[Poem] Reverie



Reverie

I revolved my life on your thoughts of me…

You promised bliss,
Addiction is all you give.


I climb to the highest skyscraper,
Gave it to you, expecting applauses
But got none, except bad blood, and clout chasing Savage lords.


Sometimes I hit jackpot
I get famous
That even my tears bring comforting words.


2nd or 3rd
I thrive to please you all
And slowly I get lost…


In you, Stupidity is applauded as wisdom
Recklessness, bravery
Its no longer, disrespect or arrogance, rather its savagery.


I fear my blood from my loins
Grow in the walls of the rainbow, squared in a white line
And drown in the spiralling of white complete with a thought line.


I can't even plan a party
Without seeking your opinion
My food and drinks you give.


Weigh me up in grams instantly
Cause you the instant graming machine,
Yes that's your job, scaling.


Last I weighed
I was just a little below the mark of living
Worry not I'm still sinking, now thoughts of suicide cloud my mind.


Flashy toys, and expensive things
Just a little more I will be like him
If I could just switch this figures, the birds see not.


I could go on and on
But the gloomy skies make their call
Its my time, bring the guillotine.


Drop it, be quick
Make sure its sharp and smiling
Drop it….


Drop it on my esteem, let me sink
I'm both thin and stupid
Or chubby and useless.


I've been body shamed
Because I couldn't attain this "perfect shape"
I hunger daily to attain this.


I hit the gym daily, not because I love it,
But what would my followers think?
I would rather loose a thousand of me.


Than loose a thousand followers
I know none of these people,
But they love my post daily.


I've grown so slim "the perfect body"
Combined with a big booty
I grew in the laboratory.


His seed, I flushed down the toilet,
Because what would they think?
"I got an instant baby?"


Ridiculous
Nostalgic
Astounding
Intelligent
Funny
Rich
Gifted
Smart
Bi
Sadistic
Useless
Crazy
Brave
Independent
Fresh
Sexy
Belle
Perfect
Smart
Expensive
Trendy
Cook
Fire
The list is endless.


All this I tried to be,
Just so when the instant graming machine
Weighs me, I will be worthy.


Guillotine...
Glue it in.

  1. This is amAzing!
    The things done for the gram, a fantasy world, slowly but surely eroding common sense.
    Beautiful work, Samuel.
