gleams yellow
confess, profess, confess again
no need to pretend
