Hello Grim

Insanely possible impossibilities,

Shattered and replaced with ingenuity.

Hot roach on a highway hitting nothing,

I hold all the aces and still I’m bluffing.

Smeared sneer pasted in a smile,

Choking on air – so I’ll smoke for awhile.

Ups are getting tossed ‘round the downs,

When I fall and trip I don’t hit the ground.

Show me the trail and I’ll run on through,

I may laugh at death –

-but death laughs at you

        1. Hahaha….most frustrating thing in the world no? All that work, time, emotion, so suddenly gone. I honestly have no idea how this one found its way back. Part of the goal with the blog….digitize baby, never lose anything again….hopefully.

          And in that line, I truly wish yours will find their way home again as well. Your work is incomparable. Love everything on so many levels. bows head.

          1. It’s lost. Like many things when my grandparents passed, my mother had to get rid of a lot. All I recall is one journal where I pretended to be a vampire and wrote from that perspective.

            Unless the zombie apocalypse happens, we’ll have our stuff here forever. I want to hand write some out for my little ones. Archaic, I know.

            Thank you. I’m meeting so many great people/writers on here. Should’ve used WordPress a million years ago.

          2. Your little ones are lucky Samantha. Nothing archaic about it. Someone I met in a bar once told me he had made a fortune in gifts from corporations by simply hand writing them letters that started, “This is bullshit…”

            Writing with the flesh isn’t old fashion, it’s personal, and that means the world. 🙂

  1. Half way through my brain thought “HOLD EVERYTHING! THERE’S A DIFFERENT TONE/ATTITUDE!” then that was too much thinking for my brain and I continued on. So I was happy to see it was written by your younger self and I didn’t have to think too hard. Illustration? You? Or from somewhere else? It’s fitting and I love it. I’ve always wanted to be able to express myself in the way you do instead of spewing out raw naked truth. It would be more subtle and cerebral. I still think that all types of poetry are supposed to rhyme. lol

  2. I love your style though Darie….there’s a huge amount to be said in favor of the naked truth. Each of us has our own…I’m having a ton of fun seeing what young me wanted to say all those years ago. Your work is beautiful in its unique way. As a reader, I wouldn’t change a thing in any way.
