Written by Alisaire bootselectric
Most people want an artist who produces no art, but only is art.
A true artist only challenges, thus scaring off those afraid of true introspection and conflict.


Those who desire an artist usually only desire themselves

Miss new when I'm gone
I close my eyes
To say goodbye
Goodbye forever
You err my everything
The only sad thing
I never meant
Anything to you
So I lay with my
Blood running from my
Body
And I  softly whisper
My last words
"I will always love you"

When will it be the right time.
To release it all?
The anger you hold so dear
The temper you cradle
And just when will it be the right time
To let go of all the sadness
The things that make you tear up with disappointment
Times you regret
And growwww
Stronger, wiser, courageous
And when will that time be
You stand alone
On your own
Hold yourself
Not asking to be held?

Lie me down in your flower bed of lies
Your eyes fixated on mine
For a few seconds I could have sworn my heart came to a halt
Let's lie here for an eternity
Pretend, Let's
Speaking words lovers speak
Exhausting romance through our limbs
Singing a song from where passion reeks

I have a lot of regrets being on this site I love so much. I've been here about 2 years now and have managed to waft in and out of the site and poets' lives all too often.  I've made many brief connections that I can no longer reclaim; and to that I can say I am truly sorry.
For the few that don't know; I have been moving constantly. Since October 2012 I have moved 5 times not really knowing where and not coping with it well.  I have one more move to go (hopefully) and I will be home again. Home to a routine that will give me ample time to sit, conversate, critique, and properly...

I took a walk with my childhood hell today.
Walked across the floor where i had knelt to clean up my my own congealing pools of blood.
Wandered through the empty shop where i had tried to end for good the pain i endured.
Sat in the room where i had cried myself to sleep more nights than i could count.
Stared at the corner i would hold up in to pick broken glass from my scalp and clean my wounds.
Heard the voice that had raised countless times to shout the nastiest words it could find at me.
I relived every blow, every tear, every cry for help that would never come....

I have to write to my 9 year old self, the year that made me sane and I hate it to this day. I went from a loved evil person, to a creepy alone person.
Dear DC,
Don't hurt yourself trying
Alone is where you're at
Let them call you Devil's Child
Your friends have your back
In a few years,
Your confidence is gone
All that you've lost can never be won
Your gang man style turns into a pitiful poet
A voic that'll be left unspoken
And you're not even good at it
That free as the birds
Your going to hate yourself ...

wonder if trying to sleep and trying to stay awake are not opposite ends of the same dimension where everything you are is a grand joke where i have already booked my retirement home this pen is flaking on me so i turned round sqway legged to find another more xsuited to this mundane drivel and the nib creaks like an eyeball in the deadofnight when the wind taps a frightening symphony on the walls of your suspended room all i am doing is resting- i hate it- aching my cheek on the back of my hand and manoeuvring the pen delicately as a feather or needle but with less grace it must be said and...

DU Poetry : Non-Fiction Prose: Diary Entries, Letters and Articles

Published on 5th April 2014 5:48am

Blaze was born under the computer table in the back room.  He was the largest of the litter at birth, a lovely red spotted tabby with white trim.  At his biggest, Blaze weighed in at 28lbs, approximately 2-1/2' long from tip of nose to tip of tail...a truly big cat.
For all of Blaze's life I couldn't have a plastic cover on my sewing machine. You see, Blaze had a passion for plastic: ziplock bags, shopping bags, 6 pack holders...he dug my little photo album out of my purse one night and chewed it all up. He would find plastic anywhere, I had to be very careful and diligent at keeping...

This essay is really important to me so it my be revised many times.

I won't go into the background or context of Occupy here. This is not an academic essay. This is a personal account. This account comes mainly from my memory. Since it was back in the heady days of  2011 , my memories have faded slightly so I'm grateful to have occupy videos on YouTube to rejig my memory and compliment it.
I can't say exactly how I first heard about the occupy movement. I think I must've come across Occupy LSX(London Stock Exchange) on TV. I wanted...

My dreams are getting weirder
Last night's was no exception
I've been getting pretty good at interpreting them
When I remember them
Last night's, however, was hard to figure out
I was living in some sort of experimental living facility
A government social experiment of sorts
I was living with my family and best friend
Other participants of the experiment inhabited the complex as well
The building consisted of many floors connected by spiral stair cases
It was a really clean and streamline facility
Futuristic
Something happened
I...

Why is every body mad Fo?
I'm sorry,
But I don't understand no mo,
Mama leave daddy alone,
Daddy leave mama alone,
Why we just can't get along?
Daddy it is your home,
Come on you'll are in love,
We are a Family,
Let you and mama go to room,
It will be ok soon,
I'm sorry,
I will be good,
I know it's about me,
Daddy please don't leave,
I promise I will never make you mad again,
I'm sorry,
Let's be family,
Not friend's,
We are family,
Don't let the love end.

We layed beside each other. I suddenly thought while gazing into his eyes, how he looked at me. How much I loved how he looked at me.
"Baby?" he murmured.
"Yes boo" I answered.
"What are you thinking about?" he asked.
"Its...Its stupid..." I chuckled.
"Come on...Tell me" he said curiously.
I took a moment of silence, figuring how to word it out.
"They say that you know a person is in love with you, by the way they look at you" I said and took another moment of silence.
"And I love the way you look at me" I said while...

Every day I wake up
I put on my mask
I open my bedroom door
And step out
This mask has a neutral gaze
This mask conceals everything
This mask cracks a bit more each day
I don't know how much longer I can do this
This is a cry for help
This is me screaming silently
I've been having thoughts of suicide again
I haven't told anyone because I hate making my family upset
If I knew that no one would care, I wouldn't be here anymore
I don't know what love is
What it feels like
But I assume suffering through each day just...

You can't destroy me.
I destroy myself. I cut my skin. I poke sharp things into my mind and twist them round and round pushing lightly until I can go no deeper and i have gaping holes in it. I tear little pieces of my soul off one at a time. Then i take all these remnants pour all the blood into a blender. I add tequila and tears to bind it all. Laughter and all my favorite fruits for sweetness. I throw in wildflowers and top it off with ice. It makes a margarita of my own essence. When its mixed to my satisfaction i'll sit back inhaling mentholated smoke and sipping daintily from this...

Sleep
If it could be bought I'd put a store out of stock
Haven't been able to get enough lately
Last few nights I've had to pop some pain pills to knock me out
Days blur together when you have insomnia
You forget what's real and what was just a thought
A dream
Been having trouble remembering my dreams lately
The ones I do remember aren't good ones
I'm tired but I can't sleep
I can't sleep and so I'm tired
I haven't been eating much lately
Maybe a meal a day
But that's it
I've lost more weight
My belt doesn't fit
Hasn't for a...
