Walls collapse, ceiling careen and crash upon our backs, sweat and tact
Coming clean, confusing what it means to act responsibly,

Restlessly clawing from underneath these sheets, debris and empathy, forgot the pleasantries
Tunnel down, my own little well that's mine and mine as well

Shelter in the umbra try and hide but

Burden shift, slip in past sentry with a touch of bliss, wantonness
Tastelessness, petal like rose or at least I think, can't remember a thing

Excerpt from Strung LIke Puppets by Brian Strauss
"I am drunk

, crying

Begging for forgiveness.

I am tired

of digging through piles

of wrinkled clothes

My eyes feel as though they’re open,

though I’m only sleeping.

I hear a song playing,

Harmony of a woman- Lingered outward-
Cinematic quality to my implosion.

Noise flits backward- reverberates wildly

Sonic thrusts- Tapped their way through chiseled marble sound

An iconic flash of thought

It ends without."

Cold torn bed, withdrawal and gaze at ceiling still dilapidated, so inebriated
Tastelessness, petal like rose or at least I thought of it, apoplectic

Descend into catatonia,
Reaching, from the umbra
I take my first breath, all I taste is ash

And what would you expect? Everyone is changing, there's nothing pure, there's nothing sacred any

More or less, better off like this and I'm doing fine, some peace of mind
But I still miss, primal reversion of flesh and tangled mess of misery that's simply temporary, fleeting indecision, a languid condemnation seething, gone.
