Encounters of a changing nature.

The loss of a friend can often be overlooked. When in reality it can be just as gut-wrenchingly painful as a heartbreak.


You often wonder how a person can continue unaffected without your presence in their life, how they move on while you are stuck in limbo with their loss. However I have come to terms with this as a movement in my mind. A jigsaw puzzle laid bare across a table when you are presented with the pieces they often do not fit! Do you question your ability to complete it when you choose the wrong piece ? No you continue you and find the right piece to finish the masterpiece. I have come to view the people in my life as jigsaw pieces some may not fit and there is nothing to be done!

However I still grieve, for the times that could’ve be and that have. For each moment we spend on this planet we are shaping and changing ourselves and others. I have passed through some lives like wind while others I have lingered like snow only to melt and disappear forever. For some I remain a tree fixed and solid while growing to provide shade and comfort. Every loss however can hurt and it is of upmost importance that every individual entitles themselves to a grieving period.
I think when we lose people as we pass through our lives it can be a truly horrific pain to come to terms with.
I say this as I have many that I still wonder about. One can often let these losses reflect on your own personality as it has left me lost in who I actually am and who I view myself as.

But taking the time to understand can help with this.
To everyone who I have lost in my life and to everyone who has lost a friend.
I wish the very best of fortunes to you.

May we all flourish like tulips drowning in a summers glare.

All the best.

Silence hurts more than anything else.

To prevail is to fill the mind with ones own sweet symphony.

I miss how you used to call me a dumbass

The small things remain

I’ve demonstrated a knack for painting

Remedies to my headaches,

It is not childish.

It is a form of control.

Join a metal portal,
scream 6 hours on

rest after
when the breeze has gone
and those wailing yellows
creep on.

Join a metal portal,
take them all,

get them talkin, bout cha
nd prayin.


This is only the beginning

Things can and will always change

Life is always in motion.

So chin up and you do the same.

via Daily Prompt: Lecture

Discuss the room,
and speak of how you feel.
Remain surprised at the reaction of others
or lack thereof.

Send little nothings on pigeon feet
to those who do not wish to receive
a lecture of how they should change their mindset.

now turn back unto oneself
discuss flaws held within
a reflection of said lecture
ignored under a chin,

take private conversation
with a mirror
lecturing on a life
do not compare a feeling
they change from day to night.
