The List of Logic

I dream up answers as I choose a mind
I spend decay and then I pay for time
Puzzling to think I could resist
To pick an end and add it to the list

One more day and then one more excuse
Two more times in case I am confused
Frightening to think I need some life
Some more denial and an enterprise

I want a reason to believe in truth
But being alone still tends to disapprove
Puzzling instincts hiding in their hate
All around me as they procreate

Now I see that it was always lies
All dishonesty that was being justified
Frightening to think that I’m alone
Adapting on and turning into stone

So much nothing and then so much pain
Buzzing like insects as I go insane
Logical to say I should resist
An honest ending to an endless list
