    Been trippin'
    so much my mind
    is bruised trying not
    to lose my
    san/real/seren/tranquil/
    ity
    ...trying to hold on...confusion
    confinement contradiction concupiscence
    ...condemn...Me My I
    trying not to trip
    yet stumbling perpetually
    into (e)motion into another
    thought of what CON's me into
    thinking
    what I see in the mirror is real...
    delusions/illusions
    reflections of questions...

    I'm looking at myself inside out
    but it's what's outside that's got me in
    a dismounted state of equilibrium
    equal is equal unless one side
    of the scale doesn't exist /
    then one walks / talks / thinks unbalanced
    and believe the earth revolves around you
    when it really is falling down on you...

    ****...gotta duck / tuck my shadows in my
    back pocket and run...run...run
    the earth is falling! the earth is falling!
    the earth is falling! No one is listening
    saying I'm tripping / tripped / dun fell on my
    head trying to convince the present it's
    past tense...but...

    all look up and see my pain rising to
    the sky...tears shattering the sunrays splashing
    shards of color dipped in formaldahyde...

    color dyed / leaving nothing but black and white
    stains on the sheets of my mind...cause I'm tripping/

    My altered mind/I altered time/ to make
    it seem as if time had already passed/
    to make it the right time so "trust"
    wouldn't beat my ***/and live in a
    state of bliss that wasn't "altered"
    by


    TIME.

    that piece sure was a... :flamet: ...I caught it, I feel it, have/is lived it. What you scribe just comes naturally from the inside. I"ve read many of your poetry, I see your flows. In light of all that I know from a spiritual sight that...You're very, very INTELLIGENT...you are without a doubt GIFTED, so continue to share your gift with the univerise. I admire your style. Keep the light shining...
