The Man In The Planet

The Man In The Planet

A Poem by GrandDystopia
"

Inspired by David Lynch's Eraserhead

"

Levers.

He is forever pulling the levers.

The levers that control your life.

Unknowing.

Unknowing, you are of his influence.

Dreams.

You see him there, in your dreams.

Forever pulling the levers.

The levers that control your life.

Nightmare.

He plunges you into your worst nightmare.

Noises.

Noises that grate your mind.

And shatter your senses.

Waking.

Attempting to wake from your horrible nightmare.

As the Man in the Planet.

Forever pulls the levers.

The levers that control your life.
