a cry towards the absurd

The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man's heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.Camus

'The Comfort Of Chaos' (still under construction, so positive criticism welcome.... personally im looking at getting rid of the slightly cheesy rhyming scheme and the boredom-induced Plath line)

Scratching onto metal like a helium bomb
The endless love for your face changes a tear to a gun
I blow the world into perspective
I find colour and shape
Finding sympathy for boredom
And a first world state

The truth is never enough, tragedy is more than my life
I find it sitting in a corner reading Plath with dry eyes
The world I see has all gone
The spinning circle of hate
Twist into something corporeal
With a metallic fate

The comfort of chaos , a planet of space
The thing we’re all searching for, I see it on your face
