What Was Then And There

Poem By Michael Matsuda

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
We are but parasites to this overgenerous host
So we must make every word and letter mean the most.

With each comprehensive spin
There is; let this newborn life begin
In pale contrast, sad but true, one will end
A cycle, this populated sphere will commit again
Over such consequences, do not waste your tears
For these moments will accumulate into wasted years

From hatred, death, and fear to happiness, joy and love
My love, do not look down but past the stars above
This journey has been long; let us embrace this forever sleep
Embraced in my arms until then, you, I shall keep
Please understand these matters; smile and be glad
Life; this was the best idea you've ever had...

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.

Counterproductive Thoughts Of An Insomniac

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

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.
