    dotsJournal: why stay here?dots
    Mood: Frustrated

    This site is not what it used to be. I remember a day when I would post a writing and it would have multiple comments on it by the end of the week. Users left compliments, criticism, advice, or even just a poem of their own that was inspired by my poem.

    And that would be commonplace for everyone's poetry.
    It really helped my writing, as there were talented poets giving me constructive criticism.

    I try to stay as giving as I was in those days, and read through all of the poetry and give my thoughts and critique. But it has become tiresome because that effort is not reciprocated, and sometimes not even acknowledged with a simple "Thank you for your thoughts on my poem".

    I want to say that there are some of you who still have that old spirit, but there are less and less of you.

    I grow weary of being here, because it feels like I might as well be keeping these writings in a journal. I would get the same amount of conversation. And the best part is that this "Journal" will also go unread.

    After 7 years it is hard for me to let go of this old website. I'm not quite ready to do so, but I'm being thrown in that direction.

    Mood: The Usual

    there we sat, connecting stars
    there we were,embellishing their stories
    sealing their legacies against our fate.

    Someone tore an angel from her wings
    she winces as it stings; composed herself to sing

    and as she plays her chords the mood begins to change,
    the words she used to write now seem to sound so strange

    you are the taste of stale gum and spit underlying the desire to touch

    like a sitcom in the background of intimate moments calling attention to the bed

    Another silly love poem

    light-headed and drifting away
    impulsive elation
    now my pulse is racing
    to the beat of another overdose victim
    ..and then it stops
    Not like this.

    It was the twitching.
    The twitching that kept you alive
    throughout the night
    and helped me find your pulse
    when I couldn't find your heart
    not like this

    Mood: The Usual

    Some flowers never bloom
    through refusal or forgetfulness,
    they never open up

    children look upon them peculiarly
    pulling the skin back to see the petals inside
    wondering why it just won't blossom

    and throughout its budded days
    not a single flower
    not the most vibrant rose
    or brightest daisy
    is more beautiful than their defiance.

    so hang in there, bud

    you call me a "great guy" like you're running some sort of existential dating service

    here I am looking for Cinderella, while you're willing to cram your feet.

    in perpetual states of frivolity
    there is no dichotomy to judge
    other than you seem sad
    when you're not high.
    I suppose that you always were
    when we would laugh, and appreciate the little things
    (flowers that forgot to bloom. clouds that refused to disappear.)
    and you showed them how far you could bend without breaking.
    I can feel the sunlight hit your eyes
    as you show your first signs of displeasure-
    in a long time-
    it's been a while
    since you fell asleep on me.

    In our case, we're still trapped in December. Forever. And yet my skin still shudders in the cold.

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
