    I never thought he was a god, that night;
    more like a velvet-pelted beast with stars
    dripping as he rose out of the sea
    to arch and show the world his awful height.

    ..
    ..

    But when I felt his breath caress my face
    and move my hair and mingle with my own,
    I breathed then in the presence of a lord
    and stilled as if being held in an embrace.

    ..
    ..

    The rumbling of the surf became his voice
    resounding in the marrow of my bones,
    shaking all my memories and thoughts
    until I was attending without choice.

    ..
    ..

    And without choice I was soon swept away;
    gone completely, while the night remained
    luminous and moving, filled with being
    of potent darkness brighter than the day.

    ..
    ..

    Then he revealed a truth surpassing sight:
    that light is drawn up from his font of dark,
    and strewn like starry diamonds on black felt
    our lives float on the living breath of Night.

    If I Could Change the World, We Would Have Nothing.


    Can We change the world?
    Or do us silly starving boys and girls just feed into the lie?
    Should we reach for the stars knowing we can’t trust blue sky?
    a simple atmospheric reflection. Nothing worth touching.
    And those stupid fucking stars we want to get our greedy hands on...
    They are probably already dead.
    And Im next and your next.
    Shooting from moment to moment
    with no clue to where we’re going
    closing our eyes for the ride.
    trusting the forces pushing and pulling
    because there are so many things flying by
    my head
    I just don’t know what to believe in.

    What if...
    capitalism didn't define the measurement of status
    what if we could feel universally loved
    and respected
    without all the bullshit
    without the effort
    without money
    without possessions
    would you still want them?


    I wonder what we could accomplish with all that extra time....

    Some Room, Downtown.

    Some Room,
    Downtown​



    Some room, downtown
    We walked. I met him
    With switchblades and
    The softest screams. Oh,
    And I assure you
    The police wont catch me.

    He laid under blue stars,
    In a pool of remains, that
    Remind professionals of
    Vivid Summer serials.
    His eyes were open. He
    Was staring at Heaven.

    Two nickels in each pocket.
    Pennies covered his chest.
    Paper demons: same old reason.

    Run with passion untold.
    Hide in nature's crevices.

    When they see you, let
    Them hear your rebel.

    Let no one hear,
    Burn them in a box of years. ​

    everything is vague, and it's meant to insinuate that way.
    all that appears, is not what one has.
    One never touched it,
    felt...
    never Loved it,
    enough.

    tonight-​


    "before-I-let-you-go-away...can I get a kiss tonight..."

    the song plays again, but at the wrong time
    unctuously speaking;
    not all are the same-nobody's the same,
    and for a moment we see eachother differently.

    it started to become a swindling change
    that didn't take long to descend.
    we look at eachother in the eyes of c h e a t e r s
    who never win
    -I said I'd be there-for anything
    and now you found your way out of it.
    Unsure of who's liable for the offense
    we give up conflicting, on everything

    when we almost gave up on us...

    flawed my heart a mark
    as I tore apart yours
    wanting to be calm I don't wanna believe in how things
    just up and changed (except that is, a reason but which)
    you're so collected except for your feelings
    me, taking it all in
    "so is it like that-you don't care about us anymore?"
    next I'm doin all I said I wouldn't do
    deploring body language interfered by words
    ...everything I hear is richocheting.

    he waits for me to grow tired
    gathered into a broad chest with bear-like arms
    how strong was this? if love makes one destructive?
    in this case I was the effect under a cause
    I feel should have never happened.
    maybe you anticipated my reaction,
    and let yourself be my target
    we allowed little things to grow us apart
    almost...
    now we begin, again.

    everything is lucid, and it was meant to insinuate that way.
    all that appears to us, is what we have.
    I have touched it,
    I have felt...
    we always loved,
    we care too much.

    this isn't about cheating on someone-it's simply about being there for someone you care about.

    Learn at your own expense,
    a lesson is cheap.
    From the precipice, leap,
    or back away slowly and
    uncover the message beneath.
    Don’t get what you think,
    and what you know, mistaken.
    Silent moments taken
    leave your flesh within reach.
    There’s respite for each
    of us once we’re resting in peace.
    We bring home the bacon
    with the aroma baked in,
    suggesting a feast,
    but domestic receipts
    don't account for deficits reaped
    across borders we violate.
    Across the board, we deny the state
    of affairs is desperately bleak.
    I try my best just to breathe
    when my heart and my chest
    are congested with grief.
    Some question belief.
    Others find solace in blind faith
    and the quest is complete.
    Death doesn’t sleep
    and even madness has a method to keep.
    We wrestle with fleeting moments,
    knowing the vessel is weak.
    So bless the deceased and get moving.
    Time is of the essence.
    Repeat.
    Time is of the essence.
    Release.

    rather win a race to a man with a full stomach, then to one who is hungry.

    (doesn't look like Im going to win anyway, so I suppose its not relevant but ya know what I am saying.)

    ^hmmmm good point

    I'm starting to join you in that regards....with no commitments you have nothing but empty words and broken promises....

    I'm sorry to those of you who put in effort in this....my vision for this SLAM was shattered along with everything else I try to do around here

    people just don't come through....I dont know what else to say?

    I will follow up and finish this slam for what its worth

    peace
