  • 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

    can you […]

    • 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.

  • You charming little notch in the windowsill

    How many mornings have you captured

    Have you heard our madness

    Im ashamed

    I promise we’re not that way

    Love is our language

    We’re working on it

    I […]

    As the son of a lightkeeper I find a lot of myself both protected from the wave and one with it, we kids would follow the tide as it shown us some path to new sands. I leapt into world half foot and half fin, I’m glad your here to share this light.

    Thanks Jim, I’m glad its been consistent for all these long years.

  • And there is a bristle left of the dusk

    something left to grab on to as we strafe further into the night

    I know we wont make it, we were coastal cast on a deep valley

    between two contesting […]

    • Nice. As always (as I remember), your words are so descriptive and build the image in our minds-eye so that we are not only reading your words but seeing them too. I still like your writing friend.

    • I think I would have enjoyed the solitary nature of the old lighthouse keepers back in the day. Now, of course, it’s all electronically managed and the lighthouse keepers are but a distant memory.

      • Awesome reveal Ben. I never knew this, why would I? Nice to see that you appreciate that time in your life too. Thanks for sharing.

  • there are bodies and cadavers and hopes and and dreams alike. There are we here, the treetop shadows, the winds and whispers that hope you continue, that live for story. Don’t fall prey to the age of celebrity, there are plenty here, some a little more verbose than others

  • yeah it’s kind of what i’m doing. And in a blink its all gone

  • ive been thinking recently

    about this impermanent place

    where we bear ourselves

    and while my heart hangs heavy

    i can say it makes me glad

    to write out into the oblivion

    to meet someone, some […]

  • And it’s coughing

    And it’s aching

    And it’s breathing

    And it’s taking

    Everything from me

    My dear.

    And theres nothing I can do

    And I’m bound to do anything

    And everything I can

    To […]

  • its that kind of wishy washy thinky thoughty that brings us up to those words. It wouldnt take too much to get us back there. This place is hard to navigate, hard to communicate. I grabbed a lot of thoughts before is went away, I dont know if PM’s exist here but if your original thoughts was the same username, Ill see what I have.

    We write…[Read more]

  • Do you ever watch shows, or videos from a few years back

    and think to yourself, “where is your mask?! go put it on”

    and wish you could go back and hope and hope and hope

    and lying to yourself say that […]

    • Yes….I sometimes look forward to finding movies from the 70’s to watch. I don’t exactly know why….I wasn’t even a teenager in the 70’s. And no…I don’t even think about mask if I am into a good movie.

      As for the rest of the write……… sigh.

  • Where can we go when all options fail

    To those comfortable normals

    Those shows, those albums, those cozy dens of degenerates

    And why would we stay there?!

    Is it better than the life we live […]

  • 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 […]

  • Bailey and Profile picture of benventurebenventure are now friends 1 year, 8 months ago

  • 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.

  • I guess I’ll just put something here

    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

    I’ve got this […]

    • Great description of an interesting place 🧠
      If you ever saw ” Labyrinth” the movie…..the maze is what its like inside my head ☺️
