Oblivion

Rotten is thy apple, the life I held dear,
But looking back is harder than saying goodbye.
It seems I have wasted many a long year
The past is inalterable, none can deny.

I wonder what the world has accomplished beyond my walls
I would join the masses if I were not so abiding
I would surely laugh if the sensation ever calls
Paradise isn't lost, it's just hiding

Peace has not followed my decisions and choices before.
But this matters not; I wash my hands of my past
My appearance is mirrored in the shock of your stare forevermore
I hear the wind whispering my name at long last

Vultures are waiting for what’s left of me
The lobotomist arrives to set me free

The weather was fine and the ocean was great.

I used to have a bunch of pet hermit crabs. But they all died. RIP.

You know you seem like the type of kid who listens to the bad Devourment.

I'm beginning the 9th grade tomorrow. That's what this poem makes me think of. School.
