Written by Amanda B Amandaa
i miss you so much my whole entire body hurts.
every delicate limb, flexible muscle. even these
shaky bones are rattling in my flesh, begging for you.
each atom that makes up each molecule that makes up
each cell. the ones that my physical existence is
composed of. they cry for you. silently, secretly.
hidden behind pale satin elasticity. they should have
no shame, my skin weeps too. droplets of salty moisture
rolling from head to toe. wanting to escape like caged
roses. yearning for a release from my strangulation.
these aches make me a...

Late one night,
Stars in the skies
I could feel the
Tears prick my eyes
I dialed your number
Because I couldn't remember
What your voice sounded like
For the last five Decembers
Your voicemail gave me hope
You sounded the same as before
But I knew in my heart
It wasn't you anymore
You've been gone for so long
I can't remember your face
At least you finally escaped
This terrible place
Sometimes I wonder
If you saw me today
Would you smile at me
Or would you turn away?
I'm so confused...

Father, I know I haven't been the easiest
Father, please hear me when I feel I'm the smallest
Father, I've been good and I've done what I should, but what could I do to make you proud of me?,
I sometimes wonder if you really love me,
You denied me at times,
You made me feel whatever I've done wasn't good enough.
Whenever I'd make a mistake you'd point it out,
Whenever you were stressed you'd take it out on me.
Tell me, what can I do to make my father proud?,
Tell me, how can I make these loud, angry voices stop in my head?,
Tell me, how can I make my...

You think I am just kidding. But I actually am not. My feelings for you are so strong that I can't go a minute without thinking of you. My feelings for you refuse to go away. I told you that I would do anything for you. I gave you my favorite stuffed animal. You gave me your favorite bracelet. I told you I would cuddle you on Tuesday when I saw you. You told me yay. I held your hand in the car when I was in the front and you were in the back. You held it back. I wrapped my arms around your waist. You smiled holding onto my hands. I asked you not to make me let go. You said never. But yet I...

I love her.
I just can't tell her.
I miss her.
I just can't tell her.
I want her to be here next to me.
I just can't have her here.
I need her.
I just can't have her.
I want to tell her that she is beautiful.
I just can't say that.


I just want her.
I just want to love her.
I just want to be next to her.

1. You play peace-keeper
between your new friend
and his friends.
He wants to stay and talk
his friends want him
to come inside and dance.
That and one them is so wasted
they’ve been cut off at the bar.
2. You say you’ll follow them in
after this cigarette
and even if you don’t really want to dance
you stay true to your promise.
The music sucks and you don’t
know the words to the song
but you fake it pretty well.  
The music has a way
of dragging you in and dancing
isn’t something you can hate ...

1. Conversations with drunk people
are finite, you’ve covered this topic
twice already, but they’re still banging it
from a different angle .
2. You say “see you later”
with a hug, because bowing out
gracefully has its advantages
in a place like this.
3. You see him standing by himself
he has that indefinable look about him
you don’t know what it is exactly
but you have the overwhelming need
to hit him up for a conversation.
4. You tell him so.
You’re too exhausted

1. People in cliques are hard to talk to.
Especially women.
You said, “hey, I like your & symbol tattoo”
she says “oh yeah, I forget it’s even there”
you spend a few minutes talking about your tattoos
before she turns back to her friends.
2. You hit up the quite wasted people
on the other side of you
they’re straight and friendly enough
look like old drug addicts
but you don’t mind
they’re interesting.
3. You tell them about this girl you saw
earlier in suspenders, thigh high stockings ...

1. It's midnight and your heading out
into The Valley.
You're barely out the door when
a random drunk guy hits you up.
He asks where you're going
you say "The Beat"
and he looks you over before asking
if you're gay.
You say you are and he's like damn
says "fuck the randoms " and walks off.
You're glad he's gone.
2. You crouch down on a street corner
and transfer everything from your backpack
into the shoulder bag you bought to carry
your band merch in.
It all just fits, including your backpack
all rolled up and...

1. You don't want the night to end.  
You want to freeze this moment
but it won't freeze.
The night keeps moving, you're getting tired
but you can't stop now.
2. Cigarettes have become something you do
when you're not sure what else to do.
You're between bands.
You strike up another conversation with
a hippy looking girl.
Turns out she's with one of the bands
that you just saw.
She introduces you to the lead of the
band and you find out

You told me you loved me and I believed you
everything about our situation felt true
we were so comfortable with each other
everything just fit... it felt right
remember that conversation we had about last night?
"baby I came in you last night.. what happens if you get pregnant?"
"If I get pregnant then WE'RE having a baby, what are you gonna do?
you laughed and said "run" then lean over and embraced me and said "naw baby I'll right here for you" and I believed you.
the time passed and we continued to make love freely
always ending with your essence...

This is a journal, a list poem, an excuse,
Silence in the Mind, swears, cruds of nonsense...

Leave the useless concessions, scratched-off rehearsals, clouds of rain following me everywhere, roads fifth-gear smooth, too fast over the tracks, still too heavy a load, poisons of the past still swallowing...

The search for gas stations, raindrop windshield races,scraggly swamp and tree, pulled-off sleep into the tiptoe leaf-fall deep, first snowfalls in the tundra, billboard prophecies and casino entertainments, the only form of education around...

Hello, DU.
I know, I've been gone for quite a while. And I miss everything.
The picture here best depicts how I've been the past two months. Bare, save for my underwear, a trusty fluffy pillow to keep me company. A phone with calls and messages that are never answered. A blanket to cover me when it turns chilly, which is a rare occurrence where I live. So yes, it does end up at the foot of my bed. Books, pens, papers, and clothes everywhere. And me. Hiding. Me and the music. Me and the fictional people. Me and the madness in my head. Disconnected.
On my 17th...

1. You almost never get fan girlie.
Being a performer you realise
that all performers are just people.
You get all fan girlie anyway and run off
after their set instead of going up to talk to them
like you want to.
2. Find your phone is dead again and that you have an hour
‘til the next band you’re dying to see is going to be on
Head back to the gaming café for forty minutes
To charge your phone and strike up a conversation
with a cute little nerd playing with...

1. Decide to hit the city for a concert where 10 awesome
independent Aussie bands will be playing
without making accommodation arrangements.
Everything is going to work out fine.
 
2. Get off at the train station after four hours
and find a backpackers with a spare bed
only to be told they can’t you book in
because you don’t have full sized luggage.
 
3. Realise you are screwed because everywhere else
is booked out due to the big sporting match
you didn’t know was on this weekend.
