Please excuse the comma splices, tense changes, verbosity, etc. I was just a youngin' and now I realize the error of my grammatical ways. Plus, I preferred the flowery and descriptive writing styles of the early 19th century and beyond rather than the short, journalistic post-Hemingway-style of writing. I love intense imagery and descriptions in general. Still deciding whether I should edit my old poetry for grammar mistakes or take the Beatnik approach and fuck it.

Disclaimer: I only wrote/write on bad days. Grand days have never inspired me enough to write as I've always used writing as an outlet. A majority of my poetry is angsty, dark humored, or depressing, however, I don't have depression, and I'm not self-destructive or suicidal by any means. My writing is mostly a tenfold representation of the kind of day I was having at the time. Embellishing the realities of my bad days on paper helped turn them into good days. Not sticking my head into an oven anytime soon (or ever, actually). :P +10 points if you got the reference.

Thanks for reading! Feel free to comment

Mind, Body, and Spirit

My mind, inhabited by thoughts of love,
Daring to escape in the form of passion,
My thoughts revealed to everyone around me,
Dexterity, what I need most.

My body, cloaked from the world,
Physique veiled from plain-eyed view,
Hiding behind a shaggy burlap sack,
Allure, what I lack.

My spirit, homely and encased in sorrow,
Happiness lacking, grotesquely fulfilled,
Walking on water, unapproachable dream,
Spontaneity, my better half.

Are you sure you're only 14? That poem is very mature for 14. I think you have a lot of promise. I don't usually browse thru blogs....but I was bored today, and came upon yours. Very nice.

Thank You for your comment, it's much appreciated. :)

If you don't mind me asking, how old are you?
