Premium Member The God Complex

hidden under layers of ink

Inside you
a whole new world

You … exist

the game is ‘resist’

such an anxious world
the questions forever 

pressing on 

wanting answers
your gardens soiled and turned

new seeds for blooming

your muddied waters
become in your mind...

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

narcissistic self-serving authorities,

Inmate #0459587

ever hear those obnoxious individuals claim that a lot of
