Counterproductive Thoughts Of An Insomniac

Poem By Michael Matsuda

Dismay, disarray;
Marionette, let me make you who you are today
Put on that schizophrenic mask, smile and play
These phantom limbs and phantom thoughts
Will contort everything you have all for naught.
I will tell you why you exist
Let me play with your psyche, give it a twist

Brainwashed, brain tossed;
Let me laugh and your gains; all your loss
Your life and soul are the token to the cost
Nullified everything you believed into a void
All the more reason to feel more paranoid
Frantically look around this world of delirium
As the monks hymn that final hymn; A requiem

Mind. Mine! Where did my mind go?
All my optimism is knotted in the undertow
Smile that pessimistic smile, denizens, they’ll never know
Fallen angel, swing that scythe to this timeless death
Expel, exhale, and curse all with your final breath
No squealing, things are not as they seem
All in this parallel universe; life is but a dream

White-Washed Walls

The blank white washed wall. Covered in posters, it looks a little more elaborate than before. Consequently, it appears more appealing but no matter how hard you try to hide the wall with paper, beneath it is still that sad stale plain wall.

Sometimes, if you fixate your eyes to that wall in the pitch black of the darkened room only set aglow by the computer monitor, you can see it become animated. The wall starts to move inward, shapes are formed by the uneven coating of paint that move with life. However, everyone else will look at this wall and see nothing.

What Was Then And There

Axial rotational ride
Too beautiful to let yourself hide
Such short time on this lush green roller coaster
We can't spare clocks on braggers and boasters

Fool's Gold

Perfection is not instant
Remember that perfection is a process of trial and errors!
There are no shortcuts in time so go the distance.
But do not stray from the path like fool's gold I'll compare!

The Sounds Have Turn To Silence

Smoke comes billowing out of my head. I can smell it wafting around my nose. The opaque screen impairs my vision and now I am one human sense down.


Is it a dream?

Where I'M From

I am from the Shadows.
I am from the dark womb.
I am a silhouette from the sonigram,
Quiet but moving and forming contemplations.
