Richard at 22

I am the great beauty mired in my own vomit and piss
I am the handsome blonde boy limp and alone with a blistering headache
I am the charming young lad with the oppressive hangover
I am the precocious fellow grasping and gasping for more
I  am the more I seek in the world
I am the pain
I am the hunger of compassion and love
I am the one desperate for understanding and respect
I am the desire of all my wants
I am the futility of my wandering dreams
I am the liar obsessed with my own half truths
I am the living walking talking fantasy of my being
I am lost in my yesterdays unconscious of tomorrows
I am
I am Richard and I always have been
