    The Others

    Alive in a world where others only exist
    when I need them to; floating along alone,
    in felicity and completely content.

    Eyes closed, in absolute control,
    and emotionless; Just the way I like it.
    Silent; but the music in my mind
    knows exactly what I want to hear.

    This is the grin of someone
    who answers to no one but himself.
    This is the stride of a man
    who lives without consequence.

    I am a head-bobbing happiness machine.
    A smiling, dancing, singing
    example of life perfected.
    Using only those who stand to benefit me;
    All others may as well be unseen or dead.

    I care not for anything
    but personal paradise.
    My mind---a mirage;
    but existing inside is a brilliant
    oasis of self-satisfaction.

    Holy Horse of the Devil
    Trying to get to neon Heaven
    Laughing out loud wistful gallop
    Berating the artificial ceiling

    Can't stop the upwards decent
    You know that the fall is coming
    Like a helicopter seed
    Twisting into vacancy

    Will you ever find the answer?
    Does the light really exist?

    Hush little dragonfly
    Stop your buzzing
    Fall silently
    To the floor

    Living is fun when you lay in the sun
    And make love to your dog all year round
    But when you are done (and given the shun)
    Society screams you're the hound
