I have the growing desire to blast the girls next to me with every kind of irritated reproach; now a sharp or witty remark, and in a moment of weakness, some sort of explosives. Sadly, my own mind is the only thing enduring any trial, and they talk on.Posted By Tyler Ann Klein On 03.14.2013 @ 2:34 pm
We wrap ourselves up in layers of warm methods at nice, whispering to ourselves over and over that we are not the first ones to stumble through this adventure, that many have come before, that our methods will keep us warm and suspend the pulsing life in our veins.Posted By Tyler Ann Klein On 12.09.2012 @ 11:19 pm
July was the time I first knew that I loved you. I hadn’t seen you for months, and didn’t care, or wanted not to care, and then I dreamed you and me more honest and more real than we ever were. And our dream selves were in love, and I knew we should try to reach for them.Posted By Tyler Ann Klein On 12.07.2012 @ 11:19 am
It’s as simple as it should be, she told me, while the world spun around us and all of heaven was hell and hell became heaven and I couldn’t speak because none of it was right, and nothing I could have said would have been true enough.
She looked me directly in the eyes, as if to say she knew. “Simple as it needs to be.”Posted By Tyler Ann Klein On 12.05.2012 @ 11:20 am
I live in the upper floor of my brain, looking down upon the emotions swirling in the basement floors, screaming when my feet get wet, and staring out the windows of my eyes, wondering when I am going to get out of this godforsaken house of self-made horrorsPosted By Tyler Ann Klein On 10.14.2012 @ 4:21 pm
‘Since’ is the human condition. It is a question and an explanation, a slice in time and we’re sitting on top of teh knife blade cutting across it all. We have always been asking, when did it all begin? I’ve been here, since when? And silently asking the other question–what came before?Posted By Tyler Ann Klein On 10.13.2012 @ 8:23 pm
All the color is drained out of my eyes. It’s the stillness I’ve been waiting for, been dreaming of….it sits on my skin, a dragon’s armor. I’m begging the stillness to sink into my pores, to drip into my blood, to silence the scream I can’t make, to finally stop the painful thudding of life into death.Posted By Tyler Ann Klein On 09.07.2012 @ 11:03 am
Detention–why do we detain, slow down, those who are seeming to struggle most? The privileged kids are given the green lights, get all the pampering and engine repairs, get every praise, and the poor broken down bodies of the penniless children get detention.Posted By Tyler Ann Klein On 07.06.2012 @ 2:05 pm
Oh lord. No one wants to think about the pits. We all try not to be in the pits. We try not to get the pits in our mouths. We try to hide our pits and to made them as inconspicuous as possible. We are all trying not to believe that we are pit-iful….it’s pithetic.Posted By Tyler Ann Klein On 06.20.2012 @ 1:28 am
In society, everything is fixed, it is stationary, there are no problems that are unaccounted for, there is a ‘way’ and a path and a solution, and no struggle exists that is too big to fit inside.
So take a breath and exhale as much society from your lungs as possible. Feel what it’s like to be empty for a moment. To be baffled by the struggle of existence.Posted By Tyler Ann Klein On 03.21.2012 @ 3:10 pm
My life will be an epic.
A story! Not just any story, though, but a long, lyrical, winding tale that stretches belief, that is extraordinary, that is the story of a super hero and an underdog and a crazy person and that leaves you with a final, satisfied sigh at those last rhythmic words, ‘The End’Posted By Tyler Ann Klein On 02.02.2012 @ 4:46 pm
I slide into the booth, next to you. You are the person of my dreams, for so many years, and now you seem to be so familiar as to be a stranger. I tried to remember what you look like the other day and couldn’t conjure your face, which is strange since it is the only one I’ve ever kissed.Posted By Tyler Ann Klein On 05.24.2011 @ 11:09 pm
