What is a sentence really?
You think a sentence can't be as long
as I demand it must be,
as it always has been
since humans began speaking
in a time before written
like punctuation and where to place
when you want to eat (with)
As I see it poetry dawned
with the first sun
and won't end until
there is no more need to speak freely,
or see the potential in your neighbors eye
for when he looks, he is looking with
do and no try
but the only reason you know why
is that you heard his screwed up speech
which was full of unbearable run-ons with more twists and turns than fatal attraction I mean my god would he not stop talking how you wished he would move on more quickly than he did but even through
all the smoke,
when he spoke.
Life as I know it
...At once, I'm awake.
The world is so bright and big
Mother holds my hand
I can't stop talking.
Speaking excellently, I
hold my head up high
Met a guy I liked
Fell in love a bunch of times
Got my degree! Whee!
Sad days didn't slip
by like ships in the calm night
They took all they could.
But happiness is.
And the rest goes down as it
always does: anew...
Pushing the limit
of what I can create
in a blank state
litter the streets that connect
your brain to your spine
Funny how all of the sudden
It's coming out in threes
it's usually longer when it doesn't have to be
A rhythm so innate
It had to be studied
Still losing sight of the great things in life
Roll up a leaf
Soak in the trees
Feel the natural beauty
A dedication wholly
an unnecessary tether
A free mind
thinks and bends
sways to those rhythms in your head
Likes to intertwine
with that golden soul
you're storing so far away
Where did you go
You left to find yourself
I'll be holding in a hug
New perspective shattering news
old retrospective songs never lose
fall back into what you know
a privileged dissonance
drowned out by the roots, rocks, and beats
You need to escape
Spend less time trapped upstairs
lift your mind and spirit free
Though life is too bitter to bear
Find something too good not to share
Walk through me
Let go of the physical
Watch the universe be
Not so deep down
I'm ever afraid to lose you
To watch you walk away
Still I won't pray
Still I won't stray
Still I feel gray
Condition of Humanity
One is a winner
One is an empowered human
standing big and tall and at peace
proud, self-fulfilled, one
Lone is romantic
A wolf or a ranger
intentional and as beautiful
as it is blue
Alone is without
Something is missing,
you are not whole
You are sad and, tired and, cold and
Lonely is where the three meet
In the waves of green waters deep
You are a romantic winner without
something you cannot place
The same feeling every
soul who tread these floods
felt before you dipped your toe
into the vast world of nothingness.
longing for that emptiness
because we are too full of something worth even less
a misery that penetrates the eyes
once they're open wide
A sorrow every man has borrowed
yet still we feel lonely in this feeling
for everyone else has just accepted this
a lonely so inherent
it will forever be inherited
Every generation knows
this dread is what loneliness is.
If you choose not to decide
You still have made a choice
And the rocks continue the landslide
even after there's no more noise
Standing alone atop a tower of indecision
Creates a shroud you can't stop spinnin'
Its cover recalls the youthful warmth
Better than standing where cold light is dimmin'
But if you choose not to decide
You still have made a choice
Near the end of the rope of time
Right or wrong, the world rejoice
For those things inevitable
Always come true
And what cannot be stopped
Will always happen
And in a way beyond my grasp
There's a bit of comfort in that
I fully agree that suspenders should make a comeback. However, I do understand why they left. Think practically. Suspenders are waaay less convenient than belts and in the modern world, you need every second you can get to MAKE MORE MONEY. The hassle of choosing a suspender that will match your tie, putting on said suspender, and reattaching them every time you use the bathroom takes at least 4.3 seconds from your money-making grind.
All that being said the answer to the lack of suspenders is belt loops. Remove them and force everyone to suspend their slacks
I Put a Spell on You
When you love someone, the things that hurt, hurt so bad. We all know what it's like to love someone who isn't good for you. But loving someone without boundaries allows them to hurt you without consequences. It has a lot to do with how much you love yourself, too. We're not really attracted to the toxicity, but the intoxicating feeling of loving and being loved.
Sinking Ship (I love the ocean btw)
Last night I literally dreamt I was on a sinking ship.
After nearly missing the bus to make it to a doctor's appointment (I was feeling sick, a sore throat or something), I found myself aboard a cruise ship-sized boat. Suddenly it starts storming, a torrential downpour. The cabins start flooding to the point where if people didn't get out immediately, they would drown. I witnessed two people trying to get out but drowning before they had the chance. My dad told me we were on a part of the ship that wouldn't flood and would be safe from the storm. Naturally, I was still terrified.
Next, we started watching a challenge-based show akin to Squid Game where if you don't successfully complete the challenges you would die. Except, it was a fast timer with a maze of rooms to go through and organize. It was simple organization, putting the same color balls in their proper bins and such but it seemed to have some inexplicable rules. Then we were in the show. Everyone acted like it was normal. Naturally, I was terrified. And there was no prize either. It was just stress or death.
I should mention I had another dream the other night where everyone I'd ever cared about even a little was on a slightly smaller boat. It was the worst storm I'd ever seen and the waves were so rough. I seemed to always be ten steps behind my boyfriend, who I was trying to make sure was okay. That dream was more pleasant though because we all took shelter and started playing games underneath the canopy.
Feel free to interpret :)
