Why do I do this?
I really wish I understood.
My fingers tap the desk,
Playing piano on the wood.

Day in, day out, constantly.
My fingers just keep going.
They always keep their rhythm,
Their strange pattern never slowing.

Am I simply an obsessive?
Is it a mental glitch?
Why can I not stop?
It’s like an unscratchable itch.

It feels dangerous, consuming me.
It isn’t a magical gift .
It feels like a curse,
One I want to lift.

Please, make it go away.
Have it leave me be.
Maybe if you help me,
I can someday be free.

“There's nothing fundamentally wrong with people. Given a story to enact that puts them in accord with the world, they will live in accord with the world. But given a story to enact that puts them at odds with the world, as yours does, they will live at odds with the world. Given a story to enact in which they are the lords of the world, they will ACT like lords of the world. And, given a story to enact in which the world is a foe to be conquered, they will conquer it like a foe, and one day, inevitably, their foe will lie bleeding to death at their feet, as the world is now.”

I noticed ;) Check out some of my poetry if you want I think you'd relate.

This should be a song.
