Heart bunches
tied up

Mistaken for a lump of

It will be mulch

Sin Eater

That last poem counts, dammit.

Five days on, and I have another entry. So much for my "I'll write every day" promise. Well screw me, I don't have to listen to that guy, I'll post when I damn well please.

However, I shall amend my promise. I shall submit four (FOUR/4/2+2) things every week. Good or bad. I can't get better if I don't write something, after all.

So, here it is, Sin Eaters (for lack of a better tittle, I've never been good at tittles). I keep looking at it, and keep thinking it's not finished, but I can't bring myself to write anything more. Every time I write something, it is crap. The mojo of this piece ended where it ended, I'm afraid.

and plot with busy minds

Their bodies are glutted with ages
Dedicated to their unasked worship

Given or taken

Every time you look upon them
Their skin of roughshod feathers
Beckons and mocks
With equal enthusiasm

Love Bludgeon

Great fun, people

Little love puppet plays the part
But a puppet is not a real boy

It's made of wood

But in the absence of love it does the job

Empty calories
Makes you fat
What you need is a

It seems everyone has a blog these days. It also seems everyone starts a blog with those words. And these. Damnit. Clichéd from the start.

Anyway, to the core of the matter: I shall strive to post something here every day. Something, damnit, anything! I shall write, I shall force myself to do what I command!

It's a lie and we all know it.

On the up side I can use my previously written tosh to fill in the gaps. Huzzah!
