compulsion @ 02:43 am

Current Mood: compulsive

it's always surprising
when we have to look in the mirror
and admit
"It happended to me!"

last night
i lay naked in front of the fire
sweat glistening on my skin
though at 3000ft
cold night air
moon shinging bright
the fire i'd built had kept me not only warm
but HOT
i couldn't sleep
Leo snorning beside me
i prayed to clear all my warts
and the heat through the bottom of the ball of my right foot was too intense
the mirror made a creak above the mantle
and i rushed to the computer:

onto Amazon.com
.com!
.com!
i ordered 81$ worth of stuff!
so many cheap books
and must get enough new stuff to qualify for Super Saver Discount!
and don't forget "The Faggots and their Friends!"
so many things that slip through the mind
like whispy coulds
in the night sky
before the bleary eyes
of a boy trying to stay awake

this is the first time i've been ruled by compulision to run to the computer late at night
and
BUY BUY BUY!

i felt i needed something
something so important
and somewhere in the middle of the process i forgot what it was

but i got something anyway
i hope it fills it
while i lay and stare at the fire
... i wonder
