Miracle’s not so deep sixed sixes.

by _Miracle on October 10, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Not so deep and not so deep sixed for the moment.

Irony’s rusted now’s another thing dusted.
Watching, learning endless sh*t to unlearn.
Became conscious, realized violence, walked away.
No moral inch to ground upon.
Playful words dancing off these fingertips.
Every single past experience, prepared me. TWLOHA
Keep betting on non-existent numbers.
Another ethos bloomed by budding egos. America
Not entirely appreciative of my sobriety. Resolutions
Difficult conversations may be best unspoken.
Gut’s wrenching, hearts breaking, souls aching.
He holds hope? My stomach drops.
The end must become “The End”.
So it’s big. So damn what?

Redemption came and f**ked everything up.

Hardwired survivor, thriver’s neural-pathway’s disconnected.

Nobody offends you, you become offended. Happiness

Lost I.Q. points by squandering them.

Have had and caused much grief.
My crazy logic's driving me nuts.

Egos construct not as centric deconstructed.

Tangled, twisted realities revealed sweeter dreams.
