    Inside Chelsea Today

    The cold, formed plastic beneath my bottom feels oddly comforting
    It's just a normal lawn chair sitting in my backyard
    But to me it seemed like a vehicle into the past on a good seat
    As I sat there with the dull wind in my eyes I reflected upon my day

    Like any other day in my life the time passed with a sharp lethargy
    Simply sliding along at it's own fancy as time usually does
    Carrying a world of dreams and tears on it's intangible wings
    Days like these are ones I live for, to enjoy every moment slowly

    Now, I prefer to be awake at night, when everything is seemingly serene
    When in actuality the world enters a surreal realm of almost true fantasy
    So I stayed up as long as a could, until the small dawn lights pierced my window
    Shortly after a dream clawed its way into my head I was awoken


    The mourning after sunup was at a peak in beauty today, a new glow found
    Light glancing in through the blinds rose and fell over the couch and table
    Making genteel figures that danced over the bright beige of our couch
    I imagined myself dancing with the light, the star ballerina in a Shakespearean play

    Car rides are things I've come to enjoy, especially ones with good music
    I had half that today, when I went out with my family and a friend
    Just a regular old car ride going down the residential streets that fill Elmwood
    Although, the ride itself would have reached a new height without the rap music

    Dinner came and went, it was hot on my tongue for I had not let it cool
    Sarcasm and bitterness were flung around my ears like always
    My home world changes in such a mercurial fashion, you'd be amazed
    Angry word slurs of hate march in tandem with witty remarks with a smile

    I moved from that lawn chair ages ago to write down my changing thoughts
    This city I live in, Winnipeg, I long to be out there in the crowd, with the people
    To see the different people, to feel the thrill of being a part of a bigger nothing
    Thriving on a nectar, an ambrosia of civilization and life

    That was my day from mourning until now, the hours approaching dusk
    Night fall will soon come too, bringing down it's veil of sometimes cruel stars
    Maybe I'll feel a deep movement in myself tomorrow and put it onto paper
    Who knows for sure, but telling you all this feels oddly comforting

    The funny thing is, none of that yap is a lie.

    I tried writting a different poem today, one more me, full of dark morbidity. I tried so hard to find the spark for the poem; I listened to music, read some of the poems here, flipped through random books... nothing.

    So I went outside and sat around on the lawn chairs. I walked over to the fence and talked with Terri and her friends.. then sat back down in my chair and the cooling effect the chair had my bottom was my insparation...

    I feel kinda selfish and a tad guilty that this thing is all about my day, my life. I'm not really use to having the spotlight on me. So if seems kind of forced or unsure, pay it no mind I guess.

    Enjoy!
    the love you withhold is the pain you carry.
