Cubbyhole Confessions

By BillyJoeBobKellyGeorge, Gardena, CA

my hands clasped around
a world so wide
my mind cannot abide
to Earth's ocean tides
I ride my own waves
as lonesome as I may
I carve out my own caves
And bear the fears today
Fears of failure; successes too
Being sucked in by a vacuum
depressed violins
pressed against tissues and violence
try to scan my brain
but my cerebral membranes refuse
like a dead fuse
the triple A's are of no use
I am a broken lamp
shattered on the floor
nightmarish thoughts
and pots and pans
can't muffle the screams
i suppress inside
Even then, I can't undress my skeleton
x-ray my stomach
you'll find it empty
