    If only I could go through the same metamorphic transformation. Perhaps one day I shall cocoon from this hideous monster into a beautiful butterfly.

  • Graham commented on the post, approach 8 years, 5 months ago

    One last breath before I sink like a stone in the sea. My approach to life has always been this forward- let what’s going to happen happen, for life’s not in your control. And when your stone has sunk to the bottom of the riverbed think back on how grateful you are for even being […]

  • Graham commented on the post, bee 8 years, 5 months ago

    This idea’s I have are nonsense. None of them are real, articulated thoughts. None have meaning, the meaning is just assumed by the reader of these words. That is the craft of writing; I let these words flow from my head like a bee during a beautiful summer day, and it is when these words […]

  • Graham commented on the post, swept 8 years, 5 months ago

    I was never going to be in love with her. I was probably never even going to date her. But we had spent months of time simply talking; was it wrong that I thought I was going to be rewarded for such behavior? But as I sit at this table at some party with some […]

  • Graham commented on the post, swept 8 years, 5 months ago

    Tomorrow will be another day. These past few weeks, months, years, seemed to have all been swept up together into one. But tomorrow, yes, tomorrow I will realize all I have done. I will be thankful for those and that around me. Life will reveal her mysteries to me and my boy life wonder shall […]

  • Graham commented on the post, cheap 8 years, 5 months ago

    I watched that stranger take fire. Embellished in the flames, peering from a distance as those close to him were charred from the searing heat. If we could help, if we could find some way to smother those flames, to revive that cheap, fragmented life, to reanimate those ashes, we would. But the fire took […]

  • Graham commented on the post, strong 8 years, 5 months ago

    I let the meanings fall from my head to my finger tips, push them through the ink in my pen and watch as they come to life before me. Sometimes I believe it’s the strongest way to let my emotions escape, other times I believe it’s just a way to forego confronting myself.

  • Graham commented on the post, tables 8 years, 5 months ago

    One more step in the right direction. Our bodys awkwardly turned towards one another, recognizing what our simplistic minds can’t. We’re divided by this wooden table, as I reach for straws and you fail to give them to me. How worry-some I was at sixteen.

  • Graham commented on the post, tangle 8 years, 6 months ago

    Every emotion is tangled, while I weave myself further into situations. Conflicting complications surround me on all sides burning the life they trap. Everything is always breaking apart while I burrow myself into this web of lies and deceit.

    It’s a trap.

  • Graham commented on the post, wool 8 years, 6 months ago

    She wears her fathers old sweater like battle armor. Every menacing comment directed jarringly her way recedes from her weary head into the seems of that old rag. It reminds her of her fathers snow covered grave and the strength that was lifted from those tombstones that one February afternoon.

  • Graham commented on the post, microphone 8 years, 6 months ago

    I take a nervous breath and let my guitar do the talking. Perhaps one day I’ll muster the courage to sing as loudly as I once did to her.

  • Graham commented on the post, revolt 8 years, 6 months ago

    We raised our glasses to the summer sky; a toast to the rebellion set before us. We were not fighting against society, or any implications such as that. We were already free from those simple matters. It was a revolt against our inner demons- that of which makes humans human. Those bottles represented a desperate […]

  • Graham commented on the post, fragrance 8 years, 6 months ago

    I gave it all up a year ago today. Looking back now I can see the errors of my ways, I can see how I thought I no longer needed her. But I do. I miss her smile. I miss the way fragrance. I miss who I was when I was with her.

  • Graham commented on the post, alarm 8 years, 6 months ago

    Static. Pulsing through my veins. A keen reminder of my mistakes. Perhaps it is now time to let go of all those I called dear.

  • Graham commented on the post, alarm 8 years, 6 months ago

    The alarm chims and my door swings open. Suddenly there is a surge of other inmates around me, all breaking towards the exit. In this desolation there is my freedom, does it really matter if I can’t leave these cell walls?

  • Graham commented on the post, pills 8 years, 6 months ago

    They used to pump me full or drugs. Pills with names so complex I couldn’t even pronounce them. But that was a long time ago, and I’ve overcome those emotional disabilities now. It amazes me that modern medicines answer to almost everything is sedation.

  • Graham commented on the post, wrench 8 years, 6 months ago

    There’s an anarchist book club in the northern part of my state called “Wrench in the Works”. It’s always amazed me that some of the ideals of the punk rock culture are still present today.

  • Graham commented on the post, jelly 8 years, 6 months ago

    I can’t think of a greater midday snack then a PBJ with milk. Yum. There’s something about this delectable food that makes me think back to the innocence of my childhood. It’s amazing to me to think that I can go out with client’s and spend hundreds of dollars on a meal, and one meal […]

  • Graham commented on the post, reports 8 years, 6 months ago

    I awake to the knowledge every morning knowing that I will have to do dumb, blind, meaningless reports for school. It’s a terrible, terrible feeling, and a silly reminder of how broken the American school system is. Reports? Why don’t we try real world experience.

  • Graham commented on the post, relatives 8 years, 6 months ago

    My relatives are truly wonderful people. Everytime I see them I am reminded of how lucky I am to have such a great family, and tell myself to spend more time with them because I know many are nearing the ends of their lovely lifes. It’s a shame I keep putting it off because I […]
