Anthem for The Awaken

The colour has turned dead
Circulation ceased
Still bleeding but not red

I hang my head in shame
Eyes staring at me are tamed
Gnawing leisurely and trying
To strangle my soul and claim
That I was a sad student of Faith
Freedom and Equality. My death
Tailored according to my murderer’s needs
Condolences offered, blessings bestowed
I am packed and stored as a computer feed

The colour has turned dead
Circulation ceased
Still bleeding but not red

Remember me? I died for some
Who administered my funeral and hummed
The anthem for alleged prima donna students
They lamented next to my casket, lamented
As I was resurrected, without much ado rusticated
Before I could apply for and again try
To show the apocalyptic vision of tyranny
But they listened to none, mimed for some
And unlocked the door to tragedy

Many resurrected like me are standing high
Humming the anthem for bumbling fanatics
The colour has turned dead
Circulation ceased
Still bleeding but not red

So Far

I feel I am all alone in the two worlds.  Taking a step forward I see lightening as 'the fast' meets 'the slow'. I am not injured; I can endure the lightening but not the confusion.

A beautiful path lights up as far as the mind can reach. Back and forth between a one-way; crashing becomes a certainty. Quietly, I sit alive in the present.

I am understandably forgetful. Myriad revelations slip away like a childhood memory, leaving behind a warm aftertaste. The warmth turns into a glow and the rest I forget.

Infinity captured in a cage seeps away slowly. It is destined to do so. The two worlds are pulsating with this thought and I, in both.

But there is only one reality in me. The cube burns into a cylinder and the cylinder burns into a sphere. The shapes finally unite and the two worlds are annihilated.

Two Worlds

Not So Lonely Island / And I am with Jake

Me – Hey Jake, do you want some coconut water? Jake – No, I don’t want coconut water, I just had coconut water, how much coconut water...
