A Poem by yashsickle

Work in progress

Satellite helmets sear through dreams- 

while bland popsicle sticks furiously slur distraught pianos.

Clattering of open windows ring through closed minds. 

Moonlit memories break out in a sweat, frantically dashing through the fields. 

Inexperience, the weapon every child wields.

Maniacal movements of tribal celebration, followed by Sunday night procrastination. 

Eyeballs, Eyeballs, flood the halls and classrooms- 

to peek on mondaine blessings of future sherlocks.

To seek the rare blessing of medical warlocks.

I collapse on efforts while shaking the hand of opportunity

Burning city of empathy glares at me through the blaze

Welcoming it, I stay there for what seems like days. 

Nonsense they speak, even the brightest of days burns to a bleak. 

Nonsense they seek, finger tips wreaking of beauty and cigarettes.

Windowsills of childhoods begin to chip.

No more coming home with a busted lip.

No more coming home.

Solving mysteries alone.

Paying for the phone. 

Sidewalks upon sidewalks careen.

Monochrome vision doesn't seem so obscene.

I can't go home, I can't go back to where I've been.
