The 10:05 to ScarboroughPeter was a sociable creature until recently. He liked to go to parties and made games out of both drinking and seducing freshman girls. But as of late he became unimpressed with his life. Thoughts of mortality and taking his life sprung up like leaves on a tree when the snow melted. Tonight was to be the night. He had an antique pistol hidden deep in his pocket and planned to splatter his grey matter in a local field. This is where we come in.The 10:05 to Scarborough7 years ago in Transgressive More Like This
Peter walked down the train tracks, feeling rather despondent over his life up to this point. At age twenty-five he had nothing to show, as far as achievements go, save for a little league trophy

The sky was made for dreaming
naturally he thought of her
the wind danced playfully
across water serene
an ode to her laughter
in each ripple
lapping gently against
the shores of his heart
here beneath heavens blanket
so near yet so far
tucked in the hollows
of his anguish
the broken horizon
begs the question
is there grace
in your regret?

Quite alone in the dark night
With the faint sound of whishing
That emanates softly, so softly
And curls with a swishing
Of tails from the
Vast rows of trees
Quite alone in the dark night
Stand and stare at the white light
Of the flickering lamps
(Glowing softly, so softly)
Leaving bright blossom stamps
Gainst the wallpaper dark
Quite alone in the dark night
Wander close to a dim bridge
With its webwork of beams
Every filament glistens
(Shining softly, so softly)
Crane to them, he who listens
Hears the night echoes ring
Quite alone in the dark night
Cup of Tea PromiseCup of Tea Promise6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A cup of tea promise
starts, watered down
lies and coffee
We take a breath,
inhale the aroma of the mug,
accept what we find,
we drink to our own distaste.
Between bitter sips
warmed chests, clutched hands,
we sit in comfort of this liquid--
as if an elixir of life
snuck into the drink.
Despite cups with cracks and chips
we grip our mugs for comfort

To have you come inside me so
For everytime I see your face,
to drop dead in my skin and
glow with pleasure
To look at you with adore and admire
While you undo my heart
thread by little
blood soaked thread.
Those midnight murmurs laying in the dark
Resting in each other's hearts
"I think I'm falling in love with you..."
I want to live it

"What are you talking about?" Her newest male counterpart turned to look at her. "I mean I understand the sex part, but how do you smell candy?"
Veruca stood up and pulled on her pants. Her revenge wasn't going as planned. Alan left countless messages on her machine, each coo of "I'm sorry" replied to with a one night stand. She couldn't think of any better way to get back at him. She shook her head and pushed herself into her top. "Never mind." She muttered. She couldn't remember this one's name, was it Logan? No, Lee…Leonardo…Levi, Levi!

On knowledge and understandingPeople often make the mistake of confusing knowledge of something with the idea that they understand it. The two are related, though definitely not the same thing. It's like calling genius insanity, or lust love. They are connected so intimately, that it's impossible to separate them completely. It's a symbiotic relationship, with each part being integral to the others They're intertwined like a tree that grows around a fence or a pole, they've ceased to be separate entities, an they're completely inseparable.On knowledge and understanding7 years ago in Philosophical More Like This

Let us begin complete: a heart, a river stone--
Let us dream ourselves crocodile and wildebeest,
pampas and brushfire; as silk nets for butterfly

like fools guilty and innocent as guilt and innocence
accrue. Let us listen to the art of listening
and drown in the thought of inescapable flight.
Let us die, drunk on this life, and satisfied--
Bloodless mind bloodied: a murder undoing itself.

So this is about secrets, this is about all the little poems that are whispered in the dark, and perhaps now is the time I should tell you a little story. I tell you about a wonderful girl hiding herself in the shadows, but the sun reveals more of her than she knows, and so I fall in love with her eyes, her lips and the way she moves in my imagination. She's careful, she doesn't want to be found yet, but here she is, and Ra just decided to make her dance in his rays of light to show her beauty to the whole wide world.
