Daydream

Not today, i’m constantly procrastinating Telling myself it’s not the right time Then I give in I sit in the same spot for hours Accomplishing nothing at all Well, not exactly I let my mind roam free Accessing thoughts and imaginative realities unheard of I’m now in a place where nothing matters A place where…

Alone

I sit and think about why. I would ask someone, but there’s no one around. I was an outcast. Someone who people thought was weird. Odd. Different. Strange. BUT WHY? What did I ever do? What could I have done? How could a single person possibly be exiled by everyone? What did I do to…

I stand alone and cannot believe how afraid I am. My heart sinks, but I just stand here. Cold, emotionless. I keep on with my day. As time progresses things get worse. To the point where it almost seems unreal. I’m living in a terrible nightmare. When I sleep, I indulge in it more so….

Dealing With Our Inner Demons

So today I decided to try something new; I went on Facebook and asked what my friends wanted to hear. I know I probably should have asked a wider variety of people, but they’re my friends and I value what they have to say. Now you may already know which topic I chose, since it…

The Act Of Caring

Supposedly when you care for someone you gather all of your emotions and put them toward the ones you care for. But what happens when you are the only one that cares? what happens when you fall down and reach your hand out in hopes of someone that you love to pick you up? what…

‘Living for a Plank and Four Wheels in a Profligate Culture’

Originally posted on Longreads:
My wife, Daphne, got to something I’d been trying to figure out for years when, after reading a particularly asinine article in the February 2003 issue [of Thrasher magazine], she said: “It’s really not OK that these people are using so little of their brains.” “Using so little.” It’s the perfect…
