Broken #2

written by: Dah



That which is broken works
for those who want it broken

Can I exist like this
can anybody live this way

knowing that within our minds
a sub-mind of deep surveillance
creates eyes inside one’s privacy?

And where does it stop, what else will we lose?
What more does Tight-Mind want?

I’m already tired of the future
because so many people will be missing

Compassion and empathy
are strangers in dreams. Treeless nature
is clogged with wireless eyes and ears

Maybe there is another world where
dreams are dreams are never nightmares
somewhere above the universe
