    If sleeping could cure everything I’d never wake again.
    Which is not to say I’d like to sleep forever in the sense
    of taking my life away, but it is a way of saying I’d like
    this pain to subside and these worries to melt away
    similarly to that of your own world when you were here.

    You know you were the secret to this nation’s increase of wealth.

    You were the secret weapon for every harsh moment that came our way.

    Yes, I have begun to write about you in past tense. You shouldn’t think about that too much.

    Just let it kick you in the gut so you remember every time you look back that you messed up.

    You fucked up, Babe.

    “Something tells me if you had a passport I’d never see you again,” you whispered as we stood in line at Walgreen’s for the next available photographer.

    “Darling, you could come with me, if only you wanted to see the world as well as me,” I answered as calmly as possible.

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, lint 2 years, 6 months ago

    Maybe your name is just lint in my pocket that doesn’t get removed ’cause the dryer is too full. And I guess that you could just be a face sitting in the foam of my third cappuccino today.

    Perhaps you’re just another scar that won’t have the time to fade in this life.

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, perspective 2 years, 7 months ago

    Darling, you’ve got one hell of a pair of eyes.
    The clarity and the perspective are so amazing that you could be the epitome of art

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, cabinet 2 years, 7 months ago

    They say that when I was little I would climb through the cabinet and sit on the shelf with the captain Crunch box and giggle to myself. When they found me and asked why I was laughing I exclaimed that I was talking with the ghosties – my most fun friends.

    Until the day I couldn’t reach the shelf anymore, and they realized the ghosts were…[Read more]

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, crystals 2 years, 7 months ago

    There are shattered crystals within your eyes that tell the world you’ve known pain, you’ve seen the depths of loneliness and your heart has been abused a couple times.

    But there’s a light around your heart that’s still so bright you refuse to be brought down by the darkness – and everyone can see that clearly too.

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, collar 2 years, 7 months ago

    She wears a goddamned cat collar to school everyday, it’s made of black felt and a name tag – just in case our perfectly behaved classmates decide to start a fight and she dies in the middle of it.

    She keeps that collar on at home too, especially if her boyfriend’s there taking up all the bed with his “massive manliness” but it’s just so he…[Read more]

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, treasure 2 years, 7 months ago

    Treasure these words you’ve got filling your mind from the headphones pressed so deeply into your ears.

    Remember the way strangers get you through every moment of your life with as little loneliness as possible.

    Taste this emotion streaming in and out of you as you move from second to second experiencing it all.

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, oven 2 years, 7 months ago

    If all the world were an oven instead of a stage would we be any closer to fully cooked and developed at birth, or would we all just come out too charred to care about racial differences?

    If all the world were an oven instead of a stage, couldn’t we be better versions of ourselves in a number of ways?

    I don’t have any idea what a meme is so this one is impossible to do within a minute

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, wolf 2 years, 7 months ago

    Everyone likes to think that a wolf in sheep’s clothing is a bastard acting for his own good. You don’t have to feel ashamed, you can just be in awe of a world that isn’t yours.

    It’s okay to wanna be something you’re not.

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, middle 2 years, 7 months ago

    Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Somewhere in the middle of all that sunbleached darkness you will see the core of your dreams.

    Use this to travel far and find your way.

    It works for any type of being lost.

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, keys 2 years, 7 months ago

    You continue asking why I always leave my keys at home, knowing full well that the door will be locked when I get back there.

    The answer couldn’t be any more simple; it gives me more time to spend with you.

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, grounded 2 years, 7 months ago

    Sometimes I tell myself you are around to keep my more… whimsical ideas grounded.

    I finally understand that’s the only reason you ever approached me.

    But you’re dreams are all so much more interesting than mine.

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, collapsed 2 years, 7 months ago

    You remember more of how the world collapsed upon you than when it helped build you higher into the skies.

    Laugh a little more, smile often and all of this will seem more kind.

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, delighted 2 years, 8 months ago

    There once was a time where you were delighted just by waking up to a room filled with rogue rays of sunlight.

    Lately that cheery greeting upsets you enough for you to settle further into the covers with more pillows over your eyes.

    For days like that, I hope you remember, I’m always here ready to take your hand and help you up or through.

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, bottle 2 years, 8 months ago

    There’s still a bottle of unopened red wine sitting on my counter top. The label says it’s perfect for desert or even cheese and grapes, which is kinda funny, because even the least knowledgeable drinker knows that wine’s just not that versatile.

    And yet this one is. Supposedly.

    Maybe the company just anticipated a fresh egg would take it…[Read more]

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, painter 2 years, 8 months ago

    You always were my bet on the painter of the skies out here. I mean, the west coast has always been heavy handed with your favorite colors and the rains never seem to fade away – much like the storms you begged for as you lived so far away from the slightest drop.

    Thank you for being such a worldly artist.

  • M. Rene' commented on the post, structure 2 years, 8 months ago

    I don’t know how you haven’t noticed it before, but you are built of the strongest bones to ever exist, your blood has the highest boiling temperature known to mankind, and somehow you are still the most fragile structure to walk across the surface of this planet we call home.

    Darling, you could be invincible if only you put your mind to it.
