    cutting corners
    like cutting lines:
    crooked
    like cutting people

    sharp edges
    ouch

  • an ambassador to the trade
    she said as if he had it made
    simple now all you have to do
    is see this bullshit all the way through

    don’t shame but pity the liars
    for they burn themselves in their forest fires

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, circus 11 months, 3 weeks ago

    don’t rain on my parade!
    or my circus
    for the matter

    Our big red tents are
    lumpy
    and grungy
    and we much prefer
    the open air

    not to mention
    we really are
    trying
    to get away from
    all that stereotypical shit

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, insults 1 year ago

    to add insult to injury
    you didn’t even scrape your knee
    as you stumbled out the door
    while the sky cried and rain began to pour

    fine! leave me!
    I don’t care
    just try to leave!
    just you dare

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, companion 1 year ago

    come with me
    companion to the wilderness

    sit with me
    and stand with me
    and walk with me
    in the wild

    sit with me
    and listen to me
    tell you of the jungle
    in my mind

    look at the map
    of scribbles
    I hand you

    and patch the holes in my life
    with thread like
    simply saying
    my only problem
    is that the map is upside down

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, spikes 1 year, 5 months ago

    the spikes that stabbed
    her back were made of no plain steel
    they were sharper than any metal
    in her head, but all too real

    as they pushed into her skin
    broken open gushed with blood
    societal standards are a sin
    and body image is a flash flood

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, skylight 1 year, 6 months ago

    the dawn will approach and the rivers will unfreeze
    though it now is night and the world seems grim
    the skylight is dim
    as it stretches over the forests and seas

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, hospital 1 year, 7 months ago

    hospitals are clean
    too clean?
    and white
    too white
    they smell
    clean
    and
    white

    like a lie
    that’s too perfect
    that’s covering a smell
    of death

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, doorway 1 year, 9 months ago

    The doorway looked empty
    from a specific angle.
    but not from the angle of the door.

    So little people think of him
    he barely thinks of himself anymore.

    Afterall, what are doors for?

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, general 1 year, 10 months ago

    in general, he didn’t know what to do. In this moment of fear and threat, he was completely dumbfounded by the pressure of the situation. The privateers that surrounded him looked up at the podium he was about to walk up to with eyes full of hope and expectancy. Like the far-off sound of motorcycles drive by as you sit in your car, the announcer…[Read more]

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, refugee 1 year, 10 months ago

    she sought refugee in the night
    from the increasingly bitter storm.
    she stood alone, paralyzed with fright,
    and nothing to keep her warm.

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, tedious 1 year, 10 months ago

    tedious writing is.
    like seriously?
    they expect us to, what?
    type. Move my fingers on the keyboard- press down?
    As if anyone has time for that.
    not to mention pencils.
    I don’t think I have those muscles in my fingers.

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, mop 1 year, 10 months ago

    his face was the very picture of dismay.
    “stop moping,” she demanded.
    “but that’s what you asked me to do?” replied her small boy.
    She looked at him in confusion, “clean the floor- mop it!”
    “Oh,” he exclaimed, as he began to do his work.
    when she left the room, he giggled and whispered

    she forgot a p.

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, witheld 1 year, 10 months ago

    Within her hand, she held a box
    within the box there held a key
    with the key there held an opportunity
    to open
    a door

    Within the door that held a secret
    withheld forever

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, haircut 1 year, 11 months ago

    “Get a haircut,” his sister suggested as she ruffled his hair.
    “you look like a dork,” he mumbled that he didn’t care.
    “I’m serious” she insisted “you look like a girl,”
    He wondered if that would be the worst thing in the world.

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, fading 1 year, 11 months ago

    I have a fading memory
    of a face
    of a smile
    no a grin

    The fading memory feels like an old flashlight
    dark and growing even more dim

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, relate 1 year, 12 months ago

    Sure call it fate.
    We’re not going on a date.
    Just can’t relate.
    This isn’t a debate.
    Let’s clear the slate.

    I just don’t like you.

  • Siddhartha commented on the post, harmonica 2 years ago

    The harmonica’s melody plays on
    Far after the accordion has out harmonized it.
    Far after the trumpet has out blown it.
    Far after the girl has out sung it.

    The harmonica plays on, for it has nothing else to do.
    Me, too.
