history repeats itself

there was a time once
when i didn't feel the need to scream for help
every moment of my life here
a time when i didn't fear so much
the general ignorance
of the people
and their willingness
to buy the lie

but now i feel it acutely
as i know others have before
the genuine and complete surrender
to the utter destruction
that lies with open arms
just
around
the corner
now
the great destruction
that has laid waste to us
time and time and time again
bones upon bones
sealed in rock
sealed by time
proof

proof

it's almost comic
to see us all
running forward with gaping mouths
blathering about us and them
about right and wrong
when the answer is so simple

this way doesn't work
it's never worked
it never will

you always
end up
running
off
the
cliff

perhaps oblivion will be sweeter
the thing that is will never cease to be anyway
ours is but a blink
