A stream of consciousness poem

The Demons push and Angels pull.

The Angels push and Demons pull,

Life is Chaos and Chaos Life.

Let’s dance.

Hold your partner. Is she Life or Death?

From boredom to excitement and back again.

…two, three, four…

How do I love me?

Let me count the squirrels.

Sure I’ll jump. How high? How far?

Where was I now…?

Did I take my meds? I don’t remember.

God, I’m happy!

No, I don’t care about your day.

There is so much to learn.

Normal. No I’m not. Are you?

Is there more coffee? I need to relax.

Swing that demon ‘round and ‘round,

Give the angel a kiss.

I want to cry in a happy way.

And rage like no one is watching.

It’s a madman’s world.

I cannot talk to you now. My mind is elsewhere.

Where did I put my phone? I haven’t checked it in days.

Damn! That bill was due last week.

No. Money is no worry. No money, no worry.

But, tell me your philosophy.

Ah, you’ll never understand.

Only the Angels and Demons.
