The Effect

One look and I
shatter into
a million pieces.
No need to try
to pick myself up;
it would only be in vain.
Lips tremble as
words pour out
like a waterfall
with no direction.

One smile and I
melt into an
unrecognizable lump
of wax and
adoring eyeballs
staring up at you
as you gather me
and hold me close
against the heartbeat
that keeps mine beating.


My name is Procrastination.
My best friend is Never On Time.
My days are spent in sleeping
And my nights are all out of line.
My bed is much too comfortable.
My desk is not comfortable enough.
The stairs are much too long
And the ground is much too rough.
My life drags on too slowly
Sometimes I think I should change.
But then I think I'd have to get up
And that would be insane.
