Lame Dance Party (story version)

OUR SETTING: A party at a small suburban home. OUR PROTAGONIST: A very intoxicated twenty-something male. THE SITU: Our protagonist has done something really nasty and mean-spirited to someone he really cares about. THE CONCLUSION: He wakes up, at his home, on his couch, absolutely unclear how he arrived home...



I smoked that bowl and was left with whispers.
There was a distance and that needed warmth.
Recedes my mind, but it wasn't enough.
There was something in the dynamic structure.

I thought of an interplay consideration
of a fault in the system.
But I made an organic miscalculation
and was breathing out confinement.

And I realizedā€¦

A new lie
will guide me home,
but the truth
will see me burn.

So I try to suck in freedom,
but it won't go down.
Though my mind
keeps pulling me along.

But I think, "no instructions, nothing to fear,
don't starve, but be calm.
Little snippets to meet a claim,
I'd pay anything for focus!"

And I realizeā€¦

A new lie
will guide me home,
but the truth
will see me burn.

A new lie
will guide me home,
but the truth
will see me burn.
