Poem: “The Truck”.

Every day I come up with new truths

which then turn out not to be true

I walk in endless delusions

Trying to hide my mind which is blue

 

I wake up so fucking cheery it’s sickening

My mind has these crazy thoughts and fantasies

I touch myself and make my body feel

And out come these sonofabitch clouds and nothing I sees

 

I take my ass out for a nurturing walk

Fresh air helps they say! Move and walk it off

But there comes a fucking truck

Let’s play chicken and have a standoff

 

The truck won and I’m still here

My fucking dumb ass moved just in time

So now I’ll hide in more thoughts and fantasies

Fuck, if they could just be real I’d be in my prime

 

And now it is Monday but it is not

It feels like it is ‘someday’ full of potential

I feel fear and dread and fucked and free

I am crawling forward on sheer will

 

But I know that there are other trucks

All I need to do is move slightly to the right

No more fear and dread and fucked but free

And the mess it would make would be quite a sight!

 

I am fully aware that this poem is shit

It has horrible rhymes and is full of fuck

But what can I say, I’m a simple girl

Writing a poem about playing chicken with a truck

    Quite dark, but beautiful. There is a certain truth in this, at least for me. Fuck!

        Lol. It does. I think your poem illustrates that point as well

    It’s vain talk…it has a good feel to it. Maybe even some attitude I envy. That part about truths turning out to be not so true is dark and lovely; it just shows you book keep your thoughts a little more than most people and find reason persuasive. Being always right is what’s suspect.

      Very true! I tend to question myself often lately…. Sometimes I even find truths that weren’t true but turned out to be true all along! But I am still positive though. I did after all avoid getting hit by the truck.

        As you should, Truth Seeker. And be on the watch with the trucks next time.

          Ya…. those trucks….. I have avoided them so far so I think I’ll be fine.

  3. I love this one. I think one of the best poems on ur page, at least for me. Truths & feelings have to be said/described exactly so – simple/elementary/plain.
    I find this poem sad tho…

      It comes from a sad place this one…. but there is hope in there as well! I avoided the truck!

      1. Yes. There’s always hope. I read tho that hope hurts more than love (in the book)…it’s very interesting thought.

      Ya my moments of wanting to jump in front of a truck do pass rather quickly 🙂 I don’t think I would ever actually do that. Couldn’t do that to the truck driver!

      I was thinking about continuing the stories today. I just haven’t felt much for writing lately…. And I dont do food-planning, silly 😀 I eat breakfast, anywhere from 100 calories to 250 calories…. I dont do lunch and then I have dinner! It seems to be enough, I’m still upright 🙂 Oh and a loooooot of coffee!

      1. Hm it’s very little food..you r probably very strong woman to feel “upright & alert” with so little calories intake. I wouldnt move my legs lol

          I wouldn’t say I am alert lol. I’m just upright 🙂 My mind is still going but in all directions. I see this kind of as fasting while I try to figure stuff out.
