    Colors. The variety of colors is astounding. A child will ask what the name of a certain color is and while you may have an answer for some, eventually all you will be saying is “very dark blue” and “very very […]

    The Catcher in the Rye. Catch an eye. “Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket…”
    Never shall I be caught on the thoughts of my love…

    Finding him. Them. Whoever will care, will listen and not speak. Who will invest themselves in you. They are scarce. They are perhaps the most sought after kind of people and yet the rarest to find.

  • bex commented on the post, glimmer 7 years, 6 months ago

    Everything around me is utter darkness. Feeling around me, there is nothing, just the ground I stand upon. I run for miles in a direction. Who knows where? I keep going in circles, I’m sure of it. But I keep going, not knowing my way and maybe soon I will see light in the distance. […]

  • bex commented on the post, abstract 7 years, 8 months ago

    There’s this funny thing about living in a world full of pluralism, relativism and individualism. People seem to think that certain things don’t matter, or they can be or do whatever they want, without rules and boundaries. Sometimes these ideals are harmful and sometimes they are innocent and can even produce a sort of beauty. […]

  • bex commented on the post, automatic 7 years, 8 months ago

    Automatic is easy. You don’t have to think too much about what you’re doing. You just shift into automatic and go. Cars are just like life. The only difference is when you put your life on “automatic” or “autopilot” you forget how much you like to make you own choices and to think about what […]

  • bex commented on the post, radical 7 years, 8 months ago

    It’s a radical evolution we have here
    It’s a train wreck if I’ve ever seen it
    All you want to do is revolutionize the fears
    I tell you, it’s a radical evolution
    Melting icecaps
    Hemorrhaging angels
    I tell you it’s a radical evolution
    Cause you from buildings to dangle

  • bex commented on the post, castle 7 years, 9 months ago

    I want to hold the castle in the sky. Scratch that, I want to live in the castle in the sky. I want to have those walls. Those turrets of stone that protect me. Oh how they save me from such pain. In castles there is protection. There is solace. There is peace. A place […]

  • bex commented on the post, couch 7 years, 9 months ago

    Laying on the couch, I feel nothing, see nothing, hear nothing. I am nothing. In this moment on my couch I am nothing. It is wonderful to be nothing sometimes though, no? This couch has provided my escape from being something. Its old, soft, time worn fabric is pleasing to my fingertips as I lay […]

  • bex commented on the post, distinguished 7 years, 10 months ago

    In a sea of people, the distinguished gentleman is hardly noticed. He passes them by like a wave on the ocean, each one carefully avoiding his stoic, yet regal gaze as he pressed on towards his goal with a aura of one who carries the weight of loneliness.

  • bex commented on the post, ant 7 years, 10 months ago

    Why aren’t we all like ants? They can carry much more than their body weight, the continue to work and work, never being asked. It is instinctual. Ants are the vulnerable versions of what we humans should be, and only because we are much more difficult to kill than ants.

  • bex commented on the post, transport 7 years, 11 months ago

    Walking down the dimly lit hall way, he knows his destination. His purpose is simple: receive the package, transport and deliver it to it’s rightful owner. In a place like this, where the air reeks of fornication and cheap perfume, where the shouts of solitude and abuse come from other rooms around, nothing seems safe, […]

    Watch me step outside, kneel down and put my hands in the dirt. Watch me grab that bulb. It’s a perrenial. Watch me place it in the dirt and cover it. What else does it need? Light bulb! Water.

    Car. House. Heart. Locker. Safe. Soul.
    Are they safe? Lock them up. Never let anyone in.

    Micro. Macro. Manage. Make sure that as you fill their drinks, you know where the lemons are, and you should probably be able to fill two drinks at a time. Oh you want to play frisbee? Well do you know how to throw a frisbee? This is the best way to catch a frisbee. Don’t […]

    The temperature is rising. You know it’s about to explode. The temper of your heart and head are colliding with his and you know it won’t be pretty. But what can you do? Are you going to let your boiling hot temper ruin everything you worked for? For while the sun provides light for the […]

  • bex commented on the post, wings 7 years, 11 months ago

    As the wind is pushed beneath me, I feel my body lift off the ground. My stomach drops as it’s confused. Beat. Beat. Beat. The wind flies by my face as I fly by the clouds. At three years old, flying is all I ever dreamed of.

    Baby steps they always say. First you must confront the problem. Acknowledge that it exists. Then What? Baby steps.

  • bex commented on the post, skeleton 7 years, 11 months ago

    Sins like skeletons are so very hard to hide
    In the end they’ll be found
    So in retrospect, why try
    As your lies go round and round
    The curtains fall
    And the skeletons will once again crawl.
