Letting go?
Be angry...
Slow to wrath
Be angry.
a time to kill
If you didn't love me so much, you'd be a rotten wrecked mess.
Sin not.
Of great undersanding
a time to heal
If twenty times the man is a fifth of the power, then what's left for a greedy pauper?
Letting go is the sincerest form of love,
and gentleness the most accurate blade.

I guess I'll stop chewing
Fill the loneliness with empty hearts,
Round circles encasing lost works of art;
It's not real,
It's not me.
But when anything says that
Everything gives,
Then I've got nothing left to think.
Spit out this life:
"You'd like to try some.
I'd like to die some."
Then GO!
And search for husky moans
Where nothing is left but skin and bones
And everyone hopes that everyone knows
Just what you can do.
Spit out this line:
"I'll have none of that!

But maybe some here,
Or, hmm, some of this…"
Shakes head in wonder
And shakes fists in hate.
These chains are not fit for meat
So I guess I'll stop chewing.

And still, it sits
His fingers have decayed to a rotting state. Not physically- his fingers still "function" perfectly "normal," only this time, they don't make music. A guitar rests in his lap, he picks it up to play it. He plucks a few notes, strums a few chords, runs through a few scales... and nothing. The air is no more filled with music than Sol is filled with water. Try as he may, there's no life to it. Previously beautiful chords become nothing more than vibrating air- there's no life to it.
Segments of songs become just that- disconnected, lifeless measures held together merely by rhythm, which becomes irregular at times. Fingers remember positions, but it seems strings do not remember their own beauty. They are more than willing to vibrate, it is their very duty. But where has the love they once felt gone? The gentle motions of a once graceful hand are replaced by the awkward muckings of lifeless, clumsy digits. The strings become uneasy at their treatment, and he can only apologize to them for

The Sun Sets
Does the sun not set on all creatures?
It's all a matter
of when and where.
Does one take a plane or car
to follow the sun?
Nay, lest it be a fruitless;
a futile endeavor.
But it remains that all must prepare
for the inevitable darkness.
Perhaps we shall learn
the beauty of the stars.

I know you
I know you.
I know your Past.
You know yourself.
You know your Past.
These are Separate, but have become jointed-
Don't define yourself by where you were.
Don't define yourself by where you are.
Define yourself by where you can go.
You don't see Potential?
It's there. I know you.
Stop thinking about who you are,
and focus on the fact that you are
and that you Can Be, still.
Demons will haunt us- torture of the Past,
  apathy for the present,
    fear of the Future.
I know you.
I Love you.
Love yourself.
I once spoke of Progression;
"With blind eyes as guides,
and neutrality our banner,
Do we not offer ourselves up to the very thing that binds us?
Do we not bind ourselves with the very motion that frees us?"
It's time our Progress became Real,
and it's time we stop clearing Trees to see The Forest.
You don't know Me,
I thank God.
but you Know me...
Really, you do.
I thank God
And I thank God
that I know you.

Eating Habits
Garlic, ginger, rosemary, thyme, spinach, tomatoes, a little tabasco. The meat came last.
With a scowl she scooped out the lard with her hand and slopped it onto the floor, before proceeding to grind the mixture. Baba Yaga sighed. She didn't have to watch her weight in the old days.
Humans these days. So unhealthy.

The Arms Of Rome
I met Ed when I joined the Marines for the first time.  Her name is Jessica Edwin, but in the Marines she was Corporal Edwin, or Ed.  It stuck.  She was tough and pretty, smart, driven, and two years older than me.  I was nineteen and foolish.  Somehow it worked.
We got married when we found out she was pregnant.  My parents were very nasty about it.  They felt I'd somehow taken advantage of her.  Good as raped her.  Her parents were wonderful.  They hosted the wedding, Ed and I wore our dress blues, and took an oath that meant even more than the one we swore to our nation.
Tiger was born just a few months after that.  Ed's four year contract was finished, so she found us a little house near the base.  She found a job, and she raised Tiger, almost by herself, while I ran PT, stood firewatch, crawled the obstacle courses, fired my rifle, shipped out on West Pac, and ca

ps: what is your drum recording ability status?
AvoidingCliches Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2011
I should have read this last month... Definite record-ability here, but virtually nothing at school.
j2n4me Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2011
Are you already at school is the joke?
AvoidingCliches Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2011
The joke involved me leaving for school like... shortly after you read that...

But I will probably be home most of christmas break... Is there a lyrical cat stuck in some musical tree for me to save, or something?
