• Error 404: Pathos Not Found •

Fame isn’t a prospect,

It’s a side effect if

Ever it were to come

About. This isn’t a dream

It’s a night terror in

The middle of the day

Because sleep isn’t an

Option when the voices

Are constantly live

Streaming in your head;

Just some kid trying to

Hash out a therapy

Session with his

Computer screen

Yet all you see is the

Glow on his tear-streaked

Cheeks so you illuminate

The fact that no matter

Whose watching

He’ll always be alone in

His head. He’s hurting and

Aching, struggling to ground

Himself on live wires;

Fighting for something he

Knows is there but

Can’t see, and clearly,

That makes him

The asshole.
