Conflict Of A Kind


Maybe you just don't
see me as the person
who needs to squeeze
everything out,

I cannot get God out
of me,

therefore...

I am always at war,

Although a polite straight
forward attitude towards
everything, is not a hard
thing for me,

Hell is something I can
construct for myself,

Love and dislike
are the only equals I know,

It's like here I am again,
or there I go...

Into the infernal oblivion,

of not knowing where to place,
my darker ambitions,

I always want to spread out
further and further,

Court the profane,

I say to myself, is this
really you or something else?

While the masses tattoo their
arms legs and backs,
with something of their self
same torment,

but I have yet to squirt
ink all over my brain,

with a credo
I'd think worthwhile...

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
