Literature
promises promises
Forever
is a three letter word.
L-i-e.
Because
somebody wrote on the window
and smudged it,
libel;
let me tell you, "babe"
your hands are looking
mighty
dirty.
Would you believe me
if I said
"I don't need you"?
And to think
I almost changed my life
for you.
And to imagine
forever
with you.
And to remember
every night
we talked
sang
shared
and
I cried.
I don't see
you
anymore.
It's more like I see
lie
lie
lie
raising up hopes
I'd rather you'd just
left me
where you found me.
Would you believe me
if I said
"I understand"?
You know
you can't run from
you,
and I guess I can't
either.
You filled me
with all those
hopes,
promises,
l-word
adorations
with  my crossed fingers
for hope
and yours
for going back
on your fucking word.
I'll live in a cage
since
you live in a cave
and I know
this makes no sense
but darling,
~"it's not worth the trouble"~
to
decipher me,
anyway.

Literature
encountering a galaxy
She is chocolate--dark lips stained with lust and dried-up sweet nothings loaned to the nearest ear, soft white dresses swishing around smooth calves dainty yet exotic above strapped heels.
He is vanilla--the sweet extreme of a nation pumping out factory-direct commercial sludge. To look in his eyes is to see the calm dead of a moonless sea lost to any tourist because it has always been right in front of them and they have never really seen it.
I watch them. Me, a simple poet, delving in sticky food metaphors. Call me a romantic. Call me bored. Call me hungry?
They are dainty. Yet banal. Delicate spires of crystalline ice hang on her; his clumsy fingers snap them off in mountain-climbing excursions blind to all but a hallway poet locked out of the real world. These shards of brittle glass, gorgeous and mad with precise folly and stunted emotion, they stick in his big palms. Do they hurt? His sweet buttermilky complexion is dappled with a thousand stars she pretends not to count.

Literature
Untitled
I never set out to light the world on fire,
but I'll do anything to see you burn.
I could never write a lyric right
but I can shred you with each pen's turn.
I like to keep things dainty,
because honey, under the nails is no place for blood to be.
You can have the entire fucking world
but I lay claim to the sea.
Everything I ever wanted to say,
I'm changing my mind.
I'll keep my mouth shut
and let karma knock you blind.
Maybe it's not my time to show you
all that I can be,
but the fireworks are always brightest
when it's way too dark to fucking see.
Let's not call this revenge,
with connotations dripping like cocaine,
I'll just have my sentiment
that daylight's cruelty is too much for [someone like] me to maintain.
We'll just give it a push with my tongue, or perhaps my devout pen...
One day I'll show you all the strength you've forced on me
and who'll be fucking winning then?!
Everything I ever wanted to say,
I'm changing my mind.
I'll keep my mouth shut
and let karma knock you blind.

and i'm waiting for the moment
where i can breathe
without sighing

without every single cell in me

Literature
King James Confine
Sometimes,
when the heat of the night
got to be too much
and her legs
burned
and
twitched
with fervent desire to run
and escape
and breathe
and believe
again,
she would
kick off the blankets
the oppression
of
"do"
and
"don't"
and
"pretend that you really understand what you did wrong",
the strict life
lived within margins
of
King
James
fine
print.
She would slip
out of the window
--oh!
The symbolism!
The portal
the gateway
the doorway
the
present
beautiful
breathe
of
the hot
hot
night
.
.
.
No more
would she feel
the oppression
the weight
of
"do"
and
"don't"
and
"pretend you really understand what you did wrong"
for who she felt
this pulse
beating for.
To place Her
over
God
.
.
.
oh!
The guilt!
I believe in a thing called love
just listen
to the pulpit beat
from the pressure of a paper-sheathed sword
pressed tight to the throat of my love.
.
.
.
oh!
Die,
sweet misery,
to love is to lose
and to love is to fail
and to love is to know
that God
should
love
the open air
beyond
that symbolis

speechless
Growing up
tastes like
cigarette kisses
and
rusted brown scruff
bittersweet
like
coffee
and
kool-aid
with
way
too much
sugar.
At one point,
we were all
car trips
to rugged lumberyards
and
"Daddy's
Little
Girl"
...
now I dot
my
"i's"
eyes
despise
with
glitter rain
from
Sephora
and
nostalgia.
And you,
Daddy,
you mix
pleasure
with
Budweiser
and
mindless tv.
Where once
I saw stars
(and A's
on
refridgerator doors)
I now see
coming in past 6
and
glazed marble eyes
and I,
Daddy,
am speechless.
When I think
of amalgems
of
Mountain Dew
and
Beastie Boys
and
sarcastic quips
Mother
will never appreciate,
I now see
my muse
my childhood
my voice
slip sliding
into the ashtray
along with
any connection
you and I
once had.
Do you know,
Daddy,
how sometimes
a story
will break off
with
"Ohhh,
you're not listening."
and there
lies your cue
to encourage me
to keep sharing
with you
by proving to me
you've listened,
you care?
No, Daddy,
I forget.
You don't.
My voice
from my diaphragm
lifted in song

Literature
just maybe
I find comfort in the familiar
and this
is as comforting
as a reminder on the wrist.
Snug
tight
like a bug in a rug
and reassured.
We stopped looking for monsters
under our beds
when we learned
they were inside us
but maybe
just
perhaps
you'll hold my hand
and we'll go
traipsing
to find them?
We can
look them
square in the eye
dead last
falling behind
losing the path
and you'll show me
I'm not really as crazy
as
they
("they")
all
claim me to be.
I can keep a secret
and I can make it four days
and I can work the weekend
if you'll just
hold me close.
I'm wandering
and scared
like a baby
unprepared
but hey,
if I can rhyme
and I can stay alive
and I can hold my head up
and I can raise the cash
then maybe
just
perhaps
we'll elope to Vegas
and the boys will ride in back
to witness
the fitness
of two gals
who are cheesy
(like velveeta that won't melt)
and
kind of snap like puzzle pieces
and a world
an inside joke
a ha-ha imagination
a castle
of our own.

I specialize in procrastination, smudging things on paper, and tumblr.
Interests
Update: I've done it. I've finally made a deviantart.

No, but really, I've been meaning to do this for a while. Paging through my stuff to upload, it upsets me how absolutely obvious my need for a camera is. When the 50 dollar Walmart phone from '10 takes the best quality pictures you have, you know there's a problem.

At any rate, how does one make a journal post? Is it just a more formal type of tumblr post? Speaking of, go follow me on tumblr. Link's on my profile. \m/

Thank you for all the kind notes--and the one llama badge...?--I've gotten so far, I'm glad I'm getting a warm welcome c:

I probably won't use this journal feature much, unless it's actually about artsy stuff. All my personal ramblings are on tumblr. <3.

Onward to adventure! //toddles off to find good artists to watch/drool over.
