Fancy Llama!!!

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 28, 2015, 10:01 PM
I was surprised to log on and realize that I finally received the fancy Llama badge :D

So, yet another feature, this time selected works from various friends favorites, with some of my own work mixed in.
And a few from the random buttons!

The words never spoken,
Yet always heard.
Not from people around me,
No, that's absurd.
I've heard these words,
Time after time,
They always pierce my heart,
They continuously cross my mind.
But these words were never said.
Never once directed at me.
Maybe they never became reality,
But I saw them spoken in my mentality.
These are the words of a bully.
The words that can tear me apart.
The words that can no longer be erased,
Because they have entered my heart.
This person who speaks them,
I know them quite well.
They have countless words in their head,
They have many stories to tell.
I don't know why they want me
To take all of the blame.
It might be for vengeance,
It might be from their own shame.
But the owner of these words,
The words that repeat,
Have caused me great fear,
Have led to my defeat.
This person I know,
Whom I d
DragonsThe dragons just kept getting cuter.
I'd meant them to be scary, with snakelike heads and pearly fangs, but as my fingers gained more practice the dragons they shaped became younger and more innocent, their wings tiny and their eyes wide. Dull spikes lined their heads and tails, not yet sharpened by age. They lay on their bellies or sat up and watched with good-natured curiosity. They were friendly. They were sweet.
They were flawed, and there were a lot of them. I experimented with color and pose, sculpting the way others would turn a stress ball. Every morning I baked the newcomers in my oven, and within a week my desk was overrun. Rows of dragons pressed against my laptop from all sides. Some I enjoyed looking at. Others were a reminder of some mistake I'd made. Putting the horns on before the eyes. Making the legs too thin so it tilted drunkenly while baking. Not realizing that some clay changes color as it solidifies.
What to do with them all? I couldn't keep them even if I'd want
The phoenix is my symbol
It is my sign
For it is my strength
My souls twine
For I am the phoenix
I am the fire
Death and rebirth
In me is one pyre
In flame immortal
My soul consumes
The universal power
Through which life blooms
For I am a god
I am life
My glory be crowned
Naught rage I with strife
(c)2004 Joseph Palladino
a field of blossoms
a world apart
each of satin petals,
a poison heart.
I am ringed about
with ghosts and dream-things
looking on.
You dance with me,
and they are gone.
BrokenI can’t breathe
I want to but no air comes out
I want to speak but no words come out
Why do I feel... hurt?
I feel betray
I feel like love had forgotten me
Like God only help those who have love
My heart hurts
My heart feels like a thousand needles went through my chest
and now it’s bleeding slowly for me to die
Why when I try to move my hands to touch the ground I can't
Touch the ground
Just to know it’s still there
Just to know I am still alive
I feel like a broken doll
Shatter into pieces
Pieces all over the floor
With no one there to put me back together one...
Will fix me
No one will love me
No one will help me breath
not feel things that is real
not to even to tell me that I’m alive
DragonsThey've slick sleek muscles,
And sharp spaded tails.
They've gleaming white fangs,
And flame that can't fail.
                      Nothing escapes them
                      When soaring the skies,
                      Searching for danger
                      Seeing all fire eyes.
Strong stretched webbed wings.
Bright glimmering scales,
Jaws that carry death,
Wits sharper than nails.
                      They sharpen their

I am a very diverse person, but also a very selective one. I love every genera of literature, film, and music, but I'm selective about what I enjoy within each area.

"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing."
- Helen Keller
