I'm Tired.
I want to go to sleep but I feel too alert like my brain is full of clustered thoughts all wanting to be heard. My body starts itching. My eyes grow weary but it doesn't matter because my brain is still alert. I could try to lay down but it would be a waste of time. I will just writhe with my eyes closed, the lights off, the sounds from outside my room drilling into my brain as it goes over the events of the day. The doubts. The ideas. The regrets of my past - the future regrets I'm sure to make. I would drink tea, but it makes me feel ill before bed. I think it's the milk. I think it's the diluted caffeine. Today I felt sick. I always feel sick. I never feel sick. The latter is a lie. Food filled with processed ingredients, dairy that's been tampered with til it's not dairy anymore but a dairy flavoured substitute. Made me sick today. I went to work anyway. I'm tired. I work late. It takes me time to unwind. So much lethargy. So much apathy. I hate that word. It feels full of fakeness

The Lady and the Painter
There once was a Lizard from Paris named Hugo. One day Hugo decided that he would make the grandest painting of the duchess of Squirmingtire, which was a provincial estate only 2 miles from Hugo's lofty studio. So he gathered his kit and headed off on his bike, down the winding streets of Paris to the outskirts into Squirmingtire. He skidded to a halt outside a lavish building, it had a very gaudy feeling to it, that reminded Hugo of the nobles of old.
Gathering his wits, he pushed past the rusted iron gate up the chiseled steps to the landing. Before he could knock the door creaked open to just reveal a tiny pair of eyes in the narrow slit between door and jam. Pausing a moment Hugo went to speak, but before he could utter a syllable, the eyes disappeared and left him standing there a good minute or two. Scuffing his feet on the ground, eyes swivelling in his head, he decided he had waited long enough and rang the doorbell. A loud clammer was heard from inside the manor, then a rake l

Modern Cannibal
She had the taste for sexual morbidity
The stains of red trace her ruby lips
Another bite sinking teeth in slowly
Seething life seeps through cracked flesh
A taste she cannot do without
Fingers wet from red sticky meat
Dripping on the white carpet floor
Stains form a myriad of Rorschach tests
What is it she sees?
She slips her finger in her mouth
A tormented gale on the curtains of her soul
She controls yet craves for disorder
Contradiction wrapped in death's hard wings
An unsolvable problem
Feasting alone, she sings.

Dark in the sky
Fireflies light
Wings upon high
Into the night
Stars're close
Touched and died
Fire is froze'd
Upon the tide
Get thee wings
O' shining backs
Plucked pain sting
It's heart gone black
Rain and ash
All that remains
My heart a gash
How it pains

Cold Tea
Tea sits untouched. The murky surface marred by the separation of fluids. Thin veils of milk coalesce with the water and tan beverage. Do I desire cold tea? Does anyone? The cup is cold to the touch as I lift it to my lips, sipping the tart flavor that was once rich. Bitterly I lower the cup to the bench beside me. Better to pour it out, I think to myself. Like all of life's consequences, you leave something too long and it will go sour. Decisions that can't be made in the heat of the moment. You allow your mind to cool, so that you may analyze the situation coolly. Better to act on impulse at times. Take the plunge while the water is still hot, while the feeling is still fresh in your fingertips. The veins filled with warm sensations as the tips brush against the side of the steaming cup. A flavorsome and enriching experience. Life is meant for living, like a nice hot cup of tea. Do not be circumspect too much of the time, or you risk ruining your life with precaution after precaution

Another art block is broken, but it always takes time to really get into a progressive state of art making. Its difficult because I hadn't used this website in such a long time. At the urging of a friend I am back though and I hope to show you some things that I have done soon. Thank you to the people who have stuck by me during this creative drought.
