Robert Johnson - Me and the Devil blues

Early this morning, oh
When you knocked upon my door
And I said hello Satan
I believe it’s time to go.

You may bury my body
Down by the highway side
So my old evil spirit
Can get a Greyhound bus and ride

Dormant


There’s no mercy in time
dormant,
been trying to wake up
the better half of a decade
Tranquilized escapes
tattered goals
left faded from summer suns
color bled in snow drifts
of yesterday
One in the same
Know what’s behind your sun spots
and red lipstick
I’m as confused and
cornered as you
Served language
disregarding valediction
Though we both
let it go unsaid,
ends up
Dormant all over again

Brand New - Limousine

And in the choir,
I saw our sad messiah,
He was bored and tired of my laments,
Said ‘I died for you one time but never again.’

Round 1: Blues vs Blackhawks

Let the hate flow. Go Hawks!!

Round 1: Blues vs Blackhawks

Let the hate flow. Go Hawks!!

Sterile

Sun breaks through
glass,
reminiscent of the womb
Enshrining you like
the first and last
9 months of sterile,
melodic silence
Muffled words peppered
in between
Daylight enchants
psyche,
Mental supply and demand
Moonlight’s beauty
becomes too much to
take
Sleep
envies reflections
92 million
miles away

fur you!

20 years gone. I remember my dad playing Nirvana when I was pretty young, it was something I loved as a a kid. The chaoticness of certain songs, the beauty of the others, it was awesome to me. As I got older I learned more about him, the guy a lot of people wrote as whiney, some junkie scum, or a piece of shit that abandoned his family. Which still bothers me to read people pass their drivel about anyone with mental health issues and/or drug issues. “He had it all! He threw away his life! How can you be that miserable with all that was given to you!” I never obviously knew the man outside of books, his music, or videos I’ve seen of him, but as I grew older and went to school for creative writing, I heard something in his writing that you only get to if you’ve opened up the darkest, most territorial part of your soul. We all have it. Whether we want to share it is another thing. Listen to any song and the lyrics as well as his vocals accompanied by the music, they tell a story of a guy that cared, was empathetic, compassionate; a guy who couldn’t take the way humans treat each other and more so a person that didn’t love himself coupled with depression. It’s hard to listen to sometimes despite how perfectly he conveyed it. What I think most people don’t get about Kurt Cobain was how much of a role model he was to a lot of people. He was a feminist (Nirvana played quite a few shows to benefit rape victims) and he was an advocate for gay rights, tackling issues revolving around masculinity as well as homophobia. The man behind the music was more intriguing. There hasn’t been a musician like him since. It’s interesting how many people love a man they never knew on a personal level. He was an amazing person. The greatest thing he taught a few younger people was empathy. You still have meaning for all the right reasons. May wherever you are be the the peace you were searching for. You are loved.

Just one miracle before we
