emotions ii

these feelings, surrounding
holding, blood coursing through all veins
filling extremities
surrounded by unending stimuli
stimuli stimuli stimuli
scream you like
scream all you like
no one will hear you
except the old man listening
watching, waiting
hanging solemnly
you will soon come
asking questions
questioning those questions
questioning all answers
these feelings you have
try, try, oh try to put them in words
clearly describing exactly what it is you are feeling
you try and try and try
the words, they never come
all you hear is phrases
what sounds like words
and you try again some more
that sounds like this and this sounds like that
jibber jabber tit tat knick knack phatty whack
who says words like that?
in fact who says words should rhyme on time
with mics that stand for life
time warrants we speed up the process
but why? why oh why you ask
so much you sound like child
toddler five, curious of life
sad not glad or mad that the world turns
without your say so, constantly changing
at the speed of thought
freaking me out
I loved it when everything was the same
back then I was safe
dependent on giants for my way of life
trapped in cages built by pages
who work for wages to feed my rage
is unexplained for
this constantly spinning table cannot hold me
much longer
I will fall off the edge of the earth
into the abyss that is death
