i need a hobby and i need time and i need sleep and i need and i need
thoughts scatter like dust when you blow on it,
always a cloud to choke on-
cleaning involves discomfort, i guess,
and the whirlwind causes an inability to take the next step.

i should be growing beyond the comfortable but even the comfortable is terrifying,
masking anxiety is a powerful skill (until it wears off),
high-strung and short-wired is what broke things
but workaholic and unyielding was the snapping point
i don’t know how to repair a mind.

going to a mechanic shouldn’t end with being laughed out,
constantly convinced the world will flip over,
maybe driving an easily-flipped car is a death sentence,
maybe i should drive slower
but full-speed is to concentrate
slowing down is how to lose everything.

illogical logic-minded
24/7 battle through a day to stay on track,
it’s not simple anymore, is it, it’s not
escaping an obsessive need to be perfect
like chasing a ghost
it’s hard to hide yourself.


United States
If you knew me...

You'd know that I hate speaking in english because I never know the right things to say, and maybe it makes it sound a little less wrong if it's in another language that you can't understand. You'd know that I love the feel of syllables rolling off my tongue like water falls off a waterfall. That's probably why I talk so fast, for the feel of it and not so you'd ever understand what I'm saying.
[I whisper my secrets because they hurt to tell]

You'd know that I think that looking up into the sky makes me feel like I'm falling up and I never did like falling, so I don't look up. You'd know that dreaming is skyward and so I've forgotten how to dream. That's probably why I get so frustrated with your high hopes for the future, because I prefer to keep my feet planted firmly on the ground, but you're flying with your hopes and I'm losing sight of you.
[I ripped out my wings so I can't fly]

You'd know that I believe that love is both the most healing and deadly thing in the world, because it can break hearts (incurable) and heal them (impossible). You'd know that I wish that I can somehow get the cure for my shattered heart, without the danger of breaking again. That's probably why I'm so jealous of those who've managed to avoid the whole business of getting hurt and having to live in a state of brokenness.
[I've lost hope for myself, because I've forgotten how to love]

You'd know that I never liked going to funerals, because that's when I feel the least alive and living becomes a myth. You'd know that that's when I remember that I have a heart, and having a heart hurts way too much sometimes. That's probably why I never listen to it; I ignore my heart because half the time it only results in the kind of pain that you can't stop with medication.
[I try to forget about the other half of the time]

Personal Quote: Live.

So this is about tattoos. Obviously. While I don't have any quite yet, I am definitely getting these quotes from two incredible people tattooed onto me:

"where some try to trap you, many more are working to set you free" -Paige B.
"...and he was happy" -Kelsey R.

These were huge for me, during a very tumultuous time period of my life (about when this account started) and I cannot erase those impactful words or people. :)

However, I've always wanted poetry tattooed, be it lines or full poems, and maybe even my own words. The issue is that I really don't know/remember what I love about many writings, and maybe you guys can help. 

What poetry do you love? What lines? Whose work? Is it your own work? 

Do you have any tattoos?

Please do tell, be it via message or comment, and please link to the poem/prose you are talking of!

And happy 2014 :)
