What's Wrong With Me?

What's Wrong With Me?

A Poem by Dennis The Tiger Cat (dave)
"

.

"
i eat ideas
i use the black
as my perfect stage
have you ever been there?
 into the nothing
have you ever used it?
 as your dear something
tell me of your pain
let us compare
i can show you reasons
why it does not matter
i live to die
i use this pain
i eat that loss
for my, motivation
there is a use
but there is no cure
there is a purpose
called our fervent reason
we exist to eat
we exist to f**k
we exist to bleed
we exist to die
so there is to hope
but there are two shades
one sun one moon
we live in this light
cast upon
flesh machines
making bloody thoughts
dreaming exotic nights
from individual reason
and some play music
so some write poems
and some paint pictures
but most do nothing
but there is no difference
and there never was
as cause exceeds us
even the most important
   is not one thing
like ink in water
like snow in deserts
like air in space
all it will dissolve
just give it time
nothing will last
and there is no memory
in the earth's demise
all it does is it will end
not with a sound
not with a shape
just a residue
of time and space

Your ink in water I saw in slow motion. It took me back to school where I struggled with ink blots and a useless school pen because I couldn't afford a decent fountain pen. My stories marred by ink blots and teacher's red pen circling them.

I know black so that's why I try to stay near the light.

'What' s wrong with me'? I do believe that is a question most of us ask ourselves at times during our lives.
