Inspirational Conundrum

Heres to not being inspired...

not that I want to be inspired or admired...

time moves swifter when no one is looking...

no one including myself...

putting my self on the shelf for a while...

not forcing the thoughts to flow...

mile after mile I can walk in this fashion...

giving up passion in place of a smile...

a glee to be free of myself and all others...

what it would be like to be free of the bother...

I am however possessed of a whip...

my self and me in a session of pain..

it passes for pleasure because I have known few...

I crave it and it won't let me be...

so I sit down pen bleeding more...

sometimes I wonder if it might run out...

then find I ways to bleed different then before...

a heart that grows more blood for the need...

how convenient to have such a gift...

to be able to never slack in red...

If it weren't a matter of will...

I'd just take a pill...

reclining taciturn on my bed...

I will me to torture me still...

I need my session like I need little else...

conundrum or not it places me where I was before...

taking myself off the shelf...

putting a few more drops on the page.

this was very well written, some inspiration comes from a dark place but it is that which connects with so many. as not all are so gifted to express their pain.

beautiful Rating it up of course

lol thanks nighthag, being a dark poet seems cool up until it becomes apparent to you that you cant seem to get out of it. I keep trying to write things that are or could be considered humorous and they always come out as mocking of someone, maybe even myself. Maybe that is a flaw in me. If it works for you then I suppose it aught to work for me but still....
