Super Mario World Beruit Table (WIP) by conman--87 Super Mario World Beruit Table (WIP) :iconconman--87:conman--87 1 0
Day's Decay
Every day, when the fading light fails,
I find bits of sunset under my nails.
Things forgotten are to yesterday lost;
What paths I have missed are roads left uncrossed.
Anxiety bleeds me throughout day;
Despite all my efforts, I've lost my way.
Why do you leave, simple sun of my sky?
Day after day, you forsake me to night.
Sleep helps me forget, a transient fix,
But I wake to a noise and the clock still ticks.

My eyes,
They ache and burn so deep.
Their lids,
Tight-shut, refuse to keep.
My mind
Runs over counting-sheep.
Their bodies
Are hurdles I’m anxious to leap.
My hands,
They crush themselves in fists.
Like teeth,
They grind for shut-eye missed.
My soul
I'd sell for forty winks.
Your hell,
It’s this, I’m starting to think.
My hope,
It died, but I won’t weep.
I’ll mourn this loss of sleep.
My heart
Beats on, a ticking drum.
A clock
Which counts the hours’ sum.

Untitled 2
I lie on the sheets, bound to my bed.
No chains on my wrists, they’re all in my head.
Clocks tick away seconds, then hours, then days.
I don’t count their passing, but sleep them away.
No reason to wait, no sense being lost.
This fear is my folly, time is its cost.
I wait for something, for something profound.
Listening intently, I hear not a sound.
Just tireless ticking, the ticking of clocks,
Like the footsteps of Death, coming to knock.
Sunlight is a glow, then a glimmer, then dead.
I stare at the ceiling, bound to my bed.

Before, I would have said my heart was fine;
It was warm as a hearth and red like wine.
Joy came cheap and spirit was free.
I reveled in joy's simplicity.
As time moved on and the seasons passed,
Innocence shrank as questions were asked.
Later, a close inspection shows
Fractures and flaws from various woes.
The pressures of years weigh heavily,
As do new responsibilities.
Now there is no denying the fact:
I was too scared to try, too late to act.
My days are spent thinking of ends.
I find no comfort in the words of friends.
Hope and bliss, with whom ties were once strong,
Sometimes visit but never stay long.
Neglected, beaten, cold as a cage,
Worn down by hate and broken by rage,
This now-empty house which is my heart
Has gone to ruin, fallen apart.
Little pieces which fell from the cracks
Lie in a corner, placed neatly in stacks.
There they will indefinitely remain
'Til this house, by nature, is reclaimed.

United States
I don't know how to create fantastic works of art. I don't know how to write award-winning poetry. I just do what I do and enjoy it.

I enjoy spending my time listening to good music, watching good movies, checking out good art, having good conversations, meeting good people, spending time with family and good friends, and frolicking about in the good (great) outdoors.

Current Residence: Somewhat shabby basement apartment, California
Favourite genres of music: indie, synthpop, electronic, etc.
MP3 player of choice: iPod
Skin of choice: My own, thank you very much
Favourite cartoon character: Jake the Dog!
Favourite food: Mom's homemade lasagna
