This blog is being moved to my new site which can be found here.
I will be reposting some of the content from here, but mostly I will be working on new content. The issue is primarily the url of this blog, it just irks me. The new site has only a few posts at the moment as I am still working on the site. My absence as of late has been primarily due to my working on other blogs as well as rethinking how I, personally, want to blog on WordPress. Feel free to follow me on my new blog.
It seemed the world
Turned its back on me
A hazy mess
When seen through the tears
That often cover my eyes.
Where to begin?
Every time I think
I break down.
My hair was cut the other day
Half of it ended up lost and forgotten on some floor half an hour away
It was the kind of cut that gives you anxiety about school
Because it is such a large change.
But then you walk to school,
Only to find exactly one person cares enough to say anything
And it’s the random guy who sits next to you in history.
I have more in common
With those lost and forgotten hairs
Sitting in a trashcan somewhere far away,
Waiting to be thrown out of memory.
I ran a dulled pair
along my wrists
because I knew they wouldn’t cut.
When you break
I would die
Before I see you snap
Perhaps man of old held the key
For it was Aristotle who said
“Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.”
I don’t know much, but I know I love you, for you and I are of the same cloth.
Perhaps what matters most in life
Is not the money
Is not the job
Is not the school
Is not the success
Is not the fame
One can devote a life to poetry
But a life spent writing poems alone
Only yields Melancholy scraps
Of a beautiful life
Better spent in company
You say true love
Is as futile as grasping for shadows
Perhaps your problem all along
Was not that the shadows Danced beyond reached
But that you grasped for the shadow
And not the real thing
