  • There is a longing here in my heart

    To make you feel the same way I do

    To bring you closer so I can get a good measure of you

    To smell those things that give you scent

    And breathe those words in To […]

    When I was a cloud I would always wonder how the ground saw me. Was I some vacant image floating around high above, was I some ominous presence seeking to cast my victims into shadow , or worse something simply ignored. I don’t want you to feel ignored, I’m always here, and have been it just takes some clouds a little longer to be seen than others.

  • It’s a terror waking up

    Knowing there’s so much left in the day

    So many worlds to traverse

    So many moods to explore

    And don’t forget there’s always tomorrow

    Like you can’t forget yesterday

    Or […]

  • While I agree it’s a shame that people are finding themselves in this position, if I had those same risks, you bet 150miles wouldn’t keep me away. I’ve driven further for much much less. I hope you find this vaccine soon.

    So you can look at it

    And think these things here with me

    Because that’s the closest we’ll ever be

    Its not too bad

    Sharing this same headspace

    Ive found its easier to get into balance with one hand in the fire and one clenched around a pen. Thanks for your comment.

  • benventure commented on the post, Worn Out 8 months ago

    Whatever it is you choose, I appreciate it. It took a long time to get here.

    Cant stop these racing thoughts

    They are crashing through my mind

    I think Im here, by then Im over there

    And the gnawing pain just chews away

    And I know itll be ok

    And I know itll be ok

    And […]

    • I will say…I don’t comment on the post I read from you because I feel so heavy hearted and as if my limbs feel like bricks after I do. But I realized….. that is your ability to bring the reader to this place. Which is actually a talent/gift not many have. So I ask myself….do I comment on the gifted writer….or do I comment on the pain?

    • Your writing is very impressive.
      I have to say that if you are truly feeling pain in this way, may time heal your wounds. May you find peace within. ✨

      • Ive found its easier to get into balance with one hand in the fire and one clenched around a pen. Thanks for your comment.

    • My racing thoughts only slow down with a pen in my hand. Then I lay down the pen and let them face again. I Always win the race. The pen has more to glory in.💋

    • I was a very sad person looking for purpose in my life back then. I was so blessed to have been part of the old days of thoughts. I miss everyone. I remember what you wrote very well. You put simple and complex thoughts into interesting rhymes and riddles. You were the most creative writer back then that I knew. I loved trying to figure out the thoughts pouring from your mind. I love you Ben and I have thought of everyone here often over the years. I am glad we found each other again. Hugs and Love.

    • Where is “there”, Mary Jo?

    The first time I saw her, I was amazed,
    she was unimaginably beautiful,
    everything I had ever known to wonderful and gorgeous was her.
    Every mistake and misplaced thought
    Led back to her,
    and she was so calm
    and so cool
    and knew me so well
    better than me
    because God she was my mother
    And she’ll always go on.

    I am a moonrock, and as such I’ve seen all this so much, so many times before. They come along with their evolution and say “Oh I thought this up, never could this be without me!” And as a rock I regard and accept it.
    And a small time passes, and I am still just what I’ve always been, and the thing says “Oh look at how far I’ve come, where once I…[Read more]
