Favorite Quote:
"Some people read about it, some people hear about it, and some people have to pee on the electric fence for themselves" -My Mom


I want to be one with the night
To shed these mortal instincts
Telling me to sleep or feel or go
home.
I want to breathe in the shadows and smoke
Feel them inside of me
Emptying, cleansing, liberating me from
myself.
I want to shed my humanity like an old, heavy coat
Share the identity of darkness, navy blue and dust
And slink like a Cheshire cat
Over the lands of sidewalks and corners
Taunting the light from beyond the farthest reaches of lonely streetlamps.
Free in superiority to
life
Safe in anonymity from
love.


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem over a year ago during a time of stress in my life, when I wanted to disappear and be something else.
