Buds within gardens

Swanston St
Segue to another world
all hours of the day
smoke, tram chimes, and lit nights
a palette corner
of the city's glistening fluorescent rays
colour my way
 elegant, quick stride
bustling people and artful buskers
a head flick suspends
connected eyes within shared intimacies
my heart anticipating the next encounter
take me home
 ringing sleeping ears.

their temperament tenacious
  my audacious disagreement
don't look me in  theeye
 this has angered me
not just the words  stir my composure
  the mindraces
how  much  more  can  we  take?
My heart rejects them
in every conceivable way asofnow

who are they

at the waist
Lights darkened
at the end of happy hour.
It ushered in a new time
of the night.
Empty spaces filled
highlighted and buzzing
to the hips and hits in play.
They felt bold
as they grabbed their hand
to dance.
A second
a touch away
this was what they waited for.
:iconperiodicfable:PeriodicFable 10 2
Let's write this out of order
Just as I always have
I shan't elaborate
nor hide behind flimsy reasoning
A flurry of pages
decants this air
I taste its wooden perfume
and hack at the dry aftertaste
before chocking on graphite
as a fake gem
under polarizing pressure.
A tradition far too withstanding
and infallible should be addressed
as I  h i d e  my shame
Unpolished edges drew blood.

I may need an extra layer today
Sharp as a tack
 I am peeled
until I'm within a membrane of my insecure containment field
is that cliche?
  Or can you just see me at my thinnest?
Throw pillows
I would wish for that.
From one suburb to the next my air differs
  I wonder if

  See, I lose sense of my personal shape amongst others
   and I repeat hypocritical mantras to myself
regarding relationships with
my associated forms of
Keep that damn mirror away from me, darling
I daren't share the view.
I'll shed off the layer
as needed
 with a level of confidence I'll never be able to gauge
I wonder if I impart such things
enough about me
 Tell me all about everything
about you

a w a y.
You turn this wondrous
city to convoluted cigarette
smokes of unnecessary tensions
black hole of disillusion.
You mistreat your friends
rippling in this mutual pool
of unbalanced treatment
one who feels but cannot be
beyond help.
I've served my time
I'm grown older present me
you disintegration I fear for you
lost lamb.
You have your kicks
away away from me
but also do please heal
you constant source of stress
and undeserving sympathies
sucker and in need of a different
kind of kinder mirror.
As with anyone, I'll love my
fellow human being but you push
and have pushed till you're far
away away from me please.

Vociferate (vociferant)
Pudgy fingers
planted a seed.
Listlessly, curiously
after a day at school.
Humanely, the seed
was never famished
bogs and peats
making friendly conversation.
In its excitement
and fascination with its nutrients
so vivaciously
did it ascend
ascend to the questioning
and questionable heavens.
Mercy, was this sapling
happy and thick with itself.
Midlife crisis
alert, you've lost a
branch or two
naïve leaves unmissed.
Over-excessive naturality
you feared.
The tree shrank back
from the sad.
Now-slender fingers
stroke the tree's truncated
mast of bark.
Strength sourced variously
They had time for
each other to express
their regrets and open pores
old friends seldom die.
Fear became obsolete
to the awakened being.
Embracing stagnancy
the stunted passed peacefully.
:iconperiodicfable:PeriodicFable 8 7
Thy inner paean

was unknown                
never knew his history                                            
Yet deeply                                                                        
he was thrown                  
into the accusatory

the tap drips
as the glistening torrents
ride away thoughts of the past
i tighten my grip
to stop the excess
wastage, cold and judgmental
unlike the sea
beckoning me to grandstanding
upcoming life
and livelihoods
yes, i see the bigger picture
but i wish to embellish the moment
for until the time comes
where i may cross the partition into a new threshold
inadequacy threatens my daily structural integrity
drive drive drive
strive for breathing
i am breathing now
alone in my kitchen
the tap stops
as i contemplate tomorrow's breakfast.
:iconperiodicfable:PeriodicFable 9 4
Unboxed and unimpressed
They are not robust,
    merely stubborn and inflexible
ready to suck such
energy of pragmatic vitality.
They tease of a thousand paths
    unimaginatively cubic
you change faces with your faces.
They scorn any emotional connection
    and never reciprocate.
you biased, indecisive prick, Rubik.
:iconperiodicfable:PeriodicFable 8 8
What are your dreams?
How do you contort to life?
Where does your heart throb?
Who has influence over your limbs?
When did it come to this?
This, of course.
Joy is not an antihistamine
as one would wish.
I need life to be dour for optimism
to abound out of spite.
It is strong and resilient then
as I have never known otherwise.
What is this?
My blood type is nearly positive.
It holds to routine and obligation
but a stronger reductant courses my veins.
Do your hear a distant exhalation
of hesitant renewal, fear of hope?
Me neither. I feel it.
It swells, me, inside.
:iconperiodicfable:PeriodicFable 19 10
Time for some poetry
where I work backwards
rushing through the rusty
factions of what has been
Before I sleep
and bid farewell
to the witch's keep
that is my private thoughts
It's an end of an era
anticlimactic yet optimistic
The stern got reworked
into an acute prong
Goodbye, dinghy
of childhood security and
abstract stability
I embrace the night
What has been achieved
this is the beginning
Larynx, get a grip
It’s the year of the Heart.

Hey now, glad you're here. How are you? Talk to me.

I honestly believe we all talk to ourselves, in some way or another. Today, and I am sorry to hop onto the soapbox, but I wish to open a discussion with you. Communication between me and those whom I watch, and those who I watch, matters to me.

I an attempt to talk with myself in a positive light today, I found myself reflecting on my time and presence here. In fact, after examining my profile to clean up any messy bits I did not like, I realised I have one hundred artists watching me. 

One hundred. Hot damn, what happened here?

Is what I asked myself - where did these lovely people come from and what possessed them to press that button?
I am sure the answer varies, and I wish to thank you all dearly for being here. I would never have guessed I would be this lucky to have so many around to bring me such joy - seems like the last I checked, I had five watchers and I was rapt!

You know as well as I do that it is not the numbers, the quantity of entities that makes for a fulfilling time, but it is their quality. Thus, I am blessed.

Thank you all for everything. May the happiness not stop anytime soon!

Now, enough about me; what is news with you? I am a dummy!
