I Finally Understand

Apathy trickles, and runs, and flows toward something
I can not begin to understand.
I shake my head.
I scratch my chin.
I read a magazine when I can.
I do everything which makes me seem human.
But still the apathy trickles, and runs, and flows toward something
I do not want to understand;
And yet, I feel it at the base of my spine.
And tired, and hurt, and tired, and sad, and tired;
And mostly, I’m just tired.
I’m tired of listening, I’m tired of caring, I’m tired of wanting
To be something more than which I am.
Apathy trickles, and runs, and flows toward something
I finally understand:
I hate you.

    This is continuation of sorts of my previous poem “inhuman regrets.” A kind of Patrick Bateman anthology, lol.

    Patrick Bateman, love the reference.

    I like to dissect girls. Did you know I’m utterly insane?

    that hits rather close to home, except that YOU’re the one able to write it

  • I guess that’s the ultimate compliment then? thank you for taking the time to read it!
