    and we’re off!
    no matter which way we may push and we pull
    we float on at the whim of the hands of people
    a draft magnified from the wing of a seagull
    echoing ripples from bells found upon the steeple

  • kapanga commented on the post, simplify 6 years ago

    cut out pictures scattered across the desk
    clothes on the floor – work uniform, pile of briefs
    sprawled across the bed
    a thought-revoking show playing from the only light in the room
    mind, unmotivated, weary, cluttered, empty.

    people listen more when you speak less

  • kapanga commented on the post, electrocute 6 years, 1 month ago

    you would take a chair, let the shock raise your hair
    since when did you care if life ended up fair
    i glared as you jumped, i envied you
    because at least you dared

  • kapanga commented on the post, checkmate 6 years, 1 month ago

    there’s always a better move, don’t play me
    no matter what you do it don’t phase me
    knight A6; don’t take it, cause baby i’m going crazy
    clash of the titans. the king died for his queen
    but the board fell apart at the seams
    and the queen fell along with the kingdom in not-so-quiet screams

  • kapanga commented on the post, café 6 years, 1 month ago

    she sat in the corner, one of those hipster types
    i walked up with a thermos, whiskey mixed with sprite
    her lips looked nice, draped in red paint
    i cared too much. she made my head faint
    “good to see you again,” she said carefully
    “looks like you’re doing well,” she said warily
    “been drinking much?” she asked carefully
    “no,” i smiled. life…[Read more]

  • kapanga commented on the post, punished 6 years, 1 month ago

    chained to the wall, whip and belt aquiver
    light at the end of the tunnel turns into a sliver
    mister is it a crime that i happen to miss her
    sour taste like a blister in the way of a tongue twister

  • kapanga commented on the post, bronze 6 years, 1 month ago

    bronze. might as well be the color of shit
    her eyes said to me, not hesitating a bit
    if you’re not first, why try
    if you’re the worst, let it die
    life is a competition
    a bloodthirsty disposition
    i hate it.

  • kapanga commented on the post, destined 6 years, 2 months ago

    this is not destined, but it is determined. there are agents in our lives that dance and intertwine and speak to each other in a language that we do not understand, conspiring and forming our bodies, our souls. chemical impulses, physiological and psychological yearnings, experiences, and an innate animalistic nature that we aim to control and…[Read more]

  • kapanga commented on the post, weakling 6 years, 2 months ago

    crushed in her palm
    i swear i gave it my all
    but i am only human
    lost in the body i grew in
    i am weak to her meek sensibilities

  • kapanga commented on the post, embellish 6 years, 3 months ago

    all the details in her head
    grew into something more as she lay in bed
    until it was a different monster altogether
    and she lay there, eye to eye with the beast
    forever

  • kapanga commented on the post, weathered 6 years, 3 months ago

    the wrinkles in his face
    pointed to a distant place
    where his mind had learned to wander.
    in his eyes was a hollow space
    in his mouth was a bitter taste
    in his mind, spring – of which he was much fonder

  • kapanga commented on the post, murder 6 years, 3 months ago

    with one fell swoop, one fell, drooped
    over the shoulder of an opposing soldier

  • kapanga commented on the post, features 6 years, 3 months ago

    her features. her features so unique
    from her phalanges to her high cheeks
    a sneak peek of heaven’s peak
    perfection in her smile, confident yet meek.
    playful yet commanding as late july’s heat
    and i swear that everytime we meet
    i think of her tangled in my sheets
    clothes on the floor and above, dangling feet

  • kapanga commented on the post, cool 6 years, 3 months ago

    ice cold, a nice soul lost within a tight hole
    pressured down the “right road” multiplied by five fold
    this is cool dawg this is cool
    fuck school fuck the man and fuck all the rules
    this is cool dawg this is cool
    society played him, tossed him, used like a tool

  • “responsibility” is made up.
    do we owe anyone anything?
    my “responsibilities” are nothing more than made up titles;
    false pretenses under which people have a reason to live.
    they say as you mature, the more responsible you become.
    i beg to differ.

  • kapanga commented on the post, musical 6 years, 4 months ago

    inside my head was musical
    but not a cheesy, break out into song and dance musical
    maybe i’m so vain i never tire of my voice
    or maybe i would rather hear a song
    instead of the noise.
    because when there is music,
    a refined, primal sense comes out within me
    and the simplest melody is all that matters

  • kapanga commented on the post, real 6 years, 4 months ago

    we cannot know that anything in the external world is real
    but my thoughts are real
    my feelings are real, my hopes, my perceptions;
    no, they are only real to me. so perhaps i am not real to you
    cogito ergo sum

  • kapanga commented on the post, visit 6 years, 4 months ago

    some places are better left unvisited
    unthought of; out of sight, out of mind
    if i don’t visit, then how can i know that it exists
    and if i would rather it not exist
    then why does my mind continue to visit

  • kapanga commented on the post, choose 6 years, 4 months ago

    life is nothing more than a series of choices
    a cacophony of harmonious noises
    so don’t ask me to choose between the two
    how could anything possibly be worth more than you
