All the magic in the world can not rewrite history. All the love in your heart can not save you from the truth. All the joy in the laughter of all the small children playing the favorite games of their youth can not bring back what they have taken from you. There will be no absolution. A time will come in the very near future when you have a chance to make a stand, you will be given a choice. ...
I am a very selfish person
I want to change the world. I want to save the world. But I want to do it for me and not for you. It isn’t so much the destruction of the planet or the poisoning of the ecosystem which angers me when it comes to pollution. I am much more concerned with the distorting and disrupting of something I find infinitely beautiful. You are ruining my enjoyment of my surroundings and this angers me to...
The truth about Vampires.
The vampire exists in a perpetual state of lust, loss, love, life and death. He can not keep the ones he loves around him without cursing them with his disease. He is doomed to haunt the earth century after century, loving and losing over and over. He is eternally damned. A servant of Satan patiently waiting out the end of time. Spending year after year receiving his punishment from god for...
Beer. A tribute. Part Two
And with blurred vision I raise my glass in salute to you, my friend, beer.

alonesomepoet: I just can not seem to understand why so many people not only follow Justin Poole but also sing his praises. It makes no sense to me. He makes me sick. You forgot to add “Really Good Looking” to your tag line.
jenneverwrote replied to your post: Yesterday was the first time in months that I needed to perform follower maintenance sounds almost like a game of thrones ruler speech People keep telling me I should read that but I just havent given it the time yet. Should I?

Needless to say, everything, nearly everything I wrote yesterday was intended to incite. I had seen a surge in followers and needed to know which ones would be easily frightened off. Those of you are still here are the most powerful of the community. You and others like you are the true backbone of the world. You and I my fellow brothers and sisters, it will be us who rise to the occasion when...
ordinarywonder answered your question: Who is awake? Whatever happened to your book/ebook idea? Thanks to the great computer crash of 2012 I lost most the work I had put into that including about 30 previously unpublished pieces. It is being slowly rebuilt.
Heroes of common men
His hands are dark; stained with blood, grease, and oil. His knuckles cracked from a wrenches busting loose time and again. He wears the days labor on his clothes, in his hair, and on his face. He never was much for books, he makes his living with those bruised and battered hands. As talented as a surgeons but not quite as compensated. When he leaves the job he makes his way home to a two...
This is really hard for me to say
I’ve been at war with myself for years now. I’ve been battling constantly but I never feel any closer to a victory. This war of attrition has done nothing to sooth my chaotic soul, it has only served to tear me further apart. When one goes to war against oneself it is only they who can be the loser. There are no winners in a civil war and like Axl said, whats so civil about war anyway? Why do...
The most basic truth in all the world
I dont mean to do it and it is not something that I am necessarily proud of. It just happens. From time to time, rather frequently actually, I develop crushes on multiple girls at once. You may think this isnt really that much of a problem, but oh my friend it is indeed. See when I have a crush on a girl, I dont usually keep it to myself. I make sure that she is aware. I let her know just how much...

Moleskine Perfectly synonymous with pretentious. Your overpriced journal doesn’t make you anymore of an artist.
Women in the work place. Triumph or tragedy?
Sure, it is easy to say allowing woman equal rights was a great idea and in theory it was. Certainly we can all agree that women deserve all the same rights as men but does that really mean that giving them those rights was the proper thing to do? One needs only to look to the struggling economy and the rise of crime statistics in order to make the argument that we messed up somewhere along the...

White Privilege does not exist
So many people these days are quick to pull the race card. No matter how much good you do, no matter how pure your intentions, the moment a white man attempts to do some good in this world, people begin shouting, “white privilege! white privilege!” White privilege you say? More like white burden. Lets forget all the flowery talk of equality and all the hopelessly romantic dreams of...
I really should be famous by now.
Publishing companies Real publishing companies Almost uniformly, refuse to publish poetry if it is written by an unknown author. In case you missed the post, a couple of months ago, or maybe it was a month ago, I don’t know, Im terrible with time, I lost almost everything I had written for my novel over the last couple of years due to a computer crash. I’ve rewritten a lot of it...
I dont usually discriminate against people
But when I do its because of the music they listen to.
People are great at missing the point.
No where in my post did I say that there are not certain groups that have a harder time than other groups. The entire point of my post is that we, as humans, have the responsibility to make equality a reality. It is up to us to make it so that everyone has the exact same rights. So please don’t try to insult me for being a heterosexual white male. I have no more choice in that than any...
On the subject of equality
Some people are harassed for being gay, some for being poor, some for being fat, some for being black, some for being jewish, some for being unfashionable, some for liking different music. There really are only two types of people in the world. Those who hurt or harass people who are different from them and people who accept everyone. The only real minority in this world is the group of people...
Why would I pay for college
When a library card is free?
I love it when I get likes and especially reblogs
From blogs Ive never heard of and then when I go to their blog its just a bunch of random ass photos or food or fashion or something And has nothing to do with writing and is in no way related to the “tumblr writing community” Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate all the support I get from those of you who are also here for writing But there is just something about getting...
In my eyes you know it true
Lets leave hearts out of this and focus on the feeling in our souls I know not what tomorrow brings I know only where I am this moment And at this second In this instance I am free of doubt free of guilt free of fear and willing to jump
Even more than generic cliches
I hate pretentious attempts at empty eloquence You can not articulate meaningless verse in a striking or elegant manner All the perfect grammar and practiced technique means nothing unless you have something to say
All the pretty little girls
I know how it feels to be wanted needed and desired I am the one who stokes your passions fire I know how it feels to be the object of your devotion I know all the secrets of your hidden emotions You read my words and imagine they are meant for you You know that no one knows you like I do You picture my hands on your body As I sing your favorite lines from all my best songs You close...

More tangible More permanent More substantial if you will? There is something so trivial about words on a computer screen Perhaps if I print this off, in some fancy font and fold it in half place it in an envelope and mail it to your front door Maybe then the severity of my words would somehow seem more authentic I have so much to say to you and I dont want my message getting lost in...
In which I write about writing again
Write on my brothers and sisters I urge you to persevere Write for the lonely lovers and tortured romantics Write for pain and joy Write not for your peers Write because you love it and you want others to feel Write because you need to Write because your heart is real Have faith in knowing that there are those of us who care Keep true and stay loving Write as if you have to As if...
I drink cheap whiskey because it tastes like life
I gave away the imagery of this poem in the title A shot without a chaser burns on the way down and warms the face a bit it isn’t entirely bitter I would say more harsh and it has always reminded me a bit of you and the way you made me feel And the way life in general has left me feeling The bottom shelf has served me well Kept me in clothes and kept me in drinks I would hate to have to...
Do what you must do
As I sat in my idling car my heart pounded in my chest. The gun felt cold and heavy in my hand, the weight of the steel was the only thing keeping me lucid, the only thing reminding me this was real. As my thoughts raced I began to drift further and further into my own world, the headlights of passing cars blurred together with the glow of the traffic light up ahead and they both reflected off...
Keep to myself, I'll stay out of your way
I do my best to dispel this notion that I am an artist or a poet. For the more people who know it, the more people expect it. And eventually it comes to be that my true words are not credited to me but instead to my creativity.
It pains me that Twilight has given Vampires a bad...
A vampire is, deep within its still heart, a romantic creature One does not exist for centuries without gaining a certain flair for nostalgia or a desire for passion but a Vampire does not love in the way a teenager does A vampire loves with ferocity and madness A vampire lusts with such great fervor that a mortal man or woman can not hold up to the loves demands Your fragile bones would be...

mush-roomz answered your question: What are you currently reading? 1984 Absolutely a classic everyone must read. This is sitting next to my bed right now. Is it your first time reading or just revisiting a favorite?
stopreading-startdoingpushups answered your question: What are you currently reading? Freedom by Jonathan Franzen was pretty good. Weird… but good! I keep seeing this at bookstores and I contemplate picking it up, just because the guy is from Saint Louis but I havent made the leap yet. Would you say it is worth the price?

I haven’t read something that wasn’t for ‘research’ in ages, but I’d love to read Game of Thrones… how was the Dark Tower series?

What are you currently reading?
I am set to finish the seventh and final book of Stephen Kings Dark Tower Series and am contemplating reading the Harry Potter series again. I also peruse my complete works of H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe daily. So, what is it that is currently inhabiting your brain
I hate that stupid Zooey Disneychannel broad
And that show New Girl is not funny. Stupid hipsters.
Her body is full of imperfections
that only she can see When you examine yourself with a magnifying glass Perfectly beautiful is something you can never be I wish on every star in the sky I hope with everything inside of me that one day you will see with my eyes Just how amazing You will always be
This is about someone
She came into my life roaring like a lion and beating her chest like a silverback. All me me me and mine mine mine. She represented herself as something more than a normal girl, a fantastic journey which I’d be lucky to be invited to. She spoke of such grand adventures and wicked deeds that I found it hard to not get swept up in the excitement and eventually, that is just what I did. I let...
It must be leading somewhere
I often say to myself, hey bro, you should probably stop drinking for a couple of weeks or something. However, it always seems there are occasions that just pop up every couple of days that require drinking. Parties, shows, long drives, golf games, baseball games, days with nothing to do. So you see, its not that Im an alcoholic, not even a little. Its just that I enjoy many of my favorite...
