RANT OF THE WEEK

“they hear nothing”
By mtc

They hear nothing when their eyes are wider shut than clam shells.

An homage made to Stanley Kubrick who met with a mysterious end

Now evil enters our lives and all we can think is to return to the usual as fast as we can. An actor returning to the stage

Know thy words before you speak. Spontaneity is marvelous but words can really hurt you. Nano particles filter in and the cinders sting the eyes with burning sensations so tears run down our wet cheeks. Leaving behind pathways of streaks blinding in their destruction of our beauty, real or surface.

Our Consciousness is altered and we follow the world into slavery bought by the masters of our universe. Those with the money. The known bandits of the 1%.

Our Masters return with Unbroken chains to bind to the world order of newness. We all become the same.

Never know imagination or daydreaming thoughts. They take you out of place and out of step.

Worlds we build our minds now dismiss as illusions. What do we really want in our own minds. Not what was fed to us.

Realness has been lost. And now The fantasy has begun  © jkm

“Horrors of Waiting”
By Madison Taylor
22nd April 2009

The horrors of waiting for death
It claims us in its own time
In the time between time
Torture wracks the body with tension
Shatters the nerves
Until all rattles apart.

soothing starts when letting go
Dying
Leaving the body behind
Setting the mind free
The soul will sail out
on wings like a bird of love
Finding peace after waiting
when time disappears
Release is found.

“Has a New Life Been Granted Me?”
By Madison Taylor
29th April 2009

Has a New Life Been Granted Me?
Has a new life been born?
Awakening an energy
I forgot
The feelings for

Breathing in air clean
No feelings of expelling pain
Or the ability
To be attracted
To the sustenance
That maintains
Or excels life

I felt death tap my shoulder
Alerting me to its impatience
It was a battle
I felt loss circling my life
Pulling it away from me

Not suicidal
More the feeling of demise
Was on its own
Nothing in me
Was trying to participate

My struggle was to beat it out
Before it could claim
My weakening flesh

Somehow my angels
Pulled together their power
And rescued me
They did
Temporarily
But hopeful

Is the promise within
I will make it beyond
Tomorrow
And the next day
Will care for itself
Building up my defenses
Against
That which wants me
So insistently

Always playing at
Forcing my final
Surrender

I am a survivor
And I don’t
And won’t give in
Or up
Easily

“Roll the Dice” by Charles Bukowski [Short Film]

creative musings [dragon]
Roll the Dice

Poem by Charles Bukowski

A Short Film

Post by Jennifer Kiley

Post Saturday 18th October 2014

Extremely important & wise words spoken in video. Charles Bukowski words awaken the senses. A Call to Self. Do It. Do It. All the Way.

The poetic words being spoken with the background of the video carry the viewer along down the road with Mr. Bukowski as spoken by Tom O’Bedlam.

Let yourself be absorbed by the flow. <3 jkm

All the Way | A Charles Bukowski Poem | By Willem Martinot

Roll the Dice
by Charles Bukowski

if you’re going to try, go all the
way.
otherwise, don’t even start.

if you’re going to try, go all the
way.
this could mean losing girlfriends,
wives, relatives, jobs and
maybe your mind.

go all the way.
it could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.
it could mean freezing on a
park bench.
it could mean jail,
it could mean derision,
mockery,
isolation.
isolation is the gift,
all the others are a test of your
endurance, of
how much you really want to
do it.
and you’ll do it
despite rejection and the worst odds
and it will be better than
anything else
you can imagine.

if you’re going to try,
go all the way.
there is no other feeling like
that.
you will be alone with the gods
and the nights will flame with
fire.

do it, do it, do it.
do it.

all the way
all the way.

you will ride life straight to
perfect laughter, its
the only good fight
there is.

“To the Light Shining ”
By Madison Taylor
7th April 2009

To the light shining
the phantom ghosts gliding
streaming
beaming
knowing time is nigh
night filled with darkness

dreaming
waking the dead
to meet their destiny
the truth
in words
will be spoken

questions will be asked
the guilty will arise
facing
defacing
lies with memories still alive
now is time for the knowing

be prepared
don’t be scared
unless lies you tell
bear on these proceedings
turning death
to live again

“Depression”
By Madison Taylor

31st March 2009

Depression
I have forgotten the feeling
It has been silent so long
For me time’s length
Is unmeasurable
It could be a moment
One hour
One minute
A second later
I just have not been feeling it

Sadness
And
Grief
Have passed my doorway

And returned

Too many times
Depression
Sticks around

Waiting

A slip will come
Darkness will fall
Demons
Real and false
images
Presenting
The worse
Routing

Through the mind

Favorite is to add confusion
Blocking out the heart
The emotions of the blind
The senses of the mind

They leave you to debate

Is it now?
Do I do it now?
