Stream of Consciousness
By Emily Suarez
2007

The guilty retelling of an old tale
The hopes and the dreams that seem destined to fail

The scribbled notes on the parchment we leave behind
As other fools wonder with their narrow mind

The messy scrabbles of a pencil loosing it’s lead
The wail of a child who has hit her head

The constant mumbling of a time gone by
The gentle mourn of a kitten’s distant cry

The insistent repeat of something we knew
The loss of a child who never grew

The depression of a world in toil
The whistle of a kettle put on to boil

The civilized murderers with gun in hand
A rhythmic beat of a marching band

Something we wish we had forgot
A memory of a feeling that was not

The ignorant thoughts of an apathetic nation
The joy of a writer’s sudden inspiration

The scorn for a leader who doesn’t care if we fall
The fear of a hope that wasn’t at all

The meaning of words that seem not to make sense
The absence of any kind of significance

Repetitive, unceasing, wanderings of a soul
The stream of a consciousness we humans hold

there are demons in your eyes, darling; fall asleep listening to their screams, fall asleep tracing your ribcage and wonder if maybe your heart is a ghost, maybe your heart is haunting someone, somewhere. fall asleep and dream of needles prodding at your mind, pulling out the weeds as if your mind was a garden, your mind is a garden but once the weeds are gone, there is nothing but dirt; dirt and worms and nightmares and screams. dream of fingers shoved down your throat, and they have found your heart and your heart is not a ghost, no, your heart is alive, because the fingers are clawing your heart and it hurts like fingernails o

We breathe heavily as we face each other Hearts at a race as the truth uncovers Down my neck Rolls a drop of sweat As I realize just where we're at Anxious yet nervous   Scared is not the word but, What would happen if someone heard us The thought quickly leaves As you come even closer to me My heart skips and I forget to breathe A quarter inch from you I can't run, why would I want to? You know I want you, and I see what you want too My arms slowly wrap around your waist Your sweetness I prepare to taste We tilt heads and our lips barely touch Slowly part, then back again, This time quenching tongue's thirst for lust

So since I'm still artless I've decided to submit some poetry (which I'm really bad at so take pity on me) to prove that I haven't completely dried up. I finished Sound and the Fury a couple months ago and I'm still reading James Joyce's Ulysses which are both in the stream of consciousness style of writing so I guess that's where this came from... sort of.....

Thanks! Just something I came up with while walking my dog. Oddly, I come up with a lot of ideas while my dog takes a poo. :O_o:

I was thinking of making that picture my icon, but it looked funny when I made it small so I just decided to use it as my poetry preview for the time being.
