I reckon as long as it doesn't involve loving a member of the site you should go for it. What's the worst that can happen?

A love so free yet so burdensome
A life so exciting, yet so murderous
Emotion so concentrated, but the focus is so vague
So, how do we drift away
From the monster in the cellar that we've pretended is behaved
How do we lock the door and leave the cellar set aflame,
when we both know deep down we love that growing beast all the same
We haven't spent a whole day away from each other,
You've been a friend to me this whole time, almost like a brother.
But after this long I've realized there are things I had before that are gone
Things I can't have back because I've changed so much that it just seems wrong
It's a shame,
That that damned beast eats everything I leave behind, but who's to blame?
We're both so wrapped up in each other that everything just becomes a game
Some kind of sick and twisted game where we see how long we can keep it tame
Keep the same sad soiree soaring to stoke our fire centered in the pit of our pain
And through this we thoroughly throttle through other people's disdain
For unstated purposes, pointedly purposeless
What can be proposed to end this harsh pointlessness
I'm skilled at prose but positioning pieces of a puzzle is one of many weaknesses
And that's all this is
A frightening 4,000 piece but there's no family or friends supporting me
No previous tendencies remain in me that help me see through this endless sea
This endless sea of lost memories and things that mattered to me
All of these things nullifying any remaining buoyancy left in this sinking ferry
Fill me with my forgotten dreams
Remind me of what you used to mean
Tell me you forgive me for doing what I said I never would
For doing what I never thought I could
For further feeding the jigsaw spitting serpentine
That holds no sympathy for either you or me.

Mossy bent limb
Tendrils of prayer forest friends
Direct me to the snails and toadstools
Direct me to the falls spilling
Covering the bark the ferns the trunks the rocks and all
Find within me the shiver turning
Pine overtaking the breath
Stick figures walking abreast
A lonesome call of the deep west
Mossy bent limb
Worn as a suit tie and vest

You must become timeless
Stop convincing yourself that time is precious
Convince yourself that you are greater than worry itself
You will seem heartless
Yet unburdened
The counting of the shadows on the dock cease
And before you know why or how
Its open springs
White out roads
Blistered knuckles and the highway is shut down
There is no way through
So you boil in the shine
The wake of the levee presses against your shoulders
And you feel a cold rush pulse through
As if dropped into the deepest sound
Dark green surrounds you

Lightning

Lightning

And you spot the snow twister

You can ask how silly you look from 30,000 feet
The answer is you are invisible
Only a human presence is there
Only a mountain pass surrounded in snowpack
The shine of a semi moving through town
That same feeling you get from unearthing a brick for the first time
Seeing the ant colony exposed
Where they go
What they protect
That same feeling you get realizing our playground is much larger than we have mastered

There is just so much more

Never travel to mountains alone
Not because youll get lost
Youll always need to get lost
But dont do it anyway
Beauty is shared
When experienced alone the heart immediately yearns
The mind stirs
You want to share but there is no service
The mountains want your mantle
They want beyond your surface
And at everyones core is a necessity to feel smell see and hear stillness together
To be held in rapture
And to imprint in your mind the moment around the bend
And the music you heard as your hand was out the window
And everyones jaws drop collectively at the snow and pine trees that look like millions of teeth

I'm a blue moon vibe
Last gasp on a wild ride
An orchid
grey dreamin televised
Prompted by the stings of bees
Electrons
And crazy Gemini's

I'm the weightless
Chillin john the baptist
Baptising saviors in same streams as catfish
Cleaning the fish tank for practice
You think society is fucked
Im the desert
Youre the cactus

You should get a clue
An avalanche is motion
Where is the glue
The gravity that holds me
I am the zoo
The assortment of mammals
Navigating all the straits in a crate
Canoe up canal state wearin flannels

Youll swear you never smelled air so sweet. The smog masked by pine, sirens and mossy streets.
And all they who reach for the cloud canopy without pause will be greeted by the ice caps and their life giving jaws.
Below the barnacles and muck. Beyond the choking busses and trucks. In the heart of sapphires and seagulls.
The coldest places fuel the warmest peoples.

Wow wow wow. I can't help but feel like the theme is at least a little bit inspired by me. I got chills. Very nice.

Yesterday I was told that I resembled someone
Someone unfamiliar but somehow known
A piece of history
Part of the past but passed on in the passing days gone fast

At last I tell you I know who that someone is
After some thought that is
A thought I could spare some time for,
But that you ignored because to you time is a game, nothing but your whore

See, this man or woman I resemble isn't but one, but rather many.
You see me and you subconsciously see a plethora of blown away dreams
Things we as a society used to believe,
but that we've let decompose into grains,
Leaving those that remain to plead,
bleeding in the corner, collecting what's left with a sieve

I remind you of Bradbury
Of Ghandi
Of Tubman
Of Luther
Not only Martin but also the King
The Jr, the Jackie R, the Jimmy with a K
The auspicious, all inspiring, but ever so hated people that created
That cared
That cured
That conspired

But you hate me
Because subconsciously, you see nothing but a reflection
A reflection of progress you're uncomfortable with
A complexion of skin
A denomination that's thin
An idea that's not in

Look in the mirror
And you'll see what I mean
Look in the mirror and what do you see?

The mountain I climb
Never seems to end
It only goes on and on, ever expanding around every bend
So odd to set a goal and be right next to it, yet never be able to reach

No matter what tool,
no matter the help or the love.
this mountain doesn't forgive,
I've heard it gets more cold up above

Up above in what I used to think was the heavens.
Where angels sent avalanches and mudslides to test my vigilance
But now I understand that as the danger thickens it's just others' failed visits
The remnants of their stumbles and dead ended sentences
The only thing to commemorate the end of the ever spanning sentence..
An avalanche to pass on the struggle to the other tenants.

The tenant of struggle
A title that keeps me going
I've climbed this mountain for 17 years and it's still snowing
The winds are still blowing
Howling and howling along with the wolves never ceasing scowling

The thought of a heaven up above seems nice
But I can't help but wonder if the top of this mountain is just
more
ice

I should do homework
Goodnight
I originally hoped I wouldn't be up past midnight
But now It's one twenty five
Oh dear Jesus
Maybe I should just drown my sorrows with a box of cheez-its

Ive been dreaming of a world where everything around us is in an anxiety ridden state of catastrophic failure: wheat fields barren, seas and tides too high, a lack of compassion and caring, and a growing wild wealth disparity ride.

Ive been dreaming of escaping.
Taking pictures of what i'm making.
Evaluating my life based on how many faces i'm faking.
Put your name tag on, our time on earth is gone.
This is kmart of the future and we all got foreclosed on.
And yea, we mopped the floor.
Yea we dumped the oil.
Its puddled by the door its no big thing
Dont disrespect a disoinfectant its clouds to rain what I drop down my drain right?
Its still a street lamp ghost fanatic host creates earth or worse an gets doused behind the mine like a tendril flask vine its a shame you can name part of obnox in alk approximate distances, miles, meters, kilometers and floors...

Yea you think that school was great but now the tanks a lobster boil for the baffled window stores.

Yea you got a partner, and you took the path most travelled.
Trust the rust on metal before your steel unravels.
We're colonizing.
Goodbye breathable air, our lungs need new methods.
Say goodbye to the gravity we know 9.8 meters per second.

Ive been dreaming of the future.
My dreams are longings from the past.
Pathways never taken, and sculptures made of glass.
Saw an earth without grass.
Seers on vacation.
Thought this was a vocation?
Who are king makers in a world of fakers. finding the pro's in procrastination.
