I could be the next Jim Jones or Charles Manson
I know I could. I know what people want and I know what people need and I know what people think they want and I know what people think they need But most importantly I know how to tell the difference and I know how make you believe I can give it to you. They say the eyes are the windows to the soul and that is the true trick to deceit for if I can lie with my eyes what truths could my...
I will never understand the concept of being too...
You are a human and they are a human and I have yet to meet the person who says “No, thats alright, I have plenty of friends. I’m not really interested in meeting anyone new.” What is the absolute worst that could come of it? Perhaps you don’t like each other? And even if your conversation leads to this realization, I can still assure you that you will be better for the...
We were in the process of becoming Kings
We spent our days in rags meant for royalty naked though we were our hearts burst with love material importance has slipped from our souls We pass the time play acting pretending to be all the things we are not but after days of practice you start to slip into the role until the unknown becomes the known and the unreal becomes the real You can be anything you wish to be It is as simple...
Anonymous asked: Wow, pro-choice are we? What a controversial and brave stand to take on tumblr. Next you'll come out in support of gays or maybe claim something outrageous and groundbreaking like maybe black and white people actually are equal after all.

You’re a fucking asshole and I hate you.
I count the syllables in your haikus
And make mental notes of each time you fuck up.
I will almost always unfollow/not follow someone...
They have a link on their page to all their work that has been featured. There is absolutely no reason for you to promote something based on the fact that some random nobody decided to feature it on tumblr.
The '90s Kids
stopreading-startdoingpushups: We are the generation that saw the coming of the new millennium. We are the generation of Facebook and Tumblr and Netflix. We went from blowing into the cartridges of our gameboy color to playing angry birds on an iPad. We are the generation that listened to the radio in our first grade classrooms that one day in September that everyone told us was a catastrophe...
Death from Above
The dark robed men came down from the heavens, spreading their death across land and sea. Everywhere they cast their spell, the people soon felt pain and misery. Soon came the sores, the scabs, and the blood. It wouldnt be long before mankinds time on earth was done. Harbingers of death, destruction and doom. These are the beasts we unleashed when we opened the ancient tombs. The death is...
What is your favorite book?
Religion is a crutch
Though we should not take away a one legged mans crutch and yell at him about how his crutch was only masking his real problem of having but one leg. We should instead offer him something more substantial to lean upon. Or perhaps a permanent solution What would free one from a crutch is only self-reliance.
pavorst: The chances of being featured in prose are nil. Write a story from the view point of a cat who falls in love with another cat only to find out the cat was actually a dog in a cat costume pretending to be a cat in order to find out all the secrets of cats so as to use them against cats but then the dog falls in love with the cat so the cat and dog have to run away together to...
Everything is not yet lost
Im not an interesting person
Im just a drunk who occasionally does interesting things
"Help, Ive fallen and I cant get up"
Everyone laughs at these commercials Right? I can’t possibly be the only one who thinks it is hilarious to imagine a helpless old person laying on their kitchen floor for three days because they slipped in a puddle of kool-aid.
americanicarus asked: Ah, so it was more... rogue Rocky-esque and less Footloose, methinks?
Point me in the direction of a person who thinks...
And I will show you a fool. None of us have any idea why we are here or what we are supposed to be doing anyone who thinks they know otherwise is both arrogant and insane. How can we know where we are going when none of us even have any idea where we are or how we got here?
americanicarus asked: If there is anything that the 80's taught me through its film industry, it's that punch-dancing montages are the key to a happy and fulfilling life. You're doing it right.
Today I practiced fake punches for an hour
Because that is the sort of thing that makes sense in my life right now.
People crying on TV or in movies
makes me cry but I feel nothing when terrible things happen in my life. Something is wrong with me.
I can tell I would hate you
Because of that stupid face you make in your pictures.
Poetic and Proud
It always confuses me as to the way hearts work. How simple and complex these feelings always were. Why so many kids think these fleeting feelings are forever romances. Why they think these feelings are more than first chances. When in reality they can’t make it a week without hurting each other. First in one way and then in another. Someday soon you will realize love is a lie and you have...
The death of innocence
The young boy stared up at the fireworks exploding overhead. Mustard dripped down his corndog and onto his hand. His jaw stayed open, his eyes remained transfixed. The colors burst in the sky magnificently bright blues, greens and reds. The gunpowder blasts echoed throughout the valley. His ears filled with the high pitched laughter of his friends and the more firm but yet just as joyous...
And I will never love again
Lost in the translation hidden in the metaphors She never found the one who could understand What is the subtext of the content You better say just what it is you mean Buried deep inside of her is the kind of fire that could burn down the world I keep digging deeper and deeper Hoping someday I will reach her core Hotter than hell and burning like Vampires in the sun Satans servants...

Book details and how you can help
The book will be 80 pages consisting of roughly 60 never seen before pieces including the endings of several stories started on this blog such as Typewriter Erotica, The Fall of Humanity, Ell and E and more. The book will most likely be around 3 dollars for a digital copy and around 8 dollars for a paperback copy. I doubt any hardbacks will be made, those would have to be purchased in advance. ...
Maybe you have been wondering why I havent been...
Well it is because I have been doing a lot of offline writing and guess what The book is almost finished. So get pumped.
Books usually bore me, I don’t really like reading.– The person who I immediately stopped listening to.
When all hearts remain unbroken
Well then I shall be out of a job for it is the duty of the poet of the artist and of the musician To mend the damage that love has done

Death would be a welcome vacation
From the dreadful drudgery of daily existence. This meaningless pursuit of unattainable happiness This callous continuance can only reach one destination Total darkness Supreme nothingness So what is the point? Live while you live and die when you die You will get nowhere in life if you are always asking why The journey they say is the true adventure But I have grown weary of...
The well is dry my luck has run out I’ve lost my way I have forgotten what I was once about. I am entirely empty and devoid of all feeling Drugs or drinks fights or fucks death and desire love and lust No There is only me There is only that which you see Longing for a fix A way out of this rut A one way ticket from this place in which I am stuck Roll up your sleeve and...
Things would appear so very clear if you would simply open your eyes and the words that you hear would ring so true if you’d only open your ears You could still have yours while listening to mine You could learn to love anyone if you’d just open your mind. I believe in you even if you don’t believe in me and even if you wish it only for you I still wish for you to be free ...
Swallow the leader
First and foremost this is a test one you are sure to fail unless you succeed I need you to prove to them and to me that you are willing to risk it all that you are willing to lay it all on the line in the name of glory in the pursuit of fame Will you sacrifice everything you have just to make it? Because I will and I refuse to lead any who will not on your knees young soldier it is...
I dont understand why kids take out student loans
And then complain that they have to pay them back. Sorry your history of art degree didn’t get you a job maybe you should of thought that through.
I understand Kurt Cobain
If I had to choose between suicide and a lifetime of playing the shitty mediocre songs my band had become famous for I would definitely swallow the business end of a shotgun.
I put the fun in funeral
Here is my real advice to young tumblr writers
Give up You fucking suck and it is pointless to continue this charade You haven’t an original thought in your head nor an original bone in your body Your feelings are not important to anyone. Even your parents think your poetry sucks You think that no one understands you but the painful truth is that we do understand you we just dont like you because you are boring and generic and...
Here is some writing advice
You write what you want to write and I will write what I want to write and if someone out there feels something when they read it, well then what we call it means nothing because it is art. Do exactly what it is that you want to do. Never write for anyone but you or the one who has inspired you. Fuck convention and fuck form invent totally new ways of sharing your words. In the end it...
I think I really dislike this person
“take literature/creative writing classes every year since 10th grade and you learn something about criticizing and analyzing poetry.” - http://thenatureofdaylight.tumblr.com/ No one cares about your shitty opinion. Spend more time living life and less time in classrooms and maybe then I will give a fuck about your opinion on anything. Actually I still won’t because...
Writing advice from someone who is still learning.
thenatureofdaylight: I am sorry for those who are offended by this, but it must be said: Poetry should not be written like prose. A poem should be a poem for a reason, which means it must be a reason that cannot be channeled through prose. A poem should be structured in a way that it serves toward the purpose of the content. There should be deliberation in all repeated lines, listed phrases,...
girlvswhale replied to your post: Now that is what I would call irony WAIT. I THOUGHT YOU HATED ALL WOMEN AND WANTED THEM TO BURST INTO FLAMES? IS THIS THE REAL JUSTINPOOLE? /sarcasm caps. You shut your mouth whore! You will speak when spoken to!
Stop featuring the sex stories or love poems I...
And start featuring the things I and other people post about important social issues. Are you afraid of offending someone? Art isn’t supposed to be safe. Sometimes people need to be bashed in the head over and over with an issue before they start to pay attention. Sometimes people need you to peel back their eyelids and force them to stare into the truth. If you truly want the world to...
Now that is what I would call irony
Isn’t it funny how the republican party is constantly talking about the government having too much control over the people yet they are the ones constantly campaigning to take away all of our basic civil rights? The government should not have a single word to say about religion, marriage, sexuality, reproduction, or anything else that affects only the individual making the choice. That is...
