    Syk0naut - 16 Reasons Sleep Is An Antiquated Art Form (2)

    One:
    If I assassinate celebs and make a wish while shooting stars
    Could I borrow some red carpet to patch up this oozing heart

    Two:
    I think the clock hands are arthritic because time just never passes
    Like I'm falling through a black hole composed of cement and molasses
    My bad thoughts have formed a legion and I'm burdened by the bulk
    But when I exercise my demons I'm just haunted by the hulk
    Thanks.

    Three:
    I remember sitting at home crying just waiting for you to come back
    While you were out there in a parking lot sucking cum out of a scum bag
    I remember when I caught you breathe him life and me a gun blast
    And I wanted to confront you but all I managed was to run back.
    To the kitchen, grabbed a knife, slit my wrist and watched it bleed
    Though I didn't really want to die I just needed you to see...
    That the tears out on the surface come from some place underneath
    But you were deaf to our disaster out beyond the thunder's reach.

    Four:
    You said you only cheated because you knew that I would never let you go
    And honestly... well honestly you're right because I could never let you go
    But why would you ever leave someone that would never let you go
    Who'd be ripped from both limbs before he would ever let you go
    I will never let you go...
    I will never let you go...

    Four:
    But you made me let you go...

    Four:
    Now I'm not sure where to go...

    Four:
    So I can't fucking sleep...

    Four:
    And I don't count good when I'm tired...

    Four:
    But one night as he dreams...

    Four:
    I hope he rests right through a fire...

    Four:
    I hope he rests right through a fire...

    Four:
    I repeat myself when I'm sad...

    Four:
    I repeat myself when I'm sad...
    I repeat myself when I'm sad...
    I repeat myself when I'm sad...
    I repeat myself when I'm sad...

    Five:
    You were a dewdrop on a rose multiplied beyond infinity
    You were sunbeams on my soul through the shadows of divinity
    You were waking every morning gladly knowing I'm invincible.
    Now you're crying every night sadly knowing I'm invincible.
    Thanks.

    Six:
    Sometimes I wish I was a mortal man, at least enough to hate you
    At least enough to tell myself that you probably aren't an angel
    At least enough to tell you that's it's not right you have my car
    It's not right you have my home or that his coat is on my bar
    Speaking of which...

    Six A:
    On our last day together you got up at 3 am to drive him to the airport
    In that very car that I worked so hard and saved for
    But I couldn't tell you no because I love you more than me
    And as badly as it stung I'd rather all the wasps sting me...

    Six B:
    You're welcome...

    Seven:
    I told you in my eighth summer I took a nap against an oak in the splendor of it's shade
    But when I woke the sun had shifted and my skin was blistered by it's rays
    You said, sweet boy I know that love must feel like comfort but you can never ever rest
    You see you have a heart of gold and pirates steal from treasure chests
    So I'm looking in our wake to find the pieces we forgot
    As I use this tattered map to where my ex marks the spot
    You were the pirate and the treasure...

    Eight:
    I still haven't told your mom.
    I want to...
    I want to tell her so she can hate him before you make the introductions
    So she can really know what happened and won't have to make assumptions
    But I can't... I still love you.
    Besides, I met somebody else...
    And though you've made it kind of hard, I still trust her with myself.
    I told you.
    I'm invincible.

    Nine:
    I heard once love is blind and I guess that must be true
    Because when I see nothing else I somehow still see you
    And when everything turns black I still see your every hue
    And when I color in the future you're the crayon that I choose
    I swear to God it's like your face has been painted in my eye lids
    Because every single time I blink I see your iris meet my iris
    Now it's only with my eyes closed that the world lights up the brightest
    So my heartbeat comes in brail and whispers beauty when I'm sightless
    Which is to say, lately I keep running into walls.

    Ten:
    That scene stays on replay when I'm laying in the darkness
    And though the nights are always tough I think the mornings are the hardest
    See my bed without you here looks like a field after the harvest
    These sheets were once our canvas but now... Now they're just a carcass.

    Eleven:
    I'm leaning on a broken crutch tryna regain my composure
    And believing if I open up I'll be paid by some closure
    See...
    Our climax was a valley, the mountains were just lies
    Without you I'm a desert, save the fountains in my eyes
    My cheeks have turned to canyons from the rivers that I've cried
    I'm eroding every day but still somehow I survive
    I'm a cockroach.
    I'm invincible.

    Twelve:
    Liquors my religion, so I worship vodka bottles til I'm filled up with the spirit
    And if you pierce my aching side you'll see it pour from where the spear hit
    Crucified by Crown and Coke, a few hit lines and down I go
    Truth is I just drown and choke, in putrid wine - it's how I cope
    See, when my mind is sober stated it makes life feel over rated
    You mistook our home for spaceships, left your forehead's shoulder vacant
    So reality's transformed to treading through this torment boulder weighted
    Whilst a vulgar, anxious, moper's playlist, adorned as therapy I wrote
    Seems to only serve as proof that now my clarity's a ghost
    Yea verily I know, her haunts are fueled by what these pills show
    As your indentions in our bed reveal the cruel side of the pillows...
    Pulled lines unwind the frilled sew, of what once was our forever...
    I guess forever was four months short of four years, by the way happy anniversary
    I guess... I guess I just alway thought
    It was supposed to end with our grand babies in the nursery...
    I guess... I guess not...

    Thirteen:
    I met somebody else and I love her just like you
    But I can't escape the fact you're my old paint beneath the new
    And I'm a crease on the page that you may never turn back to
    But loving you is the only the I've ever truly learned to do...
    Which really only means I spoke my heart into a mine field
    Which really only means I'll keep these wounds they tell me time heals
    Because my scars are souvenirs of the day dream that was real
    And my pain is a reminder of the life I got to feel...

    Fourteen:
    You struck me like a hypodermic needle in a haystack
    And I wasn't looking for love but now I don't know the way back
    So I'm addicted to a drug that I never meant to take
    Imprisoned in a cage that I helped my captor make
    Irony in iron bars...

    Fifteen:
    They tell me that the past is the past but my past was the future
    And you're always in my brain, I swear your laugh is a tumor
    But it only served to hide the real you, like the mask of a shooter
    Your excuses don't hold water you see there's cracks in the pewter
    And the tracks of your suitor, mixed with the scent of his cologne
    Meant that even in the times we were together you still left me all alone...

    Sixteen:
    I will always remember you, every wrinkle on your skin
    The freckle on your eyelid, how your lips curl at the corners, the degree by which they bend
    The way you'd watch a sappy movie and save your tears up to the end
    The way you'd get lost in a gaze, the way you hated ball point pens...
    I will never forget your warmth.
    Not when my mom forgets my face or God forgets my name
    Not when the world begins to crumble and the stars all fade away...
    Not when the universe collapses way beyond all time space
    What I really want to tell you, is I guess I said all this to say...
    I will never let you go
    I will never let you go
    I will never...
    Let you go.

    P.S.
    Everyone still tells me my eyes lights up when I hear your name.
    So if you're ever in the dark...

    This piece is long, but well worth the read. It's easy to connect with, almost everyone has dealt with this issue and it's extremely easy to read. This is one of my favorite pieces in a long time and I actually meant to nominate it as well. With that said I'm voting an easy yes for me.

    Re: Syk0naut - 16 Reasons Sleep Is An Antiquated Art Form (2)

    the entertainment factor cannot be denied. it held my intrigue, and i l dig the poetic language and imagery. it really does take you on a ride and was simply fun to read.

    i struggle a bit inducting it into the OM HOF as it seems better suited for the poetry forum. But ill just pretend its a spoken word crossover verse and give it a solid yes

    I think it's a wrap, and it can probably be inducted now.
