I take my hand, lift my fingers one by one in the air.
Grip the pencil, put lead to paper,
But no words come.
How can I speak?
How can I grasp at the existence,
When the existence is but a figment
Glistening in the stream of light that peeks through the door?
My windows shut,
My desk cleared, the clutter of torn up and crumpled sheets scatter the floor,
I sit in darkness.
I want it to exist.
I want this so bad, I grip the pencil so hard,
But heavy eyelids,
How can I speak?
How can I grasp at the existence
When the existence is but a figment,
A humming, vibrating of the electricity pulsing through the walls?
It’s all too much.
We sit together,
My thoughts and I –
Ready for the world,
Ready to be ready.
Another paper tossed before it’s been soiled.
A blank slate, smooth wood –
Smudges start to case the surface, words pour out:
Anything I can’t say, everything I won’t say.
This desk is not a desk,
It is a monument to words unwritten,
To the light bulb that stays unlit
As the car lights outside pulse between the slits in my windowpane.
There is no need,
Except moving forward, breaking lead and heading on.
Heavy, arm is so heavy.
Words are so heavy.
But this desk, this sanctuary, has seen it all,
Mirrored-reflections from the back of a page.
What need for words?
Existence is free to just be.

My tears greet me as they fall
“What’s new?” They ask
But my answer remains the same
Pusheen the cat making some chemistry.
That cat is not wearing safety goggles, he hasn’t even bothered to clean up that spilled solvent, and he is holding that Erlenmeyer flask way to close to his face.
Pusheen the Cat, more like Pusheen the limits of lab safety
The Hemsworth brothers, Tom Hanks, and Meryl Streep star in a 1:00 “Charlie Bit My Finger” spoof
is thiS FOR REAL DID THEY ACTUALY TAKE THE TIME TO DO THIS I CAN NOT HANDLE
What if the Doctor’s name is just something like
You mean like this
Me: lol #foreveralone
