Random Poem:

Crushed Daisies
jacksonic

.      Stompin on the flower garden
 1
Coward hardened by the sun which never shined an hour on him
 2
   Tastes more bitter than a sour carton of milk do
 3
     Heart part filled, true
 4
                                    Shadows can be still too
 5
       Rusty teeth, punctured tongue
 6
                             Eyes covered with mildew
 7
  
 8
    Says he runs with an ill crew
 9
                          But no one has seen them before
 10
Never had a real use
 11
                       Laid across an empty floor
 12
 
 
          While he's pickin at scabs
 13
                Everybody else is gigglin with laughs
 14
     Thinkin "Why'd he sit down in the middle of the path?"
 15
          When hes scratchin at his spine tryna rip up his back
 16
 
 
           And he's just tryna maybe kinda possibly cope
 17
      Toying with reflections and talking to ghosts
 18
         They're his only friends tellin him to swallow his hopes
 19
Knowing very well that he'll probably choke
 20
 
 
                            Maybe then he'll stop stomping on groves.
