Six Feet of Silence

I buried my love in disbelief.

Self-Deluding with calm conviction,

Calling all cruel jests and falsehoods.

A shattered voice cracked my sanity in half.

 

I buried my love in fire.

His bones reduced to ash, carefully capped,

Handed to his mother in black.

She held the world in her arms then.

 

I buried my love in the earth.

Scattered to the seven winds among

Dappled green forest grass teeming with life.

Now, filled with death.

 

I buried my love in the ocean.

A river poured from my soul, out my door,

Salty, hot, and unceasing.

It mingled with the sea.

 

I buried my love in silence.

I made not a sound save the soft

Scuff of my boots in passing.

My heart froze in the bitter chill.

 

I buried my love in my mind.

Handling treasured memories with care,

Binding them tightly to my frozen heart.

I promised I would never forget him.

 

He smiled.

 

Fires rage.

Winds blow. 

Trees grow. 

Oceans roar. 

Hearts sing 

and all is forgiven

I find a whole world of

I find a whole world of experiences in each chanbered stanza.

And each become multi-fasceted whilst ripping through this space.

I find this to be not only brilliant in an artistic hue,

but also in a personal and meaningful one.

So much so, that I have submitted to the PP monthly favourites list.

Moved by this, well done!

I got a new job delivering

I got a new job delivering beer. It's hard work but I'm loving it, better hours and pay. I'm taking a hiatus from writing anything trying to clear my head I guess. Also I've been dreaming of moving to Washington, I think I'm going to really try and do it. How are you? Hope you're corner of the world is treating you alright. :)

The land of Rain

Washington is fantastic. I'm from Oregon myself. Be warned, the residents of said states lie about how much it rains. They lie about the quantity and the regularity. Honestly, it's more of an attempt to scare away outsiders by filling them with visions of drowning where they stand. But there is a lot of rain. It's beautiful up there though. =) I've been...well. I found out some rather disturbing things about my family recently, and am cutting contact with most of them as a result. Staying in touch with those who matter though.
