I tip-toe down hallways,
Gingerly open doors.
Stare at four walls,
And let the silence take precedence.

I’m obsolete,
A dial-up machine.
With no firewall,
I feel incomplete.

Everything gets through to me,
I take on what you scrap;
But I can’t get through to you,
And there’s no other way around that.

The silence is deafening,
You’re oblivious to what I hear.
Slaved away for nothing;
I can’t connect to my peers.

I’m obsolete,
A dial-up machine.
With no firewall,
I feel incomplete.

Set your eyes on the boy who’s barely hanging on,
Zero zero one, zero one, one, zero.
I’m a parallel circuit to your light,
So you’ll know when I’m gone.

Logan Rowley, the King of Hearts,
Free-falling through the stars.
Hooked on Venus, tied to Mars.
Shut down in an attempt to recharge.

About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
