A weird class about the sociological benefits and collaboration of a public school in a community as well as measures taken within a school to create and upkeep certain foundations for education.

I doubt they'll see my edgelord coming when we read these aloud on Thursday either. I took a generic template and went "here have some personal and kinda dark sh-t about my life."

Look deep into my eyes, my love, and repeat after me;
Our love was always meant to last an eternity.
If you should stop time, I should stay beside
to stop it with you, where chemical fumes collide.

Transform each and every drop of blood in our veins
into the promise of love that would still keep us awake,
Hold me by the hand as we move on together,
I am yours, for the rest of forever.

That...was honestly painful for me to read. I don't know what it is about love like that, but I find myself drawing away from it. I guess one bad apple can easily spoil those around it, even of the more precious variety. Yet I want so badly for your words to ring with more truth than my experiences.

It was supposed to be bittersweet, but looking at it now, I'm not sure I got that across the way I wanted. For similar reasons, I don't think I'd be able to write purely about love unless it was from an outsider's perspective or have some darker undercurrent going for it.

If you scroll around this thread long enough and you'll find some of my love poetry, written when I was inspired by the feeling. I wonder what you'd think of my brand of them.

I read some, to me they really seem like they'd work well as song lyrics the way they flow. Material for an upcoming Mahlua band!

Anyway, looking at them as a whole, it's a pretty cool portrayal of the general rollercoaster that is love. While I miss it, at the same time I really don't.

The local kava bar had an open mic night, and after hearing some of the poets, I started writing something of my own and somehow went up and presented mine. I can't recreate exactly how it went while I was up there since I was actually shaking pretty badly at the mic, but I tried for you guys:

"Loss"

Then I wound up writing another one that I didn't get a chance to share, but I'll drop that one here for you guys as well.

"Sympathy"

Mind you that these are passionate and volume might be an issue, and they may also give you the feels.

Metaphorical title

I saw a brother of thousands fall.
It will be the first of many this season.
They were brown, red, orange, and yellow.

“Don’t worry, I’ll clean it up” said my brother
I replied “just leave them there, don’t bother”


The old die for the next in line, except these.
They will be collected and bagged and eventually dumped.
Their journey endied,  but they would not be connected to their own.
However, I will change that.

My neighbor hired a man to clean their yard.
The following spring he will return to bring  back what he took.
It’s funny that they will pay twice for nothing.
