Silently a noise violently shrieks from peaks in the mountains above the clouds
As crowds gathered to see, all wondering what it could possibly be
Something that could change their known reality?
Unluckily suddenly an utterly terrifying roar bellowed from the sky above
As people below began to shove others out of their way in fear they were prey
The brave chose to stay for it would be them who would be remembered this day
At the speed of a comet came an object but as it got closer it grew smaller as the people began to feel taller
In the end, it was just fear testing their courage that these people had chosen to nourish

When I base my characters on people I have known intimately, they sound and feel more believable (to me). Curse my anxiety though! If only I had a wider array of humans to tap into, writing this part of the story I am working on would not be so difficult. I almost feel inspired to "go out there" and meet more people, collect more characters

I wonder if renting an upright bass is the kind of change I need in my life, I've played some at music stores and of course they're more fun than just a fretless electric bass guitar and I wonder if I'd be motivated to work on getting my intonation right.

Kings without thrones
Skin and bones
Rising from beneath the stones
Bruised and scarred
Refuse to be barred
Battle-hardened and repaired
The world better be prepared
Antifragile minds
Unraveled the lines that confine
Those who dare to wear the crown
Have the strength to yield but will never back down
Break them down into the ground
They rebound with new strength abound

I know this leaves some people who know me dumbfound
But I don't suppress my anxiety, I relax around it
Same with fear except here the emotion is more intense
That's why I rarely appear tense
I do suppress my anger when I'm in a situation where I can't easily getaway
Or I'd say things I don't want to truly say
I get out my anger in other ways
Following the wise and channel it into something like my writing or physical exercise
I know deep down there is an anger beneath the surface
And I believe all emotions serve a purpose
An old attitude of you can't hurt this
To protect me from the feelings of a time when I thought I was worthless
A time when people in my life were oh so hurtful
When I had nobody in my circle

Every day I first see you it's like I've been kissed by death
Cause' for a moment in time I can't catch my breath
No lies, your eyes give me butterflies
I want to show you what lies you beneath the disguise
Sometimes I swear you feel likewise
But I know we're in a situation we just can't compromise

It may sound crazy
Wouldn't understand unless you were me
From the moment I felt death embrace me
I've waited patiently until it takes me
It's like I'm addicted to the Otherside
This life, I just see it as a temporary ride
Till the moment time and eternity collide
Took a walk looking at the stars
Thinking about this world of ours
How so many people around me are obsessed
With the fancy cars and shiny things they possess
Their chests compressed from the stress
Leaving them all wonderless
Sometimes I wonder this
What wonder is
A second sight that can ignite the darkest night
A gift that can bring us back to life

So high I try to defy all reasons why I cannot fly
I'm no angel, I have no wings
I see from new angles, creating new things
Possibility gleams through the seams
Like daylight streams through the window in light beams
Changing my viewpoint to get a new point of view
New ideas brew in my mind like new sights to the blind
Stepping outside the lines outlined to keep us confined
**** the imperious, this life is mine to experience
It's a hard pill for them to swallow when they're left feeling hollow
No desire to follow or be followed
Keep my mind agile like an acrobat
Out of the aftermath, I create my own path
Sit back and laugh at the sky while they all stare and wonder why

Surrounded by the static I create magic
It's so automatic it's become a habit
Making my life feel cinematic
Was living in a past that was traumatic
But enough of that, I'm done looking back
Looking through from the galaxy behind my eyes
Seeing through the lies this world's comprised of
Find a balance between power and love
Don't know when to stop, I can't get enough
So I'll rise to the top looking down from above
A star looking from far beyond all the scars
A new existence created from persistence
A consistent vision
Given birth when imagination and reality had a collision

I bought myself a graphics tablet. A fancy one with a screen. I've had it for a week and haven't used it. Partly because of the heatwave and partly because... I don't feel like I deserve it. I don't really do art anymore, I don't have an imagination, so it's not like I'll be making great stuff like I see other people doing. I love the idea of using one... but I loved the idea of using markers until I realised my colour perception was ****ed and the damn things aren't streak-proof like they said. I can return it before Aug 11th. I probably won't. It'll just be another reminder of my failings. Like the £300 worth of marker pens that I don't use. And the art desk that I don't utilise properly. And the giant Doctor Who cross-stitch that I never finished.

Thoughts twisted and criss crossed across my mind as they toss around outside of time
Delusions causing some confusion as my perception is covered with deception
Keep my cool till it all settles down and I can rebound from my heart pounding
In desperate need of grounding as the voices are sounding loudly
Proudly I'm doing my best even in moments when I feel like the universe is putting me to the test
I confess at times today my mind was a mess
So hard to see reality clearly but I'm learning how to see through the stormy weather
With the light mental touch of a feather I keep it together

"J, be happy!", Why are these voices so chatty?
Whispering in my ear everywhere I go like an invisible lackey
What the ****, at least they talk me up
I've become so used to them I'm able to see right through them
It's like having an invisible friend that I can't talk back to
Back two years I would react to all my fears
But in my ears all I could hear were their cheers
I guess I'm grateful they're not hateful

I shot for the moon but I'm headed for the sun now
Hope I make it there before sundown
A showdown, a feud between me and my moods
Shifting my view
No longer at war with my emotions
Used to keep them in behind words unspoken
When I thought I was broken
Till I let the gates of my mind open
My hearts still copin', speeding up and slowing
As I'm living in a world of never knowing

I find the simple things can give me wings
When the rope is tightening
Appreciating the breeze lightens its grip
It can flip my mind from the dark side to the light
Without needing to struggle or fight
Helps to rewrite the story and remind me things are transitory

Complicated circumstances as my brain dances around possible chances
I don't want to rush anything but I don't want my heart to sing if there's nothing here
So I keep my mind as clear as I can and don't let myself obsess as I've done in the past
Burned so bright so fast it would've never last
I'm in a better place, used to feel lonely now I like my space
I've got a bit of the feels but I won't let it feel real to protect myself
From a situation that would be causing so much mental complication if I let it
So I don't sweat it, let myself enjoy her company but I'm busy lovin' me
The situations hard to read so for now I'll let it be
The future's always full of possibility

At the end of the night when I turn out the light
At the end of my life when my eyes lose their sight
Spaces between behind the scenes
Places I've seen behind the screen
A place of dreams
I've known the darkness
The nights that were starless
What shaped this external hardness
I know the light
The other side of the darkest night
When this play ends
When the daylight ends
When my soul transcends
What will I remember?
Will it bloom like Spring or die like December?
But after every year there's a new one
I wonder when it all begun
There's the big bang but even nothing existed before it
In my mind, it's a strange thing and hard to ignore it

These feels are real, the seal on my heart has faded
Trying to get sleep but thoughts of you have invaded
The truth is the past left me with bruises
But I know the winning doesn't come without the losses
It's 1 AM and I'm feeling lucid, struck by cupid
This confusion has me feeling stupid
It's true, I begin to question the times I felt you felt it too
Images of you laughing are grabbing my attention
I wanna let you know my intention
I don't usually get distracted, but now you're my distraction
I can't help but feel the attraction when were interacting

Fight these feelings or give in
Either way, I'm at war within
I know I need to slow down this time
I'll trust my gut and ignore the signs
It's just a part of my manic mind
You'd understand if you knew mine
I'd like to know yours more
Even as I write I go back and forth
Like a game of tug-of-war inside
Shove down these feelings and pretend they died
Am I just in denial, how can I break this cycle
I am my own rival
