She did something stupid. 

 

I know,           

I can call it stupid because I’ve done it. 

Too often. 

 

But why did she have to as well? 

 

Poe washes over me. 

She is the grain of sand in my hand. 

All my friends,              then,

all the world. 

I want nothing more than to hold them in my grasp. 

Protect them from the waves. 

 

Oh Gd can I not save one from the pitiless wave? 

 

They fall,

the tighter I clasp the faster they fall. 

 

One,

two,

a thousand,

millions,

billions. 

 

All the people in the world who I am too inept to protect.

 

Oh Gd I would die on the cross to prevent this. 

 

Not to save them from sin.

 

No,      if you would save them from mistakes they don’t need to make. 

 

Mistakes I already made. 

 

The experiences in life who’s only imparted wisdom -

is that they shouldn’t have been done in the first place. 

Or worse, that they shouldn’t have happened, but will probably occur

again,

    and again. 

A cycle of self inflicted pain. 

 

Put that on my shoulders. 

 

Just stop my world from hurting.

The turtle following me would be funny,
Funny if it weren't gaining.

I wonder if it is a tortoise.

Doesn't matter,
I'm not slowing down to check.

You know, writing poetry and driving at 80+MPH is harder than it looks...

For those we leave behindCollapse )

Tonight I lament,
A tear for truth.

Who does not cry that knows,
Love is not enough.

Why did you leave?Collapse )

If even you were in my life a day,
Without you I would have never been complete.

The world isn't always pretty, and being pretty isn't always best in the world.

I am a coward and I know it, each praise for my action... just pushes my shame from inaction to haunt me more.

Good is not "good enough", some is more than none, but some can't repair the world... maybe all can't either, but I cry for day when I'm enough of a human to find out.

Now the poem:
the truth about CharlieCollapse )

Went off to a retreat a while back. Really, it is the road trip there and back that I remember best. But while I was there, we had a poetry group.

who cares?Collapse )

3:39 am - The Coffee Story

philogeon
Of course it seems only fair that my first post be for The Coffee Story... Thus:
*err... please don't expect it to be in any way edited*

Chapter 1Collapse )

This is the first post, because it was the first time I wrote just to write. I did it after reading http://plagiarist.com/poetry/87/

3:23 am - This above all.

philogeon
I've had a journal online for a while now. Mostly it has been about what I read. So it seemed only fair that now I start a community for what I write. Won't claim it is good, and I'll try not to claim it is bad. Don't really mind what you claim either. But if you'd like to post what you've written as well, then please do. Please put anything more than a few lines behind a lj-cut so I don't have to hurt you when I read my friends page.
