a look at reality from insanity

glass half full

by rain

ghosts shimmer in the light;

a run-on ice cream cold scream;

you can't feel your heartbeat.

in the corner of your eye, reality glimmers.

there are strings from my veins to you,

and they pull taut, words hanging from them like paper lanterns

do you understand?

sink into this glass; get a healthy dose of dreams

something fades in and out, a wave; a hopeless attempt to put fear into words and dreams into sound.

they pick and pull at our skin and blood rains down

we sink.

a glass half empty (look at reality; so optimistic) engulfs you in a healthy dose of giving up.

" A glass half empty a glass half full" has been a conundrum defining pessimism vs optimism. What if we share the glass? I then tell you that my half is on the bottom and my glass is full. I hand you back an empty glass so that your pessimism is self-fulfilling. Excellent work!!!!!!
