let's talk about whales.
there is a lot of poetry in a whale--
i like to think
that whales find peace in the depths,
in the abyssal darkness that,
doesn't choke so much as it

dreaming of kerouac
i want this to be delirious.
i want to pull the words out from my spine
slicksmooth like electrical wires--
i want the vertigo
the clawing at the tiles
on the bathroom sink.
isn't this supposed to be
strung up and strung
walking taut tightropes
and hoping for some literary

sound carries a long way
through sleeping deserts.
three miles off,
truck-radio karaoke is tinged with
cervezas and overexuberance.
water trucks blare their sirens--ice cream vans
for the old and boring.
our national language is yelling. locating calls
are met with answering calls
and somewhere a pack comes together,

house these winter thorns
in their chests
beasts? the soft and
heavy black stretch
of wanting, the bluebells
that grew in the warmth
of his sleeping breath, a dark
million miles of silence
how can a woman
bear it? that ache
as he burns and
strikes fires in the dark
the ache to sit and be
warm in his spit and
his glow, his warm
body, his warm mouth
as the wet of the
woods falls quiet

Happy Holidays and an UpdateHappy Holidays, everybody! Sorry that I haven't been on in like...a week and a half. I had wicked and awful flu, so I haven't done anything but lay in bed and be sad for that time. Anyway, I'm back on my feet. I have been for the past couple of days, but I have also started picking up extra shifts at work since I'm done with my finals and all that, so I can work more to make extra money. So I have been working nonstop 10 hour shifts lol I took today off cause I felt just awful. But I have 10 hour shifts the rest of the week, minus my day off on Thursday. It'll be worth it when I get paid. I am also wanting to buy a new tablet for myself and it's like 500 bucks, so gotta earn it right?More Like This
Anyway. I'm happy the Holiday season is among us. Mostly. I get really depressed during the holidays since most of my family, people I used to spend Christmas with, have died by now. I miss them, and miss the times I used to have. However, I am doing my best to stay cheery as I can be. I'm thankful

I was tagged by the lovely FlickeringCandle; the rules are simple: You have to paste the thumbs of 2 or 3 deviations of yours, that you posted around this date a year ago.
Then you tag 5 friends, and they shall do the same thing in their journals.
If the date wasn't around September, 2013--just post any poem that is from 2013 and close to it.
...unless you don't want to. It's fine.
Updates! Okay... The first week of college was pretty messed up. Along with my sleeping schedule. Nothing productive came as of late, except being able to see my lovely colleagues more often. And taking some classes. Pretty inactive on deviantART though. I'm planning to draw every weekend. Write occasionally. And reply every week. So please... Don't hate me for not being active... You really have no idea how much of them come in my in
For My Best Friend's GiftYou have been a dear, and one of the bestMore Like This
With your friendship, I was so very blessed.
In my heart, no one was able to get
Your special place, because only you fit.
Deep inside, I knew that you are the one
And I must admit, you are also fun.
May you enjoy these simple gifts of mine
Forever grateful to you, my sunshine.

Which I cannot measure;
From the way you spoke
Out of a heart that broke.
Just leave me alone
To me, you are unknown.
I was way too young
To uncover your tongue.
By many, I fell
Into what's worse than hell.
So stop blaming me!
Life is not always free.
Move on with your life
With finding a housewife;
To vent your self in
And let the game begin.

March 10 2013, I was having a 'sleepover' with a friend, MinsaChan to be exact. We had a meeting with a group of friends in Zwolle and afterwards she came with me, too my home 'up north'. She is an amazing artist herself, and a sweet girl, a good person and she had read some of my poetry. She said to me, 'I think this is something for you!', she showed me the site and I got enthusiastic, I wanted to join. She helped me create an account and I was sweet with it for the rest of the evening
The same day/eve, I uploaded the first poems:
I'm still quite proud of these, I remember hoping they would be "good enough". Never got much feedback on em though, for I was new
2 respondents on the second one though, 2 people I have absolutely fallen in love with, storystosee and @MagicalJ
