Softly Fading In And Out

Poem By Perfect Fool

So vivid
Of nothing
Full of

Living in reality
Dreaming in reality
Reality living in a dream?

Fading into one another
Time passes
Over my head
I'm in
Way over my head

Boundaries of state
Dreams being realized
Trampling over my thoughts

The smoke rises in the sun
Am I dreaming?
I can smell the smoke
But I don’t trust my own senses anymore

What day is this?
Have I woken to this?
My head sleeps on
My eyes are open
I look but I don’t see

Softly fading in and out
Dreaming of tomorrow
Settle into the night
Prepare to dream
The dreaming stops
I'm awake
I'm sleeping
No dreams come
Empty sleep

Am I really alive?
Am I even here?
In my next dream I'm dying
Dying to see if I feel at all
To see if my senses come back to me
I don’t know what’s going on anymore
Happy haze of passivity
All I know is that this isn’t real

Liquid Violence

That which gives me strength
As the stream runs red
Pouring like liquid violence
From a cut in my head

I Am Not Made

I am not made for this
I’m not strong enough
I’ve often wondered late at night
What it’s like to stop

Circles Round The Moon

Tonight I drew a circle round the moon
This night I drew a circle round the moon
Through a glazed up frosty window
I drew a circle round the moon

Be My Sanity

From a low to mania
Standing watching, observing
Twisting inside


Come on, walk towards that light you see
At the end of the tunnel wait for me
I’ll be there soon, when I break free
From this world that’s holding me

Looking Pretty On A Sunday

Early evening the world collapsed
And the ground fell from beneath the sky
The sea blew sideways and rolled away
And the hazy sunrays crowded the shoreline
