Random Poem:

Meant to burn

He’s blue with ambition.
He won’t breathe.
He shoves in circles
and faces the scene.
He screams to god or just the hallow sky;
save him for those unrequited lies.
He shelters them close in his crowded mind
Jetting him by, past his void of drive
The "perfect world" has finally arrived
Up here on cloud nine
He spies her at the wait of signs    
One   Light   Out
Love at first blush.
Quick to love,
quick to hush.
The nightmare's over,
there's time to crunch.
Get on the bus,
turn your back    
pick up, go!
You have dreams to clutch, and places to go
Poetic tragedy,
I'll see you at the show.
