So there goes my life, Passing by with every exit sign. It’s been so long, Sometimes I wonder how I will stay strong… No sleep tonight … I’ll keep on driving these dark highway lines, And as the moon fades One more night gone, only twenty more days. - “Hello, I’m in Delaware”, City & Colour It’s been a competition meriting apathy, a...

“For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” (II Corinthians 4:6) “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not for your own?” (I Corinthians 6:19)

- - - I panic like my mother. I am not living as I should. I don’t think I’ve ever truly been able to forgive myself. Am I hard enough on myself? What will it take to learn? There is no time to feel what is called “satisfied”. I am not doing enough. A white noise, still. Forgive me. - - - Slowly, December’s passing will result to the residing of my stress. ...
current simple thoughts
- - - Wow, I’m freezing… Laying in bed with a full jacket on, buttoned up all the way along with jeans and tall socks - how ridiculous. The heat is on high, you wouldn’t know it. Holding in a sneeze is always the craziest feeling. I’ve concluded it’s indescribable. Why do I keep procrastinating instead of writing this short critique? I wonder what the...
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!! -to all of those who are celebrating, have a wonderful day!
Happiness is a Warm Gun
Yesterday I came home for this year’s Thanksgiving break. And though it feels like everything I’ve needed, it’s not vacation. How do I express it? Happiness is a Warm Gun. - - - What a long, tiring day this semester has been. Won’t you look at where I’ve come? Now I find my bed, my very own that I’ve always known. Home is comfort. A warm blanket swaddling...

I am not now, and never intend to be, an absurdist. So take my meaningless views and step on them, on your laminate flooring, pour alcohol, ashes, and dirty tread on them. Maybe they’ll shine brightly in the light the morning after, and maybe you’ll hear church bells and wonder what that noise is… i am so hypocritical, it’s true.. but i hold stock in non-existent...

George Winston - “Thanksgiving” off of...
So I had another nightmare, similar to the rest of them. I swear I was only asleep 8 minutes, that’s all it took to drop into pseudo reality.. I can’t remember what I saw, I only remember how I felt and describe what appeared in terms of light. A wide tunnel, it glows light. I’m not scared, but curious. I walk forward without hesitation, confident in each step. I continue...
Dreaming only of reaching the high peaks.. I know, I’d be stepping in the snow and feeling the harsh wind on my face… Glimmering at the top, the veil of whispering pines reveal their most kept secret. It is their gift, their reward, to deem passers’ worthiness of relief. Mountain life’s secret presents a taste, and an injection through me - oh, how I want to see again....

-Inferred conversation based upon narrative excerpt from Ordinary People- Dr. Crawford: Why did you do it? Conrad: I had to get some sleep somehow. ——————- There aren’t enough hours in the day. I’ve developed an awful insomnia, need to be able to focus on the hum of the fan to divert attention from my thoughts. What do I need? What is my...

To Forgive... But not forget.
What are we asked to do through the duration of this pain? Tell me… Like a dissonant chord, sustain your inner-fire for your own thoughts, although its existence inevitably clashes with hurt. Our society makes show of emotion to be unacceptable. Society evokes our “umbrellas”, our “masks/faces”, etc. Perpetuating the emergence of pain is a pressure. Ranging...
