Charles Manson was always a good influence

Charles Manson was always a good influence

A Poem by Plagued Monumentally

Checking the milk cartoon to see if someone is looking
for my former self
but instead the darkness that's spilling under my ten dollar IKEA blinds
eventually finds it's way into my bed
and I wonder if it's me

Inhale. Exhale. Repeat.
When I was little I used to think it was the natural way to calm down,
but now it cigarettes are consuming my innocence
with each inhale I take; the smoke is over-flooding China
If I chose a personality and stick with it
maybe I wouldn't have such a hard time consuming everyone else's.

Sometimes I freeze and wonder where I went
if somewhere my 10-year-old self is dancing with my grandparents somewhere
but then I realize that my grandparents are dead
so maybe that wasn't such a good visualization.

Teenager-hood - Universe;
impressionable, pro-mistakes, experimental
rivers of self-pity and attention, 
but most of all
the will to fit in and try to find yourself

The cigarette ashes fall just as fast as my tears
maybe someday i'll be strong enough to collect my fears
but right now my Peter Jackson Lite Kingsize pack is calling my name.

I like how different and down to earth this feels like from the milk carton in the beginning to the "Inhale. Exhale. Repeat." then that third stanza, forth and then ending. Nice write.

What appears like a dysfunctional mind now may at another time be experienced as genius that no one else understands. It prepares itself. Nice write!

I like this kind of poetry. Free thoughts and took reader to many place. I had to read a few times for pleasure. Life can make us crazy. My mind wander away and I must regroup and begin again.
"Teenager-hood - Universe;
impressionable, pro-mistakes, experimental

but most of all

No weakness in this amazing poem.
