A Neuroprober’s Advice

allanegory:

Nothing to fear but fear itself.
Never before these words have been so true,
But fear’s most fearsome where into you delve
If you’re afraid it will soon feed on you.

And manifesting as a haunting ghost,
As car, as gun, as undead or wild beast,
It will converge to what you fear the most
And keep you paralyzed as living feast.

So if you gaze the abyss of your soul
Or of another’s, do no try to run.
Trying to forget means giving up control,
Memories will find you and can’t be undone.

Instead all pain and terror do embrace,
With calm mind brave the horror you will face.

Nevermind

allanegory:

Once upon a midnight boring, while outside thunder was roaring
My backlog I was exploring, hoping a good game to find.
But no game seemed quite appealing, and over old games then kneeling
Suddenly I got the feeling new experience was declined.
And with that unpleasant feeling of experience declined,
I stopped searching. Nevermind.

And with boredom still unceasing, I looked to the web for easing
Of this torture non-decreasing, of this splinter in my mind.
And upon my dashboard greeting, ‘mongst so many posts competing,
One told that by one’s heart’s beating score of fear may be defined,
Yes, by frequency of beating score of fear may be defined,
As has been in Nevermind.

Straight I googled this ungainly title, this one word so plainly
Since this title little meaning, little relevance assigned.
For we cannot help agreeing, that no game yet has been seeing
Vitals of a human being, and to scare them was designed.
To read fear and use against the human being was designed,
Viciously and most unkind.

This concept had all the seeming of a gamer’s hated dreaming
A true nightmare - difficulty with uneasiness aligned.
Hence then on reddit I inquired of Erin why this is desired
Her answer was: “If in a game anxiety must be confined,
You may then learn in real life anxiety may be confined.”
"This," she said, "is Nevermind.”

Thus intriguingly replying, she refuted all denying
And I gave then up defying concept so one of a kind.
And indeed it seemed appealing having horror’s hauned healing
In a game, that entertainment with development combined,
Cause to fear and chance to grow beyond this horror thus combined.
Hence I tried out Nevermind.

Into twisted dreams descending hoping horrors hold a mending
I exposed myself to nightmares trying ailments there to find.
But the horror had no ending and so deep I was descending
That the way back slowly faded and the nightmares me confined.
And my soul within these nightmares in which I have been confined
Shall be haunted. Nevermind.

Nevermind

allanegory:

Just a normal house, there’s nothing to fear.
Are those pics watching me? They look frightening.
Just get that one thing then be out of here.
Shit, the light’s gone. Outside there is lightning.

I feel my heart beat,  I hear a faint sound
A girl? Silently whining and mourning?
Is the garden some kind of burial ground?
Just shut it out, don’t see it as warning

I reach the kitchen, now here it must be…
But the door locks itself and milk fills the room.
My heart’s racing, the house is drowning me.
Screams growing louder are heralding my doom.

This nightmare is truly one of a kind;
I dare you enter the world of Nevermind!

PSA: Yes, I will dedicate this month to Nevermind.

Thank you for the compliment, I really enjoy your poetry as well.

Nevermind again

allanegory:

You thought you had your fears and dreams defeated
That you were finally from these visions save
But all this terror is too deeply seated
And now again it’s rising from its grave.
Your nightmares all reborn, invigorated,
Regroup, assaulting in another wave.
In thousand faces now fresh incarnated
A faceless fleshless fear did manifest,
Menacing masses that self fornicated
And multiplied while you enjoyed some rest.
Now you are cornered by your mind’s creation,
Your resolution’s put to grievous test,
You bought some time before by mass sedation
But know that all this burden still you bore
Postponement never can be your salvation
And ultimately it is met with gore,
A trauma finds its way back to the surface,
No spot can ever be as memory sore
And in the end horror will leave its trace
Through your subconsciousness tear you apart
Until insanity or worse you face.
And when the fear does strike your very heart
There is one choice, one choice that’s left to make
So chose your role, chose what will be your part
It’s fight or flight with everything at stake
And you will lose without calm head and mind.
So better keep controlled for your own sake
To face this challenge of the hardest kind,
To face your demons - death may yet be cheated -
So fight, or give up. Choose. Oh, Nevermind
