• Burnt pieces of flesh
    overcooked on the
    iron stove

    hearts of stone
    boil in the pan
    hardened by the

    ache.

    Overwrought and
    spoiled we learned
    how to

    way down to

    Frenzied face
    all feeling the heat
    of the excitement
    tomorrow is
    just a blink away

    but oh to get through
    today
    mistakes were made
    and we’ll all go mad

  • HoldenLyric commented on the post, tumble 5 years, 8 months ago

    It all tumbled down
    after word broke that
    he was arrested and she
    was pregnant and the chaos
    was drug induced as always

    and no one knew where to turn
    because sights were clouded and
    judgement was unattainable
    in these chaotic times
    youth induced
    swelling

  • HoldenLyric commented on the post, pairs 5 years, 8 months ago

    Not every pea has a
    pod not every sock has
    a match not every animal
    has a pair to board the arc
    or kiss goodnight

    Not every star has a
    twinkle in its eye as the
    darkness dominates the
    sky

    not every seed has
    soil
    Each sentence doesn’t
    need a structure.
    not every song has
    meaning.

  • HoldenLyric commented on the post, strung 5 years, 8 months ago

    Strung out on
    Boredom

    Watered down
    enthusiasm
    on the rocks

    You said you can’t
    remember the last time
    you were happy
    Life’s a joke
    and if you laugh hard enough,
    maybe the punchline
    will save us all

  • HoldenLyric commented on the post, sleeved 5 years, 8 months ago

    skin sleeved in ink
    illustrating the many
    pot holes of the human
    mind
    mistakes
    memories
    etched roadmaps

    but it’s all neither here
    nor there.

  • HoldenLyric commented on the post, pixels 5 years, 8 months ago

    The pixels in your eyes
    tell me we’re just pieces
    particles woven together by
    imagination to become what
    we are and whom we wish
    and god forbid your pixels mix
    with mine and then what?

    What a mixed up
    imagination this world
    has

  • HoldenLyric commented on the post, wrath 5 years, 8 months ago

    I felt the wrath.
    I felt it as it
    emanated from you
    pores

    you looked at me like
    you used to know me
    like you used to
    want to give me
    the world

    and now I feel the
    wrath
    as it splits you
    in two

    I beg your
    pardon

    Pardon me
    while I walk
    out the backdoor

    this world isn’t for
    the weak
    hearted
    minded
    boned

  • HoldenLyric commented on the post, flee 5 years, 8 months ago

    We flee from the meaning
    as if it were the plague because
    we don’t want to know why
    or when this life’s going to make
    sense

    because to live is to die
    no matter who you are
    and we spend the whole time
    loving
    just to feel
    we just want to
    feel

  • My mind decomposes with the days. I
    can feel its decay as I lay on the couch
    playing video games for hours upon hours
    and I’ll say what’s this life for?

    With one ear to the ground, it’s what we’ll
    soon become, it’s what we’re searching for
    six feet under,
    well we used to be
    on top of the world.

  • HoldenLyric commented on the post, fools 5 years, 8 months ago

    We’re fools. We cheers one glass at a time, to make them seem significant, deserved. We’re just bitter fools waiting for tomorrow’s glass and I tell you it’s a shame it’s a crying shame because this life isn’t for the fools, but we’re in it and we’re stuck here until someone somewhere does something about it we’re all stuck in this round earth…[Read more]

  • Do you know how many murders go undetected? It’s kind of scary when you think about it. International waters, deserts, there are still places without eyes. You start to wonder when the eye of the camera will go blind, get blurry, tired, sleep. Maybe this world isn’t for humanity. Sleep is our weakness, and our eyes close if we let them.

  • HoldenLyric commented on the post, alarming 5 years, 8 months ago

    It’s alarming. To think that today I turned 21 and this is the last birthday I’ll ever look forward to. Alarming, life’s hitting me like a brick and I can’t seem to remember where I put my goddamn keys. Or my goddamn shoes. It’s a cycle. A shitty cycle. Goddamn

  • HoldenLyric commented on the post, montage 5 years, 8 months ago

    Montage, well hell that’s a lot like collage. A montage of images. I think I need something a little different. I need something different than yesterday.

  • HoldenLyric commented on the post, collage 5 years, 8 months ago

    Do you really think people see their lives flash by when they die? A collage of images. I doubt it. I don’t know all I know is death is inevitable and if you don’t stop worrying about it it will kill you.

  • Let me embellish on my point a little here.
    We’re not really made for this.

    But my fingers type and some how my drink
    gets refilled and sometimes you’ve got

    to pay for what’s yours.
    Sometimes you’ve got to fight for it.

  • HoldenLyric commented on the post, cave 5 years, 12 months ago

    We watched cave-divers on the TV in awe. What are they called? Splunkers? Something like that? haha

    They were diving into parts of the world that had never been discovered and I was jealous and scared from them all the same while I sat on my couch and ate some BBQ potato chips.

  • HoldenLyric commented on the post, sanctity 6 years ago

    Tell the church bells to stop ringing. It’s an annoying way to tell time, but hey, if you grew up in or around a church, it’s easy to freak someone out by telling them the time without looking at a watch. Most people don’t notice church bells, or even know what they mean.

    I never really cared much for the sanctity of it all.

    Not to menti…[Read more]

  • HoldenLyric commented on the post, society 6 years ago

    Don’t think just write they say, and I know society won’t be like that forever. 1984, Big Brother? Yeah, I see it happening every day.

    So you’ve got society here playing show and tell with you emotions and

    Humanity’s just a part of it.

    Yeah, we need a better way to live, but I’ve got no suggestions, so I just bow my head and smoke that…[Read more]
