I Followed The Red Brick Road & Took The Blue Pill

Accounted experiences that have left a stain on my minds surface.

A Thousand Pieces to Get To You

A Thousand Pieces to Get To You

This is around the time I went under
The feeling of sinking down to the darkest of blues
The claustrophobic feeling of not being able to breathe
Whilst my body kept bringing me lower and lower
My eyesight was searching for light but failing and their function started to differ.
This was the time I needed to think
I needed to think clear and I needed to breathe
To free this guidance and create my fins

Why wait to live, when you can live.

—Blue Laidley

I lost my virginity the sensible way: breaking it at 18 years old with a person I was in a two year relationship with at the time. But sometimes I just wish I broke it the spontaneous way when I had the chance: in a Jacuzzi on the roof of a lavish hotel in Miami which was across the road from and overlooked South Beach, to a guy named Jason who I instantly had a sexual desire for after meeting him for 15 minutes; 3 days before my 16th birthday.

One Year Anniversary 

One Year Anniversary 

Noted

Today I found out a few things. I knew the “things” all along to be honest, I just hid them away with denial and hope. But hope never lasts and fades quicker than the rain dries, so I guess I was stupid for pretending I was stupid in not knowing. But I know now. It’s confirm. The ashes have burned, the graves have turned, and “hopefully” my lesson is learned.

Anna Blume

Anna Blume is a visual poetry about the lust of a man chasing a woman. The story takes on surreal journey dictated by the mind of the poet. Lust and ingestion, disguised in love, drive the two characters to an end where love turns to be a very lonesome and strange place. The film is based on and inspired by the emblematic love poem from 1919 “An Anna Blume” by Kurt Schwitters.

Salt Fish

The salt fish leaves a stench in the fridge as it works in only moderate conditions. This humid weather gets to everything eventually and I leave it to share an odour with the rest of the food while I go level below to the freezer, as ice cold as you’d expect it to be. I satisfyingly pull out a green bottle from its contents and break the cap open with my bare teeth. That bitter taste bubbling in my mouth sets me back to the sofa I slouch upon as I drift in and out of reality to the world where my own imagination lay.

"I AM SO SORRY" (2011, Short Film)

This is the most powerful short film I’ve seen.

"FUCK YOU!"

image

I was wishing for such a long time for you to come and hold my hand. I would hold my arm out in front of me just hoping for you to come by to take it in just a few shorts seconds. The love I gained from knowing your name was far greater than I’d ever experienced and your eyes would set me back a century at a time.

For you though, I was nothing more than nothing. You wouldn’t even look twice if I fell down dead in front of your beautiful eyes. And because of this, although I so desperately wish to fuck you, all I can ever bring myself to say is “Fuck you!”

Misconception (The Blue Of The Water Is Just A Reflection Of The Sky)

A damaging day

A damaging day. Oh, how it is a damaging day. I don’t know whether it’s my body getting sick of it, the negativity it’s brought, or even my age, but I cannot seem to handle it. I have crumbled.

Gloomy, grey, clouds at their darkest, newly furnished. The chilly air and the smell of airs moisture, the whining birds, the statue trees, the boring view, the bland appeal; the awareness of how the same world seemed different but the same and nothing less than exciting. All we need now is the rain. The rain will be the perfective ending to this predicament.

I have half a reason to believe this: the weather is all because of me, me and my downfall. To be honest I shouldn’t be so hard on myself as I never said I was quitting full stop but I liked the feeling that it was heading that way. Yes, once in a while, say every drastic rainy day now and then I thought I would dabble, but I haven’t. I wanted to carry this on.  I wanted to free my mind and be free of all things bad. I want to be one of the very few young bodies that have no substances in them.

I just feel like a train wreck. If I could slip myself from under my covers and step outside the way I am dressed now, with nothing but a pair of knickers on, I doubt people would acknowledge my existence. I feel and look so in tune with this weather’s mood and bringing that I could blend right in like a tree hiding behind another tree.

Both noses are blocked; I always seem to forget the lost lasting effects of this. It was good… well it was ok, but was it worth it?

No I don’t think it was to be honest.

I didn’t go places as it wasn’t strong enough, and if I was still taking k on a regular basis and someone gave me it in my sleep, I would not have the fuzziest about it. I’d wake completely clueless. The process was nice though as well as the taste of it. It’s always the strength with me. It is always mixed. 100% guarantee but you just don’t know the ones that are too mixed. Too mixed to do anything. That’s what fucks me off. Its like sex without an orgasm… any orgasm. Like taking a shit without hearing the splash. An award is handed out but the reward is taken so in my books it’s worthless. They say, “be grateful for what you get!” Hmmm well I’m sure they wouldn’t say that in this situation. I would have preferred nothing. The snow should stay in Alaska while the sun chooses its holiday here.
