I'm gonna stop taking everything so serious after I've realized that life is doing a good job of reminding me how short it is and how I should be enjoying it instead of moping around under a dark cloud wishing people would read my poetry and tell me how I'm the next Hemingway. 

Now I'm going to do what I always do and contradict myself. You see, I want to practice my drawing and do some serious art and write for more serious work, trying my best to get published. I want to get myself out there, known, acknowledged for doing something honest, effective, perhaps even powerful. Right now, I'm trying to write something that could be chosen to get published in a scholarly peer-reviewed journal. Which is not the way I imagined my first publication but if I can make it there, things could only go up from there. Sometimes, being an unknown makes everything feel pointless. I'm tired of things being pointless, things are going to be more purposeful from this point forward. 
~Southern Invitation~





I can't let go of you, my guilt tears me up inside,
and when you touch me, it sparks a fire beneath my skin,
it's always only been in my head making feel like I've wasted my best years,

When I kiss your tears, sadness and frustration taste different than joy,
for a moment I thought it would be easy, but it only got harder,
I want you with me in the middle of these paths I can't choose between,

I'll say I'm sick and keep you here longer than you should be,
I'm afraid you'll get sick of me, that when I call for you you won't come,
why should I be sorry for wanting your hands, your eyes, and your mouth?

We'll breathe a little easier once we get this off our chests,
once I admit to myself how wrong it is to keep you here under falsehoods,
will you hang up without saying goodbye? Will you invite me back into your bed?

You have a thick skin calloused from years of being taken advantage of this way,
what I told people had been the thing that drove you off but I'm hoping you get this message,
your unquestionable masculine beauty roaming freely,

I'm letting go of you now, always remember the good but never deny the bad,
time is slipping away too quickly to not invite the possibility,
that "goodbye" is not the same as "never again" please invite me back when you're ready.

I've made a superhero. Does anyone wanna make a comic with me? 
~Star Light~






The light from a dead star,
it reaches us after it's long gone,
and we wish we had known about it sooner,

There is a man who lives on the moon,
we just assumed that he was lonely,
but he was in love with the view,

There's no sense in crying,
as falling tears streak my face,
an abundance of falling stars streak the sky,

It takes real love to make someone feel humble,
I would be happy knowing that he closed his eyes singing,
my favorite line from that song,

Here the structure falls apart,
as time goes on,
I wonder if my compliments can reach him wherever he is,

This light has traveled far,
I believe it was just for me,
I wish I had looked up before it was gone.

This is for David Bowie, I hope my compliments reach you wherever you are.

You comforted me in times I needed an uplifting voice. You taught me how important being myself is to my growth as a person and you showed me that what I look like doesn't matter as long as I enjoy every day as it comes. You lived your life well and hard and with a lot of love and admiration in it and all your fans are going to miss you. I'm going to miss you. Thank you, David Bowie.
