Keep On
dusty white flutters from clouds saturated with precipitation
moon flowers have leaves of ice and hearts of rock
while the moon appears naught but as a dimly lit haze in the night.
my stomach sinks as words become twisted and feelings strained
contempt and sadness bleed from the faux brokenness of us
logic and reason have no part in this sad game;
they would know what to do
linoleum floors rub against my midnight suede boots
salted drops fall without hesitation onto the changing floor
and then onto moonflowers and pavement untouched by the darkness
red wool jacket mimics and mocks the fakeness of what is
gusts of wind stop moving predictably
the world stops spinning for just a moment, one breath
after that one moment, life resumes
people continue with their slumber.
And I,
I do too.

Change in You
I used to think that we were perfect together.
Nerves grazed opposite but equal nerves.
Your chest, lightly dusted with hair, grazed my breasts
like silk rubbing against velvet.
Equal, and opposite.
We were alive of each other,
within each other.
Flowers bloomed in my mind's eye
as your fingers traced unknown shapes
across the curves of my spine.
Our eyes met,
lips and tongues entwined,
dancing together with the never ending beat
of the hum of the universe.
I used to think we were perfect for each other,
because we were.
Things are different now.
Things have changed.
You have changed.

I want...
…to create something beautiful with words.
imprint images in people's minds
of humanity's greatest pleasures,
just like that lab we did in physics class
during the optics unit.
…to reach out and touch soul-to-soul,
just like two lovers standing on tiptoes
touching lips.
…to experience, react, live, share
with those everywhere
(because at the core we all share the same
stem and apple seeds).
…to make use of this platform of sharing
we refer to today as the internet,
but tomorrow as the future.

Writing is an expression.
It is the human-to-human,
soul-to-soul contact that we all seek.
Sometimes, it may not be the best phrased
or have the best metaphors,  
but in retrospect those things are less important
than the feeling,
and the passion,
and the humanity
that it truly conveys.
that's the true goal of human expression.
through the grand capture of something so plainly human,
we open up those same, plain, simple, wonderful thoughts
in others,
that seep from our bones
into the world at large.

erinyx's Profile Picture
United States
Double Majoring in Physics and Applied Math. Observer. Ravenclaw. Science-fiction enthusiast. Literal. INTJ. Atheist. Vegetarian. Flute & Piccolo Player. TV Show Aficionado. Politically Independent. Lover of Western America. Secular Humanist. Soundtrack Connoisseur. Not traditionally Spiritual. Mostly Libertarian. New Jersey Native.
It's been a year since my last DA journal post, so I thought that it was time for a new one. over the past year my creativity has dwindled and almost fizzled out into nothing. My focus was solely on that which would get me into college and help excel on my AP exams.

This fall I'm starting college, and may or may not be uploading regularly. However, I used this site as inspiration for writing and photography. It motivated me to develop my skills. Therefore, I intend to keep up this account. But just know that uploads may (or may not be) sporadic.

That's all for now folks!
