River of Suffocation by David L O’Nan (from the Cartoon Diaries)

River of Suffocation

Ooh bending river come save me
I’m lifeless
Bending river is a cold beam, suffocating
Bending river throws me to the floor,
Peels my skin
Splits open my skull and picks out my brain
Cuffs me to the walls and calls me desire
Pretending I am pleasure
For evil
Winding, winding around my throat
Remember you’re safe,
what is your secret?
Why are you alive,
and why am I dead?
Floating,
water cripples like the flowing current
Across my dirty realm of life
They puncture the clouds
In which I see my death from above

They murder a sound before it becomes harmonious
They bleed unity,
and then flush it with raindrops

Flooding,
envelops my soul
Capturing good riddance
as power burns away into excellence
I’ve become a dark umbrage pasted to the ground
I’ve become floating evil kissing air through the halls
I’ve devoured the lust,
the heat with the banshee calls
Bending river you’re original
A choking brilliance
I caught dreaming as you tried to attack my
day to be saved,
to become clear
I swam in your arms,
hoping your hug was eternal
I’m leaping in
Your brooks seem refreshing,
but fire bounces in your eyeballs
The apparition,
I am lifeless looking up at the hope of the bridges
I’m a miniscule invisible dot,
no one knows of me
But you do…
don’t you bending river?
