When you’re an introvert like me and you’ve been lonely for a while, and then you find someone who understands you, you become really attached to them. It’s a real release.

I pour myself a cup of coffee
the way I always take it
bitter and black
just like my heart

and I remember


The day before thanksgiving……. 1991…….. holding you…. in my arms watching your eyes….. open……. for the very first time
Feeling… the warmth…. and softness of your skin
Understanding….. finally…… what it means to love… perfectly
Imagining…… a life…… with you………that was never……. going…… to happen


I wish that I were with you to celebrate your day
though I’d cringe were you to witness
the man shaped massacre
that I’ve become

What presents could I give you
my precious, little girl?
Humiliation, self pity and heartbreak
are the only gifts I have to offer

Your mother wasn’t wrong
to take your little hand and run
as far and as fast
as her feet could carry her

It’s better you don’t know
this hazy, fading shadow
of the man I used to be

So I raise my cup and saucer
high above my head
to offer a toast
that will never reach your ears

Tomorrow’s for thanks giving
Today is for regret
Happy birthday, baby

wherever the fuck you are

When do you feel like you wrote a successful piece of writing?

Anonymous

I don’t ever think I wrote something good. I scrutinize every single word and letter I write.

Poem #9

I decided
to wear my heart
on my sleeve
and it’s been
years since
I’ve gotten
a firm handshake.

poemsofthequiet:

Did you hang out with the person you like recently? Sadly, no. BUUUUUUT, if a book counts (which it does for me) then yes…Yes, I did ;)

What is the last beverage you had? Venti triple cafe mocha!

Are you going out with the last person you kissed? Nope. 

Are you starting to realize anything? Yes. A LOT A LOT of things. One, in particular is that I’m starting to realize how silly it is to make one single thing so important that when it’s gone it affects the way you live your life each day. 

What would you say if the person you love/like kissed another girl/boy? Well this is actually a situation I’ll be in sooner or later, I’m sure. So, what is there I can say? Things happen, people move on, people do things.It’s the (vicious) circle of life and it’s just how things work. I’ve realized that shitty things happen, and life happens, whether I like it or not. That’s another thing I’m starting to realize too. The world doesn’t spin for me, it just doesn’t and nothing happens to suit my liking, it’s just how it is. (though I’m sure a tear or two would be shed behind the scenes)

Blog rating: 

8.5/10 (I like that you post literature related things and you have a lovely face, though you should definitely post more selfies, dude.) 

ask me these, and I’ll rate your blog!

I refuse to accept this. I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance. The poet’s, the writer’s, duty is to write about these things. It is his privilege to help man endure by lifting his heart, by reminding him of the courage and honor and hope and pride and compassion and pity and sacrifice which have been the glory of his past. The poet’s voice need not merely be the record of man, it can be one of the props, the pillars to help him endure and prevail.

The stillness of this soul
Is temporary.
Without longing or purpose,
It never does what it’s told.
It simply waits for something,
Anything,
To hold onto,
And call home.

Photographer and artist John Poppleton specializes in creating fantastical works of art painted directly on the human body. His Black Light Bodyscapes consist of gorgeous nature scenes painted with fluorescent pigments on the backs of female models, who are then photographed under black light to produce these extraordinary images.

What do you think of the same sex marriage and feminist movements?

Anonymous

I support same sex marriage (even though i don’t necessarily know why they would do that) I am also against all anti gay laws.

I think all women deserve to be seen as equal to men. I do personally think that women are superior to men though.
Note, i think that feminist that attack all men should shut the fuck up they’re annoying. Not all men are trying to keep you down.
