My fingers brush the static glass
Warm as skin
Hard as death
Behind, the shimmering image whines
Rewind, rewind
A stalling whirr, the tape picks up again
Again I watch my lifeless shape
Draped on asphalt
Pale and faded
Body crushed beneath a truck that stopped too late
Nothing sees the empty glass
The faded lens
The quiet place
Caked in dust lain layers thicker
Deeper than the rug below
All for a thought
When I remembered
Or the I that may have been
Left in that road with the tire tracks
And a hope of something better
I look in the water and fear what I see
I know it's no stranger but I know it's not me
My life is a lie that was uttered in jest
If I can't change at all, let me rest

How can I care if they cry
The sleeping hear no prayers
There is no touch of consequence
In naught beyond the pale

I used to think of nothing as
Something to be feared
But if it's coming anyway
Then why not end things here
I look in the water and fear what I see
I know it's no stranger but I know it's not me
My life is a lie that was uttered in jest
If I can't change at all, let me rest

Poem makes me want to give birb a hug
But it is a pretty, bittersweet poem!

Obsessive addiction with brand recognition
I bore what I made then I waited and listened
For denial, for praise, the sound of my name --
Would somebody please just remember my name?
I don't know it myself -
Not for some time
I gave it to you when I gave you my pride
In a lie that I wear every time that I type
So give me my worth
And I'll spit out more lines
My praisers, appraisers, prospectors and peers
I'd say that you sate but I wait on my fears
That grow swollen with ego - they eat and they need
So tell me I'm something! Acknowledge and feed!
I exist, I persist, I can think myself true --
But is thinking worth something when nothing's to do?
When underneath layers and nuance in cloth -
What will I leave when the clothes all come off?
What can I bear when forebearance is naught
And I sold off my tragedies, pawned off my thought -
Til there's nothing, just nothing, not even my name
Please
Could someone remember my name?
Just remember my name
And say how I felt
Because
At the moment
I don't feel myself
I look in the water and fear what I see
I know it's no stranger but I know it's not me
My life is a lie that was uttered in jest
If I can't change at all, let me rest

Thank you!!! I'm not particularly happy with it yet

Tie a knot, then tie it twice
Around the pinkie, pointer, thumb
And know when all is said and done
And time comes to remember why -
Well, I won't recall a thing
See, I'm the sort to lose the string...
I look in the water and fear what I see
I know it's no stranger but I know it's not me
My life is a lie that was uttered in jest
If I can't change at all, let me rest

Passed up for the silver chair
And the one who sits there watches me in judgement
I know I've had my share of care
But know I'm known to question what came of it
A cigarette lit - left to smolder
Cooling ash in piles on the ground
Blown to dust at the slightest touch and
All that I can do is smile now
Maybe I should silently wait here
As the moment's while undergoes
Wile out a lifelong masquerade
And make a final wish before I blow
You know I don't mean you any harm
So maybe you should leave me when you pass
You know I would hate to give a scar
So maybe you should learn to love me less.
I look in the water and fear what I see
I know it's no stranger but I know it's not me
My life is a lie that was uttered in jest
If I can't change at all, let me rest
