"Sun shinning pretty bright this morn," she lets out a deep sigh."Perfect day for a swim in the river."
She lay back on the coach,close her eyes as she give her body away to the warm caresses of the crispy waters.
"Ohhhh!Sweet sweet melodies," referring to birds singing nearby bush.
"Mmmmhhhh!" She murmurs
She runs her thin fingers through the hair as her brown eyes absorbs the azure of the skies above!
"Breathtaking beautifully blue." Takes her back to a point in time not so long ago...
A Coldness on the cheek awakes her dreams.
"May as well be summer...

This morning I am quite possibly put out, positively outed and quizzically unethicacized.
Already judging myself on a slow to start, post early ought to be up, things to do Christmas morning.
Caked eyes and sallow tits and all my other jiggly bits
Popping pus filled pimples and psychoanalysing my thoughts on the way to the bathroom.
I haven't laughed...That's depressing... I'm being Sarcastic... and slow.
I just went to the toilet and surprisingly I'm still full of shit.
Eloquence increases as the minutes pass.
My ass is warm from curry and it makes me...

She waits patiently by the phone,        
In hopes it doesn't ring as it has a few times before.        
It's been six months to the day, that's one more, she's sure.        
She's lost a father, and a brother,        
Heard sorrows from her mother,        
half her family fell victim to a foreign war.        
         
She sits up at night, cries in fright, she'll see her son no more.        
Only letters home to comfort her        
as she reads of blood and gore.

Shadow of dualities left in perfect sense,
Do you honestly believe that I am separate from you?
may I reconcile pasts with an ancient glance  
How I loathe thee, you are cumbersome and utterly left wanting, a hidden child of ignorance and regret, again how I loathe thee
there were better days surely in the sun, I was younger then, different uniforms I worn,  
Come, come and walk with me in darken shadows,
This is where I live, mirrored reflections of a world gone very wrong for me,  
But which holds great glory for you;

I still remember that day the day you went away
I never spent much time with you,
but the time I did was just enough
before you got sick
I remember every sunday trying to get dad to go with you
I remember you still had meat on your bones
I remember my seventh christmas when you gave  me that pink toy pony
I didn't like it that much but I still played with it
I remember the words you said to me a while before you left
you said on your wedding day I want to buy you your 'white' wedding dress
it was only a week later when I understood what you meant...

The day will come when I finally say I've had enough. That day draws closer all the time. I already have myself a plan, it's just a matter of when. When I finally say I can't do this anymore, when I finally grab those pills. I long for that day when I finally throw all this crap away and end it all. I've come so close so many times but I'm not quite ready yet. But soon, so soon I will be.

I'm twenty-five years old. I've had nine poems published since I was twenty-one, all of them were written during times when I was swimming In the bottom of a bottle of bourbon or gin, or while I was slamming meth or heroin, heartbroken and destitute.
I still drink, but not like I used to and I don't do meth anymore.
I also don't write very much anymore, and when I do it feels like it's missing the spark I used to feel in my work.
About three months ago I destroyed my memoirs "The Motel Diaries" for reasons I don't completely understand. I had 5 full size...

Blue is success or loss. Blue is a longing that stretches the chest. Maybe the music is called that because of the low, slow moans. Nina Simone or Thelonious Monk's horn stretches out the searing agony of emotion until the essence of blue wraps over the listener. Blue is looking at the sky and knowing it's been there since forever, that past the longing for an ocean warm enough to surf in, of bright sparkling days is infinite. Blue is potential. Sooner or later we all end up in the sky or the ocean. Blue is the in between the highs and lows. The freedom to cruise at 110 mph with nothing but...

Motion is at the heart of everything. All matter is energy vibrating slowly enough to be tangible, and all life moves through changes. From liquid to solid motion dominates the field of permanence. When I wake up in the afternoon the sun is already up and so the first motion I feel is the muscles tugging up from my feet. Before my eyes open I am aware of my feet, the flow of blood. Then comes the twitch of the Achilles nerve, sending the impulse up my calf, which I mentally follow. My body is primed to engage with the world prior to my mind being able to process. Motion has superseded the...

"Modernist writers broke with Romantic pieties and clichés (such as the notion of the Sublime) and became self-consciously skeptical of language and its claims on coherence. "


Been having my about six monthly crisis and doubting about where I've went with my poetry so far and where to go next. It's a regular occurrence.
Right now my thinking is this:-
1. The idea of what poetry is or should do or could be from the period of the romantics e.g. Robert Burns, Wordsworth etc is irrelevant now. I still enjoy it but it's not how poetry should be...

Dear Journal..
I never Knew I could feel so empty, So worthless.
I feel so Useless.. When I look in the Mirror I don't See Me Anymore.
School's Rolled Around.. and I'm Failing. I hate Looking into My Parents Eyes and Seeing My Dad's Dissapionted Look.
I just Hate Myself in General.. I've Been Cutting Everyday. and All I wanna do is Kill Myself. I just wish I didn't Feel this Way

I don't Know what any of 'it' 'means' anymore.....seems like even the best intended 'meaning' is just a cover-up for some basic, pervasive, inexplicable, unknowable, crushing sadness ....but then, there's obviously something dreadfully...

There we were! A typical day in the grind. Just trying to subjugate what reality we were in, what our names were, what's our purpose in the world was....
We'd just gotten back(my partner and I) from hitting fresh nugs out of a not so fresh soda can. And there we were still, the masters of our universe, traveling by foot through the matrix of peoples faces at the mall, not knowing where we were going, but not giving a shit about when we got there.
          We were free, we were confused....
So as we strode past jc penny's I noticed something a bit strange out of...

There's a new generation of humans between us,we're watching them talking laughing at the world so ironically! So far from us they too are contemplating the old world breaking down! Look at their faces: a moody gloomy inside out eye is looking at you now!Or perhaps is yours, or perhaps you are! The whole humanity has failed down, fucked up!
Those Aliens are such like strange creatures, ornitologically interesting phaenomena. And they observe each others, plenty of distance.

the screaming
crying
blood flows
just a cut
behind a closed door
running scared
from the world around her
she doesn't understand
how it feels to be loved
problems in her family
bullies at school
teachers do nothing
parents keep fighting
no one to talk to
no one to run to
lost in this world
all alone
all by herself
behind a closed door

With speechless days getting more frequent, I do not think smooth sailing is an option "Has fallen to silence and mumbles" Is literal. Only question is if it is slowly being caused by Traumatic Brain injury, Diabetes Mellitus type II, stress, depression, or congenital cyst in the left temporal lobe.
That becoming suddenly poly again in 2012 (I want Raven and Gaia to know each other and be friends, I want to be a distant (1.5 hours one way without traffic) part of Raven and Samwise life) in the middle of a monogamous marriage put near terminal stresses on it... and I can feel my...
