Oblivion

Eyes wide shut
open -
for all to see!
darkness
descending
downard and
deeper than ever!

(my mind) .....dirty dungeon

Love is lost!

languishing.....................bemoan
groan moan

weepand howl ....... turn
your joy into
mourning: full of dry tears

eyes peeled open
like a banana

but.....

with a screwdriver and knife
split blood shot -

back to my notes
to drift back and forth
head bob job is not done

fall into



oblivion.
