I Think I See Too Much

Poem By Vincent Topp

Deep sigh
Slap my face awake, hard
Will today surprise me, probably not.

The one I chased has stopped running,
Somebody else got their first.

Stupid little irritations become magnified,
Stupid little people become King Kong, to me, ant.

I walk the fine line between fragile and broken
Walking with a destination in mind but never getting there,
Never even getting near.
Hopes, nice emotions strangers to reality,
Drowns even youthful optimism that I still own.

Clear eyes become irritated,
Tired eyes become closed,
A good heart becomes bad.

Although I don’t want to,
When I’m left to my own devices,
I think too much
I see too much
I think I see too much.

The Forest

Every little red riding hood
Walks into the forest unprepared
Who would expect the wolf
When your heart is the unstained innocence.

The Lonely Man

The sweetest taste, is bitter now
My purest thoughts are poisoned through.
The ghost of fate, keeps mocking me
Every scar I’ve earnt, every drink I’ve drowned.

Stress Ball

My entire life has been a lie
Me, the real me
Has been the skater on the fractured ice
Escaped prisoner of my own Alcatraz

Choose Choose Choose

Sneezing out solutions
Coughing up emotions
Stirring black coffee soberness
Reality pinching me.

Director Of My Own Life Story

I’m the writer of my own life story,
But making up the plot as I go along.
I’m the only actor in my own life story,
No scripted lines, I’ll improvise.

Twice As Hard

Grown up in the business,
Like their father and his father before.
One was a natural, but the other bled sweat.
They longed to shake off the halo,
