Oh, if we'd only known back then, we would have bought a copy for each and every one of you.
Did you know that besides being an actor/warlock, Charlie Sheen is also a poet? Course you did! This is the man that inspired us with the phrase, "Can't is the cancer of happen," not too long ago.
But did you know that in 1990, he self-published his own book of poetry??? Oh yes, it happened!
Now, unfortunately, the book, called A Peace of My Mind, (Clever!) has since gone out-of-print, so Amazon won't be able to help you. However, we've got a little taste of Charlie's moving words for you here.
As it turns out, Charlie's book was illustrated by director Adam Rifkin. The pair ended up collaborating with Charlie's poetry again, when Adam used Charlie's sweet words for the trailer of his terrifying film Tale of Two Sisters. Never heard of it? Then consider yourself warned because this is some dark, creeper-infested John Waters territory you are about to head into.
You can listen to Charlie read his poetry
and subject yourself to night terrors by watching the trailer HERE, but for the rest of you, allow us to share you his words. With his awe-inspiring tiger blood quill pen, Charlie wrote:
Afternoon chaos turned to laughter,
As the lady in grey pierces the surface of the private aquarium,
Peach body held tight by the warmth of day,
Eyes fixed to locate, steady flow consumed,
A charred eruption takes suddenly the safety from her glow.
No place to hide, clear water raging black,
Looking hard for shallow hope, it’s gone, she consumed it.
Mascara bleeding, eyes of fire turned to stone,
Forced smile fading, laughing jackal breaks the leash.
Cue the chills!
P.S. - Does anyone else need anymore evidence that this dude is unstable???
