July 20, 2014 - ANXIETY

PARADING THOUGH THE NEIGHBORHOODS OF MIND:
The Panic. The worry. Iím sweating. Iím dizzy.
Pounding heart. Upset stomach. Shortness of breath.
Iím overwhelmed.

The floor feels like itís moving.
Thereís no reason for this tingling.
Hands, feet, legs, arms, head, mouth, chest and groin.
Am I going crazy? I need to find the nearest exist.
ďStuckĒ, trapped in my mind. On the edge of a nervous breakdown.

The man sitting on a milk crate in front of the korean store  
has dreadlocks ran through the holes stretched in his ears.
As well as the audacity to ask to bum a smoke with one in his hand.
 
But honest enough to tell me after being called on already havin a square and bein a greedy beggar, †  
it's really a crack pipe made from one of those e cigs he stole, tryin to quit.
 
i apologize and give him the rest of my pack................

Very few things have held a significance throughout human history like that of music. Music is interwoven with virtually every aspect of human existence. It extends itís reach through both the profound and the profane. Music pervades every culture and era of mankind. Though there are innumerable classifications and genres in the wide world of musical sound, two tend to stand out in great contrast: popular music and art music. Although popular music tends to dominate the more common conception of songs and songwriting, it is art music that should be enjoyed, explored and embraced for the...

Why should I fear oblivion when the people that I thought loved me have already abandoned and ridded my presence from their minds. This world is full of anguish, death and hate, what would it take for people to show some compassion, why canít people just learn to love.
Today I saw a man have a gun thrust upon his head , whilst the antichrist wailed out words of torturous hate , the man shaken with fear as his eyes were to witness his last sight , his mind to †witness its last thought and second , before bang ! Off goes the gun, another innocent life ended.
I know that the problems I...

No idea where this actually belongs.
I know my mother better than most, but I barely see her
We live in the same town, but if we pass each other in the street we look the other way
Ignoring one another, a relationship which seems weaker with every silent encounter
But it never really existed, so why would we, how could we, speak
I still try with her on occasion, but I hate too much and so does she
So when I go round her house to try and rebuild, we just tear it down some more
I don't care for her, but that is the problem I have
Dragged up is too easy, I...

The ad reads:
Are you an artist or do you appreciate the finer things life and all its beauty
Are you 45 or older, are you patient and very kinky
Are you dominate and submissive both
Do you own or run a business if you do then maybe I will interest you
I am an artist and very, very passionate
Unpredictable sexually
I am a leader in management
I am a child and a full grown woman
I am looking for the one
Who can grab me by the throat and kiss me so deep I feel the fire in my toes
I am looking for the one who understand an artistís mind
And can...

Now I am about to finish the final draft of a book of poetry. He always replies to my maunderings. He insists our work should relate to each other. He always greets me in the morning and helps me sleep at night. I wanted to destroy all my work. I get ignored sometimes. I felt too exhuasted.
We have an unusual relationship. Soon I couldn't write. I couldn't understand why I had to bear the last of the intensity of his struggles. My life has been like this since 2005. I became angry and destructive. This was how I lost all my work. Disparaging and hurt. I became what he was. He's...

Truth about music. Truth about souls
Irrashashonal emotions
Cast through the coals
Of the fire through life
Without desire of strife
Being known
A world full of stupid people with smart phones
Its deppressing at times
So I am messing with rhymes
Because progressing is fine
But when suggesting a crime
(should be criminal)
My hearts a cannonball
Aimed at my own life, my swords an animal
(my words)
Through with the herds
Nothing new for you turds
And feeling blue tht occurs

Maybe the reason you don't feel like you belong here is that you are not from here.Maybe †the curls in your hair were borrowed from the ocean,and the glow in your skin was left there when dawn danced into being.Maybe the whites of your eyes are night kisses from stars and the paleness of your soul came from a perfect full moon.Maybe the reason you feel you don't belong here is that you belong with the stars and the moon in the rainbow heavens.

Mother nature flexed her muscle
In the form of a lightning storm
Her amazing power over this tiny
Planet truly amazing
Lightning strikes up and down
The power lines flashing and
Making hair stand on end
The power can be seen threw
Your eye lids and herd on your
Chest this angry woman
Never seeses to amaze me
The chaos that insues will
Shurely finish off the rest
Forest fires and floods
Carnage makes man kind seem
Small and week mother nature
Lovely lady u have my love
And respect i cant wait for

sound is the color of word, ocean air, broach, embark, tawny bleach fade, dirt clouds scud deep within the rotating rock, her name is Brisance Of Detonated Horizons, her name is Frail Stone Mountain, a rod runs from the tail bone of a promising nascent rose to the last rise of hill, a thick iron sword cutting stride, lain in the field, the gait of many rodents, each one exactly the same, they make up the same enormous horse, identical identity gathered, a fleshy field of animate rising from the inanimate, one leathery century nobody can ride, the recalcitrant beast, the...

Have you ever met one of those people, those intoxicating people?
The ones who could be gone from your life for weeks, months, even years at a time, but the moment you see them again they're all you can think about? The ones who people trip over themselves to please, without ever really stopping to think why, what draws them to the person?
Our minds come up with excuses for why we act this way toward these people. We tell ourselves it's their charm, their sex appeal. If we can detach ourselves enough to think of it objectively though, they're usually not what most people would say...

Is it Possible To Feel Hatred To Yourself..To Feel So Much Hate For Yourself.
It's Like I Have i Can't Breath..I Feel So Empty.
I'm Tired Of Being Alive..And Feeling So Much Pain.
Everyone Always Says, "Just One More Day","Smile Your Pain Away"
It's not That Easy,To Forget,I Want To Be Whole Again..I Feel So Useless And Broken..I'm Tired Of Fighting..No One Really Notices But,I'm Slowly Giving Up The Fight..No One Notices How Unhappy I Really Am..And How Much I Hate Myself..I Live In My Own Personal Hell..And I Can't Find My Way Out.

Last month, my husband and I booked two nights at a beach resort on Mactan Island. We thought it was a wonderful idea before the end of summer. To have a quiet relaxing time together. When we got there, lots of people were swimming and karaoke-singing. Employees of the San Miguel Yamamura Packaging Corporation were having a team building party. I thought it would be horrible, but it turned out to be funny. The singing was quite bad. I thought that was funny. It was low-tide so we couldn't swim on the beach. We went swimming in the pool instead after people got out to play volleyball. It was...

I talk about my last/previous suicide attempt very nonchalantly with myself
and if anyone else is to hear the tale, it shall be the same
because there really isn't very much to it
I wont say about how 'hellish' it was
or how dark everything felt, or how cold I became
nor will I say it was cool, it wasn't, it never is
I wont say it was 'hardcore' or 'brutal'
nor that it was 'savage' or 'terrifying'
nor that their was any enlightenment or desperate revelations
because their wasn't any of that, it just happened
I did it, I did many things both before and...

Looking towards the night sky,
Through the blue smoke which drifts past my eyes as I exhale.
I'm going to scatter these ashes into the sea,
With nobody to bear witness, the waves won't be grieving.
And I'm going to lay upon these rocks, against the shore.
If I'm swept away does it really matter?
Yeah, I want to put a ripple in this tide
If I rest my back against the water's surface,
How low will I have to sink before I stop staring at the stars?
I'm falling again, but as usual I never managed to climb high enough
So when I hit the ground, though I feel...

Now I am about to finish the final draft of a book of poetry. I am beginning to miss my husband. She said she kept hearing voices. He always replies to my maunderings. He always greets me in the morning and helps me sleep at night. My tumors are all behaving themselves too. I like the seclusion.
We have an unusual relationship. I became angry and destructive. Disparaging and hurt. I became what he was. Tedious. Exhausted. Isn't a belief in rationality completely irrational? Perhaps because I became an ugly mirror of himself. Now he is more affectionate. More loving. More...

Don't talk to me about fucking love,
Do you even know what it is?
Don't you know what it's like to lay in bed at night,
Rocking your thoughts
Back and fourth
Replaying those beautiful moments over and over
And you do the same with the tragic ones
But they stick for longer
Don't even try to say you loved me
You felt me
There was always a difference
You craved me, yes you wanted me, but didn't love me
You left when I got pregnant
You fucking left me
I was †sat crying on the bathroom floor
Slicing open my thighs with a razor
And...
