unhinged you aren't gonna love me
like i love you
that is almost always
immediately apparent
and i choke on my tongue
cause i can't get it to come out right
cut and run
the first few minutes
that i feel alive again
gasping but finally breathing
i hold you in
and choke on my tongue
would you run away
you say you love me
cut and run
i guess i feel just a little too crazy
to let it out on you
and my skin itches
with what i need to say
cause that if anything
has made them turn away
so i
cut and run
i want to
but i can't dial the phone
distended echoes
yeah, i know how this goes
one last gasping breath
turned to silence
the sting and bleed of some self_inflicted violence
so i
cut and run

stork daddy my advice johnny? just decide whether to die or live, they're both fine options, honorable. but don't ride the fence, and half commit to everything. you do things that way and you're just bringing your own doubt into everyone else's life. it's like, the people who want to live will resent your half destructiveness, the allure your vibrant living has that brings them into that destruction. and the people who don't want to live, they'll be angry for you confusing them, convincing them to stick with it, when you have no faith yourself. 040424

unhinged blather has always been good for unsolicited advice, my mouth echoes hypocritically. do you think the people i love know anything about how i want to die? most of them, most of the time, yeah, they know nothing. blather has all my secrets. i've been trying to stay alive. yeah, if it was such a simple choice for me, the decision would already be made.

today the sky is blue with white puffy clouds and it's just cool enough for a sweater and the dogwood is in bloom. and last week probably the trees that line the walk up to cafaro house that flower in the spring, yeah, they were probably raining their petals right on down. and every year i walked that walk to the door where i lived, and the petals fell on my skin like silk. it was a dream come true the day it rained petals.

how does someone live content that isn't content to be alone? to many, it screams excuses, weak, crutch, but my heart isn't full on it's own. but i guess i've made the choice to live hoping that i won't always be empty. but living proves that fallacy, as hope once again proves to be the nastiest four letter word in my vocabulary.

let me spell it out for you. if i didn't express my thoughts of distress, i'd be even more of a withered mess. my brain is rhyming today. that's the first sign of disease. i don't ask anyone to listen to me. but sometimes, i can't go silent. but sometimes, i wish just one person would listen to me. everyday that passes means that that is one less day they will be there when i go home. moving out west to the coast and beyond, limiting my reasons to go back east.

and i wonder how they're getting along without me. if they ever stop to think, just one passing thought about me. yes, i cry, whine, complain about things that i could very well change, but i guess i'm just co-dependent. no; i know i'm just co-dependent. i tried to do drugs again; that just makes it worse. i don't know when i'll find love again; that just makes it worse. i'm glad there are people that have the strength to be on their own. but that's not me. and i'm not sure if that's a choice i made or just the way i was born.

Iraqis Hail Falluja 'Victory'...

22 minutes ago

Cries of "victory over the Americans" echoed from minarets and guerrilla gunmen celebrated in the streets under the green banner of Islam and Saddam-era Iraqi flags. Thousands who had fled a month of heavy fighting streamed back to their homes after U.S. Marines pulled back from their siege positions.

31 minutes ago

Pictures can drive public opinion and policy: the statue of Saddam Hussein toppling in Baghdad, President Bush standing on an aircraft carrier in front of a "mission accomplished" sign, the charred bodies of four contractors who had driven into disaster.


Historians don't discount the cumulative impact of nightly news reports on American deaths in turning many Americans against the Vietnam War.


A ban on media coverage of coffins arriving from Iraq also shows the government's awareness of the potency of images.

Bremer: U.S. Will Leave Iraq if Requested

...
i BAGHDAD, Iraq - The U.S. governor of Iraqi told regional officials Friday that the United States would leave Iraq (news - web sites) if requested to do so by the new Iraqi government although he thinks such a move is unlikely.

L. Paul Bremer told a delegation from Iraq's Diyala province that American forces would not stay where they were unwelcome.


"If the provisional government asks us to leave we will leave," Bremer said, referring to an Iraqi administration due to take power June 30. "I don't think that will happen, but obviously we don't stay in countries where we're not welcome."

i don't take words at face value. platitudes are meaningless to me. love isn't just a word. saying you're sorry doesn't mean anything until you act on it. and maybe if you are so sorry, you shouldn't have done it in the first place. i don't fuck around with peoples' hearts. i wish i could say the same for pretty much everyone i know.

Today i: woke up in the arms of the person i've been madly in love with for nearly a decade, went into a job that pays way more than the already fun work is actually worth, and had two mimosas at lunch with the art director as he tried to convince me to come back full time. Part of me can't forget what made me leave in the first place, but part of me wants to hold onto the sweetness as long as it lasts.
