Tomorrow. The unbearable lightness of possibility, But terror weighs more, in the end. What measure of a life? Legacy, contribution, seemingly lofty pursuits — Earthly treasures nonetheless. Hope blocking pursuit. The mind’s eye is dark, Unable or unwilling to see? Experience discarded like trash, Clogging the soul’s gutter, No longer emptying into the ocean. The…

I live inside the glare. A bright, cold, lonely place — disguised as immortality, Filled with hard angles and uncompromising dualism, Populated by plastic expectations and razor disappointment. No humanity to buffer, or conscience to protect, Compass and guiding star lost in the blinding blaze. Faint glimpses of myself flickering by candle flame behind the…

Trapped inside a jail of my own creation, Willingly shackled by a foolish heart, Tethered to emotions destined for destruction.

It is widely assumed that, if you don’t want to have children, you must hate kids and the people who gave birth to them. Not true — some of my best friends are parents! Seriously, while a very small percentage of no-kidders could live quite happily on a planet where all reproduction was banned, I…

If you want to ruin a voluntarily childless person’s mood, ask him or her, “So when are you going to have a baby?” Talk about a powder keg! My child-free friends are not the type to sink into the floorboards, artfully dodge, or tell a white lie when this happens — and most of the…

Most of us are all-too familiar with the end result of disorganization — the hopelessly suffocating out-of-controlledness, that sense of forever-falling-behind overwhelm, the sadistic little voice in your head that loves to point out how many times you’ve tried to get your shit together and failed. (Screw him!) But have you ever given any thought…
