Literature
mother judgment
let every stone you throw
be cast in secret
may every path you walk
be left behind
may every knot you tie
be unforgettable
may every sunrise make
you truly blind
may every die you cast
be plain to see
may every door you open
be thrown wide
may the throne you sit upon
be first approached
may the supplicant be
all that you divide

Literature
may be not
lift me from the smoking stones i play in
beneath my skin
i'm just as weird as you are young
meet me at the table where i rest
there with empty hands
i feed upon the same lamb you fall
prey to
believe me when i tell you i am
breathing in your sighs
i flutter all around the lips you
lie on
write me gently in your hand and leave
my sound unspoken
come to me as brave as i am bent

Literature
nail
give me what worlds
fall through space for
form my mind from
all possible ends
crawl out of my throat
and scream whispers
let the unborn rise
whole through the ash
let the old fall down
choking on laughter
show me true pain
unpaid for by bombs
be unmade to the dust
you've made gods of
shed a sigh for me
free from my sins
:iconSS116:SS116
:iconss116:SS116 5 2
Literature
promise
you wear your flesh like a crown
but i tell you your horns will grow drear
your hands will fall all the way down
your lips will find no one to hear
rings will grow round all your fingers
roots will grow up 'tween your toes
your voice like the light ever lingers
your thoughts are all anyone knows
you look to the ground to uphold you
but i tell you look to the sea
where the lies you tell still fall untrue
and your angels to die still agree
:iconSS116:SS116
:iconss116:SS116 4 0
Literature
bless decay
rich and full
and free
a twisted knot hangs
from a tree
and underneath
a bitter hole
a little soul
who cries for
sleep
you'll want to
keep
these treasures found
just under ground
but in too deep
where all your
gemstones turn to
coal
and even lidless
eyes still weep
where even chained
we may yet see
:iconSS116:SS116
:iconss116:SS116 4 0
Literature
hymn for bombs
i want to watch
the world turn from
my tomb
i want the summer
sun to see how few
of you remain
your face will fall
the worms will rise
to kiss your face
open your eyes
i want to glow in
darkness sown in
ashen sky
i want to know
the reason even
good men lie
your feet will stand
on deeper ground
and walk through flame
without a sound
i want to spit
into this family's
open grave
i want to turn
away from unknown
generations
:iconSS116:SS116
:iconss116:SS116 3 0
Literature
eyes in the back of your head
look back on all you used to have
thank god for all you've gained
white skies above
black earth below
and you between
stand still unstained
to feel as lonely as i do
is all you'll ever need
an endless seed
a mountain small
and i the island
real and true
we fade by days
look up
look down
you'd trade it all
to have to stay
and hate each moment
:iconSS116:SS116
:iconss116:SS116 2 0
Literature
rule
my kingdom made
in stars and shallow graves
her halls not often tread
whole and dread her pillars
less than brave
throne still beneath me
wounded and silent
i know when
my next breath will be
and by whom sent
crowned in and above
the weight makes me cold
and pride keeps me down
the price of her ever unsold
a sea under which i can drown
:iconSS116:SS116

Literature
sunlight
black bone
white stone
last light
lost home
hearts long
to lie still
to die real
to live alone
:iconSS116:SS116
:iconss116:SS116 3 0
Literature
me and you
the planet turns beneath me
not on axes but on screams
full in flesh
bereft of conscience
dead to life yet caught in dreams
you stand screaming at the waves
as they align to kill you
whole in depth
designed in space
unconscious blood nemesis craves
:iconSS116:SS116
:iconss116:SS116 2 0
Literature
a little ways away
your glass eyes ignite like the spheres
still as dark as the sea where they fly
looking down into me and my fears
full and honest your heat they belie
you're the colors i'll never abide
still as dark as the covers i weave
you're the inside to match the outside
full of all i've been blessed to believe
:iconSS116:SS116
:iconss116:SS116 2 0
Literature
the greatest show on earth
unity creased like a page
the rage of man often increased
in that moment the lives in us cease
and released from our crimes we stand tall
there's a moment just after the fall
when all consciousness drains to the sea
where each drop of us begs for a wall
to rebuke as we take on the beast
mourn us not for the name we are called
but for all we left false and untried
for the guilt of a life lived enthralled
for the rivers we swallowed uncried
in my wisdom i knew not at all
how the sun would turn black o'er the stage
where hanging before you i sing
and folded i lie in my cage
:iconSS116:SS116
:iconss116:SS116 2 0
Literature
divided
winter's an unending hole
clawing through time on its way
to the future fall already stole
and here i am stuck in today
i saw your eyes looking away
and knew you were already gone
it's a humorless game we all play
at the feet of omnipotent dawn
i flow down o'er a merciless weir
lower still than i thought i could be
yet unmoved as my neck is laid bare
and the stones are the last things i see
:iconSS116:SS116
:iconss116:SS116 2 0
Literature
turn
pour out my wisdom and pain
until only your light can be seen
remove the fog i love and walk through
take time away from me
i hide my face
what now can i gain?
your devouring hand is yet gentle
my own lie in vain
put a heart back in me
where now only consequence lives
not for my glory or name
but for the depth of your word
:iconSS116:SS116
:iconss116:SS116 1 0
Literature
wait
how quietly we see
a future not yet won
neither eager
nor deceived
an unlived life begun
hardened but free
:iconSS116:SS116
:iconss116:SS116 4 0
Literature
politic
i want to be
able to die
but i can't
and the world
has ceased
turning
and stopped
at a slant
but my eyes
will keep
searching
to find a
way off
until then
i'll still cover
my mouth
when i
cough

i was surprised to notice recently that my previous journal entry has been viewed some 900 times. who is actually reading this garbage? knock it off!

i actually have a lot to talk about. my life has been interesting, and getting more so. 


i'm going to keep it to myself though. not out of mistrust, or contempt, or egotism. 

only because i don't care. this world is a graveyard full of ghosts.

You are very welcome for the watch and the llama! If you see my art, and enjoy what you perceive, mayhaps you'll offer me the favor of returning the watch! ^-^

P.S.

Though, I wonder why you felt the need to point out that we are different people. Were you trying to be rude on purpose?

we have fundamentally different worldviews and you seem to be more emotionally expressive and open than i am. there are other differences of course, but those are the two main things i noticed
