random poetry

Alone, I sit here.  Nothing but the sound of faraway music coming from
my iPod's speakers fills the silence, and that hardly works against it. 
 Thoughts gather in my mind, jumbling together, each fighting for my 
attention.  Which one first, which is most important?  I shall never 
know.  Disconcerted by the sun's unusual glare, I don't know where to 
look.  Anywhere except into it.  Anywhere except the base of my 
problems.  If only I could stay away....I find myself sneaking glances, 
being blinded again and again.  Yet never do I learn my lesson.  What a 
stupid little being, I am.  I find myself gulping blood, it dripping 
from my nose.  There isn't a clear reason why I am swallowing it, only 
that I do not like the taste or the feel of it in my throat, thick and 
clumpy, warm and red.  Or even how it can taste red.  It just does, it 
seems.  Along with many other things, that shall remain a mystery.  
Splotches of sunlight show through the trees, illuminating the ground 
like a spotlight on stage.  None of it is spotlighting me, yet I feel 
caught in the headlights all the same.  Neverending confusion, my 
punishment never stops.  I wish it would leave me alone, leave me to 
stare into the bloodred light in silence.  But it's always there, it 
seems.  Taunting me.  Laughing at me.  I shall never be able to rid of
