Excerpt from "Talk to Strangers"
Maybe you’ll find the cycle’s end You’re back where you began But come this time around You’ll have someone to hold your hand Who prays for you, who’s there for you Who sends you love and light Exposes you to parts of you That you once tried to fight And come this time around You’ll choose to walk a different path You’ll embrace what you turned...
Octopus with tusks? Yes, I think so.– Michael Kessler
I Woman is born from roses, whose petals are fair and soft. Yet still, to the touch… Even the bravest of men fear thorns. II Though original sin claims Eve was at fault, The curiosity of a girl sparks the temptation in a boy. In Adam’s fall, we sinned all, but learned to love as well. III A woman is beautiful. IV A woman is almost as beautiful as her lies. V There are...
The bandit. The bandit wasn’t scary. He wasn’t mean or rude. He wasn’t a bully. He wasn’t the villain. Yet, he was the bandit. No one knew him by “the bandit” but everyone knew that that was what he was. Background information is key. The bandit wasn’t the best looking, but wasn’t the worst. He wasn’t the meanest, but he wasn’t the...

We are the short-story generation. We have no great epics, nor timeless playwrights. Impatience is our virtue and we have no time for novels. And yet we are altogether entirely unique, as compared to our ancestors. This perhaps, may be the first generation of individuals. Without sounding hypocritical, we are a mass of singularity. We are a nation of youthful reinvention. Music, poetry,...

There Once Was a Love...
I recall rows and rows of tomes on shelves. Little mysteries between their dust jackets. I remember a princess. She would shine her light on me from time to time. This princess of stars, this beauty, this fair faced female: she kept watch on my heart. The sounds of sadness made light in my ears by her soft voice. Whispers and laughter. I was wrapped up in everything that was you and I. Twice did...
Manic 3 AM
Manic 3 AM is when you get wasted on tunes and twitter Manic 3 AM is when you lose time and forget what the outside of a laptop is. Manic 3 AM is getting broken up with and finding solace in isolation…at least for tonight. Manic 3 AM is making resolutions, breaking resolutions, and adding clauses in fine print. Manic 3 AM is reconnecting with a friend you never had but once saw in a 3x5...
I’ve decided to just stop facebooking for a while. It’s a waste of time and is the cause of a whole lot of stress for me at the moment. While all of my posts on tumblr will go to my facebook, I’m not commenting or liking one, single, worthless thing!! If you really want to contact me, call me, or text me. Or send me a message on facebook and I’ll get back to you. ...

Let it Be Known, Conan for King.
We all know who the true king of Late Night is. Is it the one with the enormous chin? No. The receding hairline, glasses, and unabashed liberal glib? No. The young, newcomer that is bringing a fresh innocence to the game? No. When you think Late Night you think on-the-spot comedy. You think entertainment that you just have to stay up to watch. You think backdrops that resemble Super Mario. You...
How to Bury Love
1. Foolishly fall in love with a fair faced female. 2. Spend an extended period of time with said female, saying sweet things to succulent smiles. 3. Get broken up with. 4. Listen to indie music. 5. Listen to more indie music. 6. Dwell. 7. Yup, more indie music. 8. If at this point you are still in love, repeat steps 1-7 until you forget that person. 9. If you are still in love now, well...
I’ve just started listening to the band, Metric, and I’ve got to say, I’m impressed. It’s been a while since a female lead could keep my attention. I remember when “that band” was the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Metric pushes the limit on indie/pop music with their exhilirating beats, riffs, and lyrics. They made a big noise in 2009 with their single, “Help...
I am going to paint on a smile and play the fool. Let me entertain you, the masses while I drown on the inside. You see I am that which is never missed, yet always sought after. A shoulder, a hug; the fool. Yet, at the same time I am the lover to those whose hearts are weak. Might I pray upon fair, the innocent, the lovely? If that, in doing so, my soreness be lightened? Aye, I am a bandit of the...
