• fantastic job, wheeling through the fantastic heartbreak we accomplished together. i yell to you, you scream at me, our fists swing at phantoms we substitute for ourselves. we will cherish this hell for the rest of our lives. i will cherish this place for the rest our lives.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, failing 4 years, 10 months ago

    moon, a song by bjork, gave me some new thoughts about failing. i wasn’t ready to hear until after the biggest failure of my life. big failures mean you’re chasing big dreams, and you must keep trying and failing, and you will get there.

    failing is just fine when you’re able to accept it and still keep your primary focus on success!

    well duh it’s the horizons. look at any of the other entries around here. lately i feel pain as my horizons broaden. i’m a virgin to this extreme value fulfillment. go to sleep, wake up and try again. go to sleep again.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, unfounded 5 years ago

    my hope is that everyone saw this one word prompt and thought to write, ‘my fears are unfounded.’ that’s certainly the first thing i thought. also, my belief in an intensely difficult existence in order to achieve my improbable desires is unfounded. let’s get easy.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, disfigured 5 years, 1 month ago

    life is a strange touch, the way my soul skates across the surface of the physical – one little moment of tangential touch before i shoot on to somewhere, and the world curves on to somewhere else, and the way we both come out a little disfigured after.

  • i take a vista-view, i climb high to make sure my dreams stay within sight, stay within my memory… then i climb back down and dig the earth, and it’s good, because my mind is staying focused on the prize, and that focus sends life into everything i do.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, instill 5 years, 2 months ago

    while i slept this morning, and woke up, and slept more, and woke up, and decided to sleep a little more, i made sure to instill each waking moment with a nice feeling, or a nice thought. i knew i was building up my well-being for the day in those formative morning moments. so far it’s been a pretty good day.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, cake 5 years, 2 months ago

    stale cake, chocolate cake, strawberry shortcake. i remember seeing Cake live; it was one of the worst concerts in my experience. a dear friend actually just got hired as a cake decorator. she’s really happy about it, maybe i should buy one from her someday.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, stalling 5 years, 2 months ago

    i want to go see lorde in october in berkeley, but i’m not sure i REALLY want to. friends want to, and i love lorde, so i want to tell friends yes. i did see her recently in oakland… anyway, i’m stalling on giving my friends an answer.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, stalling 5 years, 2 months ago

    sometimes when i dream, i know i should wake, so i keep dreaming. stalling. before that game began this morning however, i’d had some AMAZING dreams of falling through traffic at full speed, but something about knowing it was a dream allowed me to navigate all the dangerous cars and land in a place of kissing butterflies and fantastic shapes/colors.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, sly 5 years, 2 months ago

    i get sly about how i handle my emotions, just like my more emotional swings slyly say to me, ‘you have no control over this. you can’t handle it, but don’t let anyone else know.’

    sly. slytherin. seriously.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, bonfire 5 years, 2 months ago

    my life is a bonfire, your eyes reflect a bonfire when they gaze upon me. all the branches, all the dead matter, stories from my pasts and futures, burning away before the chosen focus upon the present.

    i need a fire everlasting, lord help me find it.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, departure 5 years, 3 months ago

    this dream is a departure from where i thought i was going. ‘caste dating in the olympics’ was the phrase in my head when i awoke. this life is a departure from what i thought i was capable of, it’s gone beyond, and continues to go beyond.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, left 5 years, 3 months ago

    ‘it was left up to me to get right on down.’ that’s a phrase i hold onto to help me remember the proper way to hold hands in a circle: everyone’s left hands are palm UP, everyone’s right hands are palm DOWN.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, derived 5 years, 4 months ago

    my life is derived of seeds, roots, dirt, plants, consciousness sitting at every boundary of existence, watching things spring into being.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, level 5 years, 4 months ago

    on the level, heading up to the right space, in the flow, letting things and people contradict you, rising to meet the contradiction with open eyes and a flexible mind. that’s a major level-up.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, prayer 5 years, 4 months ago

    prayer is a private moment between you and something unseen that you cherish. when i pray, i often don’t know what is said, to me or from me. i often don’t know what to say, i have to remind myself that i can be completely honest in those moments… silence is a great expression of it all too though.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, overt 5 years, 4 months ago

    overt? like, an overt glance. a sneaky glance? an overly sneaky glance? i had donuts this morning, which share 2 letters with this ambiguous word. yeah i don’t clearly know what ‘overt’ means. guess i’ll find out soon though.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, gold 5 years, 5 months ago

    gold is all my life. inside, outside, everything and everyone. i am a fountain of gold showering upon existence, within a golden ocean.
    girls i know become particularly ravishing when they dash their eyes with some gold glitter.

  • Alex Light commented on the post, repressed 5 years, 5 months ago

    repressed. contained? suppressed? that which flows outward from within. this current takes us unmistakable toward our desires, toward our fates. repress it if you want.
