Sick

Sick

A Poem by Karina Longo
"

Picture yourself reading a lyrics from this unknown, little indie-rock band. There you go.

"
I'm sick 
Well, I'm sick 
I am sick of you 
Sick of me 

The lights keep clicking in my
Head, heads up, hands down to you 
While you kill 
You kill the silence and shoot our 
dreams away to the moon 
Further away, you won't see them any soon

I'm sick, in the contagious room of the sick 
Sick, sick 
Like b******s barking of pain 
The lonely dogs, the counterfields of the sane 
The sadistic blurs no one could ever blame 
We're basicaly insane 

The nights keep passing by, another vintage car
Another cup of tea, noises tasting so cold
No sense, nonsense, I'm tired of the same 
Old s**t so please let's take a ride to never
Again 

I'm sick, in the contagious room of the sick 
Sick, sick
Like b******s barking of pain 
The lonely dogs, the counterfields of the sane
The sadistic blur no one could ever blame
We're basicaly insane 

We're sick 
Sick of being sick 
Or maybe just 
Eternally lost souvenirs 
We're sickened within

I'm sick

The sound of the word "sick" repeated throughout the poem gives it an special sonority and rhythm that fits well with the rest of the poem, also the speed of the narrative alongside the chaotic feeling to finally you end up feeling the sickness of it all, is good.

Sick
The word says a lot
No need to expound
Me too, sick of double talk,
two timing, two faced

This is sick.Sickly twisted and infinitely sickening.I am sickened by the idea of such a sickly sensational poetic path to the sickness that is life.The picture of the lady in the hair rollers is kinda sick too.

Normal is overrated.
Sounds like the voice of one trying to cast off convention and live their lives for real. Great piece, thanks for sharing

A deliciously fab read!!

Keep up the good work!! :)

Nice use of emotions in the poem.
