love letters to god

dear piece of me;

feel free to hold onto it
as long as you need;
i doubt the desire will arise
to return it to me.

you seemed happy, when i passed you
i think i won our staring contest,
did you feel the bullet strike?

would it surprise you to know
i'm getting on with my life?
i think it would.
maybe i can even say i'm happy
enough to fool the world at least.

mary had a little lamb
and i will play the fool
who followed you to school one day
and fought to fit your rules.

so forget me cause it's easy
let my memory fade
i'll haunt your past in ghostly halls
bet you anything you fall

and this time,
i'm not gonna catch you


If You Love Something, Let It Go

I saw her one Sunday morning
at the local park.
She was swollen and green
like that one unripe tomato
that you always see at the grocery store,
and say
"I'll give it a chance"
and you hope that it will ripen as fast as tomatoely possible.
She was the roundest thing I had seen in a while.
The biggest, brightest balloon in the bunch,
and I had to have her.
She looked so blissful up there,
floating just above the rest of the balloons.
I dug in my pocket for some change,
and could barely contain myself
when taking her out of the Balloon Mans hand.
I would love her better than he ever could.
And for a while, we were happy,
Just her and me.
Just the two of us.
I could never let her out of my sight,
out of my tender grasp.
If I let up, she would try to escape.
Try to float up to the heavens.
Eventually my tender grasp
transformed
into a vigilant vice,
and I intended to never let her go.
For awhile, she drove me crazy.
I wasn't old enough to drive yet,
so I was generally content
with walking her everywhere,
never looking down.
As she was at first mine,
I became hers.
She owned me now.
It occurred to me one day
the old adage,
"If you love something, let it go. If it comes back, it's yours."
I would test this theory.
See if I was really hers.
So the next Sunday morning,
ever carefully,
infinitely slowly,
I let her go.

And she floated
Up, up
and got smaller
and smaller
until the deep blue sky
couldn't contain her reach.

I might have been sinking.
I might have stepped in quick sand,
and she might have been waiting for me.
Maybe I was the one who should have come back.
Probably not.
So now
I spend my Sunday mornings at the grocery store.
Throwing unripe tomatoes at little old ladies.

Thanks for doing it properly...I'm not exactly the best at all the polls and such.
Today I feel electric grey
I hope tomorrow, neon black

blue painted a more vivid scene for me.

I'm not sure why this was remade... but my choice remains the same. Blue all the way here

Find a dice and assign a number to each girl. Throw the dice.


The number you hope for at the moment you throw the dice, is the one you'll want to keep.

Blue was quite good. It had some great lines in it and I loved the phrase "tomatoely possible"

Although it seemed to drag on a bit and it seemed to take away from the great parts in it.

I voted green.

Although I truly loved them both. Well done.
