They Tell Me Nice Things – a poem

They Tell Me Nice Things – a poem

 

Another assignment for the books…

THEY TELL ME NICE THINGS

 

There’s a club if you’d like

To jump off

 

I throw my head off

And I think

they like me

 

Inside there was the

Smile of tobacco

And a boy

But really, he’s just a boy with fingers

And a girl

Crying in my glass

Still tastes pretty

 

I pulled off my lips

And I found myself attractive

And the tobacco was still

Smiling in the corner

And I danced around jokes

 

My friends walked through

Puddles of fire

While I dig up some lode

Resigning my eardrums for the night

And we breezed

And told me nice things

SOTW #95

SOTW #95

Hey guys, thought I was gonna leave? Well, you thought wrong. I’ve been taking a break ever since my birthday, now I’m back…(for now before I leave again). Hey, it’s a one-woman show here! I got to make time and there’s only so much. What was I supposed to talk about again? Oh yeah, music!

Here’s is some good stuff I’ve been listening to :)…

CLOUDBUSTING – A POEM

CLOUDBUSTING – A POEM
(title inspired by the Kate Bush song)

CLOUDBUSTING

For the second time I asked

why the clouds were late

I grew rosemary on my

temples and collected

Vesper

               tines in the morning

 

wax of secrets and diaries of

beauty for

               the second time, a second time

the world was made with

paper and construction blue

 

I love it when

my stomach jokes

and when my elbow drove me to the lake

with a door, and I

remembered the last time my liver was

handed, crowned with

jewels and baskets of

oranges, the ones picked

last night rolled back twice

on some moss’s jealousy

 

I wonder why

I wonder

Why the second time

the clouds didn’t call today

IM FEELING READ BUT WEARING BLEW

IM FEELING READ BUT WEARING BLEW

Hi everyone, I’ve collected some poems but I strayed away from posting them. The class I’m taking has forced me ( in a good way) to write poems/lines/phrases again. I’m happy that I’m writing again, and I’ve noticed that my word choices and the poems themselves have changed. I’ll try to post the ones I do for class, but here is one that I wrote outside of it. I might use this is workshop, but I don’t know. I try not to devalue my poetry and I treat it as separate from myself. I hope you enjoy this short one.

SOTW #92

SOTW #92

Hello my friends. Its been a busy past two weeks, full of school and work that I almost have no energy to do much! Yes, that is the ugly truth. For a bit I forgot about the blog. If I were to do all the things I wanted to do, I wouldn’t have a moments rest to do absolutely nothing. So…I resorted to listening to really slow and chill music. Music that makes me happy and calm in the chaos I feel in my mind. So here are some of the songs I’ve been listening too. Hope you enjoy.

Things I Hope To Do By The End of The Year

Things I Hope To Do By The End of The Year

Here is a little evaluation time. I remembered that I has some goals for the summer and some I did and didn’t do. So, I decided to compile a list here and also in physical form in a journal. These lists won’t be far fetched, just some goals and fun things I want to do. I feel like everyone should keep a list like this; so on a boring old day you might have something to do. Also, we’re at a half point in the year, I have to get some things done while I can.

Now, some of these things may cost money and others won’t. It really depends on the situation and task at hand. Now, let’s get to the list.

Books I’ve Been Reading

Hello! I know that the start of a week should be a new songs of the week, but I’m little behind! So today I wanted to share with you some books I’ve been reading. The summer usually promises time of reading and relaxing, and sadly I did not read as much as I wanted but I still wanted to share.

SOTW #89

Hey guys, I’m back…

from a few weeks of traveling and listening to music throughout the way. I’m excited to be back and I hope you’ve checked out my Lengths To Body Love article, a new series I wanted to start. Now, on to the Songs Of The Week. There’s nothing too new here but I hope you enjoy the songs I’ve been playing over and over.

High by The Cure

I’ve fallen in love with this song all over again. I think what makes me go gaga is the lyrics. They’re so playful and sweet and as Continue reading “SOTW #89”

Here Comes The Cowboy – Mac Demarco Album Review

Here Comes The Cowboy – Mac Demarco Album Review

Mac Demarco is currently out with a new album called Here Comes The Cowboy, a 13 track collection of songs that do not fall to audiences expectations. At first listen there is confusion, uncertainty, and eventual skips to the end. However, this albums does have moments of shine and solitude, this work is definitely a personal and unapologetic view into Demarco’s diary and solitude. This album focuses on what Continue reading “Here Comes The Cowboy – Mac Demarco Album Review”
