erin wow
i just thought i'd take a look at the blather under my own name
and it says i'm an uberqueen with diamond toes?
i'm randomly flattered

~_~ she is kind and beautiful
but she lives in another world
she makes no sense
she kills innocently not realising the
harm she does

erin so it's disturbing.
that ~_~ blather sounded a lot like everyone i've ever pissed off.

erin you don't see the difference between a real kandinsky and a poster. even if you knew, though, you wouldn't understand why you would hang his reds and greens and sharp black lines on your wall. the colors are lost in your perception.
and, just for your information, the o'keefe print that hangs in your living room is a huge vagina disguised as a flower.

but you don't see that either.

i think maybe i see more colors than you do. maybe i understand more about beauty. to me, beauty isn't practical. it's either coincidental or extravagant, like a seashell or a couture gown not meant to be worn. of course, both types are ridiculous to you, because beauty isn't useful. it's not grey.

you think you see me as beautiful, but there is beauty in me you will never know.

erin i'm drunk and missing you
colors bleed and wipe away problems
so there's only my body that misses you here

erin A commoner once loved the fairest woman in his city, a daughter of nobility. He saw her during a new year's festival, and even though she was masked, he saw through it to beauty. Truly in love, he asked her to marry him. She laughed at his presumption. He told her he would stay outside her window every night all night, even if it took a year. She would only have to open the shutters to let him know that he won her love.

Through the spring he waited, through the summer and fall. His tears mixed with the rain, and still he waited. Every night he sat under her door silently staring. When winter came he sat in the snow, with salt lines from the tears drying on his face. He was so thin and pale that the snow didn't lose any chill from his touch. It grew colder.

Finally the next new year, the end of his year of waiting, arrived. He assumed his normal position with nothing in his heart but the dying embers of his love, and all else was blankness. The festival noises found him under her window, but he did not hear them. Night fell. Midnight soon came and the shutters swung open, and her beauty replaced the blue moonlight. He looked at her, his face softened with relief. He exhaled, turned slowly, and walked away.

Erin shes strong...yet weak
She never knows what to expect
She only likes it when its raining
She loves when guys smile
and when puppies are near
She likes to be alone
Yet needs someone always there
Shes erin...shes me

guess_bitch ...the biggest and most annoying bitch i have ever known... she refuses to go away, calling and clinging to my boyfriend. he loves me, not her but she is a psychotic bitch. i just want her to go away. she calls all the time asking him to go visit her... you would think by now she would get the fucking point... he doesn't want you around... GO THE FUCK AWAY! he spends evey day with me and his family keeps saying what a bitch erin was and how much they like me. his brother's wife said she was happy he finally has a nice girlfriend. i really love him. his mom said to me one day, "i am so thankful that he found you... you make him so happy and i thought after erin... well, you know." sometimes she makes me so angry that i don't even know what to do. i love him and he loves me... i am so happy with him and he is very happy with me. 021012

a stain in my brain

erin Nothing rhymes with my name and so it cannot be a song. Not like Julia, or Jude, Mmother Mary, or Rocky Racoon.

Erin, Erinn, Eryn, Aryn, Eire, Eriu.

One of the three gods of Ireland. A goddess who helped the settlers become a people.

Without her we might not have Patrick or Meghan, or the Boston Celts.

The first time I loved you, you were playing Blackbird. "Take these sunken eyes and learn to see." Your voice cracked so fast over the notes. They broke around me, frozen and proud.

When I first hated you the towers were falling. No one would speak but me. I kept saying, this is another. This is another. This is another Pearl Harbor, another JFK. This is falling. This is what they will ask when we are 60. This is it.

And now you're earning me three times over as a sound engineer for NPR. Your grin shines off the screen, still so cracked. Mom is dead, love is dead, my life is impacted so far into the ground, no tower of glass will ever resurrect my spirit.
