    If I wanted sympathy
    I guess I'd talk more about
    being chased out of
    gas station restrooms
    tryin' to get my birdbath on
    sleepin' with one eye open
    in the back seat of a car
    knowing the only reason
    I'm there is because
    it was better than gettin'
    caught up in yet more sin
    you don't feel me though
    if I wanted revenge
    I'd go into some explicit
    details of so much dirt done
    but the truth is I don't care
    truth is I'm just here
    enduring this because
    I can't escape God
    and I long for the day
    He is done chastising me
    in His firey wrath
    I long for the day
    He says "ok Michael
    that's enough unbelievable
    torment for ya'
    now fly be free
    and live your life
    I won't divinely intervene"
    (like that will ever happen)
    so I hope hopelessly
    and wrestle with Him
    knowing I could never win
    sayin'
    all I want is what everyone
    else has
    a life
    all I want is to not keep
    watchin' it pass me by
    time after time after time...
    and my mind goes back to last night
    and how her eyes were brown and glossy
    and fine as she wanted to be
    how she smelled so good
    when she leaned into me to
    place her water and her sprite
    on the counter in front of me
    (as opposed to in front of her-
    she had enough room - of course I checked)
    how we connected in that moment
    eye to eye
    and there was no doubt between us
    in that moment or the next
    or the next as our eyes kept
    meeting even after I went to the
    other register that opened up
    let me tell you about pain...
    pain is leaving the store even as
    we again look at each other
    amidst the small crowd of customers
    goin' about their business
    and never even saying hi
    never asking her name
    not gettin' her number
    for fear of sure reprocussions
    from God for going against His will
    (been there done that so many times
    till I'm shell shocked and gun shy)
    and getting back on my lil mountain bike
    I bought from a fellow homeless dude
    awhile back for $10 (you know how many
    40's you can buy with that?
    - since I don't drink...)
    and riding off into my desolation
    my aching miserable solitude
    my "chosen - ness" my "set apart-ness"
    and add that day to the
    twenty three hundred plus days
    of hoping God would release me
    from this crazy strange game of guess
    nah... I don't want no sympathy
    I wouldn't know what to do with it
    but I would love, LOVE, to not
    be forced to feel like
    Eddie Murphy in "Bowfinger"
    at least give me the script
    feel me?

    Skrybe- your work is always interesting, to say the least. You have the ability to write beyond the scope of poetry if you so choose. In any event you have a fan in me.

    Has something been so understandably understandable, but at the same time so deep. Sort of how I tried to make that last sentence, but it didn't work??? I like this in other words!

    5 40's for 10 bills
    can release the ills of interplanetary pollution
    with solutions in the murky mist of the medows
    these 40's ease the pain from damable devils
    that bury the thought of the marry with 10 gallon shovels
    to take you down 10 levels
    as 10 flower petals drop to the dim dank dangerous dungeon
    floor
    before
    10 southern belles can blink
    stay strong amist the cosmic slop stink
    cause the link your looking for
    will come full circle like a roller rink

    peace
    khasm
