Braincase Blues

Untitled

shit just got real
life fucking hurts

emotions pour in
tumble out to empty me

an audience of one drama
spectators get the cliff notes

all thoughts on repeat to the nth degree
pain drags like spikes in my grey matter

good memories hurt
good feelings replaced with pain

every nerve lit
but deadened

i need time, meds, answers
and rest

i need life not to suck so much

Falling Behind

Untitled

gotta go, gotta hurry, gotta get there
gotta, gotta, gotta
move, out of my way
just yeeeeaaaaah

feeling trapped
going slow-mo on overdrive
taking speed walking in jelly
like in a dream being chased

it’s being a human on a hamster wheel
powering on, powering thru
getting nowhere fast
stepping to the daily demands

slow down
