Game Over

I’M DEAD! I’M DEAD! I was in over my head!

I’ve been stuck in space, stuck in a game, stuck in my mind.

I had to fight for a lonely piece of bread.

I had to find against my own kind.

I lost my friends, my friends to this stupid, stupid game.

It was going to be fun, they said.

I don’t even remember why we did it; it was just oh so lame.

Instead of living, we died instead.

Space is definitely not an open place.

I know this for sure.

We told each other it wasn’t competitive and to go at our own pace.

But when someone decided to involve food in the game, it became too painful to endure.

We’re dead, we’re dead. We were over our own heads. 

We were separated somehow, I don’t know when. Why can’t we be all together when we’re dead?

Now we roam space looking for company and bread.

Mist Between the Trees

I don’t know who I am.

May I ask, who are you?

Am I alive or dead?

All I can see are trees.

Even where I should be.

Right where my body stands.

All except for my feet.

I see you have found me?

How long have I been here?

Why can’t I talk or move?

No longer corporal.

I know you can’t see me.

You’re right in front of me.

Now I guess I am dead.

I’m dead between the trees.

Can’t wake up

Can’t wake up.

Can’t slow down.

My mind is a child’s toy top.

Spinning wild around and around.

A maze of ivy and barbed wire is all I see.

I swear to god those voices are fucking killing me!

The grimy smiles and sickly eyes…

I hate them all.

They all mock me as they laugh!

They laugh as I run around hopelessly.

Circles and circles around I go.

I cannot see anything that’s a sure sign of me getting out.

Large shrouded figures chase me with glee.

They tip toe and toe, dancing around one another.

Dancing around one another to get me.

They have no true faces under their primitive pig and ram masks.

I’ve now reached a dead end which leads to an endless dark tunnel.

There’s no way out, and also like as if there’s no way in.

Am I alive?

Or am I dreaming?

“Shhh… you’re neither.”
