Words used to come to me As I faked my way so naturally But you don’t have to worry, be well I became a mute without sign as soon as I fell We can get lost in time A constant in a blur A thing that is for sure Let’s run from the world and feel the thrill I won’t move from your side I’ll just stand still As we paint colours that shine We are a constant in time
You got me wondering What I am doing Trying to figure us out The leaves change their colours but you stay the same There are no sounds when I shout Why can’t you hear me? Please leave me be I just need an out Stretched and thin Torn apart Bursting at the seems Wake me up From this sleep You are my worst dreams
Chapter 3 - Messages
Words can be an attractive thing. The way each letter connects to formulate an idea that transcends the symbolic interpretation of language, and establishes the very beliefs and ideas of an individual. These single ideas blend together to create a sentence that tells the story of a person in the most beautiful and poetic way. Words are attractive, but your words turn me on. At first, words were...
Chapter 2 - The Meet
A first impression can influence the course of a relationship. Too many times have I been faced with warning signs, yet I still proceeded. I would venture into the unknown abyss only to be lost in the darkness. I feared that this could happen again. I let fear and doubt stagnate my very needs and desires. The shackles of the heart became a weight on my very soul. Then I saw you. I broke free and...
Chapter 1 - Timing
They say there are six degrees of separation, but the only degree that existed was the amount of time it took for our destiny to be realized. It was written before, not with words, but with chances. The probability of meeting was more than likely, it was certain. Too many times our paths crossed, but our eyes never met. Our words never reached each others ears, but they did reach our peers. We...
I’m a fool. I do things out of curiosity and/or boredom that make myself feel bad. Why do I do these things? I have been asking myself this question for some time now. I guess I secretly sabotage my happiness in order to keep myself from being too happy. The fact of the matter is, being happy is painful. I say this because when you are happy, you have something to lose. I guess I’m...
What a Beautiful Day
I was kidnapped! Okay, I wasn’t really kidnapped, but I was taken on an adventure without knowing where I was going. I am lucky enough to have a girlfriend who thinks of sweet things to do for me. She took me on an adventure where we drove around aimlessly. We ate ice cream cones till our stomachs hurt,—at least mine did—we looked at beautiful homes, and explored places...
I have so many dreams. I want to change the world, inspire people, and most of all, make those around me as happy as I can. I hope that my future career can help further these dreams, but I fear that I may become stuck in a job solely based on financial security. I am lucky to have supportive people in my life who encourage me to follow my dreams. I guess I’m just glad that on my life...
Today I became aware. The words seeped through my consciousness and became more than an idea, it became a definitive plan. It all became real. I can’t believe that my dreams are coming true. All of my dreams are becoming real. What I thought was impossible, is now more than possible, it is a definite. I believe in the words, and I know over time, the actions will follow suit.
Will you still love me in the morning? I ask this as I wonder, could this really last? It almost seems too good to be true. To have someone who cares for you wholeheartedly. Who does things without ever having to be told. Who knows just how to make you happy without you ever saying a word. This is all alien to me, I have no idea what to make of it all. The funny thing is, I haven’t known you...
Into the Rabbit Hole
You went into the rabbit hole but you didn’t find a wonderland Just a life full of paradoxes Trying to survive in quicksand I ask you to please believe me Because I know this much to be true What you saw wasn’t even real They played a nasty trick on you There is good beyond the hopeless And beauty beyond all that pain I’ll show you what it means to be happy There is...
We often fear the unknown based on the illusion we call Time. Time is simply a means of calculating how long our lives are. Therefore, it is something that is not natural to the universe, but was created by humans as a means of understanding the world around us. Time gives us order and it gives us a basis of understanding, but it also contributes to anxiety and fear. We often live our lives afraid...
We often refrain from taking chances simply out of fear, fear of the unknown. We may be fully aware of what it is we want, but we dare not move. The thing I have realized is, I’m not going to just stand still. They say that “flowing water never turns stale”, and I believe this to be the case with life and chances. The thing is, I know what it is I want. I am without a doubt, 100%...
When all things are dry, dull, and mediocre, I still have my dreams. I sometimes wish that my dreams could be written down and be viewed like a movie. I could place these dreams in a journal, and have a pet Unicorn named Snowflake guard them. His horn would act as a beacon for all dreams and hopes, as I pour my inner most thoughts into the journal he protects ever so vigilantly. By now, I hope...
A month apart. It may not seem like that long, but it was enough for me to miss you. In fact, I missed you before you even left. It’s strange because I can go days, weeks, even months without seeing some of my closest friends and family members, yet the absence of you trumps them all. I would be lying if I said that I haven’t been hoping this month would fly by. That being said, I...
How am I supposed to know right now How these colours sound, I’m blind and deaf somehow As I lay beneath the stars you shine I’m under candle light, can you tell me is this right And if I, say this Will you ever hear me And If I, say this Can you really hear me
I guess I’m trying to figure out what I’m going to do with my life. I have so many things I want to do, and I can imagine the life I want, but it’s the getting there that scares me. I see my future—at least the one that I want—the pieces are all there, but certain things need to connect for it to all happen, and unfortunately that all takes time. I can be patient, but...
Writing My Life
Life moves fast, too fast if you ask me. The question is, how do you slow it down? I wish life was like writing, and through the incorporation of punctuation, we could slow it down. I could add commas to take a breath, or add periods to freeze a moment. Life would be far simpler if it were like writing. The only conclusion I can come to is, that the people we surround ourselves with, are our...
Listen here baby, we got all night I can take my time, and do you right We can take it slow, use my hands baby I can make you moan, or just maybe we can go fast, as I pull your hair Kiss your lips, with that tender lovin’ care Kiss on your neck, and squeeze your thighs Our bodies move, to the music of our sighs Because, We’ll be making love, yeah, yeah We’ll be moving...
I kind of want to try stand up comedy. I have always wanted to try—as I love to make people laugh—but my fear of rejection and failure prohibit me from trying. What I would love to do is meet a famous comedian—Dave Chappelle would be amazing—and tell them my jokes to see if they find it funny. Perhaps they could even perform the jokes. I would have no problem writing jokes...
My world is all dry, Since you went away, How you left that day. Oh I just can’t believe, Got me missing you, If you only knew. Oh all that I can say, Is that I do, Really love you. Oh baby, got me wondering How you came and, turned my world around But now you, got me stuttering Got you leaving, turned me upside down
I am debating on becoming a vegetarian. The thing is, I love eating meat, I am just against the industrialization of meat. I think that there are a lot of negative consequences due to the industrialization of meat. This billion dollar industry has negatively impacted our health, environment, economy and also our empathy—as the treatment of these animals is often inhumane. I am still torn...
We’ve almost made it. It’s not a huge achievement—or even a notable milestone—yet, I still feel the need to celebrate. You’ve been gone for 16 days now, and so, we are officially halfway there. In 15 more days, you’ll be back and it will be as if you never left. Actually, I take it back. It will be better than when you left, because if time apart showed me...
Music never sounded, so beautiful And colours have never been, so bright Time has never been, so wonderful Holding you all through the night. And I’ll hold, on to you I’ll hold on to this moment tonight And I just, wanna love you I wanna love you all through the night
Is it Art or a Product?
I believe that our society has become so dependant on goods and services, that it is almost impossible to separate anything we do from the corporate world. Our very selves are simply products of established brands, trends, and business ventures. I truly feel that the arts is one of the few aspects in our modern world where we have the freedom to escape such corporal shackles. Through writing,...
Who's Your First Call?
When something good happens, you can’t wait to tell this person. When something bad happens, you confide in them and they make the bad moments bearable. Everyone has that one person who they tell everything to. This confidant becomes more than just a person who listens, but in a way helps establish your experiences—even if they weren’t there to experience it firsthand. It’s...
Radio Killed Music
Mindless drones moving to a melody. Music was life, now it’s the death of me. The radio is no friend, now it’s my enemy. Got me drunk off a beat, like I’m sippin’ Hennessey. There is no substance to it, just a sound. Got me seeking the truth in the lost and found. Remembering when music had colour and soul. Sitting here reminiscing of the days of old.
8 Things I Like About Myself
Today someone asked me to write down the 8 things I like about myself. I found the question perplexing. Talking about my strengths is something I find difficult. I have been known to jokingly boast, but it is never serious. That is why when someone asks me a serious personal question (such as what are your strengths? etc.), I have a hard time answering it. Either way, I decided to list 8 things I...
How Life Brings About Change
Today I took a walk around my neighbourhood, and I noticed how much it has changed. I have lived on the same street for the majority of my life, yet that seems to be one of the few things that have remained the same. As I pondered the changes that occurred—such as friends moving, houses changing, stores leaving—I realized that change will occur because life itself requires it. Life by...
Today we remember the Battle of Hogwarts
Today is May 2nd, the day the battle of Hogwarts 14 years ago. The day that Harry, Ron and Hermione snuck back into Hogwarts and destroyed the Horcruxes. The day that Harry finally defeated Voldemort. We remember everyone who fought in the war and all those who died. Fred Weasley, Nymphadora Tonks, Remus Lupin, Colin Creevey, Severus Snape and more. May we raise our wands to those who fought and...
When Will We Grow Up?
Can we really call it a lie? It is certainly misleading, but a lie? Society has led us to believe that there is a dramatic life changing shift between childhood to adulthood. This change exists, but it is not as dramatic as many would think. There is no set age or time when one becomes an adult. When you really think about it, we are all still children, just some do “adult” like...
Come tomorrow you’ll be in the sky, above the clouds, and away from me. This month will be hard for me. I am not the kind of person that misses people. I have never longed for anyone, yet somehow you have changed that, you have changed me. We haven’t been together long, yet you already understand and know me better than most people—if not all people. People always say that they...
Our lips collide in the most electrifying way. My stomach catapults into my chest as we move to a rhythm we have designed. As we transcend beyond the physicality of our bodies, into the imaginative realm where only you and I exist, my soul ignites into a fiery passion. For this moment, there is no world, except that which we have created. If I could pick a moment of time to relive over and over, I...
4 years and counting
With a blink of an eye, four years have passed and gone. It feels strange to know that you haven’t been around. You have been absent through—what I consider—my most prominent years of growth. I graduated University this year, and now I’m heading into the real world. I do want to do more school—and hopefully become a teacher—but that will have to wait for a bit....
I wish I was a fortune teller, or a mind reader. A soul seeker that can understand the deepest truths of a person’s heart. Alas, I am just a man, a man left in wonder. I can sit here and ponder the trivialities or I can learn to just stay confident. I wonder if I am any different from anyone else? What is it that makes me special? Or am I being too bold to think that I am special at all? I...
