Less Human

i’m less human when i’m alone,

like a machine going into low power mode,

no one’s around,

cease all non critical processes,

 

i sit in dark rooms,

running lower run times,

until i am under observation,

to pretend i’m human again

Movement

wishing to break gravity,

that one days lays us all to rest,

people have always dreamed of flying

I Hate the Bar

the bartender won’t even look at me,

i feel like shame itself is raining upon my shoulders,

i don’t even remember what i said, i must’ve blacked out that night,

months ago,

what did i say?

how could i make anyone so angry?

when all i want is for people to say “Hello” and shake my hand when i walk into the bar,

now i just hate that bar,

i went in tonight and had six Guinness for St.Patrick’s Day,

and i felt like a right ass,

there were cute girls there and everything,

i talked to three of them,

and asked a bunch of people their names,

i’m trying as hard as i can

to be a real person,

and instead i feel like there’s something dead inside me that people can see

“You Are Someone Else, I am Still Right Here”

everyone i ever knew moved away,

they got on that road,

and they stopped returning my calls,

 

when i left,

i went 180 miles North,

but I am the same man,

 

i get drunk alone,

i feel absolutely undeserving of love,

and i fall asleep holding tightly to my Grandmother’s pillow

Old School

i’m old school in a handful of ways,

i know the names of everyone i’ve slept with,

i like 15 year whiskey,

and sometimes i get so frustrated by my failures of intimacy that i cry

Please?

i am being unreasonable,

but i would like to connect with a woman once more,

please?

i’ll cook breakfast

Upon a Star

i wish i’d gotten the help

i needed when i was thirteen,

would’ve saved me some headaches
