Trust Fall

WordPress Daily Prompt – Undulate

We’re statues against the wall, hands poised at the waist, gently braced against the chaos of our impending fall.

Tell me, what awaits us here,

In the multi-colored sphere of circles unknown to the naked eye?

Can I trust you dear?

When they push us one by one, blind folded and blind sided, off the lisp of reality into the slowly undulating waters of our fears …

Will you be there?

Whisper Your Name

I guess I’m liking the open nature of the prompt today. Two posts

WordPress Daily Prompt – Almost

Today,
I almost said your name out loud,
Like a ghost haunting the doors to my mind
You’re always there but rarely do I find …
But today,
I almost didn’t whisper your name to the clouds,
Instead I choked on the word,
Fearful that somehow you’d hear.
And today,
I learned why I can’t yell your name in the crowd
And why I wonder if I should know your songs at all.
Our greatest fear has always been falling.
Today,
I almost hit the ground.

The Sum

WordPress Daily Prompt – Total

 

I have things to say,
But I just can’t get them out.
Not in the eloquent beautiful way,
Not in the form of a song.
Everything we’ve done,
All these steps have led us
To these moments.
I don’t want to go,
Please tell me
I don’t have to.
The sum of everything,
We’ve ever done
Is right here
Disappearing into your eyes
Catching with our breath.
Take my hand and tell me,
I don’t want you to go.

 

The World is on Fire

WordPress Daily Prompt – Imaginary

It lives in my head,
The thing with no eyes.
Teeth sharpened on fear
Gnash at the gates.
Tongues split like snakes
Reaching for a taste.

The world is on fire
And she walks with it.

It lives in my mind,
Moving quietly through,
On claws made of soul.
Heaving breaths
And empty roars
Exhale ash and ember.

The world is on fire
And she moves through it.

It lives in my paper,
Scrolling with the pen,
Curving through the words.
Twisting and breaking,
Echoing laughter,
Slinging from page to page.

The world is on fire
And she scribbles with it.

Feel

WordPress Daily Prompt – Survive

Your words make me feel alive.

I know you’re not speaking to me but in that moment it doesn’t matter.

Because your voice makes me feel.

Things I thought I knew,

Feelings I thought were gone;

Everything comes back when I hear you.

And I’ll jokingly say that you fuck the mic,

And maybe you kind of do,

But that’s ok because without it

I wouldn’t feel anything at all.

 

Living Life in Harmony

WordPress Daily Prompt – Harmony

Another actual blog! Looky there.

In honor of today’s prompt and record store day 2017 I’m throwing out some beautiful harmonies and melodies that get me through.

Music has always been a huge part of my life. I was raised on the likes of Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix and I’ve delved into many realms since.

I’ve listened to everything from full orchestras to pure industrial like Skinny Puppy.

Music has had a profound and deep effect on me throughout my life. Whether it’s been through early memories or making me feel something when I thought I would be broken forever …

The right piece at the right time can truly save a person if you allow it to.

Without further ado, here’s some music I love:

Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here and Pink Floyd: Meddle – Although I grew up listening to Pink Floyd these albums were my first intentional experience with them as a pre-teen/teen

Jimi Hendrix: Blues – This is a compilation album of blues songs that Jimi sang/covered. Some are live versions, some are studio versions. Some were unreleased. They’re all pretty fantastic.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience: Axis Bold as Love – Essentials.

Joy Division: Unknown Pleasures – I love Joy Division.

Skinny Puppy: Too Dark Park  and Skinny Puppy: VivisectVi – Because Skinny Puppy.

Speaking of Skinny Puppy and industrial music

Nine Inch Nails: The Fragile – My first NIN album

Muddy Waters – All of it.

Speaking of Muddy Waters and Rollin Stones and Catfish Blues ….

Robert Petway – Thought to be the earliest recording of Catfish Blues, though possibly not the first person to sing it (there’s a whole history there, look it up, very interesting).

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – These guys are an incredible part of my life, I have to credit them for reminding me that I wasn’t broken forever. I would recommend any of their albums *even Effects of 333*

Break of Reality – I originally started listening to them because I heard some of their covers but their original music does not disappoint either.

The Dead South – A bluegrassy type band that hasn’t disappointed in the time I’ve been listening to them.

I’m going to wrap it up here because I could literally go all day.
