    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

  • 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 […]

  • 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.

  • White male, gay or other

    What are my pronouns?

    He, she, it, hey you

    I don’t really care.

    Call me what makes you comfie

    I really will be okay

    and I really don’t much care what country you call […]

    • Nice one. I feel the same. I can’t accept that I am supposed to apologize for being something that other’s have chosen to assign to me, even although I am not what they seem to think.

    @kassielassie, with America do your best and hope enough others do the same. See people as humans first and treat them with love indepent of their religion or politics. In the end, we will reap what we sow.

    • 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

    I promise we’re not that way

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

    • 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

  • Hi, does the “read” (past tense) and the unread label work on the notices? I have read the unread several times; or alternatively, I am experiencing time travel; it is hard to say.

    • The easiest answer is yes. If you click on the notice itself in your profile page it will take you directly to the comment. If you click on read it will remove the blue notification number (top right). If you click on unread it will make the notification reappear. Or you can click delete to remove it completely.
