Lost in the Ruins of our World

Our beautiful picture breaks
Into a complicated puzzle
And I try to find myself amongst the rumble
In the ruins of our world
Its like playing WHERE’S WALDO
And I can’t put together the pieces
Of what use to be picture perfect
Words at a lost
Or maybe stuck
Implanted in my Adam’s apple
Lost seeds of my mind’s garden
That will never blossom
To a beautiful scented bouquet
To see the light of day
In the eyes of you
Can’t spare the time to find them
I’m preoccupied
Trying to survive
The invasion of the megatons
That weigh down upon me
From the pregnant bellies
Of my thoughts that leave me trampled
Raped by your absence
Leaving my gray matter
To spew into pancake batter
Looking back at our shattered
Kodak moments
Waltzing down memory lane
Once again
Finding myself swimming in the debris
Of our portraits
Our say cheese frozen dish platters
Cold meals for my starving gray matter
Framed in the walls of my skull
Pictures that frame me in blue
Though our time has died
I look forward for a resurrection
A harder comeback
Harder than the stiff erections of the memories
That fuck my mind up
Everytime I think of you
Its like sometimes you really fuck my head up
Red velvet swirls of ecstasy
Got me tripping on the broken memories
Can’t think straight
And when I do
It leads straight to you
Endless figure eights
You skate
On my brain
You wounded my mind
My body and soul
And I keep picking at the scab
That tries to heal over the pain
But I love the pain
Its a bittersweet reminder
That once I was loved…
So the scab never heals
For I never want to lose the feeling
Of how this use to feel…..

Artist's Description

I’ve been out of my relationship for some weeks now and I truly do wish it hadn’t gone the way it went. I now just want her back….but she wishes to be single….I must learn to cope with the reality and stop drifting off into trying to live within the past of the shadows of our memories.
I wanted her to be my “Forever” …but forever has died….Sun-Nov.29,2009

I remembered when it use to be like This
