My attempts to be creative with words and doodles. The drawings, though done by me, are borrowed concepts from more artistic minds and have served as my models. The writings are all mine. Feel free to look around and hopefully, to appreciate.
I’ll see you in another life when we are both cats. -Vanilla Sky
A little reminder from Spiritual Inspiration.
“The Unsuspecting Victim” (deer in the headlights)
I’ve thrown out your things,
closed the door,
and constantly declared you
out of my life.
there’s always an extra plate
on the table,
your favorite juice
freshly squeezed daily,
for when you feel like staying around.
Like a permanent guest
who does as he pleases
in a house he lives in
but never claimed to own,
with the keys that you took
and never gave back,
in my heart and head you come and go.
2. MY MALCOLM
He tilts his head and watches me
those sad black eyes
hoping from my every move
that I’d notice him.
A look from me is all it takes.
He wags his tail and
reaches out his paws
for a warm embrace that I don’t deserve.
It doesn’t matter what I am,
or what I have or haven’t got.
And for all I can and cannot do,
in my dog’s eyes, I can do no wrong.
In loving and caring, I find that how I do is inversely proportional to how I do not. There are no degrees as to how much —it’s either I do or not at all.
—Ad astra per alas porci (To the stars on the wings of a pig)
3. a haiku
No past, no future.
Just here and now, you and me.
This is forever.
4. a haiku
Tell me what goes on
in that pretty little head.
Do you think of me?
5. a haiku
When you come around
I don’t look and I don’t speak.
You make me nervous.
6. LOVE MONSTER
Of all the monsters
under my bed,
has messed my head,
And so I shot it dead.
(I mean the monster, not my head).
Dream the big, absurd, ambitious dreams. When others laugh, question, or doubt, BELIEVE. Trust in these dreams, smile as they manifest, then move on and dream more. Do not limit your dreams to the conveniently doable; This defeats the point and power of dreams. Dreams have to challenge us and be bigger than our current selves because that’s how we grow and move forward. Just because you haven’t got a clue on how to make your dreams happen does not mean that they can’t happen. Everything begins with a dream, so we must dream extraordinarily, shamelessly, and fearlessly.
I’ve said it now.
I’ve given my word.
You know me; I never give
unless I’m ready
take it back.
So tell me— how do my words taste?
Because I will never
Without a word, without a sound,
without a clue as to where I’m bound.
Without a fight, without a cry,
without a hint of a good-bye.
Without a need or desire to explain,
without regard for any pain.
Without a kiss, without an embrace,
just silently. And without a trace.
It’s funny how we never say
the things that are worth the most.
We leave things hanging and open
and pretend we don’t care. Or
that we don’t matter.
It’s funny how we fight the force
that compels us to be together.
When what we could have
is what most would yearn and kill for.
But you and I (more you than I),
we just let it pass us by.
People spend their lives
looking for their place.
While early on, I’ve known
mine is outside
Whatever I behold
is never truly mine. Or I might be claimed
but never truly owned
—it’s not really my family
not really my love
not really my life.
It’s a perpetual state of unbelong.
I am always surrounded
but often so alone.
12. “DON’T SLEEP”
Time and place is never an issue. Whenever and wherever, you drive miles and cross highways for a few minutes with me. And always, always, I pray my company is worth the trouble.
Tonight we’re under the stars with our random thoughts and odd moments. The world is a joke to us so we laugh at it and at the people in it. But amidst the hustle and the bustle, in this life and in any other, we are meant to be friends.
I find comfort in you. You are complex, detached, and sick in the head —just like me. In our own world, strange is the norm and crazy needs no explanation. “I thank you for this sanctuary.”
—To absurdities, smoke, and open skies; May our taciturn friendship be for all times.
