Choke

Self deceipt is discrete


Usually you see


Acquired in the mind


No transactional purchase


No issued receipts


No trace, no trail


Unrecognisable detail


No discernable footprints to find


It's the blind leading the blind


Ain't no trip of a lifetime, only..


Tripping over flora and fauna


No map given or taken


Lead away from the trauma


On this ramble


Around the edges of my roulette wheel


Threw my die


Watch them land


Pray they fall even as with my mind I gamble


What do I find?


An uneven pathway in my mind


As with myself I compete


So deeply within


Vanity draws me in


Standing at the door


Wearing shiny whistle n flute


Fake smile resolute


With sales pitch and grin


Black market interactions


Are this minds transactions


Straining to hear


Through the hollering and din


Of who shouts the loudest


Inside a minds deceptive den


Emotions compete


Bang their chest


King Kong gorilla King


Stands atop my minds'


Skyscraper skyline


Overshadows the less confident I


To keep me in line


Click track


In my ear


Welcoming fear


To distract


From the act of


Continually needing to


Add and subtract


What is real


How I feel


So detached from emotions


I assumed are as deep and as wide


As a tear filled ocean


Overflowed overwhelmed


By each and every motion


Taken away by the tide


Drifts away from me


My reality a distant memory


Stands on the shore with


Hand on the shoulder of my serenity


Seeking comfort from a faith


Deep within the depths of me


Deeply mined by my creator


Untapped seam of potential


Unseen by me for decades


Dust of sin in my eyes


Self deprecation torrential..


Rain falls


Washes away


Traces on my face


Drip off my chin


To me essential


Understand not all circumstantial


Enables the embrace


To be a human


In this race


Stand strong on two feet


Planted forest of oak


Defeat self deceipt


Before I lay down


Choke.
