all that glimmers is not pyrite
all that loves cannot be you


in the beginning, there was a mommy
whose protection killed and care soured
but her kitten grew in limb and mind
and the mommy's cage strained to hold her bones
until the steel broke against the force of such a
fierce laugh
born of a 
soft growl


in the end, "you are my son" was not enough
to excuse the trespasses he had committed --
the hurtful remarks, the physical abrasions
could not all be apologized away
bruises don't wash out
and i couldn't just let you give him a pass
because you had come out better from it
because you had learned to disregard him
because he is your father
love cannot rewrite this history


sometimes when i lose my footing
balance lost in the bottle
i can see the balance you're searching for
it's out there
don't worry, you'll find it too
and you won't have to chase after it like i do
All that Glimmers
sometimes i get snatches and run with it.
cold stare 
warm embrace

she has a confusing resting bitchface
is she mad sad happy perplexed who knows
but you can bet that when she fixates on you
on the real you, the one inside that rarely gets seen
or sought out, or listened to,
you best believe that the real you experiences
the most nerve-wracking shiver 
she'll stop you in your tracks

her hands know just how to press against your skin
warm to the touch, it almost burns right through you
to the core - she has that way of 
holding you up, holding you still, yet
making sure you're still standing on your own two feet
her heart beats, blood pumping through her 
almost through you
she knows just how to keep you

too sharp to understand
too supportive not to
daggers / shielded
the boyfriend's younger brother would get crazy confused -- "hey, is she doing that thing? is that just the b-face?" -- because god forbid he ask me directly. my whole life my sad face has looked pissed as hell and my angry face has looked depressed as hell. can't win.
you bump into my dreams and
i call you out; DECLARE YOURSELF

i know there's something wrong, something
no one else can see, no one else can be

what i am, creator and lover
master of my own universe
of my own mind

but that i means i must be brahma
shiva and vishnu - what is borne of me
will be protected and inevitably
destroyed by me

that is love: to build you up and break you down
in fits of inspiration
i see the possibility and it takes hold of me

i am the conduit for the everything and nothing
exuding orgone energy 
i am but the inside of the outside

if you bump into me, i'll shake some
but you cannot break what you do not understand
at least not efficiently
Third Eye Sight
had a weird dream two nights ago. most effective use of lucid dreaming i've ever done. wrote about it on tumblr, if you must know. the boyfriend has been looking up stuff on orgone energy and accumilators. maybe the muse is back? at the end of another semester, we resurrect.
he cried himself out into your letter
purple notebook dedicated to a heartfelt plea
six months after we tumbled heart over head

but now
a year later
he still cries when she sings
"in another life, i would make you stay"
tear stained face under my fingers
arms are all i can offer

i just want you to know
i cry for what you two could have been
i cry too
In Another Life
lyrics are from Katy Perry's "The One That Got Away."

today it crooned through the Lumina's speakers, from Pandora, and he sobbed some, tears leaving lines i can't attribute to wrinkles or smiles. 
i am the broken mirror:
fragments of myself, but all the same
whatever you want to see
aka yourself
complete with bruised eyes and bloody knuckles

i can only be as dangerous as you have made me
and i was lucky you had a shotgun in mind
i guess the only perk to this week's internal screaming and numbness is that i can write again. such is the way of the summertime.

You're very welcome, and thank you! I'm glad I finally got through the stack of yours I had hanging around for so long. I'm on break and trying to find things to do while I have the motivation. So far, I have done four loads of laundry, one load of dishes in the dishwasher and one by hand, and cleaned the litterbox. That's just today, and they're not even my cats! (I'm staying with friends till the dorms open up.) How is you?

Haha, yes, see, the reason I haven't posted anything in forever is because I was giving you a chance to catch up...yes... :D

What is this motivation you speak of? And do you have any to spare? 'Cause I probably need some of that. 
Sadly, I only do laundry when I run out of clothes to wear, and I'm the only dishwasher around here. The litterbox does get cleaned promptly, though, as my cat enjoys yelling at me otherwise. Also if she's hungry. Or she wants attention. Or the door won't open when I'm in the bathroom. Jeez, cat, give me a break. :shakes head sadly: 

But good for you! All gettin' things done and stuff. 
I've been all right. And you? How were your holidays?
