Wimpy Kid with a Big Imagination

Shadiness adores you Bleakness is exhaustin’ Now, I’m so fatigued and my volume is set way low Because you tore me down with social media craze… You were there just for the temporarily show…you know… Buy me black and blue flowers for the grave of my old ways… 2016 – my pride and my weaknesses take advantage of me… I'm in pieces, Jesus... let me muse on your past life... I love you, companion. I appreciate you, Son of God. I close my eyes Losing track of time... I’m too young and foolish to be God’s Chosen One I am nothing compared to a million men… First of all, I was in the wrong…I want to belong… My mistakes have put me at stake I suppose I was being a player…a rights’ slayer… I’m reduced to this bitter-salty lake… Something smells fishy here… I sense some conspiracy garbage once more – what about you get dumped, you myth What in the world is wrong with me? 21st Century – the fury it reduces me to is something peculiar to the highest degree… I’m sippin' on the Lament liquor - cheers to that, lad… Schizophrenia manics made me bust out in tears and fears – from past peers… I’m a flame, hunted down like game… Drum rolls…drum rolls… drum rolls… On my knees…speaking words of wisdom from the Holy Bible... Watching you swing on your last string in a daze - you're so damn unkind CUZ you didn't let me know... How to let go... CUZ I can't let go...what's been done has been done. Rapidly, I can outrun these obstacles, sneering at viciously... A crease of a wicked smile runs down my face... "You can't catch me! Ha! Ha. Ha! Ha. Ha!" I said childishly You’ll smell another scent of freedom That's been eavesdropping on my violent, maniac-like, criminal battles… Riding on my crazy caterpillar cattles…:P Not all dimensions are fairies and flowers Magic doesn't exist...or does it? Paranormal splendor sanctify me with salamander swords (kind words that sting) Diamonds seem to sprinkle I’m spiraling like tree branches… Misery monsoons made me a mistake in my madness… Hypocritical lies you spoke to me once upon a dream Hypothetical facts squeeze out the opinions that ruined my self-esteem... But, we are...surely...on God's team...? Right? I glance at the spiralling galaxies on your right hand A pirate ship with a shown in the veins, beneath the skin... lands, colliding into one another... You'll see another light side of me You'll see another light side of me... I'm on my knees, sucking on my thumb in a hundred degrees weather...

I wish I could say more about how your poem moved me in a variety of ways, but the fact of the matter is, if I told you all the things that stood out to me in this, I'd be here typing for quite awhile, and there comes a time when we all need to sleep (lol!) ... Love your style of writing, my friend. The only thing I was lost on was your crazy caterpillar cattles ... I think you wrote that one on Mars, forgetting that I live on Earth ;) An easy fave from me.

Wow, JW. This was quite a different flavor than your previous work I've read ... it's a roller-coaster ride of images, and I'm back-tracking just to hold on. You have that metaphorical magic that your sister does, but heavier on the spiritual references. You took me through such a variety of emotions, and each line was a surprise. I'm not sure, but I somehow get the feeling someone upset you over Facebook or some other social media outlet.

Towards the end your Big Imagination was really emphasized ... "I glance at the spiraling galaxies on your right hand A pirate ship with a flag ... is show in the veins beneath the skin much like two lands colliding into one another" ... so ripe with meaning here ... and if you can see that all in a hand, then just imagine what else you can see?

That happened to me once before, and it exploded into an unnecessarily long debate that lasted dozens of posts. I now avoid most of that drama, backing very far away from it!
