    The Porch Swing

    I spent the better part of this afternoon contemplating the purpose of dreams. Why, I asked myself is the brain capable of creating this conscious manifestation of something that we desire when it is wholly impossible in reality? Cruel occipital lobes, flashing images that then...

    Most people like to wish upon a star.

    All the while I'd just like to hold one in my hands.

    I sometimes stare into the stars & think about

    time & space. I think about what is beyond the universe & if time will ever come to an end, considering there was a beginning point. If I had one wish, it would be to travel the universe, nothing more...

    Have you ever wondered

    that maybe, dreams are a recollection of memories from past lives and from paradise lost. And that when you die, that maybe you completed your mission/purpose on earth, so your soul travels to the gates to judge how well your mission was completed. If poorly, the souls travels...

    A Day In the Life At Ep

    I've been here a few weeks now but I still feel so young & inexperienced, on this site I mean, not in real life.  OK, well sometimes in real life too but that's another story.  I had no idea where to write this so I just picked a random...

    My thoughts flow like water,

    rushing silently through the rocky crevices of my mind. Sometimes, they are still, the water is calm, the river is peaceful and I can be still. Other times they are rushing, crashing against the rocks, forcing me to take notice....to try and calm the rapids and restore peace to...

    I Search For You

    I am always thinking about the purpose of life, the 'reality' of existence, trying to logically fit the pieces of the puzzle together, trying to understand, trying to find answers, trying to find you..... I am always looking for signs, searching eyes, listening for words of...

    The older you get, The less you know.

    Or is it simply That you start realizing Just how little you know In comparison to The vast quantity There is to know?

    Thinking right now. What do you think

    Nationalism serves? People say its a good thing. People like me say it isn't. Sure, I get it, people can feel free to love their country I don't care but its patriots that I can not stand at times. They always start up things, poke fun at other peoples countries, lives and...

    THE One Flaw In Women

    This one is for the ladies… By the time the Lord made woman, he was into his sixth day of working overtime. An angel appeared and said, "Why are you spending so much time on this one?"And the Lord answered, "Have you seen my spec sheet on her? She has to...

    Two years ago, I never thought I would've come

    this far musically. One of the major disadvantages of being stuck in a small town is that I couldn't put a band together if I had to. Two years ago, this was frustrating. I've always believed in the saying "where there is a will, there is a way" because I believe that willpower...

    I sometimes stare into the cosmos & wonder

    about everything. About the universe & what's beyond it, theories & religions & our purpose as human beings. I wonder how our planet is to survive if we're killing each other. I think our purpose as human beings is to unite the planet as one.

    The night takes my open mind

    and sprinkles it across its darkened, cloudy palette. My thoughts nothing but the stars glittering with naughty intent. Is it the moon that winks, or the baby suns? Bright, so bright. But my eyes are nothing but dull, burning orbs. The night stole my mind, and my demons keep it...

    The heart says, "Fly high" The mind responds,

    'The dream is too high"... Heart constricts; Mind cramps. Spirit jolts to consciousness Soul cries in gnawing pain.

    I wish I would grow wings one day,

    to fly away from my existence. Responsibilities drowned in thick oil, fear strangled by the hands of death. The cape I wore would be soiled. My tied tongue no longer my barrier, expelled to free my mind's agony.

    Shadows of Thought

      I was reading through my journals recently. Fifteen-years-old seems so long ago. I guess some things are better left in the past, unthought of and unseen.  Maybe I shouldn't have read those notebooks. Still, I can’t help but feel bad for the girl who...

    I think this is totally true.

    Fantastic sex, or fantastic sex that I have had, has always started with mental foreplay. I think imagining what you are going to do to someone, or what they are going to do to you, is a serious turn on. Telling someone what you are thinking makes the build up more intense. The...

    Back In The Day

    I once had the arrogance to believe that I would change the world. But, as what happens over time, the world changed me. The ideals are still there, but they keep get buried deeper every year. I become a little more cynical. I've seen so much promise die. People fight, give...

    Why do I miss when you were never there?

    Why do I long for your touch when it was never mine? Why do I keep on hoping when its clearly hopeless?

    It's funny and you may need to be of my

    generation to get this, but we all grew up being sold the fairy tale. You know the one, the tale of living happily ever after. We were led to believe that by a certain age it would be a certain way, we would be happy, set for life, and have no worries. And maybe we weren't...

    I used to believe in fairytales

    and happy endings. Now I just believe in the story, the journey.Is it best to love even though you know it cannot be? Is it better to take the journey, to live in the moment despite knowing the end won't be happy, or is that creating a self-fulfilling prophesy of an unhappy...

    one you read about. I have those dreams, you know? Living life to the fullest? Happiness, appreciation of life.. that is me summed up. I want to be surrounded by nature. Befriend every animal I see. Spread love. Meet new people. Experience new cultures. TRAVEL. I'd be okay...

    It seems like as I get older,

    Finally!

    Five Days Later.

    You opened this door. Why are you here? Must be your choice. There is no such thing as chance. Survey the room. Since you are here. It is expansive. Large glass windows. Billowy white sheers. The wind blows in lifting the sheers, fluffing them. The room is overcast. The skies...
