summertime.i've realized i miss you most in the summer. when we were together, we belonged to the cold; trees would lose their leaves, winter winds would blow, but the summer was ours. it was a time when we could leave essays and exams behind and start dreaming. a time for stargazing and raindancing and treeclimbing. for the wild. for us.summertime. by jonathoncomfortreed
i feel so out of place. in the light of a bonfire or the wind of a highway, i find myself thinking: you would have loved this. and i get lost in memories of running through a subway station, reaching for lights across the dark ocean or swinging by a lake and dangling our feet in the stars.
this has always been a season of early sunrises and fast-moving clouds. of picking strawberries and meeting strangers. i thought june would last forever.
but it's august. and back then, whenever i drove home at midnight or walked across the city at dawn, you were by my side. you feel far away from me, and listening to your music doesn't bring you any closer. i mi
With a camera in my hands;
I love photography, and I always have. I strive to capture that "moment" and keep it forever.
And a pen behind my ear;
I'm a writer, focusing on short stories and poetry; I love to convey emotion with words.
A laptop in my bag;
I do a lot of experimentation with digital art and other technology. I like to learn new things.
And imagination in my heart.
Artistic expression comes to me like breathing. I couldn't live without it.
Art means a lot more to me than people think.
It's that reminder that there's something more. Something worth living for.
Something worth dreaming about.
There's only us.
Polishing the BrassDo not vote for me. I am too young, and you need a wise-man, steeped in tradition, not a warrior. Do not vote for me, because I am terrifying. I will change your world, and that is a discomfort. I will alter your routine and cut passages through the mountains that block your minds, sending winding train tracks of iron between ideas.

crusaders.give me this disaster; becausecrusaders. by stuff7
it is all i know, and i know how
breaks and i want to
watch you fall.
i'll be at the bottom; standing
still, cold in my disease, my lungs and
hipbones have melted together
and i think
i'm falling apart.
i am flying or trying; but
i can't get high enough
to soar on these wings,
broken years before.
but i'm not safe, i'm not
afraid. i believe in anything i
need to get by, i'm stronger than
of us thought before.
this is what i was waiting for.
^ Deal with it. ;]
