«O pale Ophelia! beautiful as snow!
Yes child, you died, carried off by a river!
It was the winds descending from the great mountains of Norway
That spoke to you in low voices of better freedom»

Arthur Rimbaud - Ophélie

The Fly, The Spider Web and The Spider.

I just really don’t wanna let you in.
And, I don’t want to fall in love with you.
I don’t want to be stuck here even after we break up, hoping that we’ll fall back together again.
I don’t wanna fall for you, because I don’t know how to escape that feeling.
The heart fluttering, the jealousy, the hugging, the kissing, the flirting, the blushing.
I’m always the fly, stuck in the spider web. And even though the spider is dead, I’m still having hallucinations that it’s still there, while I am struggling to escape. And it always takes forever.
Making me the only fly left.

So, no, I do not want to fall in love with you.

I found out your name 
and now I’m caught in your web.
You have my attention
and for awhile I will be stuck in your trance.
You’re a witch,
I am the victim,
your name was the spell.
I wish I could unlearn it,
I wish I could unhear it.
Because it’s constantly ringing in my head.
I’m a goner,
          for sure.

Windy Valley~風の在る場所~ (Kaze no Aru Basho)

Deep within the forest,
Is an impregnable, desolate canyon
No one knows of the entrance…

A violent wind blows fiercely,
Blocking the path from any trespassers
No one knows of the entrance…

“Uncorrupted souls, come here”
But no one can reach it
“Uncorrupted souls, return”
But no one can return

But even so the adventurers aim for it,
Running about the world
The place where wind is born, and returns to…

We who do not cast aside our civilization which ruins the earth
Where are we to return to, I wonder…?

Grey Area (Web Poem From "Grey Area," the "Othello" Poetry Project)

To create a web poem, select two or three words to be the focus of your piece and then make a word web that connects those core words to associated words. This will expand the imagery.

The elephant shirks the mouse,

The clouds hide the sun.

In that way, too, do we each

Interact with the other.

First timid and subtle,

Then outward and bold.

We keep on the fringes of extremes,

Slowly banding together

On the middle ground.

Not exact and precise like a science,

We make it up as we go along.

A muddled mix of a love

That’s never cold, cloudy or hazy.

Happy Friday!

Watching Threshold Entertainment’s Foodfight!
brings all the world a peace without compare.
Charlie Sheen dog with all his soul laid bare
reminds us all of where we’ll find the light
of truth: it’s in the brands and not in all
of those off brand, Brand X pieces of shit;
he’s brave and bold and always full of wit
and in the face of tyranny stands tall.
He’s light and life and always finds a way;
Charlie Sheen dog will always save the day.

I just realized this is only 10 lines. I fucked up so hard. but okay I got the rhyme and syllable scheme DEAD-ON for the first 8 and last 2 lines. that counts for something, right?


Train http://wp.me/s5OaLJ-train

He opened his eyes slowly. The same continuous shaking of the train as it ran on the tracks that had been rocking him to sleep had now woken him up. He looked around, there weren’t many passengers left in his car, only an old couple of women, a single father with his child and another man who was reading the newspaper and seemed to be alone. Suddenly, as he was lying back on the seat, he saw the…

Burners on a stove helped to stoke
What most people’s brains get to choke
It fed us jobs, new lives to those who sulk
all in dawn, when we woke
