Mental Health Monday – 09.26.22

#mentalhealthmonday#mentalhealthawareness "I don't care". I hear this a lot from people from my generation. Gen X, 90's kids. All grown up, now. This was our claim to fame. A semi-detached form of neo-nihilism that colored our generation. We got it from our older brothers and sisters. The 80's kids. The "Me" generation. The 50's, 60's, … Continue reading Mental Health Monday – 09.26.22

A Child’s Play

I have grown tired of contradictions. Every question begs an answer that flies in the face of every other answer and all I have left is the problem I set out with in the end.   I am a child fighting off dream dragons; sword broken, searching for my shield and lost in an endless … Continue reading A Child’s Play

Noisy People

There's nothing left, but the anticipation, a broken heart, too much exhilaration. I lost the day to hate and veneration, delayed my plane, dismayed the congregation; there's just one explanation.   Something in the far off sky caught my eye and I was gone for forever. Someone blew me a kiss, somehow I missed happily … Continue reading Noisy People

Prison Skin

Thought you were ready to run? Thought you were ready to go? All fucked up on the answers of all that you had to know. Now that you have the keys; you've killed a jailer or two. Can you work the lock from the inside? Are you sure you want to? The world out there … Continue reading Prison Skin

The Diagnosis

They took his proclamation of enlightenment as a sign of madness and he was treated with derision and imprisoned for his crime.   He claimed he saw the light, but they thought he was there to shine and they were all blind.   He was no problem, but a prophet always brings, followers with him … Continue reading The Diagnosis

Dopamine

Suffer, but never recover. The things we are after are meaningless. All we receive is more trouble, I’ve seen it double. You’re bleeding out and I’m digging under.   Spend all your time, your money, your effort, your soul thinking that you’re in control. I can give you everything, just a chemical reaction in your … Continue reading Dopamine

Maybe Automaton?

“Apply chest compressions!” “Give him oxygen!” “Live, Goddamn it!” “Pushing adrenaline!” “Can you find a pulse?” “No, I think we’re losing him.”   Was he ever alive? Or is he an automaton? Did he ever breathe? Eyes ever cry? You have to be alive to die. I’m not sure why we all have synapses snapping … Continue reading Maybe Automaton?

It’s Funny When We Fall

Hasten the fall, running to the edge and over. Breaking the walls, hitting them so much more, that they come down. Overcome. Laying down. This strangled reply is the best I could find. Maybe making all this happen was a joke? I hear laughing; Oh, so close. In my bones. It must be coming out … Continue reading It’s Funny When We Fall

Shut up for a minute and just listen. Do you hear it? It is the not-quite-silence of the world not giving a fuck.   The demons in your head don't feed the hungry. Your discomfort cannot keep the rain from falling. All of this complaining doesn't change your circumstances; the whole world just goes on. … Continue reading STFU

Spiders In My Head

There are spiders in my head, spinning webs. Intricate designs, connections in my mind, they move quickly upon their many legs.   When stimulus gets in, they pounce on it and spin it up into a silk cocoon and then it is consumed.   The labours of my arachnid mind, trapping all the world inside. … Continue reading Spiders In My Head
