And Other Things From This Time Preview

Often

I often wonder what it feels to die
Does it feel like I do now
All alone with no one to talk too
I do this to myself
Yet I don’t know the answers to my own questions
I often wonder how soon
Will all this prove to be meaningless
They say you pave your own way
But what if it’s not true
What if this is nothing more than a collection
Of me and you
I often wonder about God
Am I him or is it you
All reason would lead to nothing at all
I feel like I know what I’m saying
But in the end it all seems to come out the same
Blood in blood out and all that shit
Maybe life is nothing more than a brotherhood
Of bull shit
I do this to myself
Get all upset for no good reason
I often wonder what it feels to die
And I know it has to feel like this

Into the Wild

I was a drifter
I was a wanderer
I was everything
You could ever want to be
I was a vagrant
I was a tramp
I was everything
You could ever want of me
I can’t die
Into the wild
I can’t die
Into the wild
My soul is my sacrifice
I can’t die
Into the wild

Knows When to Turn it Off

She said it mattered but it didn’t
She’s a good enough actor to portray Bruce Campbell
More of a dig, unless you enjoy that kind of shit
Be honest with yourself
There’s more in life than not giving a shit
She said she loved me but she didn’t
She’s as truthful as advertising
More of a reality, unless you believe that kind of shit
Be honest with yourself
Nothing ever ends like the movies
She said it was over but only after she dragged it on
She’s as demented as Clark W. Griswold
More of a lie, unless you believe it was an accident
Be honest with yourself
You would have noticed the blood trail at some point
She said it mattered
She said she loved me
She said it was over
Now I’m just sitting here watching
Shitty movies, of our past in my head
Wondering when I became the villain

Three poems from my poem collection And Other Lost Things From This Time now available on Kindle.  The last two previews have been on the sad side so I thought why not show you a bit of my pop culture obsessed side. Into the Wild was written and based on the same thought and idea as the movie/book. I really enjoyed Chris’s story even though it was very tragic what happened.  I was really hoping it was going to end the way a lot of us dream it would. Well worth the read if you haven’t already. The movie is also good, but there is a book so yeah you already know. Check out both if you have the time.

Knows When to Turn it Off is not the greatest example of my work, but some of those lines are pretty good. It was more of a dead idea where the theme was much better than the outcome. However how often do you see a poem with a reference to Clark W. Griswold? Exactly. For the record I enjoy Bruce Campbell films, but the lines “worked” the way they did.
