A StandHave you ever felt like you were fighting against the world on every battlefield, with no armor and a dagger?
Like your enemies have conquered the Earth and are pressing up against you from every side?
Like no one out there has an ear for your trouble, let alone aid?
Like you have to suffer everything you're facing alone and in silence?
Like you have no reason to wake up in the morning because the day will be hell, revisited?
Like giving up, here and now.
You're not the last one left. The rest of the world may be after us, but we have allies, all of us. Stand strong, and join us, pushing back against the trials of life that are almost unbearable.
For those around us. For those we may yet influence. For ourselves. For each other. And for those we will never know, who forgot themselves and were defeated; who we lost to suicide.
We will not follow.
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
Keep in Touch!
