• Aidan commented on the post, catapult 6 years, 3 months ago

    I endlessly fill my free time with activities and commitments to distract me from myself and what i’m missing in my life

  • Aidan commented on the post, credibility 6 years, 3 months ago

    am i credible to myself?
    am i who I really think I am
    have i still more to show myself
    and others?
    am i that image in my head that i thought would never be
    floating over rough waves through the dark see
    looking for the perfect state to be
    are all good things in life really free?

  • Aidan commented on the post, café 6 years, 4 months ago

    Que qieres?
    Pregunto el camarero
    yo lo vi con mis ojos mojados
    el reflejo de un sol bajando en los rincones
    olvide, por el momento, lo que estaba haciendo alli
    solo, en un cafe, mirando el despide del dia

  • Aidan commented on the post, geometric 6 years, 4 months ago

    geometric juice coliding
    the sound blares in the back of the dance hall
    half full
    strobe lights pounding off the hard stone walls
    through the brief flashes certain sights are exposed
    hair in mid flight
    skin
    teeth
    hands
    souls

  • Aidan commented on the post, welfare 6 years, 4 months ago

    they waited in line all morning it seemed
    they got there early, before the early morning sun gleamed
    they sat on the sidewalk in warm and in cold
    hand in hand, the fingers they hold
    they waited for food outside on the walk
    where someone had scribbled some boxes with chalk

  • Aidan commented on the post, vines 6 years, 4 months ago

    he rushed through the jungle
    not a thought in his head
    except the primeval fear
    for the pain which he dread
    the hunters were behind
    their guns were booming
    through the twisted vines
    his feet were moving

  • Aidan commented on the post, wheat 6 years, 4 months ago

    running through the field
    the sun shines off the wheat in golden rays
    your hair brown and flowing like the rows
    of rich yellow and orange
    your feet and toes cringling against the harsh ground
    I catch up to you and we fall back
    a harder landing than we thought
    but together in the sun

  • Aidan commented on the post, destined 6 years, 4 months ago

    are we destined to a life subjected by our conscience
    that struggles with finding meaning in everything we do
    to the point where the only way to escape temporarily is to inhibit it
    or else face a life of eternal struggle

  • Aidan commented on the post, listening 6 years, 5 months ago

    maybe i’ll log in
    and write a short romantic little poem
    to satisfy those at home reading
    you know, something that will strike deep in your heart
    at least for a few seconds
    and maybe make you think about your own life
    and think “Oh that sounds like me”
    or maybe you wish it was you
    or maybe its not you at all

  • Aidan commented on the post, winged 6 years, 5 months ago

    just like a one winged dove
    the song plays in the background
    the car radio turned on low
    one of those classic rock station you dad listens to
    but you dont hear it
    you cant hear anything other than
    your own heartbeat as you lean forward
    until flesh touches flesh

  • Aidan commented on the post, leathery 6 years, 6 months ago

    the crack of the wood and the cloud of dirt
    his heart races and feet pound as he rounds third

    the wind at his back and his eyes on home plate
    the fans are cheering for the player so great

    the ball reaches home and finds its place
    in the leathery glove snarled in lace

  • Aidan commented on the post, flailing 6 years, 6 months ago

    free failing through air
    hair whipping back against your head
    arms and legs spread wide
    fingers stretched as far as your skin will permit
    a feeling you will never experience again
    something that only comes
    when you are flailing

  • Aidan commented on the post, learn 6 years, 6 months ago

    don’t just sit there
    learn something
    go search the internet
    watch a video
    strum a few chords on a guitar
    or draw a picture of a cat
    watch the inauguration
    do something
    anything
    use the precious minutes you have

  • Aidan commented on the post, claims 6 years, 6 months ago

    the papers fluttered down from the sky
    a sky of white and plastic and metal
    in which sunlight streams down from the flourescent above
    and surround the arms
    thrown up in the air triumphantly
    by the young 20 some business man
    who proudly chucked them

  • Aidan commented on the post, husband 6 years, 6 months ago

    she grasped his hand with a wink in her eye
    the clouds moved on and above
    the stars flew by
    they sat as the fresh pine scent flew
    and a love they never new set flight

  • Aidan commented on the post, wall 6 years, 6 months ago

    separating two rooms through mere distance
    an impassible barrier blocking our existence

  • Aidan commented on the post, features 6 years, 6 months ago

    those marvelous features
    my head’s spinnin’
    full of creepy crawly creatures
    she’s always winnin’

  • Aidan commented on the post, visitor 6 years, 6 months ago

    he walked in the house like a visitor
    not sure if he should take off his boots
    or track the muck of miles walked
    of foreign lands and strange winds
    all over the wood floor
    he’d known for years

  • Aidan commented on the post, cool 6 years, 6 months ago

    her cool fingers slide down my back
    the goosebumps raise on my thighs and forearms
    a touch soft as silk
    and cool as if she had just entered from outside
    where a harsh wind blows
    and the empty trees rattle

  • Aidan commented on the post, responsibility 6 years, 6 months ago

    granted responsibility
    she gave you over me
    and through my darkest hours you will see
    that i’m only trying to be free
    the simplest way I see
    The best way, it may not be
