Schizophrenia


Split mind / divided soul


Disintegration, deteriorating mental faculties


Disoriented


A future without direction


Moving blindly, I walk further into the increasing void


The expanding depth of solitude, increasing resistance to ingestion


I stand at the edge of the medicine cabinet, unraveling the labels


Plastic cylinders containing pressed powder daydreams


Beautifully dangerous pharmaceutical hallucination


Walking images that overlap into my reality


Only conscious in the corner of my eye


Breathing only in the absence of actual vantage points


The stale whispers talk, fighting for vocal dominance


Remnants of past conversations


She speaks in a violent clarity


Her fragile words shatter with an echo


A promise lingers in the air


A proposed permanence of loyalty until death


I run the tips of my fingers across my wrist


The piercing thump of my pulse reminds me I’m among the living


An irrational collection of empty skin suits


Relying on glossy pages of self-help books


Declining generations of genetic cum shots


Standing in the aisles of libraries, masturbating to amateur psychology


Deciphering symptoms between failed published studies


Today, I’m a schizophrenic


Tomorrow I’ll find a new disease between the pages of a children’s book
