Frustration

Frustation a feeling of hopelessness
indecisions cooled off, replaces
by hot heat sizzling past sins
but not eradicating them from memory
memory
memory is what haunts us taunts us
keeps us awake at night
if only recollections would fade disappear
let me fade away
away from what I did but also
to what I will become
Let me be the present.
The past is alive, and so is the future
only the present eludes me
there yet not there
keeping me awake at night
and not awake enough in the day.

once i asked you your favourite colour, and you said, "the brown of your eyes," so i put in one green contact and told everyone that i came out of the womb as a factory defect, half-priced, damaged goods. - sometimes i am from canada and sometimes i am from england and sometimes i am from spain. i've carefully tempered my accents and plotted out my stories with yellow and purple coloured pencils on index cards. my origin changes like the seasons. "why do you lie to everyone?" you ask. "why not?" i reply. - i wear nametags that read "alicia" and "liana" and "samantha," because i want to know how it feels to be someon

Dream On
A dream can be a passing thought; a passionate ambition. A dream can be a battle fought; a superficial mission. A dream can be a driving force; a forgiving comfort. A dream can be a thriving source; a deceitful consort. A dream can thrill you; drive you or kill you. Beware of this, dreamers— and Dream On.

but this isn't just distance as in space, not just distance as in whispers of, "i can't believe how far you are from me, i miss you" - this isn't just distance in the way that roads seem to spill over hilltops for years, stretching like skin across knuckles but never ending,   no. this is the kind of distance that isn't seen but instead felt, that isn't marked by miles or gas money and can't be pinned in two spots on a map with red thumbtacks: this is not hearing from you for days and knowing you haven't noticed. this is wanting to have you beside me and knowing you're just fine   alone. this is the kind of dist

this is a really good piece. Captures what I think we all feel from time to time. THere are few emotions worse than frustration... seems there's rarely anything you can to do to lift that away when it's there. :hug:
