Bleeding Punk.

Smoky room
sweat drenched skin
feet pounding
a beer soaked floor.
Panting bodies push together
the pit swells--
we bleed Punk Rock.

The Cafe.

A crowded room,
sickly sweet aroma
of coffee
falls like ribbons
all around me.
The twang of
an acoustic guitar,
chairs scraped closer,
and we all lean in
to hear the music.

Tommorrow, or rather, later today as it's after midnight, I'll write my last diploma exam. And then I'll be done high school. FOREVER.

I find it very hard to express how I feel about this. I'm happy, boy am I ever happy to be done. But it also feels really strange and kind of sad. People that I've grown with, people that have been apart of my life for years now are suddenly going to disappear. And I might never see then again. Not that I feel like this is a terrible thing, just a thing.

Anyways, in other news, life has been it's average hectic self and it's also been full of a lot of guitar playing. My friend and I are going to be performing soon, at a little cafe a few minutes from my house. We've been practising hardcore!

I have been writing a bit too, there just hasn't been much that's blog worthy. Sorry. :D I've also been reading tons lately, more than I have since I started high school. Currently I'm plowing through my favorite book again: Scar Night by Alan Campbell. The writing is so superb, it makes me jealous. And I love all the characters; such good antiheros and antagonists. Read it if you haven't already! But save money and don't get the second and third books; they were dissapointing after the masterpiece of Scar Night. In my opinion anyways.

So yeah, that's the past little while in a nutshell. I'll be posting more writing soon I promise, and also something I've been thinking of putting up for a little while now.

Until later!

Fingers numb
from the strum
of a steel string guitar.
A mindless progression
of chords
to take my thoughts
far away.
An E minor
never sounded
any finer.

Rolling In The Deep.

So I'm back from a week of absence. The last little bit has just been crazy now that school is winding down. Tons of studying and preparing for graduation and then actually going to the ceremony. Just crazy. But a lot of fun as well! I don't normally revel in dressing up, but I really enjoyed my day of looking pretty and telling other people that they looked pretty and smiling for pictures and dancing and partying hard until the sun started peeking out from the mask of night. Maybe I'll post a picture for you all to see.

Anyways, just wanted to share this awesome music video. I was introduced to the song by a friend, who then asked me to accompany her for her final choir project. She suckered me in with the best friend thing, and now I'm learning it on the guitar, so it's all I've been listening to for the past few days. Post your thoughts about the video, I want to hear what you have to say about it.

A Bench.

A bench in dappled shade,
green lichen creeping up
worn metal arms.
I'd like to sit here
with you,
and watch
misty strangers
idle by.

The Elephant's Day.

I like acrostics. They're easy and fun to write, and in a time of pressure, they help my creative brain keep churning.
