Sometimes warmth is it's own reward
Flames aren't meant to last forever
Perhaps it's best to enjoy them

It's easy to dwell on scattered ashes
And to fret about what's happened
Griping won't resurrect passion

Feelings pull in a bunch of directions
But it's remarkable to feel at all
Sparks could wake a mystery

Conclusions needn't tell the story
All good things come to an end
Treasure the fire as it burns
It's like being locked up in a room
A large room filled with clutter
Steps often result in pain
How could one dwell in such a place

Unfortunately it's often inhabited
There's a door but no windows
It wouldn't do for people to see inside
Eggshells are strewn upon the floor

You'd think someone would just leave
But that's easier said than done
Escape can be a tricky thing
Heavy burdens weigh people down

Stress paralysis holds many back
Ghosts materialize like sudden doubt
The lights are always flickering
Could this room exist inside your head

One's mind can be an awful place
Breaking out requires courage
So many dwell in their mental prisons
Release exists beyond the door
My Own Prison
It's a common thing to dwell in one's head, we all do it. Throughout life the only person we'll have at all times is ourselves. Unfortunately our heads can double as prisons. It's far too easy to recoil and hide inside ourselves, but that can often lead to things getting uglier. Stress, depression, anxiety, overthinking.. the list of things that could turn a healthy head space into a personal prison goes on.

Release exists outside our heads, whether that's through talking to someone or some other form of expression. Living in one's head with all of one's baggage can be an incredibly difficult thing to do. I could keep going on about this topic but I've likely said enough, no need to rant.
I'm here but at odds with the reason
Out of touch yet somehow around
Like leaves I will change with the season
Until I've fallen to the ground

What a pain it must be just to reach out
On a frequency no one has heard
Can't you see the cracks riddled throughout
Over time the lines have all blurred

You've abandoned the world to orbit
But I won't be drawn down from the moon
Shaking me would require a comet
Out of reach I don't wish to commune

Transmissions are met with more silence
You've no word from the alien life
Why dream of what dwells in the distance
Does the quiet cut deep like a knife

I'm gone and I rest in the darkness
Out of sight though I shine all the same
Some change might be perceived as madness
You've nothing but life's seasons to blame
Echoes of feelings stir up thoughts
Thoughts and stale ambivalence
It's a wonder I can still taste it
Passion's spice upon my lips

Memories brush over old scar tissue
Like a finger caressing warm skin
Old ghosts stir fresh musings
And musings spark modern possibilities

Aged romanticism has it's own kick
Not unlike a bottle of smooth whiskey
Eventually the bar becomes a pedestal
One more reason to tread softly

How strange to revisit old warmth
To have it racing through your veins
Reverberating even in your secret self
Sparking a flame of times past

I can taste the fire of years gone by
But only for a moment before it's gone
Old passion is left behind though
A new spice lingers on my lips

If you're curious about me, just send a note or something? But I suppose I should at least put a few things here.

I'm a hobbyist poet, I've been writing for.. shit. Seven years now I think? A lot of what I've written hasn't actually made it to dA, but those were likely things I didn't want to keep. I'm Canadian, I live on a beautiful island on the west coast. I like artsy shit, music, nature, books, video games, minerals, the odd movie/show when I can find someone to watch with, singing, photography and a bunch of other things.

I also have a tumblr if any of you are interested in that sort of thing! Go stalk me at! Stalkity stalk stalk.
Well, shit. Really, it's been a long time. Hell, it's been over a year since I've uploaded anything and I'm sorry for that. I've not had a computer but that's a sorry excuse for slacking so much in regards to my writing. This time the ball was a bowling ball dropped through a hundred story glass building. Oops!

Anyway, I'm gonna be putting a conscious effort into writing more often and uploading. I'm actually doing the same bit with my singing, which I might share at some point because why the hell not? It'd be stupid to abandon my passions, so why not share them?

I apologize to all my followers, to the ones who've followed this profile because they saw something they enjoyed. Here's hoping you'll enjoy what I've got to offer you going forward!
  • Mood: Optimism
  • Listening to: The Dark Half by Aesthetic Perfection
  • Reading: Yet another Star Wars novel because I adore them
  • Watching: You in the shower (this never changes!)
  • Playing: The Witcher 3
  • Eating: Applesauce of all things
  • Drinking: Drinking in the satisfaction of being back
