I Seek and Unlived

I Seek

I’m seeking distraction after distraction
As if I don’t care about the ink on these pages
I’m seeking distraction after distraction
As if I don’t care about the ink on these pages
But I do
Pardon me spirit I don’t know which disease ails me
And which makes my neurosis a home to turn away from my identities
I come to these pages kicking and screaming
But screening every thought that I own has become a burden
In the idle times I can’t find a way to do what I want
As if I’m standing with a plumbob over my head.
Thinking I could be a better me
Despite the inner lawyers attesting to the facts
That when my pen touches the page
I might be wasting my time
My conscious, the judge
Is too distracted by the sapphire screen
To even give a damn about the fake news going on in its own court room
And so I seek, and I seek, and I seek.

Unlived

The life unlived does not disappear
The destination flight, with its dreams
Is in first class prices
And payment is in erythrocyte and salt

There will be hecklers in the gallery
Watching a person too old, too tired
Become who they should’ve too many years ago
But in opposition of the peanuts, they will grow

The life unlived is at an incline
Plateaus are not given to relieve
But to trap those seeking Comfort’s Bosom
And by being trapped never again ascend

Those nestled into plateaus will look upon the ascenders
Their eyes will gleam bewildered but will only ask
“Why do you even try?”
“Because the life unlived does not disappear”
