first poem in a long time (by the way my computer's broken) [Dec. 19th, 2007|10:11 pm]
madbibliomancer
I'll shoot you in the face if you crawl up out of the shower drain again
but I hope sincerely that that doesn't mean we can't remain good friends
my hair is wet, your hopes are hung
like shadows stapled to the sun
your ears are pierced by porcupines, neither clinging nor too shy,
that stab my flesh and cut the sky
like there is rain left to be wrung
from the clouds shielding that sad sun
were I a king or a spy or someone fit to say goodbye
I'd never flinch and never lie, no matter how you shift and sigh
I'd shove you down the stairs and then
you'd fly or I'd shove you down again

The key is still MIA, I mad sure the windows were locked and turned everything off though. I mentioned it to Mom, I'll keep an eye out for it.

Hey Pat, I think I beat you on the reading section of the SATs, 770. Math brought me down, but Mom's still pleased. 10 out of twelve on the writing section, and something lower on the math. Good thing I'm not harboring a secret dream to become a math major.

Just finished hanging out with Brandon. It's probably the last time I'll see him for a while so I'm feeling sad. I'm happy for him though.

I agreed. There isn't a way to back out now short of a death in the family.

kind of hyperventilating [Sep. 30th, 2007|08:35 pm]

I got asked to be assistant stage manager. I'm terrified of responsibility in it's many forms. I'm the logical choice and can't think of a way to wuss out without feeling like a wuss. What to do.

So it seems like I'll be getting my community service hours working at the public library, unless something goes wrong. It could be worse, I spend a few hours there most days anyway.

So incredibly bored. Cells collapsing from... extreme...boredom.

feeling stupid and sentimental [Sep. 5th, 2007|08:40 pm]

I think the truth of someone is revealed in what they create, and sometimes I think that that understanding, between artist and observer is the only kind available to us in a world of different worlds and subjectivity and walls of self.
That's why I care so much about what I create, why it invariably falls short of my hopes, so far at least.
I want to be worth understanding, and if there's anything true or beautiful in me, left there by accident maybe, I want to rip it out and concentrate it down into paint and words and hold it out to the world as a present.
This is why if anyone ever asked me I'd tell them that I loved my favorite writers like brothers, or friends, or lovers if I had ever had any. The people I've come closest to understanding, generations away. The people who understood me, although we've never met and gave it to me as a present wrapped up in their own genius.

Urgh, this is why I shouldn't let myself talk. I'm such a cliche.
