Re-Verse per Request

20 Jul

Cheers

I’m tired of being
Everything
I don’t want to be
Anything
Martyr Goddess
Diva Superman
Glorified Nigger
Friend and Foe
I don’t want to be
Raging like Dylan
in the dark
Plathesque
I’m tired of being
Miss Vida Standing
Chelsea’s death
Mother’s Failure
Grandma’s pride
Fuck it
I.
Am.
Tired.
I want to shut the fuck up
and go sit down somewhere
I want to be
not nice
not pretty
not dazed
not me
Hell in a handbasket
on a midnight train to Georgia
I’m tired of being
a thousand me’s
for a thousand you’s
Fuck.
It.
(And fuck you, too)

Yes. You.

Blessed Be and Be Gone

I am God
of my universe
I am Earth Mother
to a thousand children
of love and darkness
I am Kali
to your bullshit
I am Aprodite
to your northward
pointing
lust
I am the Green Man
to fields of creativity
I dance in the Dark
I howl at the Moon
I scream at the Make Believe
all the while you
there
hiding
behind your warm fuzziness
like a mold
a fungus
a moss
covering your own life
suffocating
condemning mine
which you haven’t the right
to consider
and to this i simply say
Blessed.
Be.
and
Be.
Gone.

    I needed this today. I'm in one of those places right now but I can't even be bothered to write about it so, I am glad that you reposted this. – G

    I think I need to rage like Dylan and do some howling at the moon…it would make me feel better.
