Rape me with that one sweet kiss
You taste so good swimming in my stomach
Fucking up my insides
You know how it feels, yeah
To be burning inside
Your fire, never touch
never come close to this...
I'll find out, yeah, it feels nice
I cried out, and told to quiet down
Bled out in the safety of your body
I don't need this (not anymore)
And I know you want to hurt me now
Go ahead and break this
I'm not afraid of you
So I've gotten this close
You sick bastard, what have you done?
Closed your eyes to the dark
that you said you knew so well
I'll stack it up into the furnace
Thank God I've got you
Calm down, yeah, I could come down
Come clean in the end
But if I spill? what would you do?
(Hide me) What the fuck is going on?
lay me down beside you
I'll cut you out of this
And I'll find out, yeah, what
I'm tired of missing you
(How tightly you'd hold me)
and coming back again...
fucking with my insides
How does it feel
Burning, this flesh inside?
And I'll fight it
But even I'll feed you this

The Unspoken Word
It's funny you know, time to time we all stop and say "What the fuck?" but never really get nor search for an answer. We simply feel better after saying it and move on. But what if I could give you an answer for every question you've ever had or will ever have. I'm pretty sure you just rolled your eyes, mummbled something in your head or in breath about me being a wacko. But be that as it may I urge you to hear me out for just the moment. In life you come to the cross road and make a choice, choices being the very driving force of all forces of nature. Taking hold of the choice and moving with it is like picking up a fumbled football and running for the endzone. You don't even need to open your eyes. Just run and hope to make it. Like many of these moments however there are other forces that will try to slow you. Some might be unseen, bareing down upon your form with such force they would topple buildings. Others are seen and quickly avoided. And when you are taken down, or reaching yo

It was a weird feeling, being alone in that place.

I was driving through Long Island to get to the ferry, rushing to get there, speedily driving to ensure that I had not wasted my money on a journey I could not even make. The yellow lines became blurs as the road was left behind. I began to sweat, my heart raced, and my eyes quaked with both anxiety and fear.

Alas, I made it onto the ferry, pulling into the last spot available right as a massive blizzard began to fall to the earth. I got out of my car, ran up to the second deck, and paid the man behind the glass an astronomical amount of money just to take a 1 hour boat ride. I thought to myself: was it always this expensive? I got lost for a bit wondering about this, but I returned from my digression after I realized that I had spent the last of my money and emptied out my wallet.

To cool down, I went outside, deciding that it was worth to cold to have a space to think. I was the only one there, the cold wind biting at my face and the snow slowly dampening my newly cut hair. My peacoat and suit were not enough to protect me from the pain that winter was providing, but I needed to cool off. The ride was chaotic enough as it was. I needed the peace that one rarely finds in New York traffic.

It was here that it set in. I had not been on this ferry for over a decade, not since my last trip to Long Island in my adolescence. As I remembered that time period I began to well up... I had wedged myself between two family members as the cold was too much to bear. I then ran inside to get money from one of my grandparents to buy a pretzel.

I really wish I remembered more... But this is tangential to the story I am telling. Like the manifest content of a dream, the memory is not as important as the latent underpinnings. The memory is not the main actor on the stage. Like the irrelevance of the content of a dream, I became fixated on the process of being in the cold. Here I was, almost two decades later, and I was on the ferry alone. There I was, standing at the edge of a ferry, in a five hundred dollar suit and a slicked back hair cut that was being ruined by the melting snow, and it all set in.

For the first time, I realized that I was no longer a young man. I was no longer a child, an adolescent, or even a 'young adult,' whatever that may mean. My younger years had long passed.

And in that cold wind, I realized that the melting snow was not the only thing that was dampening my face, as the tears slowly rolled down into my beard, freezing instantly, then falling to the deck. I quickly wiped them away, looked over the water to the Massachusetts coast, and smiled.

I stood there for the entire trip, stuck in a haze, but relishing it. There was something new about this that I wanted to explore.

After an hour, I returned to my car, and I drove off. I left the pain and smiles of that experience behind on that boat and began my new trip, my new path, my new journey.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It has been a while since I have logged onto this site. I took this trip two weeks ago and was actually debating whether or not to post my story. But as I perused through my notes and emails, I decided to look at all the people that I have followed (and who have followed me) since my joining oh-so-long ago. Of particular note would be my old friends, x-summerxtwilight-x, IdleRage, tootsiespeedwagon, to-my-dears, stillxoustiders, xxseveredxtiesxx, and one of my oldest friends, QwithoutaU).

Like me, you have all grown up, matured, and enhanced your art. As I searched through galleries and read about your lives, I have felt privileged.  Keep on living the life that you want, do not wake up in the morning with regret, and choose your own path.

I think I will log on more regularly now. Since I am no longer doing photography, maybe I will simply write, and hope that people will find some meaning in the experiences I can share.

It's going well, how about yourself? I know I haven't been around much and I really do hope to change that soon.

As for submitting new photos it will be a while. I am currently drowning in work and barely have enough time to get outside let alone take photos. Hopefully it will all end soon :D
