.Only Fifteen

Measly me
Easily pleased
Forever deceived
I am a disease

I am not a boomerang. I am a frisbee.
I know ’cause when they throw me
They do not wait for my return
They let the dog have its turn

After all, who wants to take it back into their hands?
With all the spittle and grains of sand
No one wants what the dog threw away
No one wants me. I want No one.

  1. “No one wants me. I want No one.”
    a strong line…..a relatable one….

  2. nice one. but fifteen passes by quickly and pretty soon you realize that everyone’s a discarded frisbee trying to get thrown into the air for a momentary thrill over and over again. some catch the thermals and stay afloat forever. or so the legend goes 🙂

  7. Whackster: Why should I ever worry about what will never be?
    I can always walk away even if no one will follow me.
    I am not a stalker. I am not a follower.
    I will walk alone on a road I will call my own.

  8. but a road that is empty can often be lonely
    and even though we often know that these moments will last
    how about the times when the pain hits our hearts?
    and then we’ll be old men at journey’s end
    looking back and dreaming of how things could have been

  9. It is not a straight path that I wish to walk
    There will be many twists, turns and forks
    I will stand at crossroads and look all ways
    I may find someone else who has chosen my way

  10. You may find happiness but at a great risk
    but thats the same deal we’re all embroiled with
    The words will never hurt, but how about the sticks?
    And the sacrifice of worldly things that come along with it?

  11. It is only wood that they are made of
    I can always burn them down
    Till all that’s left is charcoal
    Scattered across the ground

  12. You are naive and quite full of it
    it is admirable, and something that propells ur dreams
    but pretty soon you realize that reality is a sheen
    that it will wear down and eventually,
    the ugliness will be seen

  13. I am not full of anything
    But the essence of my dreams
    And dreams are more realistic
    Than anything you may seek
    I know the ugliness inside of me
    Like the back of my hand
    I know my motives and my intentions
    Better than any other man

    I know the difference between the ego and the id
    I know my shadow will always drag my feet
    But I also know why it exists
    It is to prove that the light is shining on me
    And ignorance has never really been bliss
    So I will not follow my shadow and step into shit

  14. Your darkside is pain
    Yet it is also gain
    numbing you in the dark
    and preparing you
    to face the light again

    It is torture no doubt
    But i know what you’re saying
    there is no power like belief
    to help your dreams to be reached.
