welcome to the you show, depression, suicide, poetry, steve humphreys

Welcome to the ‘you’ show

Welcome to the

‘you’

show.

jump through the

hoop

bro.

watch yourself play

in that other

dimension you won’t

know until

much later

though.

you’re your own

henchman.

someone looking

at you

lying on a park

bench man.

it was

where you wanted

to be

passed out drunk

sailing the seven seas

in that nihilistic

dream you had.

been lost my whole life.

many a strife

walked out

wife.

that’s how much

is costs.

didn’t find out

’til now

that’s where

I was supposed to be

anyway.

lost is beautiful

to behold

once you realize

nothing matters

especially when

you think it’s true

that life is so

melancholy and cold.

that’s what really matters.

turned full circle

spinning my wheels.

going nowhere

but here.

you’re on your own

man.

up on my heels

turning purple

covered under a newspaper.

winter feels

sure would go for

some flapjacks

and maple surple.

couldn’t figure out

how to be somewhere

else

instead of where I was

at the very same time.

hits below the belt.

you have to split

yourself in half

somehow

and start walking

in the other

direction

and wave goodbye

to your old

self.

when you

think

wow…

all along

it’s like a suicide

note.

you are done

when

the ink

runs out

and dries.

then,

you think

and doubt

about what

you wrote

no jokin’

and you wake

up in that

coffee shop

and they are

all looking at

you

’cause you

had spilled

your

Caffé

latte

all over

your brand

new

laptop

that’s

spittin’

and

smokin’.
