can we talk about how no sleep by boy is the most kent parson song i have ever heard?

I’m driving home from your house
fireworks underneath my skin
Left a kiss on the mirror
And a cup in the sink
I knocked on wood in the afternoon
And you let me in
And now I’m driving home from your house
Something big’s about to begin
[…]
No sleep, no sleep for the dreamer
Can’t break the fever
No cure for the feeling
No sleep, no sleep for the dreamer
Wide-eyed believer
Counting stars on the ceiling
No sleep, no sleep
Replay, repeat
Sweetest fatigue
No sleep

like just… the hopeless LongingTM even as he’s literally drIVING AWAY FROM JACK’S HOUSE, the fireworks imagery, kent being an insomniac, rePEATING THINGS OVER AND OVER AGAIN because he does not know how to escape his unhealthy patterns, please. oh god. help. i am so sad.

You know. For someone who honestly isn’t that interested in the contents of smut and NSFW content, as a whole… I follow quite a few NSFW creators…

I dunno man their work is just so damn pretty and well-made. Have you seen the things people can make/draw/write? That stuff is BEAUTIFUL, like holy hell. That’s some A+ content right there and they’re just… making it for the sake of making/sharing it. And I respect the HELL out of those levels of dedication.

You can tell a lot of love and thought and time goes into those sorts of pieces.

Not to say there isn’t a lot of love or thought put into SFW pieces, but… I dunno. Maybe I’m just weird *laughs*

Metaphysics of Morning (Reasons for Watching the Sky #12)

Summer morning.
Recrossing the borderline from the afterlife, 
the dreamer is expelled from sleep, the dream lost.
I am a dream’s shadow,
heavy with transition, jagged from sleep.
Light gathers me from every room I have ever slept in
onto the shrinking island of the bed.


Someone cues the poetry. Unquiet lines.
The past was worse than you thought,
voices say.  Your life is a weighted skin.
Stop swimming against the tide of loss.
Sink.


Yet gloom is porous.
From the sky’s cracked mosaic,
Daybreak seeps in.
The light reassembles familiar objects,
which replace mere longing in ordinary darkness.


The things of the world resist but return
to radiance, resume the work of existing.
Who the hell wants to do day labor?
But it’s my shift. Summon the coffee.
The world yawns before me.
And I am, therefore (I think).
