I have outgrown your artificial limitations by Martin Freebase

Your logical extensions
I see past your lies
You claim the ownership
Of all factual knowledge
And ignore the systematized analysis
Born on a bad day
Tucked beneath a scream
Your wire-framed perfectionism
Coffin nails and butcher knives
The edges of forgiveness
Is beyond your reach
On the edge of the coffee table
Next to razor and mirror
Your reflection is a smear
Mixed with your tears
You are a fucking flat line
No more beeps
To entertain us
You want me to love
To always be there for you
Even when you know
I am the chill in your bones
The crawling up your spine
A venomous bite to the back of your neck
I am the madness that grips you
When you are alone

Author bio:

Martin Leonard Freebase lives in Dubuque, Iowa with his wife, daughter, and a black and white cat named “Daisy.” Martin’s work is solidly based on the concept of poetry as a social construction. Through our interactions with others, we create and recreate meanings that allow us to make sense out of a chaotic world full of contradictions. Martin considers the art of writing poetry as one small way of collapsing the confusion of experience into more meaningful patterns of social thought.
