death and writing?

some people need to just die

they need to just go away,

and never come back- any day

but it takes restraint not to kill

and not to turn them into bloated corpses

for an innocent to find…

at least that is what the table behind me would say…

they pretend not to notice me

and i do my best to ignore them

although, there are times in which a nicely placed blade

or a few bullets to the head,

could assure my safety, and secure their deaths.

i wonder if these are the thoughts that every writer of death must have

in order to find peace among the words and their literary goals

who really knows.

I love this piece! I recently deactivated my facebook and you would’ve thought the world had ended! My friends responded with the following: WHY?! Are you okay? Is everything fine? How are you doing? You know you can step away from it, and then come back? You know you can delete people from it? Is there something wrong?

I have to admit I felt insulted, like I had to be of unsound mind to de-clutter my life with busy, self important talk which I find a lot on facebook. I think facebook has fallen into the idea of busy.

To be honest, I grew sick of how facebook seem to be more of an outlet for bragging, than about sharing and keeping in touch with others. Keeping in touch turned into- well, I “liked” your status- didn’t I? Or, it became more of- well, I follow you- that’s maintaining a friendship, right?! While I can see those simple forms of contact may be for the masses, it is not the meaningful form of communication my brain appreciates. I may as well go to a bar on a Friday night…

Sorry for the rant a bit there- just trying not to stay THAT busy! We are all busy and need to learn how to make time more meaningful in our everyday comings and goings.

It has been awhile… been on assignment with one job. It ends soon, so the game is afoot for something more permanent and with more reward.

I guess I committed a sin by deactivating my facebook, because from the way people reacted to my decision, one would think I cheated on my husband and had abandoned my children- I have neither mind you…

So, with that small victory, I am free to kill time by writing, and NOT reading a friend’s political littering, religious badgering, or how someone leads an awesome life & how life is good.

Now I can cheer on others like the dickens, but there are times I would resd my facebook and think- really? Oh come on already! We all get it- YOU lead a better life than I do- and have done better, where I have failed.

Nevertheless, am happy to be rid of the facebook monkey, though it take some getting some figuring out.

i think it funny that we, as a “society,”

confuse passion for anger

and empathy for weakness;

that strong opinions mean one must be wielding a sword in one hand

and ill- thought in the other, is as ridiculous as the consumer whore-ism

and dumb bimbos- male and female, we toss our dollars and our children at.

better yet, tears of joy or sorrow, tears at all- have now become the unholy mark of those we must scoff at and belittle

“obviously” these meager souls have no sense of their own given the emotions shown.

so i guess that’s why we, in our absentee caring, prefer to dumb down a nation than to listen and share in the human condition.

my heart exploded inside

when you took that ride.

pieces of you scattered

on an asphalt blanket.

blood and bone

you wouldn’t come home.

i take comfort inside,

you’re a diamond

in the night’s sky.

3 wishes

i sat by the pond to watch the fish swim

but found myself within a sun puddle

and thinking of them

i wished them death

i wished them luck

i wish i didn’t give a fuck

i made some slippers out of seashells

so shards of beauty would be left in my wake

but all i saw were my shattered dreams

and broken hope

— and then i awoke to find

my thoughts scattered about my room

in journals and frozen on my computer
