    A Rembrandt in my Pocket

    im out of interaction
    my spirit needs distraction
    the paint on the walls
    like water over falls
    running before my eyes
    i singsong lullabies
    tirelessly admiring each seconds uniqueness
    as life is erased beneath my sneakers
    my soul discretion
    black and white
    morality dictation
    a blanket invitation
    of unbalanced checks and dismembered wrecks
    im out of concepts
    nothing left
    but blinking eyes and the white mans lies
    the pavement pounds me
    the world disowns freedom and love
    the abused sisters of society and sloth
    we all breathe in the froth
    of fangs dripping and barnacles gripping
    hopeless desires given wings of mediocrity
    the ceiling is on fire
    but we live under the sea
    breathing no higher than a mollusc can be
    under torture we can only complain
    innocuous threats of hatred and distain
    a rembrandt in my pocket
    id steal your hair to set fire to my rocket
    nothing and no one
    i am purely a put on
    a face to reflect emotions and regret
    bottled inside a ship of glass
    so small i cant even trigger the cannon
    and blast
    this is not a disgrace
    this is a loveless embrace
    a tearful race to the bottom
    you cant stop em
    they dont care and you were never aware
    of how close you became
    to being just another laugh track
    on a midlevel sitcom of shame

    Beautiful writing as always wolfie. Your words always touch a place in me not many have ever reached. Your pen is so skilled I find myself wanting to write. The string of words you put together are more like pearls of wisdom.

    This was a pretty intense read..... I noticed this had a very similar style of writing as my older work!

    great love the imagery you give off to the reader and so much passion is here very deep great job

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

    Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
