My Missing Piece……….

Posted: October 28, 2013 in Quickie

Longing for the heartache.
I revel in the pain.
Sometimes I wonder if I’m still sane.
I’m incomplete when my heart doesn’t break.

Outside, shivering in the night’s cold.
I hold the key, but I’m not as bold.
It’s news that nobody knows.
I’m incomplete when I’m whole.

I cut myself and say its to see if I still bleed.
A lie I’ve told so many times, I’m starting to believe.
I love you, but my heart is behind bars.
I’m incomplete without my scars.

I stare at you a lot, so I can miss you when you’re gone.
I torture myself with thoughts of you when I’m bored.
I’m not looking to beat the odds.
I’m incomplete and I think its fun.

And there I was hoping love would be easy.
I torture myself for being so naive.
I torture myself for loving it.
When I crash and burn, guess whose fault it would be.
I torture myself and finally admit,
I’m incomplete without My Asian Kid.

… Wide awake in bed, words in my brain, “secretly you love this, do you even wanna go free?”… Lorde

Half-smoked cigarettes in make-shift ashtrays in a horribly lit apartment, with nothing in their right place.
Scraps of paper lying around, we’re surrounded by piles of ashes-the room filled with smoke.
We’re lying around killing time, at the same time; we’re killing ourselves.
Smothering our lungs with smoke and taking shots to the liver-but we love it..
We love all our vices…
We talk about the shit we should do. And the shit we’ve not done. But never about the shit we have done.
Maybe it because all that we do is nothing.
Nothing but make memories.
Individual memories.
Different memories.
We are connected by our memories, so we spend all day making memories about making plans to make future memories.
Its all jibber jibber really.
Its all trivial.
But we tell ourselves that its worth our effort, just so we don’t get too pessimistic and stop trying, because we have hope that in the midst of all the non-challance we might make significant memories.
We blow smoke out of our lungs with the confidence of someone who has it all figured out.
But we don’t.
We’re all friends and we know each other.
But none of us really know ourselves.
But we’re figuring out.
“I had a dream i could buy my way into heaven” a voice called out.
“When i woke i spent that on a necklace” another voiced cried out.
And we start talking about death, and how we’re making memories to try to counter the finality of mortality.
But we’re over the depression.
To be depressed is to throw in the towel. To give in to the terrorist..
So we avoid the subject and talk about shit…
