Track Name: mental gymnast
sometimes I feel like a mental gymnast
reaching for a gold medal,
with no way to win this.
sprinting across the hemispheres
towards afterthoughts and manufactured cheers.

your life as a picture show
the anatomy of a loner,
and it's never going to show.

sometimes I feel like a deaf, mute witness
with eyes to see what's happening
but no proper fitness.
enacting thoughts on chemistry
towards compromise
and chosen mystery

psychic vampire
words will expire
feelings then tire
is it worth while?
