    I'm so far away from the spirit of Christmas,
    I've never seen this part of me before.
    It's taking all I have to wrap a present.
    No lights,No Tree. What the hell is wrong with me?

    Parents gone
    Children with their dad
    Why the fuck does Christmas has to be such a family day
    And why do I have to spend it alone?

    thank you. i think 2014 is going to be a lot better. hopefully for you too :)

    at this point i am trying to start 2014 with a clean slate. i am trying to heal broken friendships and tie up any loose ends so that i can enter 2014 and feel like i am being reborn. mending friendships is a delicate process. i hope i have the patience for it. i just hope that these people want to be a part of my life as much as i want them to be.

    When the Kingdom comes
    He puts his records on
    And with his blistered thumb hits play

    And with the volume up he goes and fills his cup
    And lets the drummer's drum take away the pain

    Breaking, Forsaken...
    What's that you're taking?
    Aaw, needing the feeling
    He lets the records play

    Should the future dim
    A cigarette lights hymn
    Vaporized a green light grin

    And when the shotglass talks
    He knows to listen up
    Until he's nice and numb again

    Shakened, Awakened
    Not one for faking
    Kneeling, his healing
    He lets the records play
    There's wisdom in his ways

    I been down and I fell so hard and far from grace
    I been hurt and I still recall the flaws on her face
    I been off, but I'm on, up above my feet, my feet again

    Shaken, Foresaken
    What's that your taking?
    Aaw, needing the feeling
    He lets the records play

    Shakened, Awakened
    Not one for faking
    Kneeling, his healing
    He lets the records play
    There's wisdom in his ways

    I saw you,
    you were unaware of my presence...
    unaware of my being,
    Uncaring of my love for you,
    and all you are.
    I've never held you,
    and probably never will,...
    and it has finally occurred to me,
    that, that is okay with you.
    and I don't believe I can be "okay",
    with that.
    Peace, Love.

    I totally know this feeling, my man. Please just keep writing. Pretty much everything I have ever written has been about this very thing. Writing does help me deal with those circumstances though... Good luck :)

    I do also recognize this kind of feelings. And yes, writing does help me too. I hope it does the same for you ... Good luck. ;)

    Some days I think it would be such a relief to explode like an old sun and then go on to become the material for lots of new life the sun couldn't imagine before. The relief of a huge change! Some days need to feel like that, don't they?

    So as the new year approaches, I realize I have never made a resolution stick. Well its time for a f'n supernova! To explode out of this veneer of immaturity. To burn away the stains of broken vows and promises I've made to myself, year after year. This day, every day this year: I will resolve, I am not infallible. That she really is a lightning bolt and I caught her. That back there, it was me I left behind and I'm gonna save you fucker, not gonna lose you. time to drop the leash, climb up in my tree and dream the dreams of the girl...my savior,my lightning bolt, my habit....or I'll be sleeping by myself tonight! ;)

    remember that dark green nighttime
    and web-like spines down your back
    laughter ceased with every tearing
    when I walked in wearing
    peruvian sheep, a home-made crown
    that's some awe, your duty is
    love is so tremendously down some
    forty-nine-yard beaten-to-death path
    where all the forest hides the stars
    and instead preserves
    tar leaves
    look
    treachery is not given an arm or a coat, it is given a verse
    it's leaving us tomorrow on it's crazy wind-swept pathos
    the smallest space of everything you ever wanted
    can only ever be contained up there in mollusk high dreams
    but because it isn't
    you are never going to

    I came so far
    all to need a ride home

    The tremors on my flesh give cause
    numerous cilium lurk and grope for absent stimuli
    my teeth ach to tear it up in shreds
    eyes wide
    senses carnivorous
    my hands could crush steel into a half life
    of all that has been a lunged down
    yet I have the resolve to circumscribe it all
    I'll chain myself to a clairvoyant hope
    crawl out of the shadow of the liar's
    laughter
    my cellmate in a prison of addiction
    built by my hand, twenty-nine years....
    Emancipation proclamation, time served
    Rise
    I remember when, yeah. I swore I knew everything, oh yeah.

    take your pen as it is
    do not ever dismiss wet skies
    that is your ink for paper-words
    if you truly believe in writing yourself better
    you must step off the cliff's edge of safety
    fall deeply into insanity
    your hand will guide you
    orders taken from your beating heart's lead
    directly by influencing
    you will prevail
    victoriously here is nuts
    the struggle opened your mind
    your soul as gardens do
    you are now sailing bizarre

    This one is good Chadwick.

    I've been living with my mute button on lately and I have to say, it's not totally comfortable!

    Thanks for making me smile with this one!
