Loneliness is Underrated

I look to silence for comfort as much as I look for it in my silk pillow. Loneliness is time well spent to do the things your beating chambers desire. We crave depth from others but find ourselves becoming shallow when we do. We crave kindness from strangers when we’re hating ourselves in the reflective glass on the wall.

Empaths

Protect the empaths for we are quiet seeds. I’ve finally come to see I’m one with the quiet seeds. I was pushed to be someone far away from me since extroverts seems to be the only light society likes to see. But truthfully, I am not such a seed, rather a quiet crop or tree just trying to make my way across the sea to better lands, to a better me.

You and your almond eyes. I love the way you look at me. Cool as the start of fall, cool as a sprig of mint. I feel you woven into me. Being with you is every bit as painful as necessary. But not the hurting kind. Pain like the pain I felt in my old dream of lilacs sprouting from my hands. I saw an image once of pearls integrated into a hand… I imagine that is what love feels like. Piercing but beautiful.

Cosmos

There must be something more

beyond this concrete door that is work, that is life

Rain washes me

leaving yesterday astray

I’m a cleansed soul

who’s often in the rabbit hole

Life is a rehearsal to see who gets wings in the afterlife

People think life is infinite

but it’s the short end of the string

everything feels too grand sometimes

so when I feel like I’m being stoned to death by thoughts,

and I’m as tense as a swarm of bees,

I look up from my bubble, from my little life,

 into the cosmos

Chattering Opinions

Its only the blues

But wow didn’t she give you chills

Eyes sunken and blackened looking lifeless

My glow is dim and my piano awaits for my magical fingertips

To grace its teeth once again

Its been months since I felt my spark within

My bad, I should’ve given you clues

Of my sudden sadness

It came out of nowhere

Some would say out of the blue

It lingered in my molecules

Until it surfaced and hit me hard

Kept me down on the mattress

But they say she’s such a mess

She’s objectively lazy

Must be the drinks making her hazy

But my lips never touched a glass   

Well I’m up against heavy rain clouds

That crowd any potential joy

And soak up any sun left in my soul

She’s wasting precious time with all her whines

Now she’s playing it coy refusing to explain her gloom

She’s single, so its no surprise she won’t leave her room

Really? Is that why she’s missing her calendar & all its glory

With countless important dates not involving any groom

Enter my psyche and see how you do

Will it drown out your laughter and make you turn away food?

you wanna know how I feel and uncover the truth?

push aside your cynical view and wait until it comes for you

Strong, Womanly Feelings

Strong, Womanly Feelings

You may have muscles that could lift and kill

but what you do with that is your will

What good is strength when used in vain or to cause pain

I am not like a sea of tuna

But an angelfish

If I don’t love you anymore

I will be on my way

To continue God’s journey for me but

The holy book and prayers

Are not in every female’s repertoire

And describing girls as good

Is far too lame

We are complex dynamic flames

Not angels nor perfect

As for emotions yes I’ve got a few

But so do you my fellow creation

Does strong love and openness to all

make me weak? Or are you too afraid

to accept what you don’t feel

even if it means others will heal

We are quite the same

as you strong buffoons

we’d both die in a monsoon

and fight for air in a sand dune

we are human, just more in tune.

How Beautiful it is to Let Turquoise Pearls Run Down You

Vulnerability and sensitivity make you stable

 Like those under oceans, we become distraught when denied salt water

While you with the glossy blue vision are much more stable

Your tears fall like delicate snow, and make lamb’s ears grow

In a tender state you are soft to touch

comforting like cotton cloth,

but when you’re frigid

your hands are shattered glass

your mind an abandoned home

your heart beats for war

but you’re already in the dead sea

dry & bitter like rich cocoa,

you ignore the rain

pattering on your brain and window

don’t drink your tears

no wires will be ruined,

when your face becomes a stream

we are human, crying is the beauty of our being

when one is agleam at all hours,

it’s unreachable

I can’t talk to sunshine,

for I can’t see it’s eyes

It’s a fire with unbearable wrath

Anger is futile, sensitivity it tries to decay

Its flames burn my skin

I need rain clouds to kiss my skin

With the water running down my eyes,

I’m reminded I’m alive,

 that feelings pulse through me

How necessary it is to feel the weight of the Pacific behind your view,

and how beautiful it is to let its turquoise pearls run down you.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
