Quote – “The Superiority of Altruism” – 10/30/2020

“There is rarely a person who could make themselves small enough, to make another large. By unloading oneself of material burden, one reveals their heart.

Philosophy – “The Artist and the Politician” – 10/28/2020

“Why should art be a thing of chaos, when it is a thing of order? Is it not a creation, revealing order, opposite from a causation that reveals chaos and disorder? This would mean that all art, of emotions, so disorderly, can only become order when they are confined to their place.” – Modern Romanticism […]

Poem – “In Barest Grief” – Romance – 10/27/2020

Wild,Strewn aboutIn nakedness,Leaving me my own tears,Consuming themIn one banquet of fears.How much hollownessFor how many graves? Love is the only worldThat knows not how to leave,Not how to depart,From my withered mind,DauntingAs a single petal at the edgeOf a broken stem.All I have is one candleTo see my faceIn her own.

How ordinaryYou are,When you lift your headTo see the sun has setBeyond the banks of the ocean’s edgeWhere I have placed my lipsTo swallow its indulgenceTo me.

Quote – “Why a Man finds Addiction Useful” – 10/26/2020

“It is not society, but himself, who tells the man to remain strong. Though, the toxin as the addiction, whether of alcohol, the injection, the pill, or anger, is simply the disguise around hurt. Pain is always concealed by the addiction. Hurt is always avoided by turning to the addiction. By pretending to be strong, […]

As love,With the subtle breathTo cull the windFrom her heart,With the gentlenessTo conceal the grieving sighsThat bleed out the echoes of goodbyes.

Love is the burial Of unkindness, Of my bleeding remorse In the soil. What grows? Who sings Besides her, who sees my swinging Form, in the bringing Of blue upon the deepest seas Of her sadness, To my departure. There is a smile, So deep, and wild, That did leave Me, without breath.

What a dark face, A pair of black eyes Unfolded into shape. To leave a word in your heart Is to leave a stone in a lake. What can flood That has not already bled? Your form takes, Leaving me to break Like rivers that quit at the bank, Drawn by the wind, Allured by […]

Something dawns, As something lifts The veil from your fractured heart, Laying the kiss Upon two discarded lips, For they did leave you With nothing more to cover you, Until the vows were made. As I can For I have done All to wake this smile In the bright sun of the morning.
