did you spend
last night digging
in my graveyard of a chest?
i seem to have a hole
this morning -
where did you put
your heart you
bitch, i know you
must have one there
and when the light lets
itself in through
my bedroom curtains,
i will always say
get fucked
fuck off
fuck you
go fuck up
someone else
do you still crack
your knuckles when you're
angry? take two
sugars with your
tea, carry a scythe?
well i carry the devil
in from the car when he's too
tired to walk, he tugs
at my sleeve with his little
red fists, says i know how
hard it is to get closure
on something
that makes you feel
ripped wide open, mate,
now carry me in i'm too
tired for all this tonight -
oh, one more thing
the shore can never leave
the sea
no matter how hard
it tries, again and
again, you're going to get
fucked by the current,
so just go with the flow
it gets better,
spend the rest of your
life laying in that
bed you made,
spend the rest of your
life letting love
leak out of your fingers

the streets outside
breathe louder at night,
shut your eyes to the black
cats from salem burned
alive with their witches,
in the front row ten magpies,
he himself came to watch,
send her off with a spark,
send it all up in flames,
hear it's all in the wrist,
make it painless and quick,
she knows that a candle
can't threaten its wick,
last words -
she laughs
and lights up a cig

(eyes open and you see the darkness, eyes closed all the better to feel it)

So, I was ranting to my best friend because I felt like the most shittiest thing in the world. I'm sharing what she wrote to me. Seriously I'm just shocked as hell right now..

Me: I remember telling you this.
I think of myself as a dead tree that's still standing. People continuously try pushing it down, but for some reason, I still stand, even though all of my leaves are dead and falling.

G. C. Brahms: And wanna know something?
G. C. Brahms: That makes you amazing.

Me: I'm a dead tree, Lit.

G. C. Brahms: Let me speak, I'm about to say something important.

Me: Fine..

G. C. Brahms: Some day... You'll be telling a story to your daughter, or your friend, or somebody suicidal and you'll say to them "When I was younger I thought of myself as a dead tree... Still standing, but all my leaves were gone. And I thought it was the end. I thought it'd be better off if I just fell over... Little did I know that it was just winter... And that spring would come. And I'd grow again. Winter can last a long time... But some day, spring will come."

Went Undercover as a Student at a University

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 19, 2014, 12:28 AM

Sorry for lack of updates, I have been away for a bit. But now I am back to tell more stories and upload more art. Anyway. Sometimes Ry can be a troll (Just sometimes). And I did exactly that last week actually. I pulled off a 21 Jump Street. Right, so I was in Melbourne for a convention and I also stayed longer for a few days to hang out with friends. The night before convention, my friend Alice (Who is a core member of the Japan Club) invited me to visit her University at RMIT for a Japanese movie night as part of her Japan Club's activity. At first I was a bit unsure whether I should go or not since I am not a member of the club or the Uni. But I do like to watch Japanese movies, so I went! :iconmingplz:

So there I was, in a room full of young fresh Uni students. One thing I noticed is that when I went into the club room, some people knew each other but many were first timers, they were all introducing themselves to each other, and I did as well. At that moment I realised that everyone just assumed that I was an RMIT student, this sparked an opportunity... FOR FUN. So douchebag Ry used his acting skills that he learnt through years of watching Hollywood movies, and put on his best performance. My role? A student of RMIT studying Design and some leader in the Japan Club. :icontrollmorphplz:

Since Alice is a core member of the club and the fact that I was with her, many people thought I was actually someone important in the club as well. So I played along with this idea, I started helping out with the lights and doing things on the computer and packing up chairs and walking around asking everyone how they are, like a teacher. I also made some public announcements like "OK guys, thanks for coming to movie nights tonight, remember to check your emails for upcoming events for the Japan club ok?". To which many members nodded like students listening to a teacher. Alice was face palming herself the whole time, she knew exactly what I was trying to do and I just laughed. //Rytroll

Then we all went to dinner together after the movie, and I actually started making friends with the students. Everyone was very nice to each other, and to me too, it felt really nice and kinda different from how it usually is, usually people are nice to me but thats because they are fan of my art and know me as Ry-Spirit already, but that night I was just a regular guy. The club members were surprisingly super nice to a point that I felt guilty about my act and eventually told a few members that Im not actually part of the club... or the University... or even from Melbourne. But they were polite even after I told them Im a fraud. I told them who I really was and my real reason for being in Melbourne, I then invited them to come to Supanova the Convention, to which many came. I gave free prints to some of them.

I had such a good time that I begged Alice to hold another Japan Club meetup before I go back to Sydney. I suggested Bowling and Laser Tag. So she quickly organised it on Facebook and we went there on Tuesday night, I don't think I've had that much fun for a very long time. Everyone was making jokes and being friendly. It was my second time playing Laser Tag and it was so much fun! But all good things must come to an end. The day ended and some of the less informed members said goodbye to me and said they hope to see me again next week... to which I just smiled and replied "yeah....". While the members who knew that I won't be back for a while said their goodbye more properly. A new friend I made from the club Manaki also gave me a little Japanese coin as a gift as well, he told me its what Japanese give to each other as a sign of respect and friendship. I nearly burst into tears. :icondesucraiplz:

Here's us having a dinner break from Laser Tag and Bowling.

So there you go. I went undercover and infiltrated a University, and as a result for my sins, I made some new friends...
So the moral of the story is.. lying is good. NO!! The moral of the story is, join clubs to make friends. There.
Ry-Spirit cares.

I have more stories to tell from my recent trips. Look forward to them :3
