When you have no one, you'll understand.
I mean, having family and friends around aren't everything, but they're pretty much part of a bigger picture. Some people say "feeling alone" is the same thing as being alone, but if someone, like I, has the unfortunate fate of having both, it's different. It's like hearing every sound ten times more, because there is no other human voice to cause an obstruction in sound. It's like knowing every single creepy corridor in each silent scene of every scary movie, because they once existed in the mind (if they don't still exist now.) When there isn't even a child whose laugh would offset the monsters i
They taught us and told us how we were to live,
And love like the movies they shoved down our hides.
But when we had joy and compassion to give,
They threw us inpatient and locked us inside.
They taught us that if we were silent, we're lazy,
But if we spoke, we must think that we're tough.
To admit that we're lonely, we've got to be crazy;
Deny it, and we weren't looking hard enough.
They gave us the boxes then say, look outside it,
And if we strayed far, they called us a rebel.
Our problems weren't big, or so they decided,
So all of our boulders were measured to pebbles.
We grew on tv, and were given computers,
But told to read books

I'm as tired as long worn shoes
That have danced, run, climbed and stood
But it is the loved ones stepping harsh
That wears the sole more than time
I'm as tired as history upon memory
The fuller the life, more fragile the seamstry
And still I stand and creep along
Not waiting to kick the dirt
But to step up and do my part
To carry my light into the night
Born in Michigan, USA 1967. Moved with the Military to Germany. I have loved all forms of art all my life. I however remain more pencil and paper. Although I am getting more and more digital. If I do paint then I generally use oils. Although have been known to use mixed media. Any and all paints from model paints to tempra. I don't keep most of my originals. I guess they take up room or just do not inspire me so they have to find new corners to grow dust.
