Unbearable Thoughts

Unbearable Thoughts

A Poem by BJ "Bunneh3000" Brown

based on thoughts and inspirations from Paramores - "Misguided Ghosts" To be featured in my upcoming book "ExIsT"


the echo of it

as it rings about my mind

leaves my heart spent and lost

paying a cost that has


no gain

no return

no receipt


while the speed of empty

paces me

tracing my smiles with mockery

a laughter that I just can’t take


it’s unbearable

to think of what is

what could have been

such distant ripples that still

toss me as they

surge and fall

forcing me to repeat the call


for relief

for the end


of this wrenching

so ghastly yet I’m not flinching

just gasping

at its effect and how long it’s lasting




So I compromise and exchange

my destructive flee

my Daytona 500 escape

for a purpose-filled me

one that pins that unbearable


upon breast

upon my chest


so that my heart may stand


so that my mind may breathe. Not



Because I’m convinced that this

insufferable piece of me

is meant to be

my downfall

so that I may

rebuild me


If only I could

bear the pain…
