    Yes please.

    It's hiding - it's shy - like me - we are elusive and hard to understand - but we dance from word to word - and wonder why you won't dance with us.

    Well, I wanted to know what people thought of a poem that I read. I kinda don't wanna post it in that other thread so I'll just post it here. What do you think of this poem?:


    Heart burst

    Mind scrape

    Soul break

    Life fake

    Shadows

    Drowning

    Gasping for a breath of life

    How is your soul, dear?

    Living?

    Shake it up

    Wake it up

    Take it up

    Out of this empty pit

    Of soul cracked stillness

    White

    Blank

    Confusion

    Murky reality

    Whatís left?

    Push through

    Burst

    Ceiling

    Chasing peace like a rabbit

    Never caught

    Welded to that which

    Must be let go of

    <3 it!
    You can't always do it right, you can always do what's left.

    Thoughts rearrange. Familiar now strange. All my skin is drifting on the wind.~

    The following is my favorite poem written by Charles Bukowski

    Ignis Fatuus

    The only solitude is sleep or death
    We were not clever enough
    Kind to others and cruel to self when self asked for mercy and was denied
    The holiest privacy remains waiting on us
    And all that was misunderstood or abandoned will come together
    Let my failure be your fortune
    This that was broken in careless error
    Let it be known that to know your own death is to die twice
    Once really
    And then hardly at all
    Let it be known that there is nothing as ugly in all its tangents as the human beast
    A trick set against the blood of your soul
    Let it be known that solitude is the only mercy and the only lover
    Let it be known that a man need not be Christ to be crucified
    Let it be known that a man can be crucified each day, each moment, each breath
    To sleep and awaken and be tormented again
    Let it be known that a man can die
    And die
    And die
    And still feel the pain
    And know he is dead
    And still feel the pain
    And know there is nothing he can do
    And still
    Feel
    The pain
    Let it be known
    That the temples are nothing and the bells are nothing and fame is
    nothing and victory is nothing and sex is nothing
    And that solitude brings madness
    And the crowd brings madness
    And drinks and eats the body like a tiger
    That there is no voice to speak with
    No ear to hear
    Let it be known that there will be other men such as I
    Lifted for the Lion's mouth
    Burned down by false loves
    Tricked by kindness
    Misled by intellect
    Dizzied by posy
    Sacrificed for profit
    Used as cheap labor
    And these will be the kindest of happenings compared to what will
    enter the eye and ear and the brain and seep to the innards to begin their death work
    I pity all such brothers of mine who will follow me in the centuries
    Unable to love because there is nothing to love
    Unable to kill because there is nothing alive
    Forever hanging and bleeding and dizzied by the beast human
    The walls the gardens the sun the flowers the kisses the flags the seas the animals the food the liquors the paintings the symphonies
    All uselessness
    Let it be known that most men love when they can see
    And they see each other
    And they love this because they see very little
    Let it be known that I am bitter and damned and tired and useless
    Let it be known that when the final hope goes there remains but a
    staring at the dance and a watching the feeble intercourse of the idiots
    with very little note taking
    Let it be known that I am dead but there is no anger
    Let it be known that most men are dead many years before burial
    Let it be known that many men die in childhood
    That many men are born dead
    Although their parts move and they make sound and grow and advance
    into adult behavior
    And do things of civilization
    Let it be known that these men never existed and that their funerals
    were extreme farce
    And also the dead tears for the already dead
    Let it be known that the worms themselves were nearer to truth and
    that they did not cry
    Let it be known that birth is not holy, that death it not holy
    that life is not holy
    Let it be known that I have bled without crowns
    That I will bleed in a moment
    That I will bleed forever
    Red red red
    And the hawks will dance within my bones and rejoice
    Let it be known that I do not die for man's sins but that I die for what man is
    And for what I almost was
    They,
    Too little of anything
    And myself
    Lifted enough to see the horror
    To sicken and go mad and wilt
    Do not take as personal
    What I say about life
    Altogether
    Or man altogether
    Unless
    On another plane
    You consider yourself
    A defender of life
    And of man
    Which is only another natural weakness of the species
    Like a rat guarding its nest
    For which
    I cannot hold you totally to blame
    The only solitude is death
    But not this death
    Not
    This
    Death
