THE WHAT'S PUPPET

Unresting resolve is constant reminder
of What and What you dared to claim
is forever erased,

blotted out of mind,
dusted off and ejected.
Far from reach,
out of sight,
but never out of mind.
And just like sin,
it crawls into mind
and feeds you Eve's Apple.
You see, you remember,
You blink, a tear drops,
You blink ,your mind races,
tracing back the images you
hid behind a misfit curtain
all along.
And like jazz,
You dance to the tune.
You smile back and you recount
the thing you wear around your heart.
In the middle of your puppet dance,
The puppeteer; the What, snickers.
"There, there goes my fool".
And you keep dancing.
Not like you have a choice.
The What snickers as you dance,
as it snickers as you dance.
It's the sweat that reminds you
the fool you have been,
drawing sweat for a What,
having no need of you.
So you blink back anger,
and rage,
and curse,
And promise never to be used again.
But the next time the What comes along,
You dance delightfully
to the jazz of their snicker.
You foolish puppet.

I'm a Buffer Girl pour l'Amour

I’ve always known true love exists; always and convincingly known. 

When my answers come

Life was designed to last once for every individual and as much as that sucks, it is true. We roam through life trying to figure out the true essence of existence and while that urge might be higher in some, it is lower for others. 
I mean, who cares about all of the serious stuff in life right? Roll up some weed, light it, smoke up some dose of daily conviction. Look forward to a what could be a better alternative for essence.
Truth be told, every single one of us humans on the surface of Earth, have that moment. A time when probably in a car driving to work, amid the endless news on the radio, it hits you- the realization of something beyond every individual you pass by on the streets, every nod you get in response to your greeting, every shade of pupils you've stared into.

And yeah, while some might boldly step out and share in an engaging tone, how, they realized, once, years back, the X, Y, Z, that led to making a significant decision in their lives, I sit there and wonder. I wo…
