Unfinished

Poem By Yuji Baba

Drowning in the melancholy of youth
I look up and I feel I can touch the sky
Watching the sun melt into the bleeding horizon
There is no one left but me and the moon

The park has become a circus of shadows
You said to meet here but I can’t stop walking
Taking one misplaced step after another
I’d be safer walking over broken glass

The distant stars come out to judge me
Yet I can’t help but feel pathetically alone
Above the clouds swirl into a hushed frenzy
The trees lurch whilst whispering my name

Stepping out onto the main road
The wind bursts onto my face
Silence blares into my ears
And suddenly the night becomes alive

I take a moment to wonder where I’m walking
Before heading down a neon drenched street
Here I go running from my problems again
You do love the girl I’ve become right?

Skin

This smiley little skeleton
Doesn’t eat to fill her day
She sits and waits at home, alone
Beaming as she wastes away

Pills Exodus

I dreamt of the fall of the stars
One night on a bed of broken glass
The world will continue to dream
While I lie here motionless, empty

Some Fairytale

When I look at you
Hidden loneliness in your eyes
Smudges of paint littering your hands
I begin to realise why I’m in love

13

Blonde hair in pigtails
On the lawn doing cartwheels
Candyfloss and angel wings
She sits forlornly on the swings

Mundane Asylum

I think I killed myself today
Looking in the mirror
Feeling like I wanna get gun happy
Here we go again
