  • I cant say I ever caught your name. My song here once filled the air and evaporated with the years. How things change in a decade. I’m glad your here, at last again. Im here a bit, not as much as i’d like, but here nonetheless. Glad to see you here.

  • hey

    do you know why im here?

    cause i dont

    maybe its to do something really great

    maybe someday itll all hit

    and that purpose will reveal itself

    and Ill fulfill that wonderful purpose

    maybe […]

    • After so many years asking myself that same question, “Why am I here?”, I have come to the conclusion that I am only here to observe, to learn and to use that learning to help me move on further, progress more, spiritually, for the next time. Other times, I just feel that I’m here because someone ‘upstairs’ hold s a grudge… who knows for sure?

    • For me, I still haven’t found my true purpose yet. Right now, I just keep going even though I feel like I can’t because I still want to see what’s next.

  • Thanks Jim, it’s very cathartic for me to shout into the night, I appreciate you for being there to listen to some of it.

  • i thgouht maybe id spend some time

    make my words a little more refined

    but, i think it serves me well

    to spit these things out

    however they may come

    no escapes, no deletes

    they tell me its some […]

    • Your thoughts resonate with some of us Ben, although we don’t always see how or why, as the author. I’ve been there myself, more times than I care to remember. I get the absurd idea that it’s okay to make my mad ramblings public and then someone sees something in them that I would never have been aware of in a million years, until they tell me what they see. Keep doing what you do, writing what you write, because it does make sense to some of us.

      • Thanks Jim, it’s very cathartic for me to shout into the night, I appreciate you for being there to listen to some of it.

    • ‘Shouting into the night’? Been there, done that, for real, in nature. Very fulfilling too!

  • there was a bright light on the horizon

    standing guard of the night

    a small sun setting

    like it has since forever

    it, there, guided my sea faring ancestors

    across vast oceans

    it, there, told […]

    • I love the reference to the seafaring people and the ocean. My first love, my go-to place, my sanctuary is the ocean. Coming from an Island Nation, the Sea has always been a BIG part of my life, personally and through my ancestral heritage too so this resonates with me. Nice one Ben. You have done it again. As usual, your work never disappoints.

  • and my heart breaks

    and my socks weigh too much

    and ill never bed michelengio

    and the sun sets

    and my eyes are heavy

    and im too drunk

    and your not feeling it

    can you speak for me

    can you […]

  • We are breathing the thick summer air

    A gentle breeze making the trees dance above us

    Telling us its ok to sway, its ok to bend

    The sky is painted yellow, orange, and red

    It sings to us in bliss

    We […]

  • a magnificent torch illuminating our path

    attached to the wall

    by some 15th century explorer

    held more life than i could ever imagine

    hundreds of years of passing conversation

    muffled laughs, […]

  • There in that car

    troubled by the emptiness of life

    choosing between wild youth and something else

    what did you expect

    how could we be bitter

    there wasnt anything else

    you caused this

    I love it

    Thanks Jim. It’s always good to be here.

  • I get down on the floor, I roll and tumble and play. I am a feline, a creature of the night. I am a rolling breeze darting between your windows. I am lying in the sun. I am electric, orbiting my world. Attack, play, destroy, I know I am the better of two worlds. Shaking wings, muddled shrieks, brilliant red.

  • benventure wrote a new post, who am i 8 months ago

    who am i

    to you, mostly, some words on a screen

    just some impression

    of emotion and inspiration and ignorance

    a voice here in the void

    howling into infinity

    forever

    but to me, maybe thats […]

  • you are very brave and wonderful. how do we change? well we stand outside and let the sun warm our face and wind fan our hair. we follow that internal compass that points directly to our center.

  • benventure commented on the post, Lost in Life 8 months ago

    and we say to ourselves, “slow down, stop doing so much”, and we’re haunted by it. haunted by both the thought of slowing down and the fact that we cant.

  • there are some places i go, when my head is too scattered. its a cold place or warm when i need it

    and i feel like fire and oceans and rain

    and i cannot stop this kinda mind

    where it kinda rains

    and […]

    thanks jim, ive always found it to be that we’re either climbing a mountain or rolling down it

  • benventure wrote a new post, hmph 1 year ago

    Has it gone,

    Is this really it

    this place?!

    This fucking place

    These last remnants of the old ship

    that led us to adventure

    that forced us here

    I think maybe that time is gone

    where the […]

      Time moves us all enexorably forward, we can never go back, only look back with memory. The people we are today are not the same as the people we will be tomorrow, time has moved us on. Nothing in nature repeats – it just seems like it does, and in an ever evolving but decaying universe, we are compelled to obey the entropic cycle and succumb to the inevitability of change, there are no exceptions.

    • Everything begins, and ends in the mind. Everything. Before anything is created, the thought, the spark, begins in the mind. We can have an active mind, (perhaps over-active?), or we can be brain dead but as long as we give birth to the creations in our mind, as long as we keep giving our experiences, our creations, a little tlc and CPR even, then they stay alive. They are not gone, they are only tucked away in the file box of our mind for when we want to bring them out again and relive them, maybe even change them.

      Great work Ben. As always your words are inspirational, motivational and make me think. I like that.

    • I have done some ‘past life regression’ stuff and what I have gained from that does indeed fit into my present life experience.

    it shakes around until it belches out into the atmosphere. those words we call thoughts beat ever faster, echoing through our lives, making us a finely shaded grey of obscure words.

    Grown and obscure

    And Everyone telling you to endure

    but maybe you cant do it

    maybe your not worth it

    where is your worth

    tied up here in some meaningless company

    some crackpot scheme

    • Everyone has their path, their niche to follow in life. The trick is in finding which is yours. I’m still searching, more than halfway through.
