The Green Room
This is my room.
  It was plain and white,
with a tightly made bed in the corner
and a crumpled paper-girl lying on the bed,
but you missed it.
Actually, she was made of porcelain,
but she changed into paper when no one was looking.
       Paper's more fun.
       (You can draw on paper.)
   And besides, the porcelain doll was given to me by my school mates,
who I very desperately tried to be,
   and whose handwriting I could never quite copy.
         Therefore, the first time I threw a tantrum, it wasn't really a tantrum;
I carefully arranged the blankets on the floor
(so the shadows outside my door would think things were according to plan)
and screamed at an octave acceptable without killing things.
I tried to do things by the book, did I.
            Even tried t

Head in the Clouds
I love how the music comes as if from under a blanket.
It's like hearing a person in the next room,
mumbling about dates and appointments and shopping lists.
How mundane. The words aren't important, right?
A splash of static over the speakers,
Is that intentional?  Ah, they must be trying to be original.
So I tried flying yesterday, for the first time in years.
They shot me up to the sky on an engine of prayers and clunky machine oil.
When I came down, everyone had become old and no one remembered my name.
I didn't want to ask them the date because they couldn't hear the music.
Furthermore, about this music: is it even real?
So how does that make you feel?
"Excuse me?"
"How does that make you feel? Wondering whether the music is real."
"It feels like I missed a train or something. Everyone grew up without me. What happened?"
"Does that make you anxious?"
"I'm always anxious, I'm a fucking mess. I was born that way. Didn't you read my file?"
"I read your poems, y

Words, upon a computer screen.
They mean…
Tell me now.
I'm curious.
Okay now, wait. We talked about this in Java.
Computers (so I understand it) are little senseless boxes-
They think in flashes
tiny sharp bursts of clarity.
      (What we in the business call electricity, E-L-E-C-T-R-I-C-I-T-Y.
          Ever hear of it?)
And those little pulses,
they're ones or they're zeroes
and that little morsel, that's what we call a bit.
Not the bit you chew but
        (Yes! No! So satisfying-
     none of those pesky gray areas, getting in the way.)
Then you go bigger.
Eight bits to a byte.
What do you do with that?
Two sent to the house of zero will always come back

The Good Times
I found the good times-
they were hiding in my pocket the entire time.
(says the shutter,
laughing slowly as I take them out)
I froze in an instant,
that is to say
    several instants
paper of glass where outsiders gaze
and see a lifetime together,
    with me at the center
all laid out in front of them.
What's this?
     they ask.
Who's this?
Where was that?
      …and it's ten years ago
sometime in the future
when we sprawled over the hood of his car
and laughed the night away as the desert stars came up above us
Man, those were crazy days-
those days years from now.
You could climb a stage and there'd be the crowd
and we danced for the night like savages to shock
those idiots in the back.
  Here, that there was my best friend
    -she had a thing for guns.
    Got a crazed little lantern in her eyes

Hey, guys.

So, some people may have noted that I haven't been on much in the last, oh say, six months or so. it's been coming on for a while (as I'm sure is evidenced by my long absenteeism) but I think I really need to take some time off from DA for a while.

I'm writing this journal to make it sort of official, and to let you guys know that I haven't been hit by a truck or anything. You guys have been really amazing and supportive ever since I started posting on this website.

The thing is, DeviantART is supposed to be fun. And it is fun, it's just that for a while now maintaining my gallery's seemed like a chore.I started feeling guilty about not keeping up with it all. It shouldn't be like that. This whole thing, this whole beautiful, amazing thing that is the Internet, and art and communities and stuff, that's what it's about.

You know what I love about this site? How I've made friends with people from all over the world. People who like to think, and who came on here looking for other people who wanted to think. And I mean, it's not like we're pretentious little twerps who sit around all day and talk about philosophy and What It's All About, because we aren't, we make fun of bishounen and role play shape-shifting morph-gun parties like the best of them. What I love is that we can do both. It's just been really... nice. I'm glad that there's a place where people can go to find that. I was in eighth grade when I started this gallery, and at the time, that was what I really needed. It's meant a lot to me, and I want to thank you all again.

I wrote that last bit because I want to show you that I'm not mad at the site, or something anyone said, or did, because it's meant a lot to me to have this. I might not even be leaving for good. Maybe I'll create a new account. you know, a fresh start. It could happen. I love what this place stands for. I love connecting with people, whether it's over their high art surrealist treatise on the nature of love, or their crack-tastic yaoi neko comic. Don't you guys just love the Internet? I love the Internet. It's all art, and it's all been fantastic. Dammit, now I'm feeling emotional.

But I just need a break for a while.

And maybe I'll be back.

So, au revoir. Hasta la pasta. Don't eat stale cookies. And don't trust dogs with orange eyebrows.

I love you guys.

... I miss you. I don't offer this often, but... If you check here again... Do you want to swap e-mail addresses or something?

I don't wanna sound creepy, but I do kinda miss having someone to just chat with. You know, someone I don't see every day.

...Aaand the creepy is there. xD
