Life’s Colorful Embrace and Transformation

I want to go swimming in a sea of colors,

allowing it to fully take hold of me for one of the most immersive artistic experiences I can imagine.

The reds would overtake my blood and heart,

the oranges would bleed into my ears,

the yellows would seep into my bones,

the greens would fuse into my hair,

the blues would overtake my eyes,

and the violets would cover my skin.

As I become one with art,

it would wrap itself around me.

I’d be lost and found in a fully immersive experience.

One that could only be compared to dying and living at the same time,

that second between excitement and fear,

the spark of joy felt as a kid,

and being in heaven and hell itself

in the presence of all that is good and all that is evil

and understanding that we are one in the same.

What I feel

I wish I knew exactly how to describe how I am feeling

There is happiness, there is grief

There is joy, yet there is sorrow

I’m not sure how to put it into words

I feel like I should be able to just express

but I can’t

The words get lost in a jumbled mess,

get repainted, rehashed

and just like that it’s something indescribable

What do I feel?

Is this pain or ecstasy

Is confusion causing this block in my mind

that I can’t put my finger on what the feeling is

I know there is joy, acceptance, and feelings there

I just can’t figure out how these others work in a whole

thoughts are running around in my head

and won’t stop for now

Maybe it’s fear

I might fear the worst

I think that I fear that what I feel is fake

Is the world real

Not the actual world but mine

There are all these people, but are they friends

and those I know are friends, are they close?

Do I feel that emotionally connected

that I think I won’t be able to live without them

I wish I could figure out how to put these feelings away

and just trust that my life is going to be ok.

that this is real and that life is right

But with the way things went a while ago

I can’t help but not trust anything…

Warm Regards from The Idiotic Idiosyncrasies

•February 20, 2013 • 1 Comment

I'm Significant Banner

I’m not doing so well.

The exterior of myself is fake.

But how could anyone see that?

I’m “loving life”, “jovial”, “fantastic”.

But there are only so many positive ways I view myself.

All the rest are negative.

I’m a failure in my eyes.

There are so many things I have been unsuccessful in my life.

No car, no job, barely making ends meet.

Friendzoned and friendzoning.

Pushing away my friends and pulling closer my enemies.

Running away from the truth and running towards the lies.

And now here is where I am: facing that bottle and sweet.

Another night alone, another night with no friends.

And what am I faced with? A high and buzz.

So send me those regards, those I’m sorry’s and I’m here’s.

And let me feel like I’m loved for a second through words.

So that way when I get back to it,

I have that little more glimmer of hope so that the devil won’t get me again.

But then again, where am I going?

Why does the devil make his presence known but I have to search for God.

And now what am I going to do?

Send those warm regards? I’ll ignore them.

This party is meant for one, but yet two others are present.

and which of the two am I supposed to understand and know and love.

I’m confused and afraid and fearing the idiotic idiosyncrasy of my life…

The Tree On The Hill

‘Twas up on that hill, by the lone tree

that I saw you there in all of your beauty.

But life moved on, and you left me there,

my heart in my hand, my blood running bare.

I stood at the tree on top of the hill,

you visited me rarely, but there I stood still.

Years past and resentment towards you grew.

within me I found a person I never knew.

I did not like the one that I found.

With regret, in that person I did drown.

On top of that hill, I finally left the tree.

I needed a time to finally be free.

But every now and then,

to the hill I go again,

in hopes that I might find,

you and a way to be saved

from the person in my mind.
