Random Poem:

The Apathy of Drama
diexdoll

It's a mad dash to the bathroom
 1
and I'm hugging the throne
 2
my stomach rebels at the idea
 3
If only the truth were known
 4
My head is spinning
 5
so the room must really be standing still
 6
my fingers are tingling
 7
and this adrenaline is far less than a thrill
 8
how is it that words can bring the house down
 9
pinning me underneath
 10
my limbs going numb from pain
 11
and the best defense I can manage is to grit my teeth
 12
and my over active imagination is overreacting again
 13
fueled by thousands of images of broken glass hearts
 14
I'm still here kneeling over mine
 15
picking up the shattered parts
 16
There is no way to look back
 17
the blinders are all in place
 18
i am the beast of burden
 19
in this charitable society race
 20
what's with these voices
 21
echoing in the caverns of my soul
 22
don't let me believe them
 23
