I wouldn't like to put myself 'out there' with my thoughts, as you are doing; I would rather write a private journal. Can I ask what it is you like about expressing yourself this way? You say that when you did it on FaceBook no one seemed to take any notice.

Life is all too much ............................................. and not enough.

It is only when you form your question precisely and accurately that you receive the true answer.

On facebook: I was invited to a group by a poet fellow from Australia, in which there were many members of another poetry group that I was also apart of. The group was called "Semi-Coherent Ramblings of Sleep Deprivation". The originator was very active and the other members had few posts but mostly continued to share on the other groups that were more popular and not that one. I kind of got addicted to it and then originator of the group disappeared into the shadows with his new girlfriend and it was then only me.

I  never thought about "why" I liked it. I will have to ponder that. But, I will say - I like the 'rambling' setting, random free flow thought, I find it intriguing. I think this format encourages experiential writing, poetry, new vocabulary words, current study topics, story pieces, randomness, inspiration, theory, the list is really endless. Its like a smorgasbord, a bathroom reader, gumbo... My best way to explain why I like it is because  - the way my brain is constructed I am drawn to this activity, as someone would be drawn to reading the paper or doing crossword puzzles... *shrugs*. I am hopeful that perhaps maybe two or three others will join me (an entry or two from time to time - or all the time if they get hooked like I did) and add their own flare :)


PEACE and thanks for the question

I am reminded of your face
in the round eyes I see
blinking around the city
and in the certain curves
of sideways noses
that protrude just so
from puffy slopes

regardless
of what you hide behind
or what your strange cries
sound like
in the middle of the night
I still see you

all water
has been a storm
and every light
takes a speckled form

change is just the same

what is space between us
when I am locked
into your molecules
and what is time
but the upward wave
that pulls our cores
back to shore

The roar in my belly
is of a satisfied lioness.
I have eaten the animal
of Quivering Fear
and left it in the grass.

**

Low in the lonely room
he held out his eyes

the curves of his resting place
sloped - uncomfortably down
he made a landing for my elbow

"Take this cup."
gurgled up from the hole
that sucked for attention
his words dampened his lips
with blood and drool

he had pulled his own tooth
out by the root

I knew from the little men's plastic emotions
his clanging had made mountains
and with stolen matches
he would melt their faces away
as soon as I turned from the room

**

I breathe through the spaces in my ribcage
hoping to push them past their current rasp
but I find they still bend inward.
I can only lend a tear to your tousled mass.

He lurks on the side door
long and lean
but it is only an illusion
you see he stands
purposed afront the charging beam
acting to potential

as if the wind were blowing
as if he had a sword

no matter how his garment swayed
his lips were swung one way
his overall face was quite disgruntled

Do you ever chat? Do you think we could perhaps meet. I have not read your writings, or listened to your lectures, maybe I should do that correct?

Well... I got your info after reading the "hat man and shadow people" thread on *** website. OMG I just joined this website and these shadow people/animals/demons/hatman experiences have been haunting me or should I say "presently on my mind intensely" for several years. I just want to say that it is a relief and utter blessing to get the testimony that I've received. There are a multitude of accounts of other witnesses. I am so pleased that you have come face to face with the Lord, although I have not yet listened to your testimonies. I pray a blessing upon both of us tonight, truly just thanking the Lord, for such a mighty blessing to be under the anointing and assured in His plan.

I have not seen the Lord face to face, but I have received "the pouring of the oil" and the "holy ghost" through singing and other possessions of my body through the Lord!

Anyway, I will further investigate and read your work etc.. I know that you may be busy in the Lord, but I want to tell you that I think that I am in some sort of transition. I feel that I should become more academic, and that I should go through a new test, just as I did when I initially received my "salvation". There is so much in the heavenly realms that I am drawn to and want to advance in. I just want to figure it all out. Thank you for entertaining me and I'm glad to meet you, although we have never spoke.

I like the way the Lord works. Just a small word can get a person thinking you know what I mean...

Peace be blessed TTYS

Opposing sides collide.
In the battlefield they die -
together, combine their splinters.
A waft of cumulated angst
grafts a bloom of new fragrance.

I tell you to be careful, so that you yourself would not be mesmerized by such a thing and therefore be put into a trance, but that you would remember it is a tool, to be used by you.. and only you. She was referring to the encapsulated _______. The _______ within the stone was dead and so was he. I would think that with her magic she could have made it a living thing. I knew she could read my mind but still I concealed my emotions.  I was grieved that she would remind me of him, and ask me to hold on to something unliving. I let the sadness burn behind my eyes only, it did not well up or spill down my face. My lips were tense so not to quiver. I also rejected the thought that with her powers she could have prevented all of this from happening in the first place. I criticized her, silently of course. She could have taken up the whole island, brought it to the sky. Behind her darkness broke out against the blue. Silhouettes of the ancestors rose and moved around like monsters. I felt sick and suddenly wanted to lie down. _______ took me and made a bed for me, she stroked my eyes and soon I was asleep.

The mystery of the fallen bodies...

when the flowers abound in their glory
they are magnificent - taking on even mountainous hills.
In the heat of the sun, the man of the dawn has already come to them,
gathering what has withered, taking to the blade what is ashen and gray.
Working slowly and minding his own he weaves his trace in and out of the brush.
If you were to see him stooping, you would dismiss it soon for quickly too he also fades.
He is gone for a break, eating lunch with his spouse at a nearby cafe.

You see him again, wearing the same coat, but you do not recognize him as the man in the garden.

Sirens sore nightly and there is a task performed only by some.
It is not as remarkable to see a bristly bunch of daisies, hard and beyond reach of a drink,
but the body of men we remember.

In woken life wakeful thoughts,
drift endless on the tide.
In daily life dreams invade the mind,
though eyes are open wide.

But when we sleep,
our eyes are closed,
seldom are our dreams disclosed,
where we went, no one knows.

Edited to add: but I'm trying to find out.
