We work together
Not like peas in a pod
But like sunbeams on water
And everything sinks to the bottom

of misfortune thorn my nerves, notching bone
with careful tally marks. We are here, we
live and die with
throne, drumming His
fingers. I see the snow begin to fall.
At duskDiamonds drip through clotted dusk,At dusk by haphazardmelody
the violet-velvet sky
preening itself to charcoal.
Paint our Paletteyou are a susurration of motley bruises painted in soft, pastel hues. you are beautiful, in this moment and the next, and I know that I will lose you. but not today.Paint our Palette by haphazardmelody
the first time we sleep together is a disaster. I spend crucial moments wringing your excess from beneath your skin, watching your nerves shiver from their bones. you leave, and neither of us finish what we started.
we catapult through our next meetings with uncoordinated dis-ease. I am canvassing the static heartbeat behind your eyes each time we collide, and you are always ready to lose yourself to the surreptitious glow behind mine. if this is forbidden, then draw the blinds and vacillate inside that crooked smile.
you are too obscure for me to let you go. I decide this with a drink or three under my tongue and a hand that isn't yours on my waist. I stumble through the night: wake up in a strange bed and retch in a sterile bathroom that tells me to pack away my bile and clear out, I do not belong here. I listen.
I would have stayed up with you all night...Do you ever have those times when, for whatever reason, you can't fight the melancholy off anymore? Some little thing happens, and it's kind of a downhill trip from there. The strangest part is, I don't really have a single reason to be sad right now, not really. I'm just about on spring break (one paper to go), and I've got lots of fun stuff planned with friends for the upcoming week.I would have stayed up with you all night... by Tyrison
Sometimes I'm afraid of the sadness inside of me, 'cause I don't know where it's coming from or where it's flowing to. And it's really a lousy way to live life.
The worst part, though, is that no one around me quite gets it. I am forever in this mood, but they're so much shallower [and happier].
Meh. Here are a few of the songs that are haunting me currently (and I apologize for the length of this journal...it kind of got out of hand. ):

no shitty ocean metaphors,
no poems about lovers and bones.
no girl with high school insecurities,
no misinterpreted radiohead lyrics
on the sidebar of a fifteen-year-old's blog.
a tea drinker, a book reader, a dreamer.
no dew drops of a saddened world
splashing on tin roofs or windowpanes.
no drawn out similes for depression or loss.
an ableist slur for the diagnosis of a mental illness,
starting with c and ending with y.
a lesbian. people are not their haircuts
or who they fall in love with.
no razored wrists and thighs.
no sick doggish romance.
no supermodel teen queen.
no irresistible object of sex and desire.
no poetess, no goddess,
but no less
than strengths and fallacies.
A Lesson in ForgivenessGod joined the KKKA Lesson in Forgiveness by SilverInkblot
for about three hours,
long enough for a member
to spot the black flesh
under His sleeve and rip
off the hood to find a face
as white as a vampire.
While the Grand Master stammered
apologies, He smiled genially
and patted his shoulder,
because God forgives everyone.
