Forgotten I laid, underneath the bed,
What has happened to me?
A question I ask too often,
Keeps me from being free.
There it comes again, mad.
What has happened that makes it so?
What action have I committed,
That has put me in a place so wrong?

I do not understand it.
It claims many things.
Lies. The lot.
I cover my ears.

"Who are you now?" it asks,
As if it did not know.
"How have you changed,
why cannot you be like long ago?

I do not answer so stupid words.
It is now reaching for the door.
Bah! Like if I care.
Let her go out and be alone.

"I have lost you" now I hear,
"And now I go out of this door,
and I will find you,
and I will bring you back home!"

Hmm, I'm dumb. I forgot my line.
Said Nilly, forgetting the line that he was going to say
So Storm went on a quest for the sacred ketchup bottle
and hit Nilly in the head with it to restart his brain
However, Nilly fell down and was dead,
so Storm said "I think I dented his brain!"

I wrote a beautiful poem today

I wrote a beautiful poem today,
Though it's certainly not this one.
This one's too nasty for my tastes,
Yet I continue to pound key after key,
My keyboard raw after overuse.
I am sorry for having given this machine so much abuse.
Oh, am I rhyming now? Sorry, I hadn't noticed.
Oh well, it's time for your cue.

This is a live without purpose, devoid of meaning. I love it.

Not how you're suppose to do it. A person gives you a line to start your poem, and then you finish it.

This is a life without purpose, devoid of meaning. I love it.
Those people with dreams. Aspirations. I rise above it.
I possess true freedom, more valuable than gold.
Yes, it is a such a privilege, a sight to behold.
Before I die, or grow old, or learn what life means,
At least I'll live one, more than what it quite seems.

You tell me what it means

You tell me what it means.
I'm sick of second guessing
What do you want me to know?

I don't know what you're thinking
I don't have a clue
I don't even know if I really have you

I've been losing sleep

I've been losing sleep.
This makes sense, considering I don't need it anymore.
Not once does the feeling of drowsiness start to take hold,
never do I get the urge to just go lie down and rest.
All things considered, being turned into an immortal demon was one of the greatest things to ever happen to me, though sometimes...
I miss the feeling of having dreams.

You don't remember? It's on your jersey.
You're 9542? You must've come in right after me!
We could form an alliance!

Do you remember anything?
From outside, where there's light?
I don't, but they say it's marvelous, and I want to see it.
You could help me, and we both could see it.

What do you say, comrade?
