and they are forever explaining.
When they speak anonymously, we ask for a name.
When they say their name, we put them to shame.
When they say something stupid, we question their validity.
When they speak intelligently, we tell of their stupidity.
When they go right, they must go left.
When they go left, it's always a threat.
When they are inside, they lose their sense.
When they're outside, the games commence.
When they want peace, they are all whimps.
When they declare war, we put them on the level of chimps.
When the flower blooms, it doesn't have enough color.
When the flower dies, we need them to plant another.
When they give us water, we crave wine.
When we are drunk, water seemed perfectly fine.
When they live, it's all gone to shit.
When they die, their presence is missed.
When they sing, they are all off key.
When they sing well, we refuse the ticket fee.

Who will fire first?
Who will awaken the worst?
There's a dire lack of water,
and an unquenchable thirst.
There's nothing that stumbles
among the flat grounds,
but this is why we will crumble.
Is the world not round?
We all hold our guns ready.
We will all hold our ground.
We know exactly what must be said
but nobody can make a sound.
We all are nothing but virgins to peace,
and we show no such lust.
When you watched Jesus die,
who did you think you could trust?
A woman walks between us,
she begs us to stop.
There are crumbs where we need crust,
and the first tear slowly drops.

a human response to the clock's rhyme.
Love is all glorious hate
that refuses to properly demonstrate
It's such a sentence
and life's menace,
yet I'm so hopelessly addicted.
My former definition is so infinitely contradicted.
The emerald liquor in her eyes,
the way she sings and the song within her sighs.
Is to be addicted ridiculous or grand,
when I feel the warmth flow into my soul from your hand,
perhaps a compassion fashion
with no limit in ration?
Is the light shining all around you chemically derived?
Is it not the medicine that keeps me alive?
My life is flavored by the basil hazel color
and delicate clues that suggest I'm her other.
I can't say everything I want to say,
but we'll soon be free somehow .
What is love?
I must be honest: I'm not sure.
If it isn't perfect, or if it's impure,
it's a lethal disease for which there is no cure.
All of us have it,
there's no escape.
It lives inside us when we sleep,

i turn and walk from the dark lashings
the wounds are starting to heal but i miss the warmth
i cant see where i am going but i know
as long as i keep the fire at my back im doing ok
i scream and yell for a sign that i am not alone
but all i hear are my footsteps and the hope they give me
that i am going to someplace better
i quietly surrender to the path and trust in nothing
no plan ,no remorse, no regret
i long for the healing touch
the sweet caress that only a soulmate can give
to help me forget about these burns and
find the brighter place at the top of the mountain
the path is getting surer and the walls are getting closer
the end is in sight but its getting no close

Remember back when we used to walk along the beach when the sun went down and the stars and moon turned the sea silver.
You said "The stars make your eyes glow" so softly and sweetly that it made us stop walking and just stare at each other as the waves blissfully crashed into the waves.
That sound stays with me, does it stay with you?
I hope you never forget that I spent helping you clean your house before your parents got home.
I spent forever trying but failing to clean the bathroom floor when you burst in with a camera.
I still have the photos, One with you carrying me on your back through the kicthen, us both laughing til our chest hurt.
Another one with me, foam smeared on my cheeks, and my nose. You were leaning in and kissing me softly on the lips while I was trying to get the foam in your hair.
One more showed you carrying two cups of tea, looking like a maid with your mothers lacy apron.
I sometimes flick through them for inspiration, I think about if you think abou

I want a Daily Deviation!Just one. I'm not greedy. I promise... I'm just really frustrated, truth be told. I've been waiting to get one ever since I understood what it was.. And what an honor it would be! All that exposure! I know that I shouldn't treat it like a goal or a prize, as though getting one would suddenly make me a great photographer. I know that isn't entirely true and that it isn't the best outlook to have because there are plenty of deviants who are great at what they do and they haven't gotten DDs yet either. But then, at the same time, I see others getting multiple DDs. Not that they don't deserve it. But so do many others who haven't even received one yet. Even though I know it doesn't make someone good, I still feel like having received one really does speak to the talent of said deviant. Someone liked it so much to allow it to be seen by a lot of people that wouldn't have seen it otherwise. I can't help but want that! Will I ever get one?I want a Daily Deviation! in Personal More Like This
