Hand Me A Shovel And I Swear I'll Bury You Alive

Hand Me A Shovel And I Swear I'll Bury You Alive

A Poem by jumbie's #1 fan

this is my new fav


 how many times can i go over it in my head?

how many damn times?

always coming up with a different result?

a new memory

a different shard of glass embedded in my skin

one i overlooked in the beginning

all the things i forgot

all the things i never knew i knew

are now so vivid 

whenever my thoughts turn to you


all the things that made me smile

all the things that you said

now the lies that you feed

are now the reasons i bleed


god i'm so sick of this

of you

of having to replay moments in my head

like being in an old movie theater

in which i'm chained to the seat

forced to sit here and relive every waking moment

day after day after---

GOD, i wish i could forget!

bury it

bury you

far beneath the depths of my mind

never to be unearthed again


it's probably good


that we never got to talk about it

that there was never a resolution

that i never got any closure


but if you ever came up to me

allowing me that closure

the only way so...fitting...

so "morally necessary"


if you ever, and i mean EVER

approach me,


You better hope to GOD 

i'm not holding a shovel.

it's sounds crazed and insane. but aren't we all? at one point everyone has felt like this about whatever "you" stands for to them. it's mad and it has passion..it's great.

This poem gives birth to a question - who is "you"? who, what, how is she/he/it that is represented by the "you". It's a good story, but more of a novelistic story than a poem, in my opinion, but still, it's intriguing.
