What We’re Told

Posted in poem by johnsontoms on December 19, 2011

Right when it ends it starts again

But that’s what happens when humans live alone

-they do what they’re told.

It’s a shame too because what we hear is JUMP

And do stupid things like fall in love because it’s too easy to want it all.

I want someone to call

I want someone to rub up against like everyone else

But unlike everyone else

I won’t pay with my soul.

And goddamnit if I grow old like this then and maybe then I’ll know I’m wrong.
