Quite astounding!! Keep writing!

Here's a recent bunch of lines I wrote
one inevitably comes to a crossroads
to a crossworlds
where freedom is a burden
souls on a chessboard
shoving me into a lie
the lie which is the vulgar
world we perceive
"it is easy to grow crazy"

Thanks at1. I like that line "where freedom is a burden". Reminds me of our mortality. In the end our freedom or choice burdens us with reaping what we sow, even if that's nothing.

i walked out bottle in bag
bag in hand
there i sat
watching the world go by
i sat on the curb and watched

there i saw a woman
while among many people
this woman she was different
she had black hair
like the feathers of a raven
the hue of coal
or the blackness of the devil's heart
her skin was pale and milky
like ivory keys
she wore a necklace with a charm
that hung above her bosom
her black top contrasted
with the white of her skin

i took a drink from my bottle
as i watched her
warm dark goodness

i looked up from the sound
of a car horn blaring
i watched the woman
as she approached a carriage
she reached inside
she picked up the baby
and held it for a moment
she spoke something
to the baby
she replaced it in the carriage
then i swear she turned
and looked right at me

i took a long pull from the bottle
i swallowed it
and drank again

i saw another woman approach
the carriage
she reached in for the baby
within a moment's time
was all it took
and the woman held the baby
wailing with the despair
of a thousand childless mothers

i drank again from the bottle

she walked with purpose
but with hesitation
intent but with remorse
as though her bidding
and her soul
were in conflict

she approached me
and i swear i drained that bottle
like stars in a black hole
she reached to touch me
cupping my cheek and chin
in her hand
her touch was cold
i looked into her eyes
eyes of black
so dark and empty
i stared into them long enough
long enough to see the spark

"that's all?" i asked
"come with me"
her voice was the sound of life
like a complex symphony
sweet as candy

i looked and saw myself
bottle clutched in my hand
no one seemed to notice
the woman still screamed aloud
holding the baby against her breasts
people went about their day
car horns continued to blare
no one seemed to notice

"can i take that with me"
"if it will help"

her eyes were dark and empty
her touch was cold
as she took my hand into hers
and a coldness washed over me
but that voice
it was so ethereal and soft
like a thousand sweet voices
whispering in your hear
id follow that voice
to hell itself if there be one

In my words it's describing what I saw and read in Neil Gaimen's words and Mike Dringenberg and Malcolm Jones III's art in Sandman. I've just recently started reading the collected comics from the library after a long time friend has recommended it to me. The writing is my personal description of his personification of Death in the form of a female woman as she goes about her task of retrieving those whose time has come.

Patrick Cassidy's Vide cor Meum and some Sangaria

"i cannot find what it is
what it is
that everyone seems to have
something that i cant attain"

"perhaps it is not yours
to attain"
her hair seemed black
as the night
her voice so soft
it was in my head not my ears

"then why does it seem
as though something is missing?
why cant i accept that?"

her eyes shone like diamonds
in the black coal
her face showed something
pity? sympathy?
her lips quivered a bit
deep red
like a burgandy wine
she seemed sad
"you expect to much"

in the softness of the breeze
with her head hung
with her hands prone
to her side
her beautiful hair
dancing in the wind
her silver necklace charm
caught the moon's light
"you wont accept your lot"

"i guess not"

"you are not just any individual
you are what fate deems
your acceptance of this
does not hinder the inevitable outcome"
i think may be she was sad this time

"im afraid mi'lady"

"here let me help"
she came close to me
the wind blew her hair before her
i could see her charm now
a shinning sliver cross
with a circle on top
"i know many things about you
i must
it is my fate"
i felt the neck of a bottle
in my hand

"how did you accept it?"
i looked down to a open bottle
i filled my stomach good

"i take no joy in what i do"
she grasped the hand i had
around the bottle
"but it is necessary
you while in yourself are different
at the same time arent
i await everyone"

"its kind of you
to assure
to be loving
to understand
to surrender"
i wanted more
the bottle seemed never
to empty
"a pretty and kind
woman
it makes it easier"

"are you ready?"

"can i have another drink?"

"its my gift to you
it is unending"

i took her hand
and though her touch
chilled to the bone
it seemed to warm my heart
and gave me courage

the unknown was before me
she
who had done this a
myriad of times
she
she was still kind
she was still loving
it was as if my anglea was here

i looked at the bottle in my hand
even at the end
the very end
i could not escape

Why is it whenever Im in a hospital I can't sleep at night? My son has his procedure at 7. It's 330 now.

Starting a new job Monday. Better pay, hours and working environment. For once in 2 years I'm in a win win situation,

Why don't hospitals have bars like airports do. I could use one now.

I have no idea, myself, but my stay in the hospital was the best sleep I've had in my life! Maybe it was the drugs, I don't know. :think:
