"Just call out my name..."

I keep saying I'm ending this semi-hiatus I've been taking. I like to think it's going to happen (soon). I've been busy. Life has been crazy; I can't even begin to tell you how crazy. Holiday hell in retail is in full swing too...but I've also been dealing with a little bit of depression. And I tend to drop off the face of the earth when that happens. I tend to have this love/hate relationship with the holidays. I love them, and they bother me. Lots of reasons. Life is complicated like that I guess.

I've been doing some writing and zero posting. My inbox is a disaster, and I feel guilty even looking at it and not responding to anyone. Do you ever just look at things and feel like they're too hard and not really worth the time they would take to do? Yeah. That's a thing. And it makes me feel kind of pathetic. I don't have proper time...or energy...or....whatever. Idk. Mojo or something.

I got my 2nd DD! I'm still in a bit of disbelief about the first one, so maybe you can imagine the surprise I'm experiencing over this one. hopeburnsblue suggested it. I'm just beyond honored. I should have put that at the top of this post. My mind isn't where it's supposed to be lately. I'm sorry. And you all have left wonderful comments and featured me and shown me so much support, and I've continued to hide in my corner of the world and see how little I can do each day. I'm sorry for that. I've never considered myself to be that good of a writer, and so to be given a DD...it means a lot to me. I really do appreciate it. And I promise I'm going to pull myself out of this funk-or-whatever-it-is and thank each of your properly. :heart: But until then: thank you. Everyone. You guys are the sweetest and the best.

I hope to be back soon. I keep saying that. But I really do mean it.

i.
I am
the cancer
in your lungs.

ii.
Nine years ago,
we tumbled
on plastic and grass blades
and were happy.

iii.
You are
the sickening pulsebeat
behind my eyes.

iv.
Two and a half years ago,
we plastered blue over mold
and were happy.

v.
We tangle
fingers to knees
in a constant freefall.

vi.
Three days ago,
we wrangled
heat to gravity to embrace
and were happy.
How Time Flies

Loading...
You twirl threats
past my ears
and regrets
down my shoulder blades.

I am caught
between the tides
I cannot control
and the razors
I do not swallow.

You work as hard as you can
to inadequate me beneath your soles,
and I work as hard as I can
to go along with it.
Adrenaline scrawls the blood
through your veins, stretches graffiti
over parchment bones.

Anticipation clutters your heart
in oil, and anxiety scratches
from yellow to orange
across stumbled ankles.

Ardor gauzes your eyes
from the sun, and agony
contracts your fists to fingernails,

but avarice
seals your lips
to symphony.
Lust
I think I'll be back like I was in about a week or a week and a half, people! I've missed you! You have no idea. :heart:

I wrote this about a month ago. I've been debating on posting it. So here, have a very-debated-over poem. What do you think of it? I know I've been sincerely awful at responding to all of your wonderful feedback; I promise I'm on it soon!

I've had the worst writer's block lately. I'm so sorry. I still want to do it, yes! If my inspiration ever comes back to me. ^^;

I hope you've been well.  We've both been kind of back and forth here lately. It happens, life gets busy.

I'm sorry for the late reply - thank you for having me! I've been taking a bit of a hiatus the past few weeks, but I'm excited to get back into the swing of thing (hopefully soon, although I keep saying that...) and contribute. :)
