Pornography (Blogophilia 8.5)





Sitting in the dark
Alone with his thoughts
And his computer.

Images flicker
Shock, Obsession,
 Forbidden Euphoria
Lived vicariously

No commitment
Burning bridges
To the outside world

The stellar night passes
Paying no heed
Looking for another hit.

  1. No commitment doesn't really equal no pain, although I'm sure some people believe it does.

    1. A different kind of pain, really. Kind of like the psychology course rats who keep pressing the button for pain/pleasure.

  3. makes you visualise Christopher..
    the guy alone in the dark..
    wanting to commit to a relationship without really wanting any commitment..
    using porn to have a relationship with the flickering scenes on the screen but dropping one scene to get another.. always looking for another hit to satisfy his desire!
    brilliant ....

    1. And never finding that one hit. A form of chasing the dragon.

    1. Yes, I have. Please be careful with the Illudium Pu38 modulator. You could destroy the world.
